local produce, some naturally grown

I would highly recommend inquiring about the produce you purchase from each vendor. I believe the only organically grown produce comes from Veenstra's and a fellow who pays for the "organic" label. Veenstra's offers quite a variety, and the guys who sell at market are pretty pleasant to deal with. There is a nice herb-growing woman who runs Greenthoughts Garden and sells good-quality herbs and soaps, as well as other specialists in honey, baked goods, and hot peppers. Throughout the season you can find strawberries, apples, peaches and lots of seconds! My hope for the Capitol Farmer's mkt is more naturally grown produce, more vendors, and more craft days!
