Eckerton and Oak Grove Have Great Hot Peppers!!

Catch Buzzard Crest's delicious grapes and grape juice while you can! They are aiming for Thanksgiving, but the freaky weather may change that. I've already got a couple of pints in the freezer. Now is also a good time to buy San Marzano tomatoes from Northshire, Cherry Lane, and others for your winter supply of sauce.

There are a lot of winter squashes in the market already, at Norwich Meadows, Paffenroth, Oak Grove, and other stands. I've even seen pumpkins, although it looks like S&SO will not have their usual massive display this year. Paffenroth, Sycamore, and others have corn and Sycamore will be getting their second load, picked today, at around 11AM. Mountain Sweet Berry had Tri-Star strawberries when I went by at 8:30, but it looked as if they were going fast! They also have excellent sauce tomatoes.

Stokes Farm's heirloom tomatoes looked great this morning, as did Keith's, Oak Grove's, and several others. Cherry Lane has beautiful little fairytale eggplants and basil. Northshire has cardoons, puntarella, and other unique vegetables as well as eggs. Quattro's and Violet Hill are here with poultry and eggs and Flying Pig has tasty sausages and pork cuts. Ronnybrook is having a special on ice cream and Milk Thistle is here with milk. Tonjes has buttermilk, cheeses, and yogurt.
