Late spring find artichokes, arugula, basil varieties, beets, bok choy, broccoli, carrots, Swiss chard, cilantro, collards, dandelion greens, green onions, fennel, garlic chives, herbs, kale, kohlrabi, leeks, lettuces, mint, mustard greens, parsnips, pecans, radishes, salad mixes, sorrel, spinach, red and sweet potatoes, turnips, watercress, and more. Also find greenhouse raised cucumbers, snap peas, green beans, several tomato varieties, yellow and zucchini squash, and strawberries.

Look for pastured beef, pork, and chicken raised on a natural diet. Several vendors bring eggs from free range chickens. Captain George brings his Gulf seafood.

Dairy products have expanded yet again with the addition of pasteurized goat milk to go along with the drinkable goat milk yogurt, pimento cheese, goat and cows’ milk artisan cheeses, and butter.

Rounding out the offerings find small batch prepared foods, sauerkraut, lemonade, popsicles, breads, gluten free pound cake, pasta, snacks, pies, cookies, honey, varied food mixes, whole grains including rice mixes and oatmeal, coffee, tamales, salsa and chips, doggie biscuits, olive oil, vinegar,  seasonings, and chocolate truffles.

Bedding plants, vegetable and herb starts are just right for planting now.

Our farmers use various growing methods. To clarify, our website notes their growing methods on each farmer’s description page. Look for Certified Organic, Sustainably Grown, or Conventional growing methods noted at the end of their descriptions.

We are a local, seasonal farmers market, meaning that our farmers bring only what is
ripening in  their fields this week and some produce has a short growing season.
Eating with the seasons takes education, awareness and patience!
