Hey Market Friends —
Fall has arrived bringing with it broccoli and cauliflower and winter squashes and honeycrisp apples and ginger and pears and amazing chicken of the woods mushrooms. It’s time to make soup and tea and roast a chicken and then make more soup and broth and applesauce. Don’t worry, you can still get shaved ice and ice pops and cider slushies and lots of greens for salads and tomatoes and talk about how the equinox isn’t here yet so it’s not really fall. You can do that, too.
I made Ben take a couple photos of this amazing chicken of the woods mushroom that Paul brought to market last week for all of you out there that missed it or saw it once it already had pieces missing. No guarantee that there will be another one like it this week.

Did any of you make it to the Farm Fancy Ginger Inspired dinner at Old Friends Farm? Yum.
Love the Park Hill Orchard crisp pears
Many thanks to Erin McKeown and Mary Witt for the great music last week
And in case you missed it in the Daily Hampshire Gazette or circulating on Facebook, here are Ben’s thoughts about climate change and farming and raising kids in this time and the People’s Climate March this coming Sunday September 21st (the equinox) in NYC. He and Silas hope to see you there!
See you at market!
