Weekly Happenings

Coming Up This Saturday November 9, 2019

 

Fill Your Baskets With Local Abundance!

 

As we settle into Autumn's rhythm, look out for more of your cool season favorites including broccoli, carrots, kale, collards, squash, radishes, sweet potatoes.  Spice up your dishes with turmeric and baby ginger.  Since all produce is locally grown and freshly picked, there's always something new to look forward to.  

 

Thanks to cooler temperatures, Pink Lady apples are finally here!  Your patience is rewarded with the perfect blend of sweet and tart in one crisp bite.  This long-keeping variety is very popular, so get in line early.

 

Don't let the cold keep you away, just grab a jacket and head on down to see us.  There'll be sunshine and smiling faces ready to greet you as you savor a hot gourmet coffee and delectable treat.  Go on, seek out your happy place at MCFM this Saturday!

DID WE MENTION APPLES?

PINK LADIES HAVE ARRIVED!!!  This very popular, crisp apple has the perfect balance of sweet and tart and, of course, has a notable pink blush.  We'll also have Fuji, Goldrush and Winesap.  Our fundraiser tent located in the TRADITIONAL MARKET NEXT TO THE COMMUNITY HOUSE

 

We sincerely thank you for your continued support, because every bag of apples you buy helps to raise funds for our operating budget.  We want to bring an in-demand product to our customers while supporting a local farmer (Davis & Son Orchards in Lincolnton) who is unable to attend due to heavy on-farm sales.

Did You Know...?

 

...Chefs are a catalyst for the market's success and in educating the public about the importance of local foods and supporting local farms

 

"The chefs who shop at our market and buy from local farmers have been a principal force in driving the local foods movement," says grower Sam Koenigsberg of New Town Farms. "They have made the market what it is today and have helped the market continue to grow. They have that platform - through a plate of good food - to educate people. That plate of local food is the window back to the farm. Chefs have an enormous role in advancing the market and making more local food available for you, the consumer."  

... that the musicians who play so beautifully volunteer their time and talents?

 

We are so grateful for the enjoyment their music brings.
