Mineral Point Market "Indoors" - October 30th

Hello MP Market goers!

What a wonderful turnout for the first Mineral Point Market "Indoors" of 2010! I have to say based on the wind this week I am VERY thankful that Market is now indoors!

You will find us again this Saturday, October 30th, indoors at 114 High Street, downtown Mineral Point. Located directly across the street from Library Park, 114 High Street is a perfect building for hosting an indoor market with its majestic glass front and spacious inside.

MUSIC at this week's Market!

It is "Trick or Treat" week-end and we are blessed with a real treat at this week's Market. Jen Logueflower, John Birner and Scott Steiber will serve up their renditions of mostly familiar tunes from decades past and undoubtedly a round of "The Pancake Song and Ode to a Fruit and Vegetable Person". We will have a few tables and chairs this week so pull up a chair, tap your feet and linger with a market treat.

Mike Manogue - aka "Mr. Tippy Top"
did not move indoors this year however our good friends Keith and Leslie of Driftless Appetite recently visited with him at his orchards. Check out their blog for a wonderful insight into Mike's world and some great photos of Mike and his fruit trees. His exuberant and energetic personality comes through even in pictures! http://www.driftlessappetite.com/

Week 25 - October 16, 2010

Hello MP Market goers!

The last outdoor Market of the season is upon us - where did the last 6 months go!?! REMINDER - THIS WEEK'S MARKET WILL BE HELD IN LIBRARY PARK - DOWNTOWN MINERAL POINT.

It's Fall Art Tour weekend - lots of activity all over town - and it sounds like the weather will continue to cooperate.

Congratulations to Cathy Kitto, winner of the October and final market basket of the 2010 season. Make sure to stop at Market this week Cathy and pick up your winnings.

The Mineral Point Chamber will be at the Market again this week to promote the Mineral Point High School FFA and Skills USA Local Gift Boxes and Fruit Sale which began October 7th and runs through October 28th. Your order will be delivered on Sunday, December 5th. This is a GREAT GIFT GIVING IDEA.

The local foods portion of this fundraiser is sponsored by the Mineral Point Chamber through the effort of Lois Federman and Mary Jean James, who coordinate it for the students. Both the High School groups and the Chamber benefit from these sales as do many local producers who provide the goods for the gift boxes. This project has won statewide awards over the years and has been a great example of how to collectively benefit from the sale of local products.

If you can't make it to market to order you can contact an FFA or SKILLS USA member to purchase or call Mr Robinson at the Mineral Point high school at 987.2321 ext. 380

Week 24 - October 9, 2010

Hello MP Market goers!

Okay - I, like many of you, am beside myself with how gorgeous the weather has been the last 2 weeks! This is incredible to say the least. The harvest is definitely ahead of normal and way ahead of last year when everything was so wet - some crops never did make it out of the fields. We can count our blessings this year for sure.

We have 2 outdoor markets left. Saturday is predicted to be almost like a summer day so make sure to shop the market before starting those fall outdoor chores. We will be taking registrations for the October Market Box Drawing - the last one of the season. Don't forget to register to win a box full of items donated by the Market vendors in appreciate of your continued support of our Market. Good luck!

The Mineral Point Chamber will be at the Market this week to promote the Mineral Point HIgh School FFA/Skills USA Local Gift Boxes and Fruit Sale which began October 7th and runs through October 28th. Your order will be delivered on Sunday, December 5th. This is a GREAT GIFT GIVING IDEA.

The local foods portion of this fundraiser is sponsored by the Mineral Point Chamber through the effort of Lois Federman and Mary Jean James, who coordinate it for the students. Both the High School groups and the Chamber benefit from these sales as do many local producers who provide the goods for the gift boxes. This project has won statewide awards over the years and has been a great example of how to collectively benefit from the sale of local products.

If you can't make it to market to order you can contact an FFA or SKILLS USA member to purchase or call Mr Robinson at the Mineral Point high school at 987.2321 ext. 380

Look for baby arugula, salad mix, gorgeous heads of lettuce, beets, carrots, radishes, salad turnips, leeks, shallots, garlic, bok choy, napa cabbage, Swiss chard, kale (3 kinds!), endive, and radicchio, dill, and possibly some cilantro.
