What's Old is Now New at the Farmers Market

Fall deliveries from C.N. Smith Farm.   
We're getting into a groove at the Braintree Farmers Market hosted by Sustainable Braintree.  The vendors that joined us for the first time this season have now learned the ropes and already have regular customers that show up to support them every week.  The weather is now transitioning towards warm days and cooler evenings and things couldn't be any more perfect for enjoying the peak of harvest season.  Join us every Saturday at the Town Hall Mall from 9 to 1, rain or shine, and start your weekend with a refreshing trip to an open air market with some of the best local products that you'll find anywhere.   
   Although we've spiced up the market with some great new vendors our farmers and vendors that have been with us since we opened in 2009 are always adding to their product lineups to keep things fresh and interesting.  The Farmer's Garden will start bringing many different varieties of squashes along with more leafy lettuce as the temperatures begin to cool.  C.N. Smith Farm has begun to bring a wide color assortment of fall mums just in time to spruce up your front porch.  Rob is always on hand to help you with your choices and even bring your purchases to your vehicle if you like.  This grower has a neighbor that's a beekeeper who brings her hives onto the farm to help with pollination of the crops.  All of the honey you'll find at their stand is made from the bees that are kept on their property.  Look for flavorful cider pressed from their own apples in their coolers at the market now.

Flip Flop Cookies from Jack's Cookie Jar.

   If you have a sweet tooth look no further than Jack's Cookie Jar.  Jack and his team of creative cookie bakers are constantly coming up with new cookie ideas.  Whether it's the brand new and totally delicious Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie or the recent, melt in your mouth Pecan Shortbread, you know Jack serves up only the best.  Whatever the holiday or season look for the most beautiful decorative cookies that taste as great as they look.  At Jack's Cookie Jar they love Halloween and can't wait to unlock their artistic cookie ideas for all to enjoy in the very near future. 

Find a wide selection of baked goods at Ever So Humble Pie Company.
   Have you noticed that our very own, award winning, Ever So Humble Pie Company has become more popular than ever?  If you want the best selection it's a good idea to get to the market early.  Chief pie maker, Andrea Taber, is always coming up with new products that continue to entice us and have us coming back for more.  This season she's experimenting with a new line of savory tarts.  The recently unveiled Zucchini Frittata is a perfect balance of fresh eggs, cheese and locally grown zucchini with a creamy texture and buttery crust.  It's goes perfectly with greens from the market and makes a quick meal that's healthy and delicious.  New pie flavors for this year are White Peach and Raspberry along with Summer Medley which is a blend of strawberries, blueberries, rhubarb and oranges.  Andrea has also been surprising us with new pie flavors as she continues to create the Ultimate Pie Sensation.  Remember the BlueBarb Pie?  Try her recent addition of tea breads with fall flavors like zucchini, banana, pumpkin and apple.  There's also an incredibly delightful Gluten-free Angel Food Cake that has a heavenly texture and taste.
   These are just a small sampling of newer items available from some of our original market vendors.  Please check in next week for the continuation of recently introduced products from our seasoned vendors.  For more information or to volunteer please visit us at www.sustainablebraintree.org.  See you on Saturday.
