by:Barbara Bennett Parsons Thank you so much!!!! Our Autumn Festival/Customer Appreciation Day was a resounding success! The weather was lovely ( not too hot, not too cold), the food was scrumptious, and a good time was had by all. Thanks to the rain 10 days ago, we once again have fresh picked Chanterelle Mushrooms available at $10.00 per lb. At this moment we also are fortunate to have fresh line caught filleted Tuna at $11.99 per pound. If you’re interested in canning, this is the way to go- already skinned and boned, ready to plunk into jars and process. We've been grilling the tuna this week- add a bit of honey and molasses, a splash of hot sauce, and you’re in competition with the best chefs on the country! Honeycrisp Apples and Fuji Apples came in this morning, along with an abundance of other fresh organic produce- our prices for organic food is actually less than grocery store prices of chemically farmed products. As a Farmers Market, it is our goal to ensure healthy, sustainable, and utterly delicious food for our community. It is our stance that every economic bracket is entitled to quality choices for their meals. In our grandparents time, pure unadulterated crops were the norm. We want you to feed your families with the same confidence! Autumn has definitely arrived at the Hoquiam Farmers Market! On her very first day she delivered over one thousand pounds of the prettiest home grown Pumpkins you’ll ever see.
