Foothills Market:  The Market is Open!

Human beings are not the only creatures who are glad to see the spring-like weather – the hens and ducks are as well! That means eggs are back on Foothills Market!

We have both chicken and duck eggs available on the market this week. Thanks to the longer days, our hens back to laying after taking most of the winter off. If you’ve had farm-fresh eggs, you know store eggs can’t compare. Our growers’ hens are free-range, which means their varied diet leads to that dark orange yolk that is full of nutrients. If you’ve never tried duck eggs, this might be a good opportunity – they have bigger yolks and a creamy texture that takes baked goods to the next level (and makes a great fried egg sandwich)!

Browse the market between now and Wednesday at 5:00 p.m., being sure to click the “Place your order” button. We’ll have your order ready for pickup on Thursday afternoon.

Eat something fresh this week!

Russellville Community Market:  3/5/23 closing

Does this weekend’s beautiful weather have you in the mood to grill? Find your favorite steaks from R&D, Bluff Top or Michael’s Garden! Get some delicious Polish Sausage, Bratwurst or premium hamburger patties from Hoien Farms! If you feel like gardening, you can get ready for planting with Rabbit Manure from Meadowlark, Goat Litter from Bluff Top or Mealworm Frass from Sulphur Springs Truck Patch! Need eggs? The RCM growers are stocked up and ready to provide fresher, higher quality and often more affordable eggs than the big grocery stores! We would like to welcome Ford Farms this week; check out their eggs! Pine Ridge Gardens still has some Swiss Chard and Tat Soi available and Shoal Creek Farms has microgreens that would be delicious on a freshly grilled hamburger! Meadowlark has aged and Apple Smoked Cheddar plus fresh Ricotta and Mediterranean Herb cheese as well as four flavors of ice cream! Get your Isn’t She Sweet baked goods fix this week with blueberry muffins, cozy cookies and more! RCM has premium baked goods to complement every meal, and don’t forget the local honey or Jams and Jellies to accompany them! Have you tried Orange Ginger Marmalade from Pleasant View?

Quarter Springs Farm: Spring has almost sprung and our hens are working overtime to lay lots of healthy and delicious eggs. We still have a selection of lamb cuts available, and a very limited selection of pasture-raised whole chickens and breasts. Pasture raised chicken is better for the bird, your body and the planet. But most importantly, it tastes amazing. As usual, we have a scintillating selection of savory soaps and shampoo bars, all made with skin softening goat milk.

NashPhilly: Will return next week.

Billie Rose Bread & Butter: offering a variety of delicious made-from-scratch items to the local community. A unique mix of items will be curated, with a strong focus on baked goods and delicious fruit butters and jams. From southern staples like cornbread and biscuits, to New York style bagels, to special diet accommodations like vegan breads and wheat-free dog treats, Billie Rose hopes to become a new craving!

Oakview Farm: We are taking a few weeks off and will be back mid March.

Thweatt Things: I am making fabric Easter baskets for gathering eggs or for brightening your home decor for the holiday. These roomy baskets have a 6” base and are approximately 5 1/2” high. The handle is buttoned on and can be taken off if desired. They are constructed from fabric and soft foam. Each one is unique. Printed Design may vary.

Pinky’s Micros: Microgreens and sprouts are extremely dense in vital enzymes, minerals and vitamins and chlorophyll. There aren’t many foods you could eat that are fresher. Put on your sandwhich, top your salads with them or use in place of lettuce.

This week: Seasonal Chef’s Blend; this is our specialty customized microgreen blend! Every season we’ll be creating new blends represent each season. Our Winter Blend has Romaine, Celery, Kale Confetti and Red Bull Beets. Along with Pea, Radish, Cinnamon Basil, Broccoli, Basic salad Mix and Sunflower.

Enjoy a dazzling array of new flavors. Plants are at their absolute peak of flavor intensity at this stage of life.

Shroomegy Gourmet Mushrooms: It’s been a busy few weeks here at Shroomegy. We are working hard to bring you great fresh mushrooms! I have been using Lion’s Mane powder in my morning coffee in the ratio of 3 parts coffee to 1 part mushroom powder to up my antioxidants. I feel great! We are also working on a new mushroom jerky recipe with oyster mushrooms. I will be sure to add it to the recipes when I get it just right.

RC Farm: Enjoy our large selection of produce grown in our greenhouse and/or hydroponically. We have added several other items to our inventory. Fried pies, cakes, pies and breads.

Rus-T-Acres: Our Chickens have finally started laying again! This winter has been ruff on our feather ‘friends’. Be sure to checkout our several delicious selections of Beef and Pork.

Flying S Farms: Let’s talk Chicken Eggs, they are picking up their production! We can now offer by the dozen or a bundle of 3 dozen!. Friendship and Sour Dough Breads and Delicious Biscuits are freshly baked day of delivery! We are having a SALE…purchase a Pumpkin Butter and get one free!! Still available is our delicious Apple Butter and Fig Jam from local Turkey Fig Tree are great anytime of the year. Apple Jamely (almost a jelly but thick like a jam) HOT Jams – Seriously Hot Strawberry and Habanero Peach are a hit. Warm some up and put over cream cheese and serve with crackers – yummy!

C&M Valley Farm: Welcome back, we have few plants available and more to come. This week Ghost Succulent, Hens and Chick succulent, very low maintenance and beautiful indoors or out. Also Ruby Necklace hang plant.

Between cold and dreary skies it seems like the winter was long, but something in Tractor Supply last week made my heart happy:

Chick display

The tanks had everything but the chicks, probably a good thing as I would have taken at bunch home with no preparation. We all know impulse buying is dangerous, but in the case of chicks there are lives at stake!

But we are getting chicks, from a reputable hatchery no less! And if the summer of 2023 goes anything like the summer of 2021 we’ll continue to feast on glassed eggs during the winter months.

Water glassed eggs

Speaking of glassed eggs, there are rumors that some of our vendors may start listing them. If you’re not familiar with this very old practice this is a GREAT article.

Rather than provide inspirational or educational information this week we’re just going to have fun and enjoy some signs of the season.

March Ordering Schedule
Order March 4 – 7 for pickup Friday, March 10
Order March 18 – 21 for pickup Friday, March 24
Weekly Orders Resume March 25

D’S JELLIES: Our Mayhaw Trees have been in full bloom and the honey Bees found them. We now have lots of Mayhaw berries and we’re hopeful a late freeze won’t get our berries this year. As jelly jars become available,  I am adding them to my supply. I hope to be making D’s Mayhaw Jelly in May, D’s BlackBerry Jelly in June, and D’s Hot Pepper Jelly in July.  D’s Farmhouse Kitchen Recipes is a good one to add to your collection of Cookbooks. It’s a good one for yourself or for a gift for a friend. Thank you so much for your continued support!

Mahaw in Bloom

We look forward to seeing you next Friday at one of our pickup locations. Thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible!
