LAST WEEK OF SALE! Organic Sweet Potato Hummus (Original, Spicy, Za'atar)

This is the final weekend A Good Gut Feeling will have their hummus on sale! If you haven't tried A Good Gut Feeling's organic sweet potato hummus, now is a perfect time! They are on sale for $4.99 each! It's similar in texture to traditional hummus, however, prepared with Organic Sweet Potatoes in place of Legumes. Enjoy the creaminess of the tahini paired with the Garlic and Lemon Juice which balances out this amazing flavor combo! This delicious masterpiece comes in THREE flavors, Original, Spicy, and Za'atar.


School snack alert! This goes great with some carrot sticks, cucumbers, celery, bell peppers or crackers/pita as a healthy snack.


Order this weekend in the **ON SALE** section of website https://suwanee.locallygrown.net/market/index/79671

New flavor & texture of Lemon Sourdough Muffins from Azuki’s Kitchen!

Your feedback really makes a difference to our vendors and farmers!!


Miki thanks you for your feedback and has improved on the flavor and texture of her lemon muffins. Most comments were it was a little bitter but you liked that it wasn't overly sweet. The new taste and texture of Lemon Sourdough Muffins will be ready to order this weekend! She’ll provide samples at pick up next week too.

Pastured Chicken Backs ON SALE

Back In Time Farm put their pasture raised, soy free, chicken back on sale just in time for soup season! These are perfect to use to make your own healing chicken bone broth. Start making your bone broth now and freeze so you'll have plenty ready for soups and stews this winter!


I suggest you roast the bones, pick off meat, first. Here's a link to some recipes

Carrell Farms on the market weekly going forward!

I'm so happy to announce that Carrell Farms will have their pasture raised buffalo, lamb, and alpaca on the market EVERY week going forward! Water buffalo is a delicious substitute for any beef recipe! Alpaca meat is like pork without the pig. It is a lean meat and has the lowest cholesterol of any meat you’ll find, even skinless chicken. Bone broths, steaks, ground, and sausages are available.

Build out Update

Update: More progress this week! Bathroom walls and HVAC installed! New website is almost done and I hope to launch in the next couple of weeks. I'll continue to keep you all posted and give everyone plenty of notice before we move. As of right now we are probably still a couple of months out depending on how fast permits will be issued...
