The Weblog

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.

Summer Veggies Increase

“The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.”

Wendell Berry,
The Unsettling of America: Culture and Agriculture

GMO -Free Rabbit Meat
I ordered the weight of my choice exquisite GMO Free Rabbit Meat. I cut it into smaller pieces and marinated it overnight in a lemon ginger garlic scape sauce I concocted and put it on the grill. Wow! Very good! And no it doesn’t taste like chicken. It has a mild flavor only rabbits have. You must try it! And these farmers are Awesome!

Remember we open this evening after 8 pm. We have several farmers on vacation and some of us will add more products after our Friday Markets.

We have a new pick up spot for our Pickens /Easley folks at the YMCA Pickens on Tuesdays 4:15-6:15. So don’t hesitate to Order!
