Thursday... City Greens Day!

Hello Shoppers!

Did you get a chance to try our rainbow colored carrots last week?? If not, give them a chance today!

Oh and by the way, Purple and Red are the original carrot colours, the orange not taking hold until the 16th century when the Dutch created a carrot in honour of their royal family, the House of Orange.

Read more:

We also have some fresh, locally grown mushrooms- oysters and shiitake. 

Our meat freezer is pretty well stocked, including bacon, pork chops, brats, pork sausage (breakfast sausage), ground pork, and more. We also have ground beef this week, but as always the earlier you can come, the more plentiful the selection will be!

And, as usual, our canned staples are in as well... including the return of Freddie Lee James Ghetto Sauce (a BBQ for all occasions)...

Hope we see you in the market today!

First Snow of the Year!

Good Morning, City Greeners!

As we can all see, winter has decided to show up this morning. Our dedicated farmers have to make the trip from Silex, MO, and will do their best to show up around NOON. With that said, the opening of our market will be pushed back to NOON.

Our farmers will be bringing in two kinds of greens, radishes, squash, and possibly a few other fresh items (as well as the best eggs in Missouri, of course).


We have a freezer full of pork producs (including plenty of bacon!) and tasty soups. You will also find pecans, walnuts (NEW PRODUCT!), organic popcorn, mushrooms (OYSTER and SHIITAKE- locally grown! Thanks Ozark Forest Mushrooms)

Also some fresh cheese, pasta, rice, coffees- AND MORE!

If you do decide to make the trip today, PLEASE exercise caution and take your time.

Enjoy our first snow of the year, and be safe!
