Carson and Bees at the Redwood Valley Farmers’ Market

It’s official – Carson and Bees is back at the Redwood Valley Farmers’ Market after a years-long hiatus! The first market of the season was last Sunday, June 15, with a great turnout filled with familiar faces who were glad to have us back.

Please come support us and this excellent market every Sunday until October 12th from 9:30 to 12:30 at Lion’s Park. There’s live music every week and occasional cooking demos using goods from the vendors. Plus, our booth is right next to The Spot which serves awesome coffee and fresh-baked, 100% organic pastries. Or chow down on a breakfast burrito from Fairall’s Farm… dangerous for us since we already feast on these on Saturday mornings at the Ukiah market. Of course you should stock up on veggies and eggs for the week, too. We try to do 100% of our produce shopping at farmers markets and it really is affordable.

Hope to see you there one of these Sundays! Call or e-mail in advance if you’d like to purchase anything bigger than a 1/2 gallon, and we’ll be sure to bring it.

Carson & Bees gives back

We here at Carson & Bees believe in supporting the community that supports us. We also needed to find something to do with all of the sunflower seeds our bees pollinated last year, so we thought up a sunflower seed fundraiser to support local school and community gardens.

We sold these babies for $3 each at Parducci’s Party for the Planet on Saturday 4/19 and Noyo Food Forest’s Earth Day Festival on 4/26. They’re also available at the Ukiah Farmers Market information table every Saturday, and those dollars go toward the EBT Match program.

If you love sunflowers, let us know and we’ll be happy to hook you up with a seed packet or two.

Carson & Bees in the Westside Renaissance Market

Carson & Bees is proud to announce that our honey is now being carried by our favorite local grocer, the Westside Renaissance Market on Clay St in Ukiah.

This year we’ve grown quite a bit, which means we have more honey to go around. If you can’t make it to the “RenMar” (as we affectionately call it), you can also buy Carson & Bees honey at the following locations:

  • Pizza Etc in Redwood Valley
  • Hopper’s Corner Store in Potter Valley
  • Jaxon Keys Winery in Hopland
  • Happy Herb Shop in Ukiah (you can get our bee pollen there, too!)
  • Direct from us (same price as in the store)

Stay tuned for more!
