- I ran into Dewayne and Cathy Mackey last Sunday and YES! they are still making homemade ice cream for the Tailgate Markets. Dewayne said he would bring Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream to the Weaverville Tailgate Market this Wednesday (tomorrow). My daughter’s favorite Starbucks flavor is very similar, so I can only imagine how tasty Dewayne’s ice cream will be. Hopefully I will taste it in real life.
- Other Weaverville Market (Wednesdays) notes:
Zeke and Courtney Filiss of Long Valley Farm have a new baby girl, Abby Iris Filiss. Congratulations! Zeke also attends the West Asheville Tailgate Market on Tuesdays and possibly the Madison County Market in Mars Hill on Saturdays.
A few special finds this week…apples, candy roasters (make the best pumpkin pies), sweet potatoes, and goat pet milk.
- North Asheville: My friends, Cathy and Andy Bennett of Doubletree Farmwill be returning to the North Asheville Tailgate
Market this Saturday, September 24th, with their super homegrown & homemade sorghum molasses. This is something you MUST seek out. Imagine your pancakes & waffles topped with sweet, syrup-y sorghum molasses. Try sorghum on your biscuits or cornbread for dessert…very simple and so good. Can’t beat that flavor addition in your baked beans either and it’s a must for making gingerbread cookies. If you miss them this Saturday, they will be back at the North Asheville Market on October 22 and possibly on some additional dates.
- The Black Mountain Tailgate Market has extended its logo contest deadline to Saturday, September 24th.
