Opening Bell

Greetings Conway Locally Grown Community,

I hope everyone got some of that lovely spring rain last night and early this morning. Not officially Spring yet I suppose, but it sure sounded like spring rain with the frogs “peeping” away loudly all through the storm. I bet all our farmers will be frantically stuffing seeds in the ground very soon if they aren’t already! All of my farm-work experience has been in raising animals, not veggies, so I don’t know the excitement a gardener must feel this time of year. But I do know the excitement of watching your pastures swell with green and your animals grow fat, and I’m looking forward to it more than ever this year after last summer’s drought.

The market is now open. Go to the market webpage to place your order, single-click the checkout button when you are finished, and you should receive a confirmation email when your order is placed. Please check out the messages below from two of our producers.

Happy Spring planting everybody!

Market Director
