After so many weeks of bright sunshine, and hot afternoons, we are looking forward to a few clouds and a great day at the market this weekend. We have almost reached the peak of the season, so everywhere you look you will find something new and delicious to tempt your taste buds.
From our berry farmers, we have of course a great selection of raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries! Along with them, check out Jessies Berries for some freshly picked boysenberries, marionberries, and loganberries. These blackberry hybrids are perfect for jamming or making pies. Come early, as the quantities will be limited and the berries delicious.
Our other fruit farmers have been having a great time on the farm, bringing the first peaches and nectarines of the season, along with a fabulous selection of bings, Rainiers, apricots, apriums, and a new favorite, nectarcots! Wondering about the nectarcots? Stop by Collins Family Orchards for a sample.
Gypsy Rows will be back with their fabulous lettuce heads, along with their early broccoli, cauliflower, kohlrabi and maybe even some pickling cucumbers. From Bautista Farm and Alvarez organics, check out the early corn, squash, and so much more. Maybe even some early peppers too! Summer Run Farm will have their sweet carrots and more. Finally from Frog Song Farm, you will find a wide selection of row crops, berries, mushrooms, early potatoes and so much more!
Now, that you have your veggies and fruits, stop by Martiny Livestock, Sky Valley Farm, or Wilson Fish for some protein for the BBQ. Whether you are looking for beef, pork, poultry, or fresh fish, they have the freshest around.
There is so much to enjoy and share at the market each week, between our new Mustard maker, The Mustard Company, whose booth is found on Bell Street; our new Pepper Jelly vendor, Angry Fish, found on 5th Avenue and Miracole Morsels, our gluten-free bakery and fine granola maker, to a returning favorite like Widow’s Oil Salad Dressing, Bubba’s Salsa or Shen Zen Tea — there is something for everyone to enjoy!
See you this Saturday, between 9 and 3.
