We returned from our family trip, an extended summer in sunny Southern Oregon, to the rituals of shorter darker days. Get the kids in layers before heading out, light a fire in the morning and keep a log on through the day, socks, dinner at dark, no berries to munch while one walks, but lots of apples, the structure of school… The bread dough and the steps we take throughout the bake need to adjust in yet another shift in season. It’s all the balancing moment to moment that keeps us on our toes, dancing through the days.
Okay so we’re really excited to start up at Sunnyfield Farm again, such a sweet and welcoming place to gather and support good local food with island folks (and their many adoring fans and visitors. We appreciate you making this market a part of your week and walking that trek up the drive.
We will be doing markets in the fall and winter every other week. So get the goods while we’ve got them… here’s what you’ll find.
