Market Updates
-----------------
Heads up, everyone! This Saturday is our last market of month, after which our winter schedule begins. We are open year-round, but December through March, we operate the 1st and 3d Saturday of each month.

For many, this is a time of year to express gratitude for the food on our tables, as well as the work and resources required to produce that food. For those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving, your farmers have been preparing for you. Find heaps of celery from Persephone Farm and Brussels sprouts at Happy Harvest, fresh crannies from Eagle Organic Cranberries, and just harvested herb mixes of parsley, thyme, and sage from Gales Meadow.

SWARM, which works to support healthy pollinator habitats, will be at market this week to bring you holiday products such as cranberry infused honey.

  • Back this week: 503 Distilling, Birkeland Farm, Bull Run Distillery, Freeland Spirits, Dancing Light Ranch, Dragonfly Forge, NOBULL Scratch Starters, Sea2spoons. Additionally, Laurel Ridge Winery will be making a guest appearance, so now is a good time to replenish your wine supply.

  • Off this week: Belamy Leather, Mic's Mix, More Bees, Stone Barn Brandyworks, Westward Whiskey, and Wet Wizard.

  • Last market of the season: Sadly, there are more farewells to say this week. Fill your pantry with winter squash, onions and potatoes for the winter from Deep Roots Farm and Sweet Leaf Organic Farm; this will be their last market of 2019. Thank you for all the beautiful produce and a great season!

  • Off for the season: Cranberry Kitchen, Alleamin
Quince is an excellent fruit for dessert and appetizers. Membrillo, or quince paste, pairs with cheese and makes an excellent gift for the holidays.
This is your last Saturday to catch live music with us in 2019 so don't miss it! Grab a warm beverage and meal and enjoy How Long Jug Band playing live. We look forward to seeing you!

Tip: Use a food processor’s thin slicing blade attachment to prepare the Brussels sprouts.

1/2 – 3/4 c honey
1 tbsp orange zest

Roasted Hubbard Squash Pumpkin Pie
Amy Holmes Hehn, 2011 Pumpkin Pie Contest winner

CRUST
Ingredients:
1 1/2 c flour 1 tsp white sugar
1/2 tsp salt 1/8 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp butter
5 tbsp shortening
1 egg yolk 2 tsp distilled white vinegar
3 ice cubes
1/2 c cold water

  1. Measure butter & shortening onto a plate and place in freezer for about 20 minutes.
  2. Measure flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse for a few seconds to mix.
  3. Add the butter and shortening into the dry ingredients and pulse off and on for about 1 minute until the pieces of butter and shortening are pea-sized. Do not over-process.
  4. In a measuring cup, mix egg yolk and vinegar together; add ice cubes and water. Chill for 3 - 4 minutes.
  5. Remove flour and shortening from processor, put into a large mixing bowl.
  6. Sprinkle approximately 4 - 5 tablespoons of the egg/water/vinegar mixture, a little at a time, into in the flour, mixing gently with a fork, until clumps of sticky dough begin to form and hold together. The key to this is keeping the dough from being too wet and not overmixing.
  7. Place dough onto plastic wrap, press into a flat disk without kneading or overworking, and chill in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  8. Remove from refrigerator and roll out, lift into pie pan using a rolling pin, prick bottom with a fork and dress entire crust with egg white.

FILLING
Ingredients:
2 c Hubbard Squash puree
2 tbsp butter, cut into small pieces
2/3 c sugar 1/8 c bourbon (e.g., Wild Turkey)
1/2 tbsp molasses, 3 eggs, and 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
2/3 c milk
1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 tsp + 2 pinches salt pinch of cinnamon
pinch of powdered ginger 2 tsp vanilla extract

  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees. Halve the squash and scoop out the seeds and fibers; cut into quarters. Place the squash in a baking dish and cover with foil. Bake until tender when pricked with a fork, about 40 minutes. While still hot, scoop the squash away from the rind and into a food processor. Puree until smooth.
  2. Transfer 2 cups of squash puree to a large bowl and stir in the butter so it melts. Whisk in the sugar, bourbon, molasses, eggs and egg yolk, milk, nutmeg, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Carefully pour the squash mixture into the unbaked crust. Sprinkle the edges of the crust with Sugar in the Raw. Bake the pie until the center is just set, 45 -60 minutes.
  4. Cool the pie on a rack. Serve at room temperature or chilled.

Featured Products
November 23rd, 2019
Yacon
Sweet Leaf Organic Farm
This Andean root vegetable is juicy and crunchy, kind of like a mild apple, pear, or jicama. If cooking, roast it as you would other root vegetables. Robert from the farm says he likes it best when eaten raw (i.e., sliced in salads, grated in slaw, etc.), and it's good for juicing.

20 lb Bulk Beef Box
Birkeland Farm
Winter is coming, and it's time to fill your freezer. A great way to do so is with a 20-lb box of pastured beef from Birkeland farm - about 10 lbs ground beef and the rest roasts and steak, all for $200, or $10/lb. 

Fermented Hot Sauce
The Fermentista
This sweet and spicy hot sauce gets its tang not from vinegar, but from the lacto-fermentation that is the backbone of all of Sarah Pesout's wares. Her hot sauce is nicknamed "Punk Peppers", as all the peppers come from local grower Farm Punk Salads.
