News From Our Growers:

BB’s Gourmet Pretzels: Our Gourmet Pretzels will go great during the Super Bowl or just for a quick snack. Smudges – cinnamon & Sugar, Delicate Heat – sweet/heat flavor, Garlic – rich garlic, savory & buttery flavor, Lemon Pepper – powerful lemon pepper taste.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farms): Craving fresh greens? Our wild rocket arugula is going strong. Our roasted red pepper hummus was a favorite last week, and our elderberry concentrate syrup (now I’m 16 oz. containers) and (new) fire cider (in 8 oz. containers) will help you through the winter illness season. Our Shrubs (drinking vinegars/tonics made with honey) can be added to bubbly or regular water or warmed to make your favorite beverage oh-so-good.

The Sugared Spoon: Last week for Confetti cookies! Look for a new creation for February. Can’t decide what to try? Pick the assortment and message me what you’d like in it!

Mushamo Valley: This week, available is Jake Hates Sprouts are a tasty blend of alfalfa, red clover, broccoli, kale, and burgundy amaranth sprouts. Not merely for invigorating plain ole salads, this blend is well-suited to burgers and sandwiches, sprinkled on tacos or omelets, gently stirred into scramble eggs, or used as a delicious and eye catching soup topper.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: One of my favorite houseplants is Aloe Vera, a kitchen staple to treat burns, skin infections, wounds. Its natural gel has a soothing effect and helps to relieve pain by inhibiting formation of tissue-injuring compounds that gather at the site of a skin injury….Beyond topical use, Aloe Vera juice can be added to vegetarian recipes to give a powerful nutritional punch. This somewhat bitter juice can be disguised in smoothies, juicing recipes and salad dressings. Aloe contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other trace elements that work together to heal and repair the body and boost the immune system.
Whatever the choice is for use, Aloe Vera should be a part of everyone’s kitchen arsenal.

Short Mountain Cultures: Along with our Fermented Foods and Beverages, Bulk Food and by request we now offer Hatcher Dairy products to the market. Available this week Heavy Cream, Half & Half, Chocolate Milk and Cream Top Whole Milk.

Oakview Farm: Our free range eggs come in speckled, blue and tan colors from our flocks of Araucana and Buckeye hens.

Quarter Spring Farm: We have Whole Chickens ranging from 4 to 7 pounds and select cuts available weekly during the winter season. Our handmade goat milk soaps are great for your skin or as a gift for your loved ones. Check out our stylish reusable cloth napkins, they are listed in Handmade & Gifts Category.
