Market at the Mill update

By Melody Hartsell
For the Salisbury Post
Miller and Sons Produce had Silver Queen corn, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, cantaloupe, watermelon, red and white potatoes, green beans, peaches, okra, green peppers, onions and a nice variety of tomatoes. Honey is also available.
Karrikerís Plants & Produce had cabbage, potatoes, tomatoes, squash, zucchini, okra, peaches and wonderful scuppernong grapes. The grapes only lasted about 30 minutes at my house ó they were so sweet and juicy!
Sweet Pickle Bakery offered oatmeal cookies, whoopie pies, granola (15 different ingredients, including dried mangos, apricot, cranberry, pecans, cashews, just to name a few), croutons, crostinis and four varieties of bread: eight grain, marble rye, sourdough and oatmeal. If you donít get to the market early youíll miss out on their signature cream horns. They sell out quickly, and if you eat just one, youíll know why.
You can still enter your watermelon in the Biggest Watermelon Contest, sponsored by Goodman Farm Supply. There are categories for adults and youth, with a $100 first prize for each.
The watermelons must be grown in Rowan County, and you must be pre-registered. You can bring them to the Farmers Market weekly to be weighed; more than one entry is allowed.
Winners will be announced on September 30th.
Market at the Mill is open each Friday from 4-7 p.m. through October.
Market at the Mill is located at 308 N. Main St. China Grove. For more information, call Market Manager Alan Goodman at 704-857-5938.
