It’s another rainy summer day. The market goes on rain or shine. Produce has been harvested and is ready to bring to market today. The amount of work our producers go to in order to bring us just picked, local tasty food is incredible. Please come out today and each week during the season and support our community market.
Today the market will be inside the park administrative building with some produce vendors perhaps setting up in tents just outside the building.
We are fortunate to have local produce vendors with green houses and hoop houses. We have a new produce vendor joining us today; Corn Creek Greenhouses. Along with Corn Creek bringing green house and garden tomatoes; they will have Swiss chard, turnips, yellow crookneck squash and a variety of potted herbs and plants (including strawberry plants).
Rhonda with Cadet Creek will be at the market today. She also has green house tomatoes along with potatoes, squash, cucumbers, beets, green beans, onions and more.
Lisa with Eilerman Bros Farms and Orchards will have her homemade pies and turnovers as well as black raspberries, peaches, blueberries, peppers and zucchini
Another new vendor today is Ian with Stellar Sweets. Ian will be bringing homemade cookies, chocolate caramel oat bars, gourmet rice krispie treats, cake batter balls, apple crisps in mason jars, and pineapple upside down cake in mason jars.
