Opening Bell: Pork, Plants, Honey, salad mix!

Good afternoon!

This may be a lengthy post, but holds lots of good information.

The weather forecast shows a freeze at the end of the week. That means many of our growers will be harvesting the last of their summer crops like squash, zucchini, peppers, etc. The extra table this Friday should be full of delicious vegetables, as well as some plants. Check out everything that is listed this week and get it while you can.

Remember to feed our feathered friends during the colder months when fewer bugs are available. We will try to have suet cakes for birds on the extra table every Friday for only $1.

Garlic plants are now available. This garlic won a blue ribbon and best of show at the county fair this year and two years ago. Only $1 per sprouted plant in a 2-inch pot. Transplant them into a sunny spot in your garden now. Will be ready to dig in early June. Figure 6 to 8 garlic plants per person in your family.

Something very big has just happened! Maria has agreed to make us a double batch of her delicious chicken tortilla soup. She will be set up at market on Friday so you can take some home and have it for supper right away, or put it in the fridge for an upcoming chilly night.

We’ve been having a lot of excellent items on the extra table lately. Earlier shoppers get the best selection. We are normally ready for customers to start arriving around 3 PM if you happen to be out and in the area. Just text me to see if we’re ready.

Be sure to SEARCH for your favorite items using the search field. Four instance, type in the word “sale” and see what pops up. We have over 400 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! :-)
