Spa City Local Farm Market Co-op:  Bluebird Hill


Bluebird Hill Berry Farm will be off line for the June 27th. market. They’ll have an abundance of blueberries for delivery to the June 13 market but can’t give any assurance of any availability in July, so you might want to buy enough to freeze.

Next market is the June 13th market, opening Saturday.

Happy Summer!
Spa City Co-op

Local Farms First:  Fresh Local Food!!



Greetings Local Farms First food lovers!

Peppermint Water and More Strawberries!!

Abundant Life Organic Farm has so much to offer this week!! Strawberries, Arugula, Zucchinis, and More!

Fire Mountain Farm and Apiary also has Strawberries, Honey and Herbs like PEPPERMINT! My favorite way to use peppermint is to steep it in hot water like tea, then cool it down in the fridge for a few hours. It makes the most refreshing peppermint water EVER! It is the perfect way to cool down on hot summer days!

Thanks for supporting local family farms,

Joyful Noise Acres Farm:  The JNA Farm Market is open for ordering


Now that was a gully washer last night! Hope you all enjoyed the watering with no adverse effect on your homes or land. The drivewaay has a few ruts but nothing too bad.

The market is open for ordering and filling up with delightful offerings from our many vendors.

This week we have cheese from Mountain Valley Farm. They are not local as I cannot find local raw milk cheese but they are a grass based dairy that produces some really nice cheeses. Our family has been buying Mr. Stolzfus’ cheese for 3 years. We have 2.5 lb blocks of gouda, swiss, cheddar, jalapeño, Havarti and Colby for sale and I will have samples on Wednesday.

Blessings to each of you,
Mary Beth Sellars
