Thanksgiving Is In Six Weeks!
Nantucket has become a Thanksgiving destination, and you may be blessed to have a house full of relatives and friends for a long weekend!  So it's not too soon to start thinking about ordering your turkey and sides for Thanksgiving!  
This year we are offering Murray's Turkeys.
They have no antibiotics, no growth hormones,
and they are vegetable fed.
Nantucket's cranberry bogs are producing beautifully and we have a few crates of organic berries here at the market.
There will be more as the harvest continues!
Cook them fresh, or throw them in the freezer to use later! 
It's just one recipe of many offered by the
Cape Cod Cranberry Growers Association!.
We are booking holiday parties for November and December in the Hayloft!
Counting Down To Halloween!
Kate has chosen some really fun decorations for your home or business.  
And be sure to save the date for Pumpkin Carving and Painting October 24.

Who's YOUR Farmer?
Carolina Soto is from Santiago, Chile and she and came to intern with us via CAEP (Communicating for Agriculture Exchange Program.)
When she found out about her placement she was so excited to work  at a farm with so much history, involving so many generations and one that’s on an island! She has a degree in Agronomy and she came here wanting to work with organics, vegetables and in a greenhouse. She has enjoyed many different tasks her but a favorite was harvesting pumpkins and gourds… she says gourds are like people: they are from the same family but they are all so different! Her dream is to continue schooling at UMass Amherst by studying Plant, Soil and Insect sciences. She says this internship wasn’t about the money, it was about finding out what you want to do, if you like doing it and if it makes you feel good.
We Have Pumpkins!
Orange pumpkins, warty pumpkins, white pumpkins, yellow pumpkins, pink pumpkins, small pumpkins, really small pumpkins, 
big pumpkins, and really big pumpkins.
And they were all grown here at Bartlett's.
You can find them in the garden center! 
And there are great farm-grown plants for your decks and fall containers.  The mums are just beautiful this year!
