Market is OPEN -- Happy Father's Day

The Market is OPEN for another great week of local, fresh and delicious products from our Growers. Happy Father’s Day hope the day is filled with making special memories and reminiscing of those that are missed.

News from our Growers:

Trinity Rose: The Oberhasli Dairy Goats Ladies are really working hard and making lots of yummy nutritious milk. Farmer Arden has been busy in the milk kitchen making her award winning goat cheese (Chevre) which is available on the market this morning. Also for a probiotic boost try the kefir.

Spring Meadow Farm: Available this week, Kale, Fresh Garlic Bulb.

Oakview Farm: We have fresh Rainbow Swiss Chard on sale this week, along with Kale mix (Premiere and Curly). This Kale is naturally grown- no pesticides used! We feed our plants with kelp and cottonseed meal to keep them healthy.

Have you ever had a Turkey Egg? Have a few available this week. We continue to have duck eggs for sale from our Mallard, Pekin and Welsh Harlequin ducks. They are great for baking as the whites are much more sturdy than chicken eggs. Duck eggs also have a more ‘eggy’ quality so they are great for frittatas and quiches. We package our products in compostable and reusable containers, too!

CS3 Farms: Our shrub concentrate got some serious attention last week! We have made a few more of each if you saw the sold out notice and were unable to order!

We are also increasing our offerings of herbal honey infusions and have some new offerings this week!

We also have plenty of Pumpkin Seed and Sunflower butter, Herbal Power Balls, and Golden Pecan Bites, our Gourmet Mustards, Hummus, and herbal teas.

RnR Farms: Wonderful year-round soil grown lettuce, 6 choices to choose from. Delicious with any meal.

Flying S Farms: Beets, Cucumbers and Squash are available this week. Rosemary Breads and Rolls are back on the Market by request! Delicious Zucchini Blueberry Bars are available again, always a great snack.

Farrar Farm and Sow’s Pig Eatery: Excellent choices of cuts of meat and pork or sausages, a true crowd pleaser!

Short Mountain Cultures: Fermented foods, bulk items, Krauts, Tempeh wonderful ‘protein’ alternative.
