This is worthy of reposting! Go see Shirley on Saturday for all your holiday needs.
Every year for Christmas I like to get something local for my neighbors, friends, and family (and something that could work as a hostess gift at holiday parties). Last year I got some beautiful honey from the market and attached a tag listing ways that Douglas and I like to use local honey in our kitchen (salad dressings, marinades, on a cracker with cheese, etc). This year I was talking to the blondes looking for a new idea and Tiffany suggested I contact Shirley Carwile at the Lynchburg Community Market.
So I did!http://lynchburgcommunitymarket.com/%5B/caption%5D
And she’s the sweetest. At her booth you can find jams, jellies, relishes, salsa, baked goods, even crafts and towels! She has been making these delicious creations for forty five years and selling at the market for twenty eight! Incredible! Go check her out, buy some jam, and learn more of her story. She was farm raised, has almost always had her own garden, and believes everyone should be able to have locally grown and home canned food. Her favorite thing about being at the market is the people!
Shirley is just one of many fantastic vendors you can meet and buy from at our awesome community market. Go each week to try something new! Bread, cheese, produce, fruit, canned goods, sweets, chicken, eggs, anything you can think of! Please support local farmers and creators whenever you can!
Thanks Shirley and the Lynchburg Community Market! I know my people will be thrilled with their goodies from you this year!
