We have our fresh baked goods vendors with cookies, breads, scones and coffee cake.
There is also a Food Demonstration by Judy Radant. Stop by and pick up your copy of her recipes!
And here’s one of our favorites for the sweet potatoes:

Come support our high school cheer team as they host a demonstration and bean bag tournament in the park with our our Flying Dutchmen custom made boards! They will also be selling water and snacks for our wonderful Market Patrons.
You can expect wonderful peaches and plums, as well as the freshest vegetables and produce in the area. Did you know that locally grown and picked produce has a higher nutrient content? It’s one of the many reason to shop locally.
