Good morning market family! Cannot believe it is May already! Bring on the shorts, sweet corn and summer vegetables ;D
First things first though, Linda with Dogwood Valley Greenhouse send this note:
Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has too many choices for your Mother’s Day shopping! We have added to the market several types of lovely flowering hanging baskets and some colorful planters with violas, snapdragons, and dianthus. Please check out our new terracotta herb planters as well. We’ve added a limited number of adorable miniature carnation “gardens in a vase.” And last, we have some tomato and pepper plants in gallon containers for Mother’s vegetable garden. Don’t forget about our beautiful perennial plants for Mother’s favorite garden spot (sun or shade, we have them all); herb plants for her culinary, medicinal, or ornamental garden; and foliage hanging baskets for her porch or patio. I will even be glad to deliver your purchase of $25 or more on Saturday if you prefer not to keep it for several days.
Catherine with Flying S Farms has added SLICED bread to her loaf offerings! If you are a clutz with the bread knife, THIS is your answer! You can still purchase her loaves unsliced if you are the “tear a hunk and eat it” lover! Awesome to have this option, Thanks Catherine!
Short Mountain Cultures is working with two new vendors this week. Nature’s Cornerstone and Wise Butter are both locally owned and operated but live just a bit too far to make it to market! Enter folks who love supporting local and want to bring some of the products they know and love to our market! Each product will clearly state who the maker is and about them!
We appreciate this opportunity to widen the offerings for our market!
If you took the milk survey, THANK YOU! We will have more information very soon!
Botanical Harmony Farm will have sprouts back next week. This week they add a garlic, mullein ear oil for minor ear aches/pain associated with seasonal colds and allergies. Our organically grown garlic along with wild harvested mullein flowers bring a gentle antibiotic effect and soothing pain relief. This ear oil is also wonderful for loosening wax in the ear and perfect for use before and after ear candling. Quantities are limited until this year’s mullein harvest and shelf life can be prolonged in the refrigerator!
Check out what Quinn’s Mercantile has inside that is perfect for Mother’s Day gifts~ Fill a beautiful basket that mom will go nuts over!
See ya on the porch!
