Come shop Harvest Fest and Applepalooza in Costume, Market Customers!
The last market of the season is here. Harvest Fest and Applepalooza are happening this Saturday, October 30, 10 am to 3 pm and will spread out over three blocks at the corner of 5th and Sherman in downtown Coeur d’Alene. We are celebrating the end of the harvest and bringing fun activities and market goods to our customers one more time in 2021 – except for the Winter Market on December 11th. Costumes are encouraged, and we’ll have a photo booth to capture your memories and take them home with you.
There will still be fresh, sweet fall produce like apples, carrots, potatoes, onions, greens, garlic, squash, pumpkins, and more! Vendors will have fresh flowers and dried bouquets crafted from their gardens and greenhouses. Dried flowers are unique and beautiful and can last for years! There will also be an abundance of baked goods and treats for the holiday and season, in addition to frozen meats, goat and cow cheeses, honey, jam, salsa, cider, and locally-made crafts. Don’t miss Garden Party Fibers’ booth for all the warm things to keep you snug this fall and winter.
Hazy Petals will be back for this last market with their delicious falafel and hummus. And Lake City Bakers will be celebrating with baked Apple Fritter Bread, Caramel Dipped Apples, and Apple Huckleberry pie. They’ll also have free treats for any Trick or Treating Kids!
While we may be take a rest for a few weeks, don’t forget that the Winter Market is coming up on December 11th. This market is your opportunity to support your favorite farmer or artisan one last time in 2021 and is your one-stop-shop for all your holiday gifts.
These tiny, edible trophies you get from pumpkin carving make a great snack.
- 1 1/2 cups pumpkin seeds well-cleaned and well-dried
- 2 tsp olive oil
- sea salt
Preheat your oven to 375F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, toss the pumpkin seeds with the olive oil and sea salt.
Transfer the pumpkin seeds to the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 15-30 minutes, or until the seeds are deeply golden. A zap under a broiler is a nice finishing tough, but not necessary.
Remove from the oven, allow to cool for a minute or two, and enjoy plain, or stir in any of the following for some favorite variations
- zest of one lemon, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper and 8 finely chopped olives
- 2 tsp curry powder and 2 tsp brown sugar
- 2 grated cloves of garlic and a handful of minced chives
