Locally grown heirloom, cherry, and Roma tomatoes are still available, as well as fall apples. Artisan foods include fresh-baked breads and delicious sweet and savory pastries jams, jellies, jams, and pickles.
Photographs, handcrafted leather goods, ceramics, fused glass art, fiber art, greeting cards,
hand crafted accessories, and jewelry are among the art and fine crafts for sale.
Mississippi Hills CSA vegetables, Jalapeno Jelly and Salsa.
Jalapeno jelly and fresh salsa are featured at Mississippi Hills CSA. Adam Week’s Jalapeno jelly is sweet with a spicy kick and tastes wonderful as a spread with cream cheese. Adam’s salsa is inspired by his grandmother’s recipe and comes in medium and hot. Adam’s fall vegetables include pumpkins, spaghetti squash, kale, salad greens, and flavorful broccoli. Get Adam’s popular broccoli while you can, as next Saturday is likely to be the last of the season.
Other fall produce at Riverwalk includes apples from McBride farm, and tomatoes from Ruf Acres greenhouse.
Mae J Creates Studio
Jessica Miller and Erica Miller-Brockton of Mae J Creates Studio are a couple of sisters on a mission to share what they create will be at Riverwalk through the end of October. Jessica and Erica’s work defies category. Jessica photographs flowers and images of Ireland. Erica makes photos of newborns and of artistically arranged metal scrap from her husband’s scrap business. Find these images on greeting cards and in repurposed frames from wood, metal, and windows. Their self-care package, available monthly by subscription, includes home-made laundry soap, bar soap, and body oil, a meditation tip, a photo greeting card, and a small repurposed item. October self-care selections are scented with basil coupled with lemon or grapefruit.
