The Cumming Harvest:  Trick or Treat!


Halloween is just a few days away, so check out these seasonal TREATS from the market!

  • PUMPKIN Spice Bread (My Daily Bread)
  • Burning Tongue GHOST Pepper Sauce (NEW from Vitae Gourmet)
  • Jelly – GHOST Pepper (Simply Southard)
  • Gourds (Connie’s Cornucopia)
  • Various eggs to make DEVILed eggs with
  • Various breads to make sandWITCHes with

Now for the TRICK:

Bug-Infused Ice Cube Trick

*Freeze gummy worms or bug-shape candy into classic ice cube trays for a funny prank and spooky-sweet drink surprise. Place one candy in each cube, then fill the ice cube tray with water as usual. Once the water freezes, pop out the ice cubes and add them to any drink. Our favorite? Halloween-theme punch.
*Editor’s Tip: Don’t worry if the candy spills over the tray edge. It just adds to the scary effect of this Halloween prank.

Our address is: 3540 Keith Bridge Road, Cumming 30041 (behind Hollywood Feed). Please be sure to come to the new address this weekend.

As a reminder the market is open from Wednesday morning through Thursday at 8pm for orders. All orders must be picked up on Saturday from 10am until 12pm noon. Please be respectful of our volunteers’ time and plan to pick up early and not right before noon.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Thanks,
