High Heat Means Hefty Harvest!
Indulge in Summer's Finest
The harvest doesn’t come to a halt because the temps rise, in fact the heat will only increase
the bounty of fresh tomatoes, peaches and sweet corn available this weekend. Dress in light colors, don your sun hat, grab your water bottle, and come support your local farmers. If you don't you'll have to endure an entire week without local food - and that would be really sad.
