Market Canceled This Week!

Hello there!

Been hearing about a storm coming this Thursday? Yea, us too. We want to save you all from a wet, uncomfortable trip to the market so we decided to postpone one week. Our last market and our Day of the Dead celebration will be held at the same time, same place on November 3rd. Expect lots of veggies, honey, meat, art, tinctures, bike repair- AND an altar to celebrate those who have past AND a labyrinth for time to reflect AND a DJ so you can get your groove on.

Postponing a week just creates more excitement right? See you all on the third!

 

And Then There Were Two…

Hi Pesky folks!

So we got some rain! Hooray for our farmers! Hopefully they got all their dry beans and squash out before the rain. This probably means no more tomatoes (if there are some it would be this week so you better come!) All of our fingers are crossed for a wet winter for you farmers and ranchers.

Two more markets- this feels like the fastest season we’ve had so far! Every and her bike repair booth is back this week- after being gone for two weeks I’m sure she’ll have a lot of bikes brought in these last two markets so if you need a tune up, I’d bring your bike in early!

Our faithful vendors Blue House Farm and Fly Girl Farm are holding strong and making it to the market this week. Flowers are still booming at Fly Girl and Blue House is bringing a myriad of veggies (as usual). Open Eye Creations will also be attending and bringing her beautiful driftwood art. Holidays are around the corner… think about Christmas presents people!!

HMB Library is making their final appearance at the market. Legos, button making, and free books!

Music wise- Locals Pelican Duo will be getting down with the stand up bass and the acoustic guitar.

Here at Puente we appreciate all of you who support us- and your local farmers, ranchers, and musicians. Thank you.

Hope to see you this Thursday Pesky people!

 

Meat at the Market!

Tres más!! Can you believe it? Only three more markets!

Even with the season dwindling down we have a full market prepared for you. The six vendors coming this week consist of Blue House Farm, Farmageddon (they have delicious pickles and figs), Fly Girl Farm, Left Coast Grass Fed (beef and pork people!), Steadfast Herbs, and Open Eye Creations.

This is Pie Ranch’s last week coming to provide children’s activities–we heard word of flower bombs! Ziggy Tarr and all his funk will be providing tunes for the market, and Thomas, our bike mechanic intern, will be running the bike repair booth on his own so only bring in tune ups and flats!

Three more Thursdays you veggie lovers. Hope to see you there.

Notice a lot of peppers recently at the market? Here’s a list of pepper recipes to inspire you to use these vegetables more in your day-to-day cooking. They are a great source of vitamins A, C and B6.

Four More Markets- Make Them Count

We only have four more farmers’ markets until the end of our season, so please come on out and show our farmers and artisans some support in this final month. The new location is great and we welcome your thoughts about what we can do in the new space. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with Cindy and her team. (Don’t forget you can donate to the Pescadero Country Store employee fund. Learn more here).

For the first market of October we have a good vendor line up. Blue House Farm and Fly Girl will be holding down the veggies stands. State Street Honey will be bringing the sweetness and Open Eye Creations will have her driftwood art.

Dan Newitt, one of Puente’s health promoters, will be providing the tunes at the market. Liz Gatt will be coming to take care of child activities and POST, one of our market sponsors, will have a table.

REMINDER: There is no free bike repair at the market this week.

Cuatro más- don’t miss out!
