‘Member I’ve spoken of the farmers stand being rebuilt just outside the village limits? Well, it hasn’t been opened yet. The activity seems to have died away. All that money into that old building and nothing.
Still there is time.
I did bother to find a farmers market that is actually advertising for customers, however. It found me, really. Here, let me show you.

Be sure to enjoy the fresh locally grown vegetables in abundance at Walnut Valley Farmers’ Market.
It is mid-summer, and tomatoes and squash are in great supplies.
The roasting ears have been scrumptious. Some corn might still be available, and okra should be picking up at market.
Fruits such as peaches and blackberries are becoming available, and one will find beautiful plump eggplants along with pickling and slicing cucumbers; yellow, white and green summer squash; onions; beets and garlic.
Freshly cut herbs will be found, as well as fresh, colorful garden flower bouquets that will last a week with fresh water every other day.
Watermelon may be the next new produce to make an entry to the market tables. They need the sunny days!
Cantaloupe will follow.
Of course, I’ll drive down there (a long way, down there) about cantaloupe time and gather up some.
