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

And while you’re shopping, think about picking up some apple cider, so when all you witches, superheroes and ghosts are tired after a night of tricks and treats, you can put your feet up and enjoy a cup of hot apple cider.

Hot Apple Cider

Servings: 6


  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 6 whole allspice berries
  • 1 orange peel, cut into strips
  • 1 lemon peel, cut into strips


hot apple cider 10.30.13Pour the apple cider and maple syrup into a large stainless steel saucepan.

Place the cinnamon sticks, cloves, allspice berries, orange peel and lemon peel in the center of a washed square of cheese cloth; fold up the sides of the cheesecloth to enclose the bundle, then tie it up with a length of kitchen string. Drop the spice bundle into the cider mixture.

Place the saucepan over moderate heat for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the cider is very hot but not boiling.

Remove the cider from the heat. Discard the spice bundle. Ladle the cider into big cups or mugs, adding a fresh cinnamon stick to each serving if desired.
