This Week at the Market: October 8th

Thanks to everyone who came to our first Oktoberfest at the market last weekend. Despite the rainy weather, we had a ton of people come out for bratwurst, kids activities and beer! Thanks to the generous donation of Double Mountain Brewery (and the market goers who drank a pint despite the weather), we raised over $350! We look forward to making this an annual event!

Eats

Fall is here! There continues to be several varieties of winter squash and wild mushrooms in addition to fall favorites such as Varieties of winter squash.cauliflower and potatoes. If you haven’t stocked up on apples and pears for sauces, butters and jam, this is the week to do it!

Dragonfly Forge will be at the market again this Sunday. Don’t forget to bring your tools and knives to be sharpened. For a complete list of vendors, visit our market map.

Kids’ Activities

Kids can enjoy face-painting, stories and coloring with Enso Theatre Ensemble.

Tunes

Pretend you’re in Hawaii from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. when Haleakala will perform traditional Hawaiian music played on the slack key and ukulele.

Save the date for Sunday, October 29th, the last day of our regular season. Our sixth annual Halloween Carnival is not to be missed. Bring the whole family for trick-or-treating, kid’s music, delicious food and several kids crafts.

After a three week hiatus, we will be back for our Harvest Market on Sunday, November 19th. You will be able to stock up for Thanksgiving and the winter.
