Lidia Brown and her younger brother Josiah pose for their picture along with their homemade baked pepperoni pizza, white rolls, fry bread and peanut butter cookies.

The trees are changing, the days are growing shorter and people are preparing for the cold season. Summer has come to end.

Sooner than you know it, businesses will be closed for the season and the fall decorations and holiday recipes will be out.

However, even as the Anchor Point Farmers' Market comes to a close, many will continue to sell their goods outside of the Anchor Point greenhouse on Mondays from 3 to 7 p.m. Farmers who have produce that came in by the bundles late this season are determined to sell fresh eggs and vegetables from their farms located in Anchor Point.

If you are interested in learning where the farms are located please call Al Poindexter at the Anchor Point Greenhouse, 235-7288, for more information.

Our final vendor of the season is a humble girl by the name of Lidia Brown. You may know Lidia from places such as the Anchor Point Farmers' Market, as she often comes alone or accompanied by her siblings, Josiah and Deborah Brown. They are regulars here at the market.

Lidia and her family are best known for their pepperoni pizza, pizza stromboli, coffee cake and chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies. Other baked goods they have offered in the past include white bread and white rolls, fry bread and cold cola to complement the pizza.

Lidia's pizza was unique to the Monday market and sold like hot cakes. She tells me, "It was an easy decision to make pizza for the market because I have sold it in the past at other events and it has done very well."

Apart from selling baked delights at the market. Lidia volunteers for her community as a firefighter at the Anchor Point fire house, loves playing hockey in Homer and works in Bible camps over the summer.

Thank you all for a great season.
