Salisbury Farmers Market update

By Katherine Jones
For The Salisbury Post
New to the Salisbury Farmers Market last week was the much awaited locally grown corn. Miller Farm has begun harvesting and you can expect to see corn this week. Come early because it sells out fast. They also have half runners and stringless green beans.
The first okra of the season was available at the Eagle Produce booth. There was a good supply of small, tender pods and you will be able to obtain okra for the remainder of the growing season.
Have you ever heard of a candy onion? Correll Farms has grown these onions and they are exceptionally good. They are larger than other varieties and much sweeter.
Squash, zucchini, beets, potatoes, cabbage and onions were plentiful last week as well as cucumbers and tomatoes. There were also peppers, sugar snap peas, egg plant, kale, collards, radishes, carrots and much more. In all there were nine vendors displaying fresh produce which provided the shoppers with a tremendous variety of seasonal fruit and vegetables.
Plants for landscaping and containers were still being offered in abundance, both annuals and perennials. Some of the favorite perennials on hand were butterfly bush, Russian sage and cone flower. Available in annuals were the ever favorite zinnia as well as coleus and impatience. Among the herbs offered were rosemary, sage, basil and parsley. There were numerous ready-made hanging baskets and containers that were very colorful and impressive.
As always, there are also baked goods, meat and handicrafts available as well.
Debit and credit cards are accepted as well as WIC and senior vouchers and food stamps.
For more information, visit www.salisburyfarmersmarket.com. The Farmers Market is located in downtown Salisbury on the corner of South Main and Bank streets. It is open on Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Saturday from 7 a.m. to noon.
