This Week

Saturday, June 24th, from 8am to 12pm!

There will be BLUEBERRIES and PEACHES at market this week, folks, along with plenty of great summer produce, like sweet corn, okra, cucumbers, summer squash, snap beans, new potatoes, eggplant, and early tomatoes!

Spring veggies are beginning to wind down for the season, but you will still find fresh sprouting broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, spinach, Swiss chard, beets, sunflower and pea sprouts, and hopefully a new flush of Shitake mushrooms at the market this week!

We will also have grass-fed beef, organic-fed and pasture-raised pork, chicken, and eggs, cut flower bouquets, and summer garden transplants!

Check out the full vendor produce list and recipe of the week  for Greek Stewed Green Beans with Squash and Tomatoes!

Come out and enjoy a little live country/bluegrass music this week! We are pleased to welcome Joseph Campo to perform at the market on Saturday!
