Our farmers market carries seasonal fruits, vegetables, produce, and artisan products. Our select artisan products include pasta, soaps, jams, honey, spices, and more. 

This fall, we are offering a plethora of autumnal fruits and vegetables. Remember, we continue this service year-round! Stock up on all the best that fall has to offer, such as:

  • Lettuce
  • Kale
  • Cabbage
  • Pumpkin
  • Beets
  • Radishes
  • Garlic
  • Apples
  • Pears
  • Cranberries
  • Dates
  • Grapes

Delicious Meal Options With Fresh Produce

After picking up some local produce, it’s time to get cooking. Fall is the time to cozy up with a warm mug of apple cider, sit around a fire, and enjoy a hearty meal made with filling veggies.

  • Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese—Add a twist to a home-cooked classic. Throw some pureed butternut squash into your cheese mix to add richness and body to this dish. 
  • Chicken Pot Pie—stuff a delicious pot pie to the brim with local veggies like green beans, sweet corn, zucchini, and potatoes.
  • Beef Stew—With a generous helping of veggies, chunks of beef, and savory herbs, beef stew is a warming meal you can enjoy in the quickly cooling temps. 

Enjoy it all in your gorgeously decorated outdoor area provided with help from our garden center.
