Opening Bell: Tamales, Pumpkins, Honey, Flowers!

Good afternoon!

We all know how delicious and healthy our organically produced food is at Conway Locally Grown, but what do folks outside our market think? Well, we got some feedback this week when I entered 4 items from Cedar Rock Ridge in the Faulkner County Fair. Many other items from area residents were entered to be judged by a panel of Master Gardeners. When all the dust finally settled, all four of our entries had won the coveted blue ribbons of first place in their categories! We are very happy to share our award winning Jalapeños, Banana Peppers, Garlic, and Cherry Tomatoes with our CLG family!

The fall flowers at Bell Urban Farm are beautiful! Get a bouquet this week.

Get ready for fall decorating with some mini-gourds and pumpkins from Drewry Orchards. They have pie pumpkins too. We will also have lots of mini-gourds on the Extras table on Friday.

Back the truck up! Grass Roots has their delicious Smoked Bacon Ends & Pieces for only $6. Fill up the freezer with Bacon because you will need it with your Purple Hull Peas when it’s cold outside. :-)

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. 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! :-)
