At the Market This Week: Shlagel Farm

Of course Shlagel Farms will be on hand this Saturday at Cheverly Community Market! They'll have tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, squash and zucchini, cucumbers, collard greens, kale, cider, onions, eggs, beets, potatoes, canteloupes, watermelons, green beans, lima beans, and, probably, their final harvest of peaches.  

Eileen Shlagel, a beloved vendor at the Market, sends this message:

Everything is weather dependent. Although we sustained some loss of crops due to just too much water, we have alot of wonderful, nutritious foods planted for fall harvest. In the weeks to come, you can look forward to spinach, swiss chard, cabbage, three kinds of cauliflower, A LOT of broccoli, and -- back by popular demand -- we will be harvesting another crop of greenhouse lettuce. So keep coming to the market and you'll find new things each time!  

I know that the other vendors will join us in saying how much we appreciate the people of Cheverly for their continued support of the market!

We are so thankful to the Shlagels and all our vendors for their commitments to Cheverly Community Market. They are truly part of our community, and the Market depends on our customers, our volunteers and our vendors for its continued success. Please make sure to stop by and help us thank the vendors for bringing their amazing produce, meat, and other products to Cheverly!
