(ADV) Myra Harrison Farmers Market report: Tues., Aug. 17, 2010

QUICK SHOP Printable Shopping List of all vendors products for today, Tuesday, August 17, 2010.

By Myra Harrison

The abundance of fresh from the farm produce is really good this morning. We're into the season when it's a good time for buying for canning.

Most of the gang are here today, and we've saved a spot for Jeff Scott and Boss Blair in case they make it. Already, a nice crowd of Early Bird shoppers are here, and we're expecting more local restaurants to be here early this morning, too. We appreciate them. Bet their customers appreciate the fresh taste, too.

And we really like it when parents tell us their school kids like the taste of heathy, homecooked, homegrown vegetables better than they do fast food. That makes this all so much more worthwhile.
