BROOKSIDE - The Community Farmers Market at Brookside (KCMO) - for Market Day (SATURDAYS)

Greetings Market Friends!

We're glad to welcome Bear Creek back this week, and hope you can join us during this incredible weather.

From our vendors:

From Bear Creek Farms

We are back - hope last Saturday was lovely for you all!

What a week this has been - fall is definately here, though 42 degrees August 30th night was somewhat of a surprise! And here it is Wednesday mornig - it's pouring rain and I am freezing to death. I checked the Farmers' Almanac for this winter and it said - "Numbingly cold and lots of snow". Now with the disasters of this summer I have been longing for fall (maybe even frost!), but the words "numbingly cold" just don't sound all that good! On the upside - the national weather folks are calling for a warm, dry winter. Hmmm....

So - at market we'll have lots of lovely veggies - just right for grilling - or, if it stays this cold - great for hot soups or stews. There will be squash - both winter and summer -eggplant, kale and chard, mustard greens - perfect for a spicy salad, okra, peppers of every color and size, potatoes and onions, cabbage, tons of tomatoes, and.... CORN - lovely and sweet, a real fall treat! (This is assuming that the coons don't get it first!)

Thanks to all that sent emails asking if we are all ok. What amazing people all of our customers and friends are! We were back in Indiana - my step-mom has appendix cancer. I thought that at least your appendix was safe, but oh no - there are actually five kinds of appendix cancer! Who knew!?

So, well dressed in our woolies, we'll see you all this Saturday!

From the Kansas City Community Farm

So the end of summer is nearing, a beautiful labor day weekend ahead. Here at the farm the gears are shifting slowly, the rhythm is slowing down a bit and the sounds of activity, growth and emergence have turned into a quieter hum. By this time each season, everybody in the crew is well-trained and there's much less need for communication around how to seed, plant, harvest, wash, etc. With the slow-down, some kind of space opens up for us to see the whole a little better, the small farm system, the people and plants and animals that comprise it, the interconnectedness and the constant change. The next couple of months are a precious time of year for farmers, before the deep freeze, and our harvest embodies some of this end-of-summer richness. If you're like me, you can taste it. Savor it.

A lot of beautiful variety on our tables this week: More TOMATOES of all sizes, colors and shapes. The harvests are getting slimmer, though... A great round of FILET and TRI-COLOR BEANS as well as SUMMER SQUASH, CUCUMBERS, EGGPLANT and BELL PEPPERS (the peppers turn wonderful dark red, orange and yellow this time of year... some look like a sunset.. taste them by taking a big bite right out of one!). There'll be more OKRA and a new Asian cucurbit called "FUZZY GOURD" (mix between a cucumber, lemon and summer squash... it's part of a vegetable trial so quantities of this treat are limited!). Also several varieties of WINTER SQUASH and root veggies including BEETS, CARROTS, some RADISHES, plus several types of POTATOES. And from the alliums family, LEEKS, ONIONS, GARLIC and SCALLIONS; fresh-cut herbs to round it off, including great bunches of BASIL.

Fill your tummy with this wonderful fare and enjoy the big weekend.

Thanks for your support.

Hello Brookside friends,

We got done with Grandmas' big move and she is partially unpacked and settled. I think she has made friends with half the town already (all 400) and she will know the rest by the end of next week. I do stand corrected though,Grandma never lived in the country just the suburbs of Independence and her parents raised chicks, chickens, eggs and sold feed there. I hope she likes all the quiet. Josiah will see her everyday twice a day since he checks on his animals that often.
Our burritos this week will have Josiahs' farm fresh eggs,potatoes,squash,onions,swiss chard and farm fresh eggs. Our meat burritos will have Benedict Builders sausage added to them. Quiches,muffins,breads,cinnamon rolls,cookies and scones will also be available. Bethany will have the Pumpkin rolls and Cherry Chocolate chip bread made for Saturday. The pumpkin rolls go fast so I hope she makes enough.


Well, enjoy the day and come by and see us,

Luke,Chris and Kathy

Green Dirt Farm

Hello all,


Jacque will be attending the market for me this week while I take my daughter to college. For those of you who missed getting some of our new cheese, "Queen of the Prairie," last week, we will be coming with twice as much this week (but do try to come early, just in case!)
We will have plenty of lamb this week, too. Though, no sausage yet, sorry.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Sarah
