The tomato can accompany so many dishes. Pick your favorite, college cheese, pasta, soups, gumbo or just sliced with a little salt, the Cannon County Farmers Market is you place for locally grown vine ripen tomatoes. While the limited moisture and heat has made it difficult for our local farmers, they still have a great selection of bush and green tomatoes, assortment of peppers and okra.

For those looking for locally grown farm fresh vegetables, drop by the Cannon County Farmers Market this Saturday, July 14th for a great selection of fruits, vegetables and baked goods.
