Fresh & Local:
Hello gardeners! Whether you kept up your garden through the summer or you’re starting fresh this fall, now is the time to start planning your fall garden. After the heat of summer, fall weather brings a beautiful season to be outside growing with a plethora of fall crops to choose from. Our markets are a great place to pick up locally grown seedlings alongside local gardening advice from our knowledgeable vendors.
For your seedling needs, our vendors will be offering a selection heavy in varieties of greens and herbs. Greens such as collards, mustards, lettuces, arugula and kale will flourish in this season. Now is also an opportune moment to re-stock your herb garden with fresh varieties of your favorite herbs. We are excited to see old standards and new varieties from all our plant vendors.
On Tuesdays, check out Jim Mizell’s beautiful spread of plants. He offers a huge selection of herbs, vegetables, trees and decorative plants. Here is where you will find lots of seedlings and garden starts, as well as some more developed plants, shrubs and trees. On Saturdays, J&D farms brings you herb starts that will refresh your garden and kitchen! Southbound will be returning to the market on Saturdays and Thursdays. While on hiatus they have moved to a new nursery and promise bigger better things soon to come! While all their seedlings are selected for their viability in our climate, their ‘locally adapted’ seedlings are grown from second and third generation plants this season, making them stronger and more acclimated to our environment. Southbound will also be returning with an expanded edible and medicinal flower selection. All flowers from Southbound are useful as well as good-looking, so don’t forget to ask how to use your plant as you buy. If you’re interested in gaining some gardening skills this season, check out classes offered by Southbound! These classes are offered regularly and are a great resource for gardeners new and old. And don’t miss our workshops at the market this month!
