Hey Tuesday Market Friends --

happy valley guitar orchestra in action

We are super lucky this week to have the Happy Valley Guitar Orchestra, the world's premiere avant-garde guitar orchestra (and local favorite), performing for FREE at Tuesday Market. The concert is sponsored by the Northampton Arts Council. Two sets: one at 4:30 pm and one at 5:30 pm. Come listen to Bartok played like Led Zeppelin, or maybe Philip Glass on banjos? Anything is possible with the HVGO!

And if you get to market earlier, from 2-3:45 Shanti and Kwame will be performing West African music. Quite the musical menu to go along with the feast of food.

Here's the list of all the vendors at market this week.

 Here are the comfort foods that I've been cooking up this week. Stuffed Cabbage Rolls, a favorite of the valley Polish community. I had never made them before and they took a little planning ahead but were wonderfully nourishing. And Maple Almond Cacao Cookies. Marian from Justamere Tree Farm brought these to a market meeting a couple Januaries ago and later passed her quick version of the recipe my way. Protein rich and yummy.

Bistro/GRUB and Cakery Dauphine will be back this week after a little hiatus. There will be Roasted Tomato Soup for a brisk fall day and Peanut Noodles for a fast filling meal and cupcakes. Chamaya's Tortilleria (or the Tortilla Ladies, as I call them) will also be back. I love their corn tortillas as the wrapping for a breakfast taco.

The artist this week is Malea Rhodes bringing beautiful and functional pottery -- mugs, serving vessels, and buttons for all you knitters out there.

Kids' art this week is egg carton flowers that can turn into necklaces, too. Zoe warns parents: your chidren will have access to paint. There will be chalk and coloring, too.

In case you forgot, market goes until November 20th this year.

See you there!

P.S. Here's a fascinating article this week about the amount of food that our American culture wastes -- close to 40% and way up since 1970. And here's an interview with a grass fed meat farmer from NY talking about how to not waste as much of the animals we eat and how that can make grass fed meat more affordable.
