We cannot control how much people pick or how many come to pick. Coming early in the day and in the week will have more produce. Not as much is available by Sunday, plan accordingly. The kitchen and market will be open for food, desserts, and drinks. We have snacks and items from local farmers – meat, cheese, preserves, and more!
Please take appropriate precautions for your family regarding sunscreen, hats, clothing, and shoes. We have shade in the market but not in our picnic area. We have plenty of water and drinks to help keep you hydrated.
