Market Update

Market Update July 20 2010

(Updated – I hit “Publish” instead of “Save” earlier, sorry about that)

Raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and strawberries will be plentiful this Tuesday. Cherries will be plentiful as well. Apricots and peaches showed up in small quantities this past weekend as well. Apricots should be available tomorrow but peaches may be another few days off. Lettuce should be readily available and there should be other greens as well.

Vendor news: Rick Steffen Farm is off this week. The cold, wet spring has finally caught up with Rick, so he needs to take a week or two off to let things grow. Full of Life Farm will be at the market this Tuesday. THINK Unique Gardens is at the market this week.

Early update for Thursday’s market: Sage and Sea Farms, a local producer of vinegar syrups, will start coming to the Thursday market. I know what you’re thinking (“vinegar syrup?”) but the taste will really surprise you. Mixed with water, the syrups make delicious drinks. I was amazed when I tried a few flavors last week. Stop by on Thursday and try a sample.

See you tomorrow,
