Happy first day of May!
Carol with Rainbow Hill Farm called us this morning letting us know that they are back on the market with lettuce this week AND they are now USDA Certified Organic! Congratulations!!
Linda from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has added a great hanging basket full of kitchen herb necessities customized by your tastes.
This Hanging Herb Garden is a porch or patio eye-catcher and ingredients for your next gourmet meal, all in one! Made especially for you or your loved one from herbs I have in the greenhouse, this special basket is sure to please gardener and gourmet alike. It’s easy care too – just water frequently and fertilize every two weeks per package directions to keep these herb plants growing strong all summer. The 14" diameter basket pictured contains, from center back, clockwise: Parsley, English Thyme, Variegated Oregano, and Purple Sage. All plants are large enough to begin harvesting. Specify in the comments which four herbs you would like me to use to customize your basket, and add an alternate choice as availability is somewhat limited. Available are the following: Sweet Basil, Lemon Balm, Oregano (Greek or variegated), Sage (Common, Golden, Purple), Thyme (Common, English, Lemon, Lime, or Silver-Edged), Salad Burnet, and Stevia
Double Star Bar Farms spring festival was postponed until May 14 due to forecasted storms. Mark your calendars! They will have items for sale, music, talks on cheesemaking, mushroom logs and more! Entry is just $5! While you are thinking of Double Star, think bagels! We know we do :D and appreciate every effort that Rod and Maura put into all they do! We hope this bit of rain gives them more and more asparagus to enjoy while its season lasts.
Thank you Jenny with Seeds of Success for setting up a sampling table and having plenty of extras to sell. It is always wonderful to meet our producers/growers and most of us enjoy meeting our valued customers.
Jenny has been working hard on new raw/dehydrated items for you. This week she offers decadent, dark chocolate Schatzie bites! (Don’t let the word dark in front of chocolate scare you away… these are DELICIOUS!)
We have eggs, eggs, eggs! Flying S , West Wind Farms , Wedge Oak all offer plenty of eggs right now!
Produce continues to roll in and be incredibly delicious and beautiful. Rocky Glade , Frontier Family and White City Produce are all keeping the produce department stocked very well for early season eating!
There is so much to be thankful for at all times and this is a time of abundance and spring renewal. May your days be abundant and your bodies and minds renewed this week. We thank you for your continued support of our market.
See you all Wednesday,
Ashleigh & Tracey
