Pies: Apple, Pumpkin, Sour Cream Apple, and Apple/Cranberry: $16 each

Dinner Rolls: $4.25/dozen

Gluten Free Brioche Rolls: $1.25 each. These are muffin size, not dinner roll size.

Conway, AR:  Rent-a-Dehydrator! Opening Bell: Carrots, Garlic Plants, Honey, Kale!


Good afternoon!

This is the last market before Thanksgiving. We will not have a market on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Be sure to stock up on all of your holiday favorites early before they are sold out.

Have you ever wanted to dehydrate some of the wonderful fruits and vegetables available at CLG, but didn’t have a dehydrator? Well, now you can rent a dehydrator from CLG. Pick it up on Friday, use it all week, and return it to the next market. This is a 4-tray American harvest food dehydrator and jerky maker. Comes with instruction manual and recipe guide. If someone would like to get it this Friday and keep it until the first market in December, just text me and I will hold it for you. You can make a lot of beef jerky much cheaper than in the stores. Has a special tray for making fruit leather (fruit roll-ups). Only $4 per week.

Cedar Rock Ridge now has their 2017 Faulkner County Fair Best of Show Award-winning Garlic listed for only $1 per plant. Ready to transplant into your garden now!

Kale, Lettuce, Spinach, Green Tomatoes, Carrots, Eggs, Radishes, etc. We are pleased to have Rattle’s Garden listing this week. Tara has a first class operation in Vilonia and produces excellent vegetables.

Be sure to SEARCH for your favorite items using the search field. Over 700 items available now!

Most items are listed by 6pm Sunday, but check back again before the market closes Tuesday night to see if any other items are ready to be harvested for you! Eat fresh! Eat local! Eat for better health!

And save your eggshells throughout the week for the laying hens! :-)

The market is now OPEN for orders. Click here to start shopping:

ALFN Local Food Club:  Thanksgiving Market Is Open!


Happy Sunday everyone!

The Market is open. We are officially in Thanksgiving Market week – this Saturday and next Monday are your last opportunities to pick up before next Thursday! Time to stock up on pies, bread, meat, fresh produce, and anything else you need to fill up your Thanksgiving table.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, we couldn’t run this market without the hard work of our fantastic volunteers. We will be taking some time over the next week to highlight our volunteers and thank them for their service. If you have a compliment for our volunteers please take a moment to send me an email so that I can compile our customers’ gratitude! And of course, the next time you’re at the market please let them know how much you appreciate them spending their Saturday mornings with us!

Interested in volunteering yourself? You can earn credit and membership for your account by signing up to volunteer with us this weekend.

Follow us on Facebook for more offers and events, or visit our website to learn more about our organization.

Independence,VA:  Think Thanksgiving!


Good morning!

I hope everyone is managing to stay warm and cozy amidst this cold and dreary weekend! If you like to plan ahead, go ahead and secure some of your Thanksgiving goods from the Market this week! Sweet potatoes, garlic, and butternut squash, all grown locally by your friends and neighbors, would make a great addition to your table this year! If you haven’t checked our Baked Goods section lately, then be sure to when you have a chance. We have a really great variety that is sure to please everyone’s sweet tooth! Save some time and continue to grow your local economy by letting our awesome vendors do some of the baking for you this year!

We’d like to welcome back Feed Me Ma to the Market. With a variety of gluten free baked goods and holiday garlands, they make a great addition to our Market!

To Shop: Independence Farmers Market.

Market News

Good morning everyone!

Your market is now open for orders through tomorrow night at 10 pm.

New for this week:

Thanksgiving Week, which is NEXT week?!! How?, we will move pickup to TUESDAY at the same time, same place!
Also, we apologize for the inconvenience of having no turkeys this year. Next year’s producers have been secured and we will be ready for you!

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse will run the 10% discount on Christmas decorations just till Thanksgiving, so get your order in now:

Kissing ball (14" diameter) – retail $35, 10% discount till Nov 21 – $31.50

Wreath (about 24") – retail $27.00, 10% discount till Nov 21 – $24.00

Basket centerpiece (about 10" diameter) – retail $20.00, 10% discount till Nov 21 – $18.00

All are made with natural greens of various sorts, pine cones, and grasses, all gathered from our property or gleaned from a nearby Christmas tree farm. They are trimmed with bright red berries and a pretty red ribbon bow.

Why pre-order? Obviously, the 10% discount is nice. Besides that, these will be limited in quantity. Pre-orders are guaranteed to be filled, but I don’t know how many extras there will be for ordering after Thanksgiving.

Please comment on the order preferred delivery date, after Nov 23.

Also I’ve added some larger Christmas cacti in several colors, with wrapped pots, perfect as table centerpiece or in a sunny south-facing window. Although they’re called “Christmas” cacti, they are budded now and will be in bloom for Thanksgiving, and for several weeks thereafter.

Urban Sprout will be joining us, on the porch, for samples of new products!

Flying S Farms has 2 gorgeous varieties of cauliflower ready for you: Snowball White and Cheddar/Orange. Gorgeous additions to your appetizers, baked dishes and soups! Cauliflower is a great meat substitute and more. Absolutely underrated vegetable!

Start thinking about those Locally Grown/Made Christmas gifts! Jams, Pickles, Market Gift Certificates, Soaps, Packaged foods, breads and so much more make the BEST and so very appreciated hostess and holiday gifts! Useful, practical and incredible!

See ya on the porch!!

The Wednesday Market:  Ordering is Open; Special Thanksgiving Week Pick Up Times


Good morning.

The Wednesday Market is open for orders. Please place your order by 10 p.m. Monday. Orders are ready for pick up between 3 and 6 p.m. Wednesday. See the website for this week’s product listings. Here is the link: https://wednesdaymarket.locallygrown.net/market

Thank you to all of the farmers and customers who turned out last week for the Market’s Taste of Thanksgiving! The weather held, and we deem the event successful! In fact, we think we will plan similar events throughout the calendar next year, during different seasons, so that our customers have the opportunity to meet our producers and learn about all of the items our Market has to offer.

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is week after next? It seems that this year has flown by! Please note that we are moving our pick up date backwards one day, to Tuesday, November 21, from 3 to 6 p.m. Doing so will give our managers the ability to spend Wednesday preparing their own families’ Thanksgiving celebrations.

Thank you for supporting locally grown agriculture and for buying locally. Have a good Sunday, and we’ll see you at the Market.

Thanks,

Beverly
