home delivery begins soon

Hello friends,

The outdoor market season is winding down in a lovely succession of frosty mornings and sunny days and sweet-smelling thunderstorms. We will be outdoors on the square for two more weeks. We will move to the indoor market at Monona Terrace on Saturday, November 12, and our first home delivery of the season will be on Friday, November 11. As always, the ordering menu will be sent out on Sundays, and orders are due on Wednesdays for Friday delivery.

We will not be baking the week of Thanksgiving this year, so there will be no delivery on November 25, and we will not be at the market on November 26. 

Last night I opened the back door to listen to the rain and suddenly the whole sky lit up and there was boom boom thunder and it was pouring, and here's our poem of the week:

Rain Travel
By W.S. Merwin

I wake in the dark and remember
it is the morning when I must start
by myself on the journey
I lie listening to the black hour
before dawn and you are
still asleep beside me while
around us the trees full of night lean
hushed in their dream that bears
us up asleep and awake then I hear
drops falling one by one into
the sightless leaves and I
do not know when they began but
all at once there is no sound but rain
and the stream below us roaring
away into the rushing darkness
