I just want to say that I am so full of gratitude For Fall Line Farms & Local Roots. Their awesome leader Becky Lillywhite, and her amazing volunteers and staff, have enabled so many small local vendors to continue to do what we do and get our product out to our customers. As a vendor, I want you all to know that this organization is just an amazing partner. I cannot begin to tell you how much time and effort they spend to promote us and, most importantly now, coordinate getting our product to customers. If you are quiet because of social distancing, but still want to be of help, please consider offering them help- contact me for details, no customer contact required! Beyond grateful, wish I could tag... but!!! Just thank you FLFLR!

Most of our customers know that Truly Scrump will NOT be at St Stephen's market tomorrow, but just want to spread the word. We will NOT be there- the email list of vendors is incorrect.

Truly Scrumptious is a catering business located in Bon Air, specializing in ready-to-eat dishes using locally grown produce. Most of my ingredients are sourced from local farmers markets, especially St Stephen’s farmers’ market and Birdhouse farmers’ market, or directly from the farms themselves. While my food is not considered diet or low fat, I do try to take a healthy approach minimizing amounts of cream & butter, and whenever possible using whole grains, loads of vegetables and making the most of natural flavors by seasoning with high quality vinegars, oils and spices. I love my foods to be full of flavor as well as nutritious but never “good for you” boring! Truly Scrumptious strives to fill that hole- when you don’t have time to cook from scratch yourself, but still want to eat fresh, eat local and eat healthy. I also operate an event catering business, providing everything from boxed lunches to cocktail receptions and holiday parties. I always design a menu specifically tailored to suit your request and budget. Please feel free to email me at [email protected] or call me at 804-677-0727 with any questions or suggestions.
