Support your local growers + food producers.
Enjoy summer's bounty as we close out July this Friday!

Tomatoes are coming in strong on all of our farms now. Even if the heirlooms look a little less perfect on the outside due this hot, dry weather—now is the time to savor the flavor & variety! The heat has naturally slowed lettuce production for a bit, so focus on vegetable salads using cucumbers, tomatoes, abundant flavorful herbs, and microgreens! Watermelon & corn made their debut last week, and more is expected Friday. Blackberries are becoming more plentiful. A variety of peaches & nectarines are available now, including those sweet little Saturn/donut peaches. So much local goodness all around...and that's just the produce!

Preorders are still welcomed & appreciated by vendors who have the option, so find this week's lineup below, and place orders by the deadlines noted.

A note about the weather on market days: With storms being unpredictable throughout summer, we will pause operations if conditions are unsafe, but otherwise, we're committed to being there—rain or shine! Check Facebook & Instagram for updates if you're unsure.
