September 19th – Week 21

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

Well, we finally got the rain to go away! Whew, that was a wet week. Our fruit and vegetable crops were happy to have it though and it will help us extend our season a bit longer.

Our produce vendors are working their way through the last of the summer crops, so if you are wanting just one more meal of ???, don’t wait! Things like green beans and tomatoes won’t last much longer. But that also means that sweet peppers, onions, shallots, leeks, and squash can all be added to the menu for September’s cooler weather meals.

As for me, I’m going to give these a try!

Roasted Peppers

Don’t forget to stop up in Water Tower park to get all the ingredients you need for that favorite fall recipe! Hope to see you Saturday!

Shooting Star Farm
I’m writing this update early, and am looking forward to a warmer, drier week ahead. It’s a little difficult to predict my harvest 7 days out, but here goes: New items I’m predicting for Saturday include napa cabbage, green cabbage, shallots and possibly honey nut winter squash. I should also have green beans, scallions, radishes, leeks, green, red, and orange Italian frying peppers, green and yellow bell peppers, shishito peppers, a mix of hot peppers, fennel, curly kale, Lacinato kale, Swiss chard, cherry tomatoes, red slicing tomatoes, and lots of roma tomatoes. I should have salad mix and possibly spinach, but my next crop of lettuce heads is two weeks away. Basil is on the wane in a big way, but warmer weather may bring some back. Other herbs include parsley, sage, and cilantro (finally!). 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 next Saturday. 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 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!
