This week, the farmers market at San Antonio Botanical Gardens only had two vendors plus the plant sales.  Celia Rios of Peralta Farms said that there are usually five sellers and that this week was an anomaly.  Even though there was a limited number of booths, her farm offered a great selection including potatoes (Idaho and red), squash (zucchini and yellow), okra, jalapeños, onions (1015 and white), pickling cucumbers, beans (green, purple hull, and black-eyed peas), and melon (watermelon and cantaloupe).  Anthony Micheli of Hillside Farms in Stonewall brought tomatoes, green beans, squash, and Gala peaches.  He said that he anticipates that his freestone varieties will be ready in 3 weeks.

Leon Springs Farmers Market has posted on Facebook some of the produce items available today:  tomatoes, carrots, zucchini, cucumbers, squash, okra, potatoes, onions, cantaloupe, watermelon, and pecans.  They are also offering fresh seafood, grass-fed beef, honey, eggs, and goat cheese.  For the garden, there will be plants and herbs.  The market features live music.
