Good Times Roll
Don't miss this Saturday's Market. ﾠThe flat-pickin', country fiddlin' and toe-tappin' Sugar Run Band is coming to town. ﾠA highlight of this year's Music at the Market, the multi-talented vocal group will flat-foot your socks off! ﾠThanks to a grant from Pocahontas County Dramas, Fairs and Festivals, the music starts around 10 am.
The summer Market is in full swing. ﾠVendors are harvesting cucumbers, tomatoes, green beans and cabbage by the bushel. ﾠFor folks who freeze, can or pickle, now is the time to talk with a farmer and arrange to get the quantity of fresh produce you need.
Vendors also have the first of the potato crop, and the sweet corn is almost ripe. ﾠLois (Dunmore) makes handsewn cooking bags which are a quick and easy way to microwave potatoes or corn. ﾠYou can cook dinner in a few minutes without heating up your kitchen. ﾠOne of the vendors alwaysﾠstocks Lois' pouches.
Long-time friends of the Market have asked about locally grown meat. ﾠThisﾠyear Steve has been selling pork chops and delicious sausage. ﾠLast week ﾠthe Market added beef and lamb from Stompin' Crick Farm. ﾠJoe, Sarah andﾠfamily of Stompin' Creek graze their stock on unspoiled mountain pasturesﾠand their USDA-inspected meat isn't laced with artificial chemicals.
In addition to ground beef, steak and special cuts, Stompin' Crick makesﾠlamb and beef stew. ﾠIf you want to restock your freezer, Stompin' Crick ﾠcan fill your order the next time they process stock. ﾠFor such fineﾠquality meats, you can't beat the prices set by either vendor.
Come on down and see how we grow!
