Friday Market Update

Vendors Attending Saturday July 30th:

Blackbird Farm of Coopersville
This weekend’s storm system gave us three inches of much-needed rain, and the thirsty crops have responded this week with gratitude. Now that we are on the cusp of August, we are seeing the harvest shift more fully to the fruits of high summer. Can tomatoes be far behind? No, they cannot.
This Saturday we will be bringing:
minicabbages, red and green
beans, green and purple
cucumbers, slicing and pickling
summer squash
patty pan squash
green peppers
hot peppers
green garlic
We will also be bringing a selection of small bouquets from Shel’s cut flower garden, as well as some single-stem sunflowers
Forrest will also have a selection of provisions, including hot sauces, for your perusal.
Looking forward to seeing friends old and new at market this weekend?
