The following was taken from a press release provided to Medfield Patch.
The final week for the Medfield Farmers Market is today Thursday, Oct. 11 from 2 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on the grounds of the First Parish United Universalist Church at 26 North Street.
Langwater and Wards Berry Farms have been faithful vendors serving customers with the finest, fresh produce weekly. There will be plenty of late summer greens this week including kale, rainbow chard, baby bok choy, arugula, and spinach. Also as fall approaches there will be a rainbow of winter squash varieties, from the farm favorite delicata, to the deep dark green acorn squash and the beautiful buff butternuts.
Sweet and crunchy local apples: Macouns, Honeycrisps, Cortlands for baking, and the always popular MacIntoshes will be available as well.
Although this will be the final day in Medfield for these vendors, their products are available later into fall and winter months at their farm stands in Sharon and Easton. Check out their websites for specials of the season.
The pumpkin fields at the farms have performed well this season. Langwater advertises that their carving pumpkins are weighing in at a modest 10-25 lb each and for sugar pie pumpkin, also plentiful, they can thank a balanced mix of rain and sun over the past 2 months that has had them ripening on schedule .
Also featured at the weekly market is Big Sky bakery with a variety of artisan breads including: an English muffin bread for breakfast and multi grain breads for anytime. There is also Garden Farms, the owner of which makes all her own jams, jellies, mustards and relishes from only the freshest ingredients with no preservatives. They are unusual because many have a touch of spice, often chili pepper so faint that is difficult to identify. She is now taking orders for gift baskets for the holidays and has samples to see and to taste. Annie B’, also a regular this season, makes many of the honey products and has fresh bottled honey right from her own hives in R.I. and, last but not least, Wild Daisy has the best smells at the market with her handmade soaps and her insect repellent that smells like lavender and is non-toxic.
Thanks to all these vendors that have supplied Medfield with such a variety of products all summer. First Parish appreciated the efforts of all those non-profit organizations that also took time to participate in the market and looks forward to a great market again next year.
