Sopchoppy Growers’ Market
February 19, 2011 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Sopchoppy Harvest Growers’ Market
The weekly Growers’ Market will feature more produce this Saturday, February 19th, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Following is the list of produce and items that will be offered at market this weekend. It’s very important to support these farmers so they will return, so spread the news to other growers and fresh produce lovers, and help the Sopchoppy market continue to grow and thrive. At market this Saturday:
Crescent Moon Farm, from Sopchoppy; is bringing green garlic, collards, sprouts, cane syrup, a limited amount of broccoli, green and multiplier onions, and Jack’s bread.
The Barnhardt Family, from Monticello in Jefferson County; is once again bringing a variety of locally grown and down-state produce and fruit.
Shannon will have her home-made pet treats.
As promised, Serenity Acres Farm, from Madison County, will be here on Saturday. The following is some excerpts from an email we received from them:
“our goats enjoy their days outside in the sun and fresh air with plenty of grass to munch on. They pass on these wonderful elements in their milk which is sweet and creamy without the “˜goaty’ flavor many expect. As you all know, we preserve the rich flavor of our goats’ milk by not using pasteurization and protect it with strict sanitation measures.
Every week we use our freshest milk and our own chevre culture to make our delicious, smooth chevre cheese. The chevre is then seasoned or left plain (unseasoned and unsalted). Ingredients for seasonings may be garlic & chive, ranch, taco or strawberry, depending on the time of the year. The plain chevre is mild and its taste reflects the sunshine and grass from our farm.
Goat milk is also the main andÂ unique ingredient in our handmade, all natural soap known for its gentle cleansing and soothing properties. We offer many different soap scents with rosemary-clove, cinnamon-coffee, eucalyptus salt-scrub and cucumber-melon mint among some of the favorites.
Our goats often find themselves sharing their pastures with our free-range chickens, which produce wholesome brown eggs.” “Both our small/medium and large/x-large eggs have bright yellow yolks and a delicious flavor.”
“Our milk, cheese, and eggs, which we on the farm enjoy every day, are labeled “Pet food only, not for human consumption” in accordance with Florida State laws.”
And, back by popular demand, free music will be provided by Derek and Laura Graziano; Derek playing the hammer dulcimer and Laura playing the cello. Tips are always appreciated.

On Saturday night, beginning at 7:30 pm, we’ll be hosting the Songwriters’ Listening Room Project. Morty Beckman, Bill Gay, Rick Ott and Paxton Roberts will be playing all original songs. Baked goods and drinks will be offered between sets. We do not serve alcoholic drinks; so If you’re inclined, BYOB. Due to our limited seating capacity, reservations are required.

We sincerely hope this helps you prepare for market and the weekend. Again, if you know any growers or individuals who have edible plants that they do not spray or synthetically fertilize, please tell them about this market and encourage them to participate. We are committed to making the Sopchoppy Harvest Growers’ Market a success, supporting small organic method farmers, and in offering customers a chance to buy locally produced food that is not sprayed or altered.
Thank you for your support!
