Opening Bell: Wickles, Squash, Jam, Honey!


Good afternoon!
Wickles will be available in the extra table refrigerator this Friday at pick up. Several folks have been asking when I would make some more, so Friday after market I picked up some freshly picked cucumbers from Strack Farm on Lower Ridge Road and made 14 pints on Saturday morning. Come early before they’re all gone. They’ll be the star of your next grill-out. Eat them all up and bring the jars back please :-).
Julie’s Sweet Shoppe is taking a week of vacation but will be back next week with their wonderful products!

Heirloom beans from Bradford Valley Farm.

LouJane at Rockwood Crafts has been sewing hundreds of masks to keep your loved ones safe during this global health crisis. They are cloth with elastic and wonderful fabric designs. Keep a couple in your cars so you are never without one.

It looks like Sweden Creek will not be having any shiitake mushrooms for the foreseeable future. I am looking for another local shiitake producer but it may take time. In the meantime, try some of the other varieties listed by Wye Mountain mushroom farm. I’ve heard the lions mane and oyster mushrooms are excellent!

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.

Be sure to SEARCH for your favorite items using the search field. For instance, type in the word “sale” or “pork” and see what pops up. We have almost 500 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! :-)

Opening Bell: Garlic, Shiitakes, Squash, Honey!


Good afternoon!
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!

Ratchford Farms has a limited amount of beef listed. Due to processing limitations, this may be all that’s available for 4 weeks. Stock up!

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.
