SFM Newsletter October 11th

Hello Sebastopol Farmers Market Enthusiasts.  We welcome you back this Sunday for a glorious fall day at the market with cooler temperatures and if we’re lucky, smoke free air.  By now you might have heard that one of the market member farms, Triple T was deeply affected by the fires.  They lost most of their infrastructure.  It is with sadness and hope that we ask for your help in getting them the resources they need to recover and hopefully join us at the market soon.  There is a GoFundMe page for them at the following link gf.me/u/y3bvsw   You can also donate at the farmers market info booth on Sunday.

 

If you haven’t had the chance, now’s the time to check out the market online store and order by 3p on Saturday for curbside pickup, 11a-1:30p on Sunday.  www.sebastopolfarmmarket.org  Each week there’s something new.

 

Have you ever seen so many amazing works of art.. the market is a canvas of gorgeous, colorful vegetables including lettuces, microgreens, arugula spinach, tot soi, bok choy, mustard greens, kales, collards, swiss chard, cabbages, carrots, beets, onions, leeks, potatoes, mushrooms, broccolis, cauliflowers, summer and winter squashes, tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, peppers hot and sweet, herbs and so much more… Now is the time to start your canning projects and stock your shelves and freezers for the winter and, yes!!  it’s the perfect time to go pumpkin shopping.  🙂

 

Apple season is in full swing with persimmons and pomegranates arriving at the market..  But, wait, there’s more.. you will still find peaches, strawberries, raspberries, melons, figs, pears, grapes and more!!

 

It’s the perfect time to pick up plants for your fall garden.   And beautiful FLOWERS too!!

 

Look for farmer inspired products like organic nuts and nut butters with the new crop of almonds and red walnuts.  This year’s English walnut crop is just weeks way, meats, cheeses, olive oil, vinegar, dried fruits, olives, honey, herbal teas, jams, hot sauces and pestos, breads, pastries, pastas and other homemade treats are just some of the treats you will find at the market.

 

Now more than ever, we could use your help as we continue to struggle to keep our market strong and our community programs going.  Please consider donating.  Special thanks for the donations that keep coming in through the market’s GoFundMe campaign.  https://gf.me/u/x3svaq

 

Please help us to keep the market open by wearing your masks and social distancing at all times

All food and drink is to go.  There is no eating or drinking inside the market.

 

Thank you all for your continued support of this local market, local farmers and entrepreneurs.

We could not do this without you.
