News From Our Growers:

Rainbow Hill Farm: FREE STONE PEACHES have arrived, Blackberries still available.

6R Farms: We have added Mountain Fresh Tomatoes available by the pound, basket or box, Sweet Corn, Okra, Green Beans and Jalapeno Peppers.

Caney Fork Farms: We now have Pork along with Lamb items on the market this week along with assorted produce.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farms): We are back from Florida, where it is hot and humid — just like home! We have another ”traditional” tea available. We are adding Oolong tea because it, like many herbs and other teas, has been demonstrated to have antioxidant properties. It also tastes quite good. We may have some sweet potato greens available, but not a whole lot. If you haven’t eaten sweet potato greens, they are a mild leaf that can be substituted for spinach or a thin lettuce leaf and eaten raw or cooked.
We have more turnips available as well as our herbal honeys, shrub (drinking vinegar) concentrates, nut butters, and other deliciousness.

Sow’s Ear Piggery: will be updating pork listings in 2-3 weeks once a butcher date is set. We hope our customers will be patient for our new products, as this will probably be the best pork we’ve raised and offered for sale.

Flying S Farms: Assorted Cherry tomatoes are back! Ranging from Black Cherry, 2 Bites, Sungolds, Amy’s Apricot, Purple Bumble Bee and more! Sorry some of our Summer Squash and Zucchini have suffered from the heat and rains this past week. We are replanting and will be back on the market soon.

Grower Notes


Diet – we’re involved in it simply by virtue of being a Farmer’s Market. We here at Market at Dothan count it a privilege to bring you Fresh, Local, Sustainable and Year Round foods made right here in the Wiregrass. It’s an honor we don’t take for granted! While all of our growers and producers embrace those four core values, we know that not everyone can and does eat the same way! For that reason this is the start of a series of articles examining diets and diet plans. One size does NOT fit all and our goal is to educate and encourage you as you make your own best wise choices. Thank you for being part of our Market Family – we appreciate you so much!

What follows is adapted from the Mayo Clinic along with information from other sources.

When it comes to eating plans, whether weight loss, blood sugar or something else, there’s no shortage of advice. Magazines, books and websites all promise that you’ll meet your goals, especially weight loss, using diets that eliminate fat or carbs or those that tout superfoods or special supplements. With so many conflicting options, how do you know which approach might work for you? Here are some suggestions for choosing a health or weight-loss program.

1. Involve your doctor in your weight-loss efforts. Before you start a health or weight-loss program, talk to your doctor. Your doctor can review your medical issues and medications that might affect your weight and provide guidance on a program for you. And you can discuss how to exercise safely, especially if you have physical or medical challenges, or pain with daily tasks. Tell your doctor about your previous efforts to lose weight. Be open about fad diets that interest you. Your doctor might be able to direct you to weight-loss support groups or refer you to a registered dietitian.

This diet was ranked the best overall by US News and is recommended by the American Heart Association.

2. Consider your personal needs.There’s no one diet or weight-loss plan for everyone. But if you consider your preferences, lifestyle and weight-loss goals, you’ll likely find a plan you can tailor to your needs.
Before starting a weight-loss program, think about:

  • Diets you’ve tried. What did you like or dislike about them? Were you able to follow the diet? What worked or didn’t work? How did you feel physically and emotionally while on the diet?
  • Your preferences. Do you prefer to do a weight-loss program on your own, or do you want support from a group? If you like group support, do you prefer online support or in-person meetings?
  • Your budget. Some weight-loss programs require you to buy supplements or meals, visit weight-loss clinics or attend support meetings. Does the cost fit your budget?
  • Other considerations. Do you have a health condition, such as diabetes, heart disease or allergies? Do you have cultural or ethnic requirements or preferences regarding food?


New & Relisted Products – Woo-Hoo!

  • Roselle Hibiscus Leaves from Mayim Farm
  • Pecan Pie from Laura’s Confections
  • Raspberry Walnut Torte from Laura’s Confections
  • Mocha Torte from Laura’s Confections

MAYIM FARM: This is our last Market cycle before we go on vacation for a few weeks, so if you need any herbals before the first or second week in August they will need to be ordered this week for delivery on Friday, July 19.

MARTIN TEAS:  No orders week July 16-20. Vacation Thanks!

DANNY’S GREENS: Danny is giving his plants a break this week to catch up. Even with the welcome rains they grow much slower in the summer heat. Thanks for your understanding.
