Hope everyone enjoyed America's birthday yesterday. I know ours was a very wet one...hope you all managed to get your grilling and picnic in between raindrops.
I have spoken to a few farmers and they are hoping that the fields will be dry enough to get into in order to harvest for the market tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed! :)
Here's an idea of you'll find at the markets on Saturday...
RICHMOND RD. MARKET
Tomatoes...red and green
Green Beans...heirlooms too!
Pimento Cheese...Bourbon blend too!
Cut flowers...think Zinnias and Sunflowers!
Dried Peppers and Veggies
Jams...Pepper Jam too!
STONEWALL CENTER MARKET
Squash...Crook Neck and Straight Neck
Cucumbers...Slicers, Pickle and Burpless too!
Cabbage...Green and Savoy
Tomatoes...Green and a limited supply of Red
Onions...Green and Candy (sweet)
Potatoes...White, Red and Yukon gold
Peppers...Sweet and Hot but limited supply!
Kale...Curly Blue Scotch variety!
And, who knows what new goodies might appear either market...like maybe melons!!!
Our farmers grew, raised, baked, produced or made everything that they sell. No reselling allowed...you will be purchasing from one of our members directly! It's called local and we guarantee it!

We'll be set up in the beautiful tree lined parking lot of Pedal the Planet and Fast Signs, right next door to the Glenn Auto Mall on Richmond Rd. It's just a hop, skip and a jump outside of Man 'O War Blvd. Parking is right there so you don't have to drive around hunting for a spot to park. The parking lot is also paved and that makes it very stroller and wheelchair friendly!
