If you are in need of a large quantity please place your order in advance and we will have it all ready for you to pick up at the Market. When you dine on Marr's Valley View Farms meats, rest assured you are eating naturally lean meats - fresh beef and pork products direct from a local farm to you. The only stop in-between is a State or USDA inspected processing facility. No gassing or carbon monoxide irradiation necessary. If you need a large quantity - send an e-mail to federman@charter.net or call 608-574-2899 by Friday evening and we will have your order ready for pick-up at the market. See you Saturday!

Shooting Star Farm

Green beans, summer squash, and tomatoes. Must be summer! The tomatoes are just starting and will be a bit limited, but we will have a nice selection of big and small heirloom tomatoes in a rainbow of colors, as well as good old red slicing tomatoes. In addition, we should have some pints of cherry tomatoes: sweet red, tangy sungold, and juicy, flavorful black (the color is actually more of a purple). The cherry tomatoes are limited, but look for lots and lots in weeks to come. Other summer items include green basil, lemon basil, Italian bottle onions (red, elongated onions with great flavor), sweet onions, scallions, cucumbers (3 kinds), and few eggplant and peppers. We will have also have Swiss chard, beets, fennel, and heads of lettuce. Instead of salad mix this week we may have washed baby arugula and “spicy mix”. The baby lettuces for the mix are a bit too small to harvest. Hope to see you Saturday! Rink, Jenny, and Charlie

Liz Wyman and Molly Parker are a mother daughter team bringing a wide variety of products to the Mineral Point Market. We will continue to have Beefsteak tomatoes and Cherry tomatoes at the market in June. Along with our cucumbers, the tomatoes are all homegrown by us in our greenhouses in Potosi.

The scallops, cod, crab and salmon are from Alaska. The lobster and reef shark are from the Caribbean. The shrimp is from the Gulf. The perch, bluegill and walleye are from Canada. Most all other are farm raised in Louisiana and Florida. We will be running a different special each week.

Shooting Star Farm

Hurray for green beans! They’re finally ready. We have two varieties that are supposed to mature at different times, but they both came on at once. We just started picking them and should have a good supply for Saturday. Another new item will be eggplant – not a lot, but we are getting a few of the earlier, ichiban (Japanese) variety. We hope to have a few peppers as well. Other summer items include green and gold zucchini and patty pan squash, cucumbers (more this week), basil, mini onions, and fresh, uncured garlic (use just like regular garlic, but store in the refrigerator). We’ll continue to have bunched beets, Swiss chard, kale, lettuce, and scallions. Salad mix will be a bit short again this week. We’ve really struggled with planting it each week due to the wet, humid conditions. It’s just not good to till the soil while it’s wet and it rarely seems to dry out this summer. But we will have some salad. See you all Saturday! Rink, Jenny, & Charlie.

Week 11 - July 10, 2010

Hello MP Market goers!

It's July Beef Month! Many of you may have attended the Iowa County Cattlemen's Steak Feed near Barneveld Thursday evening. I hear it was a record turnout.

July Market Basket Drawing registration this week! Make sure to register when you come to market for a chance to win a broad selection of products donated by the Mineral Point Market vendors in appreciation of the support you, our customers, give the market. No purchase necessary to win.

Following is the complete list of who will be vending at this week's market - hope to see you there!

Alpacas of Prairie Station
Shannon and her daughter Sarah and her mother Barbe will be out at the Market demonstrating some of the many uses of alpaca fiber. We will have our CD spindles available for those who want a lesson in spinning, as well as tools for needle felting, a great summertime craft. As usual, we will have a variety of our yarns, rovings and gifts available, as well as Shannon's recently published children's book, "How Alpacas Came to Man."

Bures Berry Patch
Bures Berry Patch will be at market this week and we hope to be bringing delicious RED RASPBERRIES, more baby red and FINGERLING potatoes, and pure maple syrup! Sometime around late July we expect to have sweet corn perfect for the summer cookout. Fall raspberries will also come out around this time which make this crop doubly-good since we can offer them for an extended period of time. In October, we finish our season at the patch with a fantastic selection of pumpkins of all different shapes and colors as well as gourds, squash, and Indian corn. If you would like to learn more about Bures Berry Patch please introduce yourself to Ed and Kathy at the market, or feel free to give us a call at 608-924-1404, or visit our website at www.buresberrypatch.com.

I am returning to Market with cards, prints, trivets, tiles, t-shirts and market bags featuring fruits, veggies, flowers and an occasional critter. Stop by and check out my new designs.

DDB Beads
Dianne will return to market the end of July - come back then to purchase your jewelry from my broad selection of pieces.
Dazzling designs catch the bright rays of the sun on our brilliant Saturday mornings at the Market. Let the twinkling designs capture your attention and lure you to take a closer look at the table top laden with bracelets, earrings and necklaces. Are you in need of a unique gift for that special someone? Ask about the custom name bracelets that can include names of children, school mascots, favorite sports team, pets, etc. These make a wonderful gift for Mom! Have a safe and happy 4th of July!

Shooting Star Farm

Hurray for green beans! They’re finally ready. We have two varieties that are supposed to mature at different times, but they both came on at once. We just started picking them and should have a good supply for Saturday. Another new item will be eggplant – not a lot, but we are getting a few of the earlier, ichiban (Japanese) variety. We hope to have a few peppers as well. Other summer items include green and gold zucchini and patty pan squash, cucumbers (more this week), basil, mini onions, and fresh, uncured garlic (use just like regular garlic, but store in the refrigerator). We’ll continue to have bunched beets, Swiss chard, kale, lettuce, and scallions. Salad mix will be a bit short again this week. We’ve really struggled with planting it each week due to the wet, humid conditions. It’s just not good to till the soil while it’s wet and it rarely seems to dry out this summer. But we will have some salad. See you all Saturday! Rink, Jenny, & Charlie.

Wyman Produce and Supreme Seafood

Liz Wyman and Molly Parker are a mother daughter team bringing a wide variety of products to the Mineral Point Market. We will continue to have Beefsteak tomatoes and Cherry tomatoes at the market in June. Along with our cucumbers, the tomatoes are all homegrown by us in our greenhouses in Potosi. Through the summer we will have seafood from Supreme Seafood including shrimp, talapia, salmon, cod, frog legs, lobster, crab legs, scallops and many more. The scallops, cod, crab and salmon are from Alaska. The lobster and reef shark are from the Caribbean. The shrimp is from the Gulf. The perch, bluegill and walleye are from Canada. Most all other are farm raised in Louisiana and Florida. We will be running a different special each week.


New vendors are always welcome although if we have a limited amount of spaces for each product category so some may be placed on a waiting list until a spot becomes available. If you know anyone that might enjoy selling at the market or perhaps you yourself would, please contact Jenny Bonde at starfarm@mhtc.net or call 608-967-2319, or myself, Lois Federman, at federman@charter.net or call 608-987-2097.
