Vendor Roster for September 24th

Montavilla Farmers Market vendors take pride in providing a unique, high-quality product that is grown, raised, harvested, gathered or produced locally for our community. We’re looking forward to a vibrant year, and hope to see you at the market soon!

Is your favorite farmer or producer missing from our lineup? Tell them you’d love to see them at Montavilla and to apply to be a vendor. We are still accepting applications for 2017. Check back often to see who’s coming!

Vendor Highlights for Sunday, September 24th:

Walking by The Hummus Stop is asking for trouble. The train of samples being offered simply cannot be refused; and once you’ve been lured in, it’s nearly impossible to leave. A barrage of flavors – Lemon, Artichoke, Roasted Red Pepper, Kalamata Olives and Chives, Vegetarian Stuffed Grape Leaves, Basil and Sundried Tomato – seems to fly to your fingertips before you’ve finished savoring the last bite. The highlighted Hummus flavors this week are Roasted Eggplant and Spicy Roasted Eggplant.

Fresh vegetables and fruits abound at Amaro’s Produce. Highlights on display are squash, cherry tomatoes, gargantuan golden delicious apples, and green tomatoes.

The Spear & Arrow tent offers a selection of ghee, or clarified butter. Ghee is nifty for several reasons. The first is that ghee is a lactose-free butter substitute, which some people with milk allergies or lactose intolerance find can be easy on the digestive tract. Second, ghee is great for cooking at high temperatures. And finally, some ghee can have a shelf life of 100 years! Spear & Arrow’s newer flavors are Indian Spice and Shallots & Thyme.

Shoppers flock to the combined stalls for Simplicity Gardens and Denison Farms in such great numbers that it’s nigh impossible to approach for half an hour. While the sweet bell peppers and equally colorful cherry tomatoes are a hit, and the white onions are the size of softballs, the true highlights this week are the ginger, shallots, and organic grapes.

FarmCart: Winding the season down, FarmCart is still cranking out breakfast biscuit sandwiches as fast as the orders come in. FarmCart’s golden biscuits, stacked in a high tower on a plate – along with irresistible wafts of sizzling bacon – have been a weekly highlight all summer. Don’t miss them this Sunday for their last day!
