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.


Spruce Pine, NC Farmers' Market this Wednesday

Today, at the market, the vendors opened a little early in order for people out for lunch to be able to visit the market in one trip.  Some of us were there between 1:00-1:30 p.m and stayed open until 5:30 p.m.
Tomatoes are finally on the list of produce available.  Some farmers are finding that the tomatoe crop is a little slower to ripen...probably the rain we've been having .  And with this is also the threat of a late blight which seems to be affecting farmers...mostly seen in the organic grown.
Corn is finally coming in as well.
There's a lot of choices here at the market and friendly, come by to see us.
We look to be open, at least, until the last of October.
