Cool Days, Hot Nightshades

The temperatures may be dropping, but the hot peppers are popping!

Hot peppers are great for roasting, pickling, canning, or drying — and of course hot sauce!

If hot peppers aren’t your thing, don’t worry! We’ve also got ‘em sweet, mild, and everywhere in between.

Stop by this week for peppers, and lots of other last-chance summer produce!
