We’ve got farm fresh cut flower bunches, gorgeous bright blue edible flowers, and loads of colorful floral confetti in the market this week! The growing season is in full swing after all this great rain and sunshine! Don’t miss out!

East Fork Farm/Worm Castings: Had a bit of delay from the tornado damage at our farm area but it didn’t stop our worms from making beautiful Castings.

Organic worm castings sold in 3 lb and 10 lb bags. Bulk orders are available by contacting us. Can be used on anything that grows: household plants, gardens, lawn. 100% pet and child friendly.

Worm-tea-ni is a “brew” that can be made from worm castings. NOT INTENDED for human consumption.

Rainbow Hill Farm: We are back with a large selection of starter plants for your home gardens. Tomato, Peppers, Cucumbers and more. Plants are in biodegratable cups, you only need to put them in the ground.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: we have a large selection of house plants, hanging plants, herb plants, several items for your home and garden.

Quarter Spring Farm: is very excited to be processing new birds for the spring. We have several cuts back in stock this week, and should have even more on the market next week. We also have our usual collection of skin softening goat’s milk soaps and lotions. They would make a great gift for Mother’s Day (hint, hint)

Pinky’s Micros: Microgreens and sprouts are extremely dense in vital enzymes, minerals and vitamins, and chlorophyll. There aren’t many foods you could eat that are fresher. Put them on your sandwich, top your salads with them, or use them in place of lettuce.

Every season we’ll be creating new blends to represent each season. Along with Peas, Rose Radish, Broccoli, Basic salad Mix, and Sunflower.

Shroomegy Gourmet Mushrooms: is growing some beautiful Rocky Top Blue Oysters this week! I replaced the button mushrooms in a Chicken Marsala with my blue oysters, and the flavor was fantastic. We also have some Lion’s Mane available. A great use for Lion’s Mane is to sauté it with butter and garlic. Toss with prepared spaghetti and parmesan cheese.

We are offering house dried, pesticide and chemical free Lion’s Mane powder! Lion’s Mane mushrooms contain bioactive substances that have beneficial effects on the body, especially the brain, heart, and gut. Research is being conducted into their possible effectiveness against dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, neurological disorders, and even depression and anxiety.

MISC MARKET NOTES

Misc Ordering Info


As you can see from the New & Relisted section below our grower’s gardens are starting to share their bounty! We hope you’ll take advantage of this.

Please know that many items get added/restocked/relisted without our knowledge! We share info like that as often as possible but with over 200 products there’s a lot of room to miss things!

Regardless we encourage you to order early for limited quantity items and check the Market page a day or two later before closing for anything else that may have been added.

In unrelated news – a new vendor has been added! We’re looking forward to seeing all the good things that come out of K’s Kitchen. She’s been perfecting her skill for some time. It may be next week before product listings show so keep an eye out for her baked goods.

Retro picnic

AVALON FARMS:
Seems like it’s been a long time coming, but the garden is finally producing well. Added several veggies this week. Will possibly have cucumbers next week.

Unfortunately the snap peas were lost to a failed refrigerator. 60 degrees is too warm. Actually it was apparently the perfect temperature for mold to flourish. SO SAD. I almost cried.

We look forward to seeing you next Friday at one of our pickup locations. Thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible!
