Farmer's Market Saturday Part 2

Summer is definitely in full swing, and we're starting to see a wider range of fruits and vegetables at the market. The yellow beans, or wax beans, were in abundance, along with mounds and mounds of green beans.

Samascott Orchards had those great peaches I wrote about in the previous post, along with this great organic broccoli, and the fantastic berries below. Between all the red, yellow, and deep ruby cherries, as well as the blackberies, raspberries and blueberries, you could have one heck of a fruit salad!

And the corn has made it's first appearance of the year at the Inwood Market! you'll be seeing more of this in the markets around the country.

next time you go to a farmers market in your area ask the people growing corn if their crop is producing as good as it should. i live in north west arkansas and the garden corn is not doing well here. i am interested in how corn is growing else where.i am wondering if the genitic enginered corn is have an effect on our corn crop.

That's an interesting topic. I will indeed ask them how things are going. Byt he looks of it, the corn seems to be doing very well. It's firm, large, and hearty, and I know thi sparticular farm grows organically. However, we also don't have largescale corn farms in the Northeast, so we may not have any of the genetically modified corn near us.
