Farmers' Market Coop of East Liberty Update

Posted 10/11/2013 9:59am by Miranda Combs.

Update for Saturday, October 12th

Hello farmers market fans.  Fall is here and we have many locally grown fall items at the market this week.  These include cider, apples, brussels sprouts, pumpkins, gourds, squash, concord grapes, etc.  At the same time, we still have lots of "summer" items like tomatoes and peppers.  This is probably the last week for sweet corn.

See you at the market.
