Calling all Blackberry-Lovers, Jelly-Makers, Cobbler-Bakers, and Wine-Makers--THIS IS YOUR BEST WEEK TO PICK BLACKBERRIES ALL YEAR! There won't be another time this year when there are more ripe blackberries at once. Four of our five varieties of thornless blackberries are producing this coming week and possibly next week. After that, amounts ripening will slowly diminish as the annual blackberry season fades. Easiest and best picking is NOW! Peak blackberry season typically runs last week in May thru first two weeks of June, so we are right in the middle of that time period. Tomato season just starting, and they are highly susceptible to various demons, especially with recent monsoons, so pick tomatoes while they are abundant and lookin' good. OPEN Sunday 6/6/21 7:30am-1:00pm. (OPEN TUES. THRU SUNDAYS 7:30am-1:00pm UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Pickers must check in at market before 12:30pm to pick, weigh and pay before our 1:00pm sharp closing time.) We're open even if it's raining, but no picking during lightning. Rain boots or yard shoes recommended at this time. Lots of good stuff to pick: THREE MILES of thornless blackberries in peak production, 1,000 ft. of tomatoes on fences, kale, dinosaur kale, cabbage, Napa cabbage, squash (yellow, zucchini, spaghetti), peppers, cucumbers, beets, few radishes. Bring shears to cut zinnias, sunflowers and some vegs. Pre-picked: acorn squash (white, green, and yellow), spaghetti squash, tomatoes, and a few peaches. Peach BBQ wood & homemade preserves/jelly for sale in the market. Check HOME tab on this website for pricing, maps, etc., and ALWAYS check this "Updates" tab before coming to be sure we are open. Special welcome to area bikers for our first of two "Biker Berry Weekends." (see flyer in photos below) FYI: Binford Rd. is under construction between HWY 290 and FM 2920, so if 290/Binford exit is closed, exit Kickapoo or FM 2920.
