Walter Stewart's Market Fall Shopping Guide (sponsored post)

Fall is here and Walter Stewart's Market, a fixture in downtown New Canaan since 1907, is celebrating the season with great products for your whole family. For those who haven’t shopped this local gem, take a a trip down the aisles of Walter Stewart’s Market, where you’ll find an amazing array of local, seasonal and specialty items...not to mention the Stewart’s wine shop.  Finally one stop shopping. 

How better to enjoy in these crisp Fall months, than with local apple and apple cider from Lyman Orchards in Middlefield CT or the exceptionally delicious Cider donuts from Blue Jay Orchards in Bethel. 

Just one aisle over you can find the perfect pairings for this Fall harvest with local cheese producers, Beltane Farm from Lebanon as well as Cato Corner Farm from Colchester, CT. Beltane offers cheese lovers everything from bloomy to creamy with Vespers, Danse de la Lune and fresh Chevre, while Cato’s selections include their young Vivace Bambino, the sharp Bloomsday, as well as their creamy and mild Dutch Farmstead, and Drunken Hooligan washed with grape must and young red wine from Colchester's Priam Vineyard.

Pair one of these with “Birra Jelly,” a beer based cheese accompaniment we’ve simply never seen anywhere in Fairfield County. 

Can't get to the farmers' market? The local harvest can be found year round in Walter Stewart's produce section where CT farmers from Wagner Farm in East Windsor, Millstone Farm in Wilton, and Westport's Gilberties Nursery, are delivering the best our area has to offer. 

Some of the most exciting products at Walter Stewart's Market can be found on the end caps, where you will see special local producers and unusual imports. Great finds such as small batch olive oil, as well as crave-worthy dessert topper, La Salamandre Farmhouse Dulce De Leche from Argentina, and a personal favorite, VT’s Fat Toad Farm Caramels are all waiting for you. We also found a great gift idea: “In A Jar Foods” has beautiful organic Chocolate Chip Cookie mix presented beautifully in glass jars and perfect for the holiday season.  

If sweets are what you’re craving, try Klara’s Cookies from nearby MA, or Bella’s Home Baked Goods from NY with delicious Gluten Free Cinnamon Toast or Butter Toffee. Walter Stewart’s also carries Scotty’s Biscotti from Southbury, CT,  Bites Company Biscotti Bites from our very own Westport, and Big Nanny’s from Darien. Go CT!! 

For those seeking Gluten Free products, The Cupcake Truck from New Haven will be delivering Gluten Free cupcakes to the market every week.  

Conveniently located right next door, at Stewart’s Spirits, you can find seasonal brews, or “Pumpkin Brews,” with brands like: Shipyard Pumpkinhead Ale, Dogfish Head Punkin Ale, and Cisco Pumple name a few. 

If you prefer less pumpkin in your brew, Stewart’s Spririts has an exceptional selection of local and craft beers. Their knowledgeable staff can help you find just the right pairing for your dinner party or quiet evening’s meal. 

Speaking of pairings...New this month at Stewart’s Sprits are a few wines worth checking out. The Ayre Pinot Noir (from Oregon’s Williamette Valley), Renieri Brunello di Montalcino, and a very reasonable label, 90 + wines will ease you into Red wine season. Stewart’s has great wines at every price range. 

Enjoy your next trip to Walter Stewart's Market. It is a local treasure, full of culinary surprises…and it's right around the corner.

Walter Stewart's Market is located at 229 Elm Street in downtown New Canaan.  203.966.4848

Blue Jay Orchards is a nice place to shop, but their cider donuts are not good. We had them last weekend. They were very, very dense cake-style (not airy at all) and greasy but still terribly dry. We had a hard time getting one bite down. We will never buy these again. Their apples are crispy and delicious, and reasonably priced.

disagree on the donut critique, go back, try again, they are quite nice.
