Don’t forget Thursday’s market from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm for local goodness. It’s a great alternative if you can’t make Saturday morning, or if you need a few things to tide you over until Saturday. It is smaller than our Saturday market, but there are produce, meats, eggs, honey and baked goods available. And the hours are convenient for those on campus!
Produce showing up Thursday and Saturdays seems to be tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, green beans, summer squash, zucchini, cabbage, onions and a few greens. There’s always a surprise!
Saturday’s market is 9 am to noon and here are what some of vendors will be bringing:
Invermos Valley Farms will have pastured beef and has new offerings of summer sausage, pepperoni, italian beef crumbles and thin-sliced sirloin in 16 oz. packages. Check out there deals on package buying. Want a 1/4, 1/2 or 1/8 of a beef? They have it.
Ed Rakow will have vegetables and greens, banana and zucchini breads, and eggs (hopefully his family has returned and he has helpers to pick his blueberries!)
