Since February is Black History Month, we want to take this time to highlight our Black-owned businesses. Pride Road, one of our early vendors, is a family- and veteran-owned business that produces all natural, locally grown hibiscus-based products. Most of our regular customers know about their delicious sodas and teas, but we also carry their chutney, jelly and dried teas whenever we can get them. Their products are becoming so well known that we’re not always able to order them!
This Saturday we'll be offering their sodas at $1.90 a bottle instead of the usual price of $2.50.
We've got lovely berries (blueberry and strawberries), along with our usual bananas, apples, lemons, limes, and mandarins.
For this week's Market we'll have kale, collards, potatoes (sweet and Russet), onions, Brussel sprouts, asparagus and lots more!
If you like home-baked breads, cookies and other sweets, we have what you'll be wanting. From Flour + Time (a local vegan bakery) we'll have bread, muffins and cookies. And from Stone Mountain's very own Village Corner German Restaurant and Bakery we'll have bread, cookies and a couple of new baked goods.
Dave's jams, jellies, honey, hot sauce, chow-chow and salsa; Beast Little Cannery pickles; B&C Farms salsa and jalapeño pepper jelly; and Pecan Nation pecans
South Georgia strawberries will be arriving in a couple of weeks. Make sure to stop in when they arrive as they don't last long!
Want to help eliminate food waste beyond your own kitchen? Help eliminate grocery store food waste by purchasing "ugly" fruits and vegetables. Grab the crooked carrots. If you love banana bread and have time to bake, buy some browning bananas. Consider the less pretty, lumpy, not-so-glossy fruits and veggies, and don't leave them at the store to rot!
Read and understand all the ingredients and steps of the recipe BEFORE you begin any prep or dive straight into cooking. You don't want to miss a crucial step or ingredient that would take the dish from okay to AWESOME!
