Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, August 12 – 9am-noon

We’re nearing the end of National Farmers’ Market Week. B&G Produce has held online contests each day this week. If you missed out on these so far, be sure to check out their Facebook page in the morning for the last contest and chance to win some of their products.

Matt and I were able to get a bunch of baby lettuce transplanted this week as well as a few cauliflower. Yes, we’re still planting, but we’re nearing the end. A couple more weeks and we’ll have everything in for the season. The days will continue to get shorter and the plants will mature at a slower rate. But, we have a ton of produce coming at you this fall…so don’t you worry!

Barb is back from Bab’s Bites ‘n Bones and she’s bringing her famous chocolate ice cream topping! Be sure to arrive early to ensure you get a jar of this silky deliciousness.

B&G Produce is introducing celery and baby fennel this week! We also have our amazing White Chocolate Lime biscuits and possibly the best batch of Roasted Garlic Chipotle Hummus.

As a market, we accept credit cards and EBT. Shop all the vendors and pay once before you leave! Stop at the Market Manager booth to start the process and have fun shopping.
