This week at the Market

Daylight Saving Time ends tomorrow. Enjoy that extra hour of sleep and remember that market still opens at 9-even if your body feels like it’s 10. Fun fact about DST: Coldplay’s Chris Martin is the great-great-grandson of William Willett, who popularized the notion of daylight savings in 1907.

Berry Brook Farm has brussels sprouts on the stalk which provides a wonderful task for idle hands during dinner preparation. Snapping the sprouts is awfully therapeutic and a perfect activity for an early dinner guest. For tips on choosing, storing, and cooking brussels sprouts, take a look at this newly minted guide by Alison Roman for the The New York Times

If you’re starting to meal plan for Thanksgiving, check out this brussels sprouts and chestnuts in a brown butter sauce recipe. It’s a strong contender for best side.  Stay in Turkey day planning mode and bring your knives for sharpening. You don’t want to ruin the big reveal by spending hours hacking away at your bird with a dull knife. Make sure to also stock up on olive oil from Kontoulis. This will be their last visit of the season- they’re off to Greece on Tuesday for olive harvesting.

It’s not too late to order you free-range, hormone and antibiotic-free bird from Southtown. You can also put in your pie orders with the Pie Lady & Son: go for the classic pumpkin or pecan or you can spice it up with an apple, pear, and walnut crumble. You should also stop by La Petite Occasion for some artisanal and unique sweets like caramel apples and cider caramels.

Tomorrow we’re getting a late-in-the-season addition to the prepared foods line-up. Anthi’s Greek Food is bringing their well regarded fare to the Rivertowns. People particularly rave about their spanakopita, moussaka, and baklava. Try it for yourself.

We have Irvington author John Duvall reading from his new children’s book The Great Spruce, so bring the kids.

See you at the market!
