Pittsboro, NC - I was at the Pittsboro Farmers' Market last week, it was breezy but cool to look at all that was available. Starting on one side of the covered shed, here is what I saw:

Amy of Bonlee had a large variety of bedding plants, including wonderful impatiens. Also canned jam and jelly.

The next vendor had fresh cucumbers, tomatoes and fantastic just plucked asparagus. Green Dreams Farm had some of those great white Japanese turnips, plus other fresh grown greens. The vendor with wines was there. Frogpond Nursery from Sanford had a large variety of Hostas.

Charlean Beef was there with choice meats. Jim Massey, the Daylily King was there with goodies. Screech Owl Farms had a selection of fresh lettuce. Sunny Slope Greenhouse had those wonderful plump red tomatoes.

Celebrity Dairy has those wonderful cheeses made from goat milk. Joan Thompson had jellies, jams, plus home made sourdough bread and big big cookies.

Zambellannata had native trilliums, Columbine, sweet Betsy (Carolina allspice) grape holly, blue phlox, wild strawberry plants, Weeping blue atlas cedar, rare Japanese maple. Vendor from Southern Pines had a large assortment of plants, which included patio tomatoes, herbs, and veggie plants.

And guess what? It all happens all over again this Thursday at the Chatham County Fairgrounds located behind Food Lion. Hours are from 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm.
