NEW FERMENTED ITEMS!

Kraut Kvass, often referred to as Kraut Juice is a fermented beverage made from cabbage. It is tart, tangy, and its flavor very much resembles that of sauerkraut. It provides the same benefits of regular sauerkraut, but in a convenient liquid form that is much milder on the stomach. Loaded with nutrients and naturally occurring probiotics, it acts as a natural aid to digestion and assists the body's natural ability to heal many digestive and other health issues. It is highly recommended for those on GAPS diet. Ingredients: Purified Water, Organic Green Cabbage, Organic Apples, Himalayan Pink Salt


Awesome Sauce - Kimchi Brine

We made our awesome Kimchi and had lots of beautiful brine left after we packaged it. It is a thick, spicy and very flavorful brine that still has chunks of napa cabbage in it! It is absolutely delicious on rice, meats, eggs and just as a dipping sauce. It is also a wonderful soup base. Just like our Kimchi the sauce is living and vibrant, full of naturally occurring probiotics, never heated, and as with all of our ferments, its flavor continues to evolve with time. Ingredients: Napa Cabbage, Cucumbers*, Daikon Radish*, Scallions*, Apples*, Onions*, Garlic*, Ginger*, Rice Flour*, Himalayan Pink Salt, Gochugaru Red Pepper Flakes, Sugar* (*Organic)


Kimchi - Cucumber (Kimchi Style Pickles)

Our Kimchi is living and vibrant, never heated, and as with all of our ferments, the flavor continues to evolve with time. Wonderfully delicious right out of the jar, or on your favorite sandwich, salad or soup it is a delicious, nutritious addition to any meal! Ingredients: Cucumbers*, Scallions*, Apples*, Onions*, Garlic*, Ginger*, Rice Flour*, Himalayan Pink Salt, Gochugaru Red Pepper Flakes, Sugar* (*Organic)

Essential Oils are available in larger sizes

Essential Oils from Southern Essentials are available in larger sizes besides 1/2 ounces listed on the market. We only listed half ounces just so there are not 200 listings for essential oils. :-)


If you ever need a larger size (1 oz or larger) please contact Mark at southernessentials@live.com and he can quote you a price and we can add to your order.

How do I add delivery to my order? - Go to market website (www.suwanee.locallygrown.net) and add *DELIVERY* to your order. I will appear in your cart as an item. Make sure your address on file is correct. We will use this as your delivery address.

How does it work? – We will deliver your ordered items to your address on file between 1pm to 7pm on Thursdays. Please leave out a cooler for your perishable items (milk, meats, veggies, etc). If you have perishable items but no cooler we can NOT leave your items. Fresh Harvest produce baskets already have cooler packs in them so you don’t need to leave out a cooler for that. Our delivery driver will leave your paid invoice in your mailbox and will note the time of delivery. We cannot take specific time requests and this time.
