Temperatures may be dropping, but vendors at the Waxhaw Farmer’s Market continue to come out from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. each Saturday morning to provide locally grown and organic fare. A quick stroll through the market, and you’ll quickly be able to pick up all the fresh ingredients you could want for an authentic and delicious farm-to-table feast this holiday season.

To kick-off your entertaining get-together, make an unforgettable brie en croute, using any one of Family of 4 Berries’ many preserves. Located in Monroe and established in 2009, this farm grows over 400 blueberry bushes, and also offers up peach, plum, fig, apricot and jalapenos.  Don’t miss out on their Triple Berry recipe – combining blackberries, raspberries and strawberries.  It’s their top seller and surely a crowd pleaser!

Serve up a winning salad with vegetable selections from Dabhar Farm including heirloom tomatoes, colored carrots, and Russian and Curly Kale.  In addition to a healthy showcase of vegetables, they also grow seasonal fruits, as well as raise all kinds of poultry and beef, making them a fully sustainable farm.

And give that salad a little something extra when you top it with fresh goat cheese from Boscy Acres Farm.  Their savory recipes such as garlic and chive, shallot and dill, or cranberry walnut are always in high demand this time of year.

Add to your stuffing Sharon View Farms’ log-grown shitake mushrooms.  These mushrooms are purchased from Wisconsin as certified organic seed and then grown throughout the winter.  After six months, the mushrooms consume the logs in which they were planted and they are harvested, packaged and sold.

And while it’s no question this Market has things covered in the food department, give the gift of warmth this holiday season with Happy Hills Alpaca Farm’s best-selling alpaca socks.  Or try any number of all-natural deodorants, lotions, body scrubs and bath bombs from Wesley Chapel’s Bergamot Cove.  They even have holiday gift packages for both men and women.

The Waxhaw Farmer’s Market Manager Haley Pillars came onboard in April, having shopped it for the last eight years.  She raves, “This market 100 percent supports sustainability in the environment.  It’s important for us to hang on to those things.  Shop local, support local.”
