Some views of my farmers market. It’s very early in the season, so a bit less than half the venders have started appearing. It’s mostly starts, flowers, and greens this time of year. From talking to the folks there over the years, I know there’s one farm here that’s all conventional and one all organic. The rest fall in the “mostly organic” bucket where they grow organic as much as possible. Robran Farms for example has let me know that they spray a couple things including broccoli…otherwise they end up as bouquets of worms 😀
Some starts from Mary Lynn’s Country Harvest. They are a 4th Gen produce farm that does some flowers and starts in spring, which is pretty common to see. I’m not sure when they find time to farm as they hit 5 different markets in the area so they are selling 7 days a week.
This was the prettiest sight of the day. This spread was from CentGraf Farms. The second small cutesy stall that was still being setup is theirs as well.
Bowers Produce really goes all out with flowers and starts in spring. From what I remember they had the largest produce spread as well. They are the one that is all conventional.
Apple Holler is very well known throughout the area. It’s a 60 acre orchard that grows 30 varieties of apples and some additional u-picks. They are an attraction type farm that has lots of events, a restaurant, and widely marketed bakery items.
