What’s At The Market This Week

THURSDAYS from 10:00 to 2:00

What are your favorite fall vegetables? Mine are fresh beets and kale. Oh, and I don’t want to forget sweet potatoes. But I can’t leave out crispy radishes and fresh-picked lettuce. And I do love acorn and butternut squash and broccoli and did I mention fresh beets? Okay, so I can’t pick just one and I’m glad I have access to all of these and more at our Market.If you love fresh beets, then here’s one of my favorite recipes. Wash beets to remove any soil, then cut off the tops and any long roots. Wrap in foil and roast at 400 degrees about 45 minutes or until fork tender. When cool enough to handle, the skin will rub off easily with a paper towel. Cut into wedges, drizzled with balsamic vinegar, add salt and pepper to taste and top with crumbled feta cheese.

This week at the Market—fresh beets, broccoli, cabbage (regular and Chinese), bok choy, collards, kale, lettuces, mustard greens, onions, potatoes, squash (summer and winter squash—acorn, butternut, spaghetti), sweet potatoes, Swiss chard, tomatoes (slicing, cherry). There may be a few peppers and eggplant still available and a surprise or two always shows up. Free-range eggs, local jams, jellies, and pickles are available.

Phal’s Café will be here with Asian noodle bowls, spring rolls, kebobs and wonton soup; Snyder Family Farm will be here with antibiotic/hormone-free pastured-raised beef, pork and poultry; Real Country Sausage will be here with a variety of nitrite-free pork sausages and My Empanada will be here with a selection of this fun hand-held pie.
Unkol Chuck will be here with old-fashioned Brunswick Stew (made in a cast-iron kettle); Chicken Salad Chick will be here with delicious and innovative chicken salads; Great Harvest Bread will be here with a lot of local baked goods; and Cakes by Jen will be here some some fun fall additions to her delicious line-up—like Pumpkin Spice and Apple Cider donut cakes!

With the holidays ahead, check out our local artisans with one-of-a-kind crafts.

We’re here every Thursday from 10 until 2 in the parking lot of The Great Big Greenhouse!
