baskets, and lots of herbs to choose from! All ready for your weekend warrior gardening projects! Check with the Dulaney’s this
morning for their special pricing for Memorial Day Weekend.
Tomorrow Saturday’s weather may be iffy early on, but we look to have a full house on the market with fresh local honey, delicious fresh picked strawberries, green onions, Spring lettuce, kale, rhubarb, all kinds of flowers and
vegetable plants, farm fresh eggs, and gourmet spice mixes! Highland Farms and the Sparks Family Farm will be on the market with hormone free grass finished beef . Freshly baked breads, out of this world cinnamon rolls, homemade cakes, muffins, pies, cookies, and homemade jams and jellies round out the list of wonderful things to choose from this weekend! Be sure to stop by the booths of Yellow Mountain Crafters and David Smith to check out their designer soaps and other notions.
