Chances are that you’ll be heading to the epicenter of deliciousness this Saturday afternoon for Clarkesville’s “Taste of Clarkesville” event in the afternoon. Sounds like a good plan. An even better plan? Head to the local farmer’s market first to pick up some locally grown, baked, and made goodness. What a way to spend a day in town.
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: They’ll have plenty of new breads, cakes, and cookies for your Saturday visit to the market. Remember, special orders can be picked up at the market site even after October. You choose the date and time and we will meet you there with your order.
Aprons–Ties That Bind: Sadie Kelly 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.
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. Their granola bites are hand packaged and sold in 16 oz. size bags.
Jarhead Farm (CNG): Cliff says he MAY have some late season tomatoes. He’ll probably have some Ping Tung Long eggplant, a few winter squash, okra, and probably some freshly-dug Jicama. And of course there’ll be sweet and hot jams, dried and fresh herbs, and hot peppers including Ghost, Trinidad Scorpion, Fatalii, and Carolina Reapers.
K and H Farms: Cavonna will be at the market this Saturday with pastured meats (chicken and pork). She’s running a sale price on pork chops this week: 4 for $15. Contact her this week via Facebook if you need to set up an order prior to Saturday. Her next time at our market won’t be until October 22, so bring your cooler and stock up!
Mill Gap Farm (CNG): Mill Gap Farm will be there with a few roma tomatoes, green beans, buthi, red pontiac potatoes, okra, fresh herbs, Burmese peanuts, cardamom morning rolls, artisan bread, Sunflower salad oil, and sunchoke pickles.
