Subject: Don't miss the last BFM of 2016

Sundays 9-1 • 100 Block of R NW

Hi BFM fans,

Hard to believe that it is the end of our tenth season.  All of us, staff and producers, love being here on Sundays, as part of the BFM community we have all shared and continue to build.  I hope you have as well.  It is always sad for us to end the season. All the producers always tell me that BFM is the best and most welcoming market they know.  Yay for all of us.

BUNDLE up.  It will be chilly and windy.

How to keep that BFM feeling all winter?  Please follow us on instagram @bloomingdalefm.  At least for now, everything we post is sent to you, unlike FB that no longer sends you (and our other 3,076 fans) most of our posts and pix and recommendations for great recipes unless we pay them. 

(although if you keep checking the FB page and liking our posts, they will eventually send you what we post. FB subversion. )

Plus you can share your pix of the market and the dishes you cook at our hashtags: here #bloomingdalefm or here #bloomingdalefarmersmarket .

LAST CALL for TOKENS:  Please bring them back to market and use them. They are hiding in your Fall coats and jackets and yearning to be spent at the market. The Bonus tokens expire forever on Sunday.
Reid's has the best selection I have seen in our region of both famous and heirloom apples.  Ask Conor and Kara for the best varieties for pies and applesauce and other apple recipes. Remember that apples should be kept cool in the fridge, ideally in a perforated plastic bag.  They will last for weeks that way. And apple gas does turn carrots bitter so keep those them apart.
