Waverly Market report
Alan Morstein of Regi's sends this report from the Waverly Farmers' Market. He also tells me he's soon heading for the Jersey Shore, so he won't be able to check out the market next Saturday. Any volunteers out there? Here's Alan. LV
The black-eye peas are at Waverly this morning. Not the group that will be in town in two weeks; we're talking the original black-eyed peas from the "Bean Man." Guaranteed to be a line in front of his stall today.
In addition, some beautiful heirloom tomatoes of all varieties, including heirloom Romas that the vendor has nicknamed Tony Romas. The first red peppers of the season made their debut.
Plenty of beautiful ripe vegetables and produce available on this beautiful Saturday morning.
For lima bean aficionados, you can expect them in the next few weeks.
