Last Day of the 2022 Market, October 29th

It’s hard to believe it, but this will be our last market day of 2022! Let’s see your Halloween costumes!!!

Where did the time go? Seem as if I was just putting the final touches on the first web page of the year, May 7, 2022! It really has been a wonderful year at the Montgomery Farmer’s Market. All the smiling moms, dads, grandparents along with their winner children holding their market buck for finding all the 3 peas. I am happy every time I think about all the pictures I took every Saturday morning (except for the month of October where I was sidelined due to a knee replacement operation).

We continue to have lots of produce to offer, including fall squash, apples, collard greens, peppers, lettuce and so much more. Be sure to grab some apple cider (it freezes) and pre-order your Thanksgiving turkey, pie and cranberry sauce!

Both TS Farms and Pies & Other Pleasures are accepting special orders for Thanksgiving, so if you need a turkey or a pie be sure to connect with them. Pick up will be on Saturday, November 19th at the school parking lot between 9am-12pm.

Kim’s Cookies will have their Halloween-themed decorated sugar cookies, Fetching Fibers will have their beautiful hand-made shawls and Mystic Works will have their lovely candles. Also, with us this week is the 7th grade robotics team, The Thunderbolts, so be sure to check out their fund raiser!

A reminder to all customers, we do not have a public restroom so please plan your visit accordingly.

As always, we are open from 9am-12:30pm every Saturday, from May through October (no Winter market this year). We are located in the Montgomery Elementary School parking lot at 9609 Montgomery Road, Cincinnati, OH 45242. Come join in the fun!

Hello and welcome! We are currently in the planning phase for this upcoming market season. We will open on Saturday, May 1st and will continue through October 30th before changing to our winter market format (details TBD). Our operating hours will stay the same… 9am-12:30pm. We will still require all customers, vendors and volunteers to wear masks at all times while in the market space and to encourage social distancing… hopefully these COVID policies can “go by the wayside” as soon as possible

Everyone has a great time at the market.

Many of the market goers walk their leashed pets in an effort to give them a good time out as well as putting on a good show by just being there.

It is a great time.

We all have lots of fun!!!

Zoftig Bakehouse

Zoftig is me, Jess Zanger, a home baker making a variety of cookies, bars, cakes, and granola out of my home kitchen each week

I make for Zoftig customers the same type of bakes that I crave: unfussy and satisfying with interesting and complex flavors. When developing, my emphasis is always on flavor and quality of ingredients, including a variety of whole grains and seasonal flavors. I love a well-written recipe and the development process is undoubtedly the most personally rewarding part of Zoftig for me.

To me, cooking and baking are about connecting with people and spreading the simple joy of something delicious. I love seeing the Montgomery community each week and getting to know you all continues to be a joy. I’m incredibly grateful that you allow me to bake for your families.

After our last week at Montgomery this month you can find me at the Hyde Park Winter Market on Sundays … at MadTree Taproom in Oakley.

Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet …

To borrow the phrase from the Greek historian, Herodotus, spoken about 2500 years ago “Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail shall keep the postmen from their appointed rounds.” Or in this case, Montgomery Farmers Market shoppers.

Cant stop me!!!

Customer relaxation tent. Right infront of the band!!

Dual use music tent with a view of the band.

Thanks to the generous donation of a patron, we now have a music tent that can be used as a meeting and eating place for customers of the market (when it is not being used by the band).

Montgomery Farmers Market Bags

Reusable Market Bags Available With Your Favorite Vendors!  

The Market is beginning a new environmental effort this week to reduce the use of plastic bags, and we need your help.

Here’s how it works. When you buy something from a vendor who usually puts your purchase in a plastic handle bag, they will offer you a FREE colorful market bag. We hope you will use it instead, and bring it back each week when you come to the Market.

MFM is joining with other markets in our region, and with CORV, to reduce the use of plastic, which has become a world-wide environmental problem. We received a grant from Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District for 80% of the cost of the bags. MFM is paying the rest, so there is no cost to you or your favorite vendors.

There are so many wonderful options at the market during this time of the year. Sometimes it makes it difficult to make a choice!

Lots of options to choose among… give them a try on Saturday!

See ’em all at farmers and food artisans

Hey kids, find those hidden peas!!!

The 3 peas

The fluffy, softball sized balls are placed at 3 different vendors at the market. Each child that finds them returns to the managers tent and tells the manager the names of the vendors or the products that are sold at the vendor will receive a market buck. Takes three to win. Two or less gets a hint to keep trying but no buck.

We love our doggies at the market!!!

Woof.

A friendly reminder to our dog-loving friends to keep dogs on a leash and maintain control of them at all times while visiting the Market. Also keep the temperature in mind as the asphalt can get extra hot. More than anything, we want to be sure that all of our visitors (both 2- and 4-legged!) and vendors have a safe and enjoyable time at the Market.

We appreciate your cooperation and support.
