Farmers Market update

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, June 1, 2011

This week expect a bit more locally grown produce. Correll Farms, Country Garden, Cress Farm, Eagle Produce Farm, Kraus Family Farm and Millers Produce have cucumbers, squash, onions and zucchini. The much desired first cucumbers have arrived and will now be available all through the summer. Have you tried the different varieties of zucchini? There are regular zucchini, yellow, green tiger and 8-ball which is good for grilling. Squash selections are yellow, green and patty pan. Of course, there are many other vegetables savailable, including several types of cabbage, beets, onions, lettuce, sugar snap peas, radishes and new potatoes in white, red or blue.
As always there are plants, cut flowers, herbs, baked goods, meats and craft items, including quilted items from Center of Creation or goat milk soap from Dinglehill Farm.
McCombs will have their famous pimento cheese and chicken salad and the Funky Pepper offers salsa and relish.
I would like to encourage you to visit the Salisbury Farmers Market website for more information about the vendors and what they provide each week. Remember that you can use your debit or credit card. WIC, food stamps and senior vouchers are also accepted.
