So, I promise this is going to be my last apple specific market post... I just can't help but share all the fabulous things that you can do with apples!

The market can provide you with three of the most important ingredients in the following recipe: apples, eggs, and flour
Apples: Tony Fetters Fruit Farm can provide you with a wide range of apple selections, and if you are nice he will even let you sample them to find the perfect apple for your usage
Eggs: There is always at least one vendor selling eggs, with the possibility of three different vendors each week: Sunnyside Farm, Liberty Delights, and Ferguson Family Farm
Flour: Sunnyside Farm is generously providing our market customers with delicious Yeehaw Farm flour. This is one of a kind wheat flour, that has been grown on the family farm for more then 60 years without the aid of chemicals, not even approved for organic application types, at anytime! This whole wheat flour will give you a whole new perspective on flour.
