Normally, Beth Carson and market manager Alice send this report out on Fridays (which I’m going to start posting here on the notebook, too.) But since it’s Turkey-Day Eve, it’s got to come a little early this week. Keep on reading to see what you can find farm-fresh for your pre- and post-Thanksgiving table:
Today (Nov. 26) on the Market:
Produce: onions, turnips, potatoes, cabbage (Bent Mountain and gourmet), butternut squash, sweet potatoes, apples (all types!), and pumpkins.
Baked Goodies: Mr. Malouf is on the market this morning for those of you who have pre-ordered rolls, cakes, and pies in advance. He also has brought extras for those of us still needing items to round out our Thanksgiving bounty. We do not expect other baked goodies this morning, but we do have apple butter, jams, and jellies.
Other: We have local honey this morning and some pretty Frazier Fir wreaths and pine roping to decorate your home with for the holidays.
Friday and Saturday : Alice says to expect to see all of the above plus: kale and mustard greens, organically raised produce, , artisan breads, cookies, doggie treats, garlic, jams and jellies, black walnuts, Irish soda bread, cookies, brownies, heavenly coffee cake, croissants, chow chow, herb biscuits, and fresh eggs .
Gardeners! Accent Nurseries will be on the market this Saturday with lots of landscaping plants. Fall is an excellent time for planting because it gives your new plants time to get lots of new roots established before next summer’s heat sets in. It’s not too late to plant now!
Although the Farmers Market will be closed tomorrow for the Thanksgiving Holiday, it will open again on Friday and Saturday. The Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving are usually the kickoff days for holiday wreath and roping sales, and our farmers have some of the prettiest greenery around!
