This week at the Farmer's Market
If you like peas, you are in luck this week. The Nacogdoches Farmers’ Market will feature just about every variety of pea you can think of—purple hull, brown chowder, black-eyed, lady cream, and zipper cream—both shelled and unshelled. But, of course, you won’t want to stop with peas alone. Here are some of the many other products you will find at the Farmers’ Market this Saturday:
Produce: tomatoes, okra, bell peppers, carrots, cabbage, squash, cucumbers, new potatoes, pinto beans (unshelled, shelled & dry), watermelons, figs (several varieties), peaches, jalapenos, fresh and dried herbs
Canned goods: jams, jellies, and preserves in many flavors (peach, blackberry, strawberry, blueberry, fig, or grape), local raw honey, pickled okra, bread-and-butter pickles, chow-chow, herb-infused vinegars
Free range eggs: At least two vendors plan to have eggs. Come early for these—they usually sell out before 9am.
Fresh-baked items: quickbreads, muffins, cookies, many varieties of homemade bread (whole wheat, black sesame seed, poppy seed, multigrain, rye, sourdough), bagels, rolls, cinnamon rolls, pecan and sweet potato pies, tarts, calzones, quiche, empanada hand-pies (sweet and savory), and pralines.
Plants: ornamental trees (dogwood, redbud, flowering almond), landscape and potted plants for indoors and out.
Cut flowers: zinnias, lisianthus, celosia, unique lime-green hydrangeas and more
Handcrafted items: jewelry, crocheted afghans and other items, custom-made handbags and aprons, handmade candles, perfumes, soaps, and shampoos.
Enjoy Jon Hall’s old-time country and folk music while you shop.
