Pumpkins, corn stalks, sugar cane, and hay bales have all arrived. Mr. Charlie Gibson brought us our first delivery of sugar cane and some beautiful Indian corn and corn stalks out of Walnut Hill today.
Miss Duch has been assembling the corn stalks into nice bundles ready to accent any fall display. She has also been schooling us on how easy it is to plant sugar cane. Many people recall eating sugar cane in their childhood and they are excited to see it available. It also is a beautiful addition to any fall display. It is an easy plant to start and grow if you get a healthy stalk. We happen to have plenty. A new plant can be sprouted from each joint. You can get several new plants from one stalk!
Chef Doug Janousek is going to have to reschedule the demo this Saturday. He is planning a surprise dish utilizing some Alabama grown fall squashes, persimmons and apples. He is a bit under the weather and felt it best to reschedule. We look forward to seeing him when he is better.
We have some purple hull peas available at the market. We look forward to getting some cream peas and corn now from Steve’s Farm this coming Monday. I am sorry it won't be ready in time for the weekend. Steve taste test his corn for sweetness. It is almost there. We do have eggplant in stock from Steve’s Farm.
We always have a good variety of mushrooms which we get 3 times a week out of Quincy, Florida. This week we added the oyster mushroom to this weeks selection. We have oyster, crimini, shiitake, portabello and white domestic mushrooms available year round.
We just restocked our new favorite hummus from the Hummus Lady. Pumpkin Hummus, you can get it two ways, sweet or savory. These are seasonal items. We need to enjoy them for the short time they will be available. My favorite is the savory, but the sweet pumkin hummus is very popular.
Ray Flowers has squash blossoms available. We will be getting local yellow squash and zucchini through Ray very soon. Some of our Chef’s like to stuff and deep fry squash blossoms. Squash blossoms are delicate and we have them cut to order. They are only available for a short period of time. If anyone is interested please send us an email and we will contact you and make arrangements. We sell them for $1.00 per blossom if anyone is interested. Ray's Farm is located in Summerdale, Alabama. He is also bringing us our local okra.
