9 Aug

In addition to the wide variety of tomatoes, vendors brought a bumper crop of watermelon and canteloupe, peppers, early apples, squash, and corn.  Local honey, beef, and eggs filled out shoppers’ grocery bags.  It’s a good time to go to the market!  Join us this coming Sunday from 12-3, and add yourself to our e-newsletter list to get a FREE market cookie!
