As the market heads into hibernation, we want to thank our tireless farmers for the bounty they provided. From the first asparagus to the last acorn squash we have eaten well this season thanks to their labor. We also want to thank you, our customers, who create a welcoming community each Saturday on the plaza.
Stop-by Saturday from 9am-1pm for the last hurrah of 2013. Stock-pile on apples, winter squash, meats, and bread to carry you through the winter. Butternut squash pizza? Apple-maple french toast? Potato Turnip Gratin? All in reach if you prepare with the help of your neighborhood farmers’ market.
Mark your calendars… we’ll be back April 5th for the 2014 season!
