Market Saturday August 15

Smiling Coyote Farm will be on the square in Canyon, TX this Saturday morning from 8:00 am to Noon enjoying a lovely late summer day, seeing our friends and neighbors and bringing you our natural garden produce, artisanal spice blends, and Coyote Tea.

Look for this guy at the Canyon Farmers Market

Garden is looking great so we'll have fresh herbs and vegetables. Tomatoes (Sweet 100 and Roma), young, tender yellow crookneck squash, and a selection of several pepper varieties are among the expected vegetable offerings and there could be more.

Roma tomatoes

Fresh herbs include basil, parsley (flat leaf), chives (two kinds), marjoram, sage, thyme, and oregano. Fresh herbs have a different flavor profile than dried and these guys are really cranking out some flavor right now. Great in marinades for meat and vegys, salads, and cooked with vegetables like summer squash. Try a sprig or two in your favorite dish and, if you make pizza at home, you really (really) need some fresh oregano, marjoram, and, perhaps, some basil.

We'll have the Coyote teas. Occasional Mention is based on blended black teas with orange zest and spices. Kick It Back is an smooth herbal blend of chamomile, spearmint and peppermint. Both come either in individual tea bags or the big, reusable muslin bags that make 6 cups.

20 tea bags, boxed

Coyote herb and spice blends will be in the house. House Creole, Sizzling Southwest, Old #18 Chili Powder, Provencal (France), Belle Erba (Italy), Garam Masala (India), and The Five Elements (China).

Selection of spice / herb blends

Keeping and Storing: Herbs and Spices

We put up a new page covering proper storage of spices, herbs, and blends. It's here:


We stand with Alice Waters and Jacques Pépin.

Short and to the point: It's not really the "fast food mentality" we're celebrating by gardening, farming, and participating in farmers markets. We're not a part of the culture where standards, and expectations, are consistently lowered in a flight to rock bottom. We believe cooking isn't a competition--isn't confrontational and neither is learning about food, its production, or preparation. ~ Smiling Coyote Farm.

Spring Prep

Yes, it's February: Cold, dry, February. But, things are stirring at Smiling Coyote Farm.

Seeds are starting in flats, prep for planting is underway, planning is ongoing, and the Spring garden season is just around the corner. Our first Farmers Market meeting is the end of the month. It's time to get moving.

We'll be publishing our plant list soon. If you have a suggestion or request, let us know so we can get it in the ground for you.
