This Week at the Market – November 25, 2018

Hello winter, and hello Brighton Winter Farmers’ Market! The new season opens this Sunday, November 25; join us Sunday afternoons, 1-4 pm, indoors in Brighton’s Brookside Center, 220 Idlewood Rd. (access to the building also from S. Winton between Westfall and 590). We’re so lucky to have year-round all-local, high quality food, and farmers and producers who are able to keep us well-fed during the chilly months. Supporting these hard-working folks during their traditionally lean months helps assure their success and our continuing access to the food that we value.

This week Andy’s Specialty Produce is bringing certified organic carrots, spinach, sweet potatoes, salad mix, arugula, green kale, green leaf lettuce, yellow onions, red beets, green cabbage, purple cabbage, napa cabbage, daikon radishes, red and yellow potatoes, and sunflower and pea shoots. Stonecrop Farm is bringing pasture-raised pork chops, shoulder roasts, breakfast sausage, ground pork, soup bones, trotters, organ meats, and leaf fat.

K&S Bischoping will have a good selection of apples — Honey Crisp, Snapdragon, Jonagold, Crispin, Empire, and Gala, as well as some heirlooms. Happy Hooves Organic Farm is bringing cuts of 100% grass-fed and grass-finished Hereford beef, cuts of pasture-raised heritage breed pork, and raw wildflower honey; all animals are raised on pasture without soy, corn, or wheat.
