Weekly Fresh Sheet
Make sure to get on our mailing list (e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org) to get weekly fresh sheets which feature, not only available produce in season, but dairy, breads and value-added products sourced from local farmers. “Food to go” from the 21 Acres Kitchen is also available each day in the Market. Items change daily and could include soups, salads, sandwiches, main dishes and more.
In addition to fresh product, the 21 Acres Market sells flour, eggs, cheeses, dried beans, whole grains and other staples.
A sourcing plan is in place that provides products that the local community needs and that farmers can provide in reliable quantities. The fact that the 21 Acres Market is small, means that we can provide special items grown by area farmers who are not producing large volumes and wholesaling regularly to other much bigger stores. 21 Acres is committed to paying farmers fair prices and being flexible in our needs so we can take advantage of working with producers who are growing the most beautiful and flavorful farm product available. This will likely mean that it will make sense for us to source things to offer customers that other grocers cannot. Each week will showcase some very special things.
The Market features wholesome foods grown in Washington State such as:
• locally grown produce
• fresh eggs, milk, cheese and butter
• a wide assortment of flours and grains including several unique gluten-free flours
• artisan products like grapeseed oil and apple cider vinegar
• bread made with local grains
• raw honey
• dried goods such as nuts and beans
• and so much more.
