The Shenandoah Valley Produce Auction provides a place for local farmers and gardeners to wholesale produce in bulk. Three times a week in the summer and twice a week in the spring and fall baskets, crates and pallets of vegetables, fruits, and other local goods grown within a 100 mile range hit the auction floor in Dayton where they are bought by local businesses and even out-of-state buyers. These pie pumpkins are among other gourds outside the Friendly City Food Co-op that came from the auction and bring the feel of autumn to customers entering the grocery store.
