Cobblestone Farmers Market


So excited as my local farmers market in downtown Winston Salem NC has just started back up again on the corner of Patterson and third street on Tuesday mornings. It features a good selection of seasonal produce, organic grass fed meats and fresh breads. You can also find soaps and other homemade items.  Its fun to chat with the farmers get tips and learn about the growing process. So come along I will show you around also don't forget if you have farmers market pictures be sure to share on twitter each Tuesday and tag #tuesfoodmarket I also have a pinterest board and would be happy to add you as a contributor. Or share on the chow and chatter facebook wall :-)




eggplant plants, I got one to add to my garden :-)

Fresh bread 


cauliflower greens love this as often these are discarded but they are edible and nutritious 

pretty Swiss chard 


there was even a baby pig for kids to pet :-) 

Bok Choi 

baby radish and herbs 

Granddad giving Roshan banana bread, looks like it enjoyed it :-) 


Pretty peonies 

The best thing about the market is it just gets better, as more and more fresh produce comes into season. 

Hope you can join me on Tuesday's around the world, if you don't tweet you can share on chow and chatter's facebook wall too:-) 

Have a lovely weekend 

Much love

  3. Believe it or not, even in our little mountain town we have a great farmer's market on the square on Saturdays. An organic farm brings in produce and we never fail to show up in time for something delicious and very fresh.

    Kids are looking great Rebecca. Glad they enjoy going with you. Funny, on our way home from the farmer's market, we always stop at the library and check out something to read for the weekend.

  5. So lovely! Simon has been so excited for the Farmer's Market to start again. He remembers the fresh flowers we would get there last year and keeps complaining that our table doesn't look pretty without them.

  9. I love shopping at the local markets. I enjoy speaking with the farmer, especially my friend the egg man. He happily takes me used egg containers and fills them up and then tells me when the eggs were laid. If I nudge him and say I'm going home to make breakfast he'll give me eggs that were laid yesterday. I don't get that at the supermarket!

  10. Looks great! I went to a farmer's market today too. I loaded up on some good stuff, including mushrooms (which are amazing in Japan!). I am looking forward to my upcoming trips because I will be visiting as many markets as I can in the various countries I visit, so I'll share those pics with you (and on my blog of course). Most of my time will be spent in Israel, France and Spain, but I have a few surprise locations up my sleeve.

  19. We do love the farmers markets. We have been stopping at our Amish market a lot lately because it is closer and open during the week. A great place to get local eggs, cheese, and produce.

    I love seeing updates on your kids, they are growing so fast! :)

  21. Love Cobblestone Farmer's Market. We were farmers there for the past two years selling our goat's milk soap and will miss partipating this year. In December, 2011, we opened a Farm Store on our farm in Forsyth County. We now sell eggs, grass-fed beef, pasture raised lamb and free range chicken from our animals along with local products from neighboring farms and our soap. We have lots of goat items too. Our creamery is in its finishing stage and we hope to be making aged goat cheese by the end of the year - - buffalocreekfarmandcreamery.com and we're on FB too!
