I was so happy to see Muddy River in the market today. They lost 75% of their crop between Irene and the other hurricane, but have leeks, beets, onions,and other good things. They say they will be coming in for a while, but not for the winter.
I'm eating some excellent cranberry rye bread from a new bakery in the market. They have several small loaves and other choices. The stand is called Nordic Breads. I'm in real trouble now -- love their cranberry bread, Cayuga's ale bread, Our Daily Bread's sourdough, and Hot Bread Kitchen's challah! Forget the low carb diet, especially on Fridays!
If you're planning to freeze tomatoes and herbs for the winter, this seems to be the weekend to do it. Some farmers are expecting frost tonight. Meanwhile, there are plenty of good looking tomatoes at Norwich, Bodhitree, Miglorelli, and other stands. Samascott has good looking Italian plums and several stands including Bodhitree, Berried Treasures, and Norwich, have excellent beans. Berried Treasures has TriStars and elderberries and Cheerful Cherry has great tomatoes and grapes.
