We missed the market this last weekend!! Be sure to check out the Cullowhee Market Tuesday evenings beginning at 4 at the corner of 107 and Forest Hills if you need to make up for lost veggies.

This Saturday be sure to visit as the wood fired pizza oven will be cooking up pizzas during the market. Mmmmmhmmmm smells delicious already!

Mid August

I can hardly believe that it is already the middle of August! All sorts of veggies can be found at the Market these days, I even spied a pile of pumpkins last week!  Backwoods Bakery will be back at the market, however please note that it will be the last week for at least a month for Walter and Joanne of Pineapple Sage Herb Farm. Make sure to purchase any herbs and spices that you need for the coming month this weekend, and don’t forget to pet the cat! JIm Sellers will be there with some early apples.
