Sycamore is back! (with strawberries, rhubarb, and basil) Hodgson's is back with peonies! Cherry Lane's sugar snaps! Mountain Sweet Berry's tri-star strawberries are here!

Stokes has their delicious cherry tomatoes and asparagus today, as well as generous bunches of cut herbs, great hydroponic lettuces, and beautiful potted plants.  Oak Grove has potted sunflowers, an excellent variety of heirloom tomato and pepper plants, and lush herb plants. Silver Heights has vegetable and herb potted plants and Binder has a wide choice of herbs in pots as well.

There are several varieties of strawberry around the market and it's difficult to choose, as I found out when I ended up with three kinds myself! Cherry Lane, Phillips, Sycamore, Lani, Stokes, and others have various large kinds and Mountain Sweet Berry has the first of their Tri-stars.
I'm eating Stokes Farm's cherry tomatoes like candy. So tomatoey and sweet! I picked up some fava beans from Eckerton, where there were also tempting lettuces, other greens, and radishes, as well as sugar snaps.  Several stands, including Eckerton, Lani, Norwich Meadows, and others have good-looking salad mixes, and Paffenroth has puntarelle, mizuna, and other choices.
Rose Meadow's fragrant country roses
To see these and other stands: Greenmarket Saturday
