We’ll have some NEW ITEMS ON OUR STAND at the Farmers Market starting Saturday, 8/15/15! Our grape crop looks really good this year, and the WORDEN GRAPES – a flavorful early blue grape – are now available. They will soon be followed by our Fredonia grapes, our other early Concord type. We will also have our first big picking of KALE, in a new variety we are planting that is remarkably tender and tasty for harvest at this time of year!

DELECTABLE SWEET CORN will still be available now through Saturday 8/22/15.

Our TOMATO patch is producing some real winners this year! Our CELEBRITY SLICING TOMATOES have won blue ribbons at the Tomato Fest for two years in a row, as the best in the Standard Slicer category. We also have SAN MARZANO plum tomatoes, an heirloom variety “considered by many chefs to be the best of its kind in the world” (Wikipedia). It has thicker flesh, fewer seeds and more flavor than the popular “Roma”, making it unsurpassed for paste and cooking. And we also have “Big Rainbow”, another heirloom variety with flesh that is yellow mixed with red.

Look for all this tomorrow, Saturday 8/15/15, and on following Tuesdays and Saturdays, 8 AM to 1 PM, at our Hickory Hill Farm stand at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market.

Just a reminder that we will have a good supply of sweet corn and tomatoes at our Hickory Hill Farm stand at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market tomorrow, Saturday, August 8. The sweet corn variety is “Delectable,” a sweet bi-color corn, raised without spray, bulk prices while supplies are good. We also have an abundant supply of Celebrity red slicing tomatoes, a variety that is both solid and tasty, and which won first place for us in the 2014 Tomato Fest! We also have “Roma” type tomatoes and yellow tomatoes.

To help compensate for a shortage of nearby parking, Farmers Market customers now have a “loading zone” so that they can pick up their purchases rather than carry heavy packages long distances to their car.

Look for our Hickory Hill Farm stand at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market every Tuesday and Saturday from 8 AM to 1 PM. We expect to have corn and tomatoes for the rest of August, with grapes starting in about two weeks!

We will have PICKED BLUEBERRIES AVAILABLE (by the pint or by the case) at our stand at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market on Saturday, 7/11/15, but that will probably be our last day with blueberries at the Market this season. Get your blueberries while you can! SWEET CORN & TOMATOES are next and COMING SOON!

For those who still want to buy PICKED BLUEBERRIES BY THE CASE (12 pints/case), we will still have some available for pickup AT THE FARM over the next couple or several weeks until we are totally out of blueberries. Place your orders in advance by email to blueberries.smwj@gmail.com.

We will have an abundant supply of high quality, large blueberries at Market on Saturday, 6/27/15, and we expect the same again on Tuesday, 6/30/15. Price is $5.50/pint — buy four pints or more at $5/pint, with further discounts for multiple cases (12 pints) while supplies are good. STOCK UP NOW WHILE SUPPLIES ARE GOOD.

We know PARKING at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market can be hard to find and it may be raining on Saturday. So that you will not have to carry cases a long distance, you may make your purchase at our stand and then drive to the Market side entrance for us to carry to your car while you wait.

If you are interested in PYO (PICK-YOUR-OWN) BLUEBERRIES, send us an email at blueberries.smwj@gmail.com.

Look for our Hickory Hill Farm stand at the center of the Harrisonburg Farmers Market every Tuesday and Saturday morning. The Market is open from 8 AM until 1 PM. Thank you for your business.
