What’s At The Market This Week- April 30, 2014

Well the weather so far this week has spared us from all the storms that were (are) expected. It makes you draw up every time they mention hail in the forecast when you have a greenhouse full of plants. That’s why they call it farming though, we take the bad with the good.

When we started this adventure we never wanted to be a large farm, We wanted to be a Good farm. We want you to be able to eat good safe food just like our grandparents did. We still do a lot of things that are time consuming even though they make things to do it quicker. When we drop each seed in the ground by hand we know exactly where it came from and where it’s going. We even say a prayer for God to bless it ! So you see when we say “Growing Good Food For Good People” – We really mean it !

So this week at the Market’s we will have – swiss chard, lettuce, spinach, radishes, zucchini squash, spring onions, mustard greens, a little broccoli and this is going to be the last week for asparagus.

So come out early for best selections. Let’s hope for more sunshine to brighten things up. As always we appreciate your support !

Thursday’s Market- Montgomery Co Farmers Market, Downtown Troy- 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Saturday Market- Stanley Co Farmers Market, Downtown Albemarle (old train depot) 8 a.m. to 12 Noon.

What’s At The Market This Week- April 23, 2014

As the Market season begins for us we are going to do our best to post here on our blog and on Facebook each Wednesday what will be at the market. Our Montgomery County market in Troy is on Thursday’s from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the public parking lot in downtown Troy. This market is a growers only market so what you buy comes straight off the local farms.

Our Saturday Market is the Stanley County Farmers Market and it is located in downtown Albemarle at the old Train station. This market is from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon each Saturday.

So each week check in here and follow us on Facebook for what will be at the Market’s for that week.

Our High Tunnel tomatoes are really blooming now and hopefully before long they will be hanging full of tomatoes. We have started planting our field crops but are still seeing some cold nights so it will probably be next week before we set out our tomato & pepper crops.

Our Zucchini squash have been great so far and it looks like we will have several for the market this week.
