Champaign, OH:  A Last Note...


My last love note of the ordering week to remind you that the market will close, this evening, at 10pm., and you do not want to miss all of the fun!

We have shattered even last week’s amazing sales records, and then you came back, even stronger, this week, to show us even more love.

Thursday is going to be a sunshine day, it will be a nice little drive out to the country to pick up your boxed orders, you do not need to leave your car, and you get our smiling faces, bringing you all of the local goodness!

We have so much to offer you, and now it’s time to get those last orders in!

All of our new customers have returned from last week, our weekly customers are going strong, AND…we are saying HELLO to returning customers who have been absent for a few years…

This market, the customers, the vendors…it all equals the love…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Champaign, OH:  The Chain


I can still hear you saying, you will never break the chain…
(The Chain-Fleetwood Mac)

The chain…just like this little local market of love, goes on, continuously, never breaking, never losing steam, and here for you, for your local goodness, always.

Today is Tuesday, and that means we close the market, for orders, tonight, at 10pm.

Your orders have already broken last week’s record, and we still have all day, today…

Your love amazes me, and it’s what keeps this market going, never breaking the chain…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Yalaha, FL:  Now Taking Cards


Market is open.
In light of the new social distancing, some one asking if I could take credit cards, and people interested in delivery;
I have now set up the Market to use Stripe as a payment gateway for online payments. It is now possible for you to pay with a card on your account (we are not storing credit card info, that is all handled on by stripe.)
You will now have the option to enter your card to pay at the time of pickup (that way if I can’t fill the whole order, you will only get charged for what you actually get) or you can prepay a balance in your account to use to buy produce into the future. Either way, your choice and you will be able to change cards on the account whenever you need to.

This has just been set up so if you have any issues, let me know. Hopefully it will work flawlessly from the beginning but I know that in real life there are sometimes glitches to work out.

Thanks,

Stones River Market:  Market is OPEN -- See you Wednesdayon the "CURB"


Welcome to this weeks Stones River Locally Grown Online Farmers Market. Reminder…Market is open until 10pm tonight.

Sending out another Weblog as a reminder for tonight but also a couple of our Growers wanted to send you a message.

Farrar Farm LLC.: Unfortunately is out of stock of 1 pound ground beef but has a good assortment of roasts and a few steaks.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: Brighten up your day with some our perennials. All the very early spring perennials are still available, and in addition a bunch of new ones have joined them recently. Unfortunately I cannot make them all featured, which is why I list them here. The very early azaleas are blooming, including my personal favorite, the white streaked with a little pink, and my other personal favorite, the pink with throat markings, both fall rebloomers. Another shrub in bloom right now is flowering almond, which really deserves a spot in your garden. The dwarf coreopsis is just beginning its long bloom cycle, and several mints are growing well. Three woodland phlox are blooming, including both purple and pink stolonifera as well as blue divaricata. These three will really light up your spring shady areas……Very new to the market this week, and very special, are the “Stacked Planters”. I have put some together with hardy herbs and some with hardy succulents, and am impatiently waiting till warmer weather to plant some with tender succulents. These planters have three layers which can be disassembled and rearranged as much as you like. I will be glad to bring one in to place on the market table for you to see if you’d like. Just drop me an email and let me know.Brighten up you day..week..and months ahead with perennials and few annuals.

Here is Sundays Weblog in case you’ve missed it.

We have spent years perfecting our recipes and continue to do so. We love what we do, and we enjoy making food that tastes good and is good for you.

Top a sunny side up turkey egg with our wonderful spring microgreens mix (mustard, broccoli, kale, kohlrabi and beets). We also have multicolored chicken and duck eggs, dried rosemary and fresh kale available.
