More Produce at Farmer's Market

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

After a few weeks of the Farmer's Market, new products have popped up alongside the produce that has been sold since the first market.

Saturday, organizers say they offered a better variety of corn, melons, and a variety of peppers.
And standard vegetables like cucumbers...zucchini...and potatoes are still offered.
Owners say the market has been unusually busy this year.

"This year for market has been really good," said Julie Gayvert, Garden Ave. Greenhouse retail manager. "It's been a busy crowd. It started off from the first one really busy so it has been a good year and it seems to be growing with the people who are coming down shopping and looking for those veggies and stuff like that."

In the coming weeks, they say they'll get a lot more corn and pumpkins as the summer comes to an end. One fruit that has been missing from the market were tomatoes. Growers attribute that to the rainy spring and changing weather.
