Market News

ORDERING IS OPEN FOR GREATER GREENVILLE/ TRAVELER’S REST USLG CUSTOMERS

With Thanksgiving less that a week away, the anticipation has definitely started building! Let Upstate Locally Grown provide you with all of those delicious seasonal foods you are craving. Bill Welch still has 4 turkeys left. They are heritage Bourbon Red turkeys.
Spurgeon Farm has added a variety of winter veggies, inlcuding broccoli, arugula, boc choy, and newly-added ginger. Mmm, how about adding fresh ginger to your pumpkin pie this year?

Be sure to stock up on plenty of Happy Cow cheeses, milks, and butter for your Thanksgiving baking. If you haven’t tried for yourself we can tell you, Dodi Spurgeon’s pies are better than your mama’s. Putney Farm eggs, Welch and Son chicken, and plenty of beef from Richard at Nature’s Beef will provide loads of comfort meals for you and your family as the days grow shorter and colder.

In addition to your order of Putney Farm Eggs, Nature’s Beef, Welch & Son chicken, Happy Cow milk products, Swamp Rabbit Cafe baked goods, and more, be sure to click on “vegetables” on the left-hand navigation bar of our market page and spend some time browsing veggies. More greens and other fall vegetables will be available in the coming weeks. And don’t forget, we also have shelled and unshelled pecans!
