There also are some tomatoes and peppers and a few cantaloupes, but the crops are behind schedule due to this year's unusual spring weather.There also are plenty of peaches that are bigger than usual, a few sweet cherries and some tart cherries packed in sugar in 30-pound containers.

People heading to Utah County will find a variety of produce for sale. Among other things, vendors will be selling peppers, cucumbers, squash, beans, some early peaches and a few tomatoes. Sweet corn also is starting to appear on the market, according to Brent Gledhill of the Utah County Extension Office.
