– Eagle Farms introduces green tomatoes (ready to fry) and zebra tomatoes that are striped green and red when fully ripe.
– The green beans from Dawn’s Greenhouse have been raised without chemicals or pesticides.
– Country Gardens offers living salad in the form of romaine lettuce growing in pots, to be harvested as you need it.
– At Landis Gourmet Mushrooms, you’ll find backyard apples, never touched by sprays or polish of any kind, ideal for applesauce.

– Seng Yang has added beets, turnips and fresh flowers to their Asian vegetables.
