Spa City Local Farm Market Co-op:  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Spa City Co-op turned 10 years old with this last market, an accomplishment of many parts. We gave out tote bags with the co-op logo on them with each order, and it’s time to thank our ‘sponsors’, Carol Scholp and Kayse Williams, two original members of the co-op from 2008, who covered the costs of those bags.
We hope you enjoy the new tote bags, and ‘tote’ lots of co-op-purchased groceries home with them.

Thanks also to our vendors who left gift products to give away. it’s always fun to get something free.

The next market opens on June 23rd. Stay with us for more great co-op products and community fun.

“News from our Vendors”:

From Wedge Oak Farm: We have some delicious handmade small batch sausages, chicken, duck and pork cuts available this week. Our Honey Pig Sausage is a chipotle pepper and honey sweetened sausage that is packed in a one pound pack of 4 links. Slightly hot and finishing sweet it is a delicious sausage to add to a dish or cook and eat alone. Also available this week is Wild Onion Sausage. Small Batch and hand made from our pasture raised hogs, this one is delicious for breakfast lunch and dinner.

From Flying S Farms: We have added Cucumbers, Candy Onions and Large Bat like Green Zucchini that can be grated for baking, fritters or stuffed. The summer heat fluctuation has caused our Broccoli and Cauliflower heads to be a little small but they are still delicious raw or cooked, great tossed on the grill.
