Local organic food market has Native American roots

A Lutz farmer’s market didn’t always sell organic fresh food.

The family who owns and operates Cheyenne’s Country Thangs used to own a construction company, but back when the economy took a dive, they began spending more and more time in their backyard gardens.

They eventually started selling what they were growing, teamed up with other growers and their new business took off.

Market members can get great deals on meat and vegetables, and it’s also open to the public.

One of the owners said she had been gardening since the age of five. Her knowledge was passed down to her from her Native American grandfather. The business was named after her granddaughter, Cheyenne.

Charley paid a visit to learn more about what the market had to offer.
