Hello MP Market Goers!

Can you believe this weather? Wow, we are so lucky 🍀 to be enjoying warm temperatures into October! True, it’s not quite as enticing to have all things pumpkin spice 🎃 when it’s still in the 70’s. However, it is amazing what the gardens are STILL producing! This week grab a beautiful bouquet 💐 from Sweet Earth Gardens and Vintage China! The warm temps won’t last forever; take advantage of the smiles these flowers offer before they’re gone!

But do you know what makes this weather the best? Being able to have an outdoor market in October without having to dress like you’re heading out for a snowmobile ride. Saturdays forecast is sunny, breezy, and warm. Before the weather turns c..c..cold, start the weekend out right with a trip to market and get the fuel you need to tackle your fall chores.

Join us this Saturday morning in Water Tower Park, Business Hwy 151 at Madison Street, Mineral Point! 8:30 to 11:00 a.m.

From our local fruit, veggie, & flower growers, to our local beef, pork, & poultry raisers, to our local cheese and artisan producers we thank you for shopping local and supporting our businesses.

Bures Berry Patch
Unfortunately, we’re busy on the farm this weekend and can’t get away to come to market. However, we are open at the Patch Thursday-Sunday from 10-5. And raspberries are still coming in strong and there should be plenty available at the Patch this weekend! If you’re looking to freeze some, now would be the time to pre-order an 8 pint pail! Call the Patch to reserve yours for pickup 608-924-1404. We’ve also got tons of fun and funky fall decor, including mini pumpkins, big pumpkins, gourds, colorful flat pumpkins, and much more. And as usual we’ll have our honey, jams, dilly beans, and farm fresh eggs at the Patch. For the latest shovel on what’s happening in the Patch, head to our website, follow us on Facebook or Instagram or sign up for our e-newsletter. Hope to see you either at market or in the Patch soon!

I’m also available for portrait sessions, for families and seniors. I also photograph properties so if you have a special place you would like captured, please let me know.

Marr’s Valley View Farm
We have some exciting news to share with you that’s been literally years in the making and discussion! It went something like this:
“Should we – shouldn’t we – yes – no – I’m not sure – oh why not!” Ever been there?
We’ve taken the plunge and are proud to introduce to you our BRAND NEW E-COMMERCE WEBSITE https://marrsvvfmeats.com.
You can now place your orders directly on the website for pickup at the Market on Saturday mornings!
A few points to note when placing your order on https://marrsvvfmeats.com:
– you will have to create an account to view our prices which you will have to do anyway to place your order so do that first thing;
– orders must be placed by noon on Thursday to guarantee we can get them packed and send you the total due prior to market day;
– when you place your order note the total is only an estimate – once we pack your order we will send you the total due via email;
– for now payment will be by check or cash when you pick up;
– orders can be placed any time during the week;
– if you run into any issues feel free to call Lois 608-574-2899 or email marrsvvmeats@gmail.com;
– please note this is a labor of love and work in process – more details, information and products will be added soon;
– one of the best parts is you will be able to continue to order through the website during the off market season for pickup or delivery;
– and yes of course you can still come to the Market and purchase from us like usual without placing your order online if that is what you prefer.
October is Pork month in Wisconsin so we are celebrating at the Mineral Point Market with $1 off retail on Bratwursts and Pork Shoulder Roasts. Time to stock up on Brats while it’s still grilling weather – don’t forget your Packer brats for the game; get your Pork Shoulder Roasts for the smoker and colder Wisconsin months ahead.
See you Saturday Morning 8:30 to 11:00 under the WaterTower, Business Hwy 151, Mineral Point, WI!
All of us at Marr’s Valley View Farms
