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.

Big Fish. Healthy Eating!
Yes! The Tilapia are HUGE and ready to eat!
I visited Bo’s Garden Farm and saw the Tilapia for myself. Wow! Get a lot of these fish now and freeze them! This is one of those times when they are abundant and BIG!
I actually was amazed at their size!
I also saw lots of fish fertilizer as fish waste is collected! Hopefully that will get listed! This gardener definitely wants a gallon of that brown gold!

Hello Good People,
Im back from visiting family out west. Local Organic is not only common but actually expected by the locals there . Really awesome !
So I’ve made a decision to move back to be with my family.
I am looking for another market manager who is passionate about getting local organic food to our community. In the meantime , I will keep our market turned OFF until I find that person.
Keep your products listed because it’s so easy to ‘turn on’ this market People can still view products and become a member.
Thanks to you ALL for growing and producing the absolute best food for our communities. I will keep you posted!
Much Love ,
