It looks like it will be a perfect day for a stroll through the market this week. The weather is cooling down and produce is plentiful! And make sure to mark your calendars for the market’s first annual Harvest Festival! Good food and fun await you on October 25 from 3:30pm to 6:30pm. Check the newsletters, website and Facebook for more information soon!
Parents, we have loads of fun in store for the kids this week. Sandy Miller from Macaroni Kid will join us a fun shaving cream craft and fall leaf activity. Stick around after the Oakley Library 5pm children’s story time for more fun with a bracelet making activity! We meant it when we said we want to be Asheville’s most kid friendly market! And enjoy music this week from Oakley’s own JP Furnas.
Welcome back fall greens! Find many of our vitamin and mineral packed leafy friends this week, such as collards, lettuce, tot soi, mixed baby greens, kale varieties and more. And although the hydroponic green pros at Asheville FRESH Herbs can’t make it this week, you can visit them on ASAP’s Farm Tour for a fun look into urban hydroponic growing with a good cause. Enjoy the bounty of winter squash varieties, green beans, sweet potatoes, and garlic, plus late summer eggplants and peppers. Complete your grocery list with Vandele Farm’s ongoing sale on all beef roasts at $5/lb, or visit Which Came First Farm for savings of 15% off chicken breasts. Satisfy your sweet tooth with Sakshi’s Roasted Nuts, Rachel’s Delectables mini cheesecakes, or check out The Chocolate Lab for local dipped shortbreads, chocolate covered bacon and more.
Back by popular demand, Bonny Bath is offering half pint jars of her wonderfully aromatic bath salt blends. Get them for $8 a jar or 3 for $20. And High Country Nursery is back this week with an array of landscape trees and shrubs.
Come see us today at the market!
