The Chelsea Farmers Market takes place each Saturday at the Palmer parking lot from 8 a.m.-1 p.m.
The winter market begins on Nov. 5 and takes place in the Washington Street Education Center.
Chelsea Update is profiling vendors at the Chelsea Farmers Market and this week, it’s Fluffy Bottom Farms.
Fluffy Bottom Farms is a local family farm in its second year at the Chelsea Farmers Market, and it sells its products all over Michigan.
The owners are Kelli Conlin, who grew up on a farm, and Angie Martel. They both subscribe to their company’s slogan “the best thing you’ll eat today.”
When Conlin was living in New York, she met an elderly Italian man in her Brooklyn neighborhood, who taught her how to make cheese. When she and her family moved back to Chelsea, they began their artisanal creamery.
“We are mindful of the carbon footprint,” said Martel. “Our cheese has a fermentation process that requires lots of care and time.”
Fluffy Bottom Farms sells cheese and yogurt with no preservatives that come from Jersey cows and sheep.
