Okra & Beans

It looks like another great weekend for the New Albany Farmer’s Market…cooler temperatures   with great fruits and vegetables. With fall like temperatures we will begin bringing some of our fall squashes… acorn and butternut.

This Saturday at the market we will have tomatoes (many of Kenny’s 19 different varieties will be available), sweet corn, green beans -“Blue Lake” and “Roma”, okra, eggplant, peppers (it’s pepper season…we will have over 10 varieties, from the mildest to the hottest) zucchini-both golden as well as the traditional type, “Candy” onions, summer squash, cucumbers, Kenebec, Red Pontiac  and sweet potatoes.

We will have peaches this weekend and our Indiana grown seedless watermelons “Imagination”.  Both of these are coming to the end of their season so this will probably be the last weekend for them. It’s been a really good year for both and will be missed by many.

We have plenty of canning tomatoes available for those wanting them to make homemade salsa,  tomato juice, spaghetti sauce, canned tomatoes or anything else” tomato”.  Call or e-mail if you need them, we even have Roma tomatoes by the bushel this week.

If anyone needs produce and would like me to make them a basket to have ready for pick up, just e-mail me and let me know early in the day Friday.  I will have your order ready when you arrive on Saturday morning.

We also have a “Basket of the week” which includes a little bit of everything available the current week.  The “Weekly Basket” run $25 and always includes fruit when available.

Fall squashes are on their way!
