As is evident, I like Eating Well magazine!! I can always find a tempting healthy recipe for whatever occasion or whim, I may need to fulfill. A simple dessert. Easy, light and healthy. Choose from an array of fruits available at the farmers market.

There are so many reasons to eat lots of fresh, crisp vegetables and fruit, especially locally grown, as we all know. Vibrant colors, aromatic, so fine to look at, the minerals and vitamins seem to jump out at you. You can taste them as you chew! Remember digestion starts in the mouth, so make sure to chew 50 – 100 times. That is difficult, you really have to concentrate, which means you take your time therefore perhaps it could be a weight loss technique! Naturally veggies have a high water content, so they fill you up and are low in calories so you can eat lots. Fruit does contain more calories and is a simple carbohydrate but imparts quite a lot of healthful benefits. It is much better to eat the whole fruit as opposed to juice because you have the benefit of the fiber. So apparently, as you will read in the article below, when you eat more fruit and veggies, 2 extra servings, you will notice a change in your skin….. you exhibit a healthy glow and we’re not talking radioactive! We’re talking happy skin, which is the largest organ of your body.

So, make sure to stop often and stock up on our fruit and veggies. Make your skin happy! Smile, you’re feel good, inside and out!
Autumn is a refreshing & invigorating month. As the leaves change colors and drift to the ground it signals the end of the market season for us. We have decided though, to set up for 2 more weeks, Oct 20 & 27th. That will be the end of our season for 2011.
The adjusted hours are now 4 – 6:30 pm do to the ever decreasing light, as time slips by.
Hope to see you there for the final weeks.
Last week was a rainy day for shoppers and vendors. This week will be chilly but hopefully dry! We continue to have our superb selection of produce, EGGS and baked goods. The RENMAN, may be there this week offering his magnificent soaps, lotions, oils and more.
Vendors will be offering our MARKET MONEY for shoppers to use next season in 2012. We hope to see you and THANK YOU for supporting us this year!!!! Perhaps we’ll have some surprises for the new year. Check in on our news here on the blog occasionally.
VA Farmers Market Week was celebrated 3 weeks ago. On August 11, our market offered a scavenger hunt, VA photo contest, “vote for your favorite vendor” as well as introducing our new game for kids and/ or adults… the market bean bag toss!! Customers could cast ballots for 2 weeks and the winner was announced last week. JOHN FAULKNIER, our primary produce vendor was voted the most favorite. He has been marketing for many years and is a cornerstone for the Earlysville Market so it is fitting that he is recognized as the ‘favorite‘. Congratulations to him and we thank all the customers who voted.
The market is in it’s 4th month of the season and we’re chugging along like a well oiled wheel! The weather though HOT, has cooperated in terms of the lack dangerous storms, thank goodness. We have experienced 100 degree days but not much rain and stormy weather. A plus for tent stability and safety!
