Join your friends (or maybe make a new friend) at the market this Saturday. Shopping local is a great way to support the community as a good bit of your dollar goes right back into the local economy. What goes around, comes around, as they say!
Conveniently located near downtown Clarkesville, the Clarkesville Farmers Market is a 100% chemical free outdoor market (which includes up to six Certified Naturally Grown farms) that’s open Saturdays, 9 a.m. until noon. It’s located next to The Old Clarkesville Mill (683 Grant Street).
This week’s vendors:
Angel Mountain Sweets: Angel Mountain Sweets is celebrating the season with many of your fall favorites. Choose from our wide selection of cakes, pies, cookies, and sweet rolls! Follow us on Facebook to see what’s cooking!
Aprons–Ties That Bind: Sadie is a local maker of aprons, aprons, and more aprons. She makes them for babies, children, teens, women, and even men. Some aprons are fun, others are cute, others are creative, but all are great for utilitarian use―the original purpose for aprons. No two are ever exactly the same. And she has new ones each week! They make thoughtful gifts.
Granola Bar and Grill: Jimmy and Patty use all natural ingredients in their Rock-N-Ola artisan granola bar bites like toasted old fashioned oats with deluxe nuts; dried fruits like cranberries, golden raisins, cherries, blueberries, mango, pineapple & coconut; sunflower seeds; and local raw B&B honey in each batch. They offer seasonal varieties, too. Hand-packaged and sold in 8 and16 oz. bags.
Jarhead Farm (CNG): Cliff will be there with some dried herbs and tomatoes, maybe some late season Marzanos (plum tomatoes), maybe some okra and jicama. He says he’ll be digging the ginger to bring, too. Plus, he’ll have Ghost, Reaper, and Scorpion peppers with some Thai and Fatalii peppers as well. Muscadine jam is finally ready! And last, but not least: Presenting the fall collection of Apple Tart, Cinnamon Apple Plum, Muscadine and Strawberry Apple jams at a discounted price.
Mill Gap Farm (CNG): Mill Gap will be there with turnip and mustard greens, leeks, arugula, garlic, herbs, yellow squash, and herbs. Chuck will also have local raw honey, sunchoke pickles, Amy’s Burmese peanuts, artisan bread, and cardamom morning rolls.
Pure & Simple: Lisa is back this week with all of her natural health and beauty products. She released a couple of new products this week, too: Pumpkin Goat Milk bar soap and Natural Liquid Dish Soap (Lavender). In addition, she’ll have hair lotion/beard oil & essential oil roll-ons in three popular scents―citrus, lavender, and peppermint, plus a variety of naturally handmade soaps, lip balm, sugar/salt scrub, deodorant, sunscreen, bug repellent, household cleaner, pain cream, body butter, hair oil, hand sanitizer, facial cream, liquid soap, foaming soap, dog & people shampoo bars, laundry soap, bath salts, shave soap, and herbal teas.
