Pick up some tomatillos to make delicious, tangy salsa verde. I’ll have jalapenos, cilantro, and white onions to complete the recipe. I should also have a reasonable supply of green beans again this week. Other items to consider cooking with include eggplant, zucchini, baby fennel, celery, bunched red beets, green bell and Italian frying peppers, shishito peppers, Italian bottle onions, kale, Swiss chard, amaranth greens, basil, dill, thyme, and parsley. For salads I’ll have cucumbers (going strong for a few more weeks), baby lettuce heads, a limited amount of salad mix, and hopefully some arugula.

Magic Light Photography
August is shaping up to be a very busy month for me so I will not be at the market this weekend.  My next market will most likely be August 31st.
When I'm not at the market my cards are available at the Mineral Point Collection located at 151 High Street. You can also view my work at www.magiclightphotography.com or on my Facebook Page. If you see anything of mine online that you would like a print of, please let me know! I'm also available for special photo projects and portrait sessions.  Contact me for more information. I hope to see you on Saturday.
Marr's Valley View Farms
It's BLT time - don't miss out on this seasonal treat - it won't be long and it will be gone for another year!  We're a bit biased of course, but the most important BLT ingredient has to be BACON from Marr's Valley View Farms!  We have our Applewood, Hickory, Maple, Pepper varieties to choose from.
Also select from a wide variety of steaks, brats, hot dogs and burgers for your grill.  We encourage you to pre-order or come to the Market early for best selection.  Need a large quantity or can't make it to Market Saturday morning?  Please call, 608-987-2097, and we will make other arrangements for your order.  
A reminder that we are offering pick-up of our Farm Connection Meat CSA at Market this year again - ask us on Saturday for details and how to join.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone Saturday morning under the WaterTower.  Thanks for your continued support and we look forward to servicing your needs with our full line of Pork and Black Angus Beef products. 
All of us at Marr's Valley View Farms
Mummu's Makeover
Hi All!  I am hoping we have nice weather this Sat. Aug. 17 as I would love to be back at Market!  I do miss seeing everyone when I miss a week.  I am busy gearing up for holiday craft shows so you will get a sneak peek at some of the new goodies!  I am doing "some" items for the boy dolls but not the amount that I have for the 18" girl dolls.  So do stop by and say "HI" and check out what's new!  Looking forward to seeing you under the water tower on Sat. Aug. 17!  Enjoy the rest of the week!   Mummu

Sitka Salmon
We will be back on August 24th with a variety of wild-caught Alaskan seafood.
Shooting Star Farm
Wet August weather sure has things looking green and lush this year (if muddy). I’ve had an amazing summer crop of cucumbers, zucchini and summer squash, and basil, but they are beginning to taper off just a bit. So enjoy during the next 2 -4 weeks because they’ll be gone before we know it! August crops such as peppers, eggplant, and tomatoes are finally coming in on my farm. It’s a great time to enjoy all these vegetables (along with sweet corn) pretty much every day of the week. This is what I hope to have on Saturday: green beans, eggplant, zucchini and summer squash (including pattypan), cucumbers, green Italian frying peppers, green bell peppers, jalapeno and poblano peppers, shishito peppers, tomatillos, a mixture of red, heirloom, sauce, and cherry tomatoes (still limited quantities), red beets, celery, cilantro, basil, parsley, dill, thyme, salad mix (limited), lettuce heads (limited), amaranth (callaloo), purple Italian bottle onions, white onions, a bit of broccoli, and possibly some arugula. See you Saturday!
Tippy Top Orchard
The Harrow Delight pears are ready to pick and Mike will be at the Mineral Point Market this Saturday with the first of his crop. Just a note about harvesting pears: They ripen from the inside out and must be picked underripe. Pears that feel soft on the tree will be overripe in the middle. Mike knows when to pick pears so they will ripen properly off the tree. When you purchase them at the farmers’ market, some may need a few extra days on the counter to fully ripen, but they are worth the wait. Harrow Delights are super sweet, juicy,  and delicious! More pear varieties and apples will be coming as we get closer to fall.
Usborne Books and More with Katie
Hi! I'm sponsoring a kids activity corner once a month for your kids to play and learn within your view at market. While at market you can browse my wide range of children’s books related to plants, animals, farming and cooking. These books are a great way to bond with your kids and get them involved in all of the wonderful things related to fresh food and farmers markets!
