Each stand puts out it's best fruit and veggies to entice the customers in. Most stands also carry things like locally made honey, vinegars, and syrups, as well as ice cream or hot dogs. They really try to extend the life of the stand by bringing in other products, because they are only open from June to October during the harvest season.
On our trip, the only new crops we found were cherries, strawberries and asparagus. It's been a very wet Spring for us, and we are just now getting the hot sunshine we are used to, this time of year. The strawberry crop has been affected, but it seems as though the cherries are doing well!
I'm not an asparagus fan - but my mom bought some of these beauties. I think I picked too many as a child...
This is definitely not corn season for us. This corn has likely come from California. I'm such a fan of corn on the cob though, that I bought two to have for lunch today!
Mom picked up some cherries for a snack on the drive home. We also stopped by the Dutch farm stand to buy a piece of the incredible shortbread the little Dutch lady makes. I never get tired of driving out to the farm stands - it's a gorgeous drive, and I always come home with something wonderfully fresh and yummy!
Wishing all the fathers out there a very happy Father's Day!
