Hello DFM Shoppers,
We are looking forward to another spectacular Market day this Saturday. Our farmers tables will be covered with assorted melons, peaches, peppers, tomatoes, sweet corn, eggplant, potatoes, peas and greens and so much more! All sorts of baked goods, sweet treats and breads will be available, as well as honey, sauces, cheeses, milk, pantry items, kettle corn, and ready to eat foods from our food truck CoCo’s Cuisine. Chicken, beef, pork, lamb, and seafood will be there too! Not to mention flowers, soaps and self care goodies to treat yourself.
Chef Raul, from our local Mexican restaurant Mestizo, will be providing a cooking demo using farm fresh ingredients. Be sure to stop by for a sample.
We’ve got it all, so don’t miss out! Make plans to visit the Davidson Farmers Market this Saturday from 9 am-noon.
