New Year, New Discoveries!
There is always something new – or new to us – to discover at market, and the new year is a great time to keep things fresh by trying something new every week! This week, we picked up a bag of Haw River Mushrooms’ Lions Mane Coffee which is a ground coffee bean and lions mane mushroom combination for your morning cup. We loved it!
Thankful for the Sunshine
Rain or shine, you’ll always find us at market! But this week, we are especially thankful our farmers received a bit of a break from freezing temperatures and some sun for their plants and animals. Despite December’s freeze, they rocked their vendor table displays last week with an incredible variety of greenhouse tomatoes, cold-hardy fennel, sweet peppers, gorgeous cabbage, and lots of those colorful root vegetables we love to brighten up winter meals with – red and golden beets, rainbow carrots, watermelon radishes, purple and orange sweet potatoes, and lots more. Now is the time to check out the healthy and hearty proteins from By the Brook Tempeh, Fickle Creek Farm, Chapel Hill Farm, Meadow Lane Farm, Misty Morning Ranch, Stoney Mountain Farm, and more. Last week, Chapel Hill Creamery had a wonderful display of their pastured meats to pair with your winter collard greens. Many vendors are accepting pre-orders today for pick up and market, and you can peruse their products online from the comfort of your home before swinging by market on Saturday for pick up!
