Greetings!

We're looking forward to seeing all ya'll this weekend after some really cold weather in these parts and even worse down east. I took a trip to Sneads Ferry to visit a dear friend who had a TIA on Saturday and I wanted to check on him unannounced. I got up at 4:30 AM and hit the road soon after. I got through Raleigh at 7 AM with no issues and thanked the Lord I wasn't coming to town from the other direction where traffic was backed up for miles and miles causing me to quietly utter several expletives.

As I got closer and closer to the coast the temperature dropped a little and once I left I-40 eastbound the ground was covered with snow and the shoulders of the country roads had piles of snow the scrappers had left. My bride's clean car was soon not very clean, but the trip was a nice one as the sun was shining and snow was melting. It was a pleasant ride and my friends were quite surprised when I arrived. My old friend was adjusting nicely to his recent event and I believe he will recover completely.

Below is our planned schedule for the remainder of the winter. This is subject to change if brutal weather makes buying and selling seafood impossible. Stay tuned.


We are located Friday noon: 2301 Sandy Ridge Rd, (Fri,)Budding Artichoke and Saturday, 9 AM at 2913 Sandy Ridge Rd, (Sat.) Colfax, NC 27235 Cheerwine. (across from the Farmer's Market). We are located in Summerfield at 7403 Summerfield Road and open for business on Friday at noon and 9 AM on Saturdays. In Mooresville, we're always at Josh's Farmer's Market, 189 Williamson Road, Mooresville, 1:00 PM on Fridays and 9 AM on Saturdays.

Many Blessings to you and yours,
Landon

Some hot food for some cold weather.
Oyster Stew
Smoked Trout Pate
Shrimp Cakes
Salmon
 Our salmon is cut from whole fish into huge fillets which are the sides of the fish without bones. We cut these sides into collars, center cut strips, wide cuts, and tails. 
Collars are the fattiest of all the cuts and are best for sushi mi and sushi. Tails are the least fatty and are best for medium, medium well, and well-done salmon. Strips and wide cuts are best for grilling, broiling and sauteing.
Please specify which cuts you prefer.
THIS WEEK'S QUOTATION

GARLAND FULCHER'S CRAB MEAT
I've spoken with Jeff Styron, owner of Fulcher's, to see what our prospects for crab meat are during this winter. He tells me the supplies of local crabs are very small thus a very high price for local crab meat. Since this has been an issue in the Carolinas for a while and he understands retailers like us will have a very difficult trying to sell crab meat upwards of $40 per pound. During our time in business we've seen prices rise from the teens through the twenties with no limit on prices for fresh local product. Jeff has reestablished his connections in Mexico to have the crabs picked there, processed, and shipped to us here. This meat is very similar to our blue crabs here so we've decided to ride this out with him.
