The Chelsea Farmers Market is open from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Palmer Parking lot every Saturday.
Chelsea Update is profiling vendors from this market and this week it’s Dave’s Honey.
Beeswax, honeystix, organic raw apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, Dave’s health drink, honey comb, and pure honey are among the choices of products you can get at Dave’s Honey.
Dave Jebb keeps his bees on an organic clover and wild flower field on his small farm in Saline.
“I’ve done this for 42 years,” said Jebb. “It’s honey bottled the old fashioned way – by hand.”
Jebb moved from San Diego to Saline a year ago.
“I like the people here,” he said. “They’re open to organic, healthy living, and they ask how the bees are doing. That says a lot about people in Chelsea.”
Jebb invites you to stop by to learn all the health benefits of honey. Ask him about his first novel, which he is selling, an action adventure novel called “The Thirteenth Time Zone.”
Below is the list of vendors who are expected to be there. Please keep in mind that sometimes the vendors aren’t able to attend the market and that planned products are not available.
