This Week at the Market: Shlagel Farms

This weekend, Shlagel Farms brings a summer's bounty to Cheverly. The list is a veritable catalogue of the tastes you associate with summer: peaches, blueberries, blackberries, green beans, green peppers, hot peppers, eggplant, kale,collard greens, cabbage, squash, zucchini, onions, corn...maybe even some cantelopes and watermelons! Eileen and Russ still have to check the ripeness of the melons -- they won't sell them until they're just perfect. Adding to the bounty: farm-fresh eggs and honey sticks!

Make sure to visit KidMarket at 10:00 because Eileen will be giving a short bee talk! As a special great, she'll have honey sticks for any child over the age of two. We hear Eileen may even be persuaded to do a special bee dance...we'll have to use our best manners to ask!
