Today was another beautiful day at the market. All of the vendors were out in full force today. 🙂 It was a little warmer today but still really nice. Today’s market feature is Turtle Mist Farm. Bob and Ginger Sykes run this farm that is located outside of Franklinton. They have pasture raised laying chickens, turkeys, Muscovy ducks, grass fed and finished sheep and beef cattle. Turtle Mist has a variety of vegetables using sustainable farming practices. Ginger makes jewelry which is available at the market as well. Turtle Mist also has a guesthouse for getaways on the farm. A new item this year is quail eggs and they are delicious! I have not tried the duck eggs yet but I have heard they are also very good. Please stop by the Turtle Mist booth to say hello and see what Bob and Ginger have available.
We have actually experienced a spring this year and it has been really nice. Although, I here this next week is going to be quite summer like….guess we will have to water the gardens more this week. 🙂
Today was another beautiful day at the market with plenty of produce, plants, eggs and other meats, breads, soaps, berries, and much more. This week’s market feature is a sweet treat … Woodleaf Honey. This honey is pure Franklin County honey made on the Woodleaf Plantation using organic beekeeping methods.
I use this honey to sweeten drinks, on toast, and I can turn a simple rice cake into an awesome dessert with this honey and a little cinnamon. My mother has always used the beeswax hand cream not only for dry skin but also to heal any wounds she may have. If you like honey but have not tried Woodleaf’s, stop by their booth and try the free samples they have. I feel confident you will enjoy their honey. They also have candles, hand cream, beeswax bars, and beeswax lotion bars.
Tell them Lori sent you. Happy Marketing!
This week’s market feature is Vollmer Farms. Vollmer Farms is a totally organic Franklin County farm just outside of Bunn. I have always known them for their fabulous strawberries and blue berries but they also have other produce as well. I got asparagus a couple of weeks ago that was delicious.
Today they have strawberries of course, squash, kale, cabbage, onions, and many other beautiful vegetables. Michael is the delightful fellow that will always greet you with a smile at this stand in the Wake Forest Farmers Market.
Come out to say hello to Michael and the many other vendors at the market.
