Hey Market Friends —
My love of food and cooking largely comes from my mother and from her mother. My almost 95 year old grandmother loves watching The Barefoot Contessa on TV and, although she doesn’t cook as much as she used to, she now inspires her caregivers to bake for the first time ever and make Tate’s Chocolate Chip and Toffee cookies from a TV recipe and then distribute their cookies far and wide. These cool, fall days inspire me to bake again, too. For Ben’s birthday this weekend, I made a blueberry pie from frozen Benson Place blueberries and Justamere Tree Farm maple sugar. And today, for a potluck, I made baked apples from some Apex Macintoshes with more maple sugar and Cricket Creek butter. In case you haven’t found it yet, Crabapple Farm has their own wheat flour freshly ground at their stand. Ask them about the varieties they grow because they all have a story.
This week Carr’s Ciderhouse will be at market — sorry for anyone who got confused by my photos of their beautiful new labels last week. And rumor has it, Rodrigo y Gabriela will be making an appearance at market to play us some of their amazing flamenco rumba music before their performance at the Calvin on Tuesday. Firecrow Handwovens will also be back with their beautiful scarves and other textiles.
