MARKET FRESH: Part of the morning haul at Hillcrest Farmers Market.
  • MARKET FRESH: Part of the morning haul at Hillcrest Farmers Market.

It's not too late to visit the Hillcrest Farmers Market on the sidewalk in front of Pulaski Heights Baptist Church on Kavanaugh.

Good news all around.

Yellow squash is IN.

Those tomatoes are heirloom Cherokee purples.

The blackberries, from up near Clinton, are the sweetest I've eaten since .....

But the peaches .... A young girl is selling from the last stand on the east end of the row. They are said to be from Wynne. Buy some. Don't wait to get home. Bring a towel. THIS is what a peach is supposed to taste — and drip — like.

There's lots more stuff, including the blueberries I've been eating by the quart and baked goods, preserves, pickles, eggs and flowers. All locally produced by vendors happy to tell you ALL about it.
