Fall is a fabulous time to enjoy cooking on the grill! In our next Facebook Live event, Ashley Uphoff from The Bluffs Grass-Fed Beef will share tips on grilling the perfect flank steak while Elise Carey from EJ Terra will cook up a side dish to complement the meat. Tune in on Monday, September 21 at 7:00 p.m. for fall cooking ideas with two of our producer-owners.
After fine-tuning your grilling skills with our cooking demonstration, be sure to come by our next Pop-Up Market because we will be featuring that very same beef from the The Bluffs. The Market is on Tuesday, September 22 from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. Once again we will be in the parking lot behind the Purple Carrot Market Building (53 E Broadway) with four of our producer-owners offering fresh, local foods.
Something special about this Pop-Up Market: the Purple Carrot will have an apple press so that you can press your own apple cider. Just bring a jug or container in which to bring your cider home.
Need some apples to press? Ron from the Foothills Orchard (Owner #324) says they will have bushels of Sweet Tango, Cortland, and Honeycrisp apples. Some of the apples are slightly damaged, but they will be perfect for pressing into cider and are ½-off the regular price. In addition to their beautiful apples, the Foothills Orchard will have a variety of squash (from blue hubbards to pumpkins) that serve double duty: they make wonderful fall décor as well as good eating. They also still have tomatoes (Roma, cherry, and heirloom varieties) and peppers (from sweet bells to the ultra-hot peppers). If you are looking for something special or need larger quantities, please contact Ron at 320-420-7622 for more information or to pre-order items.
Ashley & Ross Uphoff from The Bluffs Grass-Fed Beef will have steaks, roasts, ribs, ground beef, stew meat, and beef sticks as well as chickens and free-range eggs. Learn more about the Uphoffs and their Scottish Highland cattle with our producer profile below. All of their meats is in stock, so check out their order form to see all they have available.
Elise with EJ Terra (Owner #275) and Joelle (Owner #126) will bring a variety of jams and jellies, pickles, salsas, and salves. In addition, Elise will have her homemade soaps and Joelle will bring her pickled beets, corn relish, sauerkraut, dip mixes, herbal seasonings.
To help our community stay safe, we ask the everyone maintain proper social distance and remember their mask during our Pop-Up Market. Hand sanitation will be available and part of the apple pressing operation.
We look forward to seeing you at both events!
