  • Blackberries
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Peaches (white and yellow)
  • Red, new potatoes
  • Corn
  • Butter beans
  • Onions

  • Zucchini
  • Tomatoes
  • Carrots
  • Swiss chard
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Beets
  • Broccoli

  1. You know my vote is peach butter!

  2. Hoping for berries this weekend…we had some strawberries but none of the others…

  3. Peach butter, peach butter!!!! It is farmer’s market bonanza around here. Loving every minute. The tomatoes aren’t quite right yet… but they’re getting there!
