Chestnuts! Grapes from Buzzard Crest, Cheerful Cherry, and others! Cranberry Beans!

Eckerton has chestnuts and many kinds of peppers.  There are heirloom tomatoes in the market, but there are fewer varieties and some stands have only small and cherry types.  Gorzynski has beautiful organic lettuces and other vegetables, and Paffenroth has great looking leeks, carrots, potatoes, and other delicious produce.  Northshire has excellent Tuscan and other kale and peppers, and Stokes, Cherry Lane, and Cheerful Cherry have great sauce and other tomatoes.

Buzzard Crest had a deservedly long line when I passed them about half an hour ago, with eager grape and grape juice fans and wine lovers patiently waiting.  Cheerful Cherry has good looking concord grapes and tasty grape and other jellies.  Oak Grove has many kinds of sweet and hot peppers, heirloom tomatoes, and all kinds of winter squashes.  Oak Grove and Cayuga have interesting flours and Cayuga has great breads made from their flours.

Seatuck and PE&DD are here with fresh fish and seafood and Flying Pig and Violet Hill have pork products.  Violet Hill also has their tasty chickens and Quattro's has all sorts of poultry and poultry products as well as soups, venison, and sausages.

Nemeth has spray-free apples as well as baked goods. Caradonna, Terhune, Breezy Hill, and others have apples and pears, and you should check Locust Grove for quinces as well as apples, pears, and grapes.
