It’s a great time for fruit at the Market – we have peaches, blueberries, blackberries, and now apples are here! Wild’s Apple Farm joins us this week with the first apples of the season! And Pete’s Peaches will have two varieties new for the season – Garnet Beauty and Earliglo. But veggies are not taking a back seat! We’ll have tomatoes, cucumbers, beets, carrots, squash, onions, garlic, herbs, cauliflower, green beans, cabbage, eggplant, mushrooms, and lots of greens!
Lick Ice Cream and Maplewood Farms are out this week but the rest of our full time vendors will be there – including Freedom Valley Farm who was out last week. This is Week 2 for our part-time vendors but Russell Sheep Company is with us to make up for being out last week!
Other Market News
We are still working on finding the best place for our recycle/compost /landfill trash cans. This week Green With Indy is working with us by moving their tent next to Hubbard & Cravens. We hope this central location will work well for all our customers. While you are there, learn about their residential composting service!
