It’s been a good year for watermelons, peppers and cucumbers and a not-so-good year for cantaloupes and squash. After a poor early season, tomatoes have rallied.

West Point’s market closed about two weeks ago while the Starkville Community Market, which for the first time extended its schedule through August, will close shop Saturday. The Hitching Lot Farmers’ Market in Columbus will stay open until the end of October. The market is open Monday (4-6 p.m.), Thursdays (7-10 am.) and Saturdays (7-10 a.m.)
