Welcome to the Carolina Foothills Locally Grown weblog. Mainly this is a collection of e-mails that we send out each week to kick off the market, but also tells the tale of our little market.
Growers/producers may list their available products at any time now. To be available for each weeks market they must be posted no later than 8:00pm on Friday.
The site will be opened for shopping Friday evening at 9:00pm and remain open for shopping until 4 pm Monday afternoon.
Growers will drop-off their orders from 3:30 to 4:00 pm Tuesday & Wednesday. Customers can pick-up their products from 4:30 to 6:30 pm Tuesday and Wednesday (depending on pick up site).
Customers and growers please double check your drop-off and pick-up locations. Customers, you can specify your pick-up location when you order.

Happy Mother’s Day!
There are lots of NEW products for real good eating and sharing.
It’s really important to buy local food first! I personally get most of my weekly groceries here. ( And I grow a lot of my own food as well). It’s so satisfying knowing that my dollars went into a farmers hands than into corporate entities.
Farm Tours are scheduled soon. A lot of our farms here are participating in the CFSA coming in June. More details later. CAFE is planning a tour of farms as well. So there will be plenty of opportunity to visit any farm you want!
Plus, most farmers allow a stop in visit. May even put you to work. ( I know I would!)!
Take care of your moms, buy local food and craft , and Eat Well!
Happy Friday! Market Opens Today!!
Dear Friends of Farmers,

the Butter List
It’s time to add a pound tub of salted or unsalted Sweet Cream Butter to your order. Our dairy , Southern Oaks Jerseys Dairy sells out quickly. That why you won’t see it on here on a regular basis. It’s 6.00 per pound. Just put a note at the end of your order indicating how many you’d like added to your order!
Have a Blessed weekend!
