Opening Bell: Asparagus, Micro-Greens, Honey, Cheese!


Good afternoon!
25 pounds of eggs for $25. That’s what you can get this week from Druery. Maybe you could give some farm fresh eggs to your neighbors and family, or coworkers. Or maybe you need to cook breakfast for your civic group or football team. In any event, that’s a lot of farm fresh eggs!

Bacon! Time to stock up the freezer. Grass Roots has 1.5 pound packages of End Cut smoked Bacon for only $8.00!

As you plan your garden, please remember to bring back your plant containers and pots to the market. We will reuse them.

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! :-)

Opening Bell: Green Onions, Salad Mix, Kale, Cheese!


Good afternoon!
Many gardens are off to a slow start this season because of the two late frosts we had. Looks like all of that is behind us now so it’s safe to plant your tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, etc. At Cedar rock Ridge, our vegetable garden is 90% planted. We hope to get the last peppers and tomatoes in the ground tomorrow. The garlic has begun to form bulbs, and we are on track for a nice harvest in early June.

Consider adding coneflowers to your garden this year. I currently have over 100 plants in five colors growing: cream, yellow, orange, red, and purple. Save a spot in your garden for some of these hardy, perennial flowers. And birds love the seeds! As you plan your garden, please remember to bring back your plant containers and pots to the market. We will reuse them.

Thanks to Mable at Everette Brown Farm for bringing Spinach for the extras table on Friday. :-)

I heard the word “zucchini” from two Growers this week. If the weather warms up a little, it won’t be long…

Fresh-roasted and ground Coffee available now!

Good afternoon!
Freeze forecast for tonight!!! Protect your plants now! Reports coming in from Growers indicate that many plants were killed or damaged by the frost last week. Annual crops like Tomatoes and Peppers can be replanted with new plants, but fruits like Peaches and Apples will not recover and the year’s harvest will be severely affected unfortunately. Regardless of the situation, our Growers will continue to work diligently to provide us with the best local food possible. #dedication!

Fresh-roasted and ground Coffee available now!

Opening Bell: Coffee, Honey, Chard, Kale!


Good afternoon!
Ice in the birdbath! As feared, we had a hard freeze last night where the temps were below freezing for about 4 hours. I’ve talked to several of our Growers this afternoon and so far, damage has been minimal. Now we are on the march to plant all of our remaining seedlings: Tomatoes, Peppers, Eggplant, etc. One thing we don’t know yet is the damage to Apple and Peach trees. Fingers crossed!

Fresh-roasted and ground Coffee available now!

Here’s something fun to do: type in the word “SALE” in the search field, and then stock up the freezer on your favorite items. Ground pork, ribs, turkey wings! And Tara will be harvesting Carrots, Curly Kale, and Chard for you this week!

Lots of folks turned out Saturday morning for the 1st Annual Plant Sale at Bell Urban Farm. Kim and Zach put in a lot of work to make the event a success for plant vendors and customers alike. Despite the sleet, over a thousand plants found new homes in gardens as far away as Fairfield Bay and beyond. Congrats!

If you missed the plant sale, we still have plenty of plants listed this week. Search the word “PLANT” to see all the options.
