Please share the contact info above with all your friends and let them know that we are the only market that stays open year-round in Faulkner County. Many thanks to Caleb for volunteering to help keep the Facebook page updated.

Many of you have, no doubt, made some amazing meals with the items you order from CLG. If you would like to share a recipe or two, I will be glad to post them on the site for others to enjoy. Please email me your recipes and I’ll work on getting them uploaded.

It’s about time to get your Thanksgiving meal planned and ordered. Items like sweet potatoes and winter squash will keep for many weeks, so go ahead and order them now, ahead of the rush. And I’m needing indoor homes for about a dozen lemongrass plants. Reduced to only $2.25. Great for tea!

Opening Bell. New Grower!


We are pleased to welcome Ginger Hensley to Conway Locally Grown. She and her husband grow a variety of vegetables and berries just east of Vilonia at Cypress Valley Farm. Please take a look at her grower profile, and also the items she is listing this week: blackberry vinegar, blackberry syrup, baked goods, apple butter & applesauce. They are planning for next year’s garden now, which will include blackberries, cantaloupes, and lots of other veggies.

From Cedar Rock Ridge: This morning I made my last batch of WICLKES for the year using cucumbers from Barnhill Orchards and Yellow Congo peppers and garlic from my own organic garden. You won’t see these again until next July so stock up. Only 6 quarts and 6 pints.

Even though temps are finally cooler, there are lots of super vegetables still available. Enjoy the bounty!
