Should be a zesty market this week: Spice Revolution, Guyank Hot Sauce and Calcutta Kitchen in the house!

dear shoppers,

Spice Revolution will be here with a new shipment of powdered saffron from Spain. I’ve been saving this recipe for baked cod with chorizo and saffron from Real Simple magazine until Linzi’s  return.

Our new meat vendor Southtown Farms, has lots of chorizo and Pura Vida should have cod this week. If not, you can use hake (it’s less expensive than cod but is no less delicious and has the same “flake” factor).

We’ve made this a few times at our house now and are always amazed at how easy it is to prepare. Definitely do-able on a Tuesday night between soccer and chorus.

Also: if anyone is interested in purchasing rabbit at the market, Southtown Farms will bring it upon request. You can e-mail Farmer Matt Soldano directly at They run $6.49 a lb, and run between 3 and 3.5 pounds each.

Honey Locust is making an appearance this week so grab your elderberry elixir while you can. I know ebola’s making headlines – but the flu season is upon us.

Please welcome our new honey vendor this week, Hudson Apiaries. And, remember: our chili cook-off is slated for Nov. 8th.

See you at the market!



Don’t volunteer at the market? Here’s a glimpse of what you’re missing…

dear shoppers, By the time most of you arrive to the Library parking lot on Saturdays, our lovely farmer’s market is up and running and perfectly picturesque – as if the billowing tents, overflowing produce bins and vintage chalk board signs, gently floated down on a burlap carpet from a big farm cloud in theContinue Reading

Bring your umbrellas!

dear shoppers, It’s likely to be a soggy market…though how can we complain after the sunny string of Saturdays we’ve had this season. Though we can’t keep you dry we can keep you warm:  Brooklyn Bean will have their tangy breakfast burritos hot off the grill and, this week, they are bringing back their autumnContinue Reading

squish squash…

Autumn is officially here. You can tell by the myriad varieties of thick-skinned squash turning up at market: spaghetti, acorn, buttercup and Hubbard. Just the thought of them makes me want to dig out my favorite wooly sweater and my soup pot. When buying squash, it’s easy to get won over by their painterly colorContinue Reading

Crisp crackers for a crisp fall morning – Saratoga Crackers is here this week! So is the knife sharpener

And lots & lots of peppers: Bull’s Horn, Cubanelles and Japanese shishitos. This is the time of year when they take over the market and make it look so textured and painterly. If you haven”t tried shishito peppers, head straight to the MX Morningstar tent to get some this week. These “mini” thin-walled green pepperContinue Reading
