November marks the end of the Fall market: Time to stock up for the winter
Fall is in full swing at the Market, and the staff has been looking forward to the chillier weather and slower pace of the season. You can often find Market staff trading their favorite baking and soup/stew recipes with each other and customers that celebrate the satiating comfort that fall and winter dishes bring.
November also marks the end of the Fall Market, with the last market being November 19th (the Saturday before Thanksgiving). The Market resumes operations in February, so you will want to stock up on produce like apples, pears, winter squash, and potatoes before the break. Not to mention it’s a great time to get local artisan food for the gift-giving season. For the foodie in your life, pick up Golden Drops for turmeric paste that can be used for anything from golden milk lattes to cookies, The Mushroomery for adaptogen-rich dried mushroom spice blends and tinctures, Foglia for handmade ravioli and other pasta, Suzanne’s Chocolate for truly exceptional chocolates, Alchemist Jam for local small batch jam, among others. If there’s anything that you can’t live without each week, now is the time to pick it up before the break. Thank you for supporting a local food economy in 2022!
