Happy Mother’s Day from us at RCM to all the wonderful mothers in our lives. We should all be so lucky!

At last week’s market, we had Leah Newton of One Nerd Bakery as our featured farmer of May. She showcased her bakery products, and introduced us to the new Veg-Head Bread, which was delicious!!

Again, we wish all the mothers a very Happy Mother’s Day today!

Welcome to another market week, and to healthy, delicious, locally grown food!

We have Drewry Farms back on the market this week, with new offerings including green tomato bread, rum balls, iced cookies, and Mother’s Day gift baskets.

That’s right! This coming weekend marks the celebration of all the mothers out there on Mother’s Day. How better to show mom you appreciate her than with the gift of local food. Don’t forget RCM has gift cards in any amount you want to give! They are the first items on the market page!

Here’s something that has been on my radar lately, and should be on everyone’s: The USDA and EPA recently released a report on the honeybee disappearances in the United States. Here’s the news story: Colony Collapse Disorder Report. You can also find the entire USDA report at the bottom of the news story.

We’ve made it back around to another market opening day!

Don’t forget: This week is Earth Week, and Monday the 22nd is Earth Day. Tech is celebrating all week long with events! Be sure to check out the events on campus. RCM is always “Going Green” and bringing you the best locally grown food out there!

Speaking of going green, there are still plenty of greens to be had on the market, and it won’t be too long before the other spring and summer delicacies are ready for the picking! Tomatoes, squash, onions, zucchini, eggplant…YUM! I can taste them now.

“one-third of all global emissions can be traced back to our food system…”

Let’s all celebrate Earth Day this year by choosing the delicious, healthy option of local food.

Happy (almost) Earth Day!

Hey everyone!

Beautiful weather today—the best kind for working in the garden! That’s where I’ll be.

We hope you were all able to visit the Drewry’s farm yesterday for their awesome farm tour. We got to see their orchards, the bee hives, the green house, and the commercial kitchen, not to mention Viney Creek Farm and their goats! If you wish you could have gone, but didn’t know about it, be sure to check our Facebook page for future events, as well as our RCM calendar of events under the “About” tab for exciting opportunities like this one.

We have a recently added farmer, Thundering Hooves, that sells horse-hair jewelry. This makes for a certainly unique product on our great market. A big welcome to them!

Greens are plentiful, such as cabbage, collard, and mustard. Also still abundant are Kale, Spinach, and Chard. Yum!

Also, if you missed it last week, RCM now has our very own bumper stickers. These can be found under the “RCM Products” category, and make a great addition to any surface :)
