End of blueberry season at the Farmer’s Market

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – The rain held off for the Terre Haute downtown farmer’s market Saturday morning.

Those scattered rain drops didn’t appear to stop people from coming out.

The market is now into its second month of the season. It opened in June and stays open until October for every Saturday morning 8 to noon.

Farmers say the crops have done well for vegetables and fruits this year but one farmer tells us it’s the last weekend for one of those particular crops.

“Oh, yeah everyone wants blueberries,” explained Ernie Blitz, Blitz Produce. “It’s easy to sell those. It’s been average…it’s been a pretty good crop. But it’s the last weekend for blueberries.”

In fact, Ernie sold his very last batch of blueberries Saturday morning.

But, he sold his first apple. So apples are now in season to replace that popular blueberry crop.
