Highland Village Farmers Market Thanksgiving
For the down-to-earth and/or most ambitious of us, Olde World Farms is offering a limited supply of free range turkeys at the Highland Village Farmers Market this Saturday.
It's part of a huge push on the market's part to capture your T-Day dollars. Stone Cloud Farms has fresh herbs and Meyer lemons to help you make homemade lemon meringue pie (if you don't want to go the House of Pies, Luby's or Denny's route).
And despite the dreaded worldwide pumpkin shortage (although several cans of pumpkin were still available at the downtown Randall's as of 1 p.m. today), Words and Food will have pumpkin walnut cheesecake tarts and well as quarts of fresh roasted pumpkin soup to take home.
Sweet potatoes will be available from Gundermann Farms, and throughout the market there will be "greens, squash, green beans, citrus fruit, fresh baked rolls and.... (drum roll here) even organic marshmallows."
Chef Dylan Murrary will be on hand at Saturday starting at 10 a.m. to help you brush up on how to put a Thanksgiving dinner together. His specialty: wild mushroom bisque topped with gulf shrimp, baby squash and truffle oil." The market is open from 8 a.m. to noon.
