Market Report for May 26, 2017

What a great night for the Toledo Farmers' Market. There was a large crowd with it being Memorial weekend. We appreciate all that attended.

The vendor line up this week was, Aromathea Candles, Will brought plenty of five, sixteen and ten ounce candles, along with melts and roll on glitter. The scents that caught my eye was, fruit loops, cotton candy, Macintosh apple, Citrus Balsam, Egyptian Musk, Comforts of Home, Mango, Gardenia, and Soft Leather. Be sure to stop by Aromathea's table to see what scents you like.

Kristi had plenty of her Czech bakeries along with asparagus and rhubarb. A new feature this week was cupcakes made by Devon. The lemon strawberry was so good, and to tell you how delicious they were, I ate all four of those cupcakes. The other flavor was chocolate peanut butter, which the grandkids enjoyed. I can't wait to see if there is a new flavor at the next market. Vernon and Wilma had eggs, nice brown eggs. Busy Bee Acres brought honey, honey stixs, lip balm made out of beeswax, blocks of bees wax, scrubbies, solid lotion bars, and pure bees wax candles.

It was Darold's first night back. He brought lettuce, kale, arugula, and radishes. Shirley and Michael had plenty of Czech bakeries and oodles of noodles. Chuck and Ginger had a table full. Along with her bakeries they had popcorn, rhubarb, green onions, kohlrabi, and eggs. Dawn had her assortment of jams, rhubarb, popcorn, green onions, radishes, Carrie's glass art, and house plants of many sizes. Jim had an assortment of wallets, billfolds, belts, holsters, coin purses, and many more hand made leather items.

Joe and Barb had their delicious yeast breads, pies, crisps, radishes, onions, asparagus, and a good looking clump of lettuce from the butter crunch family called savonia. Pam had a table of home made crafts items Hand painted hearts, birdhouses, clay pot angels, mopheads, dish towels, jar grippers, baby booties, and home made laundry soap. Karen had her Center Point Farm soy candles and melts. Some of the flavors Karen had were, apple cinnamon, hazelnut coffee, spiced cranberry, monkey farts, mulberry, caramel apple, love potion #8, and vanilla mint, which is my favorite. Stop by Karen's table to see what your favorite scents are.

Down on the North end was Gail and Bill from The Bunny Farm. They brought plants, plants, and plants. Some of them were iris, strawberries, peach trees, yarrow, mint, raspberries, tomatoes, hot and sweet peppers, sweet potato starts. They also had radishes, and lettuce mix. IF you love to talk plants or bunnies stop by and visit with Gail and Bill. I am sure you will walk away with something you didn't know and maybe even a plant of two.

There were plenty of items at the Toledo Farmers' Market. Can't wait to see what next month brings. Oh by the way next Friday is the next month, can you believe its June already? Time flies when you're weeding and planting.

I am sure most of the gardeners are in the same boat as I wishing, and hoping for warm, dry weather. If I don't get the tomatoes out of my kitchen and into my garden, I am going to have to start pruning the jungle. The soil is cold and what has sprouted and poking out of the ground isn't growing very fast. I sure hope this means we will have a long warm fall.

Be sure to get out to the Toledo Farmers' Market on Friday nights from 5-7 and pick up your favorite item. See you at market.
