Throughout the season, the Mercer Island Farmers Market (MIFM) has sampling tables where customers can learn about different varieties of fruits and vegetables. By tasting these different varieties, our community members develop a deeper appreciation for the wide variety of flavors, textures, sizes, and tastes of kinds of fruits and vegetables. Through these educational efforts, a “peach” is no longer just a “peach,” now it is a Suncrest peach or a Red Haven peach or a Rosa Hale peach or a Delph peach, all with different tastes and uses.
