TAMALES! Opening Bell: Chicken, Honey, Rice, Eggs!

Good afternoon!

School is back in full swing and our schedules are filled with things to do. Shopping for locally produced and grown food at Conway Locally Grown can save you time and hassle. Shop online from over 650 items, then just swing by and pick up your order on Friday afternoon.

Grow some fall tomatoes! Our hot, dry summers often leave our spring planted tomatoes in sad shape by this time of year. Start over now and you can harvest Tomatoes a few weeks before they freeze in December. At Cedar Rock Ridge I started some organic Cream Sausage Tomatoes at the end of July. Search “cream” and try your first ever fall Tomatoes. You can do it! Great gifts for your gardening co-workers too.

At market this Friday, new Grower, Judith Allen from SalScillia Farm in Mayflower, will be set up with some fresh baked goodies, Honey, and Veggies. This is a great opportunity to find out more about her operation. Look for a variety of vegetables, eggs, and baked goods. Her laying hens are fed non-GMO, omega-rich grain.

On Friday, it was nice to have Greg and Kinsey Bradford from Bradford Valley Farm in Damascus! They are a young family looking to produce more food from their 50 acre operation. Currently they have Eggs and Pasture-Raised Chicken. Pastured Pork and grass-fed Beef should be available in September!

Tamales! Also on 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. To get an idea of how many she should prepare, please add a note to your order, or text me at 501-339-1039. If you do that, she will have your Tamales labeled for you. She may bring extras too. Delicious with sides of refried beans and rice, topped with a bit of salsa. They freeze very well so get some for several meals.

Be sure to SEARCH for your favorite items using the search field. Over 650 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! :-)
