The vegetable growers, bread bakers and cake makers are excited about kicking off their ninth season. Your regular market vendors will be back along with many new ones.

Locally grown produce and other products that you can expect to see at the first market will include sweet corn, potatoes, squash, cucumbers, snap beans, tomatoes, cabbage, mustard greens onions, honey, eggs, beef, pork and dairy products. As the summer heats up other selections will be available.
