Week 18: Dia del Nino and Delicata Squash

Happy Autumn! I’m headed out the door to celebrate Sukkot, the Jewish harvest festival, and enjoy the rich autumn bounty (apple crisp, anyone?). As we’ve officially transitioned from one season to the next, at least per the calendar if not the weather, our fall crops are beginning to emerge. Honeycrisp apples are at their peak perfection, bouquets of broccoli are blooming, and deep orange sweet potatoes are ready for roasting and mashing. It may still be steamy outside, but in my kitchen? It’s definitely fall.

So with only five weeks left in the 2010 Crossroads Farmers Market season, don’t miss these last chances to experience the best in fresh, local produce!

This week at the Crossroads: Dia del Nino!
This Wednesday, September 29, is Dia del Nino/Kid’s Day at the Crossroads Farmers Market! Timed to coincide with the October 1st Kid’s Day celebration in Guatemala, we’ll be packing the full four hours of markets with activities for children and families. With entertainment from the Jazzy Juggler from 3-5pm, English/Spanish yoga for kids at 5pm, hourly raffles, and other games throughout the afternoon, this week’s market is not to be missed! So come on out with the whole family to enjoy what’s forecast to be our first day of sunshine this week.

Also, thanks to all who participated in last week’s Mark’s Kitchen Third Tuesday Fundraiser. It was wonderful seeing so many familiar faces there! Many thanks for all the support.

Looking forward to seeing you, rain or shine, from 3-7pm at 7676 New Hampshire Avenue.
