Heldeberg Market is on a roll!

Yum :)

This week was major!  Thank you, so much, to all of our steady customers and all of our new customers.  Our customer retention rate was already better than 90% going into Week 6, which tells me we are doing something right!

Word has caught on about our Localvore movement, and I have been invited to the News Channel 13 studios for an interview, airing live, this Saturday morning on their 8:00 a.m. weekend news program.  Be sure to tune in to hear the latest on the Heldeberg Market!

What’s new for Week Seven?

Lettuce is back (recovering after a couple of scorching weeks), radishes galore, pork cutlets, pork kabob, and pork spare ribs, rack of lamb, additional grass-fed ground beef for amazing summertime burgers, new herbs, and wool butter hand cream just to name a few!  Check our the inventory for this week available online at www.HeldebergMarket.com/store for the full low-down.
