The equinox marks the perfect time to both celebrate the harvest and prepare for the winter months to come.

This week marks the autumnal equinox and what better way to honor the changing of the seasons than taking a trip to the Market? As we shift from the hot, sultry days of summer to cooler, cozy days of fall (it's going to be a chilly afternoon today, so be sure to dress warm), the equinox marks the perfect time to both celebrate the harvest and prepare for the winter months to come.

The appearance of gourds, and fall veggies makes this fact undeniable and, in our opinion, very exciting. Just in case you haven't yet sipped some of Hugo's hot chocolate yet or tasted Giannis pumpkin cake, here are some ways to get cozy with fall the market way!

As the season changes so does the food on our table.  Discover an abundant selection of autumn’s most glorious things from our community Market. You can find delicious winter squash in all shapes, sizes, and colors at 4E Green Farm and Ann Marie’s Farm Stand. Delicata squash is a long cylindrical squash with a creamy color and green stripes. And its skin is so tender you don't have to peel! Combine delicata squash with maple syrup in this recipe

Be sure to stop by and meet our friends from the Setauket Harbor Task Force this afternoon. And mark your calendars for Setauket Harbor Day on Saturday, October 1.

NEW AUTUMN HOURS!  The days are getting shorter; mark your calendar for October 7th which is the date we will be changing our Market hours so you don’t have to shop in the dark and we can all be packed up before the sun sets.  As of October 7, the NEW Market hours will from 2 - 6pm.

We have so many wonderful things planned and happening for this fall. Follow along on our Facebook or Instagram pages for our most current updates.

See you Friday and happy gardening!
