Tamales! Opening Bell: Eggs, Suet Cakes, Honey, Salad Mix!


Good afternoon!

The Opening Bell email on Sunday afternoon is my attempt to highlight some items available each week so please take just a minute to see what’s going on at the market. Last week about 10 customers qualified for free Jam from Maria’s Homemade Country Fare. #freejam! What’s going to be next…?

This Friday Maria will have her delicious Chicken Tortilla Soup available for dinner takeout.

Scheduling note: We will NOT have market on the Friday after Thanksgiving, November 23rd. Time to stock up on all the food that makes your event special: Sweet Potatoes, Butternut Squash, Bacon, and how about hostess gifts, like Jam, Jelly, Soap, and Honey.

SEARCH all the Chicken options available: Whole, Tenders, Backs, Livers, Drumsticks, Thighs, etc.

Try growing Garlic & Elephant Garlic in your garden or flower bed. We have sprouted plants available now. Just place them in the ground now and they’ll be green all winter and ready to harvest in early June 2019. Great flavor for many of your favorite dishes!

Cooler temperatures means it’s time to think about feeding our feathered friends over the winter. An easy way to do this is with suet cakes. We will have some on the extras table all season for only $1 each. And we have some homemade birdfeeders to hold the suet cakes. Look for those on the extras table this Friday.

Now is the perfect time to plant perennial flowers that will bloom for years, starting next spring. We have plenty of old-fashioned Hellebores, Shamrock, Red, Yellow, Purple, and Cream Coneflowers, beautiful magenta-flowered rose Campion, white Bee Balm and others. Search PLANT to see everything that’s available now.

This Friday, Doña Estela and her amazing homemade Tamales! She will make them Friday morning and have them at market Friday afternoon. They will be 5 for $7 in 3 flavors: Pork, Chicken, or Jalapeño & Cheese (Organic Jalapenos from Cedar Rock Ridge). To place an order, please add a note to your CLG order, or text me at 501-339-1039. Delicious with sides of refried beans and rice, topped with a bit of salsa and sour cream. They freeze very well so get some for several meals.

Be sure to SEARCH for your favorite items using the search field. Over 550 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!

Opening Bell: FREE JAM, Honey, Fudge, Bacon


Good afternoon!

Given the choice between TRICK, or TREAT, most people would choose TREAT. It’s along those lines that this week we are offering a FREE half-pint of Jam or Jelly. This week, when you spend $50 or more, you can choose a FREE half-pint of Jam or Jelly from Maria’s Homemade Country Fare. So get your Meat, Eggs, Shiitakes, Honey, Vegetables, Fruit, and Sweets, and then when you get over $50 in your shopping cart, simply find your favorite Jam or Jelly half-pint and add it to your cart. At checkout on Friday, we will deduct that amount from your total…#freeisgood!

Check out the Sweet Potatoes and Apples now being harvested for you from Drewry Orchard.

For the best salad you have ever eaten, get some Salad Mix from Calvert Enterprises this week. It holds in the refrigerator for over a week!

Maria will be set up on Friday afternoon with a full assortment of her delicious canned items: Pickles, Okra, Eggs, and of course, lots of Jams & Jellies, but also Chocolate Covered Cherries and Strawberries!
