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





Reading the fall greetings from the vendors and the rain outside are making me chili…hmmm chili, with a little fresh ground, peppers, tomatoes and topped with a little artisan cheese – my favorite fall meal! And, all the ingredients are available at the market this week.

This is a special week with lots of guests and friends old and new:

We will be treated to a rare KC performance by the Ottawa Suzuki Strings Orchestra. The Ottawa Suzuki Strings Institute (OSSI) is an ensemble of young violinists, violists, and cellists from two to twenty years of age. These young string players recieve their music education in Ottawa, Kansas, at the Carnegie Cultural Center in a program directed by violinist, Alice Joy Lewis. Their music study is based on the Talent Education approach of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki. They will be in rotating performance from 8 am to 1 pm.
We will have special guests Powell Gardens and The Fiber Guild returning, as well. The Guild is there to celebrate “Spinning in Public Day”. Also, Border Star PTA will be returning to Children’s Corner with activities and crafts for the children.
We welcome them all to the market and hope you will join us for this special celebration!


Green Dirt Farm will be there! We will have a very yummy batch of Bossa
and plenty of our award winning Dirt Lover and Woolly Rind. We will also
have our Fresh and Feta and lamb cuts for a lovely Fall lamb stew or
grilling. Hope to see you on Saturday!


From Blue Door Farm:

The blackbirds are roosting in massive flocks and it was 52 degrees Tuesday morning. Now (and only now) will I say that fall is on the way!

I'll be bringing kale, a small amount of lettuce mix, okra (okra, okra...), sweet peppers and more eggplant. I'll also have more of those ugly but tasty apples!

See you Saturday,

Laura


From Wells Family Farms - Good Day to All! My supplies are low, I have lots of steaks, roast, ground in two pound packages only, stew meat, kabob cubes and organ meat. Mostly heart and liver. Kidney and suet for bird feeders this winter. Don't forget the bug repellant for these lovely evening, the skeeters are still out and hungry! DE will help keep the bugs outside where they belong and do away with those that insist on coming in anyway! Bed bugs, a subject on a lot of minds, are on the rise. It was suggested by a customer the other day, to have small bottles suitable for travel to keep your person and belonging safe in hotels. The Diatomaceous Earth is one of the few natural enimies of Bed Bugs and is quite effective in killing them.
We all hope you have a wonderful week and we look forward to seeing you at market Saturday

Thank you, Kim

Oh and new product, coming from Matt one of our market customers. He and his friends are very dedicated herb and pepper growers and have developed a wonderful variety of exciting culinary products! (that sounds good HUH?)


Bear Creek Farms

Another wonderful autumn week - I love this slower time when we actually can look around and see what's going on in our world. All the signs of fall are here - eagle spottings, tarantulas crossing the roads, 2 rattlesnake sitings this week, millions of parsley worms on my fennel - just about to become black swallowtail butterflies, big hay spiders appearing in the house - racing across the floor when I'm sitting up reading late at night, and an unexpected tree frog hopping through the house - I couldn't catch him so God knows where he might have gone! The crickets and ladybugs are moving in - along with the mice and not so appreciated cucumber beetles. Yep, it's fall!

At market this week there will be wonderful winter squashes, peppers of every color, potatoes and onions, deep purple eggplant, crisp red radishes, glorious orange pie pumpkins, cabbage, okra, and lots of asian and european pears. There may be a few tomatoes, but definitely some cherry tomatoes. And for a few lucky - and early - shoppers, some fresh figs.

Hope everyone is getting lots of time to enjoy this weather! See you Saturday.

From Sandy with NUTRESSANT

I have a confession to make. Even when I learned that commercial
body products were petroleum based, I continued to use my
face moisturizer. Why? Because it was expensive and just
because...... Until a month ago, when John made me a new face
cream to try and darn.........once again, I get to experience
firsthand the difference between commercial and organic products.
I have read that petroleum products get into the blood stream but do
not penetrate on a cellular level but now I truly understand it.
I can't believe I am discarding my wonderful (?) creams, but I'm
certainly going to be using what makes my skin healthier and
softens these happy smiling lines on my face.

SO, this week, we will be adding FACE CREAM with LAVENDER essential
oil to the line of body products, along with information on
why LAVENDER essential oil is so great for the skin. These is a
reason why so many women keep asking for Lavender.

Look forward to seeing you.........

Sandy (and John, who loves making stuff)

Hello Brookside Market from Bread of Life,
It is great to feel fall in the air and the leaves starting to change.
Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, since I grew up in Southern California we did not experience the wonderful changes of seasons that we have here. After 20 years here I still love the changing climate.
Luke and Chris will have warm Burritos, Quiches and Coffee to warm you while you stroll the market this week. The burritos have had the wonderful peppers, potatoes and squash from the market added to them and are a hit around our house. The guys really like the Sausage and egg ones.
Gluten Free breads ,snacks are available along with our usual breads granolas, cookies and snacks.
Have a great week and see you Saturday,
Luke, Chris and Kathy


Benedict Builders will be there, as always with their humanely raised meats, eggs, honey, artisan cheese, crafts, pumpkins and flowers.

Troost Community Farmers' Market - Saturdays at Linwood & Troost



Dear Loyal Customers:
This Saturday, 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!
