Looking forward to a fabulous Late Fall Market on  Saturday, December 7. The market season is open 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Marquette Commons, 112 S. Third St. through December 14.

Prepare for the holidays and stock up for the winter at the Downtown Marquette Farmers Market.

The market accepts cash, credit/debit cards, SNAP, Double Up Food bucks and Hoophouses for Health.

Dressing Winter Greens


As temperatures drop and snow flies, I crave colorful food. A favorite source this time of year is frost kissed, tender, baby greens. Their bright leaves are a welcome relief on grey days and their candy-like sweetness keeps me wanting to eat my vegetables. Usually, I eat these winter treats unencumbered with seasonings or dressings so their own flavors shine. However, a good, simple vinaigrette can bring out their more complex flavor, pair down any bitterness, and (bonus!) help us absorb more vitamins.

Making your own vinaigrette is simple and allows you to avoid preservatives, sugar, and thickeners you might find in store bought counterparts. To make, combine your favorite oil (i.e. olive oil), an acid (i.e. lemon juice or vinegar), and seasonings (salt, herbs and/or spices). Homemade vinaigrette will keep for 1-2 weeks in the fridge.

While most commonly used as salad dressings, you can also use vinaigrettes as marinades for roasted veggies or meat. If you’re cooking with a vinaigrette, make sure the oil has the right smoke point for the temperature at which you’ll be cooking.
