Independence,VA:  LOTS of PRODUCE AVAILABLE!


Hey Friends!

The online market is full of produce! We have beets, broccoli, cucumbers, carrots, onions, garlic, lettuce, kale, mushrooms, rainbow chard and even EGGPLANT available to order! A lot of what is available can be frozen, dehydrated or even canned and enjoyed later in the year! Seriously, you won’t regret preserving all of this delicious, tasty, locally grown produce this Winter! If you are available to pick up an order on Wednesday at Grayson Landcare between 4 pm and 6 pm then help our vendors out by placing an order this week.

Thanks and have a great day!

Greener Acres Farm:  Fresh Berries and Sour Cherries


Raspberries Are Here!!

Vine ripe red and black raspberries are back in season. Please be aware that berries are very weather dependent. We are estimating the amount that will be available but heavy rains or birds can affect actual amount harvested. Orders are filled on a first come-first served basis. If we can not fulfill your order, you will be refunded.

Pork and Rabbit Back in Stock

Heritage Hills Farm restocked their freezers with pork products and added rabbit.

Organic Milled Grains

Last week we added Appalachia Malting to our vendor list and we personally tried their buckwheat flour in buckwheat pancakes this weekend. DELICIOUS!!!

Bothered by Bugs??

Heritage Hills Farm has a new all natural bug repellent. Made with witch hazel, lemon eucalyptus essential oil, REAL vanilla extract and organic olive oil in a 2 oz glass spray mist bottle. Great for keeping nagging insects at bay, plus great for your skin!!

Have You Tried Swiss Chard?

Our colorful rainbow Swiss Chard is not only beautiful but nutritious and delicious. It can be eaten raw in salads, chopped and sauteed, on made with a hot bacon dressing.

Duette, FL:  Summer


Dear Customers,
David and I thank you for your continued support this year. This will be our last week this year to be open because we need to clear out for the planting that needs to be done at the end of July for next seasons markets. Please have a look at what we can offer this week. Between the heat and the rain, it is not much of an offering I am afraid .

Thank you,
David and Betty
Duette Locally Grown Market

The Wednesday Market:  The Market Is Open


Good afternoon.

The Wednesday Market is open for orders. Please place your order by 10 p.m. Monday. Orders are ready for pick up between 3 and 6 p.m. Wednesday. See the website for this week’s product offerings. Here is the link: https://wednesdaymarket.locallygrown.net/market

We hope everyone is enjoying summer. Our house is happy and alternately relaxed and busy. The boys are learning new skills and having fun at soccer camp and performing arts camp, and we have a family trip coming up soon.

Have you ever noticed that cows, chickens, goats, and gardens are oblivious to the holidays of human beings? Cows and goats still need to be milked, chickens keep laying eggs, and the abundance of the garden still needs picking. So, just remember that while summer is a time for most of us to relax, our farmers and producers are working as hard as ever and appreciate having orders to fill.

We hope you all have a great Sunday, and we’ll see you at the Market.

Thanks,

Beverly

Good afternoon!

Get some great items to grill over the Fourth of July weekend! Burgers, Brats, Hot Dogs, Zucchini, Peppers, Corn… Two Growers offer BULK Ground Beef at a discount. If you’ve never made dill pickles before, I encourage you to try it now! Find a refrigerator pickle recipe and video online, then order your pickling cucumbers from CLG. You’ll be happy with all the pickles you can make for around $5. And then let me know how they turn out. I’d love to hear about your success!

Several members have requested vegetables in smaller quantities for smaller households. As a result, Cedar Rock Ridge now lists several items for only a dollar: Jalapenos, Cayennes, Garlic, Cajun Bell, Cubanelle Peppers, etc.

This is the time of year when we see new items every week so be sure to search for your favorite items using the search field.

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!

Check out over 650 wonderful items listed right now. See you on Friday!

And save your eggshells throughout the week for the laying hens! :-)
