Holiday Market Closure Schedule

The holiday season is upon us! As a reminder, the Sunday City Park Market will be closed on December 25 and January 1 so that our vendors have a chance to rest, celebrate, and observe the holidays with their loved ones! Make sure to get your holiday shopping done at the Tuesday Uptown and Thursday Mid-City markets before or between the closures. Whether you need sweet potatoes for a pie, local meat for a hearty roast, or fresh greens for a side dish, CCFM markets have a lot to bring to your holiday table.

Not quite wrapped up with your holiday gift shopping? You’re in luck—CCFM has what you need and more! Take a look at our Updated 2022 Holiday Gift Guide, featuring over 30 gift offerings from CCFM vendors!

Vendor of the Week:

J&D Blueberry Farms

It’s stollen time! J&D Blueberry Farms is back for the holiday season with Stollen, a german loaf made with spices, nuts, rum-soaked raisins, and a coating of powdered sugar or almond paste. It’s traditionally eaten during the Christmas season and pairs great with a cup of coffee or hot tea; because of this, it makes a lovely holiday gift! Stop by any of our markets before the holidays to pick up your festive loaf from J&D Blueberry Farm, made using Captain Mueller’s famous recipe! Jeff and Don of J&D Blueberry Farm have been in the blueberry business since 2004! Today, J&D offers a variety of baked goods, jams and jellies, teas and cold drinks, fresh and frozen blueberries, and creamy fruit and yogurt popsicles. Come visit them at market!

Recipe of the Week:

Dill Pickle Kale Chips

Leafy, green, and rich in so many nutrients, kale is a superfood superstar when baked and seasoned! For an almost unbelievably quick and easy homemade snack, try crispy, oven-baked kale chips! Any type of kale works, whether curly or bumpy–just make sure you have enough for everyone! This recipe from Bites for Foodies adds fresh dill for a kick of freshness and flavor. Not a dill fan? No big dill; you can use any of the other herbs available at market, including but not limited to parsley, cilantro, and rosemary! We love this recipe with a fresh squeeze of lemon at the end. Make more than you think you need; as with any delicious snack, you need plenty!
