Last Outdoor Market Already?!

Saturday marks the final day of the outdoor Haymaker Farmers’ Market. Where does the time go?! It seems like just yesterday Diane and I were setting up for the first market of the season.

To say goodbye to summer I’ve been working on some of my very favorite jams this week.

Sour Cherry Jelly

Vanilla Balsamic Cherry Jam

But instead of syrup and fruit leather I’m making a jam. Vanilla Balsamic Cherry Jam is delicious. And I’ll have some for sale on Saturday.

I also roasted some pumpkin this week – a killer winter luxury pie pumpkin from Birdsong Farm.

But I’ve been brainstorming this week and I have a few other pumpkin ideas up my sleeve.

So I just listed several reasons why you should come see us Saturday at the final outdoor Haymaker Farmers’ Market – Sour Cherry Jelly, Vanilla Balsamic Cherry Jam, and mystery pumpkin treats.

I know it’s probably going to be cold and maybe even snowy on Saturday but bundle up and come see us all down on Franklin Street. Come say good bye to an awesome season.
