Jasper Farmers Market Report
8/5/2019 ~ by Heather Giambra
Whoa!! The veggies are going fast! Joel Edmonds brought tomatoes and large stuffing size delicious bell peppers. J&J Farms had squash, cucumbers, tomatoes and more. And The Pie Lady didn't have veggies, but she certainly has her raving fans and sold out quickly! Fortunately, there are other vendors with delicious choices. Plenty to drool about, including, first hint of Fall, Pumpkin Rolls brought by Brandy Hays.
There was a line at Zach Henson's tent first thing in the morning. He brought the first peas of the season along with so many other choices his blackboard list was full top to bottom! Of course, there were several veggies brought by several vendors including tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes. BLT, yum! 'Mater sandwich, yum! Stuffed, yum! Salads, sauces, and just for eating, tomatoes!
Barry Prichett from the Red Apple Barn brought apples this time; Honeycrisp, Gala, and Golden Supreme. He had peaches as well, but for how much longer? Better get up early next Saturday.
Phil Siebel brought large fig trees loaded with fruit. Now is a great time to get one or two for your yard. They grow so well here. Phil can tell you how to grow them and. answer any questions you might have.
Remember to stop by Wednesday afternoon to pick up some veggies and other goodies. Open from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. every Wednesday through September. We appreciate your business both days and your participation helps our Farmers Market to exist, courtesy of the Pickens County Master Gardeners.
Next Saturday, from 7:30-12, the MG tent will be up and the Master Gardener Farmers Market Program will be; Get Your Summer Garden Back in Shape. Despite the heat there are things to be done before Fall arrives. For instance, it's the best time to divide daylilies and hostas. Come by the tent and get some information to make your garden it's best!
