The Market of Many Colors
As I arrive at the Market on Saturday, couldn’t have to enjoy the colors of fall. Roy and Lindsey Parsley really went all out with their decorations. Along with corn shocks, gourds and pumpkins, Lindsey had an assortment of pansies she was selling for her FFA Chapter. Walking through the Market, you could see the red ripe tomatoes, deep green peppers and of course the orange sweet potatoes.
I had a chance to enjoy an apricot fried pie from Mrs. Irene Hollis, what a wonderful delight. A crispy crust with an enjoyable delicious fruity filling. As frost creeps ever closer, can’t help to take advantage of the selection of locally grown fruits and vegetables. OF course the season is winding down for sweet corn and green beans, but sure enjoying the okra, peas, turnip greens, peppers and squash. Your moth waters just thinking about the tasty treats available each week at the Cannon County Farmers Market.
