Many of you came to last week’s Thanksgiving market, stocking up for the holidays. And what a lot there was to choose from, even at this time of the year. Since our market began, five years ago, farmers have become cleverer at extending the season, adept at growing new crops under cover, and canny about preserving summer’s flavors for the fall. Peachtree Circle Farm and Da Silva Farm have developed a mouth-watering array of sweet and savory pickles, and preserves made from produce they gr... Continue reading...
Bundle up! Every year Falmouth Farmers’ Market has a market just before Thanksgiving. It takes place on the preceding Tuesday, perfect for holiday shopping, and the hours are 11 am to 2pm. It’s an especially sweet market because it celebrates the late harvest of our farms, brings out a cheerful crowd, and is sure to include some festive surprises. Moonlight Rose will have beautiful soft woolens—scarves, socks, gloves and fingerless mittens -- made locally with wool from the Alpaca on ... Continue reading...
The mood was exceptionally cheerful at the market last week. Perhaps it was because the day was so bright and the sun so warm, it felt like summer. The RooBar chefs were shopping for market specials, showing off pictures of their dishes on their phone camera. Second-graders from Mullen-Hall School were on site for a lesson in market economics. “Our favorite place to run into one another!“ said one customer to another, spotting her friend at Peachtree Circle Farm’s table. So it comes as ... Continue reading...
May the autumn sunlight continue to warm the market along with the masses of cut sunflowers and huge planting-ready chrysanthemums for sale! Begin this week's food shopping with Harvest Hoots from Sirenetta: pure dark chocolate owls with painted silver eyes. Then pick up some streudel and biscotti from Pain D'Avignon, and pea tendril fettucine from Fromage a Trois, along with either their grilled artichoke- or shitake and crimini mushroom burrata. The drought in Spain this year has severely c... Continue reading...
The Official Autumn sun might be sliding lower across the sky, but the market is full of bright warm afternoon light and huge bright fall flowers. Allen Farms will continue to bring buckets full of giant sunflowers. They last for weeks, and then the centers can be braised, and finally the seeds eaten by humans or birds, to make more for next year. Christine's Flowers has huge pots of varicolored mums. Making off with two of them, one customer gloated, “Once they're p... Continue reading...
Giant sunflowers appeared at the market last week, a
surprise from Allen Farms. They created quite a buzz. A number of customers
nearly got free bees with their flowers (no worries – we gently shooed the
docile pollen-collecting bumble bees away.) Christine’s Flowers laid out masses
of potted mums. Harlequin squashes, Blue Hubbards, deep-red Kuri squashes and
Long Island Cheese Pumpkins basked in the sun next to late summer tomatoes,
corn, cucumbers and ...
The Cape Cod Fish Share will debut at the Falmouth Farmers’ Market today. Learn about this exciting sustainable local fishery, and how you can participate. You’ll be supporting local fishermen and snagging a weekly share of spanking fresh fish for your table, including varieties not commonly seen at the fishmonger. Some fish should be available to buy as well.
Farmers markets have the best of both worlds at this time of the year. The fruits and vegetables of late summer, and the first squashes, crisp apples and pears of fall. Here in Falmouth, you’ll also find sparkling jars of unusual jellies, pickles and vegetable preserves, capturing the essence of our summer. Plus slightly off-beat seasonal specialties like native Jerusalem artichokes (also known as sunchokes, available at Peachtree Circle Farm.) For a beautiful burst of seasonal color, we’...
