June 24 & 27

Well last week the farmers' market felt like it was finally into full swing! At our Wednesday market we welcomed back Jeffrey's Produce and 3 Pond's Farm, as well as our regular Wednesday vendors, and we had more of a steady crowd!  On Saturday a lot of our vendors sold out before 11:00! The crowd was large around opening time at 9 AM and our customers were grabbing all the goodies before the start of their weekend. This means you need to come early folks, unlike grocery stores, our farmers have a limited supply of fresh picked goods!  In our artist tent on Saturday we welcomed From the Forest and they had a lot of interest and sales at their tent!


This week will bring another beautiful (and warm) day for our Wednesday market, with the sun shining! There are a couple new produce items that we've been seeing at the market, like zucchini and cabbage, sugar snap peas, and carrots.  The season for those fresh picked lettuces may be coming to an end with the increase in temperatures we've been seeing, so if you've been enjoying a fresh salad from the market, be sure to get your lettuce sooner than later!  On Saturday we will feature another new-to-the-market artist who makes wonderfully unique dreamcatchers!

Oh and by the way, if you missed the front page of the Indiana Gazette on Monday, the farmers' market was the featured picture!!!!  See what everyone's raving about and find the freshest foods this week on Wednesday and Saturday at the market!  See you then!
