Halloween Market

By 28 October 2020

It’s not often Halloween falls on a market day so we hope you will visit for some BOOtiful fresh food from our local farmers and makers.

October 31st marks the official end of our summer market. Starting November 7th we will move to our winter market season and will be open from 10am-2pm every other Saturday.

We will say a “farewell for now” to some seasonal vendors but plan to welcome lots of new additions in November. Stay tuned for our winter lineup in next week’s newsletter. You won’t want to miss it.

Make sure to keep an eye out for vendors in costumes this Saturday and vote for your favorite at the info booth. Also, we realize Halloween looks a lot different for our kids this year. We will have some takeaway goody bags (while supplies last) for our POP kids at the info booth as well.

We can’t end this season without a sincere thank you. Thank you for supporting your growers and local farms this season as we navigated through the ever changing rules and regulations regarding COVID. We have seen tremendous community support and I believe it makes us value our market and local growers even more.

See you at the market!

With gratitude,
Jess
Market Manager

Happy Halloween!

Bring on the Fall Finery: Pumpkin & Winter Squash

Nothing signals the start of the fall season than the appearance of pumpkin and winter squash in the market– so many shapes, so many colors, and so many sizes, with names like acorn, butternut, carnival, delicata, golden nugget, hubbard, kabocha, spaghetti squash, and more. Pumpkin and winter squash can be eaten now, or stored and/or preserved to eat later on.

How to Enjoy Pumpkin and Winter Squash Now:
  • Cut squash into chunks and steam, boil, or bake like you would a potato. Puree if desired and add to main dishes, soups, chili, stews, smoothies, or baked goods
  • Season cooked squash with sweet (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger), or savory (garlic or onion powder, chili powder, parsley, or oregano) spices
  • Roast the seeds in the oven at 300 degrees F for 10-15 minutes
How to Store Winter Squash:
Store winter squash in a cool dry place; preferably between 50 and 55 degrees F for several months

Try this easy Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix from Real Simple Magazine!
In a small bowl, whisk together:
3 T ground cinnamon
2 t ground ginger
1 t ground nutmeg
1 t ground allspice
½ t ground cloves
Makes about ¼ cup

For more info on preserving winter squash, stop by the info booth for some helpful handouts from OSU Extension!
