Walking outdoors in December carries a special allure. Often, it is cold – but not frigid; damp – but not soaking wet; gray but crisp. It is nature – like a cat – beginning to curl up for the winter’s nap, fully fed and content. Much of what the Saratoga Farmers’ Market represents in its winter months interacts with this sense of nature. During December particularly, several farmers and vendors of handicraft items are offering special items that invite shoppers…
The holiday shopping season is upon us. But before you prepare to dive into the crowded shopping center parking lots, consider how the Saratoga Farmers’ Market might make holiday shopping a more affordable and localized experience. The market is kicking off the holiday season this Saturday with its regular vendors who offer an array of fresh produce, farm-raised meats and dairy products, and locally produced goods. In addition, several shorter-term vendors will be at the market between November and January,…
Hello my Foodie Friends! We hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! The Reardon family did some reminiscing this past weekend about Thanksgiving past. My wife Paula brought up a story about our time together before kids. That is when our one baby was our dog Bogie. He was named after Humphrey Bogart and he loved to roam between our house and our neighbors next door. This was before invisible fences and we didn’t have the money for a regular fence.…

Fresh and local defines the ethos of the farmers who bring their products each week to the Saratoga Farmers’ Market. That commitment presents an especially strong challenge to the farmers who raise turkeys for market customers, when one considers what it takes to sustainably raise a delicious turkey from birth to maturity. Bobby Chandler, of the Mariaville Mushroom Men and one of three vendors approved to offer turkeys at the Saturday market, puts it quite simply: “They’re big birds that…
Hello my Foodie Friends. Our pets, both past and present, give us unconditional love, make us laugh, and comfort us. Telling stories of those who touch your heart and make you laugh are part of celebrating our pet’s lives. Earlier this month, we lost our 14 year old Chocolate Labrador Retriever, Scarlett O’Hara. The week after her passing, one of our wonderful customers and I talked about the love, memories, and treasure of having a pet and of the emptiness…

When I visit the Saratoga Farmers’ Market, I see beautiful vegetables and fruits. I cannot resist taking a photograph. “Look at me. I’m pretty,” I imagine a red pepper or a striped delicata squash saying to me. “Take my picture.” And I do. Starting a food blog, My Saratoga Kitchen Table, created an excuse to visit the market and take photographs. I make a dish, arrange it on the table, take several photographs, select ones I like and post them…
