| Last Market ! 9/24/16 !
We have two special guests this Saturday. Nick of Awesome in Action will be under the Gazebo. He has a series of children's books: Power Books for Kids.
Our other guest is Mary Fuller, with her lovely hand-made baskets. She only comes to market once a year, so be sure to come see !
Almost everything is ripe in September. Stock up and put all this gorgeous bounty into the freezer !
Peaches will be available for several more weeks at our farmers' markets. Find organic peaches from Morton's Orchards at Croft Family Farm, or conventional peaches at C & R Farms. C & R also has luscious pears, crisp apples, & sweet plums.
Colby's Award Winning Dahlias are blooming. Get to market early if you want to snag a bouquet. He has changed his pricing a bit. Zinnias are $ 5.00 and Dahlias are $ 8.00.
MissAlyss down at Croft Family Farms has mixed bouquets. She raised her beautiful Lisianthus from seed. These flowers must be hand seeded, and started in January ! Find them in her mixed bouquets.
Expected ABSENT this week are: Pain Wizard, Loco Bueno, Calico Kids, BigLar Bagels, RM Macarons
We also have Switchback Baked Goods, with healthy cookies. Varieties include Molasses, Oatmeal Raisin and Chocolate Chip. There are also Gluten-free options, as well as Cinnamon Rolls !
Several of our vendors continue to operate through the winter. Check Meadow Maid Foods for details about their winter markets.
Sincerely, Nan Zimmerman
PS: Remember that luscious Black Garlic from a few weeks ago? Mushroom Haus has a batch ready for sale ! Possibly even Black Garlic Salt ....
Mark & Steve will be bringing Black Garlic back. Not only to sample, but for purchase.
This is a photo from early spring, so do not expect all these greens !
