Market Report for July 7, 2017

We couldn't have asked for better weather for the Toledo Farmers' Market this Friday evening. With the limited space we had this Friday market night there was still plenty of vendors and plenty of items to purchase.

Kristi brought pies, twisty, Czech Bakeries, rolls, bars, cookies, breads, along with those delicious lemon strawberry cupcakes and chocolate peanut butter cupcakes that Devin bakes. Cindy had plenty of broccoli, potatoes, and kohlrabi. Caryn had the cotton candy machine going, which kept her busy. She also brought her caramel corn, favored caramel corn, snack mixes and jams and jellies.

Shirley and Michael had oodles of noodles, rolicky, kolaches, buchty, and breads. Darold had a colorful table with his golden beets, red beets, red potatoes, onions, green zucchini, kohlrabi, broccoli, cabbage, and leeks. Chuck and Ginger had bakery, popcorn, zucchini, cabbage large and small heads, leeks, kohlrabi, potatoes, cauliflower, and a handful of green beans. Dawn had jams, jellies, dried herbs, dried beans, rhubarb, red, and yellow raspberries, mulberries, houseplants, German statice, simple soak, and glass art.

Keller Berry farm had a delicious table, blueberries, red raspberries, cookies, and blueberry pies made out of their hand picked blueberries. How much fresher can you get? Janice had a large assortment of muffins, crisp, breads, individual wrapped kolaches, kohlrabi, cherry tomatoes, zucchini, and radishes. Jim had his hand made leather items, purses, coin purses, wallets, and belts just to name a few.

Next week at market your favorite vendor will be in their normal spot ready and waiting for their customers.

The Toledo Farmers' Market is a participant in the Iowa's EBT Farmers Market Project. This project's goal is to bring the farmers markets and food assistance together.

We have two vendors that are participating in this project. Gail and Bill's farm The Bunny Farm and Dawn's farm, C&T Gardens. The EBT program helps provide fresh and nutritious foods from farmers markets to families.

EBT can be used to buy fruit, vegetables, meat, eggs, baked goods, honey, cheese, herbs, jelly, and jam. Pretty much anything you can eat, except you may not use EBT for hot prepared foods, or hot drinks.
