FINAL FARMERS MARKET
OF THE SEASON

Our local farmers and growers
came together one last time of the year,
for a special pre-Christmas farmers market.

It was chilly (brrrrrr!), but Schlafly Bottleworks
provided a sheltered area outside their brewery
to offer a winter bounty of seasonal produce
and products for holiday shoppers and chefs.

There was a surprising bounty of late season produce:

o  Fresh cut kale, chard and spinach
o  'Purple haze" carrots
o  'Romanesco' cauliflower (it's fractal, man, fractal!)
o  Radishes, turnips and potatoes (oh my)
o  Tiny brussell sprouts (my fave!)
o  Fresh cracked Missouri pecans
o  Wood fired wheat and rye breads
o  Free range eggs 

Thank you local farmers.
(We love supporting you.)
