Fearrington Farmers' Market
Tuesdays, 4 - 6 pm
April through November
Late summer and early fall days might spell the end of peach season, but they bring a whole lot of other sweet things to market: apples, pears, winter squash, and figs!  Fresh figs are a special treat, available for a short time toward the end of the summer, so pick some up this week if you can!  I prefer to snack on them raw, but here are a few recipe ideas.

You'll also find an increasing assortment of winter squashes, including butternuts, pumpkins, "cheese" squash, delicata, and more.  These vary in sweetness, and may be featured in both sweet and savory dishes -- winter squash is for more than just pumpkin pie!  You're likely to see some unusual squashes throughout the season, so ask your farmer for tasting notes and ideas about how to use them.

Hope to see you out and enjoying the cooler evenings!

Hi All!

Just wanted to share this note from the person of our Saluki fans - Bobby and Zarafa.

"For the second time, I bought a bag from you at the Fearrington Farmers' Market yesterday. Mon dieu! Your treats are like pure gold to our two Salukis.  Nothing ever, across two continents, has garnered their attention and devotion, as do your treats!  -- Lucia H.

Perry-winkle Farm
While Michael, Cathy and Olive are enjoying their last few days of vacation, Victoria and Taij will again be representing the farm at market this Tuesday.  Rumor has it that they will be bringing lots of goodies with them.  For those of you that have been asking about “when will our beans come in”...  there will be some this week, and we hope for many weeks to come.  We greatly prefer picking beans in the late summer/fall.   

They will also have a cooler of arugula, an assortment of sweet peppers, bunches of scallions, some eggplant, and a basket of Terra Rosa potatoes.  In the flower department there will be a rack of mixed bouquets, sunflower bunches and a bucket of glads.  And there will be eggs from our pastured hens.
We look forward to seeing everyone next week, but in the meantime...
with special gratitude for Victoria and Taij and all they do for us!
