What a season we’ve had, thank you for a great year!
The last market of the season is Nov. 18th, the Saturday before Thanksgiving, and there is plenty to experience & enjoy!
Pumpkin season is here and there is still an abundance of produce, herbs, and fruit. This time of the year you will find a wide selection of apple varieties in our growers’ stalls. While they are perfect for eating out of hand, we like to have a little bit of fun with them.
Apple Skewers: One of our favorite apple treats to make for holiday gatherings is apple skewers. They are a delightful dessert and making them couldn’t be simpler.
- Start by skewering large slices of apple that have been soaked in lemon water for 5 mi8nutes.
- Dry the skewers on a paper towel to remove excess water.
- Arrange them on a festive tray and serve them alongside several warm dipping sauces such as caramel or chocolate, and a variety of candy, nutty or crunchy toppings to dip them in.
Apple Nachos: Another of our favorite, easy-to-make apple desserts is Apple Nachos. Thinly sliced apples are arranged in a spiral formation on a platter, then drizzled with caramel sauce and melted white chocolate, then sprinkled with crunchy pretzel pieces and chopped toffee candy. Other crunchy options such as chopped nuts would work here as well.
Marketgoers are grateful for the hard work our vendors put into their small businesses, and our loyal customers are greatly appreciated as well.
We encourage marketgoers to continue that support even when we are closed in December and January by following your favorite vendors on social media and ordering from them online.
Contact information and web addresses for all of our vendors can be found on our website under the Vendors + Products tab. We will open for the 2024 season on February 3, 10am – 1:30pm.
