Good evening everyone. Can you believe it’s the last weekend in October already? This means the World Series is underway, Daylight savings is almost over and the last Iowa City Farmers’ Market is here. What really amazes me is that Milo is almost 3 1/2 and Charlie is almost 3 1/2 months. How does time go by so fast?
We are always sad as the last market nears. It’s signaled, usually, by the first frost and this year the first snow has happened already. Over the last few years we have held a limited winter market. First at some friends’ house, later at DeLuxe Bakery (FYI, DeLuxe is celebrating 10 years in business this fall! Congratulations DeLuxe!). This year Salt Fork Farms will be housing the winter market out of Salt Fork Kitchen. The winter market will start November 2nd and be held each Saturday, 9-12, until the last Saturday in April. Once again you will be able to get your eggs and a lovely breakfast. Also, did you know Wake Up Iowa City! is roasting coffee for SFK, and you can buy it at the restaurant? How great is that?
This week for the last Iowa City Farmers’ Market, Eric will be there with greens (!!!), peppers, eggplant, leeks, celery, carrots, radishes, daikon, beets, spinach, arugula, squash, pumpkins, apples, onions, garlic, eggs and chicken. Last but not least, we will have fresh chicken on 10/30. If you are interested in fresh chicken, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
Thank you all for letting us be your farmer. We are so grateful that we get to do this.
