Gosh, I was so busy preparing for last week that I didn’t post on the homepage. The cooking demo by Jen Pearson of Guadalupe was fabulous. Her eggplant jam was a big hit with folks of all ages. Thanks to Balsam Gardens, Vegenui and Shelton Family Farm for supplying the eggplant. The recipe will soon be available on the recipe box tab and at the market information booth. And thank you to Buy Haywood and MountainWise for all of their hard work putting the demo together.
The Farm Tour was also a success and I look forward to hearing stories of the weekend from both tour goers and farmers/gardeners. I want to give a big shout out to all of the folks who shared their tips and tricks with the community – thank you!
The big news of the week is our SNAP promotion sponsored by Buy Haywood and MountainWise. The first 15 people to swipe their SNAP benefits card for as little as $1 will receive a $5 coupon good for fresh fruits and veggies at the market. Spread the word!
See you Saturday at 9!
