BLACK FRIDAY GREAT DISCOUNTS NOV 25 and SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY NOV 26
Owners of Trinity Haymarket will be on vacation Aug 1-5 and our store will be closed to the public. We will reopen on Saturday Aug. 6th.
After 18 long months, Trinity Haymarket is excited to once again host a POP UP Market. We learned about these back in 2020. If you are not aware of a POP UP Market, it's like a thumbnail edition of a regualr scheduled Farmer's Market. However the key differences are that there is a nice variety of vendors from artists, craftspersons, foodies (food makers), and specialty small businesses. Our event lasts only four hours and is happening on November 6 from 10 am to 2 pm. In addition to the vendors, we hope to attract new customers to our farm store whi
Haymarket Thoughts for the Week: WEEK #6
1) Duties of the worker bee (female) include: nurturing and feeding the bee larvae, feeding the queen, making and capping the honey into a comb, foraging sometimes miles away from the hive to collect pollen and nectar to make the honey and keep the colony alive.
2) Never underestimate the abilities of a FEMALE.
For years, we (the bio-farming / eco-farming community) have been steering gardeners and livestock owners away from processed and chemical laden feeds and garden ammendments. Our purpose has been to awaken peoples' awareness of soil health and the root causes of so many of our modern ailments. Sometimes our ideas are listened to, but more often not.
We were shocked and excited on May 25th to receive an email from one of the co-editors of Edible Dallas & Fort Worth magazine to let us know the article that co-editor Terri Taylor wrote about our farm/feed store Trinity Haymarket was one of the top 5 finalists for an Eddy Award. The EDDys celebrate editorial excellenct among 90 publications of Edible communities across the US and Canada.. 5 finalists are selected from a panel of over 50 esteemed judges.
It seems as though everything is bursting with joy this time of year in North Texas. A sure sign is the noisy wren outside the bedroom window letting every creature within hearing distance know that his territory is not to be shared. Mr.Wren and his mate set up housekeeping in an old child's watering can hanging underneath the front porch eaves. In earlier times, it was commonly known that a wren nesting near or on some part of your home was very good luck. I hope this remaines true in 2016!
After 2 years of planning, Trinity Haymarket is excited to be putting on their 1st Oak CLiff Coop Snoop Tour November 7th from 11 am to 4 pm. Purchase of the Passport Maps is $10 per adult and kids are free. The Maps can only be purchased at our store located at Dallas, 75207 the day of the event. Our store will be open from 9 am to 3 pm on Saturday Nov. 7th.
We are starting our Saturday morning classes again now that Fall is around the corner. 2 classes are scheduled for September. Raising backyard chickens on Sept 12 and Fall Gardening--IT's not too late + benefits of Essential Oils. will be held on Sept 19th. Both classes start at 10am. For some urban farmers in North Texas we got too much rain this Spring and sadly many spring gardens were awash. However, there is still time to get some seeds and transplants in the ground for a fall garden.
We get the question all the time....."my hen's gone broody; what do I do?" This response is definitely our personal opinion and may not be the answer you're looking for. So as not to put our cart before our horse, let's define why we keep heritage breeds as opposed to commercial egg laying machines. For the most part, here at our place, we see it as part of our mission to promote the keeping of breeds that have graced the door yards of North America and western Europe for hundreds of years.
