The late-summer harvest is turning to fall as vendors at Belmont's Farmer Market begin to bring in early fall produce. Gone are the peaches, replaced by apples and pumpkins as root veggies make the presence known.
Joining the regular vendors are occasional merchants Coastal Vineyards, Coutts Specialty Foods and Sara Ran Away with the Spoon.
