Manchester Locally Grown: Reminder: Ordering Closes at 10 pm
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.
This is just a friendly reminder to place your order online by 10 pm this evening. It seems as though every week, someone says, “I meant to order last week, but forgot till about 9:45.”
Well, that’s fine, for two reasons:
1. Every single order placed before I close the market will be filled, unless the farmers run out of some items; and
2. I never close the market at 10:00 sharp. It just doesn’t happen (and to those who know me, that comes as no surprise.) It may be closer to midnight before it gets turned off. However, it’s better not to put off ordering, because some items may be sold out.
Lastly, remember to hit that last “submit” button. I really dislike it when someone gets to market, only to find no order in their name because they didn’t hit the last button. When your order is placed, you will receive an email confirmation. If for any reason you fail to receive it, please contact Linda as soon as you realize it’s missing.
Also please go to our Facebook page & like, comment, and share this week’s post. Facebook isn’t allowing me to post on multiple sites, or post multiple photos. So please help us spread the word.
See you on Thursday!

Champaign, OH: Sha La La La La...
To Tuesday and so slow
Going down the old mine
With a transistor radio
Standing in the sunlight laughing
Hiding behind a rainbow’s wall
Slipping and sliding
All along the water fall, with you
My brown eyed girl…
(Brown Eyed Girl-Van Morrison)
The day is bright, the sun is shining, the breeze is warm, and all is just amazing on this beautiful Tuesday.
For some reason, in my musical tastes, Neil Young always ushers in the fall season, while Van Morrison always ushers in the upcoming summer months, for me.
So, here I am, coffee in hand, the day already planned, and Van Morrison singing to me from my Alexa…it’s on!!
On this lovely morning, why not take a few moments to think about how our market can help you in your local quest for good food, from trusted vendors, who can help you make that transition to buying/supporting/and encouraging local eating, local buying, and local living?
The market is so easy to use, and we have so many amazing products. We are also very seasonal, so right now is the time to take advantage of Harrigan’s Harvest Asparagus!! She also has very limited quantities of rhubarb!!
We’ve got it all…and we are just waiting for you, to get in tune with us, as we stand in the sunlight, waiting to make your local life, full of local products…

Miami County Locally Grown: Opening tonight with a Goodbye
Hate to open on a sad note, but I have to share the news that Mother Suds Soap Co. must take an extended break from the market (and soap-making) for the time being.
As Katie was already a busy mom and wife with two lovely little girls, after baby Willow was born in December, it’s easy to understand how something like making soap would be difficult, when it requires so much precision and attention to detail (not easy or safe with three lively kids underfoot!)
Her job at Worch Memorial Library in Versailles also keeps her very busy, coordinating exciting classes and unique speakers for so many library programs – especially the Local Roots Seed Library (which EVERY gardener should check out!) and The Modern Homesteaders Group, which meets the 3rd Monday of each month at 6:30pm! This month’s topic? Beekeeping, with Growing Small Grains and Pressure Canning/Food Preservation to follow!
Katie’s wonderful Lavender Chamomile Soap, lip balms, and Baby’s Bottom Salves will only be available on the market until the end of May!
