Fall colors are popping up at the market and we’re all enjoying the transition to different produce. Peppers and eggplant are hanging on, but we know their days are limited as cooler night temperatures become more frequent. As the days get shorter, our bodies will start seeking the nourishment of root veggies and deep greens. Check out our blog post for a reflection on this transition and a recipe for Curried Butternut Squash Soup.
Also, we’re excited for two upcoming events at the market! Next Saturday, October 27, we’ll host our annual Vendor Halloween Costume Contest. We encourage you and your kiddos to come dressed in your favorite Halloween outfits, too! And on November 10, we’re hosting our first annual Silent Auction to raise funds for some of your favorite market programs, including the Sprouts Kid’s Club, Double Bucks, and more. Save the date and come prepared to complete your holiday shopping while also supporting the market that you love.
Finally, as a reminder, below is our market schedule:
