Hello November! The chill in the air is long overdue. While other markets are winding down, the Atherton Market is gearing up for a great fall and winter season. We’ve got seasonal events scheduled in the weeks to come, an abundance of fresh local food, and culinary experts to show you how to use it.
There are a few new vendors to tell you about – the locally acclaimed Lucky Leaf Gardens starts on Tuesdays this week, and recent additions to the market include Blueberry Hill Farm, Landis Gourmet Mushrooms, Commonwealth Farms, North 40 Farms, Centennial Farms, Pogo and Spot, and Haute Dogs. Watch Facebook for news of who is vending when.
Tuesdays we continue our Chef in the Market series with a different local culinary expert each week. This Tuesday we are hosting Craig Barbour, who is also working for Centennial Farms. He’ll show you what to do with lamb, and will also feature a number of our other vendors. In addition to the cooking demos, Rob from the Common Market will help you with wine and beer pairings for your at-home feast.
This Wednesday we’ll host a growing number of vendors, and in celebration of our new day and earlier weekday hours we’re going to offer breakfast! Each vendor will have something to sample that is appropriate for the most important meal of the day – and by the time you make your way around, you should be nourished and full of great ideas for mornings at home. Look for everything from smoked trout, to cheese and greens frittatini’s, to sausage balls, to muffins, to house made granola. There will also be coffee and green juice – something for everyone!
See you at the market!
