Freight House Farmers' Market

Saturday morning we headed down to Farmers' Market with empty bellies. If you've never been, be prepared for samples galore, as well as yummy food vendors.
First stop, to get my nephew and his pet moose a lemon shake up

We wandered around in search of delicious apples and fresh produce, of which there is plenty. Plus, you get to support local farmers. ugh, I know that sounds like liberal hippie drivel and I am neither. But seriously, do it.
Here is a beautiful gala apple. I like to cut these up and add them to salads and sandwiches. Try toasting Muenster cheese with apple slices and cinnamon on a piece of sourdough.

Inside of the Freight House, they have lots of baked goods. After a sample, the lime bars were callin my name.

I have no idea who made them, but their booth is in the southeast corner. We also sampled some breads, salsas, and candy.

Back outside, we had to head over to the BBQ stand. It's a shame these people don't have a restaurant, because we would become regulars.

Last time, I had the juiciest smoked chicken I have ever tasted. This time we got the sampler with both chicken and ribs. Yea, it was about 10 a.m. What of it?

They bring out this huge smoker and smoke the meats right there, every morning. It's never too early for BBQ!

Lastly, we rode the Egg Roll Express into Shishkabob city. This stand also does not represent a local restaurant, which is a shame. Richie got a kabob for $4. I have no knowledge of Asian food whatsoever, but it looks like pork to me.

We didn't forget about Tater Tot. He got a doggy brownie from Tailz er Waggin' which he split with Echo and Smoke. They all thought it was "just terrific." I really wanted to try it, I mean, it's a brownie with peanut butter frosting. Unfortunately it does not smell as good as it looks.

In my opinion, this is the best Farmers' market in the area- it has the most variety and least hippies. Saturdays from 8am- 1pm and Tuesdays from 3-6 pm. Saturdays are much busier, but the variety is greater.

  1. Thanks for the heads up, Sarah. I'm going to have to try both of these places next Saturday morning. Also, I hear there's a lady who makes miniature cupcakes that are awesome. I think she's at the Freight House farmer's market.
