The Market is Back Open


Welcome back to another week of local products. New items have been added this week and specials are being run by some producers.

  • Dogwood Valley Greenhouse is running a special on perennials this week. Now is a very good time to start or add to a perennial garden. Planted now, perennials will have time to grown strong, healthy roots before cold weather. Good roots in fall mean plentiful blooms in spring. Get your perennials now… regularly $6 each, they are 3 for $15 this week. Price adjustment will be made at pick up.
  • Flying S Farms added Pumpkin Dark Chocolate Chip Bars and several varieties of pumpkin breads.
  • Rainbow Hill Farm has Jonagold, Mutsu, Rome, Red and Yellow Delicious apples.
  • Rocky Glade Farm has added beets, honey, potatoes and several other products.

Check out the other items we have while browsing the categories as we are offering more products this week.

Thank you for your orders last week.

Time to Order Local Food


The Market opens this morning with October arriving later in the week. The listings keep expanding too. Be sure to browse the categories and see what all the farmers and producers have for you.

Meadow Branch Beef has re-stocked their products. Nuance Coffee and Tea just gave us a little tease last week and has added more items to his list.

I have heard people commenting about trying to be gluten free. Wild Flours has a bread that is gluten free.

Gardens will still grow and now is the time to plant. See what Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has to offer.

After a brief period of an egg shortage, the chickens are back in full swing laying plenty for you.

Also if you have not “liked” the Market’s page on Facebook, take a look at our page. Additions and last minute announcements usually appear there.

Thank you for your orders last week.

Welcome back to another week of locally grown and made products. Did you enjoy yesterday’s hint of Fall? We are starting to see some of the Fall produce (lettuce and greens) on the Market but there is still plenty of summer produce (peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers and squash) available.

Besides apples, Rainbow Hill Farm has added Kieffer pears this week. White City Produce and Greenhouse also has Bronze Muscadines listed in the fruits category.

Time to Order Local Food


Welcome to September and Happy Labor Day Weekend. Summer finally arrived this past week and really heated things up but that has not stopped plants from growing.

Items of interest this week include:

Another new product from Double Star Bar Farm is a Natural Bug Repellent.

From Maura “This all natural flying bug repellent keeps those pesky flying critters away WITHOUT all the harsh chemicals and oily slime of commercial repellents. It is made with water, lemon juice, peppermint essential oil, lavender essential oil, vanilla extract, and a drop of dish soap to help the oils emulsify. These super fragrant ingredients are hated by so many bugs, so doesn’t it just make sense to use them in a spray to keep them away?

This great smelling spray can also be used in place of those commercial room/upholstery sprays (like fabreze) to freshen your room and furniture without harm to pets.

Sold in 4 oz. spray bottles."

Thank you for your orders last week.
