Spring vegetables going strong
Published 12:00 am Friday, May 24, 2013
With warmer weather returning, the Salisbury Farmers Market vendors have increased the number of fresh vegetables, plant materials and other items at the market. The market relocated to the corner of South Jackson and West Fisher streets in downtown Salisbury near the Rowan Public Library earlier this spring.
Freshly picked, locally grown strawberries are now at their peak with two or three more weeks of production. Salisbury Farmers Market Manager Harry Agner has this market update for local shoppers:
• Locally grown summer squash will make its first appearance this week.
• Cool, wet weather continues to provide shoppers with superior grown cauliflower, broccoli and lettuces.
• Asparagus is also available at the market.
• Large radishes.
• Cool weather continues to produce beautiful cut flowers available at the market.
• Goat milk soap for those with skin problems.
• Homemade dog treats are available.
• Home baked goods continue to be a market favorite.
It is important to shop early to get the best selection as some items may be limited. The market opens at 8 a.m. and wraps up at noon. Go to www.salisburyfarmersmarket.com for more information about the market and its vendors.
