Phoenix Farms will be a market for a few more weeks with their brightly colored carrots and lots of plant starts!

Market is OPEN June 10th, 8am – 12pm!

Peaches are Back!

It’s beginning to look a lot like summer, especially in the seasonal fruit department! Kalawi Farm is back at market with peaches! Be sure to stop by for your weekly fix of fresh peaches and peach ice cream. Lyon Farms also has blackberries and blueberries available now, and while the season for strawberries is wrapping up, you can still find incredibly sweet, late season strawberries at Hurtgen Meadows, Lyon Farms, Lil’ Farm, and South Wind Produce while they last!


Meet the Market – Red Tail Grains

This week, we highlighted one of our amazing vendors, the folks at Red Tail Grains! Owners Danny Cowan and George Allen shared a little bit about how they got started, why sustainably grown grains are important to them, and who inspires them in the grain grower movement of no-till, organic grains. You can meet Danny and one of their awesome crew members, Izzy Pezzulo at the market on Saturdays! Check out the full Q&A with Red Tail Grains HERE

Red Tail Grains is a farm and mill near Mebane, NC. Started in 2013, they specialize in growing grains and legumes using sustainable practices (no herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, storicides, or synthetic fertilizers). They mill their grains into flours, cornmeal, grits, and mixes; stone-milling fresh for markets each week.
