Fort Pierre Bicentennial Farmers’ Market – Tuesday, August 1 – 5pm-at least 7pm

Another awesome Tuesday night ahead. Mary House is hosting a fundraising dinner including sloppy joes, chips, and a cupcake for only $5! Sounds like we know what’s for dinner.

Start your evening right by grabbing a cool beverage from Sunshine Coffee. I really enjoyed their iced peach tea last week.

Boom Shack Studio is back with her beautiful lilies. They smelled so amazing last time!

B&G Produce has their famous Blue Cheese Walnut Pesto available along with a special hummus, Grilled Eggplant with Cilantro & Tamari. This pairs amazingly well with pan-fried pita bread.

Venner Farm is featuring crisps and cobblers this week. I tried their Cherry Berry for breakfast one day last week and it was fantastic!

BLC Ranch is back this week. Linda makes the most gorgeous ponchos I’ve ever seen. And, I know it’s still warm right now, but these will keep you warm this winter.

Beverly Duffel will have her painted pavers. If you missed her at the Saturday market, stop by and see her Tuesday night!

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, July 29 – 9am-noon

Another crazy busy week and we’re at the end of July! It’s hard to believe how quickly this month has flown by, especially considering each of those scorching hot days felt like eternity. But, it’s nearly over and we’ll move into August.

Bad River Pack is swinging by on Saturday before heading to Sturgis for the Rally. Be sure to pick up your favorites while they are in town. We will be grabbing up a few packages of their flavorful and tender beef jerky!

With this being the fifth weekend of the month, B&G Produce is offering a couple special items only available during a month with a fifth Saturday! Debby is baking Fig & Fennel rustic bread. Lindy prepared Strawberry Rose Water Buttermilk Biscuits with Rose Water Glaze. Matt made a new hummus based off of a side dish he made in San Diego last year, Grilled Eggplant with Cilantro & Tamari. You won’t see these again until the end of September, so get them Saturday!

If any of you wondered what my decision was on Tuesday night…whether to get iced tea or lavender lemonade…we ended up getting one of each! Lyndsey made some peach tea for the evening market and it was outstanding! Decisions again this weekend.

Bab’s Bites ‘n Bones is bringing a couple flavors of hand pies this weekend. One, in particular, sounds amazing…Blueberry Lemon Basil. Wow. Can’t wait to get my hand on one of those!!

Beverly is here this weekend with her cute painted pavers. We’ve bought a couple that look like kitties we have. Too cute in our garden.

And lastly, many of you have asked about a visit to our farm. Well, if you’re free Saturday night, this might be a good opportunity to see the farm and learn about GOAL (Greater Oahe Action League). GOAL is a part of Dakota Rural Action and has been very supportive of the local farmers’ markets as well as promoting local food. Here is more information, if you are interested.

Market – Tuesday, July 25 – 5pm-at least 7pm

We have a great Tuesday ahead! American Legion Post 20 is having a fundraising dinner, featuring grilled items and cold beverages. Kids, ages 4 to 12, can participate in a Pedal Pull Competition at 6pm with potential to participate at the state level. Pierre StreetMasters will have some of their swanky cars on display. The Exchange Club will be holding a root beer float fundraiser. And, don’t forget the sunset cruise on none other than The Sunset paddle boat. See more information below under “Other Activities & Food…”

Also, this week the Fort Pierre Bicentennial Booth will be setting up with the Capital City Farmers’ Market vendors. Stop by and check out all the cool memorabilia available!

B&G Produce will have samples of their delicious hummus and pesto. Stop by and try one or all three flavors!

Nancy’s Nest is introducing her Beet Feta Cheese Muffins with Orange Streusel this week. Beets, feta, and orange are a match made in heaven, so these are bound to be amazing!

This is your last chance to get 25% off BLC Ranch wool items. I know it’s hot and it’s hard to think about wearing wool, BUT this is an excellent time to think ahead for Christmas or birthday gifts!

Venner Farm if offering their Breakfast Cookies again this week. I got a chance to try them last week and they are wonderful. One bite is lovely chocolate and then the next is sweet dried fruit. I enjoyed them for dessert as well as dunked into my morning coffee.

Speaking of coffee, this is the big question of the week. Do I get Lavender Lemonade again or try some of the organic iced tea Lyndsey of Sunshine Coffee has been talking about for weeks now? I will have to ponder this a little longer, but not too long because they tend to sell out! Decisions.

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.

Market – Saturday, July 22 – 9am-noon

We have had a busy week thus far! Sunday was another hot day at the farm, cultivating tomatoes and peppers. Monday, we were up at 5am to make granola, pesto, and hummus. Then, to the farm which was so very hot. We did as much as we could, but tried to save energy. Tuesday, we were up before sunrise to start harvesting and then to the Ft Pierre Bicentennial Farmers’ Market at 5pm. Wednesday, we finally had a cool enough day to transplant some scallions, fennel, and lettuce which was awesome. Today, we were up at 5am to make granola, pesto, and hummus and then to the farm for a fun interview with PBS for their Savor Dakota show with MJ Adams. Tonight, we are speaking at the One Book SD Author Tour at the Ramkota before J Ryan Stradel talks about his book, Kitchens of the Great Midwest. Tomorrow morning, we’ll be up before sunrise to beat the heat and harvest for market Saturday morning. And then, we’ll do it all again next week. This is our summer and although we’re exhausted, we are loving it!

Bring your fuzzy wuzzy dogs this weekend because Bab’s will be there with her tasty dog biscuits! Our farm dog, Sam, happily wags his tail and finds a shady spot to enjoy his biscuits.

Sunshine Coffee is coming prepared with Lavender Lemonade featuring B&G Produce lavender. If you didn’t get one before they ran out Tuesday night, be sure to arrive early on Saturday. You do not want to miss these hand-squeezed cups of deliciousness.

B&G Produce is debuting their first garlic and green beans of the season. We know how much you all love them both! Plus, White Chocolate Blueberry bread is back. If you haven’t made French toast with this yet, you are missing out!

Market – Tuesday, July 18

Many thanks to everyone who joined us last week for our first Tuesday night Fort Pierre Bicentennial Farmers’ Market. We hope you’ll join us this week as well! The Fire Department will have their Safety Town trailer, so be sure to bring your kids!

Sunshine Coffee is offering an absolutely amazing homemade lavender lemonade featuring organic lemons and B&G Produce lavender. Matt and I each had two on Saturday and could have sucked down more, but they sold out. We’ll be in line Tuesday night.

B&G Produce is bringing their delicious hummus and pesto to market this week. Be sure to ask for a sample! Plus, new red potatoes! If you’ve never had a home grown potato, you are missing out. And, for those of you still struggling to love kale, try this Caesar salad recipe. We think you’ll love it to the last bite.

BLC Ranch is offering 25% off all their hand-knit products through the end of July. You should check out Linda’s Baby Gagas. They are so flippin’ adorable!

Denise of Venner Farm is bringing her lemon poppy seed bread. I LOVE this bread. It is so moist and the icing is just a little tart. It is so good. So good.

Any of you who are omitting gluten, Nancy’s Nest is bringing gluten free brownies to market!!

Market – Saturday, July 15

We have thoroughly savored these last couple days of warm, not horribly hot, weather. The plants in the garden have absolutely loved it as well, even though it appears to be short-lived. Back to heat tomorrow. That’s ok, because we’ve got plenty of cool items for you at market. See what I did there?

Hanisch Farms is joining us this weekend with all of their meat items, farm fresh eggs, and vegetables. Plus, roaster chickens and brats are back in stock! Woohoo!

Sunshine Coffee will get a little visit from me this weekend. I need another Lindy. You may think I’m kidding, but I get one every…single…time.

B&G Produce will have a few, and I mean just a few, mini romaine lettuce this weekend. We know you love them. Also, we will introduce our new Blue Cheese Walnut Pesto. Doesn’t it just sound amazing? Plus, it’s kind of like you have your own personal chef, right? Since Matt is making it for you?

If you have a chance, we’d love to see you at the One Book SD Author Tour on Thursday, July 20 at the Ramkota in Pierre. Matt and I will have a 30 minute presentation talking about our transition from corporate restaurant life into our new garden life. Then, J Ryan Stradal, author or Kitchens of the Great Midwest will talk about his book. This was a fun read for me. Not only did it center around food as a part of our lives, but it talked about places in the Midwest, including Pierre. If that isn’t enough to convince you to attend, before the presentations there will be some hors d’ oeuvres and cash bar. Tickets are $25 and available at Prairie Pages. Here’s some more information.

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.

Market – Tuesday, July 11

Welcome to the first email for our Fort Pierre Bicentennial Farmers’ Market! Every week I will include a list of the Capital City Farmers’ Market vendors and what they will bring. Then, at the bottom of the list, will be a section called “Other Activities & Food…” This will be where I’ll include things like the bouncy houses, cruise on The Sunset, fundraiser meals, and other activities for you and your family. Location and time of market are at the bottom of this information.

We would like to welcome Nancy’s Nest, BLC Ranch, and Boom Shack Studio to market! Nancy of Nancy’s Nest will have organic baked goods and farm fresh eggs. Ben and Linda of BLC Ranch have Icelandic wool and knit items. Jill Kokesh of Boom Shack Studio has flowers and craft items. Please stop by and welcome them to market!

Then, make a beeline for Sunshine Coffee and pick up an iced coffee for your stroll downtown. Don’t want the caffeine? No problem. They offer decaffeinated coffee!

B&G Produce is bringing their first leeks of the season! It’s too hot for potato leek soup, but grilled leeks with a bit of butter and Parmesan is something to savor.

Love choke cherry syrup? Pick up some choke cherries from Venner Farm and cook up a batch this week for delicious pancakes this weekend!

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.
