News from some of Our Growers:

RnR Farm:
We are happy to back with a great selection of our lettuce this week, Butterhead, Green Leaf, Red Leaf, Romaine Trio and Lettuce Blend. So you know we never use synthetic chemicals or pesticides on our property and all of our produce is grown in the ground, using the fewest inputs possible.

Due to work travel, our pork products will be on vacation mode this week. Please watch for added products in next week’s market.

Jillian Faith Art:
Having a hard time finding a gift to cheer you or someone spirts up during these cold winter days. I have several Original Water Color prints available. Prints will come inside a protective sleeve with a foam backing (which is not attached) to ensure each print stays protected and have a few already in frames

Many have asked ‘What can I do with Mushroom Powder’? Use them to help bring more flavor to soups and stews without adding texture or meat products. Sprinkle across a salad for an extra ‘wow’ factor. Mix into meatloaf or burger patties to add an extra depth of flavor without necessarily adding bulk or texture. Sprinkle in pasta sauces for added depth of flavor.

The Flour Girl:
Looking for a special gift, dessert or something that is Gluten Free, I have just what you need; Apple, Pumpkin Pie, GF Peach Cobbler, Fudge, Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries, GF Bread, GF Blueberry Muffins, GF Angel Food Cake, Chocolate Cake and Cupcakes.
