GFM : Supporting Women around the Globe
SATURDAY JULY 11 & JULY 18
GREENEVILLE FARMERS MARKET IS
PROUD TO HELP
WOMEN AROUND THE GLOBE
At these markets you will find products that are handmade and crafted by women from around the Globe. Please come out and support the work of the woman who started this program to bring you the unique and one of a kind items made by women struggling to support themselves and their families around the globe.
Every Single Transaction Reaps Overall Good and Fair Trade to alleviate oppression in women.
While you are here shop our very own women and men, from right here in East Tennessee, with many fine, unique, one of a kind handmade items, and vendors with homemade baked goods, and homegrown local produce. SHOP AND SUPPORT LOCAL AS WELL.
If you are on SNAP or know someone that is, remember, we are part of the DOUBLE UP FOOD BUCKS program going on in East Tennessee. That means, when you swipe you SNAP card, you get FREE tokens to be used for fresh vegetables, fruits, and herbs, for the amount you swipe on your card . Program is limited to $20 max.
Champaign, OH: Long Monday
Like a honey bee
Buzzin’ ’round a glass of sweet Chablis…
(John Prine-Long Monday)
I can’t think of anyone better to start of a Monday, than the late, great John Prine. Always one of the best…
And, it is Monday, the heat is still strong, and I am willing a whole lot of rain to start happening, soon…
But, the thing that makes this very hot Monday, so very super cool, is that you can do your market shopping from the comfort of your home, office, or even in your car, if you find yourself waiting, and need to make use of your time.
The weekend was a long, busy, crazy, good one for your market managers, and their opening season of Pizza Farm Fridays, and Saturdays On The Farm, and all the while we continued to sing the praises of this market, the amazing vendors, the customer fan base, and the ease of pick up.
Market love in the time of social distancing…
I hope that you all have a lovey start to the week, that your Monday will be long in productivity, and that you can keep cool, kick back, and get your orders in.
Soul to soul
Heart to heart…

The Power of Produce (POP) Club provides a fun opportunity for children to engage in the local food system through conversations directly with farmers, educational games and demonstrations, and exposure to new fruits and vegetables. In addition to participating in educational activities, POP Club kids receive vouchers to spend at the market, allowing them to make their own shopping decisions at the market.
If you’re looking for a little something extra for the kiddos, the DYI cookie kits from Leah Lou’s Cookies are a fun activity for you and the kids. Leah Lou’s has a variety of kits, dinosaurs to flowers, that include 12 cookies, 2 frosting colors, and sprinkles!

We also have purple plums, frozen blueberries, and fresh peaches for your fruit cobblers. We have it all at RCM!!
