Manchester Locally Grown:  Time to Order Fresh Local Farm Products!




Manchester Locally Grown market





We always have a few new farmers, waiting their turn to join our market and offer their wonderful products to all our customers. In order to add more farmers, we feel it would be best to grow our customer base a bit. We want to be able to offer you and your friends some new local farm products.

The farmers and market managers would really appreciate your efforts to help spread the word about our fantastic market. What a great local resource for fresh, local farm products. Please pick up a few business cards to hand out to your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Advertising is very expensive, and we want to use our slim market funds in a responsible manner.

Northeast GA Locally Grown:  Market open for orders


Good Evening Locavores, Northeast Georgia Locally Grown is open for orders!

PLEASE NOTE: We will be closed Wednesday, December 27 only this year. That’s in about three weeks. Unless, of course, incliment weather hits at just the right time to prevent growers or customers from safely delivery and/or picking up local goodies. We will be in communication through either email or phone if that happens. For that reason, thanks for checking your account page to make sure you have the right phone listed. And thanks for understanding that weather DOES affect plants and may be the reason an item you order may not be harvested/delivered.

Baked Goods with Organic ingredients

See all products

PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30pm!

Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!

Lake Placid Online Farmer's Market:  December Market Open!


Hi All,

Happy Holidays! I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. It’s easy to give thanks when we are so obviously blessed with the bounty around us.

We’re happy to welcome Asgaard back to the market; they have added lots of beef, pork, and cheese to the shop.

Rehoboth has also added a variety of veggies, chicken, duck, and eggs.

If you’re still looking for a Holiday gift, why not some of Eckert Tree Farm’s maple syrup? They come in a variety of sizes, and is probably the purest maple syrup available due to their various quality-ensuring procedures; I can honestly say it’s the best maple syrup I’ve ever had.

Part of the Holiday season is giving, and we’re hoping you will share this email and this market with friends who might be interested.

By growing this local market, you are helping local farmers and producers, as well as increasing the demand for healthy LOCAL food, thereby making a small but powerful contribution to change. We’re so grateful for your patronage.

As always, please send an email with any questions.

Thank you!
Christie

ALFN Local Food Club:  Market Is Open!


Good morning local food shoppers!

The online Market is open and ready for your orders! Check out our newest grower, Rosehill Homestead, who sells pastured beef and chicken. Yum!

If you have not had a chance to read our end of the year report from Board Chair Tifany Hamlin, please take a moment to look it over here. Our market has been in existence for a decade now, and part of our struggle to gain and retain customers over the past few years has been our outdated website, which has also been in existence for a decade! We understand the importance of offering our customers a user-friendly experience, and we are actively working towards updating our online shopping platform.

This is where we need your help! We have launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for the cost of implementing the new software for our online market. Please share the campaign with your friends, on your social media networks, and make a donation! This market has an incredible group of supporters, and in order to keep offering our services we will need each and everyone of you to spread the word and make a contribution. We also have some great gifts for donation levels of $75, $125, and $150! You can find the link to our campaign and those gifts here on our Facebook page and on our blog.

Follow us on Facebook for more offers and events, or visit our website to learn more about our organization.

December showers bring January collards! Happy shopping y’all!

Siloam Springs, AR:  Online Market is Open! Create A Great Holiday Appetizer Tray!


siloamsprings.locallygrown.net

Congratulations to Arkansabi Farms on becoming Certified Naturally Grown! What does it mean to be Certified Naturally Grown? It means there is no use of GMO’s, no use of synthetic chemicals, and that your food is from a local farmer! Learn more about this certification here: http://www.cngfarming.org/

Here is an idea for a great appetizer tray using sausages from the market. R Family Farm has German Sausage, Beef and Pork Bratwurst, Jalapeno Cheddar Brats, and Andouille Sausage. Prepare your favorites, slice them and arrange on a wood board or platter along with mustard dipping sauce, your favorite sauerkraut, and maybe some cheeses, a baguette, or fresh baked pretzels.

http://www.hungrygowhere.com/recipe/german-sausage-platter/4c7e3101/

Mustard recipes:

Horseradish mustard:
1/3 cup Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons grated horseradish in vinegar

Apricot chili mustard:
1/4 cup apricot preserves
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon hot chili flakes

Wasabi-whole grain mustard:
1/3 cup whole grain mustard
1/2 teaspoon wasabi paste

We are entering the season where the weather may begin affecting produce. As of Friday, everything was still doing well even after a mornings of below freezing temps. We are very thankful for all the hard work our farmers put into extended season growing. It’s a gamble for them that produces a longer season of fresh, locally grown produce for us.

If you are still looking for gifts for colleagues, hostesses, or stocking stuffers consider some lip balms, all natural hand sanitizer and other products, crocheted/knitted items for the kitchen, locally roasted coffee, or a jar of honey. We also have farmers market gift certificates available.

Have a great week and see you Saturday!
