Tuesday Market News– October 3, 2017

 

Welcome to October! Plan a stop to Tuesday Market this week and you’ll find a huge array of vegetables for all your cooking plans, and likely be inspired by something new! We have six more markets left in our season. Six more chances to gather up all of that good food at Tuesday Market!


This week’s specialty pizza is- Roasted Garlic Spread, mozzarella, maple roasted butternut squash, red onions, goat cheese and fresh sage. A delicious Fall combination!

 

 

Market favorite and super-talent, Eli Catlin will be playing music throughout the afternoon. He’s pictured above playing guitar at last week’s market when an impromptu band formed! 

We are sad to announce that Tart will not be joining us for the final six markets of the season. They will certainly be missed but you can always get your Tart fix at their bakery on Main St.

The market wouldn’t be the same without bread and we are happy to welcome Hungry Ghost Bread this week and every week for the rest of the season!

 

Emmett Leader’s project to raise funds for SNAP Matching at Tuesday Market continues this week and next week. Two more chances to buy a bowl made with clay dug right downtown in Northampton, with 100% of your money going toward SNAP Matching at Tuesday Market!So far, Emmett has raised over $1,600! We have given out just over $7,000 in Matched SNAP dollars so far this season and are currently offering a $5 match. Emmett’s contribution really makes a big difference!

 

 

 

In the first 28 weeks of our season $33,825 has been spent by SNAP customers at Tuesday Market (including SNAP, Matching and HIP). This is a huge amount of healthy, local food being enjoyed by low-income individuals and families in our community!

The following farms are currently processing HIP at Tuesday Market: Crabapple Farm, Wingate Farm, Red Fire Farm, Old Friends Farm, Hart Farm and Park Hill Orchard.

Stop by the purple market tent to learn more!
If you know someone who receives SNAP benefits, make sure they’re in the know- tell them about HIP!

Apex Orchard reports that they will have freshly picked Bosc and Shenandoah Pears this week (pictured). It may be their last week for peaches and they’ll have two varieties including some seconds for canning, freezing or making jam. They will also have grapes and plenty of apples!
 

Sawmill Herb Farm has a couple of intriguing workshops coming up:
