Amish Paste Tomatoes, Keith's Farm
All of our favorite tomatoes are still at the market, including these Amish Pastes from Keith's--the best for making sauce, if you believe their sign (I do).
Hot Peppers, Eckerton Hill Farm
Their tomatoes are still in full swing, but Eckerton Hill Farm's selection of hot peppers--from larger nardellos and banana peppers to teeny tiny little things that will burn your face off--is now available for heat lovers around the city. They've got beautiful bell peppers, too.

Egglpant, Maxwell's Farm
Maxwell's Farm also had these slender Asian style eggplant.
Cucumbers, Max Creek Hatchery
In addition to their fresh and smoked trout, Max Creek had these monstrous cucumbers, of the summer dance variety--they're sweet and mild, with a thick skin that you'll want to peel.
Sweet Potato Leaves, Bodhitree Farm
Bodhitree has a new green for you to add to your list of favorites: sweet potato leaves, which are loaded with vitamin A and beta-carotene.
Yellow Pickling Cucumbers, Paffenfroth Gardens
These little round cukes are great for pickling, but don't let their name fool you: they're great anywhere you'd use a regular cucumber, including salads and sandwiches.
Donut Peaches, Red Jacket Orchards
Red Jacket had more colors of donut peach than I knew existed: white, yellow, golden and green. Take your pick--it's pretty hard to go wrong at $3.50/box.
Asian Pears, Oak Grove Plantation
Oak Grove had some of the first Asian pears of the season.
Spaghetti Squash, Race Farm
Race Farm was selling fresh spaghetti squash, another early fall arrival.
