Farmer's Market Update for 6-29-2019
RIPE AND READY
Do you recognize these awful looking things? They are the sweetest and tastiest of all string beans...RATTLESNAKE STRING BEANS! They are members of our ugly but delicious club, and they will be available in limited quantities at Wild Bill Tilghman's spot in the first section of the market on Saturday.
Shop early so you will get some of these!
Other delicious summertime bounty available...sweet corn in white, bi-color and yellow is everywhere and is super delicious. You can buy it shucked or unshucked. And butter beans....green or speckled already shelled. And pink-eye peas....already shelled. And those wonderful heirloom tomatoes...but you should shop early. There are field grown tomatoes and yellow squash, pattypan squash, zuchinni...just waiting for some spring onions and maybe just a little bacon grease
