N E W S  / o c t o b e r 8
This Week . . .

. . .  the forecast for Saturday is for good weather. . . but you know what they say about New England weather. We won't complain about last week's rain - not only was it desperately needed, the weather has hardly made a dent in this year's market season. A big thank you to the hearty vendors who came to last week's market and of course to our loyal patrons who support the HFM.
     The Master Gardeners will occupy the CS&E tent this week. Stop by and hear what they have to say about putting your garden to "sleep" for the winter. Next week we look forward to welcoming artists from the
South Shore Art Center.
     Once one of the most maligned vegetables around, the now very popular Brussels sprouts can be found not only in homes but in fine restaurants everywhere - done a multitude of ways - steamed, broiled, braised, grilled, roasted and even fried. The above Brussels sprouts are from
Oakdale Farm.

Market Seen
