Many farms are not here and will be back in the Spring, but there are plenty of stands and a wide enough variety of produce to keep us going until then.  Shushan has hydroponic tomatoes and herbs, Two Guys has greens and herbs, and Lani is here today with greens and root vegetables (although Lani does say they'll be here on and off during the winter). Lani has fresh peanuts, turmeric, and other unique offerings.  Many stands such as Hoeffner, S&SO, Paffenroth, and Miglorelli have root vegetables and Locust Grove, Breezy Hill, Caradonna and others have apples and ciders.

Quattro's, Violet Hill, and Flying Pig are here with poultry and other proteins, and Violet Hill and Quattro's have fresh eggs.  Oak Grove and Flying Pig have pork products and Quattro's has pheasant sausages and other prepared meats.  Berried Treasures has prepared meals and other items along with potatoes.
