Gilmer Farmer's Market Revisited

I have placed on our blog several postings of the newly established Farmer's Market in Glenville. Click on and scroll down to September 22nd and September 23rd to review previous postings.

This Saturday was active with Larry Helk cooking his famous Italian sausage sandwiches with grilled peppers and onions.

Judy and I had Larry's sandwiches for lunch and they were yummy. Larry is so enthusiastic about his gourmet offerings.

Larry and his wife,Randi , live at Auburn and call their farm - Last Resort. They offer a variety of products. We purchased 5 jars of their local honey. You will note that they also make their own maple syrup plus an array of specialized syrups.

The tents are gone and the vendors are now using the new shelters. Judy and Mary Lee McPherson pose under one of the new shelters. Plans are already in the process for expanding the shelters for next season.

The Cole family still had a wide selection of produce including tomatoes, watermelons, corn, apples, pumpkins, beans, and other vegetables.

Our friend Mary Lee always welcomes visitors to the market and thanks the folks for stopping by. She is a jewel and she is so proud of this endeavor. The sad thing is that there is only one more Saturday that the market will be open. The produce season has ended.

I leave you with Judy coming to the car with her bag of goodies. We should all be proud of the Farmer's Market.
