In this photo Abby Yates of Connecticutly Grown, LLC, maker of Hoardable Hot Sauce, is pickin’ peppers in the rain at Gazy Brothers Farm. Alexis Gazy said “She wanted hot peppers, so we picked off the last of the 2011 crop in the pouring rain. What a trip! Alexis, who is market master, also said that “Abby also uses produce from market vendors such as Riverbank Farm, Plasko’s Farm, Vaszauskas, as well as other CT farms. She just loves Riverbank carrots for one of her blends.” Sounds like CT Grown in a bottle!
