What's at the Farmer's Market?
This is what is ripe and ready this week: honey dew melon, local eggplant, delicious corn, shelled speckled and green butter beans, peas, string beans, heirloom tomatoes(hopefully), bell peppers, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, onions, different kinds of greens, vine-ripened tomatoes, okra, watermelon, and cantaloupe, jams, dressings, pickled items and of course, free range eggs, local honey, pork skins and rinds, soaps and assorted craft items.
This list depends on the ability of the farmers to get into their fields to pick this produce. All the rain we have gotten has made it difficult, but you can rest assured that if they can reach it, they will pick it!
