Produce - Produce available at the market includes blueberries, cantaloupe, cherries, corn, cucumbers, green beans, onions, peaches, peppers, tomatoes, watermelon, yellow squash, zucchini and more. We have three high tunnels to extend our season, and all of the produce in them is naturally grown (untreated seeds, no conventional chemicals are used). We strive to grow our field vegetables (cantaloupes, watermelons, squashes) in the same manner, although we do occasionally use treated seeds. We use the same all-natural fertilizer for both our high tunnel and field crops. The only crop we do use a conventional spray on is our sweet corn. We have tried growing corn organically in the past, but between the weeds and the bugs it was nearly impossible. We spray our corn on a schedule to keep bugs at bay, that way we use the least amount possible. Produce that isn't grown by us is sourced locally from other MD farms and, depending on the time of year, out-of-state farms as well.
In addition to produce, we sell goods from the following local businesses:
Lapp Family Bakery - Although Mr. and Mrs. Lapp retired from their wholesale business, they have passed along their knowledge and recipes to a new family. John and Priscilla Lapp took over for Mervin and Sue in the summer of 2018, and we now carry their baked goods. Everything is baked fresh on Thursdays and delivered to us early Friday morning. We carry a variety of fruit and cream pies, sandwich breads, sweet breads, cookies, whoopie pies, and granola.
