News from the Market August!

sunflowersThe market is open and full of fresh local produce!

The First Annual Weaverville Tailgate  Market  Dinner was great! We want to thank-you for joining us. We enjoyed sharing the evening with you! Details to be announced soon for our next Market dinner.

The market does a paragraph or two in the newsletter that goes out in Weaverville. I will post it here monthly for non-Weaverville residence to read.

Greetings from the Weaverville Tailgate Market Vendors!

We look forward to seeing more of you this month at the market every Wednesday, 2:30-6:30pm at the Community Center parking lot on the hill above Lake Louise and Park.  We will celebrate this month by bringing you more variety of vegetables, herbs, and fruits as they have more favorable weather to mature and ripen in; as well as, all the other fantastic products and crafts that you can count on each week.  Also, we have a Special Event planned for the end of the month(details below).

The weather is such a complicated factor into what the produce farmers can have ready and available to bring to market but rest assured they work very hard to bring you all that they can.  The produce that should be available for your menu planning this month are: lettuces, lettuce mixes, arugala, greens, spinach, kale, swiss chard, collards, escarole, watercress, ramps, peas, pea shoots, radishes, beets, turnips, carrots, mushrooms, green onions, and strawberries! Most of these are grown using organic or natural methods in order to keep food safe and fresh.

Using many of those same methods, other producers bring eggs, chicken, lamb, pork, beef, and seafood to compliment your plate of freshly grown local food.  This market also carries a large variety of value added products from vendors that include homemade/home crafted  products such as: breads, cookies, pies, desserts, fudge and candies, jams and jellies, sauces and pickles, coffee and tea, ice cream, goat, cow, and sheep cheeses, goat milk for pet food,  and other prepared foods -Mexican.

To complete this unique “One Stop Shopping” opportunity, we have a wide assortment of hand crafted items for your family or for gift giving: cut flowers, pet treats and goodies, hand sewn items, jewelry, herbal products, and soap/skin care products.

For your added convenience, you can swipe your credit card and get “Market Bucks” to use instead of cash.  We look forward to seeing you at the Market!
