Market Season is in Full Swing!
You will find some really unique and delicious local products at this market– here are a few of our favorites:
EatPique – These honey-pickled mustard seeds are one of our favorite new condiments. They make a fantastic base for salad dressings, sauce and glazes. They are also a beautiful addition to cheese and charcuterie plates. Chef Mike Vitelli has certainly piqued our culinary curiosity with this delicious, unique pickle!
Green River Picklers – Is there anything that Beau Martin can’t pickle? We’re willing to bet that everything he and his team of small-batch picklers put out there is amazing. Locally-sourced ingredients and old Appalachian recipes make this our favorite pickle company, period. Try their Spicy Pickled Okra alongside your next pimento cheese sandwich. It doesn’t get much better than that!
Roof Top Apiary (Bee Masters Honey) – Dave Stallings loves talking with customers about beekeeping, Kombucha-making, chicken keeping, and life in general. He and his wife, Martha, produce top-quality honey and beeswax products from their hives all over Henderson county. We love the Sourwood Honey in tea, on biscuits, and whenever a little sweetness is needed in our day.
The Fish Man – This vendor really deserves his own blog post, or news article, or something more than just a blurb on our website. Whatever the real name of “The Fish Man” is, this Louisiana native knows his stuff. He drives down to the pier in Charleston every Thursday (at the ungodly hour of 3 AM) and loads up his cooler with fresh shrimp and other foods-of-the-sea, right off the boat. Then back up the mountain, to the Flat Rock Farmers’ Market, he makes his way to unload this impossibly-fresh catch. Although he needs no advertisement (The Fish Man has many fans at the market who come just to buy from him), he offers something so unique it seems almost unreal– fresh seafood in the mountains, sold right at our little farmers’ market.
