Say Hello

Say Hello to Long Beans! Available from many vendors throughout The Market, long beans are red or green and can be 12-18 inches long. Don’t cook these like green beans — they actually are better when cooked in oil — flash-fried or stir-fried. When cooked in water, they tend to get waterlogged. You can also eat them raw in salads or pickle them. Long beans are good for you too — they are a good source of vitamin A and C.

The next time you’re at the Market grab a bunch to experiment with and Say Hello to all our vendors, Saturdays from 7 a.m. – Noon!

From May to October, experience local artists, live music and entertainment at the Downtown Farmers’ Market featuring nearly 300 family farmers, bakers, artists and crafters from around the state. It’s easy to visit with plentiful and affordable street and ramp parking options.
