Please include item numbers or defining words if there's any chance of confusion on your order. ie, and organic version and a regular version, or sweet cinnamon chips vs. cassis chips, powder vs. bark/root, Organic vs Non-Organic, etc. Every order will be charged $6 for shipping and be responsible for review of their order before processing and pick up.

Contact me at if you have any questions.

We order as a groups to receive 15% discount from Mountain Rose Herbs on all items, as well as a larger discount on bulk herbs when we get to a large volume, up to 30% off of dried herbs and teas when we order in 1# sizes.

Farmers' Markets

There is a fabulous farmers' market at the Springs Preserve every Thursday morning, from 10-1pm. Get there early for best choice of produce and parking spaces! There are truly local farmers selling their goodies at the market. Some have small farms in the Las Vegas Valley. Others are just over the hill in Boulder City, Overton or Pahrump.

There are also magical treats that I'd bet you've never heard of (Buddha's hand, anyone?) from Southern California. My friend Janet, who has a stand at the market too, says the market is all about trying something new.

If vegetables don't tickle your fancy, you can't say no to a baguette. Or fresh pasta? Or to locally roasted coffee beans?

And now.... there is a farmers' market downtown, as well on Friday morning from 9-2pm. I saw this guy selling coffee beverages there the first week.

Now you don't have an excuse! Go check out the local food scene.

Downtown Frontier order for April

The spreadsheet for the Downtown Frontier order is and ready for your order! Be sure to check out the sales catalog. I will place the order on Sunday, April 1. If you need more time, just send me and email.
Happy shopping!
