Area farmer’s markets, shopping events and festivals offer something for everyone, and some vendors combine the sale of their home-grown products with classes or other specialties.
For instance, Baugh’s Market, a popular marketer located near Rusk, hosts events several times a year. Previously, the market owned by Ruthy Baugh and her husband, Jackson Baugh, offered a monthly shopping event, but the couple has decided to change its format to events throughout the year.
Although the farm/market participates in Jacksonville REKO Ring, their products, such as roasted coffees, olives, oils and vinegars, finishing salts and fresh herbs, will also be available at their forthcoming events. They also offer a variety of classes, taught away from the farm and sometimes on-site.
On Aug. 13, Baugh will teach a class at Postmaster’s Coffee, titled, “Ferment Like You Mean It,” focusing on the fermentation and creation of kimchi, sauerkraut, sour dough, water kefir and
