A Great Thursday!

After all this Thursday rain, it was awesome to have warm, sunny weather at the Ballston Farmers Market. Is was such a great day, in fact, many of our farmers sold out! Perhaps it's a good idea to arrive early next time.

Remember, our hours are from 3:00-7:00 every Thursday afternoon. And fruit season has finally arrived!

Check out some mouth-watering shots from yesterday's Market:

See you next Thursday!

B. Hall, Baker

Due to circumstances beyond their control, B. Hall Baker lost their commercial kitchen very suddenly, so this Thursday, August 19th, will be their last market for a little while. They found a great, new kitchen and are hoping to be back as soon as possible.

Until then, please visit their website for the same delicious whoppie pies you've been enjoying at the Market

Calm Before the Storm!

Before the thunderstorm hit on Thursday, (and boy, did it hit hard!) the farmers were able to set up shop for a couple hours at least. Come visit us next Thursday from 3-7 for all of your fresh-off-the-farm goodies!

See you next week!
