 A Real Food Thanksgiving

Tonight some of us learned about the national Real Food Challenge that the University of the South will be entering along with other colleges and universities around the country. We applaud the University of the South as they make this bold move and we encourage you to be bold in your selection of local, sustainable, and humanely raised foods. We challenge you to make this a Real Food Thanksgiving. Luckily,  whether you're serving a traditional or non-traditional Thanksgiving meal, we've got the ingredients covered! Sweet potatoes, pumpkins, potatoes, greens, garlic, lettuce, turnips, mushrooms, squash, herbs, honey, molasses, eggs, beef, chicken, rabbit, pork, lamb, APPLES, and of course baked goods. Delicious food starts with the best ingredients. Make this a Real Thanksgiving!

Summer Fields has added grass fed lamb to the market. Aside from being raised on grass and hormone and antibiotic free, these sheep are also Gulf Coast Native crosses. Gulf Coast Native Sheep are a critically endangered breed of sheep that are well suited to living in the south. Aside from meat and wool, Summer Fields raises breeding stock for this rare breed of sheep.  

This upcoming market is just two days before Thanksgiving -- one of the largest of the year! Customers who purchased a turkey deposit (back in early summer) may pick up their turkeys from Fountain Springs Farm outside where you will pay the balance on your bird. We are open for pickup, as always from 4:30 to 6:15, but the earlier you can be at market, the sooner you can get your order home!
Click here to sign in and place your order. (between Saturday at 5 pm and Monday at 10 am).
