Join us this Saturday for the second-to-last Market of our outdoor season and stock up on lots of local fall produce to take home and store for these upcoming winter months! Freezing, canning, drying, and pickling are all wonderful ways to preserve the season’s bounty. For helpful tips on preserving pumpkins and winter squash, check out the University of MN extension website.

Remember, we open an hour later all Saturdays in October, so enjoy that extra hour of sleep!
