Our yummy lettuce and spinach will make a great salad, topped with hard-boiled eggs,and you can also enjoy cookies for dessert; a whole meal from our market products.

We have everything from soaps & lotions to herbs & spices to laying pullets (young hens). Come browse through our listings!

What a beautiful week it has been! Seems like spring has finally sprung for real! It’s time to plant some of our new perennial offerings or red azaleas from Dogwood Valley to brighten your garden. You can also pick up a hanging basket or a houseplant to put out on your porch – just keep an eye on the nighttime temperature for a couple more weeks.

The market has lots of eggs, including duck eggs; soaps & lotions; dried herbs & teas; local honey, lettuce, & spinach. And Wayne Diller’s popcorn will make a great healthy dessert.

See you on Thursday afternoon for pickup! Remember that the market closes for ordering at noon on Wednesday. Look around at the merchandise available at Square Books Round Cookies, our host store, when you come to pick up your market order.

This Week's Market is Open for Shopping!


Ah… the good ole summertime. It may rain, it may snow, yet this April – but today was glorious, fabulous, beautiful summertime. I hope you were able to enjoy it a bit outside.

The perennials think it’s summertime too, and there will be several new ones on the market this evening. I just reluctantly dragged myself in from the greenhouse and haven’t had time to make them available just yet. There’s nothing quite like a salad made with fresh locally grown lettuce and spinach, as those who ordered this week can attest. Cookies, granola, eggs,dried herbs & spices, honey, bath & beauty products, and several handmade craft items round out the offerings.

When you come to pick up your order this week, don’t forget to look around at the merchandise available at Square Books Round Cookies, our host store. See you on Thursday afternoon for pickup! Don’t forget the market closes for ordering at noon on Wednesday.

Welcome to Open Market at Manchester Locally Grown Market!


We received sad news this week. Guy Bixler has passed away. He was the father of Natasha Brooks of Triple B Farms; and grandfather of Brenden Brooks of Little Raven Woodworks, and Grace & Ruth Brooks of Brooks Girls Cookie Creation.

Spring has still not decided whether she wants to stay or leave, and many of our spring vegetables are a little hesitant to make a commitment to the market just yet. Keep watching! As soon as the weather improves, we’ll have lots of yummy green things for sale. The perennials and hanging baskets at Dogwood Valley are getting bigger every day, and a few new ones are on the market. The lengthening daylight produces lots of eggs this time of year, and we still have the winter offerings of honey, soaps, & lotions. This week we also have for the first time wooden toy cars by Brenden Brooks, a talented young man who owns Little Raven Woodworks.

Come check us out!

Have a blessed Easter! He is risen!

The Market is Open!


Good evening, & welcome to a new week at Manchester Locally Grown market. This week, please welcome Little Raven Woodworks, by Brenden Brooks, who makes homemade wooden toys. I can’t wait to see the items he will be listing!

We have a good assortment of very early greenhouse-grown spring vegetables. I don’t know about you, but I’m hungry for some good salad!

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has added a flame violet hanging basket and several beautiful Easter planter centerpieces. A few new perennials and herbs are on the list this week as well.

Soaps, lotions, local honey (so good to boost our immune system), lots of local free-range eggs, cookies being sold to raise money to help pay for gymnastics competitions, dried herbs & spices, Elvish cloaks, & baby moccasins are just some of the things on the market this week. Check here for this week’s listing. Thank you for supporting your local farmers and craftspeople.

Wow! Happy summer! Have you noticed how our weather can swing from winter to summer in the space of a few days? (sometimes a few hours) I worked outside today in a sleeveless top, for the first time this season. For those who know me, I was not even wearing a jacket!

We are still in “winter mode” with lots of dried herbs & spices, and bath & beauty products; as well as baked goods & honey. Grundy Greens’ spring greens & Frontier Family Farm’s spinach are available in quantity. Don’t forget Wayne Diller’s popcorn for a healthy & delicious dessert. The daffodils are done at Dogwood Valley, but there are some new hanging baskets & houseplants, as well as a new perennial or two, on the market this week.
