San Marzano, Federale, Purple Cherokee, all heirloom tomatoes!

Seize the day! Great tomatoes are to be had all over the market, but a frost could come at any time. Cherry Lane, Mountain Sweet Berry, Stokes, Norwich, Oak Grove, Sycamore, and others have excellent tomatoes, but the weather is changing. If you freeze tomatoes or make sauce for the freezer, now's the time.

Buzzard Crest is here with luscious grapes and grape juices. Some varieties will only be here for another week! Try the Jupiters! Quattro's has all kinds of poultry, eggs, and sausages. Violet Hill has Belle Rouge chickens and parts. Ronnybrook DOESN'T HAVE BUTTER OR CREME FRAICHE today.

Eckerton and Oak Grove have wonderful selections of hot peppers and Sycamore has corn, sweet peppers, and other produce. Stokes, Paffenroth, Ryder, Gorzynski, and others have cut herbs and Oak Grove has beautiful herb plants. Stokes, Sycamore, and others have sugar pumpkins and Paffenroth, Oak Grove, Stokes, and others have winter squashes. Norwich has all of those AND summer squash, beans, eggplants, and other goodies.

All of the usual suspects are here, except for Silver Heights (gone until next year). Violet Hill has gorgeous wild mushrooms and Bulich has beautiful cultivated ones. Cato is here with tasty cheeses and Three Corner Field Farm has cheeses, yogurts, and lamb cuts. Beth's Farm Kitchen has their excellent preserves and chutneys. Cayuga has lovely ale bread, whole wheat loaves, and beans.
