October 3rd – Week 23

Scroll down to see individual vendor product offering and pre-order instructions for this week’s market

It seems we may be in for some frosty nights this week, brrrr! Be sure to cover up (Thursday & Friday night) your remaining veggie garden and any favorite flowers that you want to last a bit longer.
Frost is a curious thing. For some fruits and veggies it makes them sweeter and more tasty for others it just flat out kills 🥀. Spinach, carrots, and some apple varieties gets sweeter after a frost. But pepper, tomato, and basil plants will all be susceptible to a frost so be sure to cover them up.
That said, this week may be the final week for some of the delicious fruits and veggies that have been appearing on our tables for the past month or so. Be sure to stock up this week so that you are able to enjoy them as long as possible.

With covid concerns continuing, please know that our vendors are doing their best to keep you and yours safe while attending market. Check out our covid safety measures to learn more. Don’t feel comfortable shopping the market? Many of our vendors offer the option to pre-order for curbside pickup. Scroll down to find vendor specific instructions for pre-ordering.

This market will stay a safe and healthy place to shop if we all take measures to protect each other.  Remember, we’re producing for you and we’re in this together!

Beef, Steaks, Pork, Poultry, Cheese, Eggs, Cherry, Red, & Heirloom Tomatoes, Sage, Parsley, Cilantro, Leeks, Onions, Shallots, Honey Nut Squash, Kale, Chard, Broccoli, Purple Cauliflower, Cabbage, Celery, Carrots, Beets, Sweet Peppers, Eggplant, Lettuce, Arugula, Salad Greens, Pumpkins & Gourds of every size and color, Delicata, Butternut, Acorn, & Spaghetti Squash, Sweet Bread, Scones, Muffins, Cupcakes, Cookies, Bars, Pies, Artisan Bread, Coffee, Lemonade, Kombucha, Breakfast Burritos, Sweet & Savory Baked Goods, Custom Wood Accessories, Honey, Sauces, Pickles, and much more.

Shooting Star Farm
Just three outdoor markets to go and frost is on the way! If I get nipped with frost this Friday morning, it will be the earliest frost on my farm in a number of years. I am coverings some sensitive crops and harvesting others. Always a mad dash. Market will be a chilly one, but there are still lots of goodies. This week I’ll continue to have some tomatoes from the hoophouse: a few cherry types, red, heirloom, and possibly romas. They’ll stay under cover at Market until the temps rise. Basil is likely going to be gone. It doesn’t do well in temps colder than 40 degrees. But I will have sage, parsley, and a bit of cilantro for herbs. Also leeks, onions, shallots, honey nut and possibly butternut winter squash, kale, chard, broccoli, purple cauliflower, green and red cabbage, celery, carrots, beets, mixed sweet peppers (all colors), a bit of baby eggplant, and a smattering of lettuce, arugula, and salad greens. Bundle up and come on out.
If you’d like to pre-order for Saturday Market pick-up, you can do so here. Click on the “order for pick-up or delivery” tab. Ordering is open from 6pm Wednesday through 7pm Thursday. See you Saturday!

Two Onion Farm
Hello! Juli is excited to join Mineral Point Farmers’ Market with delicious organic apples, applesauce and apple butter. Juli will be at the market 4 times this fall: 8/29, 9/12, 9/26 and 10/10. Our farm is 10 minutes from the market by Belmont. Our apple varieties offer diverse flavors and textures that you won’t find in the supermarket. We’ve selected these varieties because they taste great and because they are naturally resistant to diseases. Our applesauce and apple butter are cooked from organic apples grown in our orchard and seasoned gently with spices. We add no sugar. Our apple butter is delicious served with cheese and crackers or spread on toast, bread, and pancakes. Do you like to make your own applesauce? We have slightly-blemished apples for sale at a discounted price ($1.45/lb for orders up to 100 lbs; $1.25/lb for 100-250 lbs, $1.05/lb for 250+ lbs). These are perfect for baking, making applesauce, drying, or juicing. Email twoonionfarm@gmail.com to place an order in 5# increments. Juli will be at the market 4 times this fall: 8/29, 9/12, 9/26 and 10/10. Please specify the date you’d like to pick up the processing apples. Visit our website to learn more about us!
