Hey Market Friends —
It’s mid-October, and last week brussels sprouts arrived at market. Post-frost is the best time to start eating these mini cabbage wonders. This week, if there’s a chill in the air, there will be hot cider at Park Hill Orchards and warm prepared foods at Beets and Barley along with the always-warm pizza from Laughing Tomato. If it actually is in the lower 70’s, the warm weather food and drinks will keep coming. Will, Eli and Becca — a talented crew of busking Hampshire College students will be playing tunes.
As the end of market season nears, I want to remind you to bring back your pile of Tuesday Market bagshare bags so we can continue the awesome program next year. No excuses, okay? Because last week we received a package with a bagshare bag in it all the way from Cincinnati, OH that some conscientious customers sent back to us.
I love this rainbow chard woman whose clothes match the stems
Thinking about planting some garlic this fall? Bear Root Herb Farm has seed quality garlic for you. Music is a great variety.
And finally, thanks to everyone who listened to our short but memorable vendor open mike last Tuesday. It lasted about 15-20 minutes. We hope to do it again but open it up to more people. Here I am below crooning some good farm and earth folk songs.

See you at market!
