At the Market this Saturday: another day of bountiful produce from beans to eggplants and squash to tomatoes and peppers, zukes, cukes and melons, and nearly everything you could want. We’ve also have honey, pork, lamb, beef, and goat as well as dairy products and mozzarella and goat cheese. Add in herbs and spices, and take some blueberries home before they’re all gone. Pottery, botanical specialties, cleaning products, beautiful bird feeders and wood crafts await you. (It’s not too early to think about holiday gifts.) Some of the vendors will have samples for you so take time to visit with each one. Family Art at The Market will be here for the younger set.
It’s also Market Feast Saturday and Neil Dawson and friends will be offering you some very fine green tomato delights from fried green tomatoes to sweet or savory pies. You won’t want to miss this unique culinary array. Paired with Backwoods Bakery bread and a cold root beer from Heinzelmannchen brewery and the day is complete. Market Feast is from 10am-12 on a donation basis.
