What's in Season
Root vegetables are another staple of autumn dishes. Savoie Organic Farm's varieties are pictured. Look for sweet potatoes, too, both white and orange types.
Fall Squash is here, ready to roast, sautee, puree and more. Butternut, spaghetti squash, acorn, pumpkins and more. See recipes below.
Did you know that fresh apple cider tastes different each week, based on which kinds of apples are being juiced?
Pear varieties are changing weekly, too, at Fruitwood Farms' stand.
Broccoli is back, it's a spring and fall crop. Duker T Will be selling cream of broccoli soup this week, too.
Hillacres Pride (dairy and meat) will now have lard from their Berkshire Heritage Breed pigs, regaining praise as a cooking fat of choice for chefs and foodies. Again this week, they are offering a very limited number of yogurts for sale at the booth on a first come basis.
Hillacres Pride "big blocks" of cheddars and colby cheeses will be $9.49/lb (save 50 cents a pound!) this Saturday, while they last. Blocks are vacuum sealed and will last months-stock up now.
Bossa nova-jazz favorite Trio Nova Duo plays the music this week.
