Spruce Pine, NC Farmers' Market this Wednesday

Last weeks' market showed a sign of fall.  Root crops such as irish potatoes, sweet potatoes and turnips were at the market.  We had pumpkins...the Sugar Pie pumpkins are in and they make wonderful pies.  The roasted seeds are delicious too!  We'll have the Snack Jacks' for next Wednesdays' market.  The Jerusalem Artichokes are looking good too.
Tomatoes are about over for most of the farmers' around here...the late blight hit hard.  It also hit our cantaloupes...hope to salvage some though!
We have fresh corn leaves for wraps and hope to have banana leaves for next Wednesdays' market.
Just gathered some green Oxacana "dent" corn and broom corn to dry for Falls' decorating time.  We'll be making swags and brooms from the broom corn and will have those in the store to sell.  Will gather the Bloody Butchers' corn to dry some next week.  We hope to leave some in the field to dry naturally to use for grinding and making into breads.
