In celebration of National Farmers’ Market Week, we’d like to invite all of you to get to know your farmers just a little bit better! Did you know you could do that right from the RCM website? Simply click on the “Our Growers” tab at the top of the page. From there you can then select a particular farmer and find out more information like: Where they are located; Their stories; and what they grow/raise. You can even view all of our farmers on a map by selecting the “View Them on a Map” link. Cool huh?

We’ll be closing for orders at 10:00 p.m. tonight. Plenty of time left to order!

RCM Opening Bell--National Farmers' Market Week


Hello RCM Community!

Welcome to a very special market week, indeed! This week, August 4th – August 10th is National Farmers’ Market Week!

National Farmers’ Market Week is a celebration of farmers’ markets all over the country! And boy, do we have cause to celebrate! Tom Vilsack, the Agricultural Secretary of the United States announced that the U.S. has 8,144 registered farmers’ markets, up from around 5,000 just 4 years ago. RCM is one of those registered markets!

Beyond celebrating the great additions of new markets each and every year, I think it is worth celebrating our farmers, artisans, and producers at our great market. Without them, without their hard work, none of this would be possible. RCM also owes a debt of gratitude to our extremely awesome customer base. We thank each and every one of you who support RCM, whether it’s one time, or every single week!

Sweet tooth? Check out our delicious baked goods, including breads, cookies, cupcakes, cobbler, and much more!

Did you know RCM has a Recipes section? If you’re looking for a new dish to try for dinner tonight, you might find some inspiration there! You’re also able to add your own recipes if you’d like to share them with others!

Hey everyone!

Yay! for the recent rains we’ve had over this weekend. I hope you all enjoyed them as much as I (and my garden) did!

Cherry tomatoes, chili peppers, jalapeños, banana peppers, onions, green bell peppers. Can anyone guess what could be made out of these ingredients? If you guessed a fresh homemade salsa, you are correct! Some was made in the kitchen this weekend and let me tell you: Fresh ingredients absolutely make the difference in a great salsa! Try your hand today. All of those ingredients listed above are available to buy on the market! (I even threw in some peaches into one batch of salsa)

Also be sure to check out our other great products, like our newest artisan, Irish Elk Farm, selling blackberry cobblers! Yum!

Ratchford Farms will most likely be trading off weeks on and off RCM. I will do my best to let everyone know which weeks they will be on and which weeks they will be off of RCM.

Market Time!


Happy market day, everyone!

Welcome to another RCM week!

At first glance this week, you might notice that the selection looks a bit small. This is true. Meatworks is taking the week off this week in order to be a part of a television series shot, in part, on their farm and at their store. They will be returning next week as normal, though, so keep that in mind!

Lots of delicious meat selections are still available from Ratchford Farms this week, though! Don’t miss these!

Newly added items this week include the awesome gift baskets from Drewry Farms. These are fantastic for gifts for anyone and everyone in your life. Drewry also has squash and yellow zucchini available in the vegetable category! Red Haven Peaches are available this week from Drewry as well. YUM!

Also available in vegetables this week: Crook neck squash, garlic, onions, potatoes, and much more!

Our newest addition to our RCM artisans is Laughing Bear Cupcakes Look for her new products on the “What’s New” section as well as in the Baked Goods category. Her selections include Peanut Butter and Chocolate currently!
