Farmers Market Coop of East Liberty Update

Posted 9/6/2012 10:46pm by Val Kennedy.

Update for Saturday September 8th

Hello everyone.  I spoke to all the farmers this week and have a nice update below.  We still have many great summer vegetables including corn, tomatoes and peppers.  Watermelons are still going strong.  Sadly, peaches are all done.  But we are also starting to get in fall items such as apples and squash.  So please come out to the market and support your farmers.
