Market offering sweet corn
Sweet corn is ready to be picked, and vendor spaces are filling quickly at the Farmers' Market in Shell Knob.
The market is open from 8 to 11 a.m. each Thursday at the old Church Gallery, weather permitting.
New crops are ripening each week, and soon the market will offer tomatoes, snow peas, lettuce, beets, red, gold and purple potatoes, broccoli, yellow squash, zucchini and onions.
Fresh products from Lorenae Dairy include cheese curds, dip mixes, tea mixes, pies, brownies, breads, jellies and jams.
There is also a plentiful supply of local, raw honey and farm fresh eggs.
Craft items offered at the market include cedar chairs, benches, walking sticks, handmade dolls, old fashioned metal chairs repainted to reflect lake designs, tire bird feeders, wooden cutting boards, stoneware wind chimes and natural scented sugar scrubs for the skin.
Handmade pottery, decorative gourds, carved turtles and feathers, bird houses and feeders, jewelry, knitted and crocheted items, flip-flops for kids, stuffed teddy bears and other craft items will also be available.
The Old Church Gallery is located on Farm Road 1240, about one-half a mile north of the plaza.
For more information, call 858-2510 between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. any day except Wednesday.
