We have been so busy slinging shrooms this summer- posting our monthly update got put on hold for a spell. We have two more Saturdays to go! We have had a great first season! We served about 100 one ounce mushroom samples each market for a crazy grand total of over 2000 samples during the 22 week season, that's a lot of sauted shrooms- 125 pounds to be exact! We sold over 900 boxes of oyster mushrooms, a lot of dried shrooms, powdered shrooms, shroom soup kits, and wild varieties of shrooms as our forager could find them. Wow, we are amazed at the communities positive response to our farm grown mushrooms!
We do think the best part of selling at the summer farmers market is getting to meet and work with all of the vendors and customers. Travelers Rest has been very open and friendly accepting us right into the market fold. Thanks Travelers Rest! We are excited to do it all again next year.
We are gearing up for the Harvest Market & Bluegrass Festival which will be held at same market place but on Thursday evenings 5:30 pm-8:30pm for the whole month of October. Fresh produce, art, food trucks and great music, can't wait! We will finish up the year at The Very Merry Holiday Market on Saturday, December 9th 1-5pm. This will be a great opportunity to shop for Christmas gifts and our fresh shrooms will be available too. We plan on having a lot of handmade mushroom related gifts for all of the shroom loving people out there, so come by and see us in the pavilion.
