We don’t usually put farmers markets in the weekend events because they’re weekly and there are so many. But we’re throwing one in to remind you now more than ever is the time to support our local farmers. Plus, it’s a great time of year to do so with what’s producing right now: expect cauliflower, onions, blackberries, zucchini, greens, chard and potatoes. And we’re close enough to stone fruit season that we may see peaches. Good Local Markets, which does this one, also has a Sunday morning market in Lakewood.

What: White Rock Farmers Market

When: 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday

Where: 9150 Garland Road (White Rock)

Katherine Clapner is baking both sweet and savory goods this weekend. Pans of six are available for kolaches (mixed fruit in each pan) and kolabasnek. We highly recommend both, but especially the latter, which will have Slow Bone’s brisket and creamed greens. Pre-orders are required for pickup. Order by emailing Clapner by end of day Friday.

What: Kolache and Klobasnek

When: 10 a.m. to noon Saturday

Where: Dude, Sweet Mother Ship, 1340 Inwood Road

Cost: $18 for one pan, $35 for two
