Market Updates                      
Although there are only five markets left thisjimmy and meliisa's little one riding on a dolly season, the market is as full as ever!

October is a great month at the market as we can still find summer favorites such as tomatoes, peppers, and the lovely eggplant, and at the same time we can begin to enjoy fall favorites like sweet potatoes, a huge array of squash, apples, pears, and more. Did you see the celery at the market last week?!

If you're looking for an opportunity to taste it all, consider joining us for lunch this Saturday. Chefs Anthony Cafiero and Greg Mistell are cooking up a big harvest meal to support our Fresh Funds Program. The salmon will be cured on-site and the pasta will be made fresh just before you eat. Delicious!

Crista will be at the market this weekend and next, painting the faces of young and old alike. We're looking forward to another great market this weekend and hope you are too.

See you at the market!

anthony making pastaThe Hollywood Farmers Market introduced the Fresh Funds Program this year to increase the buying power of Oregon Trail (SNAP) customers at the market using grant funds from New Seasons Market. The good problem
we've encountered is that the program has been 400 percent more popular than we had expected, and we need more funds!

To help continue the Fresh Funds pProgram through the end of the market season, this Saturday, October 23rd, Chef Anthony Cafiero of Tabla Mediterranean Bistro and Chef/Owner Greg Mistell of Fleur de Lis Bakery & Cafe will cook for us!

They're offering this exceptional lunch (more or less depending on the harvest that day!) using market-fresh
ingredients garnered from the market just hours before they'll be arranged on the plate:

Persephone Farm raddichio, cured salmon, Alsea Acre Alpines Feta

chitara pasta with Peak Forest wild mushroom, Sweet Briar lardons, Olympic Provisions shaved charcuterie, tarragon

poached pear tarts with Wandering Aengus cider sauce

This menu is not to be missed -- Anthony and Greg are using some of the best ingredients the Market has to offer to create this ambitious menu that includes on-premise curing and smoking, fresh pasta, and more!
