Fall is here but so is summer and spring

The market is bursting with cool and hot weather crops. There are peaches, melons and berries but there are also cauliflowers, potatoes, and winter squashes.

The Patch will have tomatoes through Thanksgiving. Crescent Moon’s beautiful peppers are just starting to be available -they are next to wonderful fragrant melons. The first shelling beans are also at market, Crescent Moon’s Cherokee Trail of Tears purple shelling beans.

It’s not too early to think about holiday gifts. The artisans at the market have wonderful choices. Willow Design had beautiful, warm and snuggly knit scarves and clever jewelry. She has some especially nice things for children. She also has fruit and vegetable theme pieces.
