Summer is in full swing with so much to choose from at the Saline Farmers Markets:
Saturdays, 8am-noon Downtown on S. Ann Arbor St. and Tuesdays, 3pm-7pm at the Saline District Library.
Corn and tomatoes are in as well as peaches and blueberries...wow, is it almost time to can peaches and freeze corn and blueberries? How about canning pickles? Jams and jellies sure are yummy and easy to can and freeze. There's so many veggies showing up on the vendors' tables...too many to list. Come see for yourself and buy your favorites.
Baked Goods are a popular destination for our customers, especially yummy bread, muffins, cookies, sweet rolls, pepperoni rolls and the very popular hand made pies. Granola is also a favorite of many customers.
Linda Conrad of Mama Mofoods brings her delicious hummus in a variety of flavors every other week to the Saturday Market. Come by for a sample taste.
Also popular items are eggs, meat, coffee, honey and maple syrup - yum!
Hand-crafted items including wooden bowls and pens, jewelry, baskets, soaps and lip balms are also available. In fact a satisfied customer wrote the following in an email to our vendor Jean and Bethany Slater of Celtic Dairy who make soaps and lip balms: "I bought my first bar of Lavender goat milk soap at the Saline Farmers Market on Tuesday. I have never used such fantastic soap before and I've used a lot of soap in my 50+ years. It makes lots of beautifully scented bubbles but rinses away without any residue. My old skin is baby soft. I will be buying more as soon as possible." Celtic Dairy is at the Saturday and Tuesday Farmers Markets.
There are still plenty of beautiful plants and flowers.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday and/or Tuesday.
