Sassafras Creek Farm at California Farmers Market -- Saturday, 1 May 2021

Posted 4/24/2021 2:00pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends!

We are excited to be returning to the California ("BAE") Farmers Market that officially OPENS a week from today -----  Saturday, 1 May (9 am - 1 pm)!  California Farmers Market is located in the parking lot of BAE Systems at 22810 Three Notch Road.

We will have plenty of cool season, certified organic vegetables to welcome you back to eating fresh from our farm. Look for our Friday evening email letting you know what we'll have at market the next day. 

In addition, we will have Anchored Roots Farm fresh, local, seasonal flower bouquets for you to pick-up at our CA Farmers Market stand on Saturdays, after you purchase them through Anchored Roots' on-line storeTo purchase flowers starting on-line now for pick-up at our market stand on Saturday, 1 May, please go toBuy Anchored Roots Farm Flowers!

 Last year, due to the pandemic, we chose to sell our vegetables online and distribute them to our customers during Saturday on-farm pick-ups.  We felt that was the safest and most efficient way to make our vegetables available to you. Now that it's 2021, we and the county have a much better understanding of how to operate safely at a farmers market, and many more people are getting vaccinated. David, I and our entire farm crew are fully-vaccinated, as will be our farm stand workers.

We very much appreciate your support last year, as we shifted to selling on-line and picking up on-farm. We know that was popular with a number of you and are sorry to disappoint some of you by discontinuing that approach. We just really miss selling our produce in a farmers market environment, with other vendors and the public social scene. 

So, we hope to see you, your friends and family at the Saturday California Farmers Market this year! We've missed you and can't wait to see you and catch up.  We hope that you are all doing very well.

Thank you!

David & Jennifer Paulk
