Thanks for a Great 2013 Farmers Market Season!

A Big Thank You…

to our farmers and vendors for the variety and quality of food and specialty items; to our customers for making the Farmers Market a regular part of your weekly shopping; and to everyone for your enthusiasm and support, even on super-hot days, rainy days, and shorter-daylight days!

We look forward to seeing everyone again in May. We’re already rolling up our sleeves and working on ideas and events to make our fifth season the best yet. We’ll keep you posted!

Three More Markets Before Thanksgiving!

While you shop at the Media Farmers Market the next few weeks, don’t just shop for the week, look ahead to the holidays and winter. Stock up on non-perishables and on foods you can prepare and freeze, carrying the bounty of the Farmers Market with you right through the cold months ahead! In fact, check out “3 Ways to Freeze Butternut Squash“—raw, cooked or puréed—to get you started!


Bacon Waffles!
Waffatopia is launching the Maple Bacon Caramelized Belgian Waffle!  Made with real bacon, and natural maple flavor, this is the fourth flavor in Waffatopia’s lineup. This also begins Waffatopia’s Market 12-packs, pre-filled with three of each variety (Cinnamon & Vanilla, Chocolate Stuffed, Punkin Spice and Maple Bacon). Perfect for a wonderful holiday treat or as great party items—but quantities are limited. Waffatopia will be at the Market this Thursday, and again at the last Market of the season on November 21. To ensure Market goers can get a 12-pack, customers can also pre-order by emailing to guarantee availability.
Waffatopia will also begin online shipping by the end of November, so you don’t have to do without over the winter!  For more info, and to sign up for notifications, go to
