Last day to order local!



Greetings local food lovers!

Last chance to order local and potatoes, beets, overwintered spinach, eggs & meats still abound!

Or try out some incredible products from Jubilee Family Farm. Ever glanced at the ingredients list of your average supermarket tortilla? It’s a short novel of indecipherable words (e.g. preservatives and chemicals).

Jubilee Family Farms tortillas are a simple mix of white-wheat organic flours. They will go well with any of their sauces and soups they make too.

Enhance Your Life with Eggs!



Greetings local food lovers!

The Market is Open!

Aside from having a chicken coop in your backyard, the delicious eggs on the market are the next best thing!

We’ve got turkey eggs, duck eggs, bantam eggs, chicken eggs and quail eggs from four different farms.

Don’t like your eggs scrambled or over easy? Use them to take your baking to the next level, whip the whites into homemade marshmallows or hard boil and chop to enrich potato or pasta salads.

Greetings local food lovers!

The Market is Open!

Even though Halloween is a couple of seasons out, we’ve got pumpkins on the market this week from Holy Terror Farm!

-Pumpkin swirl brownies
-Pumpkin soup…served in a pumpkin bowl!
-Pumpkin, sage & brown butter ravioli (tip: use wonton wrappers for speedier assembly)

BONUS! Collect, rinse and toast the pumpkin seeds for a healthy snack or salad topper!
