It seems the Old Timey Fall Festival kicks off the autumn season. Last weekend beautiful weather and record crowds, combined with great music, a memorable parade, and lots of good food, crafts, and, of course, the Farmers’ Market, produced a perfect introduction to the fall. Now the Farmers’ Market is back together at the Burnsville Town Center, featuring locally grown fall produce and lots more.
Look for cole and root crops, plus potatoes, winter squash, pumpkins and gourds, in addition to the usual late summer greens. Of course, David Duncan will be featuring his wide variety of fall apples. In addition to her usual local honey and beeswax candles, Loree Capps has assembled some beautiful gift baskets. Check them out!
This week look for apples, beans, carrots, chives, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, fresh herbs, garlic, grapes, kale, lettuce, okra, peppers, potatoes, pumpkins, salad mix, scallions, summer and winter squash, Swiss chard, tomatoes, and watermelon. Other farm products available include honey, eggs (including quail eggs), goat cheese, seeds, and cut flowers and arrangements. Also available are homemade jams and jellies, fresh baked goods, and a wide variety of plants and local crafts.
Finally, guests can enjoy hot and cold drinks, and Farmers’ Market souvenirs to round out their visit to the market. And don’t forget that the market will be moving indoors on November 1 through mid-December. The “winter market” will be located next to the Garden Deli in the former “Touch Of Cass” building.
