Capitol Hosts Farmers Market

Sweet corn and heirloom tomatoes were hot commodities Thursday at the farmers market at the State Capitol.

That's because they're just now arriving. Like many plants, they're behind schedule due to the long winter.

Farmers tell us, although some items are late, they're not expecting low yields in a lot of crops.

"We have some fruits that are a little bit more tender, especially young trees or old trees did not fare well with the cold temps," said Emily Beetel of the Mich. Farmers Market Assoc. "The peach crop I think is what suffered the most."

There will be two more markets at the Capitol, one is Aug. 28 and the other is Sept. 25. Both run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
