Buzzard Krest grapes and grape juices are back! It's a great tomato and peach day, but the season is changing, so seize the day!

Oak Grove, Locust Grove, and others have delicious white and yellow peaches. In addition to those, Caradonna and others have nectarines and many kinds of plum.  Pears and apples are coming into the mix, so enjoy the stone fruit while you may! Locust Grove and others have grapes, including Fantasy Fruit's champagne variety.
Van Houten Watermelon
Norwich Meadows Farm, Stokes, Oak Grove, Eckerton,Keith, Cherry Lane,  and others have great heirloom and other tomatoes. Oak Grove and Eckerton have fantastic varieties of hot and sweet pepper and S&SO has generous boxes of mixed hot peppers.
Cato Corner cheeses
Many stands have many varieties of eggplant, including Lani, S&SO, Miglorelli, D'Attolico, and others.  Norwich Meadow and Lani have shelling beans and other beans and Van Houten, Oak Grove, S&SO and others have several kinds of melon, including watermelon and NY State canteloupe.
Keith's peppers and eggplants
Paffenroth and Stokes have unique greens and herbs and most of the stands I've mentioned here have a wide variety of squashes and eggplants.  I saw a couple of winter squash varieties this morning, a propos of the sneaking in of the Fall.
