What’s Fresh at Mt Pleasant-June 4th
In Season Now
The cold, damp spring has resulted in a slow start to the season for growers across the board; many are reporting they’re a month behind planting, crops are struggling in the wet soil, and the lack of sunshine has been slowing down production. Despite these challenges you’ll find an abundance of fresh produce and new vendors!
Produce: basil, beets,chard, cherry tomatoes, eggplant, greenhouse cucumbers, greenhouse peppers, kale, mini peppers, parsley radishes, rhubarb, salad mix, spinach, heirloom tomatoes
