Siloam Springs, AR:  The Online Market and Farmers Market are CLOSED October 8

Because this Saturday is the Homegrown Festival in downtown, we are taking a break from the online and in-person markets this week!

Come downtown Saturday from 9am-5pm and enjoy the Homegrown Festival! We’ll have lots of booths featuring local artisans, plus food trucks and more!

The following week, October 15, is the last Saturday of our outdoor market in Memorial Park. It will be our last Kids Day (which will have a pumpkin theme since it’s October!) as well.

Beginning October 22, we will be starting up our first ever Winter Market! While the weather is nice, it will be located in front of the Moss House (next door to Memorial Park). Once the weather gets bad, we’ll move the Winter Market indoors to the basement area of the Moss House (there is a sidewalk leading around the building to the basement area for those who don’t want to navigate stairs etc.). The Winter Market will feature 6-8 of our vendors throughout the winter months, and will include a (smaller) selection of local meats, produce, baked goods, and artisan crafts. It will run from 9am-noon on Saturday, from October 22 to December 17 (with a one week break right after Thanksgiving).

We hope to see you October 15 and at the Winter Market!

Growers News:

Welcome Dustin Scaccetti of NashPhilly, to the market find delicious meals in ‘Noodles, Pasta and Italian Sauce’
category section on the market.

We have 2 that are available this week:

Beef and Cheese Lasagna Single Portion
Classic lasagna with beef. 3 layers of robust roasted garlic red sauce, and smothered with mozzarella, parmesan, and ricotta cheeses. Infused with Italian herbs such as basil, rosemary, oregano, and parsley. These are in a 9in by 6in by 2in deep pan. Can feed one very hungry person or would be perfect for two people with a side salad or soup. The pasta noodles and beef are all fully cooked, will require additional baking at home!

Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken. Single Portion
It’s a roasted garlic and parmesan cream sauce. I add some Italian herbs to finish the pasta like parsley, rosemary, and oregano. The chicken is seared golden brown + delicious and will be sliced and put on top. Single individual portion, but it could probably feed two. I use 8 oz of noodles per order. I recommend you reheat on the stove top with 1/4-1/2cup of heavy cream, little salt and cracked black pepper to have the the best results.

Pinky’s Micros:
We now have 2 oz. and 4 oz. units available of our Microgreens and Sprouts! This week we have these delicious Microgreens and Sprouts available.
Basic Salad Mix, Broccoli, Pea shoots,
Radish microgreens, Sunflower micro greens.

Emerald Acres: Assorted Cherry Tomatoes, Beautiful Dahlias and Sweet Pepper Mix.

Spring Meadow Farm:
Arugula, BokChoy, Green Tomatoes, Kale, Roma Tomato, Super Greens, Tomatillo, Tomato Mix, Turnip Greens and our delicious Watermelon Salsa.

Rainbow Hill Farm:
We still have Gourmet Cabbage available, these are large heads 10-15 pounds! This is a sweet cabbage, great for kraut, slaw and cooking.

Reminder, this is the only time of year that you can get the freshest apples. Not refrigerated and ready to eat, dry or make sauce with them. We’ve already sold out of several popular varieties, don’t wait, get your order in!

Ambrosia: apple variety with a mildly sweet and juicy flavor. Has a pink tinged flush over a yellow background.
Rome: Dark red. Mild flavor, somewhat sweet. Good for both cooking and eating fresh.
Jonagold: This apple is a cross of Jonathan and golden delicious. A tart flavor with some sweetness.

Pennie’s Delights: Last weeks pickup time was a delight to have Pennie and her husband setup with some of their products. If you have not had her Cinnamon Rolls you have missed out on a very delicious treat, soft and just the right amount of cinnamon and icing! The Peach Cobbler is a must for a after meal dessert or just a delicious treat. She also had several of her other items to purchase.

Starting to increase our Jam and Jellies. Check out our Fig Preserves – YUMMY on our Biscuits! Cowboy Candy (Fireball HOT Jalapenos)

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: I like to sell perennials in bloom in spring and summer for instant color in your garden, but fall really is the very best time to plant container-grown perennials, shrubs, or trees. Their root systems suffer very little transplant shock, compared to field-grown plant materials. Planting in September or October allows their root system to keep growing all winter in our climate. Maintenance, especially watering, is much easier, with cooler temperatures in fall, and better drought resistance next spring and summer. For this reason, I have made some of my more popular perennials available now, even though they aren’t in bloom in this season. These include the astilbes, dwarf crested iris, woodland phloxes, candytuft, dwarf coreopsis, and shasta daisy this week, with a few more to come. My late season bloomers will now bring color to your garden, including the fall reblooming azaleas, beautiful tall gauras, very unusual toadlily, and taller sedum. I have a huge selection of ferns and hostas ready to plant now in your shade garden, and you can get your whole herb garden planted this fall from my collection. Order soon, as some of these plants are in short supply at this time of year. I have a few nice young hanging baskets which will do a good job of replacing your tired old spring baskets to brighten the house this winter. Lastly, my beautiful Christmas decorations will soon be available for pre-order, including a new smaller size of natural decorated wreath. October orders will be the first ones filled in early December.

Lathemtown Farm Fresh Market:  This Week at the Market

Good morning! We are off to a crisp fall already. I’m ready for fires and hot apple cider!

This week is a limited offering because we are off to my daughter’s wedding in Greenville, GA this weekend. Looking forward to a joyous occasion!!

Eggs will be in short supply for a while because the hens have decided they are not crazy about the crisp air… with 50+ hens and ducks I am only getting 6 eggs each day!!! Slackers!

Next week we will be back with 3 soups every week, some warm entrees, fall salads, pumpkin roll cakes, and more.

Thanks for all your container and jar returns – I will update the credits, but if I miss yours just remind me.

The stand remains open and is stocked with white pumpkins, minis, Ellijay apples, and still some of the summer harvest. Of course, jams, honey, soaps, tea & coffee, garlic are all there as well.

Thanks for supporting our farm market!

McColloms Market:  October Market Closes Tonight

Hi All:

Just a reminder…. If you want to place an order this month, tonight is the deadline.



Champaign, OH:  October Road

Let the sun run down right behind the hill
I know how to stand there still
’Till the moon rise up behind the pine, oh Lord
October road…
(James Taylor)

Well, here we are, lovely market customers…we have started into this most colorful, golden tinged month of October.

October brings in a whole new, crisp feel to the air. A different way of eating, different activities, beautiful sunrises, lovely sunsets. And, as always, we are here with you, to welcome in this next change of season.

I just got back from vacation, last week, only to head straight into sheer panic with my daughter, son-in-law, their pup, and their soon to be babe, who is due in less than four weeks, fleeing Hurricane Ian. They are safe, they had family to escape to, inland, and are still not in their house because of no power in their area of Cape Coral. But, they are safe.

Thankfulness does not begin to describe my feeling for their safety, it is still with a heavy heartbreak over the devastation around them. This song, that I picked for today, gives a sense of hope, of peace, of rebuilding…all of what I wish for all who were devastated by the hurricane.

Shelter gives us strength, shelter gives us love, shelter gives us security. I hope that this market always serves as a shelter of goodness to you.

The turn of the autumn weather rebuilds in us, gives us a rebirth, and that is what I hope for all, every day…the goodness and the hope…

The market is open, and taking orders until 8am, tomorrow morning.

I am off the market, this week, getting ready for a big wedding, with loads of prep, that I’m catering with Hippie and the Farmer, Saturday.

I will be back, next week, with breads, and also soups!

October road…
