Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, September 30 – 9am-noon

Many of you have asked how many weeks we have left this season. Well, it’s quite a few! Our last market is November 18, the Saturday before Thanksgiving. You still have plenty of time to stock up on items for winter! Matt and I transplanted a bunch of mini romaine and planted some radish and turnips yesterday in hopes to have them for the last couple weeks of market. Just think…local lettuce as part of your Thanksgiving meal!

Speaking of Thanksgiving and Fall, we have everything you need to get you in the mood for cool weather and upcoming holidays. Warm spiced apple cider at Sunshine Coffee is an excellent way to start your Saturday morning. Halloween décor from Beverly Duffel and a few gourds from B&G Produce. Grab an apple pie from Nancy’s Nest and some Spiced Winter Squash Hummus from B&G Produce.

And for your afternoon snacks, stop by Bad River Pack. They are back!!! We’ve missed Don and Mary, but they are joining us this weekend with freshly made products. I’m a big fan of their beef jerky.

One more thing and I hate to even mention it, but…we’re getting close to the end of tomato season. Take advantage of fresh garden tomatoes while they are available. Matt and I roast up a bunch of tomatoes for tomato sauce throughout the winter months and make Gnocchi De La Mama. I highly recommend this dish…like, a lot.

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.

Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, September 23 – 9am-noon

As I write this today, my window is open letting the warm breeze flow through. And even though it’s a nice, warm day, I can see Fall. The shrubs in our backyard are starting to turn crimson as are the apples on our tree. Our basil has slowed down to a crawl, indicating cool weather ahead. And, the Deadon cabbage in one of our front yard raised beds has visibly started to turn darker purple, letting us know it is enjoying the cool evenings.

One of my favorite cool weather meals is this Lamb & Kale Stew. The spices, especially the garam masala (available at Dakotamart), make the whole house smell amazing and inviting. Pick up some ground lamb or ground beef, either work well, from Hanisch Farms. Grab some kale from B&G Produce. And then grab a winter squash from either of us. This will be a perfect weekend to let this stew simmer on your stove while you curl up with a book, wrapped in your BLC Ranch wool sweater, and lounge on the couch. Finish off your meal with an apple pie from Nancy’s Nest. Warm it in the oven for a bit. Then enjoy her amazingly flaky crust and sweet apple filling.

Another signal Fall is quickly approaching…this is the last weekend for B&G Produce’s Blue Cheese Walnut Pesto. Get it Saturday because it won’t be available again until next summer!

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.

Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, September 16 – 9am-noon


Despite the hot weather we’ve had this week, Fall is in the air. We can see the slight changes in the trees, grass, and crops on our daily drive to the farm. We can feel it in the morning when we step outside. And, our taste buds are starting to crave hearty meals. Fall is definitely on its way.  Some of my favorite Fall meals include my homemade roasted tomato sauce. Check out how easy it is in our new blog post.

We have a new vendor to our Saturday morning line up. You’ve seen Nancy’s Nest at the Fort Pierre market and now she’s joining our Saturday crew. And for her first morning with us, she’s offering seven different flavors of organic muffins!

Fort Pierre Bicentennial Farmers’ Market – Tuesday, September 12 – 5pm-until at least 7pm

This is our last Tuesday night market and it’s going to be a great one!! This is “Turkey Races Night” at market with fun games and activities, Pierre Streetmasters are back showing off their cool cars, the Kiwanis Club is holding a fundraising meal to support the Community Youth Involved center, live music by the Blood Washed Band of South Dakota, and wagon rides by the Cowans! Plus, the farmers’ market vendors have some amazing items for your week ahead!

Start your stroll through market with a refreshing apple cider from Sunshine Coffee. Then head on over to Beverly’s booth and check out her Halloween décor. Follow that with a stop at the Fort Pierre Bicentennial Booth. Be sure to check out their cookbook. Next, stop at BLC Ranch to peruse their beautiful handmade wool items. Perhaps a new cowl?

Now tame your sweet tooth with a stop at Nancy’s Nest for a cherry pie or chocolate rugelach. Moving on to Venner Farm, you need the pecan sandies (ok, I need them) and some of her apple strudel bars. Balance that sweet tooth with some savory rosemary gruyere bread and blue cheese walnut pesto from B&G Produce. Of course, be sure to include some super fresh vegetables from B&G Produce and Venner Farm.

After some games and the fundraising meal, you should be ready to head home for the evening and relax.

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

Matt and I spent the night in our camper at the farm earlier this week. We get started a lot faster on harvest mornings if we simply wake up at the farm. I made sure my BLC Ranch wool hat was with me and I was happy to have it on that 45 degree morning, while harvesting mini romaine lettuce!

Vendors have a few new items this week. Bab’s is introducing a Strawberry, Ginger, & Chia Seed Scone. Like all of her baked goods, these are sure to quickly disappear, so stop her booth early. Along with a new Pop Tart flavor (blueberry!!), Haines Homestead is also offering a Hair Rinse with her Bath & Body products. And B&G Produce will have Rustic Millet bread made with local millet.

Be sure to make a stop at Beverly’s booth to check out her cute Halloween décor before finishing your market stroll. Oh, and just in case you need this…B&G Produce has White Chocolate Lime biscuits and Blue Cheese Walnut Pesto this week.

If any of you out there need recipe ideas for eggplant, give these a try!

Lastly, we will also have an SD Anti-Corruption Amendment petition signing booth this weekend. Charlene Lund is a volunteer circulating the petition, which is an amendment to the SD Constitution, changing campaign finance and lobbying laws. If you’re not sure what this is about, she will have informational handouts as 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.

Only two more Tuesday night markets this season! Both are bound to be great markets, not to be missed. Rotary has a delicious fundraising meal planned including one of my favorites, carnitas! For only a $10 donation ($5 for kids), this meal is a bargain (more information below)!! Plus, wagon rides again this week and a plethora of farmers’ market vendors!!

The weather should have just a chill on it for our market evening. What a great time to start thinking about Halloween and Beverly has some cute decorations just for you! Or, perhaps you need a new wool hat or cowl. If BLC Ranch doesn’t have your size, Linda will create a custom item to perfectly fit you!

Grab a latte from Sunshine Coffee to warm you up and then stroll over to B&G Produce for some Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus and fresh produce!

After you enjoy the fundraising dinner by Rotary, stop by Nancy’s Nest for some brownies and Venner Farm for a little apple crisp! Then, be sure to check out the energy bars at Haines Homestead. Let me just say…Almond Joy, yes please!

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.

Stop by her adorable Scamp and check out the merchandise she has to offer. Our second vendor is BLC Ranch. You may have seen Ben and Linda at our Tuesday night market in Fort Pierre. They are now joining us on Saturday mornings. Matt and I just picked up our custom orders of wool hats, cowls, and I also picked up some fingerless mitts. They will be awesome when cooler weather hits.
