Brussels sprouts are not just for Thanksgiving.  They make for a yummy fall side dish.  Shop our farm stand vendors for their beautiful selection of Brussels sprouts still on their stalks.  Now that’s fresh!  Our meat vendors have a great selection of bacon.  Kick it up a notch and try a flavored bacon to make it Farmers Market style.
