Tomatoes, Eggplants, Bell Peppers at the Market this week!

This week’s market is sponsored by Eagledove Greenhouse. Check them out at the market this week as they’ll be demonstrating how to raise chickens and ducks in urban spaces! Be sure and visit them just around the corner from Oakley on Swannanoa River road. Interested in your business sponsoring the market, or know somebody who wants to show their support? Check out our sponsorship form for more information, or come see us at the info tent on market day!

If you missed it on the 6PM news, WLOS named steering committee member and market instigator Shelly Webb as the Person of the Week. Unfortunately she’ll be out of town this week, so the autograph requests will have to wait. Congratulations Shelly, you deserve it!

This week at the market, heirloom tomatoes should be coming in, along with eggplants, bell peppers, zucchinis, bush beans, and okra. Whisperholler farms still have some blackberries, peaches, apples, and nectarines. Get them while they last!

Vandele Farms is running a sale on boneless porkchops at $8/lbs, and all special order beef roasts are $5/lbs. Email Kathleen for special orders: to special order any 3 to 4 lbs. roasts: Chuck, Shoulder, Eye of Round and London Broil. She’ll have them ready at market for pickup, if you email her quick!

Rachel’s Delectables is bringing mini cheesecakes for just $2 to satisfy your sweet tooth. Of if you prefer ice cream, the chocolate lab will be bringing some that you can top with their amazing chocolate treats! Look for organic lemonades and herbal ice teas to keep you cool during these hot summer markets!

Don’t forget, our new hours are 3:30-6:30pm! Bring the kids by the kids activity tent for face painting and a market wide scavenger hunt!

Want to show your support for the market, but only have a few dollars to give? Purchase an Oakley Farmers Market bumper sticker, available in the info tent. All proceeds go back to the market to keep the kids activities coming and the market running smoothly. Thanks for your support!

We’re always looking for volunteers to help setup or take down the market, or provide demonstrations of skills and maybe recipes using ingredients found at the market. Interested? Come see us at the info tent! See you tomorrow at the market!
