TriLakes (NY) Winter Farmers Market: buy from local farms - online ordering to Lake Placid
Happy New Year! We are planning to offer our winter online ordering with delivery to Green Goddess once a month this winter. Order now through Monday evening (the sooner the better for me to wash and pack, and eggs are first come first served). Pickup will be this Wednesday from 3 to 6 at Green Goddess’ new location in the Placid Pond Complex by Hannaford. Please make checks payable to either Rehoboth Homestead or cash.
This month you may choose products from Harmony Hills Farmstead and Rehoboth Homestead, since Asgaard Farm is taking a good vacation.
The forecast keeps changing, usually not for the better, but at this point it looks like I’ll be able to harvest spinach from the hoophouse Tuesday.
We hope you are having an enjoyable winter, and are looking forward to seeing you again. – Beth Spaugh

A-GUSTAVORE WINNER THIS WEEK: MICHEL
Michel, a much-loved customer at Augusta Locally Grown, upped and moved her family to Washington GA this winter to start their own farm. In the winning photo, she and her daughter plant apple trees at “Blooming Buddah Gardens.” Michel wrote: “We are settling in here very nicely … taking our time and always discovering something new about this place that makes our Hearts smile.” Can’t wait to try those apples in a few years, Michel!
See you all at the market on Tuesday.

Champaign, OH: The missing glove...
Good evening market shoppers! A brief note of thanks to our wonderful volunteers tonight who packed your orders with a smile: Charlene, Mark and Pam (along with Meyer which I include because he is so charming!) We couldn’t do it without you guys!
There was a black glove with leather accents found at the check-in table tonight. It is at the front desk of the Y in case you have dropped it at the market.
Many thanks also to Craig Shirk from the Urbana Daily Citizen who is writing a feature story on the virtual market for their sister paper, Acres, which is circulated to at least 5 counties to homes with five acres or more. It primarily has a focus on rural living and agriculturally related stories. We’ll fit right in the pages and hopefully will show up in the February copy. We’ll share the news when it does! Have a great Friday and thanks again for your support!
