SFM Newsletter October 10th

Greetings All and Welcome!!  We thank this farmers market community from the bottoms of our hearts!  It’s the small random acts of kindness and the tremendous support of our incredible local sustainable farmers that really get us.. So, shop local farmers markets, shop often and be a part of a movement!

 

With mask recommendations still in place, please be sensitive to those in our community who are taking extra precautions.  If you don’t have a mask, please give them space.

 

This week we honor the Pomo Dancers who traditionally join the market on the second Sunday of October but, are unable to this year.  We ask you to please consider supporting their efforts.  The Pomo Project  https://www.facebook.com/PomoProject2021  We look forward to having them back in October of 2022!!

 

This Sunday, we are lucky to have special guests Remain in Light playing soulful funk music guaranteed to chase your blues away so you can get your groove on.

 

Veggie, herb and native plant starts are still available for consideration as you transition to a fall garden.

 

Don’t forget to bring your favorite kitchen and gardening tools.  Edgeworks will be back at the market street side!!

 

Get your summer veggie fix while you can with locally produced favorites including sweet corn, sweet and hot peppers,  field cucumbers and heirloom tomatoes, tomatillos not to mention.. lettuces, microgreens, spinach, tot soi, bok choy, mustard greens, kales, collards, swiss chard, napa and other cabbages, salad radishes, turnips, carrots, beets,  leeks, potatoes, mushrooms, broccolis, cauliflowers, green beans, red onions, garlic, summer and winter squashes, eggplants, herbs and so much more…

 

Antique apple and pear season is here with citrus season on the way!!   Bella Ridge is back with local apples and the famous Warren Pear.  There is still some time to enjoy peaches, plums and strawberries, blackberries, grapes and now, just in.. pomegranates and persimmons too!!

 

Have you ever felt like buying a bouquet of flowers just to be able to give them away to friends you see on your way home?  Make sure you also treat yourself to a special something from local food and craft vendors.  You deserve it!

 

Look for farmer inspired products like organic nut butters, almonds and walnuts.  You will also find meats, cheeses, olive oil, wines, vinegar, dried fruits, olives, honey, herbal teas, jams, hot sauces and pesto, breads, pastries and other homemade treats are just some of what you will find at the market.  The New Crop of Organic Almonds is here!!

 

We really appreciate your continued support.. we are working hard 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

 

Thank you for supporting your local small farmers especially now when they need you most.  The drought and extreme temperatures have had a devastating impact. It’s important that we all do our part to save our most precious resources.. water, farmers and locally produced food.

 

In Deepest Gratitude we acknowledge the many blessings of gathering in community.

We can’t wait to see you this and every Sunday!

 

Carla
