The General Store


The General Store and Anchor Meadow Farm are teaming up to bring you the inaugural Denton Farmers Market every Wednesday evening from 4:00-7:00pm beginning May 11th and ending August 31st 2022.

The market will begin at the intersection of W. 2nd Street and Lancaster Avenue, run south along the east side of Lancaster Avenue, and then east along the north side of Front Street.

Denton is extremely busy on Wednesday nights with "Burger Night" at the Denton Daily Double and DCAC & Denton Dentonators softball and baseball at the ball fields, so there will be lots going on in our little village! We are excited to bring evenings of food, entertainment, and great Nebraska products to this community, so please help us spread the word!

Thank you to everyone who is making the Denton Farmers Market possible! If you are interested in being a part of one or all of our markets, send us a message! We are looking for vendors, musicians, artists, advertisers, sponsors, or anyone else who would like to be involved!

Visited the general store today & loved it! Several items from local companies/artisans at reasonable prices. There's plenty of seasonal & non-seasonal items, as well as vintage/repurchased & new items - a little something for everything Owners are very friendly & helpful & I can't wait to go back in a couple of months & see what's new πŸ˜€ would definitely recommend ❀
Only a few more hours before Thanksgiving pre-orders will be closed! Share with your friends or family to get in on this so we can cook your holiday sides πŸ™‚

Come learn about the Denton Farmers Market. We love getting input from everyone!

Denton Farmers Market Informational Meeting


Flyers going up tomorrow! We even have a QR code!


We are receiving so many fantastic suggestions from our vendors and the community!

Here are some updates on the Denton Farmers Market:

🌞 We have decided to allow people to advertise their businesses during the markets on the west side of The General Store. Please shoot us a message if you are interested in this high-traffic/visibility location!

🌞 We are allowing vendors who sign up for an entire season to sublease their stalls on market days they are unable to attend. We do not charge any fees if you are unable to attend a market you have signed up for, and we hope this option gives people the ability to work the markets into their schedule with more ease.

🌞 Our second Denton Farmers Market Informational Meeting will be held on Wednesday. Come join us any time from 6:30-8:00pm.

Thank you to everyone for your support. We are so excited!


It is WONDERFUL to see so much interest in our market!


Are you interested in participating in the Denton Farmers Market as a vendor, musician/artist, food truck, or sponsor? We will have two informational meetings on March 30th and April 6th at 6:30pm at The General Store!

Refreshments provided.

Why HempWool is the Healthy Natural Choice for Insulating your New Home

Why HempWool is the Healthy Natural Choice for Insulating your New Home Building a house is one of the most stressful things anybody ever chooses to do, with an endless stream of decisions from selecting the type of floor to the kind of faucets you pick - it's no wonder insulation may be the least of your worries.

Howdy friends!

We (me and my little family) will be ending normal operating hours at the store effective immediately.

With the hempcrete retrofit beginning in May, as well as Farmers Markets beginning May 1st outside of the store, I simply had to reorganize my priorities, and something had to go. Unfortunately the amount of time and money it takes to operate the store in it's current capacity just isn't practical/economical, and I need to focus on these upcoming projects.

The store will be available for pop-ups and small events during March and April. Links to reserve the space/request a farmers market booth will be posted on the store's page in the upcoming weeks, as well as a link to sign up for the upcoming hempcrete workshops.

After the hempcrete retrofit is complete (hoping for early July), we will reopen for regular business, and new vendor applications will be available approximately two months prior to opening. Hempcrete workshops will take place on Saturdays beginning May 7th, and the store will be open during the Sunday Farmers Markets from 10-2 beginning on May 8th for people to stop in and view our progress/talk to experts about the process.

We have been beyond blessed by our friends, vendors, and community. Thank you to everyone who has stood by me/us during this transitional time. We had a wonderful holiday season with all of you, and we are excited for yet another evolution of our wonderful store.

Unfortunately the store will be closed this weekend due to illness (negative Covid test, but still a sick little guy).

However, I have been blessed during this time with individuals willing to run the store for me in the upcoming two weeks, so I'll be posting new/extended hours before Monday!

Stay safe out there everyone!

I finally drove down the road a piece to see Emely Hendl at Anchor Meadow Farm and pick up these three sourdough loaves from Devour - Flavors of the Season.

Small towns.

Small businesses.

Big love.

The loaves are Italian, cinnamon cranberry pecan, and original sourdough, and they are everything that is chewy and good in the world.

Also Emely's store is so dang cute.

Nebraska entrepreneurs make sunglasses with hemp-infused plastic Using a plant-based and biodegradable form of plastic is as much about improving the environment as it is making marketable products, including sunglasses, bowls, guitar picks and more.


The thing about having a 60 year old kerosene furnace (that everyone loves) is that we're always learning new things about how it works. Today, we had to close the store an hour early because it was getting COLD in there. πŸ₯Ά

Not to worry, she's back up and running! πŸ₯°

Come see us tomorrow from 12-6! (We're staying an extra hour for you.)! 😁


Come see us from 9-4 today! We'll have coffee from Nature’s Aroma coffee roasters and donuts from Randy's Donuts!

You. Guys.

Almost five months ago, I started this page.

Five months ago we moved to this amazing village.

A little over three weeks ago, we opened the doors of The General Store.

1000 "likes" and 1100 followers.

Thank you all for making our dreams come true.

We are beyond blessed and so very grateful.

We hear stories all the time about the history of our store. One we've heard a lot is about how the "old men" used to sit around and play cards and games at a table in the back of the store, so we figured it'd be a great idea to put our table in the same place. 😁

Today, I have three handsome young men building dominoes. 😍

We have an excellent selection from Boozy Babes Two Sisters Infusion Co in the store, and everyone is buzzing about these fun and unique gifts! 😍
