Corn, tomatoes, melons of all shapes and sizes; it’s summer. The fruit factory has table grapes. As more heirloom variety seeds have come on the market, our farmers are bringing more heirloom vegetables to market. Lots of different kinds of spinach and cucumbers – ask the farmer which one is best for your recipe.

Dry Creek Peach is back just in time for arctic gems to be in season.    Michele  Anna Jordan says ;” it is the single most delicious peach I have ever tasted.”  Perfect for Bellinis
