We also have delicious baked goods in the market this weekend, courtesy of ToddleSquat Bakery. Get tasty apple galettes, madeleines, whoopie pies, frosted sugar cookies, duffins (half donut, half muffin - yum), brownies, and chocolate chip cookies.  Whew! (I think  that covers it). Check out their Facebook page for a sneak peak at what will be available.

Also, Saturday morning you can get up close and personal with our cider press. Our picking crew will be making a fresh, delicious batch of our blended apple cider, and we will open up the back to anyone who wishes to see how it's done. It is especially entertaining for kids who have just finished picking apples to see the whole process take place. Our guys should have the press up and running when we open at 9 a.m., and they will probably wrap things up around 1 p.m.

There are also tons  of pumpkins, all shapes, sizes and colors, for sale this weekend as well as large, beautiful mums and various gourds and squash for decorating and for eating. Come on by and make us your one-stop-shop for all things Fall.

 

The end is near, just in time for a beginning.

We are picking the last of our peaches this week, and do not anticipating having any peaches left for the weekend.  It is also unlikely that we will have any peaches at the Westerville farmers market on Wednesday. We will be there with apples, though.  

Even though peaches are finishing up, our season is still going strong. We have an excellent apple crop, and still plenty of tasty varieties to come! Honeycrisp has finished up, be Rubinette is still being picked. We also have Grimes Golden and Cortland is large supply, and a few other fantastic varieties in the market. It looks like we are going to get some Pinova picked this week, another one of our more popular apples. 

Also coming up this week is our apple cider! If everything goes according to plan, we will have our first batch of freshly-pressed cider ready for this coming weekend. 

We are making regular trips to the auctions about three times a week to stock up on lots of fall items. Stop on out for mums, pumpkins, corn stalk bunches, squash, and gourds of all shapes and sizes!
