Superior Seasons: Blog March 16th!
Ordering Reminders! We are still offering HOME DELIVERY to Individual customers on Wednesdays! CLICK HERE, until Monday at 4:30 pm for Wednesday options. Deliveries occur normally between 12 and 2pm, but let us know if that doesn’t work for you and we’ll try to accommodate.
In the Garden
This extra snow is really going to help us in the long run (even if you hate shovelling it)! So far we’re on a more normal (30 year historically speaking) spring trajectory. Prolonged winter helps keep moisture in the ground, pests from getting a head start, and planning time on track. Why not take stock of some of the stored vegetables you still have left to help make a better plan for next year’s root cellar (or remind yourself of what you really wished you had more of!) If you can’t grow it all yourself – there’s a few farms around now that are offering larger volume shares for canning or preserving.

Heirloom Living Market Lilburn: The Market is Open
Since I will not be here to open the Market tomorrow afternoon, we are now OPEN! I am attending a Weston A Price Foundation Conference tomorrow at Rancho Alegre Farm and I am so excited. Lots of great speakers, a Farmers’ Panel, demonstrations on making Bone Broth, Fermenting Foods, Sprouting grains plus local Farmers offering their local, fresh, organic and nutrient-dense products!
I will check back in later this weekend and give you any updates on vendors, new products and perhaps report on my experience with Kohlrabi!
This week, be sure and check out the organic, free trade coffee, roasted right here in Lilburn! The Roastin’ Fool’s Vigilance Roast is superb; just the right balance of flavor with a wonderful creamy finish! I won’t drink any other coffee — try it and you will understand my enthusiasm!
I had a GREAT breakfast this morning and every single product was purchased at Market: Vigilance Coffee from The Roastin’ Fool, milk in my coffee from Johnston Family Farm, a fritatta made with eggs and Hot Breakfast Sausage from Heritage Farm, onions, broccolini and spinach from Doug’s Garden Produce Box, a slice of Spelt toast with a dollop of Blackberry Jam from My Daily Bread! We are so blessed to have such wonderfully fresh food available to us from local Farmers/Growers and Artisans!
The Heirloom Living Market Facebook page has been created and is a work in progress! Please “like” us! And share the lilburn.locallygrown.net website with your friends and family! Thank you for supporting us and the local economy!
Mary sends her best from a vineyard somewhere in California! You will see her at Market on Thursday! It will be good to have her back!

ALFN Local Food Club: Updates for Food Club tomorrow...
Hey there Community,
How are ya?
Some pertinent information about Food Club tomorrow:
1) The St. Patty’s Day Parade will be going on downtown. It doesn’t start til 1pm, but there may be some detours around the River Market. Plus traffic. Be safe and (I recommend) try coming early!
2) There is a wedding reception at the church, starting at 11am. The parking lot will be fuller than usual, and we’ll be sharing the kitchen with the wedding folk. As a result, the cashier’s table will be in the hall by the water fountains.
Do not let these changes to the average Food Club upset you! Consider them opportunities for adventure!
See you tomorrow.
