It’s always a pleasure to welcome back our part-time vendors. This week finds favorites Just Cupcakes and the renowned Brownie’s, Cookies and S’more in place.

If you’ve missed The Bakery at Riverside Farm the last couple weeks, you’ll be glad to know they are back this week, too. For the best of local, try their pumpkin muffins made with Shady Goat Farm cheese and other seasonal breads.

Grace and Gratitude is abounding with their own delicately-carved pumpkins and large squashes, intricately incised with fall patterns, like leaves and vines. Long-lasting, they work well indoors or out for an imaginative seasonal touch.

Rodney Einhorn, luminous chef-owner of Terrapin, shared his Old Beach space for the last two markets with The Stockpot, a new pop-up restaurant serving just soups and biscuits.

Surprises like that make coming to the market doubly pleasurable; we hope they’ll pop back soon.

Come on by and find your own surprises.


Fall flavors abound in my Maple Morning Popcorn, originally from my book, “Popcorn.”

Enjoy it for a spooky treat at parties this Halloween.

Preheat oven to 300F. Line a baking sheet with foil or a silicone baking sheet and set aside.

Put 4 quarts freshly popped corn in a large, clean paper bag or washable muslin bag. In a small bowl, whisk together 1/3 cup butter, melted, 1-1/2 tablespoons pure maple syrup, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Drizzle the butter mixture over the popcorn, fold over the top of the bag, and shake until the porn is coated and moist.

Spread the popcorn evenly over the baking sheet and bake until the popcorn is dry, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer the popcorn to a large bowl, sprinkle 2 tablespoons sugar over the popcorn, and toss to coat.

Yields 4 quarts.
