Lathemtown Farm Fresh Market:  This Week at the Market


Squash is finally here! We have a steady flow now of green, golden and cue ball zucchini.
Next up should be the cucumbers – slicing and pickling varieties.
The okra is growing nicely and we should have plenty of green and my favorite – red in a few weeks! Another crop I can’t wait for is the cherry tomatoes. I have a “Champagne Bubbles” variety that looks to be quite good!
If you haven’t tried our Switchel – it is a delicious and hydrating beverage. It is now my favorite while working in this hot sun!
Look out for new soaps and herbal teas coming to the market soon!
Thanks again for all your container and jar returns! Remind me if I don’t issue your credit for your next order.

Have a great week!

This Saturday is Kids Day! The Market is open 8am-12pm, with Kids Day from 9am-12pm.

Be sure to “RSVP” those kiddos for the 2022 POP Club!

What does Kids Day look like this year?

1. We brought back the 2 Bite Club! We will be preparing 2 Bite Club samples for each kiddo to taste a different fruit, veggie, or recipe each month, purchased straight from our SSFM Farmers.
2. Each month your kiddos will receive POP tokens to spend with our farmers on veggies and fruits!
3. We will have local non-profits set up with additional activities, just for kids.
4. This will continue to be a FREE and fun event brought to you by Simmons Foods and Arvest Bank!

This will help us know how many kiddos plan to stop by during Kids Day (please remember that the program is set up for ages 3-12). Don’t forget, you’ll have to “RSVP” each month.

When you arrive at the market on Kids Day, head straight to the Outdoor Farmers Market Hub located in the Memorial Park concession stand from 9am-12pm to participate in POP Club activities. 2 Bite Club, POP tokens pick up, and all other information will be located at the concession stand.Your kiddos will earn their $2 tokens each Kids Day, then be able to shop the Outdoor Market, using their money to purchase fruits, vegetables, or a plant that produces fruit or vegetables. When you pick up your kits, be sure to peruse the market and check out the young entrepreneur Kids Day booths as well!
