Did you know that you can pay your membership fee one month at a time? Whenever you’re prompted to pay a $60 yearly membership fee, just email me or add a comment to your order letting us know that you’d prefer to pay for one month (or two or three!). You can adjust the price to $7.50 at checkout during the market!

We love all the treats from Amandaland Farms (like salted caramel sauce, pear chutney, and yummy microgreens) so we featured her on our blog!

Market News

Market weather and harvest are continuing to be wonderful!

Time to stock up on local foods from growers/makers you trust! As always, if you have any questions about ingredients or growing practices/feed and care of animals… Contact the grower! All of us are local, we are community and are happy to answer and be of assistance when possible!

This week Farrar Beef has listed a (Beef) 1/8 Bulk Share (50 lbs) This includes many “stock the freezer” items and they never use steroids, hormones or antibiotics in their cattle! EVER!

Who doesn’t love chocolate?? This week Ann E Mays is cooking up a batch of delicious chocolate chip pecan cookies and chocolate fudge cake! These are age old recipes converted to gluten free. But don’t knock it till you try it! You will never know they are missing the wheat!

Flying S Farms has some Carnival and Acorn Squashes listed!

Smirk will be off this week as they are on the bi-weekly schedule!

Botanical Harmony Farm has listed more NON-GMO feed, free-range duck eggs! Our ducks are housed in our barn with the goats and chickens in the evening, for their protection from coyotes and foxes. During the day, they are free to roam our acreage and have a hand-dug pond (dug by my boys with shovels over a period of several years with plans to enlarge!) in which to frolic to their sweet duck contentment!

When we say free-range, we mean that! They go anywhere the chickens go… front yard to the orchard, back to the pond, to the pasture to visit the goats and muddy their water and then back to the pond again until evening when they expect a treat before bed!

Can we just say that we have had the pleasure of the most amazing host sites? Such community-minded people who are always willing to lend a hand, host an event, help out a charity… Tracy Toy of Quinn’s Mercantile is such an inspiration! She is always ready to help, get involved, promote the downtown beauty of where she lives or help others achieve their goals!
We are proud to be on the porch each week and hope that everyone goes in to support Tracy’s store and help spread the word about what she offers and how amazing she is! We appreciate you so much Tracy!

See ya on the porch!!

Grower Notes


SAINT ANDREWS SOAP COMPANY

“Saint Andrew’s Soap Company was created in the heart of downtown Dothan in 2013 inside Saint Andrews Market. The market was started to gather a collection of local businesses and sellers and the soaps and lotions fit perfectly with the concept. What started as a “trial” turned into a flying off the shelf product that soon became a top seller and a favorite among locals and tourist wanting to bring back a Dothan gift item. 

In 2015, Saint Andrews Market had to close due to a roofing disaster and is still in the process of trying to renovate and reopen. The Saint Andrew’s Soap Company products are now sold at Kitty Couture Boutique and the Market Dothan. Try them! You will be sure to love them. 

The soaps are made using natural products and some are even good with helping with certain skin issues. Thanks for supporting our small business. ”


FOOD FESTIVAL UPDATE

We hope you are getting as excited about the upcoming Fall Farmer’s Market and Food Festival as we are! Every few days another vendor or event is added! We hope you have it on your calendar to attend.

VIP – Our regular Market online schedule with orders and pickups will continue without interruption while the Farmer’s Market and Food Festival take place.

THIS WEEK’S GROWER NOTES

We have the best Growers in the Wiregrass! Please learn more about them on our Grower Page.

BAIN HOME GARDENS: Hello market friends! We hope all of you came away safe and sound thru the weather last week. Besides an issue with siding, we are all clear here at Bain Home Gardens.  We did however lose our volunteer watermelon vines. We are not quite sure how to feel about that since we didn’t officially plant them anyway. We went ahead and pulled the melons from the vine and uprooted the vines. The vines of course went to the compost but as you can see the melons didn’t quite mature. We sampled one yesterday and it was surprisingly SWEET! The rest will be sampled as well. Tasty ones will be diced, seeded, then frozen for smoothies. Yummy!


Perhaps it was the storms or the season either way our family has suffered some allergy issues. Our usual routine is local honey with lemon in tea as a quick remedy. So to the pantry we went only to find just a teaspoon of honey in our jar from Mary Bees! This was very disappointing. I’m personally looking forward to the market opening to grab another jar. Have you tried them out? Heads up! It’s allergy season for the Wiregrass area. Please do not get caught off guard like we did.

In other news, we have mounting excitement about upcoming harvests! With weather being such a determining factor, admittedly there is a bit of nervous energy too. We are working on channeling that into a positive enthusiastic vibe. We will
have new produce coming just in time for the fall market. For the most current updates like and follow our page on Facebook, @bainhomegrowngoodness. Keep an eye on us as we continually endeavor to bring quality produce from our family to yours!

HAWKINS HOMESTEAD FARM: We are very happy and thankful that our family and our animals all made it safely through Hurricane Irma. We had some tree limbs fall and our plants definitely took a beating but thankfully no real damage was done. Hopefully all of you were safe as well. We are still praying for and will continue to pray for all those affected by not only this storm, but Harvey, and those affected by the earthquake in Mexico. So many have lost so much and sometimes it’s easy to forget when you’re not directly affected.

Sad to say we lost our sweet potato plants. With all the rain, most were mush and some were stunted. Sometimes when things look good above ground, you never know what’s happening below. We will try again next year.

Fall planting has started late for us but we have started organic broccoli, spinach, collards, and kale!

Update: If all goes well, we should expect some chicks this weekend! We will be sure to let you know how the hatch went.

Horton’s Farm Instead of driving to Orlando on Saturday, Sept 9 to visit the new grand-baby like originally planned we spent the day preparing for the arrival of Irma. The biggest job of the day was to tackle the Leaning Tower of Beeza. The Leaning Tower is/was one of my strongest hives and gradually started leaning due to the weight of the honey my bees stored upstairs! Needless to say, the idea of a hurricane blowing that thing over, scattering my sweet bees and ruining all that honey . . . well, that just wasn’t going to happen!


The long and short of it is that the Leaning Tower got moved to a new more secure foundation with a new bottom board and sturdier boxes. It’s new name is the Beeluxe Condo. Best of all, we got 3 boxes of honey from it to extract. As in . . during the storm. That’s right, Ros spent Monday extracting honey old school with no electricity. Besides the sticky sweet deliciousness and keeping my mind off family in Florida and trying not to thing about what was going on outdoors, we were blessed with more COMB HONEY than we’ve ever produced here thanks to those hardworking little girls. We hope you enjoy it!

Farm News of the Week





Michael Raines of Frontier Family Farm in Altamont has a problem: some empty greenhouse space for which he has no immediate plans. He would like to know what you suggest he grow in this open space this winter. He has some things already started, but has room for more. Please come to market on Thursday and give your suggestions to Michael.






Diana from Cindy’s Suds in Manchester writes:
Years ago, my sister, Cindy, decided to make her own laundry soap because she wasn’t interested in all the “smells and bells” of most commercial laundry detergent. She tried several recipes and found the one she liked the best. She would make it for herself and our parents. My dad started calling it “Cindy Suds” in her honor. Recently, I started to make it using her favorite recipe. Cindy Suds is bottled in clean, reused, half gallon and gallon plastic containers. For more information, please check out Cindy Suds on the market under “Home & Garden Supplies,” send an e-mail to CindyLaundrySuds@gmail.com, or call (931) 570-1240. Trial sizes of Cindy Suds will be available for one dollar at market pick-up this Thursday. Hope to see you there!!

Amy from Solace Farm in Coalmont writes:
I’ve added a shampoo bar, a new formula that I am really loving. I’ve listed a feminine fragrance, with a unisex version coming as soon as it finishes curing. I’ve also added some handmade reusable, recycled shopping bags made from feed sacks. These are super-sturdy and attractive, and they’re in the Household Items under Handmade Items.
