A few of your favorite (autumn market) things

Maybe they aren't your favorite things, but they sure are some of mine...

1. Autumn weather! How can you go wrong with beautiful crisp weather like we have been having? And what better way to enjoy this fine weather then browsing the market!?

The leaves haven't quite reached their peek in color yet... but soon enough!

2. APPLES! Apples are perfect by themselves, baked in the oven, shredded into salads, sliced in a sandwich, or mixed into a dish of sausage and risotto.
What is YOUR favorite way to enjoy apples? Your favorite kind of apple?
My current apple obsession: Idared.

3. Fundraisers and awesome people who support them. The Red Zebra will be donating $1 per pizza sale at this weeks market to the Hamilton Crop Circle. Check out Hamilton Crop Circles current fundraising initiative and help the cause for urban agriculture in Baltimore City!

4. Music. There is nothing like a little jam session by a bonfire on a nippy evening. Since there isn't a bonfire and it hasn't gotten that cold yet, I'll settle for the wonderful alternative of listening to Queen Earth at the market. If you missed her last week, she will be starting the market off again this week, performing between 4-5:30ish. Come Check her out!

5. Fall Vegetables. Yes, I get excited about fall vegetables. How can you resist dark leafy greens? Beets? Winter Squash? Pumpkins? Mushrooms? I could go on for awhile, but I'll spare you. Regardless, what better place to pick up some fresh local veggies than the market? Plus we are VERY HAPPY to welcome Twin Compass back to the market after a few weeks of struggling through field damages. So come check out their selection of fall produce and welcome them back to the market!
