Fill the Freezer

With only 7 Saturdays left before the end of the shopping season, the Apex Farmer’s Market shopping season I mean, it is time to start asking my favorite protein farmers about bulk purchases before the end of season and off season sales at their farms.

Carolina Catch Seafood – Seafood, part of a coastal catcher’s cooperative, possible off season sales at a location in Holly Springs

Heston Farms – Beef, family farmers, will do off season sales either at their farm in Roxboro, NC or possibly meeting in Durham so it is still a good idea to stock up

Little River Eco Farm – Pork (they also sell chicken, eggs, beef, turkeys), off season sales are unlikely so I will be placing a bulk order for the Mexican Chorizo and Sweet Italian Sausage that are mainstays in my kitchen

On a related note, the Apex Farmers Market is trying to go year round, possibly one market a month during the off season, but they need an enclosed winter location.  Fingers crossed they can find something!
