It looks like another great weekend for the New Albany Farmer’s Market…Holiday weekend…with great fruits and vegetables for your family gatherings.

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.  With fall on it’s way we will begin bringing some of our fall squashes… acorn, spaghetti and butternut.

It’s apple time…we will have some of our first picked apples of the season.  Gala apples are so popular because of their sweet taste, but more importantly their crisp, firm texture. They resist bruising, softening and other defects. Our Mutzu apples will be available in about two weeks they are a larger semi-sweet crisp apple, great for baking, sauce, drying and freezing.

We still 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 still also have Roma tomatoes by the bushel. If you contact us early we will bring them to the market on Saturday for pick up.

If anyone needs produce and would like me to make them a basket to have ready, 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.

Thanks for supporting us with your purchases at the market,

Val & Kenny
