In Charlottesville Virginia we have a great and fun resource that has been around for 30+ years and it returns this week.
The Charlottesville City market (Farmers Market PLUS) starts this Saturday, April 6,2019.
The Facebook page keeps us updated with the schedule as well as fun activities during the season.
There is nothing like an onion fresh from the ground the day or so before. The early offering include bets and greens and cabbages, along with young turnips and asparagus.
The season proceeds and summer crops arrive with tomatoes,peppers , cucumbers and fruits.
An intermediate fruit offering will be the strawberries. the season is vigorous if short lived.
The City Market also features prepared foods and beautiful crafts in a wide variety of media.
Asparagus and strawberries from last year.
Now that the season is approaching….what will be the first purchase this year?
