Statesboro Market2Go:  Order Before Midnight!


Market2Go is pleased to announce some new products this week!

In produce, we’ve got some fabulous figs from Ma’s Country Pantry, a new robust radish mixture from Better Fresh Farms that contains three different varieties, and plenty of peaches from both Jacobs Produce and Ogeechee Peaches that are perfect for cobblers and canning! Plus, there’s still one rattlesnake watermelon up for grabs, and though it may be a bit smaller than the ones before it, it’s just as flavorful as any giant!

After you’ve had your fruits and veggies, check out the banana cakewitch that’s new from 4 & 20 bakers – that’s cream cheese icing sandwiched between banana cake slices. They come in a set of two, but it’s okay if you don’t feel like sharing, we promise we won’t tell! :)

Check out the new recipes – one for a Fig & Honey Smoothie, as well as this recipe for Georgia Shrimp and Radish Salad.

Place your order before midnight for pickup on Thursday.

Thank you for supporting your local farmers and vendors!

Champaign, OH:  Like A Rolling Stone


How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home…
(Bob Dylan)

We always want you to think of the market as your direction home…as your local compass. Your oasis, weekly, that brings you to the light and love.

Lately, to keep me sane, grounded, and in my always positive state, I have been revisiting some of my oldest books, lyrics of songs that have meaning to me, and music documentaries…

This song is always on constant replay for me.

Today is Tuesday, the market closes, tonight, at 8pm, and we want you to find your way home…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Champaign, OH:  Bat Box Information!


As noted on the website of Bat Conservation International, bats are: important, threatened, misunderstood, and everywhere in the world. In this area, the most common species are known as the little brown bat and the big brown bat. Their importance lies in their consumption of flying insects like the mosquito, and their pollination of fruit trees. And they are fascinating creatures as well, being the only mammals capable of sustained flight. We don’t want them in our houses or attics, so give them homes of their own by putting up bat boxes.

The bat boxes sold by Oberly Bros Farm on the Virtual Market are constructed of Western Cedar, and based on a design recommended by the Ohio Division of Wildlife. One side a cedar board is rough (unsanded), and that side faces inward to provide a surface on which bats can easily cling, and cedar excels for outdoor weather-ability. To provide a dark exterior color for heat absorption, and even better outdoor longevity, the exterior surfaces of our bat boxes are coated with a rubber-based black spray sealant. A picture of a mounted bat box is featured on the Virtual Market website.

The bat boxes hang easily on utility poles or on the side of a building. According to the Division of Wildlife, bat boxes should be mounted 12-15 feet above ground where they will receive at least morning sun. The following links contain useful background and information.
