People frequently dip the squash blossoms in flour and seasoning and then cook them in olive oil.

The Shelton Farmers Market, on Canal Street downtown near the Riverwalk, will remain open through the fall. Hours are Saturdays from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. and Wednesdays from 3-5 p.m. Guy Beardsley oversees the operation as the marketmaster.
