Things are winding down, encouraged by last Saturday's Snow Storm, but most Wednesday stands are here.
I hope you love squash, potatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, hot peppers, apples, and pears, because those are the best looking produce to be found in the market. Paffenroth has black salsify, fresh horseradish, and other interesting novelties, and Stokes and Mountain Sweet Berry have great Italian sauce tomatoes. There are a few stands with heirloom tomatoes as well, but that season is really pretty much over. Sweet potato fans will find excellent ones at many stands in the market and Stokes and others do have lettuces. Bodhitree, Stokes, Paffenroth, and others have braising greens as well. Stokes, Keith, and Two Guys have herbs and Shushan has hydroponic greens and tomatoes. There are plenty of sugar and cheese pumpkins at Sycamore, Oak Grove, and other stands. Van Houten, Sycamore, Oak Grove, and others have big beautiful cauliflowers and broccoli. Eckerton and Oak Grove have many kinds of delicious hot peppers.
