It’s finally October! It’s one of the best months of the year. Before long it will be Trick-or-Treat, so make sure to get outside and enjoy this beautiful time of year!
October 3rd will be our one month anniversary since we bought Huck’s Farm Market! It has been a very busy and exciting time for our family. We have really enjoyed getting to meet many of you, and we look forward to serving you, your family, and our wonderful community for years and hopefully generations to come! We have four kids between the ages of 6-16, so we have high hopes for the future of Huck’s Farm Market as well. Lol!
I’ve got lots to share about the market this week!
I’ll start with the outside…..We just got another big shipment of 8″ mums of every single color. There are plenty of orange, yellow, white, pineapple, red, pink and bronze ones. The pineapple looks so pretty! It’s variegated with yellow in the middle, and it fades into a pretty purple at the edge of the bloom.
Along with the mums, we got in some more kale, cabbage, and ornamental peppers. If you haven’t seen the ornamental peppers yet, you are in for a treat. They are adorable!! There are also plenty of sizes of pumpkins for decorating and carving. You will have to come and see how Debbie arranges everything outside….it looks so colorful and inviting!
Inside is a busy place as well!
We just received a shipment of Kennebec potatoes in both 50 lb. and 10 lb. bags. I didn’t know too much about Kennebec potatoes, so I was reading up about them. This type of potato has really become popular in recent years. It mashes well and has a thin skin, so it’s easy and quick to peel (which is a plus for busy families!). If you don’t want to peel them, they fry up perfectly and are very good for making homemade french fries. They store well, so it is economical to buy a large quantity, because they won’t go to waste! Kennebec potatoes also hold their shape while cooking, so they are perfect for soups, stews, and potato salad. Let us know what you think about them!
We have quart jars of cherry pie and apple pie filling for those of you who enjoy making your own pies. They are from Amish Wedding, and they are tasty.
We have an assortment of fry pies, cookies, pies, danishes, cinnamon rolls, breads, and brownies. We started to carry Homemade Buckeyes last week, and they have been a great addition to our baked goods. Jim brought home a blueberry pie for us to try this week. It was full of blueberries and had the best crust.
Caramel apples are getting stocked as we speak. They go quickly, so be sure to check in our cooler for one or two!
Apple cider is here! There is a variety of sizes from gallon down to pint.
Be sure to check out our daily soups on hucksmarket.com. We serve soups Monday-Friday. I don’t know about you, but I could eat soup every day for lunch.
We will be taking orders until October 8th for holiday hams and turkeys from Walnut Creek, Superior, and Sugardale. You can order by phone, fax, email (email@example.com), Facebook, or in person at the register. Thanks to those of you who have already ordered!
So glad that we can still get plenty of Ohio apples. There are 1/2 peck bags of Golden Delicious, McIntosh, and Red Delicious. There are also Cortland, Gala, and Honey Crisp.
Lastly, we have packaged up Baker’s Harvest Thin Wheat Crackers. They are very good. They are thin, crispy, and crunchy….just like a good cracker should be.
Here are our specials through Thursday of this coming week.
Off the Bone Honey Ham $4.99lb.
Lacey Baby Swiss cheese $4.99lb.
Online ordering for Sandwich Shop is available.
We hope you all have a wonderful week!
