THE NEXT WEEKLY MARKET IS SATURDAY, AUGUST 27th, 9:30-12:30
The next market is on Sat. August 27th (9:30-1230)
Hot and busy at the market yesterday, with lots of vendors showcasing everything from - yup, sorry! - apples to zucchinis. In fact, we're pretty sure we could amost complete an aphabet of the great goods there were to choose from (with "C" winning: corn, canteloupe, cauliflower, cheese, carrots, cukes, chard, cakes...)
Don't forget that the market runs for 7 more weeks, and there's lots of great produce just now ready to harvest, so there are plenty of reasons to head out for the best of everything the peninsula has to offer. We're pleased to welcome CHARLIE BURTON back to entertain us on the 27th, and our featured artist will be KEITH LEVANG.
(Clicking on "read more" will take you straight to the list of vendors and what they're bringing this week.)
The weekly summer markets will run until October 8th (Thanksgiving).
