August 30th - Week 17

Hello MP Market Goers!

Where did the summer go?  Wow, it is Labor Day Weekend!  We know it's a busy weekend; fair, getting ready for school, backyard bbqs to attend or host.  But don't let that stop you from coming to the Mineral Point Market Saturday morning.  We've got a couple new vendors coming on the scene.  You may have noticed one last weekend, Tippy Top Orchard?  That's right, it's pear and apple season!  Plus new this week is Winndie Darrow making handmade scarves, potholders, and more!

Now that school is about to start once again and the temperatures are cooling it is time to get back in the routine of making dinner at home happen.  Things get so busy in the summer and it can certainly get too hot to want to cook.  Now is the time to start planning your dinners.  Real dinners with fresh veggies, fruits, and locally raised meats.  Can you tell that I'm excited?  Summer goes by so fast for me and dinners, well they often don't get the planning they need.  Back on track I go this week with Steak, Salad, and corn, tacos with fresh tomatoes and lettuce and edamame (the kids love popping these little beans out of their pods), brats with potatoes and more corn.  Those are just a few ideas from our menu this upcoming week.  Plus don't forget to pickup teacher gifts this weekend.  My kids always like to go to school on the first day with a special welcome gift for their new teacher.

Here is a partial list of items at this week's market:  Apples, Pears, Green Beans (last week for these), Potatoes, Cherry Tomatoes and slicing tomatoes, Broccoli, Swiss Chard, Sweet Corn, Onions, Mixed Greens, Beef, Pork, Chicken, Eggs, Cheese, Honey, Maple Syrup, Egg plant, Peppers, Edamame, Raspberries, Parsley, Basil, Dill, Artisan Breads and Baked Goods, Kale, Beets, Salad Dressing, Scallions, Watercolor art, Dilly Beans,  Pies, Fresh Cut flowers, Yard art, Head Lettuce, Herbs, Red Cabbage, Fennel, Cucumbers, Zucchini, Goat Milk Soap & Shampoo, Wildlife Prints and Cards, Scarves, Potholders, 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.

New this week: carrots! Finally we have a crop! The first one was riddled with weeds and became food for the soil. The second just took too long to grow. Crops such as summer squash, cucumbers, and green beans are still available, but definitely on the wane. Get them in the next week or two because we’re not sure how long they’ll be around.

This darn summer weather....Mummu has too much Upper Michigan in her blood yet to appreciate heat and humidity.  So I will not be at Market as I planned this Sat. Aug 23.  It would NOT be pretty to see me fold in the heat.  Then I will be gone to Michigan for a week so Sat. Sept. 6 is the next Market I plan to be at.  (Weather permitting, of course) That's waaaaayyyy too long to be away from everyone!    I will offer my "Back to School" sale then so be sure to pass the word and stop by to see the bargains!  I'm also hoping to have some of the M.Pt. Blue and White clothes ready. It will be a variety of items so I hope there will be something for everyone.  I will be at home in Cobb until Thursday, Aug.28 so if you do need me, please call at 623-2592 and we will try to work out a shopping time for you before I leave.  Have a great 2 weeks, everyone!!  Try to stay cool and don't forget to check on the elderly and to be kind to your pets.  Mummu (this is Finnish for "Grandma")

Mummu's Makeovers aka Susan Marr
Another beautiful week is upon us!  It does sound like we may actually get some much needed rain by the week-end so I am planning to stay home and sew.  I have so many new fabrics and "make-over items" , etc. to get at but this darn "day job" is really slowing me down!!  My decision to retire is getting more and more difficult as the "Big 65" is getting dangerously closer.  So, while I wait and debate, I will keep the sewing machine going as much as I can.  The dolls DO need clothes, after all!  If you find that you do need a gift before my next Market day (Aug. 23), call me at 623-2592 and we can certainly take care of it at my house in Cobb.  Check out the city-wide garage sales while you're in town for Market this Sat!  Lots of treasures to be found!  I'll see you on Sat. Aug. 23 at Market! Mummu (this is Finnish for "Grandma")

Shooting Star Farm
The beautiful Saturday weather continues! We had a gorgeous day last week, and although we may get some much-needed rain this weekend, the temperatures look great again.  Our produce selection for this week will be much like last week. We’ll have green beans, cherry tomatoes, red tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, zucchini and summer squash (lots!), cucumbers (lots!), a few types of onions, beets (red and colorful), salad mix, lettuce heads, baby arugula, kale, Swiss chard, eggplant, Italian frying peppers (green), bell peppers, red and yellow sweet peppers, fennel, celery, parsley, basil, and possibly cilantro, dill, and broccoli shoots. For those of you wondering, Rink completed the 250K ride in the Dairy land Dare last weekend. That’s over 155 miles. Amazing! See you all Saturday, Rink, Jenny, and Charlie

Look for sungold, red grape, and mixed pints of striped yellow, pink, and purple cherry tomatoes. Other items on our table this week will include green beans, zucchini and pattypan squash, cucumbers, eggplant, a few sweet peppers, onions, spinach, salad mix, baby arugula, Swiss chard, kale, beets, fennel, basil, parsley, dill, and cilantro. Rink will be riding in the Dairyland Dare this weekend, so be sure to cheer him on if you happen to be near High Street around 10:00am. See you Saturday! Rink, Jenny, and Charlie
