...let's Talk about GOATS!
What do we call the incredible mash up of SUMMER and FALL in terms of the wide range of produce available? Ideas welcome and in the meantime - let's jump into this glorious, colorful bounty!
Now, let's Talk about GOATS! - CHEESE and DAIRY!
Like any artisan product, each maker has their own style and touch that is unique to their talents. With GOAT cheese and GOAT products, how the animal is raised, what it eats - key factors that determine some of the base flavor. Lucky for Cobblestone, we have two of the NC award winning goat cheese producers on hand every week with their own distinctive products! Please spend some time checking out the different offerings, how you might use each in appetizers and a myriad of dishes - morning eggs always call for chevre! Additionally, GOAT milk yogurt and GOAT meat are available which simply expands culinary opportunities like bubbling curries and yummy dips to go with grilled or raw veggies!
Enjoy checking out new GOAT products this week or very soon by visiting Buffalo Creek Farm and Creamery, Goat Lady Dairy and Wholesome Country Creamery! Hungry now...gotta chop some peppers, eggplant, onions and 'maters to go with that goat meat, so check out that VENDOR LIST.
See you at the market!
Cobblestone LOCAL equals 50+ independent Piedmont food businesses in one place!
If you’re looking for humanely raised meat from a small farm (rather than a big food company), head to The Cobblestone Farmers Market on Saturday mornings. Here, you can talk with farmers about how they raise their animals and even ask folks like NOMAD to visit their farm.
Buying from your local vendors gives you the opportunity to ask questions and gain insight into how your food was grown and harvested. More information means that you can make smart buying decisions for you and your family.
Check in with ALL of our protein vendors - NOMAD, Meadows Family Farm, Buck Creek Farm, Pioneer, Buffalo Creek Farm, Harmony Ridge Farm, PTB Farm, & Billy Place Farm - for a wide array of protein options. Remember to pre order to save your pick!
Do you or somebody you know use SNAP/EBT? Come by the Information Booth each week to take out your SNAP/EBT dollars and receive extra dollars in Market Tokens! If you take out $10 or more you will receive an extra $10 in Market Tokens. Meaning an extra $40 to spend at market each month! Tell your friends!
