So we had a wonderful first day at the market on Tuedsay. Thanks to everyone who came out on such a beautiful day to support us! We had some truly beautiful greens.
Fox8 came to do a piece about a new service at the market, explained below. Check out this link for more, and for a glimpse of Sugar Creek Farm at the market!
"Besides offering completely local and environmentally-friendly food, the market is accepting federal Electronic Benefits Transfer cards. Those are used by people who normally don't have access to or can't afford fresh food.
"We are going to match those benefits so anybody who comes and uses their card and says they want a dollar's worth off their card, they get $2 to go spend at the market," said Matthew Mayers with the Cobblestone Farmers Market."
Thanks again to everyone that stopped by - come see us next week, and at the Dixie Classic Market on Sat., April 30th!
Hi! I can't believe it's already April, but here we are. We are so excited for this growing season, because there have been a lot of changes at the farm over the winter. Most importantly, we now have a Farm Manager! Visit our website (www.sugarcreek-farm.com) to learn more about Natalie Sevin. We are so lucky to have her. Check out the April/May issue of FoCoWoJo (Forsyth County Women's Journal) to learn even more! You might recognize Natalie on the cover....
We also now have a greenhouse AND a big ole hoop house! So some of our tomatoes are already in the ground and will be ready in June. Thanks to Natalie, we are growing a lot more produce this year so our market tables will be full of all kinds of new things - come visit us at either the Cobblestone Market or the Dixie Classic Fairgrounds market.
This week at the markets you'll find mesclun mix, arugula, radishes, joi choi, spinach, kale, collards and (hopefully) head lettuce!
Hope to see you soon, thanks for visiting our blog.
