Yesterday was another great Saturday! After days and days of rain -- a deluge every day -- we enjoyed the one crisp, sunny day we can expect this week. Lots of food buyers, beautiful kids, and friendly dogs! We welcomed back Martin's Sweet Corn, and they sold out before the market even ended. We needed to postpone our annual corn roast because the rain has been so persistent that it has been difficult to pick!
Rain has been a problem for all of the farmers....garlic is wet and difficult to dry, some seeds have rotted in the ground and need to be re-planted, and some of the farmers have small streams that are now swollen over some of the fields. In spite of a tomato/potato blight in the area, several vendors did have wonderful ones. Dale had peaches! We have been hugely lucky....every vendor has product in abundance!
