Things are slowing down, but there are still good finds in Union Square! Look carefully and you'll see heirloom tomatoes that are still pretty tasty, beautiful cauliflower varieties, interesting potatoes, and plenty of cut herbs. And PUMPKINS!!

Hot and sweet peppers at Eckerton and Oak Grove, sweet potatoes at Cherry Lane, Paffenroth, and Bodhitree, kale varieties all around the market, and pumpkins at Sycamore, Oak Grove, and Stokes.  Good looking heirloom tomatoes at Stokes, Berried Treasures, Eckerton, Keith,and other stands.
Locust Grove apples
 Tamarack, Rogowski, Bodhitree, Oak Grove, S&SO, Stokes, Paffenroth,  and others have still got a wide variety of produce.  Mountain Sweet Berry and Berried Treasures are in an area that had 31 degrees last night, so the chills are coming and the best advice is catch their unique vegetables while you can -- today, if possible.  Mountain Sweet Berry has the last of their shelled beans today, for instance.

Black walnuts at Paffenroth! Chestnuts at Eckerton!

Did a fast walk around the market and saw that it is pretty much a duplicate of last Saturday's, so check below for last week's report. I did go to pick up an order, but am a little under the weather, so I don't have pictures this week. I'll be back in the market next Saturday. I'm going to visit one of our farmers near Beacon next Wednesday, and am looking forward to it!

Seeya next week.
