Farmer's Daughters
Hello everyone! Thanks so much for braving the hot weather to join us at the market last Saturday. It's always great to see all of you! We planted our corn for silage around the first of July; and this hot humid weather has it already head high! This is our first year of planting corn, so you can bet we are excited! The cows sure will be happy this winter. We're also waiting for 9 more babies; all due within the next month, so between cows, crops and kids - we manage to stay busy! In between all of that, I'll find time to bake for you! This week we'll have zucchini pies, breads, muffins, bars and much more! Hope to see you Saturday!

Shooting Star Farm
I remember the days when mid-August meant the bigger tomatoes were just starting to come in. Now that we grow many of them in an unheated hoophouse, tomato season starts at least two weeks sooner – even though hoophouse plants go in at the same time as field plants. We are bursting with cherry tomatoes, heirlooms, and saladette varieties this week. Lots of great red slicers, too. What goes great with tomatoes? Nearly everything else that’s ready this time of year! We’ll have eggplants, gold and green zucchini and pattypan squash, green bell peppers, sweet green Italian frying peppers, jalapeno peppers, Italian bottle onions, white onions, cilantro, basil, parsley, thyme, cucumbers (thin-skinned and regular slicing cukes), bulk beets (limited amount), bunched carrots, curly green kale and lacinato kale, Swiss chard, romaine lettuce, red leaf lettuce, baby lettuce heads of all kinds, salad mix, arugula, fennel, and celery. A beautiful Saturday is in store. See you then!
Sweet Earth Garden and Vintage China
Sweet Earth Gardens will be at the market with Cone flowers, Dahlias, Zinnias, Gerberas, Phloxs, Sunflowers, Cosmos and more.
Wayne’s Woodworking and Engraving
I'm a small local woodworking shop specializing in a variety of handcrafted and engraved products. We will be displaying a variety of handcrafted cherry and butternut baskets, engraved wooden breadboards, rulers and key fobs. We will also be demonstrating our needlework frames, a lap table and hand knit designer scarves. Wayne Banaszak
