This Week at the Market: August 4th

With the temperatures forecasted to to be in the mid-90’s for Sunday’s market, we have decided to close the Kids and Community Booths at 1:30 p.m. The market will remain open until at 2:00 p.m. We will continue to monitor the weather, so please make sure to check our website for any closure updates.


Piles of pickling cucumbers.It’s that time of year to start thinking about pickling and canning. This week there will be pickling cucumbers, green beans, cabbage, beets, and dill for all of your pickling and canning needs. There will also be cherries, apricots, and peaches if you prefer something sweeter to can.

The peppers and tomatoes are continuing to multiply at the market, and corn, greens, carrots, and several varieties of beans will continue to be plentiful as well.

Dragonfly Forge is scheduled at the market this Sunday, so bring your knives and tools that need to be sharpened. For a complete list of vendors, visit our market map.
