Foothills Market:  The Market is Open, November 11

Foothills Market is getting a late start today because the market manager was at a celebration for Veterans’ Day this afternoon. We appreciate our veterans and their service for the country!

Place your order between now and Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. We’ll have your items ready for pickup between 4:30-5:30 p.m. Thursday.

Eat something fresh this week!

Fresh Harvest, LLC:  Fresh Harvest for November 11th

Market News


We’ve got tons of great stuff this week – lots of greens and salad stuff! So eat your veggies! The freeze has impacted some of the crops, and has made lots of work for the farmers. With hoophouses and row covers, we protected the crops as best we could from cold damage.

The time change means we will be up under the porch until Spring! We are so grateful that Trinity Presbyterian Church allows us this space to do deliveries – sheltered from rain and wind and with lights for those now dark afternoon!

We will not be delivering Thanksgiving week. There are some options for getting Thanksgiving goodies, however! You can pre-order turkeys from Wedge Oak Farm on our website and pay your deposit, but will need to pick those turkeys up at Richland Park Farmer’s Market on Saturday before. You can read more about this on the Market Page.
You can also check out the Thanksgiving Menu at Dozen Bakery. They have a great selection of pies, breads, and savory sides to get you through! You need to order through them and pick up at their location :

Stay tuned from special items from Bear Creek Farm that you can order the week before and look to The Bloomy Rind as well for your party cheese and charcuterie plates!

Don’t forget we will have lots of sweet potatoes, winter squash, and other vegetables that you can stock up on ahead of time for that holiday week.

You have until Tuesday night to place your order!

Thanks for your support, and we will see you on Wednesday!

Dawson Local Harvest:  BEEF & CHICKEN Back on The Market!

Dawson Local Harvest for Nov. 16th

BEEF & CHICKEN Back on The Market!


JUST IN TIME For Thanksgiving and the Holidays, too! BACK IN TIME FARM has their superb Certified Naturally Grown pastured Chicken available for sale now. Chickens are grass-fed, supplemental feed is organic, and no antibiotics are used for the purest, most-natural Chicken you can get! Chicken Breasts, Breakfast Sausage, Livers, and Feet (essential for great broth) are some of what is on the Menu.

And How About Steaks this weekend or a nice pot roast? COPPERHEAD HOMESTEAD has also returned to The Market this week with these and more natural pasture-fed Beef including Ground Beef, Brisket, Short Ribs, and T-bones, as well as several combination Packages for the busy family. You’ll find all the Chicken and Beef listed in the Meats, free-range pastured section.

NEW VEGETABLES THIS WEEK: We see a couple of new Vegetables for this week’s Market. First up, Turnip Greens, stir-fried with garlic and oil (healthy version), or slow-cooked for hours with a smoked turkey leg a la Paula Deen (the way I like ’em). Next, Pak Choi, the wonderful Asian veggie perfect for stir-fry Chicken & Beef, leaves and stalks in soups, and leaves added to salads for a sweet & crunchy texture. Also, Purple-Top Turnips can be boiled with the greens, or the bulbs sliced for a touch of crunch and spice in a salad. Look in Vegetables for availabilities this week.

THANKSGIVING PRE-MARKET: The Dawson Local Harvest will have a Thanksgiving Pre-Market on Tuesday, Nov. 20th, 2 days before Thanksgiving. This is a great time to order all the Breads, Desserts, Dips, and Vegetables you’ll want for the Holidays. Ordering will start as usual Sunday night, Nov. 18th at 8pm, but will close a day earlier on Monday night, 11 pm, with orders available for pickup Tuesday the 20th 3-6 pm.

PLEASE NOTE: Because of scheduling difficulties, PLEASE ORDER ALL BEEF & CHICKEN FOR THE HOLIDAYS in THIS WEEK’S MARKET for pickup THIS FRIDAY. Sorry, that’s the only way it will be possible.


REMEMBER! You can now order until Tuesday night at 9 pm. Pick up your order at Leilani’s Gardens Friday afternoons from 4 to 6 pm.

The Wednesday Market:  Come In from the Cold and Place Your Order!

Good afternoon.

The Wednesday Market is open for orders. Please place your order by 10 p.m. Monday. Orders are ready for pick up between 3 and 6 p.m. Wednesday. Check the website for this week’s product listings. Here is the link:

Freezing, or near-freezing, temperatures are predicted overnight. Be sure to bring your tender plants indoors, and cover ones that you are not able to move inside. I have one last bloom on my beloved hydrangea, a wistful memory of sunny summer days. Now is the season for cloudy, rainy, and cold. We have our winter coats, hats, and gloves at the ready at my house. Soon enough, my kitchen will be full of warm, spicy and earthy aromas as I start preparations for the Thanksgiving meal.

May this Sunday find you in a warm and cozy place, with your favorite dog or cat curled up at your feet, and a steaming mug of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate to take off the chill.

Have a great day, and we’ll see you at the Market.
