JUST EAT LOCAL

BECAUSE IT’S IMPORTANT & BECAUSE THE RIVERSIDE FARMERS’ MARKET TOLD YOU TO

Come for the late-summer bounty

pumpkinsWe have just a few weeks left in our 2013 season, but our farmers, bakers and other vendors have plenty left to bring to market! Stop by Wednesdays, 2:30 to 7 p.m. next the Riverside Public Library to see (and taste) for yourself.

This week, Sept. 11, the library is giving you a chance to buy their surplus craft supplies as they make way for new projects. Your purchase supports the Friends for the Future Campaign. They’ll have book posters, art posters, craft supplies and craft books for sale.

And if you’ve been wondering how to incorporate essential oils into the care of your body and your home, vendor Elaine Ruggless from Nourishing OIls will hold a post-market free class on “Essential Oils for Babies and Children” at 7 in the library.

The Riverside Public Library is holding a Craftsapalooza in their tent during the market. They have cleaned their closets and shelves and have craft supplies, book posters, laminated art posters, and youth and adult arts and crafts books that they need to sell! Perfect for parents, teachers, grandparents and students. All proceeds support the Friends for the Future Campaign! Stop on by to learn all about it.

Be sure to bring your knives, scissors and gardening tools for sharpening.

And our friendship with Cantata continues. A Cantata chef will be on hand doing cooking demonstrations and tastings using ingredients selected right from the market. In addition, Cantata residents are stopping by for their monthly visit. Thank you to Blythe Park Girl Scouts for volunteering to check bags and otherwise help them out.

This week, you can expect to find apples, beets, blackberries, blueberries, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, garlic, grapes, green beans, herbs, kale, melons including muskmelon and watermelon, mushrooms, okra, onions, nectarines, patty pan squash, peaches, pears, a large variety of peppers, plums, potatoes, pumpkins and assorted gourds, raspberries, spaghetti squash, tomatoes, yellow squash, zucchini and lots of additional surprises! We will of course have beef, chicken, fish, lamb and pork as well as honey. Don’t forget the eggs, butter, cheese, jams and granola. We always have freshly popped kettle corn onsite and delicious handmade smoothies! Have you had the freshly squeezed lemonade? The beautiful mums are here so come and check them out!

See you there!
