Opening Bell:

Good afternoon!
We are ecstatic at Cedar Rock Ridge, as our organic garlic has won a 1st Place blue ribbon, and BEST IN SHOW at this year’s Faulkner County fair. Even more amazing is that this is the second time in three years it has won best in show. Out of the hundreds of entries, the judges saw something extraordinary in the garlic. We think it’s pretty special too and will be offering potted garlic plants again this year so you can experience this amazing and un-named strain of garlic in your own gardens. Only $1 per plant.

If you are out in the woods much, you may catch the passing scent of ripe persimmon fruit. Carissa and I collected about 30 this afternoon, and she baked delicious persimmon tart for dessert. Persimmon has a delicious flavor and creamy texture that should be experienced during the short season.

We’ve been having a lot of excellent items on the extra table lately. Earlier shoppers get the best selection. We are normally ready for customers to start arriving around 3 PM if you happen to be out and in the area. Just text me to see if we’re ready.

Be sure to SEARCH for your favorite items using the search field. Four instance, type in the word “sale”and see what pops up. We have over 575 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! :-)
