Hello All,

What a weekend we've had! Yesterday was our first day of market, and it was quite successful. We sold every vegetable we brought from the farm, and we even purchased some delicious peaches to supplement our CSA baskets. East Lake is a wonderful market, and it was so nice to see some old customers and meet new ones as well. Here are a few pictures from our first day of market:

This is what our table looked like towards the end of the day...

We were so happy to see Pearson Farm again as well as their always delicious peaches that come directly from Peach County (seriously).

I've also been busy making new t-shirts for Fresh Roots. They are now available for $10 each. Right now they are plain cotton t-shirts (available in small, medium and large). We should have some available in organic cotton soon as well as shopping bags with the logos. Check them out!

Who knew a farmer could model??

An lastly, this morning came with a few little surprises... New baby silkies! So far, three have hatched... and they are little poof balls of cuteness. We may get up to 5 babies...

We are very thankful to everyone that came out to market this weekend and supported ELF as well as us. Next week the market is hosting a dog adoption/rescue day at the market- bring your puppy and stop by and see us!

Contact us at if you're interested in a shirt.

Take Care,


  1. hey, that's great news! here's to the start of a wonderful season.

  2. Thanks for the good words about the market. we are glad to have you back as well. Everyone was real concerned about y'all after the floods last year, and we had many folks asking if you were coming back.
    Lotsa love from the Lake. . .
