Even with its new redesign, the DeKalb Produce Market continues its small town feel like an old fashioned indoor farmer’s market. Keeping intact its older, roughly painted, well worn wooden slap-boards with the attached straight legs, the assorted shaped storage holders line down along the center and that of the partially windowed front walls looking out towards its namesake street, DeKalb Pike, or, as many refer, Route 202.

Piled high over the edges of the furthest flat board displays set broad varieties of potatoes, onions, and apples sectioned on the opposite side. The wooden bin of tomatoes with some basil have their own small square wooden flat, then, just between groupings of foil wrapped planters with herb edibles or seasonal plants host stacks of colorfully abundant squash, long, round, and every color, the choices are plentiful, and true to this family owned businesses age old motto, reasonably priced too.

With Acorn Squash a great deal at the DeKalb Produce Market a short while back, I couldn’t resist these brightly mixed green and orange speckled cuties that seemed perfect for today’s recipe, Stuffed Acorn Squash.

One of the big changes in the redesign at DeKalb Produce Market includes the large open refrigerated vegetable cases running down the furthest back wall of the market. The cooler storage area seems to have enabled a more extensive fresh selection among basic vegetable provisions; bright colored assortments of kale, Swiss chard, collards, lettuces, carrots, mushroom varieties.

Having become one of my favorite stop-offs,  the market is a great place to drop in and see what’s fresh or new, including the redesign of this longtime family owned business combining new touches and added flavors while still continuing its longtime simplicity of past.  Finding plenty of options for creating a broad array of flavor packed vegetable dishes from the local DeKalb, also referred to as Route 202, even includes these brightly mixed green and orange speckled cuties, easily prepared whenever seasonally available for Stuffed Acorn Squash.
