Cool weather's got us thinking about greens and salads again. If you do it right, you have a delicious, easy meal that's really heathy, too!
Broadfork Farm has some beautiful salad mix, all ready to combine with your favorite ingredients. What about a fall-themed salad with Agriberry's asian pears, sliced or diced and sprinkled over the fresh greens?
Add a few toasted pecans from Good Health Herbs and some crumbled goat cheese. Dress with some of the great olive oil and vinegar from our list. Olive Oil Taproom is always a good bet!
There you have it! A sweet, crunchy, creamy, tangy, delicious fall salad that will fill you up and boost your health, too!
It's never too early to think about pie! River City Bakery wanted us to give you a little "heads-up" about holiday orders, so you'll be sure to have plenty of desserts on Thanksgiving!
River City Bakery is already gearing up to make a plethora of pies--and you can pre-order! If you purchase now (or in the coming weeks), your pie will arrive in your Wednesday, November 27th order--just in time for the Thanksgiving meal! Be sure to choose the preorder option if you want the pie(s) for the holiday.
Regular pie orders are still available too, of course!
This year, Colleen is baking up several different pies for your holiday delectation. Choose from pumpkin [pictured above], maple pecan, blackberry, apple, and apple crumble. Yum!
If you're looking for sweet potatoes or potatoes, Thistledowne Farm has what you need. (And if you're still craving summer squash, Christy's got that, too!)
Manakintowne Specialty Growers is still offering juicy, fresh tomatoes. Take advantage of them now!
Haashrooms has all kinds of great mushrooms this week--criminis, shitakes, and even maitake mushrooms (known as Hen of the Woods). Plus more!
Maybe you want to have one last family cookout before it really get cold. Or maybe you're looking to welcome cold nights with some delicious braised beef. We can help!
Anything from Salsas Don Sebastian will liven up your meal. Whether it's one of their fabulous fresh salsas or the hallequitas, it's bound to please.
For a cookout, try the hot Italian sausage grillers from Commonwealth Market Growers. Or the beef burger from Burkeville-Waverly Farms. For a white-meat option, try the ground turkey breast from Mickey&Ann's Farmette.
The grassfed bone-in chuck roast from ThorneBrook Farms is sure to meet your "comfort food" qualifications!
Truly Scrumptious sent us a reminder that Mela will be out of the country right before Thanksgiving, so members should order their sides during the first two weeks of November and pop them in the freezer to make sure that they have them for the big day.
(We'll remind you again later!)
