Champaign, OH: It's the Ice Capades
Well not really but surely be careful out there!
Had to share a small success story that happened overnight. One of our great new customers Bob Munch replied by email that he was looking for a particular type of radish called a watermelon radish last night after the market opened. While I haven’t heard of it, I sent an email to our vendors to let them know. I awoke this morning to find that Lonny has already ordered seed and will work his magic to deliver said radish to the market. Does it get any faster than that folks? Thanks to both Lonny and Bob for working together towards success!
Please give us suggestions on what you want to see at our market as we would be glad to try! Stay safe out there and thank you for shopping with us!

Champaign, OH: Announcements
Couple of Announcements…
Tonight we all sampled JC Grower’s Roasted Garlic Jelly and it is amazing. It was a true treat and is now available on the market site. It is two-thumbs up for sure! Also, Carla was invited to
speak to the Goshen Garden Club tonight so she has made it to the big time! Great job garlic friend!
While I’m not endorsing one school fund raiser over another, I thought I would share the news of the following. Please consider supporting their fund raiser which by the way also gets two-thumbs up as a healthy choice of fundraisers!
“The Mechanicsburg FFA is selling strawberries! All the proceeds go to the Relay for Life campaign. Half flat is $10 and Full flat is $20. Sale will run through March 1 and be delivered the week of March 18. Contact the FFA if you would like some strawberries.”(call the school for more details!)
While not baking loaves of Cosmic Charlie Breads, our very own Pam Bowshier is knee-deep in Oscar prep for the big event on Saturday evening in downtown Urbana. I hear there’s even a red carpet! I know she would love your support. Check with Pam or the Boston for more details!
Also the rumor mill is churning that Swisher Hill’s sheriff and boss lady are brewing up some new concoctions. I can’t share the details but let’s just say they are spicy!
All for tonight but we cannot thank our customers enough! Without you we wouldn’t be here! And you know, we have the best vendors too! Thank you, thank you, thank you! You guys work all day and have to work some more on market days so we really appreciate you! Thanks guys!
Champaign, OH: Stupendous!
What a wonderful market tonight! Many thanks to our regulars and our four new customers tonight! You guys rock! Thank you to our amazing helpers Charlene and Pam, along with our fill-ins tonight Emmi and the Perry Family aka Oakview Farms! Let’s all hope Mark has safe travels home from that state up north with the impending weather!
It was a super busy night at the Y with the chamber event and we can’t thank you enough for all the samples from our dedicated vendors who found out at the last minute we were having company! Thanks a bunch guys! I’m opening the market early again this week so shop away and we’ll close back up Tuesday.
Please be safe if we get what they are calling for! May you each have a snow day and spend some time planning your spring garden or going thru a new seed catalog and dream! Thanks everyone!
GFM : Bee-utiful Weather
The last couple of days have been absolutely gorgeous. Work is finally getting done outside, and we can all feel Spring is just around the corner. With that in mind, we want to invite you to shop our Spring Bulb Sales Fundraiser. Lots of wonderful spring bulb flowers to help you bee-utify your gardens. Proceeds from these sales will be used to operate the Farmers Market and help fund marketing, signs, and everyday overhead. Be sure to check out the Spring Bulb Sale on our Website: http://www.greenevillefarmersmarket.com/growing-green-bulbs.html

Seedtime and Harvest: Torn Feelings
I have really torn feelings about the huge storm over much of the Midwest. We need moisture so desperately to build up the subsoil reserves that have been lacking in 2012. But a foot of snow can be devastating! Especially to greenhouses made of pipes and plastic.
Mid-Georgia: Heron Bay Farmers' Market Ends
The Farmers’ Market at Heron Bay did not work out for us. There were not enough sales to warrant us continuing despite our best efforts and the help of Heron Bay’s Marketing and the Home Owners Association.
The farmers listed below are all within a short drive of your resort, one is in Locust Grove (Eggs at Fox Hollow Farm) and the James Farm is about 14 miles, and Sell Farm about 19 miles). Click on “Our Growers” at our website – www.midgeorgia.locallygrown.net – to find their websites and contact email and phone numbers if you want to continue to buy directly.
We thank those of you who patronized our market, you are very much appreciated.
There is a possibility that the James Farm and possibly Fox Hollow will return this summer in a traditional market setting on the property, I will notify you if this occurs.*
Thanks again and blessings to you!
