Farm Fresh & Local Produce 10/31/09

Halloween was the last regular farmers market day of the season for Clintonville and Worthington, and barring any visits to one of the winter markets, the last update until spring.

As much as I love my farmers market runs, by the end of October it gets harder and harder to drag myself out of bed and down to the markets when it’s still dark out. So while I know that I’m dealing with something that’s just about done, part of me is glad that I’ll actually be able to sleep in the next Saturday. Then, like this year, by New Year’s Eve I’m chomping at the bit for the first spring market of the season.

Not much left by this point, lots of repetition, like these apples that are sold at least a couple of different people at the different markets. We’re really pleased with the selection and quality of The Orchard of Bill and Vicky Thomas.

And I savored my last bag of salad of the season.

Got plenty of potatoes for storage, too.


Ditto with a diverse selection of winter squash, which I’m trying to work into my diet while it’s still good.


And of course, the ubiquitous cauliflower can’t be overlooked.


And super looking forward to the selection of veggies from Wayward Seed.


So, there’s your season – took me long enough to get all the entries posted, but I’m glad it gave me the opportunity to look back and remember. Are any of you hitting any of the winter markets? Any recommendations?
