October 13th - Week 24

Hello MP Market Goers!

There's just TWO markets left! The season has flown by and the market is winding down. We've had some fabulous vendors this season both new and old. Vendors like Divisions Cut Flower Farm and Wayne's Woodworking and Engraving. Both are new this season and have gorgeous products. If you haven't had a chance to visit their stall please come up to market this Saturday to check it out before it's too late.

  
It's also been wonderful to have vendors like Shooting Star Farm and Marr's Valley View Farm who have been with the market from the beginning selling fabulous products that show the heart of the Mineral Point Market.
But the market would not continue to thrive if not for you our customer. We so appreciate you! It's your desire to shop and eat local that make our market what it is. Thanks so much for supporting us as we continue to provide you with wonderful locally produced food and art.

Here is a partial list of items at this week's market: 
Bread, Scones, Muffins, Cookies, Bars, Cupcakes, Brownies, Beef, Pork, Chicken, Cheese, Apples, Pears, Squash, Leeks, Onions, Shallots, Scallions, Broccoli, Cabbage, Kohlrabi, Radishes, Celery Root, Celery, Peppers, Eggplant, Cucumbers, Cilantro, Dill, Thyme, Oregano, Swiss Chard, Kale, Lettuce, Salad Mix, Carrots, Beets, Massage Chair, Fresh Cut Flowers and Bulbs, Specialty Wood Products, Wool Scarves, and much more. Come and check it all out!

We look forward to seeing you this Saturday morning in Water Tower Park, Business Hwy 151 at Madison Street, Mineral Point! 8:30 to 11:00 a.m.

Hello everyone! 2 markets left...
I'm sad to say it, think it, type it! Let's make the best of it. This week we will have our usual selection of treats, and with the end of season coming, don't forget to add a few to the freezer to enjoy later. I try to make items that keep well; and I invite you to place an order if you like. The only thing I ask is to leave me a 2 day notice. This week with the weather so wet, I'll be in the kitchen all day Friday, so zap me a msg anytime! Come on out and see what we all have to offer! Hope to see you Saturday!

Looks like frost is truly on the way. I’ve been scrambling to get some frost sensitive crops out of the field in between the rain drops. Saturday’s market should be brisk, but sunny for a change, so come on out and stock up on butternut squash. I’ll have plenty! Also delicata an honeynut squash. The table will have a splattering of lots of other items, some in good quantity and others on their way out. Here’s what I’m hoping for: leeks, yellow and red onions, shallots, scallions, broccoli (mostly smaller side-shoots), Romanesco broccoli, napa cabbage, regular and Kossack (large) kohlrabi, winter radishes, red and French breakfast radishes, celery root, celery, a mixture of small and large sweet peppers in all stages of color, possibly some eggplant, cucumbers, cilantro, dill, thyme, oregano, Swiss chard, kale (2 types), baby lettuce heads, salad mix (limited), orange and rainbow-colored carrots, and possibly beets. See you Saturday!

Shooting Star Farm
Fall is definitely in the air. So is moisture. We got another 4 ½ inches of rain this last week, most of it falling Saturday and Sunday. I’m amazed there’s no standing water anywhere in the fields, but those carrots are hardly recognizable when they come out of the ground. Not a spec of orange shows under all the muck. But they do taste good. So I’ll have carrots! And lots of other items except for tomatoes. They are basically done for the season. No frost last weekend, but the humidity has done them in. Here’s my hoped-for weekend list: Salad mix, mixed baby lettuce heads, spinach, red and French breakfast radishes, winter radishes, carrots, beets, napa cabbage, cucumbers, red and orange sweet peppers, delicata squash, butternut squash, honeynut squash, leeks, yellow, red, and bottle onions, shallots, cilantro, dill, oregano, thyme, kohlrabi, celery, celeriac, and small heads of bok choy. No arugula this week. See you Saturday - rain or shine!
Sweet Earth Garden and Vintage China
I will unable to be at the market this week as my brother is getting married this weekend in Appleton. Hope to see you next week!
Tippy Top Orchards
Mike is back at market this fall with pears and apples!
