Mountain Sweet Berry wasn't here when I checked out the market and D'Attolico hadn't arrived yet.  Sycamore hasn't put in an appearance either, but Eckerton is here with delicious greens, all kinds of lettuces, radishes, and other produce. Gorzynski has good-looking greens as well, and Hoeffner has great looking beets, carrots, rhubarb, and asparagus. Others with tasty asparagus: Cherry Lane, Stokes, Lani. Cherry Lane has their excellent greenhouse heirloom tomatoes and there's been a rumor of shelling peas that may not actually play out until next week.

I was too early to take pix of Caradonna, but they're here. Oak Grove and Binder are here with lush herb and other plants and Stokes has flowering plants as well as herb sets and cut herbs.  Durr has marvelous peonies and bearded irises along with other beautiful flowers, I Fiori has lovely lilies, and Duva has gorgeous irises as well.  Rose Meadow had some pretty flowers out when I went by, but I was too early for pictures.

Ignore the cat pictures in the album. I have no idea why Picasa did that!
