Pictured above (l-r): Daniel Carpenter, Thom Duncan, Peter Reinhart and Jonathan Carpenter at our pepper roasting station. Thom recently donated a beautiful new stainless steel pepper roaster to the farmers' market. It replaces a pepper roaster that was on extended loan from Chef Reinhart. Many thanks to them both for their generosity. You can find Daniel and/or Jonathan manning our pepper roaster for the next couple of months at the front of the market. Roasting is a free service for market customers.
 Our Apple Fundraiser Starts Saturday
Fall is almost here and that means the start of our autumn market fundraiser with apples from Davis and Son Orchard in Lincoln County. We'll start out with Golden Delicious, Cortland and maybe some Gala varieties. Due to heavy on-farm sales, the grower can not come to market to sell the apples himself, so to make this in-demand product available to our customers we will sell the apples as a fundraiser for the farmers' market. All profits go supplement the market's operating budget and to pay for market improvements.
