At Falls Park Farmers Market, expect plenty of versatility straight from the vines. Marinate your senses with the shades of Mother Nature, natural food coloring for your table, and the ripe collections that Falls Park Farmers Market has to offer.

Join us on Saturday, from 8am-1pm, at Falls Park to experience Mother Nature’s Garden at your fingertips. Local farmers have done the bending, picking, cleaning, and lifting of all your favorite produce, so you can enjoy your Saturday basking in the array of other fresh goodies that Falls Park Farmers Market has to offer.

Enjoy your summertime farmers market, and remember to wear sunscreen, folks; let’s leave the tomato hues to the harvest.

Are you making fresh salsa and want to peel your tomatoes fast? Boil them for 20-30 seconds then drop them into ice water. You’ll be able to pull the peels right off!

Your heart loves tomatoes too! Some nutritionists have even suggested updating the old adage to “A tomato a day keeps the heart doctor away.”

Clean produce is safe produce! Instead of using soap, it’s best to use a 3 to 1 water and vinegar solution or just fresh cold water to scrub your fruits and veggies!
