Heritage Farm

Winnsboro, TX:  Online Market is Open

Good morning again,

New to the market this week are apples from the The Oren Wooden Apple Orchard in Pikeville, TN. Although, we pride ourselves in all things local, the summer heat had left us with meager fruit selections, so we leapt at the chance to bring these to you fresh from the orchard. They are full of flavor!
Find more Fall favorites such as sweet potatoes & ornamental gourds this week as well. Ten Oaks Farm has added their line of homemade bath products & I can personally testify to how luxurious all these are!

Happy shopping & have a great week!!

Market News

Tomorrow’s holiday always sparks discussions of indigenous peoples and colonization. I’d like to plant an idea with you: think about all of the wonderful indigenous foods of North America, many of which have fallen into obscurity. See if you can find some to add to your diet this fall, even if it’s just to try something new for one single meal. Native plants are almost always a better choice to grow than species and varieties not adapted to our environment, but growers won’t plant them if there’s not a demand. Here’s one interesting list to get you started, and you’ll recognize some of them from the ALG listings throughout the year: 20 Native North American Foods with Stories to Tell.

This week I’ll be traveling out of state, so I’ll be leaving our Thursday market here in the hands of our many capable regular volunteers while I’m gone. However, Doug’s Salmon keeps his fish at my house in a freezer and I bring his sales in to market for him. Since I’ll be gone the fish will not be available to purchase, but the good news is Doug is back from his summer fishing expedition to Alaska and has restocked the freezer, so there will be plenty to go around when I get back.

Thank you so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes Athens such a great area in which to live. We’ll see you on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!

Other Area Farmers Markets

The Athens Farmers Market is open on Saturdays at Bishop Park, and Wednesday evenings downtown at Creature Comforts. You can catch the news on their website. The West Broad Farmers Market is back as well, Saturdays from 9 to 1, and you can watch for weekly news here: The Comer Farmers’ Market is open on Saturday mornings from 9am to noon.

You can learn all about them here: Folks to the east can check out the Hartwell Farmers Market, which starts bright and early on Saturday morning from 7am to noon, and Tuesday afternoons from 11 to 3pm. If you know of any other area markets operating, please let me know.

All of these other markets are separate from ALG (including the Athens Farmers Market) but many growers sell at multiple markets. Please support your local farmers and food producers, where ever you’re able to do so!

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest, and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible!

Magney Legacy Ridge Farm:  CSA #28

Dear CSA-ers,
This week’s preassembled bag will contain Spring Mix, Romaine Head Lettuce, Kale, Eggplant (the last this year), Radishes, Cherry Tomatoes and Acorn Squash (Amish Grown). For those of you placing custom orders, you may do so between now and Tuesday evening on the website at:
This is the last week to order your Farm to Table dinner tickets. If you are a year-round member you are invited to come for free. We are gearing up and finalizing details to our menu this week. Here are our plans currently: We will have gluten free options. Ray and I are making my Grandmothers marinade with local honey for Flank Steaks which Ray will grill for us that evening. I will be making salad with our wonderful Spring Mix and our own veggies. Caroline will be making a Butternut Squash Bisque. Swiss Chard will be one of our veggie sides. Hannah is coming home next weekend and we are going to experiment with an apple and kohlrabi pie. This weekend I have been raiding our local thrift shops to get enough dishes for our event. I thought this might be difficult, but it has turned out to be enjoyable adventure. The mismatched place settings for our dinner should make the tables quaint and fun.
Some history: When we farmed in Georgia, our Farm to Table was one of our beloved events. Since we rented land at that time, we did not have a kitchen on the farm. So, we had to use some ingenuity and repurposed a camper trailer as a resource for kitchen needs. It also provided the electricity to keep crock pots warm. The meat and veggies were grilled. These are fond memories for me, as we prepared food and dined under the twinkle lights in Augusta with the farm as ambiance. I am so looking forward to making new memories with YOU, my Farmily, here in Kentucky. We hope that you will join us on November 1st to come tour our farm and have a family style dinner with us. Tickets will go out in the mail at the end of this week. Or if you have a bag of veggies delivered, then they will be attached to your bag.
As always, we thank you and your family for your support of our farm. We wish you all a wonderful week and look forward to seeing you on Thursday.
Angela and the Magney Legacy Ridge Farm Team

Fresh Harvest, LLC:  Fresh Harvest for October 13th

Market News

A lot of you knew the 2nd line of Chestnuts Roasting… – “Jack Frost nipping at your okra". I guess it was a premonition since we received a dusting of frost this morning. The okra is currently like a 7 foot stick with a flower or pod on top. I think that it survived the frost due to its height. Chestnuts form Caney Fork Farm are offered again this week.

Amazing amount of produce available this week. Rocky Glade Farm is back with lots of interesting veggies. Their many types of radishes stood out to me. The Hershbergers have lots of October beans which is a shell bean that is very flavorable. Dozen Bakery has listed the ever popular Apple Galette. I may have to get one in order to satisfy my hunger after watching episodes of The Great British Baking Show. As the credits roll, I’m left wondering why aren’t there pies or cakes in my house?

When I was growing up, there were times when I cleaned out our kitchen pantry. I would find baking potatoes hiding in there with gigantic sprouts. At some point I realized that potatoes were treated with something to keep them from sprouting in the grocery store. I was never curious enough to research what was being done to keep the potatoes from sprouting. This week I finally Googled: why don’t potatoes sprout in the store? The answer is: Chlorpropham. It doesn’t seem to be completely harmless for those of us who want potatoes in the spring.

Lots of fine meat items from Wedge Oak and Bear Creek Farms.

Dozen Bakery cookies and breads, eggs, granola, honey, and coffee are all in abundance.

You have until Tuesday night to place your order.
Thanks for your support, and I will see you on Wednesday!

If you need to text me, my number is 615-838-0428.
