Come browse our market for a locally-sourced selection of fresh produce, grass-fed meat, homegrown herbs, warm baked goods, all-natural soaps, fresh-cut flowers, hot coffee and live acoustic music. We are family, kid, and dog-friendly. Visit us this weekend!

Kale Yeah!


Kale Yeah!

Sandy Watson

It’s winter time and that means Kale! Try out this Apple and Kale side dish (with or without the bacon for you veggie-only connoisseurs ) using Jones Orchard’s Arkansas Black apples, kale from one of our produce vendors, and bacon from one of our many meat vendors!


  1. 4 slices bacon
  2. 1 onion, sliced
  3. 1 apple, sliced
  4. 1 medium bunch kale, thick stems removed and leaves torn into bite-size pieces  
  5. kosher salt and black pepper
  6. 1 tablespoon cider vinegar


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool, then crumble.
  2. Add the onion and apple to the drippings (or to heated coconut or olive oil) in the skillet and cook until tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the kale, season with ¾ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper, and cook, tossing occasionally, until tender, 8 to 10 minutes more. Mix in the bacon and vinegar.
  3. Serve alongside a roasted chicken and/ or along with other veggie dishes!

Bon Appetit! Buon Appetito! Enjoy your (Farm Fresh) meal!
