Fall brings new food, art, and great causes
Lots are great things are happening this weekend (and in the weeks to come).
First, it's going to be our last Saturday for a while at the Wooster Square farmers' market. But we're going out in style. It's the last week for tomatoes and summer squash, so get your Greg (egg, cheese, and zucchini) and Bobby (egg, pesto, and tomato) and now and enjoy the last of the summer crops. However, the great thing about using Connecticut-grown foods is that the change of seasons also brings new foods. (More about that below.) We hope to be back at Wooster Square eventually, but in the meantime, we'll have a new Saturday location soon and we'll announce it as soon as it's finalized. (If you aren't following us on Twitter and Facebook, do it now so you'll be the first to know.)
Next, on Sunday, join us in Westville for a big day of food and art. We'll be XL Steam Roller Printmaking, part of Citywide Open Studios. It's happening on Central Avenue from 11 to 6. By why not start your day earlier at the farmers' market at Edgewood Park and then walk over for some live art making and a delicious sandwich? Plus, pick up a new Farm Belly t-shirt! We'll have them for sale this weekend.
Looking ahead, next Saturday, we'll be in Bethany for an event benefiting the Red Skye Foundation, a terrific organization that helps people through equine and animal therapy. Read more about Fall at the Farm here.
Specials and Changes
The Abe Froman
Ham, egg, and blue cheese sandwich on a bun
Stone Gardens Farms has some of the tastiest ham around, pasture raised and locally cured. We only have a small amount, so there will be a limited number of this sandwich on Saturday. You don't need a reservation to try it, but you do have to get here early.
Veggie patty of mixed CT-grown veggies and beans, served with lettuce, tomato and onion
Our veggie patty gets a fall makeover! We've changed up the mix for fall and added roasted cauliflower, broccoli and butternut squash, plus eggplant, corn, peppers, leeks, kale, garlic, onions, beans, and cornmeal.
Rufus Ruffcut and Sawtooth
Our own home fries made with the freshest potatoes.
Name TBA Egg-and-Mushroom Sandwich
Scrambled eggs with sauteéd mushrooms and onions on a biscuit
This one's so new it doesn't have a name yet, but when our friends at New Haven Farms told us they had fresh shitaki and oyster mushrooms, we knew we'd find a place for them and here it is.
