Last Friday, Miller and Sons, Tranquility Farms, and Sweet Pickle were set up in front of the China Grove Roller Mill in the shade. Many people were taking advantage of the locally or North Carolina-grown vegetables and fruits.
Selection included cantaloupes, tomatoes, corn, yellow squash, zucchini, potatoes, peppers, okra, green beans, cucumbers, muscadines and peaches.
Vegetable medley dishes could be easily made from a variety of the vegetables for easy and delightful meals and side dishes.
Local honey continues to be available.
Watermelons can be weighed for the Largest Watermelon Contest each Friday at the market. Contest ends Sept. 30. More than one entry is allowed. Watermelons must be grown in Rowan County. For more information call Alan Goodman at 704-857-5938.
The China Grove Farmerís Market at the China Grove Roller Mill Museum is open each Friday from 4-7 p.m.
