It’s hot and humid and now’s a good time to check out CULTURED TRADITIONS new offerings, Jun flavors Mango Magic and Everything with fruits, berries, ginger and honey. Jun is naturally "fizzy’, slightly fermented, probiotically active, very refreshing in Summertime. CT has lots of Juns & Kvass, Coconut Kefirs, fermented Veggies (cherry Tomatoes, Green Beans & Carrots), and plenty of other taste treats.TRY SOME TODAY! In the Fermented/Probiotic Products section.

Cucumbers, Shrimp, among late Additions


Dawson Harvest for June 8th

Cucumbers and Broccoli Just Added to This Week’s Market

CUCUMBERS and BROCCOLI join Summer Produce like Squash, Snow Peas, and Spring Green Onion as The Market features an abundance of wonderful variety in Vegetables. There is so much to go through it will take a few extra minutes just to check out the Produce listings for this week.

GEORGIA WHITE SHRIMP is available! It would help if the staff in charge of turning on The Market (that would be me) would remember to do so. Anyway, you can now order Shrimp, Chicken, and Beef to go with all the fresh Veggies, great Breads, local Haney, free-range Eggs, and all the other Goodies available now.

You still have Time to order, so PLACE YOUR ORDER NOW! Forgot Something? Just Do another Order. All your orders will be combined at Checkout.

THE RETURN OF THE CHICKEN!!

THE RETURN OF THE CHICKEN!!

NO, NOT the Title of a low-budget Horror film, but glorious tidings for everyone waiting for pastured Chicken to come back to the Market. It’s a full menu too, with Chicken Breasts, Whole Wings, Breakfast Links, and Whole Chickens. Hey, some Squash and Yeast Rolls would be perfect with that, don’t you think? We’ve got that, too.

If you’ve already placed one order you can place a second and they’ll be combined. ORDER NOW!!

Thanks, Alan, Market Manager
