Fall crops are in the ground, peas are in harvest, muscadines are on the vine, and second crops of summer veggies are beginning to make it to market.

Spreading Oaks will be back to market this week with yellow squash, zucchini, field peas, tomatoes, cucumbers, okra, sweet potatoes, hot & sweet peppers, eggplant, radishes, salad turnips, muscadines & scuppernongs, butternut squash, and watermelon. Ms. Sue is planning to bring her veggies and canned goods to market this week along with help so she can take it easy. Look for Morning Glory Farms shelled peas, peppers, baked goods, pork and chicken, along with jams, jellies, & syrups, lemonade, and boiled p-nuts. Footehills Farmhouse has figs, okra, fresh herbs, and has been busy creating new spice mixes and a new pumpkin soap. Debbie with Five Cedars Farm will be to market this week with tomatoes, okra, and muscadines.

Ms. Adrianna's grass-fed beef is fully stocked and Donald's tomatoes and okra are still strong. Stop by That Foreign Chicks Bakery for Jana's breads and baked goods. Chef Suga's pimento cheeses will be to market and remember to stop by Dewey's for a fried pie, pickles, and jams and jellies.

Robilland Farm is skipping this week but will be back next week. C&L Farm Grows is building a new hydroponic lettuce growing system and will be back to market in October once everything is up and growing. Quiet Acres and Bella Vita Mushrooms are both between crops and will be back as soon as things finish growing.
