The harvests of fall have begun at the Midtown Farmers Market! You may have noticed some signature fall items appearing at the Market in recent weeks such as apples, pumpkins and winter squash which means its official: fall is here. Be sure to stock up on fresh, local veggies for canning and pickling before the leaves fall and snow hits the ground!
2013 has proven to be a great season for the Market and we would like to thank all of our customers, volunteers and our vendors for making the Market happen. We couldn’t do it without all of your hard work, dedication and support, so thanks to everyone who has made the Market a continued success! Be sure to come out and enjoy what is left of the season this October.
Here’s what you can expect to find at the Market this month: apples, pumpkins, tomatoes, sweet corn, broccoli, green beans, kohlrabi, carrots, turnips, parsnips, beets, cabbage, brussel sprouts, kale, onions, leeks, potatoes, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, herbs, pasture raised beef and pork, free-range chicken and eggs, lamb, cheese, yogurt, butter, honey, jams and jellies, pickled veggies, artisan breads, boiled peanuts and fermented products. You will also find plenty of delicious prepared foods to enjoy for breakfast and lunch while taking in local, live music, as well as various arts and crafts produced by local artisans.
We will also be rounding out the season with a number of activities including the following:
- October 5th – Story Time with the East Lake Library and Midtown Flavors with Lisa McDonald.
- October 12th – Second Saturday Family Activity with Martha Zemur.
