Share your favorite recipes with the community.
“Food is so primal, so essential a part of our lives, often the mere sharing of recipes with strangers turns them into good friends. That’s why I love this community.”
People commune around food every day. What better way to unite the community than to share our favorite recipes? Send us your best market recipes – along with your name and your neighborhood – to be shared with the market community. Then prepare for the release of our market recipe archive this winter where you will be able to see everyone’s market recipes in one place.
Make sure to stop by the market this Saturday or Tuesday to pick up your fall produce. The harvest season is quickly coming to a close as the temperatures begin to drop. Stock up on squash in the next few weeks for the months to come (the market will be open through the end of October).

Vote for the market TODAY!
We are happy to announce that the Midtown Farmers Market’s application for a WedgeShare grant has been selected to appear on this year’s WedgeShare ballot! This October, all member-owners of the Wedge Community Co-op have the opportunity to decide which organizations will receive support, so if you are a member we could use your help.
A WedgeShare grant would help to support the SNAP-EBT (food stamps) token program that enables customers using SNAP benefits to purchase fresh, healthful food from local vendors at the Midtown Farmers Market. The grant would help to fund the vendor training, market-day staffing, card-terminal-processing costs, and the extensive outreach the program requires in order to be successful. It would also support an outreach organizer position that would expand the market’s capacity to promote the program in the community.
The SNAP-EBT program will make healthful food more accessible to low-income communities served by the Midtown Farmers Market. If you are a Wedge member-owner, you can vote for the market today! The WedgeShare Committee will approve recipients in early November, and the Wedge Board of Directors will approve recipients and grants in early December.
