It’s fall, and we’re still going to the Downtown Farmer’s Market

I believe this is the first time we’ve attended a Cedar City Farmer’s Market in the fall for about 5 years (as in our very first year).

The weather has been good to us this year. We’ve also gotten our act together a little better and planted on time, and provided appropriate protection. That means we’ve got fall vegetables today.

For the first time ever, we have super sweet pie pumpkins. These little gems are just right for making a fresh Pumpkin Pie. Stored in a cool place, you should be able to keep them (and they’ll sweeten even more) for a month or so.

Bev has found an awesome head of cauliflower… first one there could get this humongous veggie for a mere $5 bucks. I just weighed it on our bathroom scale and it came in at a whopping 6.4 lbs. I’m dreaming of cauliflower soup.

New veggies at the Downtown Farmer’s Market

This week we’re adding carrots, head lettuce and potatoes to the veggies we have been bringing to the market.

Come to the booth for our daily specials… no, I’m not going to tell you hear, you’ll have to tell me you saw this post.

I can tell you about one special we have this week… buy one zucchini and get two garlic heads for free.

Remember, the farmer’s market starts promptly at 4PM. We have folks standing in line to buy the veggies they like best. Last week a fellow really wanted spinach. He came by while we were still setting up, and we couldn’t sell to him (market rules). He came back at 4 but decided to talk with Cindy about her aquaponics. By the time he was ready to buy, I’d sold everything he wanted… Moral of the story… You snooze, dilly-dally,

From A (arugula) to Z (zucchini) we’re bringing green stuff to the Cedar City Downtown Farmer’s Market today.

In the herb department, we’ve got Genovese, Lemon. Cinnamon, Sweet and Thai basil, as well as Texas Tarragon, Oregano, Lemon Thyme, Rosemary, Curly Parsley, and Chinese Chives.

That reminds me… do you know the difference between Chinese (garlic) chives and the French (onion) chives? Stop by the Farmer’s Market and I’ll explain it to you.

In the lettuce (and salad fixings) department, we have arugula, black Simpson leaf, and Salad bowl.

Mom is sending several dozen of her Huge Farm Fresh Brown Eggs. At $3.50 per dozen, you get eggs that were lovingly gathered from directly under the hens within minutes of laying. Yes, we have roosters in with the hens,
