Vendor Roster for October 22nd

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!

Here’s a selection of what our vendors will be bringing this week:

Simplicity Gardens is as crowded as ever. Customers mill about, eyeing the sizeable strawberries and multi-colored cherry tomatoes. Highlights this week are the smooth-skinned Socrates Cucumbers and the huge roots of ginger, whose season is coming to an end.

Nectar Cafe is always popular. While the lattes and drinks are traditional, Nectar’s weekly highlight is the selection of latte art adorning your warm beverage. Latte art comes in the form of faces, animals, or shapes – now Halloween themed!

Poverty Ridge Cranberries debuts this week at the market! Besides all the fresh cranberries you can eat, they offer tangy Cranberry Orange Chutney, as well as their highlight: heavenly Cranberry Pico de Gallo. Come out to meet and support these young farmers in their first ever cranberry harvest!

King’s Raven Winery recently produced their second largest harvest ever. If you swing through the King’s Raven tent, you’ll be treated to a train of samples along with a brief description of the uniqueness of each. The highlight here is the Sweet Raven Sun, which is a combination of five white blends: Phoenix, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, and Riesling.

Spice of Africa always tickles passing nostrils. Be sure to check out the Veggie Curry and Greens dish. Spice of Africa’s highlight every week, however, is the Ethiopian plate. It’s a delicious gluten free meal that showcases Ethiopian red lentil dip.

Fressen Artisan Bakery exhibits pastries and grains galore. Don’t miss the Filbert Bread – great for French toast! – or the Lemon Lavender pastry, of which there is a limited supply!

T Bee S brings some sweetness to the market. Based in Sherwood, T Bee S specializes in honey production. There is a plethora of flavors to sample. Try the Pumpkin honey, or if you’re brave enough, the Mystery flavor – which contains seven different tastes.
