Dothan, Alabama:  Nov. 16 M@D Newsletter - LAST order cycle before Thanksgiving!



THANKSGIVING NEWSLETTER
Market at Dothan is open to accept orders.
Orders close Tuesday at 5pm
We use the word “Sustainable” over “Organic” because you can grow organic without being sustainable, but you cannot be sustainable without utilizing organic practices.


This Week’s Newsletter:
Market Chitchat
Blast From The Past
Grower Notes


THIS AND THAT

I trust each of you are rejoicing in this glorious day after the dreary weather we’ve experienced this week. And I hope and pray each of you are counting your blessings as we are deep into the Thanksgiving Season this year. This past week I found myself thankful for Elderberry Syrup and Chickweed Tea. Diligent use of Market natural remedies kept your newsletter editor from having to see a physician!

So this is our LAST order cycle before Thanksgiving. We here at the Market are thankful there are plenty of good healthy greens and root vegetables available. And if you’re ok with traditional sweets this is the last week Mrs. Laura’s pre-ordered pies can be ordered. If you’ve missed it she will deliver fresh pies to the Nursery for pickup the day before Thanksgiving.

New & Relisted Products – Woo-Hoo!

  • Turnips from Avalon Farms
  • Watermelon Radishes from Avalon Farms
  • Mini Carrot and German Chocolate Cake from Laura’s Confections
  • GEORGIA CANDY ROASTERS and other Winter Squash from Avalon Farms

GROWER NOTES

We have the best Growers in the Wiregrass! Please learn more about them on our Grower Page.

AVALON FARMS: The Kinston Sweet Onions have reached their season end and are starting to sprout. The Creole Reds are still available. Pungent onions, like the Creoles, store better.

Turnips and watermelon radishes are relisted.

Newly listed are Winter Squash.  Georgia Candy Roasters (top). 3 kinds of kabocha squash, Sunshine (mid left),  Black Forest (mid right) and Shokochi Green (lower 2) and a small spaghetti squash, Angel Hair (not pictured). I had planned to bring the winter squash to the farmer’s market last Saturday,  but family issues took me out of town. But here they are finally! 

LAURA’S CONFECTIONS: With only 12 days left we’re getting down to the Thanksgiving wire and I would gently remind everyone that this is the final ordering cycle for holiday pies.  Preorder pies will be delivered to Dothan Nurseries at 3pm the day before Thanksgiving.

Christmas will be upon us in 6 1/2 weeks. Each year I make, what others have described as melt-in-your-mouth peanut brittle and am always on the lookout for tins. If you have any that are essentially collecting dust I’d be interested in purchasing them. They must be rust-free and I pay $.25 per tin. Generally speaking, they must hold a pound of brittle or measure approximately 7? × 2 1/2". Thank you for your wonderful patronage and trust you place in me to provide you with the highest quality, delectable desserts to which I could ever aspire.

Peanut-Brittle


DANNY’S GREENS: Danny is taking a couple of weeks for his new planting to mature. His products will be available again Nov. 30 and he’s hopeful his carrots and onions will be ready to list too!

Today…a word from your market manager…

First, if you are thinking about dinner rolls for your Thanksgiving holiday, consider your favorite market manager, and hippie bakestress. You can order my rolls, for this week’s market, pop them into your freezer, and they will be lovely, and like just baked, when you pull them out for your guests…

Just a thought on this Saturday morning.

And, don’t stop with dinner rolls…our market has so many, many offerings for your holiday needs, and beyond…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Baked Goods with Organic ingredients
Pastured Eggs
See all products

Market stays open from Fridays 9 p.m. until at least 9 p.m. Mondays!

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!

PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30 p.m.

If you do not get an email ORDER CONFIRMATION right after you order then your order is NOT complete. Log back in and your order might still be there waiting for you to check out! If you have any trouble or questions at all, we are here to help; simply reply to this email or call Andrew at 770.530.3287

Holiday schedule: Open every week. Closed Christmas Day and New Years Day.

Locally Grown Market CCF:  Last Market in November


Good Evening,

The market will open at 9pm tonight. This will be the last one in November. So, order away.

Order Here

As you may know, there was a freeze this past week but it seems most crops have made it through and looking forward the temperature may be between the 50s-60s next week. If these temperatures hold throughout December, we will most likely have the market open next month too.

But there is always available dried goodness and jams from Duluth Cottage Kitchen.

And super-healthy microgreens from Tumble Tree Farms.

Cheers,

The Farmers’ of Cane Creek
