Farmers Markets offer a lot more than fresh, good-tasting produce. They bring people together. Like an old-time town square, markets provide a place to exchange both goods and ideas. We grow more than produce. We grow relationships, and we grow jobs.
This is National Farmers Market week. To celebrate, we're offering customers a one-time special coupon. Look through this paper. You'll find a coupon you can use at The Market to buy produce, bread or jam. But it's only valid this Saturday, August 13.
If you're going to the State Fair in Lewisburg, bring a cooler and stop by for some snacks that are actually good for you. Our vendors normally have cookies, cinnamon rolls and zucchini bread-all with ingredients that your grandmother would recognize. Fresh-picked cucumbers and squash are refreshing when sliced and eaten raw. And they're handy, healthy dippers for your favorite dip.
While you're at The Market, check out the crafts on display. Steve and Connie sell a crocheted ﾑcan cozy' to keep drinks cold and hands dry. And it comes in camo for the hunters on your shopping list.
Rumor: reliable sources tell this reporter that Tim's sweet corn will be available at The Market this Saturday. Helpful hint: when you get home with fresh corn, store them with the stems in a little water. Don't overcook fresh corn. Unlike corn picked days or weeks earlier, fresh corn tastes best after only two to four minutes in boiling water.
