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

Greetings Market Friends!

The weather continues to amaze, the cool weather has brought tasty fall veggies and we'll have music by percussionist Dustin Mott. Sounds like a lovely Saturday to me - hope to see you all at market, toes-a-tappin'.

From our vendors:

Bread of Life Bakery

Hello Market Friends,

This has been a nice and cool week. Luke and Chris had a busy week keeping the lawns mowed for their lawn care business. School also fills up their time so Luke is staying out of trouble for the time being.

We will have organic fair trade coffee from Puddin Head available, along with scones, pumpkin muffins,cookies honey pecan rolls, breakfast burritos, meat and vegetarian,and Quiches.

We have our usual whole grain breads made with freshly ground organic whole grains so you get a good source of fiber and other nutrients such as selenium,potassium and magnesium. The refined flours are low in fiber and are still missing some nutrients and minerals since they only add back a few in the enriched flours. Whole grains are healthier and truly the staff of life.

Come by and see Luke and Chris,


It’s Spring again all over again, at least as it comes to our farm’s market offerings. We’ll bring items that we haven’t had since May including spinach, salad mix, arugula and microgreens. Our root crops have also benefitted from plenty of rain and cooler nights. Detroit Dark Red beets are better than ever. Baby turnips are back and are very cute. Carrots are yellow and outstanding when braised with your choice of decadent sauce (i.e. butter). Sweet potatoes are what I’ve been waiting for all season and we’ll gladly share some with you. Winter squash varieties are plentiful including butternut, my personal favorite, carnival and acorn. Summer is not quite over yet so we’ll have perfect zucchini and patty pan squash. If you haven’t taken the chance yet…folks who have tried the patty pan rave and claim it their favorite. September is the month of taking chances, you know. Our big and little red, ripe sweet peppers are great cooked or uncooked any way you look at it. Okra. Four letters say it all. Hot peppers need only three letters. H…O…T. Scallions and leeks. Green beans and cucumbers. Get your eggplant now as this cool weather does not agree with the plants. Tomatoes are holding on and the vines are producing big wonders. We’ll bring herbs of many kinds…lemongrass, basil, rosemary and sage to name just a couple. We’ll have other greens as well. Malabar spinach, which has sustained us through the summer and continues to be Katherine’s new favorite, and sweet potato greens. We’ll also have a few other treats like pea shoots, tomatillos and squash blossoms.

We’ll look for you on Saturday.
Thank you for stopping by our stand.


Blue Door Farm

It was so good to see everyone last week, I'm going to try it again. The raab is looking good (and has many more buds than last week), the turnips are tasty and the radishes look entirely too colorful and cheerful. I'll also have more sweet peppers, herbs and kale.

Happy Saturday!

funky Friday Farmers Market at BADSEED - FRIDAYS in the CROSSROADS


Some of you may have been present at market a few weeks ago some close friends performed The Ballad of Brooke and Dan. The video that came out of that performance is now available to THE WORLD. Check out the following links for your personal entertainment:

The Ballad of Brooke and Dan.

The Lyrics.

The Story.

Thanks to our lovely friends who made this possible!

Two of our lovely chickens have just laid their first EGGS! Talk about yolks. I think these girls have been eating too much Swiss chard; those yolks were burnt orange and tasted amazing. Unfortunately, these girls will only lay for our private consumption. But we are very proud parents! Everyone should keep their own chickens! Hopefully someday soon you can - LEGALLY.

Fall is setting in, and our appetites and habits are changing (consciously or not). We notice when we see tomatoes left on the market table toward the end of summer. With fall officially here, many farmers markets are slowing down. Don't forget about us!

In the warmth of the
BADSEED, we'll continue to have an abundance of organic delights. It's HARVEST SEASON, which represents the best produce from both the summer and fall. And as other markets close, we'll be adding more vendors to beef up the BADSEED Winter Market. Come see us this week and fill your mouth with the following:

Heirloom WINTER Squash (already sold out of Black Futsus)
alert-level Turk's Turban, sweeter than Pie Pumpkins, GIANT JAPANESE PINK BANANA,
succulent Sweet Dumplings, hippy-loving ACORN, fun-filled Spaghetti Squash, and Butternuts baby!

Loads of Sweet PEPPERS, Red, Purple, Green!!
Young and Tender ARUGULA from Lew, the Herb'n Gardener
Yard-Long Chinese Red Noodle Beans
Brooke's famous herbed Saute Mix
Tender Tuscan, Winterbor, and Russian Kale
HOT HOT HOT Peppers!
Sweeter than Spinach SWEET POTATO GREENS
Snoody French Filet Beans from Lew
Orgasmic Eggplants from Outer Space
Red Velvet Okra!
Superb Salad Mix from that Herb'n Gardener again
Onions and Garlic

And, of course, let us not forget that we will have EGGS, BREAD and SWEETS from Bread of Life Bakery, and coffee from Puddin' Head.

We'll see you Friday!!
