MARKET!! Come visit us at the market today!

Oh my. Did you think I forgot? I have been so busy working on other aspects of the market, travelling to out of State weddings, canning and preserving the harvest that I bring home each week….the newsletter and market report really did slip my mind last night! Unbelievable!
I am in the process of finalizing the November and December holiday market schedule and will have those details out soon. Stay tuned! Our last day of the regular Wednesday market season will be October 26th. I hope you will continue to support the vendors and keep our market lively during the last few weeks as it gets a little darker and the fall season really kicks in. They work hard to get everything harvested, cleaned, processed, baked, put together, packed and transported to get it to us each week…let’s show our appreciation and support!

Market begins at 4pm and we request that no purchases are made until the bell rings. We appreciate your cooperation
Please take the opportunity to come visit the market and support the vendors.

These are the long days of transition. We are still in the late summer harvest and the beginning of fall produce. The seasonal summer produce is slowly coming to an end. The last tastes of sunshine and hot weather!! And fall is just around the corner. The days are getting shorter. The apples and apple cider have been coming in the last few weeks and will continue to do so.
