September 18, 2012 Old Rochester Farmers' Market

While we should be open until 7pm, as most of you know there is a curfew in the Town of Mattapoisett.  So, we will be closing up shop at 6pm today.  So come along between 3 and 6pm to stock up on the most amazing and delicious local foods.  There will be a wide variety to choose from this week--both summer crops and fall crops are available, so it makes for fun and colorful shopping. Especially as the Pumpkins are here!  Pick up a few to celebrate the fact that this Saturday is the First Day of Autumn.

Also joining us this week is our favorite purveyor of made in the US olive oil and balsamic vinegar, Omega Olive Oil from Kingston.  Wonderful local breads and goodies, delectable jams to spread on the breads, and sweet local honey, too.

Participating this week:

Cervelli Farm, Rochester, MA Conventional
Winter squashes, pumpkins, and apples are in at Cervelli Farm.  Scott will have crates of apples for you to choose from.  Applesauce, apple pie, apple crumble, apple bread--the possibilities are endless.  Making a batch of delicious applesauce and then freezing or canning it will ensure that you have some of that wonderful sweetness this winter.  This week, Scott will have available tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, summer squash, zucchini, cucumbers, and eggplant.

Skinny Dip Farm, Westport, MA Certified Organic
Hannah of Skinny Dip Farm reports, "This is the best time of year, when we still have summer crops, and also are starting to have fall crops!"  This week Hannah will bring along to the market IPM (low spray) apples.  Also their own organic watermelon, eggplant, peppers, summer squash, flowers, tomatoes, salad greens, onions.  New fall crops like potatoes, leeks, winter squash, turnips will be at this week's market, too.  Lots of good stuff!

Value Added Foods

Al's Backwood's Berrie Co., Plymouth, MA
Each week it is a new surprise over at Al's tent.  Al delights in creating new and visually appealing jams and jellies.  The apple pie, blueberry rhubarb and jalepeno pepper have been some of the favorites this season.  Do not be fooled into thinking these jams are only for toast--we've used them for fish, fruit spreads for pancakes or french toast, and the classic pb&j.  Each week Al also has raw, local honey, too.

Omega Olive Oil, Kingston, MA
This olive oil is produced from California olives, which means it is a high quality olive oil from right here in the states--how lucky for us.  Extra-virgin, organic olive oil is now available at the market!

Additional Necessities

Willow Grove, Fall River, MA
Back with her lovely soaps, the Willow Grove product line has expanded with body lotions, bath teas and other great body care products.  This week Kathy is featuring her lavender lotion, citrus lotion, spritzers and bath oils in either lavender or citrus.  Bath salts in lavender or rose will also be available. Using only natural ingredients these products are a dream.  The hand made neck and eye pillows are fabulous for providing yourself with some relaxation time.  Stop on in the Willow Grove tent to check it all out.
