Harvest and Cooks Notes

  • Skinny Dip Farm

    Bring on the roots! We’re harvesting a bounty of root vegetables including carrots, beets, golden beets, watermelon radish, three types of turnip, daikon and potatoes. Salad greens are still going strong, and if you haven’t tried our broccoli yet, you’re missing out. The delicata winter squash is freakishly sweet.

  • Flapdoodle Bags

    Tote bags!

    TRY THIS | These bags make great gifts and are washable to boot!

  • Martha’s Local Food

    I am making cranberry walnut pesto with organic cranberries from Fresh Meadow Farm, walnuts, local maple syrup and organic extra virgin olive oil from Omega Olive Oil.
    My hot soup will be composed of mustard greens, Plato’s Harvest Farm, peppers and onions from Web of Life Farm, ham hock broth, ham hock from Brown Boar Farm and chock full of additional veggies to be found at the market.
    I will also be preparing a Tomatillo salsa with tomatillos from Skinny Dip farm.

    TRY THIS | Cranberries

    Cranberries are at their peak and we have a beautiful supply at the market. Try using cranberries in some non traditional ways. I like to add them to soups for a bit of color and tartness. They are also lovely added to other pickled vegetables.

  • Blue Heron Arts

    Brand new cozy winter hats in Alpaca and Merino wool!

  • Jenny’s Bread

    With fresh spinach available, I can’t help but make spinach, garlic and feta cheese flatbreads. And honey buns will be back now that I’ve restocked the honey supply-thanks Queen Bee!

    TRY THIS | Peasant Bread

    Peasant Bread goes well with everything! From a simple piece of toast and butter to a vehicle for Martha’s pate to the perfect dip for your soup du jour, peasant bread covers all the bases. What bread and cheese and Crow Farm apples? A simple satisfying meal. What about making one of those huge sandwiches for a crowd? Slice the loaf the long way and fill with your favorite market goodies: Brown Boar sausages, Apponagansett peppers and Bay End onions; mozzarella, Plato’s Harvest tomatoes and basil; Web of Life Farm eggplant parmesan. . .

  • Brown Boar Farm

    We’re taking orders for holiday hams- reserve yours now for delivery before Thanksgiving or before Christmas (please specify)! The average size is 8-10 LBS. Check out the October Price List for pre-ordering details.

  • Crow Farm

    Apples: Macoun, Cortland, McIntosh, Northern Spy, Russet, Spencer, and Empire, Bosc Pears, Lettuce, Tomatoes, Carrots, Kale, Brussels Sprouts, Peppers, Green Beans, and Winter Squash

    TRY THIS | Brussels Sprouts and Bacon

    1.5 lbs of Brussels sprouts
    2-3 tablespoons of melted butter
    4 slices of bacon, diced
    salt and pepper
    aged balsamic vinegar

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Trim the ends and any old outer leaves from the Brussels sprouts. Cut the sprouts in half and toss them with melted butter, salt, and pepper. Dump them on a foil lined baking sheet, making sure to keep everything in one layer. Sprinkle the diced bacon over everything and pop the tray in the oven.The sprouts take about 30-35 minutes to roast, so set your timer for 10 minute intervals x3 to regularly rotate and flip the sprouts ‘n swine. Add seasoning and drizzle some of your favorite vinegar on the finished dish.

  • Rein’s Real Rye

    This week’s varieties: Caraway, RyeBerry and Swedish rye breads. A very small amount of frozen will be available at discounted prices – $2 off a loaf, $1 off a half loaf.

    We’ll be here for all three of the last regular season markets.

  • Copicut Farms

    This week’s cool weather has inspired us to do some slow cooking in the farm house. One of our favorite Fall treats are the stewing hens. Stewing hens are a more traditional breed of chickens and when slow cooked for a soup or a stew, make a delicious rich stock that cannot be achieved with anything else. Stop by and pick one up this week at market, you will not be disappointed!
