Greetings Friends,

Farming takes more than just planting a seed and reaping the benefits.  There’s a science to it.  Plant biology, soil science, understanding meteorology and environmental science all play major roles.  I’m a science nerd.  I can’t help it.

We have several farmers that are scientists by profession and several farms that are student farms for students studying science.  Come by market this week and look at the produce and meats and consider what it took to produce that product.  Stop by the info table and let the kiddos do a small science experiment to get them excited about science.

This is the last week for our selfie CONTEST!!  So far we only have ONE entry so your chances are pretty good of winning!  Take a “selfie” with your favorite vendor or product AT market and post on your social media page.  Be sure to tag us and put #CDFMselfies in your tag or comment.  Then share the photo with your friends and family, get them to share the photo with theirs.  The photo with the most likes will win a gift basket.  The winner will be chosen August 23rd during Lazy Daze and announced on our social media pages as well as in our newsletter.  Get to it!  It’s selfie time!

Don’t forget that our market will be closed August 23rd for Lazy Daze so you need to plan your shopping accordingly.  We will be open the Tuesday before and after during regular mini-market hours 2 p.m.-6 p.m.
 
It’s going to be a good day at market.  I hope to see you there!

Greetings Friends,

We are celebrating Bike to Market this week.  It’s an impractical day considering the weather, but the point is still there.  Take time to ride a bike or walk to market not only to get the cardio exercise, but also to enjoy the beauty of the world that surrounds you.  Come to market and spend your grocery money not just because it’s trendy or festive, but because locally sourced food holds health benefits.  Cooking with fresh foods engages you more with your food and you’re more likely to eat better.  And let’s face it, it just tastes better.

While you’re at market Saturday, in the rain, you can enjoy music by Paula Snyder.  Grab a hot cup of coffee from Bethesda and cinnamon roll from Custom Confections and the rainy day will make you feel like singing… in the rain… just singing in the rain.

Oh and we’re having a CONTEST for the next two weeks!  Take a “selfie” with your favorite vendor or product AT market and post on your social media page.  Be sure to tag us and put #CDFMselfies in your tag or comment.  Then share the phot with your friends and family, get them to share the photo with theirs.  The photo with the most likes will win a gift basket.  The winner will be chosen August 23rd during Lazy Daze and announced on our social media pages as well as in our newsletter.  Get to it!  It’s selfie time!

Don’t forget that our market will be closed August 23rd for Lazy Daze so you need to plan your shopping accordingly.  We will be open the Tuesday before and after during regular mini-market hours 2 p.m.-6 p.m.

Market News 8/02/14

Greetings Friends,

This week is our 2nd Annual Family Picnic.  When I was a kid we had a family picnic once a year that was a very huge deal.  I grew up in Knoxville, TN, but my family (the Koontz family) is from Dumplin Valley, TN just outside of Sevierville.  Every year, the weekend before Memorial Day my entire family would drive to Dumplin Valley for an event we called decoration.  There, we would “decorate” the graves of our loved one in our family cemetery with flowers.  A church service would be held and then we all drove to Watts Bar damn for a huge picnic and family reunion.

As the years have passed, decoration still takes place but only a few still attend.  There’s no picnic after, and most of the families don’t know each other.  We still have family reunions once every 3 years, but even those are quickly dwindling as we all move away and lost touch with our families and what “family” really means.

At market we want to reach back to our roots, into our history, and bring together the “family” that is our market vendors and patrons.  Many of you have been coming to our market since our beginnings 20 some odd years ago.  Many of you are new to our market, but have made this your Saturday outting.  We watch your kids grow, fed by the local produce we’ve provided.

I’m getting sentimental.  Here is a picture from the last family reunion I went to 2 years ago.  These women are from left to right:  my mother, my grandmother (otherwise known as Nana), my Aunt, my great Aunt, and my cousin.  Also, here is picture of my sweet little family, well my kids:

    

Also at market to celebrate this great day we are going to have a lot of fun things going on.  There will be games like corn hole bubble gum blowing contests, and balloon races and if we can get enough participants at one time, hula hoop challenges and 3 legged races.  Market will be serving FREE hot dogs with cold glasses of lemonade or iced tea.  Andrew Kasab will entertain us with his unique acoustic and harp guitar.  And we will have Magic Mike walking around market performing tricks.  (Hold your dollar bills ladies…) Magic Mike is a magician that performs card tricks and other street magic.  You can learn more about him at his website by clicking here.

Just to get you excited, here are some pictures from last year’s event:

    

Yep, that’s yours truly with the big ol’ baby bump blowing up a balloon.  :)  Remember, we’re open rain or shine so come have some fun and be a part of the family!

It’s going to be a good day at market.  I hope to see you there!

Greetings Friends,

I love ice cream.  It’s absolutely one of my favorite foods.  The beauty of it is you can make ice cream out of just about anything, a little cream, a little sugar and your favorite concoction and voila!  A special little treat.

Because I’m a total nerd (shhh… don’t tell anyone) the Recipe of the Week comes from the awesome website “How Stuff Works” and is 5 minute ice cream.  This site is awesome because it not only gives you ice cream in 5 minutes (what could possibly be better?), but it tells you the science behind ice cream, the history behind ice cream, and lots of other information you were dying to know about ice cream.  The site has lots of information on other stuff too that is just super cool so check it out.

This week we will have ice cream for you to enjoy made from some of the delicious items found at market.  I’ve been searching the internet for unique and interesting recipes and have found what I hope is a few that will tickle your taste buds.  We’ll hand out ice cream cones from 9:30-11:30 while supplies last at the information table.  Come by and see me.

The Motley Tones will be at market this week.  These are some of the most fun performers we have at market.  Bring your sons and daughters to have fun with pirates.  Aaaargh!

We have two guests at market this week.  Two local authors.  Belea T. Keeney is the author of The Tiger Whisperer.  You can read more about Belea T. Keeney and her novel at her website here:  http://www.beleatkeeney.com/ or just come by her table and talk to her while you pick up a book.  With Belea will be Dolly R. Sickles who has written 2 children’s books geared toward the young chapter reader.  You can learn more about Dolly R. Sickles and her books at her website here:  http://dollydozier.wordpress.com/  We hope you will stop by and visit these local authors and support the local writers among us.

It’s going to be a good day at market.  I hope to see you there!

Better Be Ellerbe is a favorite seasonal farmer located in Ellerbe, NC.  They bring some of the best peaches, plums, and apricots to market every year.

Taylor Williams- farmer extraordinaire- is rarely at market as he divides his time between markets getting his helpers set up, but when he is present he is a delight.  He reminds me of a mad scientist with Albert Einstein wild hair.  He’s extremely knowledgeable, not only about farming, but about the science behind farming.
