Pumpkins and Grapes!! Last weeks of summer.

For all I know, there may have been pumpkins before today, but I didn't see them. Couldn't miss them today, though. Get your peaches while you can -- some stands are already finished with them. You can still get them from Caradonna, Oak Grove, and Kernan. There are still plenty of plums, including Red Jacket's good looking yellow variety, and Locust Grove still has nectarines and some plums as well as this fall's Devoe pears and apples. Several stands have watermelon and other melons.

Eckerton, Locust Grove, Sycamore, Keith, Cherry Lane, Oak Grove, Stokes, and Bodhitree have plenty of heirloom tomatoes, and Mountain Sweet Berry has their excellent sauce tomatoes. Max Creek Hatchery has gorgeous wild watercress and Berried Treasures has beautiful beans, wild watercress, zucchini blossoms, squashes, and other tasty vegetables and herbs as well as tiny wild blueberries, red and golden raspberries, and Tri-Star strawberries. Mountain Sweet Berry has Tri-stars, wild baby arugula, tiny potatoes, and spiglarello broccoli. Sycamore has beautiful sweet red peppers and Eckerton and Oak Grove have a wide variety of hot peppers. Paffenroth and Miglorelli are here with great produce and S&SO has their salad vegetables, mini vegetables, and boxes of onions and peppers.

Andrews Honey is here, as well as Beth's Jam, Cayuga (bread, flours, beans), and Hot Kitchen (breads, rolls, and other baked goods).
