Farmers' Community Market at Brookside ~ SATURDAYS ~ 8am-1pm


Stop by at 9 am for the Stone Lion Theatre performance of Bubba & Trixie, a story of a caterpillar and lady bug in the garden, written by local author Lisa Campbell Ernst.

Stan Slaughter, Eco-Troubadour, is the Heartland's best known and most honored environmental educator. Since 1987 he has pioneered innovative environmental programs to educate and increase awareness of environmental issues. Stan has traveled to more than 25 states and performed for about 300,000 children and their teachers. His byline is "Seeds for Sustainable Culture". He works tirelessly to develop environmental literacy and help people appreciate the natural world.

Stan will be performing half-hour sets of music for the children at 10:30, 11:30, 12:30 and 1:30. In between he will be giving worm-composting demonstrations.

We welcome back Border Star Montessori PTA! Paula Busser PTA president and Tina Langston, principle of Border Star will be back in “Childrens’ Corner” with eco-projects for our young ones. They will have a crown-making table, a dough sculpting table and maybe a bell-pepper stamping table!

We are pleased to announce the arrival of NUTRESSANT, our new vendors this Saturday! John and Sandy bring us this special bath and body line that is nature friendly, vegan and organic. Since our skin absorbs 60% of what we put on it, they are as dedicated to keeping the outsides of us pure and toxin-free as our farmers are about the inside. The product line features bar soap, liquid soap, body butter, In-Shower Moisturizer, deodorant, toothpaste, lip balm, shampoo. Pomade and laundry wash.

Green Dirt Farm
Dirt Lover and Woolly Rind will be back this week! We will also have a
new, very buttery, batch of Prairie Tomme and another fresh batch of
ricotta. Fresh farmstead ricotta is an ephemeral cheese. It is best eaten
within just a few days of making it. So, don't hold on to it- eat it up!
And come get some more this Saturday.
We will also have our usual cuts of lamb and SAUSAGE.
See you at the market.

From Blue Door:

Sweeeeeet.... peppers. :) The italian fryers are still ripening like mad. These rich flavored beauties are my favorite vegetable this summer and I'm happy to share. Roast'em, grill'em, fry'em or just eat'em raw.

Also bountiful this week is the okra, which I recently discovered is stellar when roasted whole. Other stars of the week: japanese eggplant, cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, yellow and blue potatoes and kale. And yes, I will have a few more mini-melons.

Good stuff! See you Saturday.

From Bread of Life - Hi Brookside Market Goers,

Last week we saw Bryce and Lili off at the airport. We sure miss them when they leave and they have a hard time leaving here.
I want to thank everyone that stopped by and visited the little redheaded salesman. Bryce loves to be at the market and it is one of highlights of their visit to our farm. Bryce and Lili love to help at the bakery and create a market "special".I look forward to seeing what they come up with next year.
This week we will have market fresh peppers,and squash added to our farm egg burritos. Add a cup of Puddin' Head coffee for a wonderful morning break.
Luke and Chris will have our usual breads, jams, granolas, and cookies (Lemon Balm butter and Espresso Chocolate chip are yummy cookies to try.)
See you Saturday,
Luke Chris and Kathy

From KCCUA’s Community Farm

We’ll bring all the usuals to market this week including some lovely red sweet peppers and plenty of nice tomatoes. It looks like the weather has sped up the ripening of the winter squash, so we’ll bring a few spaghetti squash and some carnival. The basil is perfect this year and there is still garlic left, so get your pesto made now!

We thank you so much for coming out to market this and every week of the season. Our field crew has worked so hard to keep up and keep at the crops. We’re saying good-bye Kat this week. She’s been with us since February and has proven herself in many ways many times. She’s off to San Francisco to see what’s to see. Best of luck Kat and thanks so much!

Bear Creek Farms

I can't believe we are half way through August and some mornings, before the heat soars, I swear I feel a tiny touch of fall in the air. Bring it on!!

This week at market we'll have shiny purple eggplant, beautiful okra, colorful peppers, crisp cool cabbage, onions, yellow and purple potatoes, yummy heirloom tomatoes and whatever else we might find.

Hope to see you all at market Saturday. Stay cool!
