This week at market there were 14 vendors. Those vendors were Kristi, Devin and Mason, Larry and Caryn, Vernon and Wilma, Dale, Chuck and Ginger, Dawn, Cheryl, Marie, Lois and Brenda, Frances, Jim, Shirley, Freddie and Michael, Karen, and Lori. It was a great night for a farmers market and the customer traffic showed that. Some of the items that were available were hot peppers, sweet peppers, egg plant, potatoes, beets, lima beans, sweet potatoes, winter squash, onions, pumpkins, gourds, ornamental corn, broom corn, pies, noodles, jams, jellies, popcorn, bakery of all kinds, honey, ceramics, leather goods, candles, pears, apples, watermelons, honey and honey products. I am sure I missed something so come on out to the Toledo Farmers market and check it out for your self. There are only two markets left.

Sweet potatoes are available. Sweet potatoes don't take a long time to prepare.Cutting them into 1/2 inch slices and steaming them for just 7 minutes not only brings out their great flavor but also helps to maximize their nutritional value. You can add cinnamon, nutmeg, or cloves for extra flavor and nutrition.
