Pluots and donut peaches seem somewhat exotic to the average fruit lover. But at Tiny’s Organic, an East Wenatchee-based farm operation, the two premium fruits are some of the company’s biggest sellers ... well, if you don’t count apples. Tiny’s sells fruit and fruit products at the Wenatchee Valley Farmers Market and about a dozen farmers markets in the Seattle area. The company also runs a popular CSA (community supported agriculture) program in the Wenatchee Valley and Seattle.
For the last three years, members of Rio de Vida, Wenatchee’s Spanish Foursquare Church, has grown organic fruit and vegetables at the site, including tomatoes, chilies, peppers, tomatillos, cherries, blueberries, and corn. They sell the products at the site and also give much of the crop to the area needy. Balbina Macias washes tomatoes after they are picked at a garden at the corner of Grant Road and S. Nile Ave., in East Wenatchee.
Two letters of the Stan’s Merry Mart sign in Wenatchee flank the supermoon that lit up the Wenatchee Valley Sunday night.
