THANKSGIVING week (ONLY) we will have delivery and pickup on TUESDAY, November 22, 2016. Same place and time… just switching to Tuesday.
Lovely, strange-weather days! I will take this and enjoy beautiful nights with friends and family. We have been using our local produce in a variety of quick soups so we can stay on-the-go. If you are short of time,
Chef Jenny with Seeds of Success offers her Dill-icious potato soup (along with other incredible soups/snacks. The potato soup is a hearty and “dill-icious” blend of yellow and red potatoes, locally grown garlic, homemade cashew cream, and SOS Dillicious. It is a quick and convenient comfort food to enjoy from a bowl. Defrost, heat and eat.
Rocky Glade Farm has added a few “newish” things to the market…Starbor Kale is back and hakurei turnips make a return. Also time to start thinking about Thanksgiving and that means sweet potatoes. We have Carolina Ruby, purple skin, bright orange flesh, great all purpose for casseroles, baking etc. Also, Covington is popular with bronze skin and orange flesh, again, great for all applications. We have them available by the pound, 5 pound bag or by the half bushel. Half bushel of course being the best deal of the day for all the sweet potato fans out there!
Flying S Farms has added Rosa Bianca Heirloom Eggplant- Lovely and delicious Italian heirloom: ideal for slicing, baking and roasting. Rosy-lavender with white shading, the fruits of this beautiful Italian heirloom small type 3/4-1 pound. With a mild, non-bitter flavor, the fruits’ robust shape is ideal for slicing, baking or roasting.
They have also added frozen blackberries,a tart cherry jam, and shallots to their amazing market offerings.
Sweet Pea is new this year and we love the offerings they bring. Bamboo stakes, FRESH CUT herbs, tomatillas that have been a salsa staple at my house for weeks now and delicious peppers.
Linda will be set up with her handiwork this week to get a jump start for cold-weather and holiday shopping.
West Wind Farms and Wedge Oak are taking holiday turkey reservations and have different size options available. You place the order, pay the deposit with your normal pickup and that is subtracted from your total when the turkey arrives! FRESH and local for the holidays!
Rainbow Hill has several varieties of apples! Don’t miss your chance to have these incredible, local, in-season apples while they last! Carol said that she thinks/hopes they will hold until Thanksgiving so there are a few more weeks!
As always, we thank L & L Contractors for their hospitality and generosity in hosting our market! Please remember them in your contracting needs! They support us so please return the support to them!
See you Wednesday!
