Do you love pomegranates? Stop by the Globe-Miami Farmers Market on this final Saturday, Sept. 24 for a chance to buy Grade-AA locally-harvested --- if you’ve only ever tasted store-bought, you won’t believe the bursting-with-flavor pomegranates harvested right here in Globe. September’s also the season for cukes, chile peppers, ‘patty pan squash,’ tomatoes, pears (also fresh-picked and local), apples and so much more! Vendors set up outside Globe City Hall under the shade of trees in Veteran’s Park at 150 N. Pine St. in Globe.
Bring the kids, and suggest they wear themselves out sliding, climbing and swinging from the brand-new playground gear while you browse tables of fresh herbs and jalapeno-cheddar bread from Coco-Tiki Bread Company (YUMMMM!!!). Hours are Saturday from 8 a.m. until 11, and here’s a pro tip; go early before Coty’s fresh-baked loaves and delicious cochinitos sell out. Do you have an overabundance of plums, grapes or veggies from your garden? Do you make jams, jellies, salsa or hand crafts? New vendors are invited to set up and sell outdoors in Globe at Saturday morning’s Farmers Market. Questions about the items you’d like to sell, or how to apply to be a vendor?
