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

Last call for holiday orders!

Wow, this market season has really flown by!  Up until this weekend, I was still halfway in summer harvest mode -- picking peppers and okra by the bucketful.  I hope you all stayed warm and cozy during the recent chill (though the same cannot be said for my peppers and okra).  The weather looks nice for Tuesday, so come on out for the second-to-last market of the season!

We'll have plenty of seasonal produce to choose from, including a wide assortment of winter squashes for your holiday pies.  But if you aren't up for baking one from scratch this year, Gramma D is still taking orders!

We had a full class on Saturday with Chef Cate Smith and Lee preparing delicious, plant-based recipes for the holidays with an enthusiastic response to the tastings.  "We'll be back," is an oft-repeated response to our classes and farm dinners, and now, you can give a gift that is sure to delight friends and family -- gift certificates for healthy cooking classes, farm dinners, and/or produce boxes picked up at the farm.  Go to peacefulriver.farm for more information and to purchase online.

Perry-winkle Farm
 
Saturday morning was quite chilly as we headed off to the Saturday market in Carrboro. The  "way below" average temperatures brought the first "killing frost" to Perry-winkle.  In preparation for the colder weather we picked all the peppers and eggplants that we could. The good news is that we grow a lot of fall vegetables that can take colder temperatures, so this week we will still have bunches of kale and collard greens, a basket full of savoy and smooth skinned fall cabbage and lots of spicy arugula. And as I said there will be lots of sweet and spicy peppers and loads of eggplants as well. 

We will have a cooler full of frozen Freedom Ranger chicken at market.  There will also be some eggs from Michael's pastured laying hens.  Remember to come early, it will get dark around 5:30 and we will be packing up the van!

Poverty Hollow Farm Kitchen

We will be at the market this week. Haven't put much thought into what to bake, but we will have a couple of yeast breads, sweet breads, and big cookies. Still a great selection of jams and pickles. Don't forget to come out early -- we start packing up around 5:00!
