A nice day is predicted.

The forecast for tomorrow is supposed to be about ten degrees cooler
with lower humidity. Our growers will have okra, tomatoes, squash,
cucumbers, corn, potatoes and more. There will be golden delicious,
Rome, and Granny Smith apples and Asian pears along with water melons.
Due to the drought, there will not be any peaches or cantaloupes. Our
vendors will be selling honey, fried pies, ground beef, and delicious
regular and gluten free breads and cookies. Our great Vietnam Veterans
of America will be manning a booth to assist veterans of all ages
concerning the VA; these people have a great knowledge and have a
assisted numerous people. In previous entries, I mentioned that our
church, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church’s, North Jefferson Food Pantry,
has had many people in need of food and the pantry is in need of
donated items to help restock the shelves. The needed items are listed
in earlier entries and can be dropped off at the market. Please
remember to let our sponsors know you’ve seen TriGreen Equipment,
Cantrell State Farm Insurance, and America’s First Federal Credit

See you tomorrow.

Only three weeks left.

We’ll have Asian pears, Red Delicious apples, Golden Delicious apples,
and Summer Fuji apples. Due to the drought, there will no longer be
peaches for sale. We have a new baked good group, the Ability Baking
Company that employees individuals with intellectual and development
disabilities. They train and find employment for these individuals.
Last week, they had a variety of delicious gluten free cookies and
breads. As an individual that has had an intolerance of gluten for
well over thirty years, I’ve seen a great improvement in the taste of
gluten free baked goods. These baked goods are some of the best I’ve
ever had the pleasure to eat. The cost of the cookies are $1.00 each
and the banana nut bread and blueberry bread is $2.50. Please come out
and support this group. We’ll have our fried pie vendor as well as a
variety of vegetables and other fruit. For this week only, our ground
