When Seasons Collide


“We know that in September, we will wander through the warm winds of summer's wreckage. We will welcome summer's ghost.”
― Henry Rollins


This is that strange, slightly schizophrenic time of year when we crave cool, crisp days and but hate to bid adieu to the culinary delights of summer. The good news is you can have your pie, and eat it to!
You can savor sliced tomatoes and sweet corn with your meal, and enjoy a slice of apple pie for dessert. These are the days when zucchini, cucumbers, peppers, peaches, eggplant and the other gifts of summer mingle with Fall's hardier produce... think pears, apples, and butternut squash. And the season's first garlic is here now too, and that means Garlic Fest can't be far behind (October 6th & 7th in fact). Come experience the best of both seasons this Saturday!
POP Club
Farmers are Rock Stars!
This week's POP Club activity encourages kids to meet the market's true superstars, our farmers! Stop by the POP Club table and pick up your farmer autograph sheet and then go meet the farmers! This week's stars are Farmer Ben at Scholl Orchards, Farmer Jess at Salvaterra's Gardens, Farmer Brie at Blooming Glen Farm, and Farmer George at Pheasant Hill Farm. Collect all four autographs and you'll earn $4 in POP Bucks!

Sign up for the kids POP Club at the EFM INFO tent
Eating with the Seasons
Mushroom & Lentil Bolognaise
(Vegetarian)

This is a nice recipe for transitioning into Fall and any of Primordia's mushroom's would work nicely here. It calls for canned tomato paste but we'd recommend making your own with the abundance of fresh tomatoes still available at the market!

Love your Farmers
Peace Tree Farm
Peace Tree recipe for happiness:
Plant joy!
Grow abundance!
Find peace in the soil.
Share the love.
Feed the birds, butterflies, and bumble bees.
Gratitude abounds.
Backyard Growers
Ed was out in the scorching heat picking the season's first Gala apples this week! Get there early for first picks. And look for some pumpkins for pie bakers too.

Comfrey is this week's featured perennial. It's a good compost activator, will die back to the ground in the winter, and does not get woody. Because of its deep tap root, Comfrey is extremely drought tolerant and a useful clay busting plant. It produces violet, pink or creamy yellow flowers. And be sure to Ask about the Hummingbird Mint Blue Boa!
Primordia Mushroom Farm
Tastes like Chicken!
Primordia will have Chicken of the Woods this Saturday.
This summer/fall woodland is remarkable in its chicken-like flavor and texture. If you have not yet tried it, come check it out!

Scholl Orchards

Ben asked that I share these four important words with you: SUMMER IS NOT OVER! With ninety degree temps that should be obvious, right? Scholls says to heck with winter squash and pumpkins, they're still talkin' peaches, plums, tomatoes (lots of tomatoes), zucchini, cukes, and melons. In fact, the best melon of all (in your EFM market manager's humble opinion) arrives this weekend - CANARY MELLON! And, because it is September after all, you'll find Bartlett pears and Honeycrisp apples, and the first Gala and Macs of the season arrive tomorrow!
Salvaterra's Gardens
Escarole, Pak Choy and Green Cabbage arrive this week at Salvaterra's. Try this recipe for Escarole and White Bean Saute.
Farm Fresh

When you buy two salads, energy bites are only $1! Stop by to see what other vegan salads their volunteer has out to sample.

Music, Art & Crafts
Locally Grown Music
Billy Bauer: 10am - Noon
Billy Bauer picked up a guitar after listening to a Dave Matthews/Tim Reynolds album, and as they say, the rest is history. He says he didn't intend on being a musician; however, that changed when he bought an acoustic guitar, and following the advice of his father, turned sorrow into songwriting. Billy is one of the first musical acts to support the fresh and local music scene at EFM and we are happy to have him return again this season. Don't miss Billy and his original music this Saturday at the Music Tent from 10 am to 12 noon on the north lawn of the Circle.

Bring your child to the market this Saturday to celebrate the joy of music with Miss Lena of Sing N Move.
