Week 22 - September 29th


Hello MP Market Goers!

Wow, lots going on this weekend in MP!  The Cornish Festival is in town this weekend!  There is also Pub night at Pendarvis, the Crowdy Crawn at Pendarvis, and the Taste of Mineral Point (which happens right after market in Water Tower Park)!  Whew, between all these events and the Mineral Point Market we are going to have full bellies!
On top of it all, it looks like the weather is going to be fabulous for the market this Saturday!  We still have some great stuff coming to market so be sure to stop out.  However, for some  of us the season is winding down so be sure to read through the vendor list so you can know what you need to stock up on when you get to market.
Thanks for coming out each week and supporting your local vendors and farmers!  We all really love and cherish this market and its' customers.  Your smiles and your love for local products is so very much appreciated!

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.

Co-Manager
Mineral Point Market

Following is the list of who will be vending at this week's Market. Be sure to click on the vendors tab to learn more about our new vendors!


Bob's Bitchin' BBQ Sauce
Bob and Judy Page will not be at the market this week.  They have finished up for the season and are working on opening a new restaurant in Dodgeville.  Stay tuned for more information! Visit our website at http://www.bobsbitchinbbq.com/ or find us on Facebook!
Bures Berry Patch
BEWARE, Bures Berry Patch will be at market this week and not again until October 20th.  We are so sorry.  The farm is in full swing for pumpkin season and our weekends are getting quite busy.  Be sure to stop out this week to get your fall decorations and pumpkins!  Remember, if you can't make it to market you can always visit us at the Patch, we are open daily from 10am - 6pm.  On the weekends in October we offer FREE HAYRIDES and new this year we have a corn maze which will also be open Saturdays and Sundays in October.  Visit us at http://www.buresberrypatch.com/ to learn more or like us on Facebook www.facebook.com/buresberrypatch for the latest shovel on what's happening in the Patch! See you in the Patch!
Carey's Green House
My name is Delbert Carey and I was born and raised in Mineral Point.  I have many annuals that can be used in both container gardens and traditional growing spaces. Because of my time at Pendarvis, English garden favorites such as lilacs, hollyhocks, and hostas are also favorites of mine. I taught pre-school for eight years and learned just how much fun kids can have growing sunflowers and pumpkins. Finally I’ve always had a weakness for climbing vines such as morning glories and moon flowers.
My parents have enjoyed joining in on this little project and they helped me choose the name Carey’s Green House which is an inside joke. After forty-six years of living in the same white house, last summer my parents decided to paint the whole thing Green, and thus the bulk of my plants come from Carey’s green house. All of the plants we offer for sale are either annuals grown naturally from seeds or perennials that are either grown from seeds or grown from cuttings of plants that have grown in my parents gardens for the last 46 years.
I hope to see you all at the market!

P & M Gardens

Shooting Star Farm

We got frost on both Saturday and Sunday nights. The cucumbers, beans, and some minor crops in the lower fields got hit, but most everything else was just nipped or survived altogether – including peppers and tomatoes. The tomato crop is nearly over because the plants are spent and the cool nights mean few ripened tomatoes, but we will have some for the Saturday. We’ll also have some beautiful orange and red sweet peppers and zucchini (primarily from the hoophouse). The basil also survived because it’s in our protected hoophouse and we covered it. Still time to make a little pesto for the freezer! There are lots of other great items for this week: broccoli, red and French breakfast radishes, salad mix, red, green, and bibb lettuce, baby arugula, salad turnips, kohlrabi, kale, Swiss chard, napa (Chinese) cabbage, green cabbage, bok choy, fennel, radicchio, spinach, and possibly some carrots. See you Saturday! Rink, Jenny, and Charlie.
Turtle Hill Wilds
Turtle Hill Wilds will not be at market for the rest of the season.  We all wear many hats in our quest to stay afloat in today's world, and our work hats as land stewards will take us away from Mineral Point for the rest of the season.  Please, contact us at our e-mail or phone number if interested in honey, honey creams, and jams for yourself, friends, and family during the upcoming holiday season.  We would love to accomodate your requests. Best!

Week 21 - September 22nd


Hello MP Market Goers!

Congratulations POINT 5 band of Mineral Point!  I was driving home from the Twin Cities last Sunday evening and who do I get to hear on Public Radio?  Our very own Mineral Point Celebrities.  You guys did great!

This week it has really begun to feel like fall!  We even had frost down here in our valley,  burr.  On the plus side...we can see the pumpkins now!  Things are changing quickly and there are just a handful of markets left, that is right just 5 markets left.  Some of us are expecting more frost this weekend which may put an end to precious things like tomatoes, peppers, raspberries, and basil.  Be sure to stock up!  Remember the market is open rain or shine, cold or hot, windy or calm, we will be there with beautiful and delicious products for your home and belly.

Speaking of bellies, here is a great recipe for chicken salsa chili that I like to make on those cold fall days with veggies and chicken from the market.

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.

Hello MP Market Goers!


Congratulations Janet Pollock, winner of last week's market basket giveaway!  You are in for a beautiful and tasty treat this week.  Thanks so much for supporting the Mineral Point Market and all its vendors!
SIX markets left!!!  Woop, Woop, Woop!  That's right though our tables are full with the bounty from our farms and studios, the season is winding down.  Our last market is scheduled for Oct. 20th.  Fall is always such a fun time though because we can once again enjoy living in Wisconsin.  Not too hot, not too cold.  And boy is there a lot to be pulled out of the garden.  From apples to zucchini and everything in between, we've got it and then some.  So stock up everyone, market will be over before you know it and if you don't get it in your freezer now...well let's just say it will be in mine!  

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.

Matchbook Magnets
I will be back at the market this week with my magnets.  They are made using images from matchbooks my Dad collected during the golden age of matchbook advertising – the 1940s thru early 1960s.  I hear so many stories from market-goers who see a magnet that stirs a memory.  One of my favorites was from a lady who noticed a magnet for Effinger Beer which was brewed in Baraboo.  She told me her grandfather worked at the brewery, but not only that, he met his wife (and her grandmother) when he ran into her while driving the Effinger Beer delivery truck!  Email:  matchbookmagnets@yahoo.com  See you Saturday.  Cindy

It’s that time of year when summer crops overlap with fall crops. The warm weather has ripened a lot of new tomatoes this week, but I get the feeling they’ll be slowing down drastically with the very cool nights in the forecast. Take advantage while you can! Items for this week: Red tomatoes, paste tomatoes, heirlooms tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, gorgeous red and orange Italian sweet peppers, green and red bell peppers, Japanese eggplant, slicing cucumbers, lemon cucumbers, zucchini and summer squash, basil, red and green leaf lettuce, green bibb lettuce, salad mix, baby arugula, bok choy, kale, red and French breakfast radishes, bunched beets, baby leeks, fennel, onions, and garlic. See you Saturday! Rink, Jenny, and Charlie

Turtle Hill Wilds will be at market this Sat., with raw wildflower honey, honey creams, and jams and preserves.  The weather looks good for mushrooms, so we may have fresh as well as dried shitakes and burgundy wine caps.  Come check out our newly made jams and honey creams, including a spicy hot pepper honey cream, great for meat glazes.

Week 19 - Sept. 8th


Hello MP Market Goers!


Wow, just 7 markets left to this season of the Mineral Point Market.  Thanks so much everyone for coming out during the season and supporting your market vendors.  With just seven markets left, it is time to start thinking about stocking up your freezer for the winter but also stocking up on the great gifts the Mineral Point Market has to offer.  Christmas gifts, hostess gifts, you name it we've got it.  I for one have become a consumable gift giver.  I love giving special, local products for gifts and it seems people love trying something new as well.  You can get it all at the Mineral Point Market Saturday mornings!
This week is market basket giveaway week, be sure to sign up to win a basket full of goodies!

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.

Carey's Green House
My name is Delbert Carey and I was born and raised in Mineral Point.  I have many annuals that can be used in both container gardens and traditional growing spaces. Because of my time at Pendarvis, English garden favorites such as lilacs, hollyhocks, and hostas are also favorites of mine. I taught pre-school for eight years and learned just how much fun kids can have growing sunflowers and pumpkins. Finally I’ve always had a weakness for climbing vines such as morning glories and moon flowers.
My parents have enjoyed joining in on this little project and they helped me choose the name Carey’s Green House which is an inside joke. After forty-six years of living in the same white house, last summer my parents decided to paint the whole thing Green, and thus the bulk of my plants come from Carey’s green house. All of the plants we offer for sale are either annuals grown naturally from seeds or perennials that are either grown from seeds or grown from cuttings of plants that have grown in my parents gardens for the last 46 years.
I hope to see you all at the market!

Fabric Fun and Then Some
I started "Fabric Fun and Then Some" during this long hot summer.  As a retired teacher and farm wife, I had time to recreate many hobby items - fabric boxes, denim and fabric aprons, quilted table runners, and painted clay pots.  I really enjoyed seeing many friends and meeting others at last week's market and am looking forward to this week as well.  Stop by for a visit!
