Do you know . . . What a stone fruit is?
A stone fruit, or drupe, is a type of fruit that contains one large “stone” or “pit.” The stone itself isn’t the seed, though it’s commonly misidentified as one. The actual seed is found inside the stone. The thin-skinned, fleshy fruits are often sweet in flavor. Common stone fruits are peaches, nectarines, cherries, plums, and apricots. Believe it or not, Blackberries are considered Stone Fruit! Learn more, check out "What is Stone Fruit" from MyRecipes.com!

We are on the 45-day grace period. Therefore, we request that everyone entering the market show respect for our community. Our patrons, vendors and farmers' market team appreciate it.
We encourage social distancing, and hand washing/sanitation while on-site at the market. Our vendors who are serving samples and prepared food will still wear masks to protect the public; however, we leave the choice to you to mask up.
