The Growers Market
The Sopchoppy Growers Market will take place this Saturday, July 23rd, from 11am to 3pm; rain or shine.
Special Event at the this week’s Market
Come out and support the Wakulla “10U” All-Star Baseball Team at the market this Saturday. The All-Star Team won their District and placed second in the State Championship and is now headed to North Carolina for National Regionals. The baseball boys’ “sisters” will be making “pine cone” bird feeders and selling raffle tickets on Saturday from 11am to 1pm. Help the team make it to N.C. to represent Wakulla County.
Crescent Moon Farm will be here with peaches, blueberries, porcini mushrooms, rosemary, chives, onions, kale and Jack’s wheat bread.
The Barnhardt Family will be here with fresh corn on-the-cob, a variety of their home-grown produce and some out-of-season or non-local produce for resale. In addition, Neil will have his pastels with him, if you’re interested in a nice, short portrait for $20
Serenity Acres Farm will not be here but we will take orders for any of their goat products and farm fresh eggs. Just come into the shop and there will be a price list of their products. They will bring the order to the Lake Ella Farmers Market and Jack will bring it to POSH. You can pick up your order any time after Wednesday including at next Saturday’s Market.
We will, also, take orders for Tony and Jane Ellen Strickland's T&J Farm fresh, raw milk from Jersey cows.
Of course, all raw dairy products and farm-fresh eggs available at the Growers’ Market are labeled and sold "pet food only - not for human consumption" per Florida State Law.
