Farmers Market Finds and the Weekly Menu 10/17 - 10/23/10

I love the farmers market in the fall, the crisp sunny mornings, the wonderful fall vegetables & the hot apple cider.
Swisscuit & Hot Apple Cider
We have our apple cider with one of the wonderful biscuits from Sun Street Breads. Currently, the biscuits are made with ham, mustard & swiss cheese, they are to die for!
Sun Street Breads
Though these days you have to get to the market early to grab some of Solveig's baked treats. An article in the Star Tribune 2 weeks ago has lines reaching through the whole market the last couple of Sundays. We are thrilled for her as long as we get our Sunday morning biscuit!
Farmers Market Finds 10/17
Here's this week's farmers market finds...

Sun Street Lunchbox Bread - For this week lunchtime sandwiches

On to Menu Planning Monday....

Beef & Barley Soup with Carrots & Parsnips - Made this last night & its so perfect for this fall weather

Oh yum! Those biscuits look delish. Where exactly is that farmer's market? My cousin lives in Mpls and he loves the markets.

I wont tell you that we get our butternut squash for a dollar a piece. Oops I think I did just tell you. On the other hand we do not have the amazing selection that you seem to have. That bag of garlic you have there would probably cost between 15-20 dollars though. Three heads for 4.75- at the market at least- not in the grocery stores.

Great menu this week!

I'm going to miss our farmers market! I've loved everything we've tried this summer.

I love the markets in Minneapolis- my best friend lives in St Paul and I come to visit her in fall every few years.We always make at least one trip to a local market.

I canned salsa verde last week and opened a jar to make chicken enchiladas on Monday. I'm picking the last of my tomatillos today -hopefully there's enough for another batch of salsa.

I love that you are still getting all this great stuff from your Farmer's Market. Ours mostly closed down around here due to the dry weather, but I have been able to score some squash and cider from our orchards.

We've never been to the Kingfield market, but think we'll check it out this Sunday! Most of the other markets have shuttered for the season and I still need to stock up on squash and stiffneck garlic. Will have to get there right at open to score some of that amazing-looking bread.
