Enjoy a little bit of everything local, homemade and homegrown on Saturday, at the market. We will have a nice variety of pastured meats from Stuart Farm, Alpacas of Troy and Farrar Out Farms. You have the opportunity to meet the folks that raise the animals; chickens, beeves, hogs, lamb and alpaca. Vendors will also have pastured eggs, raw honey, local, seasonal produce (including figs), locally produced cheese, fruit preserves, as well as unique tea blends made from fair trade tea leaves, herb and spice blends, breads, plants for your yard and garden, handmade soap and handspun yarns.

This week I have included links to many of the producers blogs, website, Etsy or Facebook pages. Enjoy.

Larder and Cupboard: In addition to the Marcoot and Ludwig cheeses, they will be bringing Milton Prairie Breeze , Chili Pepper Cheddar and Flory’s Truckle.
Market Customers that post and engage with Ludwig Farmstead Cheese on social media (Instagram, FB, Twitter) could win a free piece of Ludwig Cheese to be picked up at the Larder and Cupboard, Wildwood Market tent.

Some of her tea blends are named after and support endangered animals (like sea turtles). She has created relationships with some of the tea leaf “farmers” in the countries of origin, cutting out the middle man with more of the profits going directly to the producer. Annette also created flavors around the seasons or for special occasions. Her new blend for the market this weekend is Mexican Wedding Cake.

 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.
We continue to have fresh, local, seasonal produce, pastured meats, eggs, local cheese, raw honey, cut flowers, salsa, pickles, breads, preserves and more. Local artisans will join us as well as local authors.
