Local farmers harvest their crops just days (sometimes day of) before the market. That means you get the freshest produce possible. Home-baked cinnamon rolls, single-serve pies, cookies, cheese straws, and yeast rolls are all made fresh.  Strawberries, peaches, squash, tomatoes and other goods are for sale. Mellow guitar music played by a local musician -- perfect for strolling through the market while your kids craft under the kids-only canopy. Friendly atmosphere. Good time for all ages. DON'T MISS THE FRESH AND LOCAL PRODUCTS SOLD AT THE P.E.E.R. TABLE (STRAWBERRY JAM, BLACKBERRY JAM, SQUASH RELISH, AND MORE!!)
