The markets are done for the weekend!! Thanks to all for stopping by our booths and supporting local certified organic produce. The Meridian Market is especially competitive with all the carried produce i.e. folks who just buy wholesale produce, repackage it to look like homegrown produce and sell it, often fooling the customers to believe it was grown by a real farmer. There are advantages and disadvantages in having those folks at a Farmers Market. Remember to ask the vendor “did you grow this produce?” and you will hopefully get an honest answer.
We are very close to exploding with produce: the tomatoes, especially cherry tomatoes are sooooo close, the lisianthus is but moments away. We will all have to get on our harvest hats and really get going.
