The Crozet Farmers Market opened for another season May 2 and will run from 8 a.m. until noon on Saturday mornings in the parking lot of Crozet United Methodist Church in downtown Crozet until October.

Maple sugar farmer Bruce Guss of Browns Cove is back with maple syrup from his trees as well as honey he harvests.

Guss has 250 trees now in production. “I decided to experiment and one thing led to another. There’s a lot of these trees around here,” he said. Each tree produces about a pint of syrup after its sap is reduced through evaporation. He sells 12 ounce bottles of it for $10 under the name Still Water Farm Maple Syrup. “It’s very reasonable,” Guss said.

Grilled chicken is also being offered at the market this year.
