The Victoria Farmers Market reopens Tuesday for the fall/winter season.
The market will boast a variety of fruits and vegetables, such as okra, squash and cucumbers, Noah Thompson, the market's manager, said. Within a couple weeks, winter vegetables including broccoli and cauliflower will also join the mix.
Items such as cakes, pastries and potted plants will also be on sale.
"We may have some eggs," Thompson added. "The city council said we can sell them. Now we just need a grower to bring them out."
The market will likely run through December or January.
Home-grown, fresh produce is the main advantage the market offers, Thompson said.
"You can't get it any fresher," he said. "Some of our stuff will be a little more reasonably priced, too, than in stores."
