Opening Bell: Spinach, Cheese, Pork, Plants!


Good afternoon!

Spring has sprung! I’m getting excellent reports from our growers about early crops ready to be harvested. Spinach, onions, asparagus, lettuce, radishes, turnips, etc. The mild winter and abundant rain means lots of local vegetables will be available sooner than last year. Early shoppers also saw the first cabbage of the year on the extra table Friday!

This week you will also find several options for cut flower arrangements from Bell Urban Farm. Get one for yourself, and one to give to a neighbor or loved one. They will Be beautiful for well over a week.

Save a bundle on a 25 pound box of eggs from Drewry Orchards this week. It is literally a box with 25 pounds of fresh eggs. A pound of eggs is between six and 10 eggs so this is over 200 fresh eggs. Share some with your family and neighbors and they’ll love you forever. ! We have egg cartons so you can package them into dozens right at the market. Deviled eggs, boiled eggs, omelettes, quiche, fried eggs, poundcake. The possibilities are endless!

Several varieties of cheese are now available under the dairy section.

At Cedar Rock Ridge this week, I divided my scarlet Beebalm, horseradish, and comfrey plants, so they are now available well-rooted and ready to grow in your garden. In about two weeks, we will have orange marigolds, yellow marigolds, and vinca plants in 4-packs available. Marigolds placed around your garden attract pollinators and deter pests. With marigolds, more is better. Lemongrass plants will also be ready soon!

Be sure to SEARCH for your favorite items using the search field. We have over 740 items available now!

Most items are listed by 6pm Sunday, but check back again before the market closes Tuesday night to see if any other items are ready to be harvested for you! Eat fresh! Eat local! Eat for better health!

And save your eggshells throughout the week for the laying hens! :-)

Tamales! Opening Bell: Eggs, Flowers, Cookies, Sausage!


Good afternoon!

It’s Tamale time! This Friday we’ll have Doña Estela’s amazing homemade Tamales! She will make them Friday morning and have them at market Friday afternoon. You can get 5 Pork tamales for $7, or 5 Chicken tamales for $7, or 5 jalapeño and cheese tamales for $7. To place an order, please add a note to your CLG order, or text me at 501-339-1039. Delicious with sides of re-fried beans and rice, topped with a bit of salsa and sour cream.

Now is a good time to be planting hardy perennials. If you want to attract lots of pollinators for your tomatoes or peppers, I think Anise hyssop is one of the best around! If you are looking for a vine to climb a wall or trellis, consider Hops. If you want beautiful perennial evergreen plants that produce pretty flowers in winter, Try Hellebores. To see the plants available on the market now, search the word: PLANT.

Opening Bell: Bratwurst, Honey, Coffee, Plants!


Good afternoon!

OK, so here’s the deal: It’s probably too early to set out Tomato and Pepper PLANTS, but…you’ll find some listed this week! I started a variety of seeds for my garden at Cedar Rock Ridge in late January. They’re ready for their new homes, but will need to be kept inside for a couple more weeks. It may be 20 degrees tonight, but it will be mid 60’s at market pickup on Friday! Get a jump start on spring by getting some green in your windows now. Check them out: Brad’s Atomic Grape Tomato, Japanese Eggplant, Shishito Pepper, Brazilian Starfish Pepper, and Blueberry Cherry Tomato Plants!

If you arrived to pickup early on Friday, you found STRAWBERRIES on the extras table! Expect more in about two weeks or so.

Be sure to SEARCH for your favorite items using the search field. We have over 700 items available now!
