Opening Bell: Bratwurst, Honey, Coffee, Plants!


Good afternoon!

OK, so here’s the deal: It’s probably too early to set out Tomato and Pepper PLANTS, but…you’ll find some listed this week! I started a variety of seeds for my garden at Cedar Rock Ridge in late January. They’re ready for their new homes, but will need to be kept inside for a couple more weeks. It may be 20 degrees tonight, but it will be mid 60’s at market pickup on Friday! Get a jump start on spring by getting some green in your windows now. Check them out: Brad’s Atomic Grape Tomato, Japanese Eggplant, Shishito Pepper, Brazilian Starfish Pepper, and Blueberry Cherry Tomato Plants!

If you arrived to pickup early on Friday, you found STRAWBERRIES on the extras table! Expect more in about two weeks or so.

Be sure to SEARCH for your favorite items using the search field. We have over 700 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! :-)

Good afternoon!

We are inching ever closer to spring, and now’s a good time to get ready for your garden. Whether its your first garden, or your 50th garden, we are wishing you the best! We will have lots of vegetable and flower seedlings listed on the market in late March, but here’s a few things you might want to do in the meantime.

Seed Swap this Saturday 11am – 1pm at the Faulkner County Library. With seed saving organizations from all over central Arkansas, as well as area farmers and gardeners in attendance, you will surely find the seeds and know-how you need to grow a bountiful garden this year. The seed library and other helpful resources will also be available.

And this Tuesday at the Library at 6pm, Kim Doughty from Bell Urban Farm is presenting a Seed Starting Workshop with great information for beginner and advanced gardeners.

Lots of Chicken, Pork, and Beef items available now so load up the freezer. And look at the new varieties of Coffee, all roasted just up the road in Rose Bud, Arkansas.

There’s a snake in my boot.
