Good Morning - Market is OPEN!

Hard to believe its “Fall” when the temperatures were in the 90’s last week. The heat takes a toll on some of the Fall crops but they will jump back when it starts getting cooler again.

Our Market is full of a great selection of Meats, Fresh Produce and Fruit, Fermented Produce and Dried Fruit and Nuts. Pumpkins are still available for Fall Decorations and eating. This is also the time to plant bulbs and shrubs for next Spring.

Please tell your neighbor, co-worker, family and friends about our On-line Market. Several ‘Live’ markets are closing for the season BUT REMEMBER WE “DO NOT CLOSE (except after the Holiday briefly)

REMINDER: Halloween will be on a Wednesday this year, we will have DELIVERY ON TUESDAY.
