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.
Good day to you fellow local food eaters!
We are promised a bit a respite from the cold this afternoon. Get out and starts a few seeds that you can bring inside when the cold returns. I am happy to see Swiss Chard peaking up through the earth . Wild Earth Gardens & Herbals has some rare Tomato seeds, ‘Indigo Rose’, an OSU creation. Very prolific low acid sweet fruits . And ‘Heirloom Seminole Pumpkins’. These are meaty pumpkins meant for good eating ! Rich deep pumpkin flavor.
Veggie starts will soon be here so start thinking about what you want in your garden.
We are lean on veggies right now! Gives our dairy and meat farmers an opportunity to shine!
Wild Earth Gardens & Herbals is offering Winter Collards so get yourself some.
It’s still a coffee cocoa type of morning so be sure to check out our Gourmet Mountain Roasted Coffee and Cocoa from Jumpin Goats Coffee Roasters just over the line in NE Georgia Mountains.
Enjoy the day and Eat Well!
Market is Open till Monday 4pm
