Come down to the event and see Ancient Awakenings, B & B Enterprises, Farm Fresh Foods, My Daily Bread, and Simply Southard.

Did you enjoy Yonah Coffee last Saturday, what a display and great products! I’ll miss the eroma of freshly brewed coffee at the market and I was so busy working I forgot to get a coffee/hazelnut scented candle, those were the best! Look for Yonah Coffee online the week of April 15th, can’t wait.

This week we’re excited to welcome Joyful Noise Acres back to the market selling chicken. She has whole birds, half and leg quarters available, all are frozen at pick up. This is the last of the chicken from their fall harvest. We stocked the freezer for our customers, so they didn’t have to stock theirs. We will have fresh chicken again starting the end of May.

Good Shepherd Herbals is now listed online. I’ve heard from 3 people that the trauma balm is amazing. Watch for the announcement on when she’ll be our Farmer of the Day. I know she’ll have some great herbal information for us.

Green Pasture – A group order for cod liver oil and/or coconut oil has started and I will be placing the order on Saturday, March 30th. The shipping usually takes about 9 days but I’m not sure what will happen with the holiday. If you want to place an order, please email me asap.
