Champaign, OH:  Good Day, Sunshine

Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine.
I need to laugh, and when the sun is out
I’ve got something I can laugh about…
(Good Day, Sunshine-The Beatles)

We have nothing but sunshine, these past days, lovely market customers!! And, it looks like another one, heading our way.

Just a reminder that the market will close, this morning! I usually close it up at 8am, but because I was having problems with the market site, yesterday, I am going to give an extra hour, this morning!

At 9am, the market will close for the week! Make sure to groove on in, and place those orders! We have lovely produce, sunflowers, EGGS, and all of the other amazing products, that you love!!

When I reopen, on Thursday eve, we will say hello to our new coffee vendor!! We bring to you, The Spotted Cow Coffeehouse, in conjunction with Hemisphere’s Coffee Roasters, to bring you local coffee choices, on the market!! Make sure to read all about The Spotted Cow, in their bio, and give them some love as you drive through town, and need that coffee fix!!

Also, check out new produce vendor, Olga, and her amazing, produce from her gardens!!

A quick note that Madison Ling is returning to school, and will be offering her products in very limited forms and quantities, but is available for special orders on her gluten free baked goods!! We’ve loved having her, all summer long, with us!!

The eggs have been an issue! We cannot keep them in stock!! But, Tyler was able to get more on, Oakview is working hard with their egg vendors to bring more in, and hopefully, we will continue to keep the quantities up for you!! JC Growers have older girls, now, who just are not laying. Jim is on a vacation leave with Rocky Ridge, and we just really miss the over production of eggs, but we are working on it!!

Ok…go, order, have a great day…see you at 9am!

New Field Farm's Online Market:  Kale, fingerlings, and more

Greetings again,

We’re adding Russian Banana fingerling potatoes and kale this week. The kale is both regular curly and lacinato (aka dinosaur kale). I think of kale as a fall crop, but it’s nice now so off we go.

The basil in the greenhouse is finally slowing down, but we still have some, and more is on the way in the hoophouse.

There are more tomatoes from the field, both regular and heirloom, as well as a lot more Ailsa Craig onions this week.

If you want beans, ask for them in the comment section like last week. We were able to give some to everyone who asked and can hopefully do the same again.

Please order by 8:00 AM Thursday.
