July 20th - Week 12

Hello MP Market Goers!


•  THE MINERAL POINT MARKET IS HIRING! 
Do you like to promote community activities? Are you a wizard with social media and FB LIVE! Do you have a sense for business? Are you proficient with a smart phone and computer programs? If so the Mineral Point Market is looking for YOU! We are searching for a person to manage and execute our marketing, promotion and outreach activity for the remainder of the 2019 Market season. This is a paid position, beginning immediately and runs through end of Market season. A minimum of 5 to 7 hours each week will be required. If interested in more details e-mail federman@charter.net by no later than Monday, July 22nd.

Market is gearing up with summer produce! Cucumbers and Zucchini and Green Beans are all starting to come in strong! Our fields are finally starting to catch up after the cool, wet spring. Tomatoes are flowering and beginning to set fruit, Sweet corn is tasseling and the Pumpkins are stretching to their full potential. Pastures are plentiful with the rains and now heat. But as farmers we've got to watch our animals closely in this high heat. Egg and milk production can decrease greatly during high heat. There's always a balance!

Come check out what the scales have given us this week to fill your dinner table.

Here is a partial list of items at this week's market:
Beef, Pork, Bacon, Chicken, Cheese, Eggs, Cucumbers, Zucchini, Bunched White Onions, Bunched Beets, Carrots, Kale, Swiss Chard, Kohlrabi, Fennel Bulb, Cilantro, Dill, Basil, Parsley, Lettuce, Salad Mix, Green Beans, Potatoes, Maple Syrup, Honey, Soup, Beautifully Designed Flower Bouquets, Coffee, Sweet and Savory Baked Goods, Watercolor Paintings, Prints & Cards, Gift Boxes, Chair Massages, Wood Crafts, Kids Activities, and much more. Come and check it all out!

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

Cafe 43
Many of you know us as the little spot next to Tequila Point. We thought it might be nice to share a taste of the café with you all. Tim & Richard, myself, and Richard’s mom have been working on some sweet and savory offerings (several of which are café favorites). All of our recipes are scratch made in small batches right down the street in the kitchen of the Old Royal Inn. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do! We will also be serving hot and cold Colectivo coffee (roasted in Milwaukee and served in the café). Thank you for stopping by. We look forward to a wonderful season!

Wow... A year flies by fast! Last year at this time, our little Carly was 'chillin' at the UWCH under the care of amazing nurses, doctors and surgeons. For all of you who know her; the broken leg didn't slow her down once!
We'll be back this weekend with scones, muffins, a fun new cheesecake, bars, muffin breads and more! Stop by Water Tower Park for the Mineral Point Market and see what all of us have to offer! Eat local; eat fresh; and come see Carly run! (Like a border collie puppy...!)

Marr's Valley View Farms
It's BLT time - don't miss out on this seasonal treat - it won't be long and it will be gone for another year!  We're a bit biased of course, but the most important BLT ingredient has to be BACON from Marr's Valley View Farms!  We have our Applewood, Hickory, Maple, Pepper varieties to choose from.
Also select from a wide variety of steaks, brats, hot dogs and burgers for your grill.  We encourage you to pre-order or come to the Market early for best selection.  Need a large quantity or can't make it to Market Saturday morning?  Please call, 608-987-2097, and we will make other arrangements for your order.  
A reminder that we are offering pick-up of our Farm Connection Meat CSA at Market this year again - ask us on Saturday for details and how to join.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone Saturday morning under the WaterTower.  Thanks for your continued support and we look forward to servicing your needs with our full line of Pork and Black Angus Beef products.

Mummu's Makeover
Hi All!   I guess if we thought it was hot last week, we were quite wrong....... according to what is predicted for this week, anyway. I did go to Market last Sat.(much to the surprise of many!) and was able to hang on in the heat.  But this week I think I will be at home in Cobb.  If the forecast changes any for the better I will attempt it again but as of now, I'm saying not.  If you do need a quick gift and I'm not there, please feel free to call me at 623-2592 and we can set up a time for you to shop at my house.  Do keep in mind it IS a crafting house and fabric WILL meet you at the front door!!  Do Keep Cool!!!    Mummu
Pam Rosecky
Hi this is Pam Rosecky and I will be doing chair massages again this year. $ 1.00 per minute working shoulders neck and arms for a relaxing experience while under big oak trees. See you there.
Scrappin' With Joni
I will have handmade cards and gift boxes for all kinds of events. My table will also have cards for all occasions; birthdays, anniversaries, new babies, get well, sympathy.   Sending a handmade card is a great way to say “I care”.  Check out my journals, notepads and book marks.  Follow my Facebook page Scrappin with Joni to see some of the product I will have at the market.  I look forward to seeing you at the Mineral Point Market, stop by and say hi.  I will be under the red canopy.
Sitka Salmon
We will be back at market July 27th with a variety of wild-caught Alaskan seafood.
Shooting Star Farm
Start looking up recipes for cucumbers and zucchini! I should have plenty this week. Both are producing like mad with the heat and need to be picked nearly every day. A new item this week will be fresh, bunched white onions. The onion and the nice part of the greens are both usable. I like to cook the onion tops with zucchini slices, fresh basil, olive oil and salt and pepper. Toss with pasta or eat by alone. Yum! The first green beans are finally appearing. My harvest for Saturday will likely be small, but I’ll bring what I can. Other items this week include bunched beets, carrots, kale, Swiss chard, kohlrabi, fennel bulb, cilantro, dill, basil, and parsley. The heat and humidity this past week (or two) makes it challenging to grow greens. However, I will have some smaller mixed lettuce heads and romaine, along with a limited amount of salad mix. Not sure if I’ll be able to get enough arugula to offer it separately from the salad mix, but I’ll try. See you Saturday!
Sweet Earth Garden & Vintage China
Hello friends, Sweet Earth Gardens will be at the market this week.  Barbara
Usborne Books and More with Katie
Hi! I'm sponsoring a kids activity corner once a month for your kids to play and learn within your view at market. While at market you can browse my wide range of children’s books related to plants, animals, farming and cooking. These books are a great way to bond with your kids and get them involved in all of the wonderful things related to fresh food and farmers markets! Throughout the summer my booth will carry a different theme, and at times portions of my proceeds will go to benefit local groups and organizations.  You can always shop my link online or contact me directly if you don’t see what you’re looking for at the booth https://d8159.myubam.com/1240701 or benishk4@gmail.com.

I'm a small local woodworking shop specializing in a variety of handcrafted and engraved products.  We will be displaying a variety of handcrafted engraved cutting boards, rulers and key fobs, note pads, a lap table and hand knit scarves.  We take custom engraving orders.
