I had been hearing little blips all week about the Trolley Stop Market to be opened this spring by Jill and Keith Forrester of Whitton Farms.
Yesterday, Jill put up an extensive post on the Whitton Farms blog about their plans.
It sounds fantastic.
From the blog:
The Trolley Stop Market will serve breakfast & lunch, and our menu will feature farmers and food artisans from across the MidSouth. Our shelves, crates, and bins will house local & certified organic produce, grains, nuts, mushrooms, fruit and more. Locally & humanely raised beef, poultry, pork, freshwater fish, and seafood will be in abundance too! A wonderful assortment of freshly baked goods, and desserts will be readily available as well. I can already smell the REAL strawberry muffins coming out of the oven!!! Come on April!!!
Another feature, which I'm really excited about, is that the market will serve as a CSA pick-up point Monday through Friday.
