In the produce and plant department, we expect to continue to see seedlings, hanging baskets and planters, lettuces, microgreens, mushrooms, green onions, asparagus, and rhubarb.

Our artisan vendors are bringing, breads and sweet & savory baked goods to market along with jams, salsas, tortilla chips, maple syrup, and hot sauce. Dairy selections include cheese, non-homogenized, pasteurized milk, roll butter, packaged ice cream, and drinkable yogurt. Market protein includes grass-fed beef, pork, chicken, lamb, hot dogs, summer sausage, and fresh eggs.
