Some Stands Are Gone For the Season, Some Just For This Saturday, But Many Are Here.

Grazin'Acres and Oak Grove have beef cuts and Oak Grove and Flying Pig have pork. Flying Pig has chickens (and Grazin' may have them, too). PE&DD is here with cooked lobsters, raw shellfish, and fish, as well as crab cakes, lobster salad, and other prepared seafood.

S&SO and Beth's Farm Kitchen have great gift possibilities, including a basket of S&SO prepared foods and Beth's jams, chutneys, and cookbooks. Stokes has several kinds of their classic herb wreath. Speaking of wreaths, several stands have wreaths, trees, and other Christmas decorations, including Van Houten and Mountain Sweet Berry.

Paffenroth is here with several kinds of onion family vegetables, including leeks, cippolini, and shallots, many potato varieties, and other tasty produce. Gorzynski has a small but select offering of root vegetables as well as eggs. Stokes has cut herbs, greens, broccoli, cauliflower, lemon grass, and other excellent produce. Shushan has hydroponic greens and tomatoes.

Locust Grove has quinces, apples, and pears, as well as cider, and Caradonna has apples, pears, cider, and grapes. Hoeffner is here with their last tomatoes, as well as greens, squashes, and other vegetables. Gorzynski and Paffenroth have exquisite tiny purple topped turnips -- buy them now to cook with your Christmas bird, as Gorzynski will only be here for one more market.
