Week 22 - October 1st

Hello MP Market goers!

Only 3 weeks left of the Mineral Point Market in Watertower Park! Just a reminder, due to the construction in Library Park we will NOT be having our final market of the season in Library Park. Instead, it will be in Watertower Park as it is every week.

Fall in Wisconsin must be here. When I began writing this letter it was cool, rainy, and windy. Now it is sunny and beautiful, the weather in Wisconsin sure changes quickly. Hopefully, the leaves will stick it out through all this wind because they are getting so beautiful! With just a few short weeks left of the Mineral Point Market it is really time to stock up and get ready to hunker down. Many of our artist vendors have their biggest selection now because they are ramping up for the holiday season, so that gives you endless choices. On the farmer end of the market we are gathering all we can to extend what is left of summer and enjoy the fall fruits. There will be plenty to choose from this weekend. So make your grocery and gift lists; come on out to market and savor the colors and flavors of fall!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! 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.

Week 21 - September 24th

Hello MP Market goers!

Only 4 weeks left of the Mineral Point Market in Watertower Park! Just a reminder, due to the construction in Library Park we will NOT be having our final market of the season in Library Park. Instead, it will be in Watertower Park as it is every week.

Things are progressing on most of our farms to the fall theme. It is a beautiful time of year! Lots of colors, it is cooler and easier to work in, plus there is less daylight which means we can not work as long! Love it! Come check out all the colors and flavors of fall at market this week. There will be pumpkins, peppers, tomotoes, radishes, broccoli, spinach, lettuce, yellow raspberries, bok choy, cabbage, squash, ingredients for the perfect pot roasts with onions and potatoes plus pork and chicken and much more I am sure. Personally, I think it is time for soup, did I say how much I love fall? At market we also have a wide selection of wonderful gifts for you or your friends and family! There is beautiful jewelry from DDP Beads, delicious candies from Cocomand, wonderful paintings from Chesnut Hill Studio. Consumable item also make great gifts, such as goat milk soap from Lacey's Lathers (did you know Clare is engaged? Congrats!) or items like honey, maple syrup, salsa, dilly beans, bbq sauce. We've got you covered, just 4 short weeks left though so it is time to stock up, plan ahead, and come out to market.

In addition to market, there is lots going on this weekend in Mineral Point. For those that want to learn something; The Fibre Arts Faire is happening at Shake Rag Alley! Come learn how to do just about anything related to fibre, from shearing to making beautiful scarfs. To find out more visit: http://www.my-distraction.com/ . For those that want to kick back and enjoy the evening there are two musical options available. Mineral Point's very own Point Five (Paul Biere, Aaron Dunn, Monica Dunn, Andy Harch, and Carole Spelic') will be celebrating the release of their first CD at the Midway Bar and Grill Saturday night from 7-8:30. Visit http://www.pointfiveband.com for more info. I did say there were two options...Charlie Brooks will also be playing Saturday night at 8pm at the Opera House for tickets or more info visit http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/192318. Options, usually a good thing, probably not so much in this case.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! 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.

Shooting Star Farm
It’s hard to believe October is right around the corner! We’re lamenting the (almost) end to summer crops, but there are some beautiful fall crops to take their place. Lots of cooking greens and such: green cabbage, two types of kale, Swiss chard (rainbow and red), napa cabbage, bok choy, broccoli, and spinach (great for cooking or salads). For salads we’ll have gorgeous large heads of lettuce, lots of salad mix, some radicchio chicory, and baby arugula. The beets are delicious this fall, and radishes are juicy, crisp, and a bit spicy from some recent hot weather (we’ll have red ones as well as French breakfast). Other miscellaneous items include red and heirloom tomatoes (limited supply), green and red peppers, parsley, sage, leeks, lots of onions, and garlic. See you Saturday! Rink, Jenny, and Charlie.

Week 20 - September 17th

Hello MP Market goers!

Only 5 weeks left of the Mineral Point Market in Watertower Park! Please congratulate Sandy Scott for winning the market basket giveaway last week! She will pick up a beautiful basket full of market bounty this week, don't forget to register next month for the last drawing of the season.

Alright, I must have jinxed us with my comment last week about living in Wisconsin. I guess the saying here goes, "If you don't like the weather in Wisconsin, wait just a bit and it will change". Well it certainly took a turn, burr! With weather like this it may be a bit hard to predict what will be arriving at market this week. For most of the farmers at market we will be battling frost for the second time tonight. Sweet corn, raspberries, pears, apples, tomatoes, squash; they are all at risk and for that reason we are frantically harvesting and blanketing to keep everything safe for the warm weeks to come (because you know warm weather will be back, remember this is Wisconsin). So let's just call it mystery week at market!

In addition to market this week Boy Girl Boy Girl returns to the Mineral Point Opera House on Saturday evening with Massive Fireball Reported Over Midwestern Sky. Tickets are available online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/191316.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! 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.

Bures Berry Patch
Things are slowing down at the Patch. Some cool nights have hastened our harvests and we are hoping that our delicious yellow raspberries and sweet corn make it through the frost. At this stage we are not sure if we will be at market this week. It all depends on the weather and what is happening with the raspberries and corn. If they make it we will be bringing raspberries, sweet corn, potatoes, garlic, and eggs. Didn't know we were raising chickens? We are...we have 72 laying hens most of which just began laying in the last month or so! Bures Berry Patch will also be bringing our delicious honey, pure maple syrup, and dilly beans!

Shooting Star Farm
Tomato season is definitely on the downswing here. Some cool nights have slowed ripening, and a pretty nasty storm a few weeks ago did some damage to the plants that has spread throughout the patch. Nonetheless, we will have a reasonable selection this week and hopefully next. On the bright side, fall crops are coming in. Lots of cabbage, kohlrabi, red radishes and spinach will be available. Bok choy, kale, and Swiss chard will round out the selection of cooking greens. Heads of lettuce are big and beautiful: green and red bibb, red leaf, and red oak leaf. We’ll have plenty of salad mix and baby arugula. Other items include bunched beets, leeks, lots of onions, terrific garlic, red peppers, herbs, and a bit of eggplant. Looks to be a beautiful Saturday. See you then! Rink, Jenny, and Charlie

Week 19 - September 10th

Hello MP Market goers!

Well after last Saturday's weather, anything should be better,and it sounds like this Saturday will be a gorgeous day. This weather has been so fantastic! So much is getting done on the farm, it is wonderful! However, just because it is nice out now does not mean it will stay nice forever. We do live in Wisconsin after all. For this reason, if you haven't started stocking your freezer and cellar now is the time. This week at market there will be lots of tomatoes, sweet corn, onions, peppers, even some winter squash. There will also be plenty of beef, pork, and chicken. The pancake lady will be back this week so be sure to stock up on flour and bread mixes. Also, don't forget about the artists that grace our market each week with beautiful items that make great gifts (I thought I would never say this in September but "Christmas is coming")!

If you are wondering what else is happening in town this weekend, there is a concert by Richard Weigel at Orchard Lawn Friday night from 5:30-7:30, should be a fun time. Or on Sunday there is a book signing at Foundry Book for Aldo Leopold's Shack, Nina's Story from 2-4 pm.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! 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.

Lonesome Stone Milling
The 2011 grain harvest is coming in plentiful and tasty. News from the Lonesome Stone Mill in Lone Rock is that the Mary Ellen Carter a.k.a. Super Clipper 29 D is noisy and busy cleaning the July harvest. Whole Wheat Bread Flour, using 2011 Hard Red Winter Wheat from Dave Dolan's rural Dodgeville farm bakes up a fine hearty loaf. And, our Whole Wheat Pastry Flour , using 2011 Soft Red Winter Wheat from Tom Martin's Wauzeka farm, is especially good for crumbly applications i.e. cookies, cakes and pie crust.
New from the mill: Lonesome Stone Cornbread Mix, organically grown by Farmer Dave Dolan, blended with our Taliesen Whole Wheat Flour. Add some market eggs, a stick of butter and milk and you're good to go.
The 30" Meadows Grist Mill continues to work through the 2010 Taliesen Wheat. Step up to the griddle for our famous Lonesome Stone Pancake Mix. Put a warm flapper in your hand as the autumn chill comes to market Saturday morning. And, ask for a song from the pancake lady.

Marr's Valley View Farms
We hear things were a bit rough weather wise for last week's Market. If we had to be gone for a family wedding I guess it was the right time to do so. Armed with our full product offering, we will be back at Market this week. We are counting down the weeks now to the final Mineral Point Market of 2011. 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 - Mike - Lois - Doral

Magic Light Photography
I will be at market this week featuring a large selection of matted nature and wildlife prints, ready for framing in many different sizes. I will also have a large selection of hand made greeting cards featuring many of my favorite images. All of my cards are blank inside and are great for any occasion. I have a selection of bookmarks designed using many of my photos and I also have a limited number of 2011 calendars. If you have any questions about photography, please stop by and ask. You can also view my work at http://www.magiclightphotography.com/. Thanks, Mike.

Mission Abolition
Mission Abolition will be here this week. We create schlep bags made from donated fabrics, which brings unique color and pattern designs to each bag. All proceeds from the sales of these bags are donated to the Not For Sale organization, which works to end human trafficking and modern-day slavery. Mission Abolition believes in raising awareness of the needs of people involved in human trafficking and modern-day slavery with a personal touch sewn into each bag. Look for them in weeks to come.

Nana’s Salsa Fresca
Our salsa recipes have been in our family for generations, they are a table favorite for both family and friends. We make a red salsa with fresh jalapenos, a green salsa with fresh Serrano peppers and on occasion we will make a corn salsa, as well as a fresh fruit salsa. The flavors are fresh and vibrant. One taste and you can’t stop. Rob & Natalie Hanke

P & M Gardens
P & M Gardens, LLC will not be at market this week.

Rockwell Ridge Bakery
I will not be here this week. Be back in a few weeks with my homemade baked goods including items like brownies, crumb cake and scones, prepared salads and sides, jams, fruit sauces and fresh apple cider in the fall. All of the products are based on things I love and items grown on our farm, Rockwell Ridge. We are located just a couple miles outside of Dodgeville and have fruit trees, berries and vegetables that are all grown without pesticides or herbicides. I make everything I sell with joy and passion and look forward to sharing it with you.

Shooting Star Farm
It’s hard to believe September is here and we’ll soon be switching from summer crops to fall. For now, the weather still definitely says “summer”, but we do hope to have our first fall crop of radishes (red ones and possibly French breakfast if the heat doesn’t do them in). We’ll have some nice heads of lettuce, frisee endive, baby arugula, and lots of salad mix to make delicious salads. Cooking greens will include kale, Swiss chard, bok choy, napa cabbage, and you can always cook those beet greens from your beets! We still have lots of beautiful red tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, colorful heirloom tomatoes, and paste tomatoes. Other summer items include eggplant, sweet red peppers, green peppers, sweet white onions, Italian bottle onions, and lemon cucumbers (super crispy and juicy - they just look somewhat like a lemon). For herbs we should have a bit of basil (almost done), sage, parsley. See you Saturday! Rink, Jenny, and Charlie

Supreme Seafood
I have an assortment of seafood shrimp, cod, crab legs, lobster, scallops to alligator, frog legs, grouper and so much more most everything is coming directly from the boats in Alaska and Canada. I will also have an assortment of peppers, cherry tomatoes, beef steak tomatoes and English cucumbers all grown locally in Potosi.

Tippy Top Orchard
Delicious homegrown pears and apples are on the menu at Tippy Top!
