Last week of August, and summer is almost over...but not all the warm weather! And that makes for a nice, long growing season here in central NC. Our farmers take advantage of that by planting and harvesting vegetables and fruits right into the autumn.
Right now, there are still loads of tomatoes...hybrids, heirlooms, salad, slicing, cherry...a tomato variety for every need, from soup to sauce to salad! They also have peaches, peppers (both sweet and hot!), okra, cucumbers, green beans, and more.
And if you want to plant herbs in the garden or in pots for use inside during the winter, we've got those, too...and blueberry bushes and ornamentals!
Our bakery vendors can supply all sorts of breads, granola, fried apple pies, and cookies. Want something to spread on those fresh, homemade breads? We've got jams and jellies and local honey!
Of course, the cold months are on their way, and the nights will begin to be chilly. So, you can stop by our craft tables for handmade hats, scarves, shawls, neckwarmers, and cozy infant clothes (along with potholders, dishcloths, cute stuffed animals, pet beds, and cat toys!). We also have handmade goat milk soaps and lotions to help soothe both sunburned and winter-dry skin.
