Who Knew? 🌰

Hello Market Friends: Now that we are really sure 2020 is behind us, it seems worth a brief backwards glance. Can you believe that in December we passed 10,000 orders and 100,000 items purchased through our shop?  This certainly did not seem like where we were headed on the windy April Thursday when a small band of chilly helpers ran between the farm...

A Wish for Light ⭐

Adam from Spade & Spoon sent this remarkable photograph he took in their sugarbush, of shadowy trees waiting for the light to reach past that cold blue line, so like many of us have felt with each passing day and season. Chanukah candles are brightening windows, the solstice is almost here, and the light will grow stronger again. Last Thursday at the...

Grown and Made with Love and Care

Hello Market Friends: It’s terribly hard to be a small business owner these days. Hard to be a market vendor, too, finding out that you can only sell your wares if they (and you) won’t perish outside. We are fortunate in having a way of operating which allows us to carry on, and we aim to continue straight on through the winter, except for December 24th...

A Tale of Two Cabbages 🐶

Hello Wonderful People! Last week was a tough one in the customer service department. As darkness fell on Wednesday evening, Ted Thorpe called to break the news that it was still snowing in Millgrove, and the row covers protecting his late fall greens were too frozen onto the ground for him to harvest. Not Ted’s fault that the weather turned out to be a...

The Frost is on the Pumpkin

The Frost is on the Pumpkin

Posted by on Nov 1, 2020

Hello Market Friends: The silvery moon brought the first frost to my garden this weekend. I went to the trusty Farmer’s Almanac to find that this moon has three names; it’s a Minimoon, because it’s the full moon farthest from the Earth, it’s Blue, because it’s the second full moon in October, and it’s the Hunter’s Moon “as this is the time of year when...

What Smells So Good?

What Smells So Good?

Posted by on Oct 11, 2020

Something about October makes me crave warm and rich aromatics. The sweet relief from my seasonal allergies just demands pies in the oven and soup on the stove. I could eat pumpkin spice for every meal (and I do) but, I want to highlight a few goods from our vendors which really elevate my fall cooking. Vasile Florin brings these beautiful dried pears and...
