Weekly Newsletter #4 October 15-21, 2022

It is certainly starting to feel like fall outside. It’s had the nicest warm afternoons, but as soon as the sun starts to go down, it gets cold fast! Last night was the last home football for the Tigers, and many of the tigers teams are in tournaments, and doing wonderfully I must add! The school year is going so fast already. The end of the first nine weeks is next Thursday!

I was looking at the weather forecast, and it shows snow showers as a possibility for Tuesday! That’s awfully early! That makes me think of two old wives’ tales to predict what type of winter we will have (maybe you have already heard of these). The date that you see the first snowflakes is the number of times it will snow that winter. So, if we do get snow showers on the 18th of October, that would mean it is going to snow 18 times this winter! That will make some of you happy and some of you bummed out. The other one is to look at the colors of the willy worms. The brown bands are periods of warmer weather and the black is cold, snowy weather. The willy worms I have been seeing are brown at first, have a pretty thick black band, and then go back to brown again at the end. I guess we will see!

I’ve got some things that I’m pretty excited about to share with you this week about the market!

I always start outside, so I will continue to do that. Beginning Saturday, we are doing a BOGO (Buy One Get One) sale for our great big mums and hanging baskets. This includes our candy corn mums, tri color mums, and solid ones. Our hanging baskets come in all the mum colors that we all love! If you’ve been holding out to get one of these beauties, they are in full bloom, and you can get two for the price of one!

8″ mums are now $4.99.

Kale, cabbage, rudbeckia, celosia, and ornamental peppers are also Buy One Get One Free.

There are still a few bales of straw, in case maybe you need some to seed over a bare patch in your yard or want to warm up an outdoor pet’s shelter. Or even have some seating around a weekend bonfire. That sounds so fun!

It’s time to start thinking about carving pumpkins in a couple of weeks. So, we have plenty and will be getting some more. That’s one of my family’s favorite parts of October!

I have lots of new items to share inside this week as well!

Jim will be picking up another shipment of apples Saturday morning. He is able to get Jona Gold, Fuji, Cortland, McIntosh, Honey Crisp, Red Delicious, and Yellow Delicious. We have some packed up for you in 1/2 Peck bags, or you can bag a smaller or larger amount yourself.

We just got in another shipment of local, homegrown tomatoes! Some are still green if you want to make one last batch of fried green tomatoes! I think I will do that one night this week for supper! Jim said that the market will have local, homegrown tomatoes for several more weeks. Yay!

Walnut Creek Apple Cider has been coming in weekly in gallons, 1/2 gallons, and pints. In addition to that, we now also have Aspen Mulled Cider Spices so you can make your own! Imagine how your house would smell!

We just got in multi-colored gumballs and some more fall colored candy corn.

We now carry Walnut Creek bagels, English muffins, hot dog buns, and hamburger buns. Of course, we always have our delicious rolls, sub buns, and loaves of bread too. Check out the picture I took of our yummy cinnamon rolls!

Yogurt has arrived! We have all the favorites: peach, blueberry, strawberry, and raspberry. I got a text from a friend this morning who said “You got yogurt and it’s delicious” I can’t wait to try some.

We are also adding to our condiment area. Check out the Walnut Creek hot sauce, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, and steak sauce. We also have lots of mustards and sauces from Woeber’s. There is a lot to choose from to add flavor to your dishes!

If you haven’t tried the Walnut Creek bags of popcorn kernels, you really should! We made some popcorn at home over the stove twice last week for an evening snack, and it tastes so good with the Buttery Topping and the Popcorn Salt that is available to drizzle or sprinkle on top!

COMING SOON! Our bakers are going to be starting to make from scratch mini loaves of Banana Bread, Banana Nut Bread, and Pumpkin Bread. You will want to be on the look out for them! The small size makes a perfect snack and stays fresh longer!

On Saturday morning, I made a trip up to Columbus with my good friend, Beth, to get some crafts, candles, and country gifts for the market! It’s their Christmas Open House, and everything looked so pretty! I hope you like what we picked out! It will be stocked and ready to go on Sunday.

We are happy to announce that we are going to be offering some events and classes at Huck’s Farm Market. Our plan is to offer a wide variety, so keep watching for an event or a class that you think sounds interesting! This will give us a chance to get to know our customers better and have fun while doing it!

November 18th from 7:00-9:00 p.m.— Make your own Thanksgiving Table Centerpiece. This is something I have always wanted to learn to do! Merilee Burton has 30 years of experience making arrangements and doing flowers for weddings, and the things she creates are amazing! She is going to teach us how to make a live floral centerpiece inside a pumpkin. Please save the date for Friday, November 18th from 7:00-9:00 p.m.! We have room for 16 participants. The cost is $55 which includes everything needed to make the centerpiece and some light refreshments. The market will also be open for browsing as well! This will be a prepaid class, so Merilee knows how many people to plan for. Please sign up and pay by Friday, November 11th to have a fun, night out!

Honey Ham $4.99 lb.

Yellow Mild Cheddar $4.99 lb.

Weekly Newsletter for October 7-13 (Specials at the bottom)

Hello! It’s another beautiful fall day as I’m writing up our Huck’s Farm Market weekly newsletter! If I had to guess, I would say that this is going to be the prettiest fall that we have had in a few years. I love all the trees as they change color, but my very favorite would have to be the bright orange-red!

Our market is in full swing for fall! I’ll talk about outside first….

For those of you still needing to decorate your front porch or stoop, it’s not too late! (I just got my porch done this past week!) The mums are really in full bloom now, so you won’t have to wait for the pretty colors to come out. We still have some large candy corn mums (orange, yellow, and white tricolor), and there are also 8″ mums in every color you would want. There is still some rudbeckia, kale, cabbage, celosia, and asters. I mixed a couple of bright purple asters in with my mums at home, and it is such a pretty pop of color to go with the yellows, reds, and bronze that I chose.

Just a little note to keep in mind, the weekly forecast shows FOUR nights with temps in the 30’s. Tonight (Saturday), it’s supposed to get down to 34! We will be covering our flowers here at the market and at home as well just to be safe.

Decoration wise, we just got another shipment of 3 large bins of pumpkins. There are large sized ones, medium ones, and of course the smaller pie pumpkins. Believe it or not, pumpkins and gourds have been a little tricky to come by this season. We got a lot of rain over the summer, and that sometimes isn’t the best environment for the Cucurbit Family of plants. This plant family includes all of the varieties of squash, cucumbers, pumpkins, gourds, and melons.

You can also still find some straw bales, Indian corn, and corn shocks to dress up your outside. I actually hung two bunches of Indian corn on my red front door at home, because I didn’t have a fall wreath, and I like how it turned out!

Now heading inside…. The temperature has been so nice the last week, so we have been opening up the windows and doors to bring in some of that cool fall breeze!

Soups have been popular the last couple of weeks! We are working on adding more kinds of soup to our rotation. You can always check daily on hucksmarket.com to see what soups are on.

Apple cider, homegrown Ohio apples, and caramel apples are all available, as well as a variety of produce. There are still some homegrown local tomatoes and we received some more Kennebec potatoes.

The bakery is one of the highlights of the market! Did you know that we offer pie by the slice or by the half? If you see one you would like, but don’t want the whole pie, please just ask, and we can cut it however you would like!

Each week, we have been trying to add to our grocery inventory. Some of the things we are adding have been at Huck’s before, but these are items new to us since taking over. Here is a list of new items in the goodies section: dark chocolate almonds (YUM!), toasted corn nuggets (plain and ranch), sour gummy worms, and Claeys Old Fashioned Hard Candies (Cinnamon, Root Beer, Horehound, Wild Cherry). If you are wondering what Horehound tastes like, it is a mix between black licorice and root beer.

If you would like to see us offer a product or item that we don’t carry right now, please let us know. It’s not a 100% guarantee, but we will try our very best to accommodate your requests! Chances are if you would like to see us carry it, others would too!

Which reminds me….someone asked if we were going to be getting Bahama Mama German Recipe Smoked Sausages back in stock, and how they are her husband’s favorite. We had been trying every week to order these, and they finally came! Jim thinks they are more seasonable, so this shipment may be the last until springtime!

Also, on that note, we have been asked by several customers if we had ever thought about offering a wrap for our gluten-free customers. I’m happy to say that we just got in some gluten-free wraps at the sandwich shop as well as bags of Snyder’s gluten-free mini pretzels and pretzel sticks. Let us know what you think of them!

German Bologna $3.99 lb.

Specials and Info for October 1-6

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 (hucksfarmmarket@gmail.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 just got a delivery of Farm Fresh Eggs. There are 12 dozen, and they come every Saturday. Nothing tastes better than a farm fresh egg!
