September 25, 2012 Old Rochester Farmers' Market

Pumpkins abound at the ORFM

It is Week 17 of the Old Rochester Farmers' Market, and we are super excited that Autumn has officially arrived.  That means Fall Crops are here, yet because Autumn has only just begun we can still enjoy some of summer's bounty.  There is such an amazing variety available to us as a result.  Come along to the market to find (and freeze or can) the last of summer deliciousness.  There will be eggplant, peppers, squashes, beans, tomatoes and cucumbers all ready for you to put up for the winter.  Also at the market, there will be the most delicious pumpkins, butternut squash, acorn squash, apples, leeks and turnips, too!
