July 31st – Week 14

 Scroll Down for a complete list of who will be vending this week

Hello MP Market Goers!

What a relief to finally get some rain!☺️🌧️ Finally, a break from dragging the hoses around the yard. It always amazes me how the weeds just keep right on growing despite the lack of rain. 😤

Have you had trouble keeping up with the weeds? Did they swallow up your veggie plants?
⭐ We’ve got you covered! It’s our job to plant, water, weed, and harvest.
💡 Why not reap our harvest and head on up to Water Tower Park this Saturday morning?
There you’ll find an abundance of veggies and fruit, meats and cheeses, all just waiting for you to pick them off their tables.
No back breaking work required 😉

We look forward to seeing you this Saturday in Water Tower Park, Business Hwy 151 at Madison Street, Mineral Point! 8:30 to 11:00 a.m.

🎶Do you know someone who’s a musician? We’d love to get more music back to the market! Signup here to perform at market: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0844ABAB2AA4FD0-music🎶

Marr’s Valley View Farm
It’s July Beef month in Wisconsin! Prepping for meals means safely thawing your beef. Yes there is a proper way to thaw which the Wisconsin Beef Council can help us with – just click here for thawing tips and more.
We are stocked with Ground Beef to the Ribeye Steaks and everything in between. If you are like us, you are a lover of weekend family breakfasts that include Bacon, Pork sausage and Ham. Bone in and Boneless Butterflied Pork Chops are great grilling companions to our beef products. Even though it is summer we have all varieties of Beef and Pork Roasts on hand – all of which are great on the grill. Our Stew Meat makes the perfect shish-ka-bob meat. Or how about some Beef Short Ribs and Pork Spare Ribs “falling-off-the-bone” slow cooked and covered in your favorite BBQ Sauce.
If you are in need of a large quantity please place your order in advance and we will have it all ready for you to pick up at the Market. Send an email to marrsvvfmeats@gmail.com or call 608-574-2899 by noon Friday and we will have your order ready for pick-up at the Market.

See you Saturday! All of us at Marr’s Valley View Farms.

Scrappin with Joni
Enjoy the end of July with a visit to the Mineral Point Market. I will be there with a great selection of paper products; cards for all occasions, covered journals, book marks, gift card holders, etc. Follow my Facebook page Scrappin with Joni to see some of the products I will have at the market. I look forward to seeing you at the Mineral Point Market, stop by and say hi. You can find me under the red canopy.

Shooting Star Farm
Summer is in full swing, and although I try to produce lettuce all season long, I have a bit of a gap right now. Between deer damage and poor planning by an unnamed human, I’m short for the next few weeks. I will have some, however, and will also have salad mix and the remaining harvest of summer spinach (large leaved, but mild flavored). Cherry tomatoes are coming on strong, as are heirlooms and saladette tomatoes. The red slicers are slower to come in and I’ll bring all I can. Other items I hope to have include multi-colored and red beets, zucchini, lots of delicious green beans, cucumbers, eggplant, bell and Italian frying peppers, shishito peppers, a few varieties of mildly- hot peppers, white onions, summer leeks, kale, chard, salad mix, basil, cilantro, parsley, and dill. No arugula this week as it’s been too steamy for my current crop and much of it melted. Remember you can preorder for Market pickup from 6pm Wednesday evening until 7pm Thursday. Order here.

Spensley Farm
This week we celebrate summer’s bounty by offering sourdough focaccia with heirloom tomatoes & rosemary, peach & almond tarts, and blackberry hand pies. Of course, we’ll still have some old favorites, like ham & Swiss scones, oatmeal sour cherry, and carrot cake. We are taking preorders until Thursday at 6:00 pm for market pickup between 8:30-11:00 am. Visit our website to place an order  www.spensleyfarm.com or visit us on Facebook & Instagram.
