We thought we might point out that melons have high amounts of beta-carotene and vitamin C, making them excellent fruits for preventing many degenerative diseases... but perhaps all we need to say is "They taste fabulous!" Nothing says "Summer" like farm fresh melons, and you'll find plenty of them from several of our vendors tomorrow. In fact, all summer produce is abundant: tomatoes, squash, watermelons, beans, onions, potatoes and okra are just a few of the things you can expect to find this week.
