It's the high season for the Guntersville Farmers Market, with all types of fresh, local fruits and produce now on hand. 

Today (Saturday) is shaping up to be a big day for the marker, provided the rain holds off. 

A film crew out of Birmingham is scheduled to make a stop at the market and film a segment about it. It's the "Talk of Alabama" show by ABC 33/40.

"They're going to do a live segment on local farmers markets and somehow we got picked," said Matt Bryant of the Rec Center. 

Weather permitting, there will be live music at the market. The grist mill man will also be there. But that all hinges on the weather. If it's raining, the grist mill man will be there the following Saturday, according to market manager Faye Cryar.

Produce is plentiful at the market these days and includes tomatoes, corn, squash, cucumbers, peaches, okra and much, much more. 

There are also some "value added" items. Jennifer Martin of Claysville is selling flower arrangements made of flowers she's grown herself. 

Sarah Webster of Georgia Mountain has baked goods, including homemade croissants. 

There's even a seller with pasture fed beef and pork. 

Pepper sauce and kim chi are among the canned goods available for purchase.
