Harvests get a little wonky this time of year but there is still plenty of goodness at market this week! Spreading Oaks tomatoes are still in harvest but slowing until the second crops of tomatoes finish growing but right now Jason's second crop of cucumbers are in along with muscadines, sweet potatoes, green beans, peppers, butternut squash, and eggplant. Jason also has watermelons and so does Ms. Sue. Also look for Ms. Sue's shelled peas, preserved vegetables, honey, and pickled eggs. Five Cedars Farm will be to market with tomatoes and Ms. Adrianna will be to market with grass-fed beef.

Footehills Farmhouse is harvesting the first of the figs and sweet Georgia candy roasters along with peppers, eggplant, fresh herbs, patty pan squash, and garlic. Louanna with Footehills Farmhouse also has farm made soaps and other bath products including lip balms and beard oil. Donald will have tomatoes and okra. Morning Glory will have their jams & jellies along with green tomatoes, baked goods, pork, and chicken. Robilland Farm will be to market this week with pet cow milk products and fresh ground wheat bread. Chef Suga's pimento cheeses will be at market including her vegan varieties. Be sure to stop by Dewey's for a fried pie along with his pickles, jams and jellies. Stop by Fitzgerald Fruit Farm for fresh peaches and the first harvest gala apples.

That Foreign Chick's Bakery needs this week off to finish moving but will be back next week. C&L Farms will be busy building a new hydroponic lettuce growing system so we can have fresh lettuces all year and won't be back to market until October. Also, Bella Vita Mushrooms are between harvests for a few weeks.
