Farm to Market Report: Weekend of October 6-7

Can you believe it’s already October? Where has this year gone? Before you know it, it’ll be December and we will be yearning for warmer days and summer produce. This weekend looks to be our first real taste of fall with Saturday’s 57-degree high. Throw on a jacket, grab a coffee, and take advantage of the cool weather in store. Get out to your local farmers market before they close their doors for the season.

Celebration Farmers Market: This Saturday will be Celebration’s last regularly scheduled market of the season.  It looks like this will be a special one with pet adoption representatives back with more animals! Regular vendors will make an appearance with local honey, canton produce, organics (peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, cucumbers), Texas olive oil, cookies, and much more.

Granola from Grapevinegrains.com

Coppell Farmers Market: A lot of news from Coppell for the weekend. There’s a plethora of fresh produce coming just in time for the weekend. Apples, pears, potatoes, squash, onions, lettuces and greens are plentiful along with a wide assortment of summer and fall vegetables and herbs. The first smoked King salmon of the season will also be available.

 

Dead End Farms has offered zucchini cake and bread recipes to customers who purchase any of their zucchini. The new one they grew this year is Butta: a large, almost white, long squash. Bring the children and choose your pumpkins and other fall produce décor.

A new month means new seasonal flavors. ARay of Cakes’ cake ball flavor of the month is pumpkin spice, and Grapevine Grains’ October granola flavor of the month is Texas Cinnamon Pecan. Additionally, this is the first of the month so that means that Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters will be on site. They are happy to grind the beans and way you like. Other returning vendors include Latte Da Dairy, Eagle Mt. Goudas , and Susan Cross’ Texas pecans.
