Clemson SC:  Just a Reminder To Order for Tuesday's Drop-off


Hello all!
It has been a beautiful weekend, and, if yu are like me, you have been outside and not sitting at the computer. So, when you do get back in, remember to put your orders in for this week.
We have WheatGrass for those of you who would like it for spring decorations or juicing, or green smoothies. It is a cut-and-come again container of live green food chock full of chlorophyll, vitamins, and minerals. We build live cells with living food, and what can be more lively than something still growing? My indoor cats enjoy munching on their own container of wheat grass, and the chickens go crazy over it. Get all the benefits of live food when you order a pack od wheat grass, snip some off and let it re-grow for another round.
Another live food is green garlic. Garlic is great for warding off colds and vampires, and green garlic is freshly dug just for you. You can crush it in the garlic press, or just thinly slice or finely chop and all to soups and salads. Because Green garlic is fresh, it naturally is packed with live nutrients, too!
started pea plants are available too, and can go outside afer a few days of conditioning. They have been grown outside in an unheated greenhouse this week,
Soon it will be time to plant the cool weather brassicas, and we are busily starting those for you in case you didn’t. Here’s hoping you have a fantastic day and that you find our choice of fresh winter greens and sustainable protein pleasing to your palate! We love being able to provide this farm-to-table experience for you!

Rivervalley.locallygrown:  Rivervalley Market Open


This is just to remind you that this market is like most markets (Selling websites), it never really closes. There just needs to be a period when an order can’t be placed since the producers must know what to assemble for delivery to a Friday pick-up. Items (baked) ordered from Stutzman’s pantry must be cooked before delivery is to be made so they have requested that they be notified on Wednesday morning as to what has been ordered for the week.

As we enter to the growing season, the practice of keeping the market open continuously may need to be changed. If this happens you will be notified so you can plan accordingly.

Have a joyous ordering period.

The Market Managers

Stone County, AR:  Market's Open!


Hi, Everyone…

Greetings on this very wet day! The Market’s now open!

Remember, it’s going to take all of us to create the vibrant local food economy we deserve. Visiting and shopping at our “locally grown” markets – whether at Stone County Farmers Market or online at Stone County Locally Grown – this is the crucial part WE play in having it happen.

So, come on in to The Market! There are plenty of healthy, delicious and nutritious foods to partake of…even before the growing season gets fully underway. Start making your local markets your first stop in grocery shopping. You’ll be glad you did!

Also, we want to serve you in best way possible! If you have questions and/or suggestions, please let us know by responding to this message.

Have a great day!

StPete.LocallyGrown.Net:  Market NOW Open - Mar. 11, 2013


Meet Doug & Melissa Resetarits of Doug’s Wild Alaskan Salmon

Message from Market Manager

NEWGROWER
On Friday we met with Doug & Melissa just before they head back to Alaska to prepare for the upcoming wild sockeye salmon fishing season. As projected, we now have Doug’s Wild Caught Alaska Sockeye Salmon on our Market! Please Visit Doug’s Grower page and website for details. We hope you are as excited as we are! We won’t see this lovely couple again until sometime in October when they return to this area. You may have met them yourself at The Saturday Morning Market in downtown St. Petersburg. Until the Resetarits return, our Market is the exclusive local resource for their wonderful wild caught Alaska sockeye salmon products (including salmon burgers)—and wild caught Alaska halibut too!

FROZEN FOODS
We guarantee that we will deliver frozen goods to you in frozen condition. From that point—Whether you have purchased frozen goods from us before or you are just beginning to buy frozen foods from our Market—here are suggested guidelines to follow to keep your frozen goods safe—and FROZEN—once delivered to you. 1) Move frozen goods from your kitchen counter into your freezer immediately upon receipt. 2) If you leave us a cooler, please assess—on a weekly basis—how many ice packs are required for the frozen goods you have purchased. When in doubt, please contact your Market Manager at 727-515-9469. If a large volume of ice is required, then please leave multiple coolers to provide adequate space for your order. Please note that we cannot take responsibility for frozen goods once we have delivered them to your door. Also, please leave loaned Market coolers and ice packs in a visible place for pickup at your next order. We loan these out as a courtesy to get you over the hump but we need them back! With hot weather coming, we would appreciate ice pack donations if you have lots extra. Thank you in advance.

Russellville Community Market:  The Market is Open!


Hey everyone! It’s Sunday at noon again, which can only mean one thing: The market is open!

We hope you enjoyed meeting and seeing Debbie Taylor of Bluff Top last week as our RCM Featured Farmer!

This past Friday, March 7th, was our 2nd ever Farm to Table meal at Arkansas Tech. With cooperation from the hospitality department and the great farmers from around Arkansas, including several from our own market, the chef was able to use local ingredients to create one of the best meals I’ve eaten in quite some time! We hope you were able to make it to the meal, and if not, we hope you can next time around.

Last market day, some of you may have also had to chance to meet one of our newest farmers, Gerry Hemmer. Known as Auntie Gee’s on the market, Gerry showcased some of her homemade soaps and even brought some eggs to sell. Hopefully you were able to talk with her and meet another one of our great RCM farmers.

New on the market this week: Ratchford added their well-known Elk snack sticks, similar to the buffalo stick already on the market, but with elk! :) Ratchford has also added a beef breakfast sausage, which looks fantastic! Also, tropical coconut and cocoa butter soaps have been added! Be sure to check these items out!
