Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, September 14 – 9am-noon

Well, if this weather doesn’t have you feeling the fall vibes, I don’t know what will. The leaves in our tree belt are starting to turn, the days are visibly shorter, and mornings have a chill in the air. In my book, this is the perfect time for beef roast, baked with lots of fall vegetables.

We’re lucky to have Dakota Cuban back again this weekend. If you missed their burritos last week, be sure to stop down Saturday morning. We’ve fallen in love with their bacon burritos.

Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, September 7 – 9am-noon

I missed you all last week while I was working at the State Fair! It’s definitely an exhausting season, being committed to 26 Saturdays in a row. But, those Saturdays are when we all come together. First, as the vendors start arriving for set up, working together to put up the various market booths like the Market Manager and customer sitting area, before setting up their own tents. Joking about how tired we are from the previous night of prep. Then, watching customers start to roll in before the 9am bell. Many times Karen will be there with her green and white check basket. Mike might be peeking around near the bags of granola. And, Mick will be wandering to find the vendor who has eggs that morning. The bell rings at 9am and we all fall into our roles. Chatting with all of you about the Padron peppers you fried up last week, the eggplant dish you plan to make this weekend, and how your week was at work…this has been our Saturday routine for the last four months. Weather permitting, we’ll have two more months ahead. Glorious…because we have a fun Saturday ahead.

Dakota Cuban is back with their delicious breakfast burritos. You can bet we will be in line as soon as possible. Kids can paint their own “Happy Fall” sun catchers. Right Turn will have their student and teacher art for free-will donation. We will have two, that’s right two, honey vendors this weekend! And, we’ll have some fruit! Layton’s Produce will have grapes, pears, watermelon, and apples!! Probably will want to grab some pour over coffee, if we have a few sprinkles in the morning. Might be a good morning to have a cute umbrella with you.

As a market, we accept credit cards and EBT. Shop vendors who accept cc/EBT and pay once before you leave! Stop at the Market Manager booth to start the process and have fun shopping.

Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, August 24 – 9am-noon

Even though it’s only August, the feel of fall is in the air. Some of my favorite vegetables ripen this time of year. This weekend, we’ll have our first leeks of the season. If you’ve never had a leek before, they are in the onion family. Their flavor is mild, for an onion, and can be used nearly everywhere a regular onion is used. Imagine this, if you will…caramelized onion, bacon, blue cheese pizza with garlic fermented honey brushed on the crust as soon as it comes out of the oven. I’ll just leave this right here.

Our friend, Antonio, at Gallo’s will be open Saturday morning (beginning at 6am!) serving breakfast burritos. Believe me when I say they are delicious. So, get a burrito downtown Pierre, stop at hummingbird to grab a beverage, and then sit down at one of the customer tables we have set up to enjoy. We’ll be ready to help with your weekly market items after your bellies are full.

As a market, we accept credit cards and EBT. Shop vendors who accept cc/EBT and pay once before you leave! Stop at the Market Manager booth to start the process and have fun shopping.

Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, August 17 – 9am-noon

Another weekend means another Sunday afternoon of meal prep and winter preserving. We are almost out of the sweet corn we processed last summer, so it’s quite possible I will be bagging up some sweet kernels this weekend. If we have extra basil, I’ll make some basil oil by simply blending olive oil and basil to a barely pourable consistency into mini muffin tins. A quick freeze on a sheet tray and they all get tossed into a freezer bag together until a cold winter night hits and we want some fresh basil stirred into our Bolognese sauce. You can ask Matt and he will probably agree that I get giddy over preserving food for cool months. I love putting these items into the freezer and knowing I will still be able to eat local vegetables when it’s 10 degrees. I know! I know! Don’t talk about cold weather. Fair enough. Let’s enjoy the rest of this summer. Oh, and welcome back to school students and teachers!

Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, August 10 – 9am-noon

Many of you have asked if we were affected by the hail storm Tuesday. We were, but luckily the farm was right on the edge. Did we have loss? Yes. Could it have been much worse? Definitely, yes. So, we’re thankful for the relatively minimal damage. This was a rough week for farmers in the area, though. If they were lucky enough to get crops in this spring, some of them lost everything on Tuesday evening. I grew up a farmer’s daughter. Watching the large hail stones hit the ground minute after minute, stress levels increasing with each of those passing minutes. I have no doubt, many of those farmers were out as soon as the storm passed, assessing damages. These are some of the most dedicated and hardest workers around. Next time you see a farmer, whether small or large-scale, please thank them for what they do.

Well…we had a classic summer meal last night. Sweet corn and BLT’s. Honestly, though, does it get any better? If you need help with that question, the answer is “no”. It does not get any better. I may have that same meal again tonight. And, tomorrow. And, the next day. Repeat.

You will be so happy, because we will have local honey again this weekend! Pfeifer Beekeepers, a new vendor, will be at market with honey. Get yours before it sells out!

We are excited to welcome back the Right Turn this weekend. If you missed them last weekend, be sure to check out their booth this Saturday. They are showcasing artwork created by students and staff. Cards and prints will be available with donations to support their education programs. Staff will be available to provide information about upcoming classes and answer questions.

Lastly, this weekend is Crazy Days downtown. Our friend, Antonio, at Gallo’s will be set up beginning at 8am with breakfast burritos and other delicious items! Brewbirds coffee truck will be set up, pony rides, face painting, and a balloon artist!

As a market, we accept credit cards and EBT. Shop vendors who accept cc/EBT and pay once before you leave! Stop at the Market Manager booth to start the process and have fun shopping.
