Story time begins at 10 a.m. and we may offer another at 10:30 a.m. depending on the number of children visiting the booth. The Master Gardeners will also be providing adult education that day and the topic is Vegetable Gardening and Soil Building. Stop by and pick up a schedule for the season that you can hang on your fridge!

As always, the Bounce House will be available for the children!

Sunday, May 11th is Mother’s Day! We have some great gift items at our market. Here are some ideas for Mom:

Skopp Bakery – Rikki is offering a package of rolls and jam or marmalade of your choice for $11. This would make an easy breakfast or brunch for Mom. It is recommended to pre-order this special offer through the online market but there will be a limited supply available at her table on Saturday.

Circle C Candles – Keith offers a wide variety of soy based candles. He even takes custom orders. Watch the online market for his inventory to be added soon.

Jim King builds some really nice blue bird houses that would make a great gift for moms who enjoy bird watching.

Greener Pastures Products – Mica makes Goat Milk Soaps, foaming hand soaps, sugar scrubs, facial bars, shampoo bars, shaving whips, bath teas and more! Her inventory is available through the online market as well as at the physical market.

The Bread Basket – Brenda offers a wide variety of baked goods, cakes, cookies and more! I know she’ll have something special for Mom’s.

Susi’s Kitchen – Susi has hand knitted items, baked goods and vegetable plants. A nice variety of gift ideas. Susi sells through the online market as well.

Marie’s Crochet – Marie has a nice selection of crocheted items for your kitchen, including dish cloths, aprons for your soap bottle, cute veggie designed plastic bag holders, hot pads and more.

Create4Good – Melissa has created a great line of homemade cleaning supplies and personal items. She also has local, raw, unfiltered honey for sale. You can see her items in the online market as well as every Saturday in the park.

Perennial Gardens – Shelli always has a beautiful selection of flowers, plants and veggie plants. Most moms and grandmas love plants and flowers. Stop by and see Shelli for a great gift selection.

Possum Holler Produce – Tom has some beautiful fresh cut flowers each week. Wouldn’t a nice bouquet be a great addition to Moms gift?

Opening Day April 19, 2014 - Online Market Will Continue


Farmers Market of Siloam Springs


The physical market will open for business Saturday, April 19th! This means the Online Market pick up location will be moving to the concession stand in the park. Within the next couple of weeks I hope to be able to assist some of our produce vendors with setting up their products online.

When you come to the market to pick up your online order you will come to the Market Table to pay for that order. We will provide you with a copy of your invoice to take to the concession stand and pick up your items. The concession stand will be open for the online market from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturdays.

The Online Market will be CLOSED the week of Dogwood Festival because the market re-locates to the Arvest Bank Parking lot across from 28 Springs.

We have had 20 vendors commit to being at our market each Saturday and 14 commit to being at market each Tuesday. We are pleased to announce that we will have 12 approved WIC vendors this year! Market Management is excited about the variety of meats, produce, baked goods and crafts that our market will be able to offer this year.

Watch our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/SiloamSpringsFarmersMarket)this week for a highlight each day of the vendors that will be with us Opening Day!

Weather is going to take a turn back to cold temps on Monday so make sure you are prepared to cover any vegetation that can’t tolerate a freeze.

See you Saturday!

Farmers Market Newsletter


Farmers Market of Siloam Springs

Market is open for business again! Orders will be accepted through Wednesday at 5 p.m. www.siloamsprings.locallygrown.net


When you view the online market this week you will notice that there is no produce currently available. Thao Farms attends a market in Tahlequah on Saturdays and will not be available for the online market through the spring, summer or fall.

We hope to have produce available from our Saturday vendors online soon. I’ve checked in with a couple of them and kale, lettuce, bok choy, spinach and onions will be ready to go for opening day…provided the weather continues to cooperate.

Next weeks newsletter will provide a preview of the vendors for Saturdays and Tuesdays. So stay tuned…..

Countdown to Opening Day in the Park!

Market is open for business again! Orders will be accepted through Wednesday at 5 p.m. www.siloamsprings.locallygrown.net


It is hard to believe there are only two more Saturdays until opening day on April 19th! The Online Market will continue to be available and the pick up location will be moved to the park where the physical market is located.

Market Management is so thankful that Trish Houston, of Wellspring Nutrition, allowed us to use the space next door for the online pick up through the winter. We appreciate all the support she has given the Farmers Market!

Thank you to all who have been faithfully purchasing during the winter market and supporting this new endeavor to provide locally grown food all year long. We hope you continue to use and enjoy shopping the online Farmers Market year round.

Spring has arrived!


Farmers Market of Siloam Springs

Market is open for business again! Orders will be accepted through Wednesday at 5 p.m. www.siloamsprings.locallygrown.net


Only 5 weeks until the physical market opens up! April 19th is the official Opening Day for the 2014 season. The online market will still be available and we hope to add our additional produce vendors online. Orders will continue to be accepted from Sunday -Wednesday each week and pick up will be at the market in the park each Saturday. Meal planning couldn’t be easier with the online market. Plus, you can browse the additional selections before or after you pick up your order.

Here is another recipe to try using spring onions and eggs. Enjoy!

10 thin spring onions
4 large eggs, lightly beaten $
1 cup milk $
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper $
2 tablespoons butter
5 ounces Gruyere cheese, cubed
Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400°. Heat a 10-inch cast-iron skillet in oven. Trim roots from onions; discard roots. Chop half of onions.

2. Whisk together eggs and milk. Sift together flour and next 3 ingredients. Gradually add flour mixture to egg mixture, whisking rapidly 20 to 30 seconds or just until blended and smooth. (There should be no lumps.) Stir in chopped onions. Let stand 5 minutes.

3. Carefully remove hot skillet from oven. Add butter, and let stand until butter is melted. Place skillet over medium-high heat, and pour batter into skillet. Arrange cheese and remaining whole onions over top of batter, and cook 30 seconds to 1 minute or until edges begin to set.

4. Transfer skillet to top oven rack, and bake at 400° for 22 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and puffy. (Outside edges should be crispy, and inside texture should resemble a custard popover. Pie will deflate quickly.) Serve immediately.
