Online Market is Open!


www.siloamsprings.locallygrown.net

Good morning! This week Opossum Hollow Produce will not have anything online as Tom, Cheryl, and myself will be attending the Southern Sustainable Agriculture Working Group conference in Little Rock. We are excited about networking with other farmes and learning as much as we can. We will be attending a couple of special sessions and I am going on a field trip to Heifer Ranch! Friday and Saturday are general conference sessions and hopefully we’ll all be able to attend different sessions so we come away with as much info as possible.

Payne Farms is now selling pecans! These pecans are grown by a neighbor who has a farm in Sapulpa. They are Pawnee Mammoth Pecan Halves and were just processed (shelled & packed) this month! They are super fresh and Ericka says she is having a hard time not eating them. :) You will find them under the Nuts category and she is selling 1 lb and 3 lb packages. They store well in the freezer so be sure to stock up!

Remember to buy your farm fresh eggs, locally raised pork, poultry, lamb, and beef, and locally made breads, honey, all natural personal and home care products, and Mica’s awesome bar soaps!

Have a great week! Our Main Street Director Kelsey will be at Pour Jons to administrate order pick up.

See you in a week!

January is flying by but the greens are doing well despite the cold and lack of sun.

There is broccoli, chard, spinach, and lettuce. Lots of great chicken from Raised Rite Poultry and beef, pork, and lamb from Dos Locos.

Brenda, Susi, and Christa are ready to bake your bread. Nothing better than fresh, homemade bread for toast or a sandwich.

Melissa and Mica have your all natural home and personal care products and bar soaps.

Enjoy your week and see you Saturday!

I hope everyone was able to enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend and spend some time outside. What a blessing to have warm weather in January.

The Farmers Market Steering Committee enjoyed a wonderful planning day at Opossum Hollow Farm last week. Our committee consists of farmers and community members – Tom Fairbanks and Cheryl Wells (Opossum Hollow Produce), David Mitchell (Dos Locos Farm), Jesyka Farley, Deborah Rowden, Casey Letellier, and Jessica Pinkerton. They all work hard to help me make our market the best it can be! I really appreciate their time.

Enjoy shopping this week and see you Saturday!

The last day of 2018. This year has been good to us and I am thankful. Looking forward to what 2019 brings.

With the holidays over it’s time to settle back in to a normal routine. Our farmers have lots to offer in selections of healthy meats and there is spinach, chard, buttercrunch lettuce, and kale. Farm fresh eggs are available as well as local honey. Let our bakers bake up some fresh bread or rolls and don’t forget we have great all natural home and personal care products, laundry detergent, and home made soaps.

Happy New Year! Have a great week and see you Saturday!

Merry Christmas Eve!

The end of the year is upon us! It seems like time goes by faster each year. I hope all of you are blessed with time off to spend with family and friends and that you can reflect on all that has taken place in 2018 before you bring in the New Year – 2019.

Speaking of bringing in the New Year, hot wings would be a great addition to any parties you’re hosting or attending and Raised Rite Poultry can fill that need. If you have an Instant Pot you can cook them from frozen in 12 minutes or fresh in 10 minutes. Here is the recipe – https://www.isavea2z.com/instant-pot-recipes-honey-bbq-wings-made-in-an-electric-pressure-cooker/

There will be pork, beef, poultry, greens and eggs available along with fresh baked rolls, breads, and pies. Honey and chocolates and all natural kitchen and personal products, homemade soaps and more.

Bring in your New Year with fresh, locally grown foods! Thank you for supporting our farmers, makers, and bakers in 2018. We look forward to serving you in 2019!

Update: Produce inventory updated


If you logged in to place an order before noon it may have looked like all the produce was already sold out. That has been corrected and there is SPINACH this week, as well as chard, kale, buttercrunch, and butternut squash.

Christmas is almost here! Order your holiday ham, roasts, or chicken, pies, rolls, and get some amazing greens for your holiday celebration. Don’t forget to shop for gifts and stocking stuffers as well.

We are excited to announce that a new farmer is joining our market family! Sam and Anita Andrews, owners of Raised Rite Poultry, will begin selling their free range, Non-GMO fed poultry products on our online market beginning this week. Sam has a degree in Poultry Science and has been working in the industry for years. We enjoyed a visit to his farm last week. They have whole birds, chicken frames, and all the cuts – breasts, tenders, legs, wings, and thighs. As the name suggests, they are raising these birds well!

David Mitchell, of Dos Locos Farms, does have some R Family Farm chicken still available online. He has gone the extra mile to make sure our customers have had access to quality poultry while continuing to raise his goat, lamb, and pork, and also partner with another farmer to continue to offer grass fed beef to our customers while he is developing his own beef program. We are so thankful to have his family as part of our market family as well. There are only 3 packages of chicken breast and 8 whole birds left in his inventory from R
Family Farm. We are so blessed to be able to offer such great locally grown meats to our community even during times of transition. We are proud that R Family Farm got their start at our market aandnd grew to the point they needed larger markets and we are proud to bring the Andrews family into our market. I cooked one of their whole birds for dinner yesterday and it was really good. Then I made broth out of the bones and it gelled up beautifully.

Have a great week, wrap up your holiday shopping, order your favorite market products for pick up on Saturday and then take time to enjoy your family.

See you Saturday!

Baby kale, buttercrunch lettuce and chard are all available this week along with butternut squash and fingerling sweet potatoes!

Get your holiday ham from Dos Locos Farms. Have you tried their pork chops? We had some last week and they are so good! All the pork products were re-stocked a couple weeks ago.

Eggs, honey, breads, pies, and rolls are available as well. Let our bakers do your holiday baking! You can contact them via their email or phone # found under the Our Growers tab on this website.

Don’t forget to check out the all natural home and personal care products from Create 4 Good and the great varieties of soaps made by Mica Parks. These would make great gifts or stocking stuffers.

Speaking of gifts, get your favorite foodie a gift certificate to spend at the market!

Susi, owner of Susi’s Kitchen, will have bags of cookies available for purchase at the Online Market pick up at Pour Jons this weekend. Peppermint, Chocolate Peppermint, and Sugar Cookies with Christmas Sprinkles will be available. All are “Limited Quantities”. Come enjoy a cup of coffee at Pour Jons and get some cookies to go with it.

We appreciate our customers!

See you Saturday!

UPDATE: Online Market closed early; Cancelling Saturday Pick Up Due to Weather


Due to the approaching Winter Weather we have decided to close the market early and cancel pick up this Saturday. We rarely close our market but it’s better to keep everyone safe.

I am emailing each person that had an order so please watch for that email.

Be safe and hopefully we will get enough snow to make a snowman!

Make plans to let our bakers do some of your Christmas baking for you! From rolls to pies or specialty breads and cookies they are ready to help you create a beautiful holiday meal!

Speaking of holiday meal, you can get eggs and bacon for a nice breakfast during the week when the kids on are on break or for Christmas morning. Tired of turkey? How about a beautiful, pastured chicken or some pork ribs? You can also purchase a Holiday Ham from Dos Locos Farms.

Our farmers have lettuce in the green house so it should be available soon, weather permitting. Lack of sun and cold temps causes crops to grow at a much slower rate. Butternut squash and fingerling sweet potatoes are still available.

Stay warm this week! See you Saturday!
