A bit of fall is in the air these days and with fall comes Jim Sellers’s Apples! I look forward to his apples every year. He is famous in this area for his apples, and he is one of the first members of the market which began 15 years ago in September. Come on down and celebrate the bounty of veggies to be found at the market this time of year. You can find us at Bridge Park from 9 – noon on Saturday. Family Art at the Market will be from 10 – 12 under the pavilion. Check us out on Instagram #jacksoncountyfarmersmarket and FB Glorious Jackson County Farmers Market.
I can hardly believe that it is already the middle of August! All sorts of veggies can be found at the Market these days, I even spied a pile of pumpkins last week! Backwoods Bakery will be back at the market, however please note that it will be the last week for at least a month for Walter and Joanne of Pineapple Sage Herb Farm. Make sure to purchase any herbs and spices that you need for the coming month this weekend, and don’t forget to pet the cat! JIm Sellers will be there with some early apples.
Veggies are in full force. Ron and Cathy of Vegenui are headed out of town for the month of August and have a plethora of Soybeans to sell: Here is their ad:
SOYBEANS ARE HERE! EDAMAME AVAILABLE! This Saturday 8/1 only at the Jackson County Farmers Market fresh soybeans from Vegenui Garden will be for sale. They are grown by Ron and Cathy Arps. The price is $3.50 per pound, or 3# for $10.
Next chance for Vegenui soybeans will be the middle of August, so stock up!
Blueberries will be in full force, eggs, sweet corn, last week we had walnuts – possibly they will be back.
It is the First Saturday Scavenger Hunt so bring your kids to the Info Booth (10 – 12) and when they are done with the Scavenger Hunt they have a chance to win a prize (while they last).
A word of warning: Backwoods Bakery will not be at the Market this week. :(
Also, we will not be having Family Art at the Market this week either. Stay tuned for next week’s project!!
