In a previous blog I wrote about Slow Food Upstate. You can read more about this movement at http://www.slowfoodupstate.com. Today was the first time that the Earth Market, a part of this movement, was held this year, and at a new venue, the Roper Mountain Science Center, near 385, on Roper Mountain Road in Greenville. There were just a few vendors. However, the growing season is not yet in full swing in the Upstate so I am sure there will be more as the season goes on. Items for sale by small, local famers in th Greenville area included honey, handmade soap, cheese, and produce. It is too early in the season for all of my favorite veggies, such as tomatoes and corn, but items available included turnips, broccoli, and various greens. Grassfed meat and pastured chicken was also for sale. The market is help every third Thursday afternoon until Novemeber 19, from 2-6 PM. I hope you will visit and support these farmers!
