Troost Community Farmers' Market - Saturdays at Linwood & Troost

Dear Loyal Customers:
This Saturday, Sept. 11, Claudia has eggplant and tomatoes, as well as carrots and herbs. Supersweet 100's and yellow baby pear tomatoes are available this week.
Carrots, straight and baroque, white and yellow. All are yummy!
Fragrant herbs, much less expensive than in the grocery store, this week include rosemary, oregano, sage, bay leaf, basil, mints, chives, & lemony wood sorrel. The basil is getting big, so there will be much more of it this week and the peppermint is oh so fragrant.
Don't forget peppermint lemonade and good lean buffalo meat (frozen). Robert is back to charcoal grill bratwurst, this week.
Last Saturday, Howard Walden and Bill Anthony were elected to the Board of Directors and Howard (aka Spanky) was made Sargent-at-Arms.

See you soon!
When: Saturday 8-noon
Where: corner of Linwood and Troost in KCMO
(parking lot west of Uncle Jim's furniture store)


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

My apologies to both vendors and faithful market shoppers for the delay of the newsletter. This past week I broke our EBT machine, had a flat on the Katy trail and my computer crashed. But, I’ll be at the market with a big smile on my face, anyway (just don’t stand too close to me). It’s been a great week anyway!

We will be having Dave Wendler entertain us for the first time tomorrow with country, pop and jazz standards.

Also, our musicians Ned and Jennifer Scott prepared a wonderful video of the Brookside Market. Just follow the link to view:

Green Dirt Farm will be at the market with plenty of our award winning
Dirt Lover and Woolly Rind cheeses. Both cheeses took second place wins in
their categories at the American Cheese Society's 2010 competition last
week. It was the largest competition for the ACS yet with over 1400
entries. We feel very proud! We will also have plenty of our first place
winner from last year's competition: Bossa. And don't forget Prairie Tomme
and Fresh. We'll also have frozen lamb. Ask us about recipes for great end
of summer grilling. See you on Saturday!

I will be there with all the great cuts, ground and a sign up sheet for those who want to order chickens! I just know so many who want them, and I should be able to do the whole chicken 3.5 pounds or so, for $10. And, I’ll have my juicy, yummy beef, as usual!

From Bread of Life

Hello Brookside Market goers,

We are having nice cool weather to come out and enjoy a morning at market in.
We will have our usual breads and our new line of Gluten Free grab and go snacks and Anna's GF Bread.
Luke and Chris will also have sausage burritos, veggie burritos, quiches and morning goodie to start the day right.
See you all Saturday,
Luke, Chris and Kathy

Fall is just around the corner. The summer and its “summerness” has passed. We continue to seed fall and winter crops in the field, high tunnels and even trying the greenhouse this year. The seed garlic arrived at the farm yesterday. We’re ready, so ready! We’re ready to stop and gather what we’ve learned about the this season and ready to plan for next summer. Caught up in the rhythm of life and its endless motion…happily.

Sign up at the stand this weekend for our Fall and Winter CSA! No commitment (nice) just a weekly email then you decide to opt in for the week’s offering or pass til the next. The turnips are sizing up…

But back to this week…
We’ll bring more hugely giant and seriously delicious sweet potatoes. Spaghetti and acorn squash. Fingerling potatoes. Garlic. Shallots. Leeks. A FEW TOMATOES. Parade onions. Beets and carrots. Sweet peppers. Hot peppers. Eggplant. Summer squash. ARUGULA. SALAD MIX. Sweet potatoes greens. Malabar spinach. BASIL and other fresh herbs.

See you at market!

Is it too much to ask for this glorious fall weather to go on until - oh, I don't know - Christmas? It is like being alive again after sweating our way through this summer.

It was such fun for Jim and me to see everyone last Saturday and to catch up with all of your news - both good and sad. We do miss seeing everyone, but it is so nice to let the next generation head off and see them make it their market. (And it is so nice to have slow Saturdays with Jim.)

As for market - we'll have whatever we can find - and that is getting less and less! Today we will start ripping out the tomato plants - seems like we just got them planted! We spent the morning digging over a thousand pounds of potatoes - so I know we'll have lots. And there will be more of the amazing heirloom varieties of sweet potatoes - I never realized how different each kind tastes - we ate the purple ones for supper last night - wow! I think - if Lonnie and I can stop eating them - that there will be more fresh figs. And of course there will be loads of winter squashes, onions, eggplant, peppers and more. Surely soon the fall greens, radishes, etc will be ready - they seem like they are barely growing with these shorter days!

As always, thanks for all your support - the kind words at market make us smile all week!

From Blue Door Farm

I'll be there Saturday, enjoying what I hope will be a bright and sunny day. This weather is cheering my spirits of late. It's amazing how much wearing a comfy sweatshirt cheers me up.

The summer crops think this rain is a bit much, but are soldiering on. So I'll be bringing:

Spaghetti Squash (Woohoo!)
Carmen Sweet Peppers
Japanese Eggplant
Okra (Okra, Okra, Okra...)
Kale (which thinks this cooler weather and rain is just dandy, thank you very much)

See ya Saturday,
