Summer 2014 Farmers Market Session Opens This Saturday

The Great Falls Farmers Market summer season begins this Saturday as the summer vendors join those who have served our community all winter. Penn Farm and Diaz Berries & Veggies will be joining Tuscarora Organic Growers Coop and Tyson Farms to bring a wide array of vegetables and fruits. Tyson Farm is a good addition to our mix, as they have abundant fruit orchards, which will broaden our selection of fruit all summer.

Over the winter, Postmodern Foods brought gorgeous raw recipes to our community in the form of juices, smoothies, savory entrees and sweet deserts, and enjoys a solid following. Last week, we welcomed Wild Flour Underground, a gluten-free, sometimes vegan, baker, to resounding applause. Joining the line up is Plain & Simple, who has been hibernating all winter. Jo’s dedicated following will be glad to see her savory and sweet muffins once again. Maxillicious Baking, who joined a few weeks ago, offers a biscotti that is packed with nuts and chocolate, lemon or mocha. Little Corners and Baguette Republic have been with us all winter and can’t wait to provide delicious treats for all the summer gatherings and festivities.

High View Farm, another year round vendor delights with amazing eggs, sausage, pork, bacon and the occasional lamb and beef. Lynnhaven River Brand tried to make it all winter, but the climate has been prohibitive. They plan to come all spring and into the summer with oysters, clams and possibly other fish.

Tasteful Landscapes can assist you with herb gardening, and State Gardens is selling the herb plants to fill up the garden structure.

Come see vendors you have missed all winter, and welcome some new ones. New vendors will be introduced over the coming weeks. The Great Falls Farmers Market welcomes small local businesses that grow, cultivate, make or produce what they plan to sell. Offerings include food and artisan crafts.
