The only thing different this week is that I am currently suffering from a severe migraine, and planning an early bedtime tonight to help to fight it. Hence the early notification of open ordering.

We’re very excited to be a part of Dothan Nursery’s Spring Open House. This is the first one since 2019 and unlike prior years, will be held on a Saturday to so guests have the day to visit and enjoy instead of a few hours. Market at Dothan will be back at our usual spot near the Butterfly House and we hope you’ll drop in to meet and get to know some of your Market vendors.

The fun starts at 9 am and most of our vendors will be on hand all day. Here’s a rundown on those we know will be present:

Avalon Farms D’s Jellies Grows in Rows
Casa Perdido Hortons Farm Duck Nugget Farms
Bella Eden Farms Nana’s Teacakes
D’s Jellies are a southern classic, just like Dianne who makes all the deliciousness!


Garlic Scapes from Avalon Farms
Sugar Snap Peas from Avalon Farms
BROCCOLI!! from Avalon Farms

Avalon Farms:

Garlic scapes

Something fun to try! Garlic Scapes are the flower stem of hardneck garlic. They are great to use in place of scallions, with a mild garlic flavor. They will only be available for a few weeks. These scapes are from our Elephant Garlic. The Music Garlic will produce scapes in a few weeks. A quick Google search will yield more recipes than you’ll ever want.

Sugar Snap Peas are back in a very limited supply. The storm last Saturday tore many of them off the trellis and destroyed the plants. Those 50 mph winds were just too much for these tender vines. I’m sorry to disappoint you all. Many of you have been asking about them and there isn’t going to be much of a crop.

Broccoli is starting to trickle in. If you miss them in the market check for table sales Friday.


Yellow squash have been blooming for a week now. Unfortunately they are not being pollinated and won’t mature properly. I saw my first honey bee a few days ago on a patch of clover, so they’ll be workng the field soon. Hard to miss those big golden squash blooms.

HORTON’S FARM Sometimes God shows up in small ways to remind you of big things.

AMB Badge 050121

That was the case when this came in the mail yesterday. While I keep fewer hives than I once did, have more responsibilities in other venues and have ceased the crazy stuff like climbing tall ladders in the bed of a pickup truck, there’s still plenty I can and need to do. Becoming a Master Beekeeper was a dream come true, and though it was accomplished 8 years ago, like my college degree, at the end I was left with a profound respect for how much I DON’T know. Real education does that to you, but it also teaches you how to study and learn and apply that knowledge . . . “wisdom” I think they call it. I’m glad God’s not done with me and I’m glad He’s not done with you either.


We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible! `

This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!
