October 15th - Final Market

Hello MP Market Goers!

Our final market is here! It's been such a fabulous season; we had plenty of heat and lots of rain to go along with it! Usually we have one or the other. It was a great reprieve to have both this season.
We want to thank you for supporting our wonderful small town market each week. We so appreciate this community and its support of our vendors and their products.


 

When shopping market Saturday be sure to keep in mind your needs throughout the upcoming holiday season. Whether it be baking for company or gifts for teachers and hostesses. The market is full of great consumable products with long shelf lives. Why not give gifts this season that warm the home, heart, and belly of those close to you.

Here is a partial list of items at this week's market: Beef, Pork, Chicken, Eggs, Flour, Pumpkins, Squash, Gourds, Indian Corn, Frozen Sweet Corn, Frozen Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, Beets, Radishes, Celery Root, Leeks, Napa Cabbage, Bok Choy, Broccoli, Kale, Salad Mix, Arugula, Lettuce, Onions, Asian Greens, Radicchio, Frisee Endive, Carrots,  Tomatoes (hopefully), Peppers, Spinach, Herbs, Watercolor gifts, Dilly Beans, Honey, Maple Syrup, Goat Milk Soap, Coffee, Salsa, Jam, BBQ Sauce, 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.

It is with a heavy heart that I would like to announce that Lacey’s Lathers will be suspending all sales at the end of 2016. Due to a combination of events:  a recent promising job, a growing family and some extended family illness I have decided I will be taking a break from the soap and lotion business for the near future.
I would like to thank all my customers for their past and present purchases and support!!!  I could not have asked for a better town then Mineral Point, and community then southwest Wisconsin to grow and run a business! The people I have met and experiences I have been through have been amazing to say the least!!!
For those of you wondering if you can still stock up on your favorite products, you can! We still have a great selection of soaps available and we will be using up our remaining solid lotion bar ingredients in the coming weeks. Orders will be filled on a first come first serve basis. We will finish our year at the Mineral Point Market, Fennimore, Argyle, and Lancaster Craft Fairs. Soaps can last up to 5 years when stored in normal temperatures and lotion bars have a shelf life of 2 years if kept under 70 degrees.

Shooting Star Farm
It’s hard to believe that Saturday will be the last Market of the season! It seems to have the first real frost this week as well. We’ve cleaned the remaining tomatoes off the vine, harvested the peppers, and protected a few items that might get damaged by the frost. The abnormally wet weather has made for a challenging fall season. We’ve had issues with crop loss due to a disease that affects cauliflower, rutabaga, turnip, and cabbage – the very vegetables that are usually in abundance right now. However, we’ll still have plenty of variety for Saturday.  Here’s the expected list: beets, radishes, celery root, leeks, napa cabbage, bok choy, broccoli heads and shoots, kale, salad mix, arugula, plenty of lettuce, red and yellow onions, a mix of bunched Asian greens, radicchio, frisee endive, carrots,  roma tomatoes, cherry tomatoes (hopefully), sweet and hot peppers, spinach (limited amount), a variety of herbs, and probably a few other things I’m forgetting. It should be a nice morning. See you then! Rink, Jenny, and Charlie
