Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, October 21 – 9am-noon

We hope you’ve been enjoying this lovely fall weather! We’ve been happily brewing the last jars of sun tea and watching the leaves dance their way to the ground. It’s been wonderful.

For those of you who missed out on B&G Produce’s last of the season potatoes…you’re in luck because Hanisch Farms has some available this weekend! Plus, they are having a sale on all pork products. And, don’t forget to get your holiday orders in for turkey, duck, goose, and ham. How awesome to be able to tell your family they are eating local meat for the holidays!

B&G Produce is introducing sweet potatoes and parsnips this weekend! Also, don’t forget to grab a Kakai pumpkin…it has the hulless pumpkin seeds, pepitas.

The awesome thing about produce this time of year is that is so easily preserves or holds for a long time in the fridge. Be sure to start stocking up, so you have local produce long after the market season ends on November 18.

Both B&G Produce and Hanisch Farms will also be at the East Pierre Landscaping Fall Festival from 1-5pm. Along with multiple other vendors, they will have a live band and a bar set up…plus complimentary cider and cookies, and fun activities for the kids!

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.
