Tomato season may be over, but there will still be plenty of fresh veggies available at this weekend's Wrightstown Farmers Market. Local farmers are expected to be selling apples, beets, broccili, leeks and much more.
Market manager Robin Hoy provided the following summary of what will be offered at Saturday's market:
"We'll have freshly picked apples, leeks, broccoli, cabbages, celery root, beets, turnips, lettuce, chard, collards, kale, mizuna, raddichio, radishes, parsley, winter squash galore and freshly pressed apple cider. If we're lucky, sweet corn, sweet and hot peppers and eggplant will have survived the frost, and there could be bok choy, carrots and cauliflower. We'll also have potatoes, garlic and onions."
"We'll have fresh, hormone and antibiotic-free, pasture-raised chicken for two more weeks, eggs, mozzarella and goat cheeses, smoothies, yogurt, milk, pasture-raised pork and 100% grass-fed beef. Prepared foods available are: sauces, fruit butters, apple juice, gluten free and vegan products, breads and baked goods. All natural dog food; fair trade, organic, locally roasted coffee; and handmade soaps, lotions and jewelry are added features."
Local musicians Natali and Sarina will be playing pop tunes for shoppers.
