Lots of excellent local food available this week. Shiitakes are back! We still have some freshly cured garlic and elephant garlic, along with a full assortment of coffee. And chicken from Bradford Valley Farm! They also offer ground up chicken frames for pet food your dog will love! Cucumbers are coming in strong so you might consider making some pickles.

Congratulations to Sandra, Shawn and Izzy. Baby Emilia arrived after market on Friday!

Opening Bell: Salad Mix, Potatoes, Squash, Honey!


Good afternoon!
How about that extras table Friday! It’s not even officially summer yet, and we already have squash, zucchini, garlic and cucumbers. Each week will see new items available to order online and on the extra table. Like many other places, we have been experiencing a meat shortage. Pork has been added, and chicken options should be available very soon. Ratchford Farm has some beef listed. They are working hard to provide top quality meat during this difficult time.

New Grower! We are pleased to announce that Shaky K Farm has been added as a grower for our market. Read about them under the tab: our growers. They are a family farm in Bee Branch, just up the road. Billianne and her crew have earned a great reputation in the area for producing nutritious food the natural way. The first item they are offering is whole chickens!

If you are like me, and one could only hope they are, your garden is a special place of peace and refuge, where your senses are treated to the best of Nature. Our eyes see the colorful flowers and intricate plants. With our ears, we hear the wind chimes and leaves rustling. But what of the nose? We bend in to smell flowers to enjoy their sweet aroma, but what if there was a way for larger areas of your garden to emit a scent that would
set your mind at ease and lift the soul? Good news! Holy basil is a vigorous annual that has a very soothing aura carried easily on a slight breeze. You can experience it yourself to fully understand what it adds to a garden. Plants now available.

Our market will continue to meet in the lobby every Friday. Our volunteers will be wearing masks. Your order can be brought to your car in the parking lot by one of our dedicated volunteers. Just text me when you are parked, and we will bring your order to your vehicle. 501-339-1039.

Wickles! CLG Pickup TODAY 3:30-6pm. Bring eggshells, glass jars, & egg cartons please.


Good morning,
We will have 12 jars of bread & butter pickles, and 12 jars of spicy dill pickles (wickles) in the fridge today. These are refrigerator pickles so keep them in your fridge and they’ll stay crunchy. There will also be some cucumbers, garlic, and dill on the extras table if you want to make your own pickles.

Pick up will continue to be in the lobby until further notice. Please wear a mask and keep 6 feet distance. You can enter the lobby from the courtyard or the south parking area.

Opening Bell: Garlic, Potatoes, Carrots, Honey!


Good afternoon!
Delicious and zesty organic garlic is now available from Cedar rock Ridge. This award-winning garlic is some of the best we’ve ever grown. Rich soil, ample rainfall, and a mild winter combined to make an abundant harvest. Keep them in a cool dark place and the bulbs will last for months. Stock up because there won’t be any more until next June. If you make pickles, you’ve got to have fresh garlic. And since we are talking about it, we will have 12 jars of wickles and 12 jars of bread and butter pickles available on the extra table this Friday. :-0 People often ask me, they say: Larry, what are wickles? So I explain to them that wickles (wicked hot pickles) are quite possibly the world’s finest zesty dill pickles. I make them with my own organic dill, garlic and hot peppers. Put them on a sandwich and get ready. They’ll change your life!

If you want to make pickles but can’t find pickling cucumbers yet, try the zucchini from Strack farm. I’ve made a batch of dill pickles using zucchini and they were amazing!

If you haven’t started a garden yet, or want to add a few more tomato plants, there are still a few Brad’s atomic grape tomato plants and Cherokee purple tomato plants available for $1.50 each.

We have been enjoying a wide variety of mushrooms at our market. Unfortunately, we won’t be having any shiitake mushrooms for a couple of months. Use this opportunity to try some of the other varieties available.

We are about a week away from being restocked with chicken and beef. And egg production should increase soon also.

A couple of your items are being added to the market this week. Check out mushroom spinach cheese quiche, lemon chicken, rice tortilla soup, key lime pie from Salscilla Farm.

Our market will continue to meet in the lobby every Friday. Our volunteers will be wearing masks. Your order can be brought to your car in the parking lot by one of our dedicated volunteers. Just call or text me when you are parked, and we will bring your order to your vehicle. 501-339-1039.
