NEW GROWER! Opening Bell: Turnips, Kale, Goat Cheese, Lettuce!


Good afternoon!

Just a reminder that our market will be OPEN every Friday in December.

NEW GROWER! We are very pleased to welcome Scott Sparks from Cadron Valley Acres. We toured Scott’s garden in Conway the day after Thanksgiving and were very impressed with his current chemical-free operation, as well as his vision for expanding next season. He currently has Turnips, Kale, Mustard Greens, and Napa Cabbage. He’s joining CLG at the end of the year, but will be erecting a high tunnel in February to get a jump start next spring. He also grows a very interesting, heat tolerant cilantro-like herb you will want to try. Read about all our Growers under the OUR GROWERS tab at the top of the page.

As we near the holidays, Growers will have several inexpensive gift items listed and on the EXTRAS table, including USDA rawhide treats for puppies! This Friday Maria will be set up with BBQ Pork and a variety of chocolate covered goodies, like Cherries, Ptetzels, Oreos…

Also at the market this Friday, local author Nancy Allen will be promoting her new book, “A Down-Home Twelve Days of Christmas”. She will have books available for sale. You might even ask her to autograph your copy!

Goat Cheese!…and that’s all I need to say about that.

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!

Opening Bell: Coffee, Honey, Eggs, Kale!


Good afternoon!

Just a reminder that our market will be open every Friday in December. Several of our Growers have season-extending high tunnels that allow greens to be harvested deep into winter. Since this tends to be a slower time of year, you may also see some Growers taking a week or two off here and there, but we will always have a good selection of delicious, locally-grown food.

Make your own beef jerky! One batch turns 2 pounds of GROUND BEEF into 1 pound of delicious and nutritious BEEF JERKY, perfect for hiking or road trips. It’s easy, and inexpensive, with an electric dehydrator, and I will walk you through it if you need help. Don’t have a dehydrator? Well, now you can rent a dehydrator from CLG! Pick it up on Friday, use it all week, and return it to the next market. This is a 4-tray American harvest food dehydrator and jerky maker. Comes with instruction manual and recipe guide. If someone would like to get it this Friday and keep it until the next Friday, just text me (501-339-1039)and I will hold it for you. You can make a lot of beef jerky in about 6 hours. Also has a special tray for making fruit leather (fruit roll-ups). Only $4 per week.

Cedar Rock Ridge now has their 2017 Faulkner County Fair Best of Show Award-winning Garlic listed for only $1 per plant. Ready to transplant into your garden now!

Kale, Lettuce, Spinach, Green Tomatoes, Carrots, Eggs, Radishes, etc. Please take a minute to read about Rattle’s Garden in Vilonia. Tara and her family have done an amazing job since starting their operation from scratch a few years ago. Now she is able to produce A LOT of organic, chemical-free products for several markets. Read about our Growers under the OUR GROWERS tab at the top of the page.
