Watauga County Farmers’ Market will be having the first holiday market of the season this Saturday, November 22 from 10 to 2. We are expecting more vendors this year and you will have a wide selection to choose from.
Cold weather has slowed many of the local vegetables, but Shiloh Avery and Jason Roehrig of Tumbling Shoals Farm will be harvesting a nice variety of fresh treats including kale, collards, mustard, carrots, chard, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, beets, salad mix, spinach, arugula, mesclin and salad turnips. Charles Church will have four kinds of potatoes: Yukon Gold, Rose Finn, Apple Fingerling and Red Norland. Charles will also have garlic, butternut squash, Swiss chard, parsley, carrots, onions, apples and sweet sorghum molasses. Eugene McGuire and James Wagner will have fresh eggs from free range chickens.

This is where I wish I was right now. A bottle of ginger beer and a rocker on the back porch of the Mast in Valle Crucis…
Nestled in a secluded mountain valley, you’ll discover spectacular foliage, rustic countryside and a place Charles Kuralt calls, “… a destination.” That place is the Mast General Store in the rural historic district of Valle Crucis. Since 1883, we’ve been outfitting the Appalachians with traditional mercantile goods, comfortable clothing, rugged footwear and quality outdoor gear for all mountain seasons. When in the North Carolina High Country, we invite you to warm up by the potbellied stove, mail a letter at the corner post office, and discover for yourself why…..
Mast General Store – Since 1883
Marie just posted a photo from her deck above Valle Crucis…go check out the look of early spring in the North Carolina mountains.
This was the view from my deck. As you see, there are no leaves on our trees up here. In fact, the sexy blush of spring is not yet visible upon the branches. But what you do not see are the sounds of approaching spring in my neck of the woods.
