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.
Food for Thought!
It’s a nice inside kind of day. Take some time to see what’s growing and make your orders.
While I am a grower I don’t grow everything ! I feel it’s absolutely critical for farmers to support each other as well. There is so much good food here! Thank you to ALL our Growrrs and Producers!
Today I went to Ingles for bananas and avocados. I was noticing that prices for conventionally grown produce is high! What a shock ! I’m am thankful that the prices here for local chemical free foods are very affordable . It very much validates my passion for letting you , my fellow farmers, supply the food and health products for my family. Thank you.
It’s worth it to order here first. Then visit your farmers at the open markets weekends. There is every reason to sustain yourself and family on llocal farm food all week long all year long !
