Sweet Peaches and Spicy Chile at the Mid-Week Market

2015.08.26 Market Album-17Our vendors are always happy to see all the customers that come out to the Wednesday Market, many of which cannot make it to the Sunday Market. The Wednesday Market has shaped into a great Market of it’s own, and this Wednesday was no different. We had the usual favorites, including tomatoes, green beans, zucchini, flowers, and chile. If you haven’t tried the peaches from one of several vendors who bring them, you’re missing out! The sweet, tree-ripened fruits are the best in the area; you won’t find anything like them anywhere else! This Sunday, the Market will host The Tumbleweeds, so don’t miss out! We hope to see you this week, 9AM-12PM.

2015.08.23 Market Album-38Another great Market this Sunday, with live music from the one and only Zoltan Orkestar. We hope you enjoyed the Market as much as we did. The Apple Tree Cafe was busy all morning, and vendors were happy to see so many people out and about at the Market. Fruit was the big thing at the Market this week – vendors had grapes, watermelon, peaches, pears, blackberries, cantaloupe, honeydew, and apples. We also had green chile roasting on site – now is the time to stock up your freezer! The flowers are in full bloom as well, cosmos, giant sunflowers, gladiolas and zinnias are in season as well. Thank you to everyone that came out to the Market this weekend, it was fantastic to see the community supporting local agriculture! The fun continues this Wednesday, stop by for your grocery shopping after work. Vendors will be there with all the essentials, including green chile, tomatoes, peaches, and onions.

Wednesday Markets: Sustainable Agriculture and Local Food

2015.08.19 Wednesday Album-10When we started the Wednesday Market more than a decade ago, we were interested in providing a consistent and reliable food resource for the community, especially for those that couldn’t make it to a weekend Growers’ Market. This season, our mid-week Market has really proven its worth, both for our growers’ and for the customers that make it out. This week, we had almost 20 vendors and over 500 customers – our largest Wednesday Market to date. The Wednesday Markets are something entirely different from our larger Sunday Market. It’s the perfect place to stop if you have one thing on your mind: FOOD. There will not be music or burritos there, but you can count on vendors having the produce and goods you have come to expect from the Market, including chile roasting. So, whether you just need to stop for a couple of tomatoes and an onion for dinner, or you do all your grocery shopping on Wednesday, come visit us next week. Vendors will be there, 3PM-6PM, rain or shine. As always, WIC is accepted by all the vendors selling fresh produce.
