The Recessional Continues

Berried Treasures, Eckerton, Sycamore, Locust Grove, Stokes, Oak Grove, Caradonna,and others have tomatoes. Mountain Sweet Berry had the last of their excellent sauce tomatoes and Cherry Lane had stellar heirloom tomatoes and San Marzano sauce tomatoes today. Norwich Meadows also has tomatoes but says there will be a frost in their area tonight, so their summer squashes are having their last market day today.

Most stands have what they had last week; looking carefully, you will see that things are quietly disappearing. Cheerful Cherry says next weekend will be their last for the season, and that today is the last day for their apples. They have tasty fruit jams and hot pepper spread and will have those and grapes next weekend. I tried the raspberry jam and it was very good.

Berried Treasures has their stand at the West end of the market near 14th Street near Buzzard Crest and Nemeth. They have moved from the middle of 17th Street and are here with all sorts of cherry and other heirloom tomatoes.

Dutch Mill has ended their lycianthus season but has beautiful gladiolas, sunflowers, and other flowers.

Mountain Sweet Berry has the last of their great sauce tomatoes today and has a variety of small potatoes, wild arugula, and sucrine lettuce. Stokes, Paffenroth, Miglorelli, Keith, Norwich, Gorzynsky, and others have delicious looking lettuces and other greens. Stokes has a wide selection of cut herbs and delicious produce and there are several stands with apples and pears, including Terhune, Breezy Hill, Locust Grove, and Caradonna. D'Attolico has sweet carrots, sprouts, lettuce mix, and other tasty vegetables and S&SO has good and reasonably priced produce as well.
