Market Report for August 8, 2019

It was a full market on this Friday night. The customers were plentiful along with the vendors. We had a couple of new vendors and a returning vendor this Friday night of the Toledo Farmers' Market. And the tomatoes have made their appearance.

Kristi brought plenty of pies, kolaches, rolls, rye bread, cookies, bars, rolicky, and twisty. Kristi also had some real good looking tomatoes showing off their bright red color.

Janice Custer was another new vendor who brought beautiful hand crafted floral arrangements. They are also on our face book page. Welcome to the Toledo Farmers' Market.

We also had those beautiful painted lady butterflies at market with us. According to ISU Entomology Professor Donald Lewis, "There have been three generations so far, and a 4th is likely before the butterflies migrate south in September." Lewis also said, "The thick population has to do with weather to our south, which blew the butterflies into the state. Along with a few other factors, they have been very successful reproducing."

I say enjoy the beautiful painted ladies before they head south. See you at market.
