Opening day last Thursday was a tremendous success. The crowds were big until the rains hit. Those lucky enough to get the first of the season’s tomatoes were lucky indeed, but there was plenty enough produce to go around. Visit this Thursday from 1 to 5 pm at the 4-H Barn on Wilcox Street to get your fresh green beans, potatoes, tomatoes, collard and mustard greens, strawberries, yellow squash, yard eggs, lettuce, cucumbers, corn, flowers, baked goods, local honey, and much much more.
