Rain, and the threat of thunderstorms, kept many shoppers and three vendors at home, but there was a steady flow of people restocking their kitchens. And the musicians played through it all under a double tent.

Timber Buck Maple Farm had its regular flow of customers.

Sunscape was slow and steady.

Mark and friends set up a second tent for themselves and the audience. They will be back this week.

Jessica will help us close down the market for the year with her latest recipe, inspired by fresh autumnal produce. Drop by her tent for inspiration for your own October home cooked meals and wish her a happy winter. We look forward to greeting her at our market again in the spring. Thanks, Jessica, for your support of our market and for all the ideas you have given us for eating healthful and delicious foods.

Glazed Chicken Sausage with Sautéed Cabbage

I am thinking of my Monroe Village Farmers Market friends and wishing you warm, cozy meals during the upcoming winter. I chose this recipe to say good-bye to you until we see each other again next year. Make it quick, make it easy, but then sit down to savor it slowly. Think of our good times together, our friendly vendors, the beautiful fruits and vegetables, the maple syrup and honey, flowers, hummus, handmade soap and pet treats, Italian ices (they were so good when it was hot), bakery goods (oh, yes!) the great music, the many little goats we have met and petted. Let's not forget the Community Tent that brought us insight, information and some great treats.

Click on the link below,cook up the recipe, and wax nostalgic. See you next year!
