Week 26, October 18, 2011 Old Rochester Farmers' Market

Thank you to all who have celebrated the bounty of the South Coast with us each Tuesday for the past 25 weeks. Today is the 26th week of the Old Rochester Farmers' Market, and we are excited for a beautiful Autumn day to enjoy while we come together fro 3-6:30 at the ORRJHS to offer our community the wonderful local foods grown and produced right in your backyard. You don't want the season to end? Consider stalking up on the items you enjoy when you shop today. Peppers are super easy to chop and freeze for the winter time, and butternut squashes will do well in a pantry or closet. It can be very easy to store foods, and doesn't have to include canning (although, canning is a great way, too). Just because you have to wait until the Spring to see the market again, doesn't mean you can't enjoy the market. We look forward to seeing you at the market today, and having you help us Keep it Local.

Apples from Cervelli Farm

It is already Week 25 of the Old Rochester Farmers' Market. Hard to believe it has almost been a half-year of celebrating some of the best that the South Coast has to offer in local foods. This week is no exception. We are gathering at the Old Rochester Junior High School from 3-6:30 pm with an amazing array of locally grown fruits and vegetables, breads and treats, meats and cheeses, jams and jellies, honey and seasonings, soaps and clothing, and doggie treats and doggie beds, too! This market offers that all important around the perimeter of the grocery store shopping, with some wonderful in the aisle items, as well. The Old Rochester Farmers' Market is a great way to get that shopping done, while keeping your purchases local--a great way to help preserve the beautiful South Coast landscape we all love. By supporting your local farmer, you are helping them keep their land agricultural, and not forcing them to sell it for development. Thank you for coming out to the ORFM to support local agriculture.
