Happy Labor Day!

For many, Labor Day signals the end of summer. The days are growing shorter and the kids are back to school. These seasonal changes are bringing different crops to the market. One of the best parts of shopping local is eating seasonally, and living this change along with the farmers as you set your dinner table.

One happy harbinger of fall are apples, pears, and cider! Pumpkins, winter squash, root vegetables, and fall greens are also another sure sign of autumn in Ohio.

Join us at the market and pick up these and other fresh fruit and vegetables, along with pastured meat and eggs, baked goods, flowers, crafts, and more. Celebrate the last tastes of summer and the first tastes of fall with us!


Not to worry! The market continues through October!

    Eating Seasonally:
    Roasted Chicken and
    Butternut Soup

    med106010_1010_rst_chicken_butternut_vert

    Ingredients:
    • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
    • 1 med. butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and chopped into medium-sized cubes
    • 1 sm. yellow onion, chopped
    • 2 Tbs. olive oil
    • Coarse salt and ground pepper
    • 4 c. low-sodium chicken broth
    • 1/4 tsp. ground cumin
    • 1/4 tsp. ground coriander
    • 1-2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
    • Fresh cilantro (optional)
    Directions:

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a roasting pan or rimmed baking sheet, toss together chicken, squash, onion, and oil; season with salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer and roast until squash and chicken are cooked through, about 30 minutes.

    Transfer chicken to a plate and let cool. Transfer squash and onions to a medium pot and add broth, cumin, and coriander. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. With a potato masher or back of a wooden spoon, mash some vegetables until soup is thick and chunky. Discard skin and bones from chicken (or save for broth); cut meat into small pieces and add to soup. Stir in lemon juice; season to taste with salt and pepper. To serve, top with fresh cilantro.

    Serve warm with a toasted crusty bread, and shaved Parmesan cheese. To save, transfer cooled soup to a freezer bag or airtight container and freeze, up to 3 months. Thaw, and then reheat. Add garnishes just before serving.
