This is the best time of year to come out to the market! The farms are overflowing with plentiful produce, they still have fantastic tomatoes and cucumbers but the apples and squash are starting to roll in too.
Here are some highlights from our vendors this week:

The Labor Day weekend is upon us! To celebrate the (unofficial) end of summer we will have free watermelon for everyone at the Farmer’s Market so stop by our table to get a slice. There is a chill in the air which means some of the best Farmer’s Market days are upon us. Soon we’ll start seeing crisp apples, apple cider doughnuts and squash popping up everywhere.
The vendors have a lot of variety this time of year so make sure you stop by to stock up for your Labor Day parties. Grab some dry aged meat for grilling or fresh poultry & eggs from Grant Family Farm. Buttery croissants from Swiss Bakers would make a fantastic breakfast for your visitors, or pick up some corn to grill & tomatoes for salads.
