Squash, sugar snaps arriving at the market

This may be the last week for strawberries at the Salisbury Farmers Market as the weather warms and the season winds down. Salisbury Farmers Market Manager Harry Agner has this market update for local shoppers:
• Local summer squash are now here with yellow and zucchini as well as patty pan squash.
• Superior grown cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and lettuces.
• Collards, normally produced in the fall, are now available.
• Asparagus is also available at the market.
• Fresh local garlic.

• Sugar-snap peas are also available at the market this week.
• 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 best selection as some items may be limited. Local growers make a special effort to produce clean and safe produce for their shoppers. The temptation is almost overwhelming not to eat a fresh berry right out the container. Be safe and help the vendors by washing all fruit and vegetables thoroughly for consumption.
The market opens at 8 a.m. to noon. The market has relocated to the corner of South Jackson and West Fisher Streets in downtown Salisbury near Rowan Public Library earlier this spring. Go to www.salisburyfarmersmarket.com for more information about the market and its vendors.
