Hello everyone!! The last Saturday of July is coming up. Where has this month gone. I hope that everyone has been enjoying their summer. The vendors at the Duluth Farmer’s Market are having a great year. Heat and rain when we need it. The market is full of vendors and every booth is full.
Just when we thought no more roads in Duluth could possible close, 14th Ave E. coming up from London Rd is closed. So I’m hoping all of you great customers will brave the construction and shop with us anyway.
The new item this week is yellow beans at Barb’s booth. Yummy. I love fresh beans. Speaking of beans, there will also be a lot of green beans.
We will have a booth full of raspberries on Saturday. The heavy rain on Tuesday did not affect their productivity.
If you are looking for pickling cukes, they are starting to come in. I’m pretty sure this will be a good year for them, too.
What else is new this week? Broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, zucchini, potatoes, beets, lettuce, sun flowers, glads, tomatoes, did I mention zucchini? This is the peak of the season.

August 7th, we will be celebrating National Farmer’s Market week. You can take the “I buy local challenge” by signing up at the market. We will have a secret vendor going into the parking lot three times during the day and looking for the bumper sticker of window cling. Three lucky people will win market bags filled with goodies.
Thanks. See you at the market.
