Sophie DeMaio from Maine Farmland Trust who volunteers at the Market’s EBT/SNAP/CC-Debit station reminds those who received Harvest Bucks earlier in the season that now is the time to redeem them.
“Harvest season is a great time to redeem your fruit and vegetable vouchers! Use them with the vendors just like cash. A great variety of produce is available right now! Vouchers expire on 12/31/16, so cash them in now for the most selection. Stock your pantry and freezer for the winter months!”
Music this week is by Fiddling Friends. Bound to be lively.
Our apologies for listing Scot Cannon back on September 2nd. The editor was unaware that Scott had to cancel due to personal business. He assures us that weather permitting, he’ll be playing at Market on Friday, October 21.
ROLLING IN INTO FALL
We mentioned apples last week. This reminds me that Good Food/Monroe Cheese Studio has sauerkraut. Baked apples, sauerkraut, sausages or pork chops cooked over the kraut, and a roasted potato–add some carrots and you have yourself a real fall meal.
Did you know that the Market offers MOFGA Certified wild Maine blueberries nearly year round? This will be (if the harvest is not rained out and last week gets that honor) absolutely the last week for Burke Hill Farm. Most years when Burke Hill finishes the fresh blueberry harvest, Highland Organics® takes up the blueberry challenge with the new crop of frozen berries right through the winter. Check in with Theresa to find out when her berries will be available. Meanwhile, she always has a huge selection of blueberry teas and barque.
FIVE BAKERS AT MARKET
Vegan, gluten and dairy free from suecakes! A few of the items in the case that day: Quinoa Breakfast Bar, Blackberry Lime, Chocolate & Chocolate Mint Whoopie Pies, Chocolate Doughnut with Powdered Sugar and more.
Market is rich with delights from the oven! Good Food/Monroe Cheese Studio, suecakes!, Sweet Henry’s, Enchanted Kitchen at Firefly Farm and Plymouth Pond Farm Bakery. What an amazing spread. Sweet or savory, gluten rich or vegan and gluten free, you’ll find it at Market. Bagels, croissants, hand pies, fruit pies, scones, pudding cake, cookies galore, and of course, too many kinds of bread to list here.
