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.

This week’s vendors:      B&G Produce, Bad River Pack, Beverly Duffel, Grady & Rayya’s Sweet Corn, Hanisch Farms, hummingbird, Mel & Me, Vogel Produce
