PREVIOUSLY AT THE MARKET

Bad weather stormed in during the mid-afternoon last week. Some very heavy thunderstorms soaked the Market. Several vendors stayed away. And a lot of shoppers stayed home, too.

But Market Day volunteers, GG Bakes, Timber Buck Maple, Sunscape, Trillium Health (thanks for a photo!), and Jeanne and Gerard Weber of Weber Music braved the weather. Some shoppers came out, bought some things, listened to some music, and had a grand, somewhat wet, time!

At opening time, the rain was quite heavy.

GG Bakes and Timber Buck were ready for customers. Kids loved the experience of shopping in the rain!.

Sunscape was undeterred. And Jeanne and Gerard Weber played beautifully to empty seats but appreciative vendors.

NAME OUR MASCOT (THE KNITTED GOAT)

Naming Contest

All the names suggested during the past six weeks are clever and catchy. We have selected 10 of the names that we think will command the most interest.

Stop by the information table to cast your vote - one person, one vote. Children are encouraged to vote, too! We will collect votes for two weeks (Sep 13 and 20). And you can vote on Facebook, too - but in-person votes will count twice as much as a vote on Facebook.

The name with the highest number of votes will become our mascot's name, and the person who originally suggested that name will win a basket of items selected from our Market's vendors.

And we will draw one additional winner of a basket from the paper ballots that are submitted on Market Days at the information table.

The winners will be contacted by phone and announced the week of Sep 27.

RECIPE FOR THIS WEEK

Selected by Maxine Manjos

Kale and Goat Cheese Frittata Cups

We are so lucky to have wonderful goat cheese at out market, but you may have been looking for some ideas about how to cook with it. Why not try it in a muffin that you could use for breakfast or a light lunch? in combination with seasonal kale or another green vegetable substitute, you will find a treat filled with flavor and an interesting texture.

Click on the link below below and then buy some delicious goat cheese at the Clover Meadow Creamery tent. Say hi to Kim for me.
