Fall Fun @ Walter Stewart's Market in New Canaan (sponsored post)

Sarah Green

Halloween is just around the corner and WALTER STEWART'S MARKET is ready with all of autumn's most BOOtiful offerings. Don't miss out on scrumptious CIDER DONUTS and HOOLIGAN cheese and be sure to wash it all down with some TWO ROADS "ROADSMARY'S BABY" PUMPKIN ALE! Walter Stewart's grocer in New Canaan, family run since 1907, offers the very best in local produce as well as every day items, beer, wine and SPIRITS -not ONLY for Halloween!- and exotic, specialty fare. 

What says "Autumn" more than - Back to School!? Walter Stewart has plenty of healthy Back to Nature Snacks including Planet Fuel Organic Juices and the latest from Lunch Bundles - the Gluten Free Snack Pack. (Check it out at lunchbundles.com!) And don't forget to pack those lunchboxes and pie crusts full of fresh, delicious apples. Local apple season is starting any day now and all varieties of local CT apples and pears will be arriving soon from Lyman Orchards in Middlefield, CT. Also new for fall is beautiful local produce from Boot Camps Farms in Newtown, CT.

How about quenching your thirst with some Maple Water for a change? Walter Stewart's carries it, freshly tapped from the tree, full of fortifying vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, prebiotics and much more.

Ready for something a touch bolder? Walk next door and try a bottle from one of Walter Stewart's ample wine and spirit collection?

We like the Buil & Gine Priorat Rose' or the Patton Valley Pinot. Going bolder still? Perhaps a Westland American Single Malt or a jug of Orange V Vodka is more your style.  Or if it is your BREWmstick that needs refurbishing, stock up on Walter Stewart's notable craft brews: Spencer Trappist Ale, Dogfish Punkin Ale, Cisco Pumple Drumpkin, Eviltwin Brewing Yang IPA are just a few of many.

A perfect match for any of Walter Stewart's potables are the scrumptious specialty cheeses, ripe and ready for fall. Alpine style cheeses from Cato Corner include Bloomsday with its medium firm texture and tangy, nutty build  (which pairs beautifully with a Pinot for the younger version or a Chianti for the "elder statesman.)

Or perhaps a you're really a HOOLIGAN at heart - Hooligan is a gold medal award winner, rated  one of the "top aged raw mild cheeses in the country" by SaveurMagazine. This washed-rind cheese (washed in brine - sea salt and water) has a distinct earthy smell, creamy texture and a long, lingering finish. Pair this beast with a full-bodied Shiraz or a Cotes du Rhone.

Hosting a dinner party or sporting event? Walter Stewart's has household items to help you decorate. Beautiful paper products and candles from Caspari and Boston International and decorations from October Hill and Northern Lights will help cater any affair. And don't forget to treat you family and guests to some Halloween CANDY! Walter Stewart's Market sells the most delectable array of fall truffles from Lake Champlain in the front end of the candy display. 

Whatever your shopping needs, Walter Stewart's is the place. The market is also in the process of expanding its frozen foods selection of organic and gluten free items so grab your empty (recyclable) goody bags and head on over. Walter Stewart's - all treat and no tricks.
