The temperature shouts,"Thanksgiving weekend" but everything else still says late summer. There are still baskets of peaches--ripe peaches--blue plums and damsons at Loffredo Farms. At the Andrews' Scenic Acres stall, there are raspberries and strawberries so late spring and early summer seem to linger. Gladioli, sunflowers, and dahlias provide a gaudy backdrop.
There is bad news. Since their salesperson/daughter is now teaching school, O.K. Farms has no one to man their stall so it is gone for the season at the weekday markets--Sick Kids, Borden Street, and East Lynn. Fans of O.K.'s apples, pears.plums and berries will still be able to find them on Sunday at Liberty Village.
