October 31st Market News | 2013 Outdoor Season

Program Details

Community Hosts | The Greater Plymouth Food Warehouse | 2:30-6:30

More and more people throughout the South Shore are making trade-offs between paying for food and paying for other necessities like heat for their homes.
Given this startling trend of growing food insecurity and hunger, it is clear there is a direct need for more quality, nutritious food for this region’s low-income individuals and families.

In the fall of 2002, SSCAC formed the Greater Plymouth Food Warehouse with the goal of getting more nutritious food to more hungry people in the most cost-effective way through coordinated food pick-up, transport, storage and distribution.


Music | Ray Papile | 2:30-6:30 

Easy Listening sounds with a deep, soothing, melodic voice to match.

Harvest and Cooks Notes


  • Plato’s Harvest Organic Farm

    Well, well, last market… sort of. We’ll have one week off, then be back, but inside, warm and lighted. Come on out and scare the farmer this Halloween.

    I’ll be bringing arugula, beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, chard, garlic, kale, leeks, lettuce, onions, potatoes, turnips, spinach, sweet potatoes, and winter squash.

    Know your farmer – don’t take food from strangers! Thanks for your support.

  • Crow Farm


    Apples: Spencer, Macoun, McIntosh, Cortland, and Russet, lettuce, tomatoes, winter squash, brussels sprouts

  • Blue Heron Arts

    Lots of new wool and alpaca hats and scarves, new pottery!

  • Copicut Farms

    As the outdoor market winds down so does our season on the farm. Only a few batches of chicken are left in the pastures and the turkeys are strutting around their field enjoying the cool breezes and sunshine. It has been a wonderful season at the Plymouth Market and we can’t wait to see all of our Plymouth friends throughout the Fall and Winter at the indoor market.

  • Skinny Dip Farm

    Cold weather only makes our root crops and greens sweeter! We’ll be bringing a wide variety of root crops, baby salad greens, head lettuce, kale, chard, garlic, onions, leeks, winter squash. We’ll have the last of our summer eggplant and peppers. New this week: super sweet parsnips. All certified organic and totally delicious.

  • Web of Life Farm

    Its a little sad this time of year, when you pick the end of the crops, and till them under. But the one thing I’ve always loved about farming is wiping the slate clean, and starting anew next season.

    As we end the summer season, Steph and I would like to thank all the customers who took the time to come by our table. With an extra special thanks to the “”regulars””… the ones that we KNOW will be there every Thursday with a smile and a kind word despite the weather.

    You keep us farming, and you have our deepest thanks. Keep your ear to the ground about next season, you might be surprised which direction the Web of Life will be spinning next. Meet me at the market!

    TRY THIS | Fermented Radishes

    Ingredients
    3 1/2 cups radishes, sliced
    Fermented garlicy radish’s
    2-3 garlic cloves, peeled
    3 tablespoons unrefined sea salt
    4 cups filtered water

    Preparation
    Thoroughly wash and dry your jar and lid before getting started.
    Prepare your salt brine by mixing the salt and water together and stirring until dissolved.
    Pack radishes and garlic into your fermenting jar.
    Pour salt brine over the radishes until completely covered, leaving at least one inch of space between the top of the brine and the lid.
    Place a weight inside the mouth of the jar to keep your radishes under the brine. Cover tightly and set up the air lock if you’re using one.
    Drape jar with a towel and let radishes sit on your counter for 3-7 days, depending on how sour you like them.* When they’ve reached the level of sourness you like remove the weight from inside the jar and transfer to the fridge.
