Welcome to the New year-2019 promises to be lively and productive .
It's a great time to sample and enjoy some of the excellent preserved and premade foods we offer-vegetabels tasting of the garden, traditional and innovative preserves and pickles, syrups, jam. Frozen soups and entrees, meats fish and poultry are still plentiful. Dried beans and savory pastries, seafood burgers and a wealth of sausages are available. And we have beer!
Our bakers and cheesemakers often use this tme to pilot and experiment with changes and new products. Our craftspeople explore new ideas. All of our vendors turn to planning next years harvest and activities-so once again it's time for you to let them know what you want more of, what you'd like to try. These are the connections that make the market work for all of us. So let your voice be heard!
Also, i'd love to hear from you-recipes for market goods, favorites, things you would enjoy seeing here. Feedback is always welcome!

From our vendors-specials, s
Maine Saltwater Creations
has chili with a capital C cycling thru-last weeks 5 pepper pork rang a happy bell! Don't forget Filly's seafood burgers and soups are gluten free.
offers some mixes regularly, but often comes up with new blends to sample/try. They really do taste different depending on what's growing! Sample fearlessly, where else can you try red vein sorrel, Sichleung, purple radish. Good News is they last up to a week in the cool part of the fridge.
Hawthorne and Thistle
is waiting for the new lambs, due in 6 or 8 weeks. But Stephanie has lovely natural and dyed wool available, as well as some socks, baby clothes,and those sweet mistletoe (save for next year) all knit up.
brighten your winter project with sunny wool from Hawthorne and Thistle
continues with spectacular fresh and frozen cranberries. Try this versatile fruit in desserts, salads, with fresh yogurt and maple syrup. He also has some golden raspberry jam, very flavorful, with a lovely glow.
Kelley Brothers Beef
has a Prime Rib special: $13.99 a pound. This is a great deal for excellent beef; and nice to have in the freezer for that unexpected special occasion!
has been chasing down celeriac-at a premium this year-and finally got enough for his Celeri-rav, which shreds and blends it with fresh carrots. Very refreshing with rich winter stews. He also has some new dai chi (daikon based kimchee) that will give you quite a fiery boost!
New at Tarbox, Sasanoa, a beer from their just launched brewery
is offering some fine feta and hopes to bring in fresh ricotta this week-great on pizza-try with feta chive and garlic sausage from pine tree and sliced crimini from
on a winter pizza.
Nothing quite as buttery and light as those whole wheat croissants at
-they smile at preserves and cheese, absolutely dance in your mouth stuffed with fresh turkey salad from
Tree. Add some mesclun from
just cause you can.
Sweet pickle relish spotted at
Pleasant Pond Orchard
-it is excellent-Larry says he'll have some more and maybe a batch of his wife's superior jams too. Please do enjoy them..
Tasty mushrooms of all sorts at Oyster Creek-these great in oriental soups and stir fries
has 2 sizes of it's prebaked focaccia ready-just add some cheese, herbs, a bit of oil. and let it do 20 minutes at 350. Chewy and remarkably full of good bread taste! nice for the kids-to make their own.
Worried about ALL THOSE BUGS AND VIRUSES THIS TIME OF YEAR? Consult with Anna at
on the right tea or tincture to help keep your body-and spirit-balanced and healthy.. Love the Silver Ion for virals, infections etc.
has some very nice 2 yr old Olde Shiretown ready to go. Try their market cheese for nice texture and good "cheesiness", it's a go to in my kitchen for many traditional dishes.
Liz Starr will be here this week to share her excellent tunes and nimble fingering at the start of the year. Come by and listen
