Fearrington Farmers' Market
Tuesdays, 4 - 6 pm
April through November

Let's spend more time outdoors!

Good morning!  Labor Day weekend is approaching, and although it's probably best to stay away from large gatherings this year, we can still enjoy an outdoor picnic with family and a few close friends.  The market has plenty of summer veggies, meats, and more to fill out your menu.

It's definitely pepper season, and jalapeno poppers make a great portable snack.  I'm partial to this open-faced baked version made with cashew cheese, but hey, you can certainly grab some Beechcrest bacon and go all out if you wish!

How about a lightly-dressed potato salad, using a mustard-y vinaigrette instead of heavy mayonnaise dressing?  This recipe adds dill pickles to the mix (which you can also find at market)!

Need more ideas?  Here's a stash of picnic-worthy recipes including veggie salads (many of which don't require lettuce -- I know it's hard to find in this heat!), sandwiches, finger foods, and more.


This Week's Featured Vendors

Beechcrest Farm thanks all our old and new customers for their continued support at market this year!  We'll have bacon, farm sausage, beef brats, stew, ground, and patties, along with a good variety of steaks.  The slightly cooler weather means hopefully roasts, soups, and stews are just around the corner.  We have you covered on the meats and bones you'll need for those, no worries!  See you Tuesday.
Bold Bagels will be at the market this week! 
If you would like to pre-order for next week, you can order here starting on Wednesday morning:
Bonlee Grown Farm

We're harvesting sweet bell peppers and okra every day! Tender okra and peppers that come in all shapes, sizes, and colors: purple, coral, yellow, red, orange, and green. Peppers are great to freeze or cook fresh for fajitas, stuffed peppers, stir-fry, pizza, salad, and more. And come take a picture of our okra recipes for ideas!
We also have homemade hot pepper relish, sweet crunchy pickles, kosher dills, sweet and sour pickles, pickled beets, cucumber relish, pickled okra, pickled squash, honey, jams, and pepper jellies!  Plus fresh-baked banana bread with nutmeg and ginger! 
Come get sun-loving ornamental peppers that range in color from yellow to black with orange, purple, and red in between!  We'll have a variety of Succulents, Coleus, and Spider plants too.  Snake plants, Moses In the Cradle, and Aloe make great shady houseplants!

Good morning! We're ready and rarin' to go this week. Our selection is winding down a bit, but we'll be adding more items in the weeks ahead. For now, we have delicious apples and cooking pears, plus more. We'll have paw paws available for pre-order soon for farm pick up only. We'll announce when those become available through our newsletter. Here's the full availability list (though we often bring more items at the last minute as they surprise us with their availability the day of market): 
  • apples, red delicious
  • apples, winesap
  • basil
  • garlic
  • lettuce, summer crisp
  • onions, red
  • pears, moonglow
  • sweet potato greens
  • tomato, red slicers

Info regarding pre-orders:
We offer pre-orders for pick up at market. However, our deadline is Mondays at 6am, so by the time this newsletter goes out, our orders for Fearrington Market pickup are already closed. You can follow us on facebook or instagram for a heads up. All orders for the week open up at noon on Saturdays here:
Off Grid in Color is your local Meat Boutique offering quality meat that is sustainably raised with love, mother earth, and you in mind.

We offer an array of pasture-raised chicken and forest-raised pork. All animals are raised outdoors (eating all the grass, bugs, and grubs they can find) and given non-GMO feed. 
Chicken is back in stock! We have drumsticks, thighs, bone-in breast, boneless skinless breast, hearts and livers! No pork till mid-September. Pre-orders are strongly recommended and due by Monday at 9pm using this link.

It's never too early to reserve your holiday turkey. We've already pre-sold over 100 turkeys! We are at our second tier early bird price for unfrozen turkeys, now through September 1st, at $7.50/lb! Only 13 left. We also have a frozen turkey option for $7/lb. RSVP early, save, and donate. Check out this link for more details.
Perry-winkle Farm

A new bed of arugula is ready, so we will have a cooler full of arugula at market this week.  Unfortunately we have been selling out before everyone who wants some is able to get any so please know that we will be picking even more now that we have this new planting.  We will also have a cooler full of basil.  We will have both 1/2 pound bags for those folks wanting to make some pesto and we will have some smaller bags.  A question that we get asked is how to store the basil without it turning black like it will if refrigerated.  We recommend closing the basil bag so it is airtight, and then leave it on your counter or somewhere that is cool and out of the sun.  
We will be bringing bushels of three gold flesh potatoes: Huckleberry Gold, German Butterball, and Bintje, along with our red-skinned, pink flesh Terra Rosa. In this "Covid-19 Era" we will be doing the bagging for you, but we want you to be able to pick exactly which potatoes you want and to be able to continue "Mixing n' Matching" from the varieties we have. 
Another round of glads is blooming, so look for those along with a bucket of colorful zinnias.  There will also be lots of mixed bouquets on the flower rack.  And there will be some eggs from our pastured hens.
with gratitude,
