SALISBURY — Summer weather has returned and summer vegetables are beginning to make their way into the market. Salisbury Farmers Market Manager Harry Agner has this market update for local shoppers:

• Local summer squash now here with yellow and zucchini, as well as patty pan squash.

• Superior grown Brussels sprouts.

• Collards, normally produced in the fall, are now available.

• Asparagus is also available at the market.

• Fresh local garlic.

• Some locally grown strawberries.

• Green beans have been popular and usually sell out early.

• Assorted beef, chicken and pork products.

• Local handmade cheese from Iredell County.

• Local field grown tomatoes have just arrived.

• Sweet corn will make its first appearance this summer.

• Early okra will also be available at the market.

• Sugar-snap peas are also available at the market this week.

• Goat’s milk soap for those with skin problems.
