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

Fall swiftly ushers out flip flops, warm weather crops (see B&G Produce’s “frost” sale below), BLTs, and enjoying sangria while watching a beautiful sunset. At the same time, it welcomes cooler weather (again…see B&G Produce’s “frost” sale), pumpkin spiced baked goods, cozy sweaters (BLC has amazing items), hearty stews, and sitting by the fireplace. We have hit Fall…or Fall has hit us. Either way, be sure to enjoy the bounty offered to you this weekend.

There are many new items this weekend! Be sure to check out Bad River Pack’s funky wool pillows. I was gifted one last week and it is adorable! Also, definitely pick up some Flom Kuchen. It is crunchy, salty, and lovely.

Be sure to stop at B&G Produce to pick up some Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus as this will be the last weekend to get it this season! B&G Produce is also holding some “frost” sales this weekend. You’ll find amazing prices on eggplant, bell peppers, jalapenos. Try these eggplant recipes, if you need some ideas. Bell peppers can simply be chopped and frozen, sautéed and frozen for fajita peppers, or try making stuffed peppers and freezing them for easy weeknight meals. And, jalapenos…if you haven’t made cream cheese stuffed bacon wrapped jalapenos, you haven’t lived. Plus, they freeze amazingly well.

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