October 15th - Final Market

Hello MP Market Goers!

Our final market is here! It's been such a fabulous season; we had plenty of heat and lots of rain to go along with it! Usually we have one or the other. It was a great reprieve to have both this season.
We want to thank you for supporting our wonderful small town market each week. We so appreciate this community and its support of our vendors and their products.


When shopping market Saturday be sure to keep in mind your needs throughout the upcoming holiday season. Whether it be baking for company or gifts for teachers and hostesses. The market is full of great consumable products with long shelf lives. Why not give gifts this season that warm the home, heart, and belly of those close to you.

Here is a partial list of items at this week's market: Beef, Pork, Chicken, Eggs, Flour, Pumpkins, Squash, Gourds, Indian Corn, Frozen Sweet Corn, Frozen Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, Beets, Radishes, Celery Root, Leeks, Napa Cabbage, Bok Choy, Broccoli, Kale, Salad Mix, Arugula, Lettuce, Onions, Asian Greens, Radicchio, Frisee Endive, Carrots,  Tomatoes (hopefully), Peppers, Spinach, Herbs, Watercolor gifts, Dilly Beans, Honey, Maple Syrup, Goat Milk Soap, Coffee, Salsa, Jam, BBQ Sauce, 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.

Chestnut Hill Studio
I will be at market this week with my original watercolor and colored pencil drawings.  I am exploring sky and water this year and focusing on places rather than things. An expanding line up of ceramic tiles will include mosaic back-splashes and table tops.  I am hoping to offer custom pieces made to order.  
I will have Jewelry only until the current inventory is sold out. Anyone interested in private watercolor painting lesson please stop by. I teach two people at a time at the rate of $10/hour each. My course is eight lessons long.
Happy Hunter Farms
Happy Hunter Farms will be at market this week. Showcasing soup, BBQ sauce, salsa, and jams & jellies
James' Pine Valley Farm
This week I will have whole chickens, half chicken packages, leg/thigh packages and breast packages.  Also I will have several varieties of cheese from both Hooks Cheese and Brunkow Cheese.  May have a few dozen eggs.  See you Saturday 
Lacey's Lathers
It is with a heavy heart that I would like to announce that Lacey’s Lathers will be suspending all sales at the end of 2016. Due to a combination of events:  a recent promising job, a growing family and some extended family illness I have decided I will be taking a break from the soap and lotion business for the near future.
I would like to thank all my customers for their past and present purchases and support!!!  I could not have asked for a better town then Mineral Point, and community then southwest Wisconsin to grow and run a business! The people I have met and experiences I have been through have been amazing to say the least!!!
For those of you wondering if you can still stock up on your favorite products, you can! We still have a great selection of soaps available and we will be using up our remaining solid lotion bar ingredients in the coming weeks. Orders will be filled on a first come first serve basis. We will finish our year at the Mineral Point Market, Fennimore, Argyle, and Lancaster Craft Fairs. Soaps can last up to 5 years when stored in normal temperatures and lotion bars have a shelf life of 2 years if kept under 70 degrees.
Please call, email, text, or facebook me with your orders. (608)574-9829 laceyslathers@yahoo.com

I will not be at the market this weekend.  My fall schedule has been filled by other obligations and as a result, my market season has come to an end for this year.  My work is available at the High Street Gallery, open Friday-Sunday, and my cards are available at the Mineral Point Collection.  I am also on the Fall Art Tour once again this year so feel free to stop by the house the weekend of Oct. 14-17 to see more of my work or to just say hi. Thanks to everyone who has supported me and all of the vendors at the market this year!

This week is the last scheduled Market of 2016.  THANK YOU to all of you, our loyal customers, for supporting both us and the Market, year after year. We would not be here without you.

Marr's Valley View Farms offers a wide variety of high quality, flavorful, Pork and Black Angus Beef products for your eating enjoyment.  We are fully stocked with great roasts ready for the slow cooker. Pair with some veggies and potatoes from our fellow Market vendors and you are all set for a comforting home cooked meal.
This week while supplies last - receive a Beef Soup Bone OR a package of Beef Wieners with every purchase as our thank you for your support.

Mummu's Makeovers aka Susan Marr
Hi All!!  I'm finally back at home after 10 days in northern MN spending time with my sister and her family.  I had a wonderful time, as usual!  Color was at peak up there so the scenery was fantastic and made for a very pleasant drive.  I do plan to be at Market this week, Sat. 15 and it will be my last visit for the year.  My craft shows are starting so I'll be on the road.  I will have a schedule of where I'll be and when for you to see on Sat.  One thing I do want to mention is I will be having my Open House the week of Dec. 5 - 9  so do mark you calendars now and come on over!  Bring friends, too!  My phone number is 623-2592 if you want to call ahead.  I want to take this time to thank all of my loyal customers all summer.  It was great to see everyone and get caught up!  And, as always, it was super to meet new people and show my doll clothes to them.  I look forward to seeing you all again next spring when Market starts again.  Have a great holiday season and the best in the new year.   Mummu

Shooting Star Farm
It’s hard to believe that Saturday will be the last Market of the season! It seems to have the first real frost this week as well. We’ve cleaned the remaining tomatoes off the vine, harvested the peppers, and protected a few items that might get damaged by the frost. The abnormally wet weather has made for a challenging fall season. We’ve had issues with crop loss due to a disease that affects cauliflower, rutabaga, turnip, and cabbage – the very vegetables that are usually in abundance right now. However, we’ll still have plenty of variety for Saturday.  Here’s the expected list: beets, radishes, celery root, leeks, napa cabbage, bok choy, broccoli heads and shoots, kale, salad mix, arugula, plenty of lettuce, red and yellow onions, a mix of bunched Asian greens, radicchio, frisee endive, carrots,  roma tomatoes, cherry tomatoes (hopefully), sweet and hot peppers, spinach (limited amount), a variety of herbs, and probably a few other things I’m forgetting. It should be a nice morning. See you then! Rink, Jenny, and Charlie
