This week’s shoppers will find kale, collard greens, lettuce, snap peas, new potatoes, green and red cabbage and more fresh vegetables, along with herb transplants that include sweet basil, lemon basil, purple opal basil and Italian parsley.
The market also will have hanging baskets ready to decorate your patio or deck for the summer.
