September 5th – Week 19

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

It’s Labor Day weekend! What do you plan to do with your extra day?

With social distancing still in place, you can still find creative ways to get together with friends and family. The weather is set to be spectacular Saturday so why not come up to market and grab all the goodies you need for a great cookout in the backyard. Everyone will love you for it; because let’s be honest, we are all just dying for a little social interaction.

Here are a few ways to make it safe:
Keep 6′ apart – though you’re outside, you still need to maintain 6′ to keep the virus numbers small enough for your immune to handle
Have guest BYOB – that way no one is reaching into the same cooler and touching other peoples beverages
Don’t share utensils – if setting up buffet style, make sure you’ve set things up in individual servings for an easy grab (hint – cupcake liners make grabbing easy)
Prep the bathroom  – make a clear path to the bathroom and keep it stocked with paper towels for touching high touch surfaces.

If you plan accordingly everyone will have a safe & great time. Scroll down to see all the offerings on our tables this week so you can get to planning a fabulous get together. Have a great weekend!

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!

Here is a partial list of items at this week’s market:
Beef, Steaks, Pork, Bacon, Poultry, Cheese, Eggs, Tomatoes of every size shape and color, Salad Mix, Radishes, Onions, Peppers, Green Beans, Beets, Kale, Swiss Chard, Scallions, Basil, Parsley, Sage, Sunflowers, Raspberries, Winter Squash, Pumpkins, Honey, Sweet Bread, Scones, Muffins, Cupcakes, Cookies, Bars, Pies, Artisan Bread, Coffee, Lemonade, Kombucha, Breakfast Burritos, Pickles, Jams & Jellies, Sauces, Sweet & Savory Baked Goods, Custom Wood Accessories, Fresh Cut Flowers, and much more.

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.
