Good mornng
This is it-our last week outdoors til May-the months have slipped by at the speed of light. Starting next wek we will be happily ensconced in our winter home at the Bath Freight Shed-just a few minutes and 127 steps south towards the bridge. You can't miss the signs on the long gray building just behind the Customs House. And lots of parking, plus a heated loo! How much better does winter in Maine get?

While fall veggies are pouring in-there are still a few tomatoes, peppers and eggplant around, and a few other late summer prizes. Buy 'em now and freeze for February!

The Rotary Club will be here for their last week, selling spring bulbs. Still time to plant, as late as Thanksgiving usually and its warm, soooo...stock up on spring beauty. .

Happy t shirts from Fuzzy Udder make great stocking stuffers. they have lunch boxes too!
  From our vendors-specials, s ales, seasonal

Want to pick your own cranberries- on Thursday, Friday & Sunday. Call Dave Popp at 737 4351 to let them know you want to come and then go all the way to the house at the end of the road and beat on the door. Picking is good til the end of the month or the first hard frost. And beaucoup savings.

Rememnber, Coppertail, Hawthorne and Thistle, and Mana Medicinals will be joining us for the winter market. Leaving for the winter are Fuzzy Udder Creamery, Jyang_Lee Oriental Specialties, New Roots Farm, and Popp Farm. So stock up on the things you love from these vendors.

Sisters Soap, made smooth and soft on your skin with goats milk, at Appleton Creamery
Pemaquid Lobster and Seafood has hit the jackpot with it's smoked whitefish and salmon pates. Creamy and full of delicate but genuine flavor, these sell out rapidly. Get there early for sure.

Springdale Farm specializes in tender rose veal, offering a broad range of cuts. Plan a special meal around this traditional delicacy. Make a light sauce with the last of the summer tomatoes-if there are just a few more, and serve with braised fennel or broccolini and a crunchy baguette from Borealis.

Caitlin at Appleton Creamery has some silky fresh yogurt and her own feta on offer right now. Try the soaps made by her sister-so soft and smooth-good for sensitive skin.

Sea Trials, another innovative and delicious cheese from Hahns End
New Roots is going out with a bang-green globes of early brussels sprouts on long stalks, and great deals on greens and root veggies. Dave Popp has lots of nice peppers and some mighty spaghetti squashes too. Much of what these growers offer is safe in a root cellar for a while, so grab it before they go.

Fuzzy Udder's cheeses will keep for a few weeks;. Check with them aobut which might be freezable. An freezing works well with the dumplings, crab rangoon, and egg rolls at Jyang_Lee; try some of Angelas sauces too-they brighten up a whole range of foods. Those garden tiles she has make great gifts, by the way.

Hahns End is feturing Sea Trials, with a gloriously dark rind and richtexture and taste. Try some soon. And don't forget their signature Eeanor Buttercup, a tender treat, and so nice melted on a slab of grainy something from Hootenanny or Borealis.

Just a few of the plethora of peppers at Popps Farm

Tarbox is growing an ode to brassicas-napa and green and red cabbages, broccoli broccolin and cauliflower, kales
and bok choi. All quite happy to support the transition to fall weather and complex bowls and stews...

MicroMainear Mainea shold be back this week, so stop and pick up some light and leafy flavor bombs from Judy-she has great serving suggestions, please pick her fine culinary brain!

Sparrow Farm continues to bring in those brightly colored cauliflowers- great taste and utility and a table brightener par excellence. Their cranberries and farm made cranberry sauces are coming too,so happily cut a corner with their fresh preserves.

At Shepherds & Such, pick up smudge to clarify the air and lend strength to your dreams
At Hootenanny the bagels and bialys are looking especially fine. And don't forget that nothing says Saturday morning like a fresh chewy pretzel with JUST the right sprinkle of chunky salt...

Want your favorite potatoes, squash or beets? Variety rules at Goranson Farm, so happily plan your holiday feast while waiitng to pay for that lovely maple syrup and their addictive braising greens.

At Shepherds and Such Kim has added yet another smudge-maple, designed to enhance balance in your life. Sounds sweet, and finally a use for all those maple leaves! Her bee, bird, butterfly and tree candles make nice accents for our holiday tables too,

Check out Beryls for her savory quiches-retrurning for the winter. And those were DIVINE triple chocolate cupcakes she brought in last week, I mean, really..
Red Beans and Rice was one of the first to make music for us here at the market, and their versatility and range continue to feed our spirits. Enjoy their sweet sounds chasing the morning mist.
