Notes from the Farmer’s Market

– The market season is winding down. The end of this month will be the end of this year’s official market. After Sept. 15, vendors will no longer be required to have produced at least 50 percent of the value of the goods they sell.
– Meantime, Miller Produce still has Silver King corn, which is ideal for canning and, if refrigerated, holds its quality for up to a week.
– Landis Gourmet Mushrooms will have wild muscadine grapes grown on their property.
– Sen Yang is beginning to have fall produce, as well as such Asian items as lemon grass and Thai hot peppers.
– The Olde Homestead has expanded its line of baked goods to include a new seven-grain bread, shoofly pie, coffee cake and sugar-free items. Special orders are welcome.
– Dawn’s Greenhouse has dried apples.
– Several vendors now have butter beans and October beans and crowder peas.
The market, at the corner of South Main and Bank streets, is open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., Wednesday and Saturday.
