Two Belles Southern Pound Cakes Returns!

I just returned from Charleston, South Carolina and one of the best things I noticed about the South is their amazing food. The butter, the fish, the all-natural ingredients--they just don't skimp on anything good. And that's the way I like it.

So, it makes me (and hopefully you, too!) really happy that Two Belle's Southern Pound Cakes returns THIS Thursday, August 29th, to the Ballston Farmers Market!

Sold in slices (for only $2.00!) and whole cakes, these pound cakes are baked by fantastic southern gals who know their pound cake.

Egglants & Radishes & More ... Oh, My!

Wow. Have you ever seen radishes so red or eggplants so purple? They look almost too good to be true! But, we can assure you, everything about the veggies from Barajas Produce are authentic, healthy and fresh off the farm!

Stock up on some fresh produce TOMORROW from 3-7 at the Ballston Farmers Market.

Jimmy Potter's Workshop - Cactus Fun!

Man. It seems like the only plants that will grow in this NOVA heat lately are cacti. Good thing the Ballston Farmers Market has the cactus guy himself--Jimmy Potter's Workshop!

Swing by the Ballston Farmers Market this Thursday from 3:00-7:00 and buy a cactus or two for your office, home, or even garden--this 103-degree weather won't bother these prickly plants! Simply water these bad boys once a week and watch them blossom.

What a Success!

What a great day at the July 3rd Ballston Farmers Market. The weather was so pretty and there were tons of people out shopping for healthy goodies.

And special thanks goes out to Arlington Virginia Network's, Food for Thought, for spending the day with us. We had fun answering all of your questions and just hanging out. I'll keep everyone posted as to when the show will air.

Now, check out some pics from yesterday's Market!
