Notes from the Farmers Market

* Local tomatoes are safe to eat. Farmers Market President David Correll says North Carolina tomatoes were not even in production when the recent salmonella outbreak occurred.
“There is no relationship between local tomatoes and those grown farther away,”says Correll, of Correll Farms in Cleveland.
* Local green beans are beginning to come in.
* Potatoes are beginning to be available in generous quantities.
* Corn will be available in good quantity.
* You’ll find enough squash to invite cooking experiments.
* Wild Turkey Farms will be at the market on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month, selling beef, pork, chicken and produce raised without insecticides or chemicals. New offerings include smoked products such as bacon and ham.
* A food vendor, Chips R US, will be at the market from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. selling a variety of gourmet hot dogs with chips and drinks. The Farmers Market is open 7 a.m.-2 p.m. Wednesday and Saturday. It is located at the corner of Bank and South Main streets.
