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.
Monday Morning Indulgence! Oct. 21
INDULGENCE of the Chocolate kind!
With slightly over 200 farm products to offer you, did you notice CHOCOLATE Layer Cake from Sylvan Falls Mill? If heaven were a cake this would be it!
*Chocolate Brownie Cocoa * from Jumpin Goat Coffee Roasters. This is deeply rich, with just a touch of sweetness that really does live up to it’s reputation of being the BEST! The real test? Add it to water. Result: Wow! It stirs in easily and maintains that deep gourmet chocolate you expect. Added to coffee it will challenge anyone who spends tons of money on mochas. Make your own with this cocoa. It’s really really good!
(I’m on my second cup).
With most markets over our farmers sell their products almost exclusively on the Locally Grown web-sites and CAFE in Clemson. I urge you to support both of these on-line markets (depending on the nearest location to you).
It’s Fun and satisfying to keep your dollars local and your nutrition high!
