This Week 
This Saturday make sure to vote . . . not for national, state or local officials but for the HFM's best Halloween-costumed vendor. Cast your vote at the Friends of the Hingham Farmers Market tent. Winner wins a trophy and cash prize. Never knowing what to expect, Halloween is always great fun at the HFM! P.S. Market-goers are more than welcome to celebrate the day in costume as well. 
     This Saturday our friends from Whole Foods will be at the CS&E tent. Stop by and say hello.
     Next Saturday, November 5, All Paws In, a 4-H club for boys and girls who love their animals, will visit the market. More details next week.
     Pumpkins in the photo above are from Freitas Farm.

Kudos to HFM Vendors 
Congratulations to HFM vendor Robin Cohen, proprietor of Doves & Figs, who was recently named a winner of Yankee Magazine's "Editor's Choice Food Awards 2016." A favorite of the editors is the Straw Hat Chutney, loaded with golden raisins, candied ginger, a little vinegar and layers of spice; the chutney is multilayered and multitextured, a natural fit for goat cheese, lamb, turkey and cheddar cheese. See Yankee Magazine November/December 2016 or visit
     Also recognized,
Narragansett Creamery in the November 2016 issue of Coastal Living Magazine. Scroll below to read about their honor.
     We are so proud of our
HFM vendors!

Opening the Market
     Ben Howrigan, owner of the Vermont Syrup Company, opened last week's
     market. In operation and family owned since 1876, the maple products made by
     the company are 100 percent pure, certified organic and contain no additives,
     allowing the flavor and purity to speak for itself. Isn't this the perfect time of year
     to buy some of those wonderful maple products from the Vermont Syrup Company
     for holiday gifts? (Vermont Syrup Company will be back at the HFM November 5.)

; at bottom, loyal vendor Jeanette Mackenzie and beautiful fall offerings.  
Narragansett Creamery in the News
     Once again Narragansett Creamery is in the news. Featured in the November issue
     of Coastal Living Magzine, two of their cow's milk cheeses have been recognized:
     Crescendo and Divine Providence.
          Crescendo is a soft-ripened, rindless and spreadable cheese, made by hand in
     small batches in the tradition of the northern Italian regions of Piedmont and
     Lombardy. It has a tangy flavor and soft creamy texture. To fully enjoy, serve at
     room temperature on a crusty baguette with fig spread and local honey or fresh herbs
     and olive oil. Readers may recall that Crescendo was the 2015 American Cheese
     Society's 1st Place Winner for "Fresh Unripened Cow's Milk Cheese."
          The second cheese noted is Divine Providence, a natural-rinded, Gouda-style
     cheese with buttery, nutty flavors and a smooth, creamy texture. To have the best of
     this cheese, serve at room temperature. Include Divine Providence on a cheese
     board with local fruits, fig spread and honey or with caramelized onions in a
     grilled cheese sandwich. Use alone or with Narragansett's Atwells Gold for a
     lucious mac and cheese.

          Judy White, (above) Narragansett's representative to the HFM, adds: "The HFM
     is the perfect venue for Narragansett Creamery cheeses, spreads and yogurts as the
     customers are adventurous foodies! What I find most interesting are the number
     of children and young adults with highly-developed palates and opinions about
     cheese. They love to come by to try a sample or two and often make suggestions
     to their parents as to the cheeses they should buy!"
