September 16th - Week 20

Hello MP Market Goers!

Congratulations to Mary Glindinning, winner of last week's market basket drawing. With just 6 weeks left of market that means there's just one drawing left. Don't miss out, next drawing is October 14th!

Well, it is Wisconsin and the weather sure is a changing! Last week we were freezing cold this week summer is back. Now if we could only get a little rain, things are beginning to look a bit brown. But the warm weather sure has helped to move along those favorite late summer items. Tomatoes are at peak, sweet corn is back, and the fall raspberries are finally coming in. 

This is also the time of year when one begins to think about the warm meals they'll be sharing throughout the winter. Pot roast anyone? Or celebrations they'll be having. Duck anyone? You can find it all at the Mineral Point Market, it's the planning ahead that's hard.
Be sure to check out all the vendors this week with a mind toward the upcoming winter and holidays. Need gifts, cards, flowers? Start thinking ahead; in the end it will make everything easier. 

Here is a partial list of items at this week's market: Beef, Pork, Bacon, Chicken, Rabbit, Turkey, Duck, Cheese, Eggs, Apples, Pears, Tomatoes, Eggplant, Peppers, Cucumbers, Watermelon, Cantaloupe, Spinach, Radishes, Fennel, Celery, Lettuce, Salad Mix, Beets, Kohlrabi, Swiss Chard, Kale, Onions, Shallots, Sweet Corn, Raspberries, Potatoes, Garlic, Asparagus Soup, Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, Honey, Maple Syrup, Dilly Beans, Cards, Muffins, Cookies, Bars, Fresh Cut Flowers, and much more. Come and check it all out!

We look forward to seeing you this Saturday morning at Water Tower Park, Business Hwy 151 at Madison Street, Mineral Point! 8:30 to 11:00 a.m.

We're getting busy once again at the Patch! Sweet corn is back and our fall raspberries are in! Lots of deliciousness!

Farmer's Daughters
Hello everyone! The weather feels a bit more summerish, just like Wisconsin! I'm glad to be back this Saturday with items to satisfy your taste buds. And just some hints in leui of the weather... Some of the savory scones pair very well with soup from Happy Hunter Farms. Also, instead of a bread stick or croutons, you can also pair a scone with a fresh salad from Star Farms' beautiful produce. Finish off dinner of beef roast or pork from Valley View Farms, or maybe chicken or duck from Pine Valley Farms or Bryant Family Farms, (don't forget fresh potatoes from Bures Berry Patch) with chocolate treats or fruited baked treats. And while you're shopping for that special meal, grab some fresh cut flowers from Sweet Earth Gardens, and give a special family member(s) a 'you're awesome' with a homemade card from Joni and Charity, or add a new picture to your home from Jan or Mike!
This week I will have scones, muffins, bars, cookies, cake and more! I'm very proud to be a part of this market for the past 6 seasons... And I can't wait to see all of you Saturday and in the years to come!

Magic Light Photography
I will not be at the market this weekend.  I will once again be displaying a large selection of my work at the Driftless Area Art Festival in Soldiers Grove on Saturday and Sunday.  It's a beautiful drive so if you are looking for something to do after you get your market shopping done, it is a great family friendly event.  There will be 80 artists on display, great locally sourced food and live music all weekend long.  Hope to see you in Soldiers Grove!  If you can't make it, you can also view my work anytime at www.magiclightphotography.com or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/mlp.michaeljsmith  I hope to be back at the market on September 30th.
Marr's Valley View Farms
Besides the normal day to day farm activities some in our family have been scrambling the last few weeks to get 2 mustangs and a 1934 Plymouth ready to exhibit at the 2nd Annual Mineral Point Car Show this Saturday at Soldiers Memorial Park. Show starts at noon and goes to 4 p.m. Hope to see you there after we see you at the Mineral Point Market of course.
We are counting down the Saturdays to the final Mineral Point Market of 2017. Only SIX markets left. 
Time to give some serious thought to stocking up on your favorite beef and pork cuts or perhaps live on the edge and try something totally new. If you need a large quantity or just want to pre-order for pick-up at market, e-mail your order to federman@charter.net by 5:00 p.m. on Friday night. We are offering pick-up of our Meat CSA at market this year - ask us on Saturday for details and how to join. See you soon - All of us at Marr's Valley View Farms.

My next market vending in still in limbo, but I will definitely be back at least twice before the season is over.  I will update the newsletter when my schedule becomes clearer.  See you soon!  Cindy  matchbookmagnets@yahoo.com
Mummu's Makeovers aka Susan Marr
I will not be at Market this Sat. I'll be on a sewing/fishing trip to northern MN to see my sister.  She and I will be doing a marathon at our machines (she also makes doll clothes).  When not sewing we will be on a fishing boat with her husband.  Giada says the fish that Mummu catches in MN are "THE best ever!!"  So I have my reputation to uphold.  Anyway, I will be reporting to you all when I get back to let you know for sure when I will be at Market again.  'Til then....Keep Smiling!!    Mummu
Scrappin' With Joni

Shooting Star Farm
It’s hard to believe there are just six markets left. Last week felt like fall; this week feels like summer. So let’s start with the summer veggies still available this week: tomatoes! They have finally peaked. We’ll have plenty of red slicing tomatoes and paste/sauce tomatoes from the field. Cherry tomatoes and heirlooms have slowed down but are still looking good. We have lots of gorgeous eggplant, orange and red sweet peppers, green peppers, cucumbers, watermelon, and cantaloupe. Other veggies include spinach, radishes, fennel, celery, lettuce, salad mix, beets, kohlrabi, Swiss chard, kale, red onions, yellow onions, Italian bottle onions, garlic, and shallots. Should be a beautiful Saturday! Rink, Jenny, and Charlie.
Sweet Earth Garden
Sweet Earth Gardens will be at the market this week.  We will have Hydrangeas, Gerbera Daisies, Cosmos, Double Cosmos, Dahlias, Zinnias,Cone Flowers, Rudbeckias, Cleomes and Sunflowers.
