 Vendors are still bringing beautiful tomatoes and last of the season sweet corn. This is the time of year that I really enjoy and appreciate tomatoes, corn and other summer produce as I know the season may soon be coming to a close. After all of the tomatoes are done and gone, we don’t purchase fresh tomatoes from the store; we only use the ones we have preserved. Our meal preparation changes with the season.
This week  we enjoyed a spaghetti squash Puttnesca dish and we used fresh tomatoes as well as a large spaghetti squash. The best of two seasons!  The dish was quite delicious and we commented on how different it might taste if we make it again with our preserved tomatoes instead of the fresh ones. We agreed that this dish could be equally as good with the home canned as the fresh. Different, but still delicious. We have made stuffed peppers and sealed them for the freezer as well. Our veggie soup is in quart jars, jams and preserves are made, corn and beans have been pressure canned in pint jars. Next up will probably be apple butter. I usually make enough apple butter to last us through a couple of seasons; we don’t make it every year. I have some large bags of frozen Concord grape pulp that I will soon make into jelly. It will be a tasty winter for us.

The market vendor list gets smaller, but the variety and quality of the vendors does not diminish. Please continue to come and support the market vendors for the next few weeks as the market season draws to a close.

It’s a long weekend. A holiday weekend and also the transition of the local, seasonal, summer produce into the early fall and cooler weather produce. Our vendor list is also transitioning through the end of the season.

This week enjoy fresh, locally grown figs from Ivan’s Fig Farm. Ivan produces about 16 different fig varieties and usually has at least 6 of those varieties at a market each week. Ivan has been a vendor at the Tower Grove and Schlafly Farmers Market for quite a few years and will joining us this weekend.

Locally produced artisan cheeses, fruit crisps, housemade butter, boiled cider and housemade preserves will be at the Larder and Cupboard tent. Larder and Cupboard is a locally owned purveyor of unique, artisan and housemade food items, cheeses, cookbooks and locally branded food items. Cindy seeks out the best local, seasonal produce to create her in house preserves throughout the season.

One Eye Blind Woodworks is back this week. Dave uses a variety of unique local woods from “downed” trees to make various sizes of spoons and spatulas. His wife Jane makes bags and purses from upcycled feed bags.

Have you visited the Lavish tent? Jacque has created really unique (and fun) bath, body and linen sprays, bath bombs and beard oils. Do you want to feel like you are at the beach? Or laying in a bed of summer lilies? Jacque will take you there! Lavish yourself.
