Sausages from Bright Ides or Sky Valley and Salmon from Wilson Fish may be calling you to the grill. Add to that the fabulous first peppers of the season and plenty of delicious fresh onions to sauté and enjoy with them. From Gypsy Rows, Frog Song Farm and Caruso Farm, you will find some delicious salad greens, spinach, herbs and squash.
For side snacks to enjoy, check out Bubba’s Salsa, Joe’s Garlic Sauce and Firefly Fermented Foods. All of these combined with carrots, celery or your favorite veggie make great munchies.
Thinking of delicious desserts? Check out Deborah’s Pies, Whidbey Island Ice Cream, Aura Bakery, Sweet Pearl and others.
If you are like me, you are checking out the pickling cucumbers, fresh beans, peaches and such for canning. Whether thinking of putting up your own pickles, dilly beans, jams or chutneys, now is the time to visit the market bright and early, so you can spend the day canning away. Trust me, there is nothing like opening a jar of veggies in the middle of November that you put up yourself. It brings all the happiness of summer with each bite.
Finally, don’t forget your flowers, and check out our amazing artists and crafters, full of unique ideas to add a touch of fun to your outfit, home or as a gift for a friend.
So, come down to the market this Saturday, open 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. And don’t forget: Please leave your pets at home.
