What's in season?

We can't answer that for you, unfortunately, due to the subtle differences in nature each year. All products sold at the market are seasonal, so only offered when ready to be harvested. When the fields are empty, the produce will be no longer available. Your best bet is to ask a vendor when they think they'll have a certain item, and they can give you an idea of when they think it'll be available. They can also let you know how many more weeks they'll have a type of item.

Can I bring my pet?
We're sorry, but we ask that you respect our "no pets allowed" policy by leaving pets at home.
