With a new month comes not only new crops, but a whole new farm. Please welcome Annie and her Moon Fox Farm this Sunday! Annie is a Bay Area local and former Chef whose passion for nature and food brought her to farming. Currently she is working on getting Demeter (Biodynamic) certified. Biodynamics is a holistic farming method which focuses on the the relationships between soil, crops, and animals to create a self-sustaining system. (Read more about Biodynamic Farming on the side bar!)
Annie will be bringing us a host of delicious produce throughout the months, but at her first market you'll see:
winter squash, garlic, prickly pears, rosemary, parsley and dry beans.
Stop by her booth and say "Hi!" She'd love to meet you and answer any farming, cooking, produce questions that you have.
When grapes are going out and apples are roaring in, you know autumn has officially hit.
Crimson Grapes will soon be done, but the Autumn Royal will take their seat to keep the grape alive for just a little while.
This week Niel, from Smit Orchards
, will be bringing you the tart sweetness of Pink Lady Apples (as well as other Fuji apples) and those unquestionably tart Granny Smiths that are always perfect for baking. Also, watch out for their fresh pressed Apple Cider.
Anastasia, from Indie Cakes
, brings us more delicious holiday treats: Gravenstein Hot Apple Cider, individual Pumpkin and Maple Pecan pies (and samples!) and Bacon Cheddar Scones featuring bacon from Fifthquarter Charcuterie.
Come and get it!
