****************************************
While we have enjoyed a wonderful cool summer, there will be some hot days ahead, including this Saturday.  Before you let the hot forecast discourage your coming to the Market, consider the following:
1. You can get there early, even a bit before official opening at 8:00 a.m., and do cool shopping!
2. Even if you come later, you can easily complete your gathering of fresh vegetables and other items without breaking a sweat!
3. Your friendly vendors have already spent many hot hours preparing their products for you and depend on your patronage!
4.  If you do get hot, there are cool drinks to fix that!  Gingersnap cookies help too!

What are red, red, red, with a little yellow and some purple thrown in?  Why tomatoes of course!  This growing season has been excellent for this great vegetable!  A quick survey of the veggie vendors last Saturday revealed that they all had at least two tomato varieties with some having as many as seven kinds!  What kind you may ask?  Well, some of them are heirlooms, like Jet Star and Cherokee Purple and others are Big or Better Boys, and others still are Florida Hybrid, as well as others.  Then there are the little tomatoes, like Black Cherry, Sun Gold, large and small red Cherry, Juliette's, and several others. If you worry about buying more than you can eat consider this:  tomatoes, especially the small ones, can be frozen whole, after washing and drying, then roasted later, or used in stews, chili, and so forth.  So why not buy tomatoes now for a great fresh tomato taste on a cold winter day?

    In addition to the tomatoes, other warm season vegetables and herbs offered are: yard long green or purple beans (these are very tasty!), regular green and wax beans, cucumbers (many kinds), sweet and hot peppers (many kinds), potatoes (Irish, red, and sweet), basil, garlic chives, squash (zucchini, pan, spaghetti, and yellow), eggplant (many kinds, including a neat looking Thai variety), mature onions, okra, and Chinese spinach.  There are still plenty of peaches, watermelon, and cantaloupe too, and some cute "half pint" pumpkins!

A few cool season vegetables are still available: carrots, kale, cabbage leaves, radishes, cilantro, mustard greens.  If you wonder how these cool season vegetables are grown, you should ask the vendor.  Primarily the technique involves a well shaded area with considerable watering to keep the temperature lower.  

Other items at the market include:
--bingo at 9:15 with two chances to win a large sampling of the Market!  Surprise bingo prizes (two) coming on September 6th!
--local honey, jams, and jellies
--Adrienne's specialty breads and tasty cookies
--great food from Granny's Vittles, including coffee and sweet rolls
--join Friends of the Farmers and get a neat shirt and an excellent chance to win $50 worth of Market Money (spend it at the Market)
--many beautiful cut flowers, insect repellant, gourd art--the flowers are still looking good, especially some beautiful sunflowers
--eggs, grass fed beef (such as sirloin steak), and free range pork (great Hillbilly bacon)
--free advice from Master Gardener's (every first and third Saturday)
--various soaps, and natural skin care items
--jewelry
--hand sewn items from Martha's Task
--local pecans


The band will be Sarah Baker and Gypsy Twang.
