Happy Easter and Passover to All


Welcome to another week of locally grown and made products. Even though Spring has officially arrived the temperatures last week sure did not reflect it. Maybe this week will be better.

I also want to share with you a video that one of our customers, Vinny Black, created for a school project. He did an excellent job. Click here to watch it.

The Market is Back Open Today - Daylight Savings Time Started


Did everyone remember to set their clocks forward last night? I did not and had to hustle to get the Market opened on time this morning.

I have a couple of notes from growers this week.

Flying S Farms has added a chickpea and Swiss chard frozen soup. Catherine has also also modified all of her friendship bread recipes. Instead of canola oil, they are now made with butter.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse wants you to know that this will be the last week for daffodil bouquets. The cold nights have prolonged their blooms. Linda has also added a couple new hanging baskets to her list of products. Keep these inside until the end of April.

Farmer Brown’s Salad of the week is curried cashew. Two sizes are available.

Thank you for your orders last week.
