The Market will be open for a few more hours until 7pm, so you have a chance to get your orders for the week in. You might want to consider some great products for winter chapped skin from Double D’s Bees or treat yourself to some jam, jelly, or delicious Marinara sauce (makes great chili!) from Ground to Table. And keep dreaming of spring….

Russellville Community Market

Champaign, OH:  Special announcement...

Oops! I totally forgot to give a shout out to two specials this week! Be sure to look for the bulk pork Chorizo from Oakview for $4.75 and the Cosmic Charlie French Loaf for $3.00. Ummm ummm good!

I also had to laugh and thought I would share something. The March 2013 copy of Better Homes and Gardens actually said “Now that growing vegetables is trendy, so is preserving.” Isn’t that great! Not that I profess we do anything to be trendy, but it is great that we can rest assured our hard work in the garden and kitchen is getting noticed! Whether you are new to canning or have felt like you must have personally helped Ball Canning stock increase, the benefits of growing your own food is amazing. I thought it was funny and am so proud that mainstream media is helping to share what is going on inside our Better Homes and Gardens! Great job everyone! Now if they just had a fashion show for what we wear to the garden! Yikes, maybe we don’t want that!

Champaign, OH:  Reminder for market closing...

Well here it is! Your Tuesday reminder that today is your last chance to order for this week. The market will be closing tonight at 8 so get your cravings fulfilled! I see new jellies and meats, new breads and more so hurry to the checkout lane…or in our case, the confirmation screen! Have a great day and be careful if you have to travel tonight!

Plattsburgh Online Ordering:  Order for Saturday

Two notables:
Duck eggs are in season.
If you want Maple, order online. Pat will bring your order down but is too busy at the sugar house to stay at market.

And the sunny forecast is #3, and maybe the MOST notable of the three.

See you Saturday, ans we al thank you for your support.

Farmer At Your Door:  The Market is open

Hi everyone! The Market is open until Tuesday night….even though it doesn’t feel like it, spring is coming very soon! March is coming in like a lion, but animals and plants alike know before we do that spring is on its way. Outside the maple sap is beginning to flow! Our geese began laying again, after a long winter, and gave us two beautiful big white eggs today! Many gardeners are starting plants indoors (tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, onions) and the temperature outdoors is supposed to climb to the 50’s by the end of the week. Melt, snow, melt! Good things are going to start growing again and we’ll be here to deliver them to you….thanks again for supporting local farms and eating local!

Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 Farm, week of Mar 3rd, 2013

I’m adding a few greens back on the list, chard, onions, kale, in addition to the mizuna.

Lots of goose eggs, try a few, priced to be the same as chicken eggs per gram. I’m offering a dollar off the regular price for chicken eggs this week.

A regular member has offered to make available Norpro kitchen utensils at wholesale prices. You can go to the website, browse the categories, (lots) and prepare a list. In a couple of weeks we’ll see how large the order is, combined. Here’s the page for the meat grinder/pasta maker:

Did you read the excerpts on climate upset last week? Are you a climate denier or a climate “hawk”? In either case you might like to try this on for size: what stage, of the classic stages of grief model, are you at? What have you come through? What’s next?
The five stages of grief describes “a process by which people allegedly deal with grief and tragedy, especially when diagnosed with a terminal illness or catastrophic loss.” As Wikipedia puts it:

1. Denial 2. Anger 3. Bargaining 4. Depression 5. Acceptance

The great New Yorker writer Elizabeth Kolbert perhaps best summed up this form of denial. Her three-part series, “The Climate of Man,” which became the terrific book, Field Notes from a Catastrophe, famously ends:

It may seem impossible to imagine that a technologically advanced society could choose, in essence, to destroy itself, but that is what we are now in the process of doing.
