What a cold way to start the new year! But, it can be a new beginning in a journey to eat healthy foods and substitute fresh green fruits and vegetables in place of all those holiday foods! Fresh kale, collards, micro greens, lettuces, Swiss chard, mustard greens, sweet potatoes are just a small part of what is offered each Thursday at the farmers market on Morganton Road from 9-1. Bundle up to keep warm. Vendors will get you in and out in a jiffy to keep you from getting too cold. (Hand and feet warmers help, too!)
Finally there is a fair weather prediction for the Thursday market next to the Armory in Southern Pines.

Thinking past a snowy day, the Thursday market forecast is a balmy 62 degrees. Good weather is just in time to get St. Patrick’s Day menu together. There is plenty of “green” produce for a colorful meal, rainbow Swiss chard and kale for the pot of good luck nourishment, and all of them are packed with lots of necessary vitamins and minerals. Try swapping lettuce for micro greens to get a power packed sandwich, or adding them to a salad full of lettuce, tomatoes, and goat cheese. Devil some of those free range chicken or duck eggs, and add a healthy meat (grass-fed Angus beef, ostrich or pastured pork) and what a meal! The market is open every Thursday from 9-1 in the parking lot next to the Armory on Morganton Road in Southern Pines.
