Some of our vendors and the Sunny Side Food Truck will be at Pumpkin Patch this year. There will be a wide variety of Food Trucks and festival food as well as live music, booths from local organizations and lots of activities for the whole family.
Enjoy these beautiful fall days by coming out to the College Hill Farm Market Thursdays from 3:00-6:30 p.m. We have two more outside markets before a few of our vendors will move inside to the College Hill Coffee Company. Local produce is still available and abundant. Last week may have seen the last of the sweet corn for this season, but there should still be green beans, tomatoes, melons, greens, lettuce, onions, garlic, potatoes, beets, carrots, and as always eggs and meat. Shadeau bread, vegan cookies, crafts from J.B. Creations and hand made soaps will also be available.

Sunny Side Food Truck will be back with their burgers, BLTs, egg sandwich and weekly specials as well as cold drinks. Stop by for a snack or dinner as you shop this week.
Janet Beck creates jewelry, tutus, seasonal decorations, children’s toys and much more. She was hoping to be with us all season, but she was unable to be with us most of the summer. Stop by these last two markets and stop by her booth at the Pumpkin Patch Festival.

With the cooler weather, we are starting to see fall lettuce, greens and kale as well as squash. There is still beans, sweet corn, melons, tomatoes, beets, zucchini, potatoes and onions. As always we will have artisan breads, vegan cookies, meats, eggs, and hand-crafted soaps.
Favorite Salad recipes from the market
We had wonderful food demonstrations this year at the market and many of you have asked for the recipes. Chef Marcotte created these two salads from main ingredients available at our market–give them a try!
Stop by to enjoy a snack or dinner from the Sunny Side Brunch Food Truck from 3:30-6:30 this Thursday. They have cold drinks and fantastic grilled cheese, egg sandwiches, BLT’s, and maybe even serve their crab cake sandwiches–go on Sunny Side Brunch Facebook page and tell them to bring their signature crab cakes! Their menu is reasonably priced and their produce is fresh and local. They cook everything right there on the spot! Food trucks will come to College Hill as long as we patronize them so come on out and give them a try.

Fall Produce and more
Our two largest produce vendors have high tunnels and will be producing well into winter. Our Harvest and Back Acres still have tomatoes, melons, beans and other summer produce and are starting to see some fall squash. As soon as it gets cooler they will again have lettuce and spinach and other greens. Back Acres also has eggs, cheese, and meats every week at the market. As always, we will have fresh backed goods, vegan cookies and beautiful hand crafted soap products.
Goodbye to Seeders and Feeders and North Oaks Farm
These two fine produce vendors will probably not be back again this season. They are smaller farmers and their summer gardens are not producing as they were. Thanks for being loyal vendors at the our market. See you next year!
Come to the College Hill Farm Market for fresh, local produce for your Labor Day picnic! Tomatoes are at their prime, so think about caprese salad, tabouli, BLTs, tomato sandwiches or making home made pasta sauce! There should also be lots of sweet corn, beans, peppers, zucchini, onions, garlic, beets, melons and a wide variety of heirloom and hybrid tomatoes.
We also have vegan cookies, baked goods, soap products, meats, and eggs.
Food Demonstration This Week
This week will be the last food demonstration of this market season. At 4:00, Chef Rhonda Marcotte will create a pan-roasted corn salad with tomatoes and feta and a black bean salad with tomatoes. Stop by to watch this creative chef and conjure up some great dishes. Once you have sampled them, you will want to try them yourself! Her food truck, Sunny Side Brunch, will be back at the market on September 8th.
The Market is open into October
While market activities wind down after Labor Day, the market is open every Thursday from 3-6:30 well into October depending on the weather. Our vendors are starting to have fall products such as apples and butternut squash so stop by every week to see what is in season.
