Farmers market takes winter break

The Farm at St. Joe's is much quieter this time of year.

There will be no farmers market today and we will be on winter break until further notice. This is our planned winter break, which offers Farmer Dan a time to reflect on the past year and plan for the next.  Stay tuned to this blog for further updates.

Thank you for your loyal patronage at our little market this past year. It has been a successful growing season for us and Tilian Farm Development Center.

I’m starting to prepare for seedling production in the heated greenhouse at Matthaei Botanical Garden. Did you know that we start all of our vegetable plants from seed starting in late January?

Thank you, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and yours.

Did you know you can make superior “pumpkin pie” with butternut squash? Just replace pie pumpkin with butternut squash in your favorite recipe.

The 3pm – 5pm market will not be held until further notice.
