Foothills Market:  Market Reminder (and No Market Next Week)

On Sunday, I forgot to say Foothills Market will be closed next week because of the Thanksgiving holiday. So, if you are looking to add some fresh, local produce to your Thanksgiving table, be sure to place an order today before 5:00 p.m.

What do we have for Thanksgiving? How about butternut squash, roasted or in a soup? We have Thanksgiving classics like sweet potatoes and cranberry relish (with apples and walnuts, yum!). Maybe you would like some jalapeno poppers to snack on while watching football. Maybe you’d like to save yourself the trouble of making a dessert by picking up some Fantasy Fudge or homemade brownies. Maybe you could use simple collard greens to cut through the fat and sugar in a typical Thanksgiving meal. Maybe you just don’t want to bother with a turkey and would like some beef steaks o the grill or a roast in the slow cooker.

Browse the market between now and 5:00 p.m. We’ll have your order ready for pickup tomorrow afternoon!

Make local food part of your Thanksgiving!
