Taking a trip to your local farmer’s market is not only a great way to log some extra steps, but it’s also ideal for stocking up on the freshest, most nutritious and colorful produce.As the weather cools, fall produce is perfect for comforting soups and stews, apple pancakes, beet salads and more. Here, we share 15 iconic fall foods to try this season, their health benefits and creative. Not just for summer months, many farmers offer “pick your own” for fall produce, too. Turnips and kale are two popular pick your own crops during this season. “Don’t be afraid to ask at the farmer’s market if your favorite farmer also has any pick your own crops,” said Kayla.

Products Pick-your-own and pre-picked strawberries and blueberries. Farm-baked straw-berry cakes, strawberry bread. Farm-made jams, strawberry honey pops, straw-berry ice cream and local honey. Market Channels PYO, on-farm retail of pre-picked strawberries.

Ferris Farm is well known to people who frequent the area farmers markets. Ferris said, they sell at market Wednesday through Sunday, with two markets on Saturday. This year they will participate in a farmers market once a month at the University of Pittsburgh.

Ferris uses the least toxic plant protection products that she can. Lynd’s Market at 9091 Morse Road is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 6 p.m. In response to COVID-19, Lynd also now offers curbside pickup at the market. Nationwide, the number of farmers markets increased from 2,000 in 1994 to more than 8,600 in 2019, which led to a major problem: There are too few farmers to populate the market.

  • Well I’m catching up on all your vids Ryan. I got to this one and now I need to go to bed for 2 days �� I was exhausted just watching that lol. It’s awesome to follow along as this evolves. And you did such an awesome job beautifying your stall �� Well done mate. Just brilliant work all round. Thanks for sharing ����

  • I loved the set up! You work so hard, but that is what success is. Hard work= success! Way to go friend! So proud of all you have accomplished this far ��

  • wow what a informative worth while documentary,the more i read about russia and president putin the more i see what bunch of ignorant lazy deceptive people run the western countries…not all are for sure but i feel the majority are……congratulations to heir durr and the greatest president alive mr putin

  • Popeyes fried chicken charges 25.00 for what Costco sells for 5.00 Costco rules cuz they care about making customers happy.
    I never thought after growing up in New Orleans I would completely abandon Popeyes, price to high to enjoy eating it.

  • Why did CostCo cross the Nebraska road?

    Because after extensive cost analysis, including forecasted demographic and economic trends, return on heavy investment in infrastructure, cost of wages and logistics and long term strategic positioning industry goals compared to competitors, it was determined that cheaper chickens will be on the other side.

  • The modern approach to the present times to recover from the dysfunctional lunacy of the West.I am not proud to belong to a place that idolizes the Munster Family.

  • I’m confused. She said they sell 60 million chickens per year and then immediately said they’re raising 40% of their annual needs “which would equal 100 million chickens.”

  • I’m late chiming in here, just wanted to say what a great job you’re  doing. Good deal on the freshness I would hit you up for sure if I was close enough.!! Your attention to detail will help with return visits and people remember you.!!

  • I loved the video. Shows what can be done if everyone shakes hands, and gets to work, instead of throwing scarce money at the problem.

  • Hi mate, brilliant to see your set up. The way you’ve set things up looks great to me. You’re certainly giving your customers as fresh as possible produce. Brilliant that Gail is able to replenish your stocks for your second market. Bet you’ve learnt loads from this season and you’ll have so many plans to put into place for next season. Have a great weekend buddy. Take care. Nick

  • I like the thought of the spontaneity in business, tough I don’t mind, but playing by fair rules you know where you stand. It was shrewd of this gent branding his product as natural. Mr Durr seems to be in a place where he likes doing business.

  • Dearest Beloved The Boss!
    Glorious Home land, here l come.
    For with God all things are possible. Praise God.Love you all.
    More Love my Love.

  • Why love some animals and not others? There’s no necessity for us to slaughter animals for food, if we have the ability to live compassionately, then why wouldn’t we? Male baby chicks are slaughtered on their first day of life either through a macerator, being suffocated in a trash bag, or thrown into a ditch. If anyone’s interested in taking a stand against animal abuse then check out challenge22.com, it’s a free 22 day vegan challenge where you get guided assistance and access to a nutritionist. And then get active! Animals are the most oppressed and silenced beings on this planet, be their voice.✊��

  • I have not seen any comments on the fact that this “success” is based on subsidy. Maybe it is because that is a common feature of Russian and European agriculture. But I wonder how can one define success when one’s profit is dependent on a subsidy.

  • Western countries are worried that Putin is changing the Constitution?? Of course, it was dictated to us in 1991 by the Democrats, you were sitting on our necks and talking with your legs…. Now there is an opportunity to fix this…. Only liberals resist…

  • After watching supersize me 2, i’m very glad to hear that a company that treats its employees with respect is entering the chicken industry.

  • My thumbsup for an honest review of the chicken market, and Costco in particular. But I feel so distressed as there are so few thoughts, not from CNBC but from US government and other “higher-up” stake-holders, how to plan for the future. All climate crisis people know that chickens are way better than pork or beef, but that does not justify any kind of production of chickens. So, US politicians, are you really up for saving the Earth long-time or just for your next election period? (And please, be honest!)

  • costco has been doing just about everything right. all they have to do is produce a healthier bird. A bird not raised intensively, a bird bred without growth hormones, steroids, enriched feed and antibodies, all of which creates a bird that is in every way harmful to its consumers. This is what the Tysons of the the world has done to us… https://youtu.be/pX5cQm-4kUA?t=479 pt2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgq_Mjrow2U

  • I bet these little villages don’t fear the corona virus.
    They are small secluded and isolated micro industries who can survive independently for extended periods with out intervention.
    Good for them.

  • Looking good Ryan, I enjoyed hanging out with you on a double market day. Nice job on your display set up. Great watching you progress as you learn, you are an inspiration my friend.

  • Hi, I really enjoyed watching this. I love that you are constantly considering the aesthetics of your stall set up and produce, we eat with our eyes first so beautiful presentation makes a huge difference. Mock The Week used to make me cry laughing when it was running here:-)

  • There is a chicken factory in my town, and there’s literly a big field right next to the factory. The field has been empty for YEARS, and yet those chickens still suffer inside those “farms”.

  • It’s a pyramid game he plays. Workers now complain they not got salary. For the outside it’s a nice picture…. but a lot is not correct.

  • Wowwww……I am impressed.
    This awesome German farmer has made it in the extra special revival of Russia. This Russia is a land full of opportunities if you are willing to work.

  • Crops are not being harvested, and that’s not just a Covid issue, we know this for sure. Why are farms producing more than they can sell? As for the milk waste, that should be dehydrated, in other words, powder it for long term storage use. Find PROBLEMS & Make SOLUTIONS.

  • Why is she so cute… the gorgeousness is compelling me to readjust my life towards cleaner energy..cleaner food.. her beautiful soul compels me for I am a simple man

  • Good looking stall setup Ryan. Great to see your process which from visiting a few markets and shows think it is quite a selling point to be moving around working with your items your selling and or making something. It gives the customer something to look at and peak there interest. I find stalls where the vendor is just sitting there does not attract a customer.
    Take care

  • Before the pandemic and shutdown, I was buying fresh foods from local retailers.
    During the pandemic, I continued. It’s my way of zero waste shopping. There were very few shortages at the small retailers, like my local butcher and greengrocer.
    Now our lockdown laws have been lifted slightly, I still shop with them. Why?
    Because they sell authentic whole foods, locally sourced, and can compete with larger retailers that are price gouging their customers.
    During this whole fiasco, those smaller businesses have kept steady sourcing and prices.
    If I am ever in doubt, I can rely on them to tell me where my food comes from. And, they employ more staff.
    Now that is good service and value for money.

  • Instead of pouring the milk down the drain and letting the food to rot, why don’t they donate it to their county’s households with children, or food banks, or homeless shelters??

  • Cool story for all of us.
    Now, today and as we see in future Russia are and becoming center of the Christian World Economy, Cultural, space for Families, School System, ect, ect.
    Good luck to Russia and mine One Europe.

  • you MUST be selling well now, ryan. you should be pleased with the set-up. it looks professional. you obviously took your homework seriously by listening to other traders. definately worth a big thumbs up……….brian

  • Old hens are unpalatable compared to today’s chickens? LOL. Today’s chickens are slaughtered at 1-2 mo of age, they are so young that they don’t have time to build up any flavor. Chickens today taste like cardboard. They are bland and kind of gross.

  • The man of dicnity.,An Emperor of faith, An Emperor not only for the Russians but the world as a whole. He loves the poor, the blinds etc.

  • Great work bro!
    That was a long day for ya! Table set up was great cant wait to see the video of all the setups through out the season!

    Have a great weekend!

    Gro dat!

  • “Small amounts of antibiotics” in their feed slaughtered in just 5-7 weeks. And we suprise why people are becoming antibiotic resistant we wonder why heart disease and diabetes etc. are number one killers Go “Plant Based” people (or choose to eat a lot less meat!?) Chickens are certainly NOT what they used to be!!!

  • Yeah, life must be honey when you “meet right people” and become a king’s farmer. Anyone singing praise here to him needs to understand one thing -> 100 000+ hectares for FREE and STATE SUBSIDIES… do I need to continue? How can a small local farmer compete with this? How can anyone compete with this? Ohh wow what a nice guy… king’s farmer, ohh such a nice guy. This is by the way is not just how it’s in farming when all land is owned my Moscow, but in every other business sphere.
    Honestly this is just disgusting on so many levels.

  • I always felt like we russians and germans have a lot of in common. I mean we a little alike in some sort. By the way the majority of us even find german language easier to learn then english one.

  • One of Putin’s biggest fans and a prominent businessman in the agriculture industy, Stefan Dürr has built a farming empire in Russia.

  • Well I’ll be! Who would have thought a German would THRIVE in a Government Subsidised Primary Industry? Try do that in Australia we sell thousands of litres world wide UNSUBSIDISED!

  • Ryan �� Awesome Dude �� and wow, you sure are grafter young man!! ����‍�� Stall is Fabulous and lets hope you made some hard earned dosh my friend ���� great stuff hun, big hugs ����x

  • I agree pick ’em early for ultimate freshness. Some nice tips here mate. It ended up looking great. Oh.. damn you run a busy market day!

  • Why!?!?!?! Why raise the price of things so high only the wealthy benefit from everything while thinking of others as useless eaters?? That hurts my brain!!! Why not let people have a way to become self sustainable? Would that help to ease such a burden???

  • If we don’t let go the mistakes of the past it’s difficult to move forward to a brighter future.��Hate, war or Sanctions r just the obstacle of life. There’s always a bad rock in the middle before success ������

  • Thai government would welcome Costco to operate chicken farm in Thailand. But might add some expense for shipping overseas. Still the labor cost is around $12 per day. I have 100 acres of empty land. if you like to start chicken farm. We can sit down and work on this project. ������

  • Well, WE in the eastern Europe know that GERMANS are best and HARD working people.. and the land still remains in RUSSIA, just that management is helping locaals too.. not like the others, looted Russia and went to London and..Monte Carlo

  • You had got me as a customer, Ryan. Nice marked table setup and not least great products for sale. I loved this video.
    Thanks for sharing, and best wishes for the weekend.

  • God Bless Russia ���� a great �� nation with a good leader,this nation has everything that God created,it will be great �� if USA ���� and Russia ���� can trade to each other,nothing wrong with that

  • What a world we live in. The so-called US presidents have killed millions of innocent people in wars of aggression and should be charged, convicted of genocide instead they punish an innocent man who exposed some of the Presidents crimes. And the judges go along with this injustice, shame on you Minister of Justice and judges you are all a criminal organization together with Trump the worst world criminal.

  • Chickens need to be able to move and eat natural grains and not have hormones and antibiotics pumped into their body. When they get those treatments, we then put those same chemicals that was put into them into ourselves. Which is what’s the current epidemic of obesity in America is partly coming from

  • Headlight harvesting is the best! So right about (very) early morning picking! Great to see your set up. You seem to be learning the tricks of the trade from every market you do! Enjoyed the video, Ryan. All the best, Mike.

  • I don’t like that part where Debbie Borg (the Nebraskan farmer) talks about how the chickens give her the money to bring her daughter home. That’s one life for how many hundreds, thousands, million’s of other life’s. We need stop treating animals like a product. If you want chicken raise one yourself and eat it. If not then pay a high price ��. How much is yo your life worth?

  • Lol, germans are the efficency experts of earth, if you want to distract them put behind you and in front of them an un-level post.

  • Vertical integration is bad???? Is he crazy. That is the most effective way to control your process. Vertical integration is great. That is how you don’t have to wait for a contractor to do the job on time and the right specifications. In any kind of production business. And vertical integration is how you get the efficiency to pay your workers more.

  • Bro, Americans make out Russia to be so bad, but yall are cooler than Americans! If it wasn’t for all that snow and ice I’d loved to live there, but my bones can’t handle that kinda of cold!

  • yeah. if only more people would understand life as he does world would be alot better place. good man, really good man. despite his elders fought wars with russians, they accepted him as their own and he knows how to apritiate it propperly. good work, god people.

  • I really enjoyed seeing snippets of your day at the markets Ryan and I thought your stall and produce looked fabulous. What staples do you think you are missing out on? Take care Bethan ��

  • If the recent government manouves are to keep the Head of State for life, something came to mind when I saw the article regarding this: The man in Scripture who was told ‘you are weighed in the balances and have been found wanting.’

  • Animal Agriculture is the leading driver of human induced climate change, poor health, deforestation, water depletion, habitat loss, species extinction and world hunger. Our planet is being eaten in front of our eyes. Take all animal products off your plate. Let’s be the generation who gives a damn. Watch and share this video to educate yourself and others. https://youtu.be/S7854HbH9Ro

  • You are the amazing Girl.. Love from Pakistan.. You are sooo attractive.. And your work is just amazing I share your vedios with my freinds and we talk about you alot

  • Love that table set up! I very much love the little review by a real customer.
    Excellent! Long but satisfying day for you my friend. Well done.

  • I wuld lay down my life for Russia. If Russia wuld help me leave south africa and settle im on a new farm. South african farmers ar the hardest working men on the face of earth. God bless you. And a happy new year

  • Your stall is looking great! Sounds like a busy, tiring day. Hope it was worth while. This winter you might want to check ebay for cheaper table covers if Gail wants the sheets back on the bed.��

  • This German is de facto more of a Russian patriot than many of my good for nothing compatriots, the State needs to help him in all ways.

  • That graph is from the National Chicken Council. The NCC’s page currently has a chart of the broiler prices, which matches the graph in this video. But underneath it says “Wholesale and retail broiler price are composite prices of parts from 1990 forward.” No idea what it means. But I’ve been buying raw chicken in stores for about 7 years, and I’ve always been able to find $2.00/pound. Chicken prices have been stable for a while.

  • He is a respectful German business so, despite being billionaire and Russian (dual citizenship), west isn’t accusing him of being a mafia and oligarch. That’s the double standard of the hypocrite West.

  • Dont make me laugh, his obviously making very good money cuz of the sanctions!! He does not want the political landscape to change!
