Fresh Item of the Week
Tuesday Market, September 27, 2011 | 9 am - 1 pm
We've been getting sneak peeks these past few weeks, but Autumn is now officially here. Recent markets have seen the much anticipated return of greens. So far we've spotted mustard greens from the Monica's, bok choi from Indian Springs and kale from Jim Core. We're also starting to see a few winter squash, like acorn and buttercup, here and there. Come out to the Tuesday market and see what signs of Autumn you can spot.
Thursday Market, September 29, 2011 | 3 pm - 7 pm
Jesse Gaudet of Plant Diversity is thinking forward to your fall vegetable garden. In addition to the succulents and interesting native plants he normally brings to our Thursday market, Jesse will have baby cilantro, cabbage and kohl rabi plants this week. Stop by his table and ask for advice on your fall planting schedule. Jesse's always more than happy to help!
Saturday Market, October 1, 2011 | 8 am - 12 noon
This Saturday, October 1st, join all your favorite market vendors, fellow market shoppers and our marketumbrella.org staff to celebrate the Crescent City Farmers Market's sweet (& savory) 16th birthday. We'll have music by longtime Asian pear vendor David Hoppenstedt, birthday cake from former sweets vendor Cheryl Scriptner of Bittersweet Confections, a Rocking R Dairy cow and goat milk toast, and a fun Marketeer activity for the kids. Cheryl is baking our birthday cake as her Crescent Fund payback. Soon she'll be mixing it up at her new shop (opening soon) located at 725 Magazine Street, just across the street from our Saturday market. Congrats, Cheryl! Happy Birthday, CCFM!!
Recipe of the Week
Fall is officially here! Some greens and winter squashes like cushaw have already made their debuts at the market. See the Monica's for first of the season winter squash for this Cushaw Pie, and bags of cut okra to freeze for gumbo as the weather continues to cool.
