The market will be offering some great summer items at the market all summer long! Bonny Bath has a special summer line called Titania’s Garden: A lovely blend of geranium, basil and hyssop; available in bath salts, scrubs and sprays. And you can take care of those annoying bug bites with Buck Naked All Natural’s itchy bug salve. Little ones especially love the relief! Be sure to stay cool while you shop with Sakshi’s fresh squeezed organic lemonade or ice cream from The Chocolate Lab!
Asheville FRESH Herbs has your hydroponically grown lettuce and arugula fresh and ready! When these tender greens start sufferring in the heat of the summer, you can be sure that Asheville FRESH Herbs’ hydroponically grown, freshly harvested (morning of the market, of course!) greens are staying cool. Also check out their beautiful and affordable handcrafted wooden cutting boards. When you purchase one, you are supporting a great cause because Asheville FRESH creates employment opportunities for the developmentally disabled, one of whom creates the cutting boards.
Catch the sale on boneless pork chops from Vandele Farms. One inch thick cuts that are great for grilling, normally $9/lb, on sale for $8/lb!
More veggies are ready for you! Fiddlesticks Farm has three varieties of tomatillos, ready for your favorite salsa verde and marinade recipes.

Need to satisfy a sweet tooth? Visit Fletcher Village Bakery and delight in their new gluten free coconut macaroons with chocolate drizzle. And if you haven’t noticed, the award winning Tupelo Honey Cafe has some awesome threads to add to your wardrobe. A personal favorite is the Abbey Road themed T-shirt with four chickens crossing the street – good stuff!
Remember to bring your kids by the new kid’s activity tent for a DIY bubble wand activity! And Oakley’s own musician Chris Farmer will be performing this week.
