Well, snow will do it. It’s amazing how one cold, windy, snowy day can transform me into Fall and Winter mode. I am now ready. Ready for roast pork with carrots and onions. Ready for winter squash ravioli with brown butter sage sauce. Ready for perfectly roasted chicken with mashed potatoes and pan gravy. Ready for lamb chops and roasted broccoli with garlic aioli.  I’m ready for all of that goodness and more.

Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, October 6 – 9am-noon

Wednesday was a long day. The wind was intense and we were working against time to harvest as many of the sensitive crops as possible before the frost last night. The farm hit a low of 25. We didn’t get everything we wanted harvested, but we did save a lot. The long day, the wind, and the cold took it out of us. Since it rained a good part of today anyway, we stayed home and processed some more items for winter. Roasted tomatoes, ground our smoked paprika peppers into a lovely powder, eggplant Parmesan in the freezer, dehydrated apples, applesauce, candied jalapenos, frozen okra to thicken stews and chili, chopped and frozen parsley, and fermenting red jalapenos for hot sauce. I love being in the kitchen with Matt and we feel so accomplished after a day like today. A few more days like this and we should be set until spring.

One of the items we saved last night was bell peppers. So, with very purchase on Saturday at B&G Produce, you will receive a free bell pepper!

You’ve been asking for it and she has been listening. Bab’s Bites ‘n Bones is bringing Grande Caramel Sauce and Clara’s Chocolate Ice Cream Topping to market this weekend!! Be sure to grab some before she sells out. Just a note, the caramel sauce is wonderful with fresh sliced apples.

This will be the last market for B&G Produce’s Basil Kale Pesto. It freezes well, so get a few and toss them into your freezer. You will love enjoying the fresh flavors of summer in a few months.

Also, BLC Ranch is back this weekend after a couple markets. The hat you all loved last weekend…Linda made it! Stop by and check out what else she has to offer. It’s quite possible I will be wearing my mitts this coming Saturday.

Lastly, Prairie Potters Master Gardeners will join us for market! Any questions about saving some of your plants during winter weather, ask them!

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, September 29 – 9am-noon

I kind of become attached to our plants during the season. On Monday, our last day at the farm before a short retreat in the Hills, I thanked the basil for doing so well this year. It’s a good thing I did because the plants took a hit Tuesday night and will probably get a bit more tonight. This time of year we struggle trying to decide whether to simply harvest all of something or wait and see. The complete harvest sometimes seems like a good idea. However, that limits how long we’ll have those items at market. On the other hand, if we wait and see…we risk losing the entire crop to frost. Uggh.

I am looking forward to some preserving this weekend. The last of our tomatoes will be roasted and turned into tomato sauce. I have a few eggplant from market last weekend that I plan to make and freeze some eggplant Parmesan. The last of the zucchini will go into a few batches of Zucchini Meatballs. Plus, we have a bunch of bell peppers which I will probably use in frozen bean and cheese burritos. It’s a lot of work, but I love effortlessly pulling these items from our freezer mid-Winter.

This will be the last market for B&G Produce’s Blue Cheese Walnut Pesto. It freezes well and we are making a bunch, so get a few and toss them into your freezer. You will thank us later. Also, this will be the only weekend of the season for Grilled Eggplant with Cilantro & Tamari Hummus. It is unique and delicious!

Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, September 22 – 9am-noon

I enjoy Fall. Hearty roast beef cooking for hours on low, slowly warming the house as it becomes unctuous and delicious. Surrounded by garden potatoes, celery, onions, and carrots, it highlights some of my garden favorites. But, am I ready to say goodbye to my summer lovelies? No. I am not ready for the fragrant smell of basil to abruptly end. I don’t want to stop seeing the yellow and green squash, sometimes growing faster than I can harvest them. I want to continue cherishing the okra plants as they reach for the sky. Yet, I can feel it in the air. The cool of Fall is very present. So, I guess it’s time to embrace change.

That being said, each weekend B&G Produce still has pesto is a gift. Be sure to start stocking up for winter. Buy some pesto and toss it in your freezer to bring forth summer thoughts in January.

Lauren with hummingbird is introducing a fun new item this week. Her PB Power Muffins. Full of oat flour, bananas, peanut butter, chocolate chips, and just a little brown sugar and honey. Bab’s will also have a new item…Lavender Orange Scones. Yum!

This will probably be the last market of the season for Vogel Produce. Be sure to stop by and thank them for joining us this season!

Hanisch Farms will also be taking holiday orders for turkey, ham, duck, geese, and all other meat products!

Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, September 15 – 9am-noon

I love finding new ways to use and preserve vegetables, especially veggies we have an abundance of in the garden…like zucchini. These Zucchini Meatballs are super amazing. So amazing, we (well, honestly mostly Matt) ate them over the course of two days. This weekend, I’m making a bunch more to freeze. Give them a try and let me know what you think.

I’m so excited this weekend to welcome back a vendor we haven’t seen in a while. Marcia from Sweet Peas is coming back to market this weekend! And, you are in for a treat because she is bringing her delicious caramel apples and monster cookies!! Please stop by and welcome Marcia back to the group.

Be sure to hop onto our Facebook page and comment on this week’s market post with your favorite fall meal using farmers’ market ingredients. You’ll be entered for a chance to win a dish towel set and bag of B&G Produce buttermilk biscuits!

Lastly, Hanisch Farms will be attending their monthly market next Saturday. If you want to pre-order or have a large order, please do so by Wednesday, September 19. Contact information is available on their website, www.hanischfarms.com.

Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, September 8 – 9am-noon

So, I must tell you what’s on my mind tonight. We name all of our plots at the garden. Some are not creative…Plot 1, 2, etc. Some literally define the plot…Barn Plot. And, some are named after experiences…Snake Butte. About that last one. Snake Butte came to be after we saw a couple large bull snakes in that plot. We named them Big Ben, Small Steve, and Huge Hefner. After not seeing the boys for a couple years, we found a 6 foot shed in the potatoes this season. And tonight, Matt was “snaked” in the okra. He only saw the end of it, but said it was a “decent” sized bull snake. We have to harvest tomatoes, potatoes, okra, and peppers in Snake Butte on Friday. I am not excited.

If I’m not startled to death, we’ll be at market Saturday morning where it’s definitely starting to look like Fall. Bab’s Bites ‘n Bones will have leaf-shaped dog biscuits, B&G Produce will have some delicious fall carrots and heirloom flat beans, Layton’s Produce will have a bunch of pears, and BLC Ranch will have their handmade warm wool wares.

This is the last weekend to take advantage of beef bundle savings at Nancy’s Nest. Just a couple bundles remain! See the details below.

Lastly, be sure to watch your home garden pumpkins! We are having a largest pumpkin contest on Saturday, October 27.

Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, September 1 – 9am-noon

Preserving for winter continues. Another 19 jars of roasted tomato sauce on the shelf. Soon, I’ll blend basil leaves with olive oil and freeze them in little muffin tins for use during the cold months. Tossing a cube into a pasta dish or brushing it on toasted bread will replicate the feeling of summer when we need it most. And, zucchini is getting shredded and frozen for winter casseroles and muffins. We also like to slice, grill, and freeze zucchini for easy veggie paninis (try these spread with some Blue Cheese Walnut Pesto) or an easy addition to pizza and pasta.

We still have some warmth before winter, so let’s enjoy another market Saturday! Sampling is a wonderful way to find your way around the market.  Bad River Pack will gladly have you try some of their delicious pemmican. Venner Farm will be offering tastes of her English cucumbers. Lauren at hummingbird usually offers samples of her scrumptious shortbread. And, B&G Produce offers samples of Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus, Original Hummus, and Blue Cheese Walnut Pesto.

You’ll find a couple sales as you stroll through market on Saturday. Nancy’s Nest is offering beef bundles through September 8. B&G Produce will have sales on basil and zucchini/summer squash. Basil is buy 2, get your 3rd container free. Buy 5 lbs or more of zucchini/summer squash and save over 30%.

Plus, and this is a big one…the Bloodwashed Band of SD will be back this weekend entertaining us with their live music. It’s possible a couple of the young members of Kingsway will also join them. And, as an added bonus, the Master Gardeners will have a booth this weekend. Take a moment to sit and sip your coffee, maybe snack on some cookies and a pear, all while enjoying live music and market friends. We look forward to seeing 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.
