Second-to-last Farmers Market.
I don't have nearly enough freezer or house space to do serious "putting up," but I get really bummed once the market closes and I'm about to be basically housebound for 4 months except for work, weekend, and holidays. So I make a little stash of treats that I'm only allowed to use after DST ends. This year's stash:

3 kinds of tomatoes (medium red, small orange, and an amazingly delicious tiny, teardrop-shaped one that I wish I'd discovered sooner and been eating fresh. Any ideas what it might be?)

Tomatillos
3 poblano chilies (which I mislabeled ancho)
a tub of The Fancy Butter
a jar of pickled beets
3 kinds of international sauerkraut (Ecuadorian, German, and Greek) for making variations on Zuurkool Stampot.
Strawberries
2 meaty country-style pork ribs
I still have 2 zucchini to grate.

Any other recommendations for easy=to-store treats?

Note:  I would not freeze these suggestions ..  

Jars of Salsas or Dips for Crudities (celery stalks, carrot sticks, cherry tomatoes, chips) and nice with a baked potato too ..

Jars of olives ( for tapenade ) 

Red roasted bell pepper strips (great with tuna and a bit of mayo)

Evoo = extra virgin olive oil and some sea salt -- perfect with a  lovely loaf of bread or crackers 

Eggs =  french omelettes,  sunny side up or  hard boiled for deviled eggs or egg salad

Hope this has assisted ..

The market doesn't have a lot of those things (they have eggs, but I get those from my nephew), but roasted peppers sound delicious!

Melissa, 

Roasted red peppers are lovely. 

Surely you can find them in a Latin Market too ..
They should have olives too .. 

Good luck on your shopping spree and have a lovely weekend.

Turns out that there was a place with EVOO and olives after all. (I knew the vendor was there, but hadn't checked them out in months.) What I ended up buying from them, though, was some really nice balsamic vinegar.
Also froze some Swiss chard and got some Amish cucumber relish.
