Like I was saying, after Owen’s Bagel & Deli, we headed to the Atherton Market across the street. Our main reason for going was to pick up some items that I ordered from Windy Hill Farm. Windy Hill Farm is based in New London, NC and they humanely raise their animals without the use of hormones or antibiotics. They sell pork, lamb, beef, chicken, and eggs. You can usually buy their products from the Atherton Market & Mill and the Yorkmont Farmers Market.
The cool thing about Windy Hill Farm is that you can pre-order on their website and pick it up at one of the markets on Saturday. Or, you can pick up your order through the week at various other locations through the Buyers Club Pickups. They currently have pickups in Salisbury, Lake Norman, Concord Mills, and Albemarle. If that’s not convenient enough, then I don’t know what is.
Here are my goods:
BEEF. It’s what’s for dinner.
- Special Steak sampler – various cuts
- Pork Chops
- Mild Sausage
I also got a salad mix from Harmony Gardens and Kale from Mt. Pleasant
I also tasted the best Italian Ice in my life from The Frozen Melon. Seriously, it was life changing.
I had the cantaloupe ice.
Now, this is the definition of refreshing.
Next on my list to try, is the tangerine!
When I got home, I made a salad with the greens I bought and added some Lavender and Fennel Goat Cheese that I found at Earth Fare. I think most of my friends are aware of the goat cheese obsession I have and some (ahem, Vee) think I need an intervention. You can’t stop me!
You can always tell a farm fresh egg from a store-bought egg because the yolks always seem to be more orange than yellow.
Mmmm, get thee to the market.
