Today, for Princeton
Farmers’ Market, we plan to bring lots of muskmelon and blueberries. We also have a good supply of blackberries and garlic. We’ll also bring strawberry jam, our wildflower honey, some sweet corn, tomatoes, potatoes, and raspberries. Some Plow Creek Bakery
goods will be for sale, too. Market opens at 3:00 on Main Street at Elm.
Our last two plantings of sweet corn did not produce decent ears, probably because of the weather. We are calling sweet corn season over.
Our white and yellow sweet corn is in. Sweet and delicious. Price is $5.50 / dozen. It is available at Princeton
and LaSalle Farmers’ markets and at our Market Barn
We will soon have good quantities that we could sell for freezing. Ten dozen or more, pre-ordered, is $4.50 / dozen.
We are now between plantings. The ears on the first planting are too old and the ears on the second planting are immature. We may have corn for Saturday’s (8/2) markets, but probably not until Tuesday (8/5).
A cool spring delayed it, but we finally have sweet corn to sell at the market barn at the farm daily, as well as our markets in Princeton
, Spring Valley
, LaSalle, and Peoria. We have the sweet, bi-color, white and yellow variety.
Fall Red Raspberry season is underway, and you can find a good supply at Valley Flowers
in Spring Valley
Thursday from 8AM to 2PM. Sweet Corn, Tomatoes, Muskmelon, Bread, Cookies and Watermelon (5 varieties) will also be on display.
Back at the farm, Raspberry U-Pick will be open Thursday from 8AM to 8PM.
