Sopchoppy Growers Market
February 5, 2011 @ 11:00 am
The Sopchoppy Harvest Growers’ Market will feature more produce this Saturday, February 5, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Following is the list of produce and items that will be offered at market this weekend, for your convenience.Â It is very important to support these farmers so they will return, spread the news to other growers, and help the Sopchoppy market continue to grow and thrive.
At market this Saturday:
Crescent Moon Farm from Sopchoppy, is bringing green garlic, arugula; collards, sprouts, cane syrup and Jack’s infamous bread, (hand ground grains, and organic flours, freshly made Saturday morning!).
The Barnhardt Family from Monticello is bringing:Â Kohlrabi; red mustard, red Russian kale, spinach, turnips; collards; broccoli; curly mustard; cabbage; garlic with tops; rutabagas with tops; oranges; kumquats and Pomelos, including organic produce from South Florida.
Shannon will be back with her home-made pet treats.
This week’s FREE music will be provided by “Twilight” with Paula Fluty, on rhythm guitar and vocals, and Bill Lytle, on harmonica and vocals.Â They specialize in “Classic Country”, with some Blues and Oldies thrown in the mix. Tips are always appreciated.
In addition, Neil Barnhardt will be doing portraits in pastel. Neil was a Disney artist and has done portraits throughout the Big-Bend area at a number of local, regional and statewide events. He says it takes 12 to 15 minutes to complete a portrait and will be charging $20 per portrait. Just in time for Valentine’s Day! (Couples portraits and animals too!)
We sincerely hope this helps you prepare for market. Again, if you know any growers or individuals who have edible plants that have not been sprayed nor synthetically fertilized, 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,Â and in offering customers a chance to buy locally produced food that is not sprayed or altered.
We wish to, also, let you know of a wonderful music event happening at the Monticello Opera House this weekend. The From The Heart Music Hour is back for a third time and is bigger and better than ever! The Music Hour’s poster is provided FTHMHposter27-2
