Hello Tuesday Market Friends-
Here we are, the last Tuesday Market of the year! And we’ll be going out with a bang! Our 29th market will be just as vibrant, colorful and abundant as ever. Even the weather is on our side! Take a break from election talk while you stroll around the farmers’ market being reminded of all that’s right in the world.
Now is the perfect time to stock up on value-added and specialty products that make great holiday gifts for teachers, hosts, neighbors, friends or family. Great gifts include jam from Beaumont’s Berries, yarn at Crabapple Farm, medicinal tinctures at Sawmill Herb Farm, ginger syrup at Old Friends Farm, sauerkraut from Host Hill and so much more!
Grow Food Northampton will be set up selling raffle tickets this week. You can also purchase tickets online and check out the great list of local prizes including $100 in Tuesday Market tokens!
Aaron Cooper will be back with us again this week. Aaron is hardy enough to commit to playing in November, rain or shine, and has become a favorite with his amazing range and stamina!
Mushrooms are pouring in to the market! New England Wild Edibles has a wide variety of locally foraged and cultivated mushrooms. Try something new! And ask Paul for cooking instructions if you aren’t sure.
Local artisan Jay Potash of Potash Pendants will be a special guest this week. Jay is bringing his beautiful hand wrapped raw crystal pendants. They make a lovely gift for yourself or a loved one!
The happy hens at Wingate Farm have been busy. They’re passing the word that they’ll be eggs, eggs and more eggs this week at market! Find Wingate Farm next to the purple market tent.
Sweet Birch Herbals is donating half of their proceeds this week to support the Standing Rock Reservation. Treat your body while helping a deserving cause.
Stock up on Justamere Tree Farm’s maple cream for yourself and gift-giving. You can freeze glass jars of maple cream to enjoy the taste throughout the winter. They also ship all maple products. Go here to place your order and check out the Season’s Eatings.
