There is nothing like a 60 degree weather and a burst of heavy rain to announce the beginning of the fall season. The rain on Sunday almost definitely ended the season for blackberries, blueberries and raspberries. Peaches still have a few weeks though. Strawberries should be available too. Apples, pears and plums should all be readily available. On the vegetable side, corn, summer squashes, tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers will be plentiful. You should also find new potatoes, fresh onions, green beans, chard and kale will be available.
Greenville Farms will be back with corn as well as prune plums, broccoli, summer squash, green beans (maybe) and zucchini. They may have gourds and mini-pumpkins too. If not this week then the gourds and pumpkins will be at the market next week. Unger Farms will be bringing strawberries. Packer Orchards will have apples, pears and peaches. Sulina and Bay’s Farm will be bringing chard, rhubarb (maybe), fenugreek, carrots, beets, cabbage, radishes, corn, basil and other fresh herbs, zucchini plus green beans. Russell’s Bread will be making sandwiches Little Pots and Pans will be bringing a selection of savory tarts, tartlets and salads. Xiong Farmer will be selling a variety of flower bouquets. Rogue Creamery will have its usual great lineup of cheeses while Anton’s Bakery will have a wide selection of gluten-free baked goods. Asian-American Food is finished for the season.
See you at the Market!
