2 More Indoor Markets!
Veggie Spy & Versatile Vegan
Eat Well, Be Well
Humans have been exploring the healing properties of food for millennia. You can find an array of products at the Market that many folks extol for their health benefits. In recent years, research of these properties has greatly expanded. Reishi mushrooms, for example, have been used as medicine in East Asian nations for hundreds of years to fight infections. Many believe they may boost the immune system, and some people also use them to treat the side effects of chemotherapy and to reduce stress. They are typically dried and then made into a tea. Mayapple Farms and Blue Owl both carry reishi mushrooms, and they are happy to share tips with you!
Calendula is a plant in the daisy family and is often called ”pot marigold” even though it is not related to what we commonly know as marigolds. It may have antimicrobial properties and is often used for treating skin issues such as burns, cuts, and bruises. Historically, it has been used for treating diaper rash, gingivitis, and some ulcers. You can get dried calendula at Foraged & Sown, and Local Grind has calendula salve and lotion bars. Local Grind has a variety of salves for other purposes, as does Honeyrun Farm, where they even have a treatment for ailing pet paws!
Turmeric a spice from the root of the curcuma longa plant, which is in the ginger family. It has a distinctive yellow color due to curcumin, its active ingredient. It has been used in Chinese and Indian traditional medicine for hundreds of years, There is a growing body of research that indicates it may have anti-inflammatory properties, and may also be beneficial for treating muscle soreness, improving memory, and even depression. Get a morning dose of turmeric in the Restore orange juice from Native Cold Pressed!
Are you looking for an evening of relaxation where you can let the stresses of the day fade away? Try a pleasing soak with a Lavender Bath Bomb from Notions and Potions. Or try the Rose, Orange, and Cardamom Bath Soak from Local Grind. And when it’s time for bed, try Blue Owl’s Dream Pillow herbal scent mix in your pillowcase to gently lull you to sleep.

Good news from Franklinton Farms – after a long absence, collard greens, Swiss chard, parsley, and chives are back!
