Fresh Cut Flowers and Fresh Fruit Juices
Two of our newest Farmers. Enjoy the luxury of fresh flowers around the house all week! Their small mixed bunches are only $3.50, great deal! The Casablanca Lilies are spectacular and last almost two weeks. I have a bunch in my house right now that still look amazing and smell marvelous. My house is freezing though and that makes a big difference in the longevity of the interior florals….
Farm Fresh Eggs from Gama Farms
If you haven’t purchased the eggs from Gama Farms yet, don’t pass them up this week! You cannot believe the difference in flavor. According to regulation “eggs must be packed within 21 days of lay, and would expire 51 days from lay.” I would rather have eggs that are a couple of days old, you? You can find the eggs near the bunglows and they also have great shallots!
Handmade Soaps, Lotions and Oils
Really luxurious smelling treats for your skin. Visit their stand by the benches!
Chess, Books, Recycling and Trash
As always, Project Oasis Chess Club will have the chess boards are set up from 10:00am-12:noon. Stop by and play on the clock or not, join the club!
Bixby Books is back from a book buying journey with treasures. As always Sean has a terrific selection of books on various subjects with a canny focus on gardening, cooking, chess, and vintage.
Hughes Goes Green is collecting and recycling your bottles and cans! Bring them to the entrance of the market…look for the recycle bins.
The Depot for Creative Reuse is on Elm and 3rd street in downtown Long Beach and is coming out the market every Sunday with few little crates of trash for you to get inspired to create a treasure. They will be there weekly, and beginning in February will host a make and take project on the 3rd Sunday of each month.
See you at the market!
