Botetourt Farmers Market

The Botetourt Farmers' Market at Daleville Town Center kicked off the 2014 season last weekend. They will also be there tomorrow, so be sure to check them out.

Produce is still a little scarce - we're having a slow start to the growing season - but you can find a few things to tickle your fancy.

 
I didn't count the number of folks who participated last weekend, but it was an impressive number for the first day.
 
 
Local artist Teresa Reed offered up a variety of outdoor items, including these cute teacup bird feeders (above and below).
 

 
She had several different types of interesting wind chimes, too. Very creative!
 


These are wine bottles.

 
The artist herself.
 
 
Farmers' Market president Dayna Patrick.
 
 
This person sold soy candles.
 
 
You could buy plants for your garden.
 
 
Or flowers.
 

 
There was live music!
 
 
Good things to eat.
 
 
Expect to see this type of product when you get there!
 
 
You can even find seasonings and grass-fed organic beef!
 
The Botetourt Farmers' Market is open on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Check it and join the locavore movement - support your local farmers and artisans.

  1. About all I could sell now would be seeds and as even the kale that survived the winter has bolted. Probably some greenhouse
    people will have a few things before long.

  4. Our Saturday Market kicked off the season about a month ago, though there isn't much produce (other than hothouse offerings) during the first month or so. It's mostly garden plants, cheese, fish, honey, baked goods and the like this early in the season. A friend and I are planning to attend either this coming Saturday or the next, depending on the weather.
