Your Wednesday Market Volunteers

Vista Marketplace:  Vista Marketplace @ 701 Whaley

The Vista Marketplace at 701 Whaley is open from 10:00am until 2:00pm every Saturday. This is a brunch market which features farmers and friends and their products grown or made right here in South Carolina! This week we will have a free drawing for one of our Collective Buying Program baskets as shown on the website.

Come join the “Party on the Porch” and have some of our famous Chicken n’ Dumplings for brunch. Then do some last minute shopping for the holidays. We’re excited to have Windy Hill Orchard back at Whaley with their hot doughnuts, cider, and Wassail. Our farmers/ranchers will have pork, chicken, beef, cheese, eggs, raw milk, honey, grits, coffee, collard greens, mustard greens, turnip greens and the turnips, beets, lettuce, and assorted fruits and nuts and let’s not forget our local florist. Some of the prepared foods available are: soups, entrée meals, sweet and savory breads, assorted cookies, muffins, pies and cakes, jams and jellies (perfect for the stocking), olive tapenade, herb butters, chicken salad, pimiento cheese, chicken pot pie, and many others. Our crafters offer many one-of-a –kind made items, jewelry, scarves, hats, quilts, alpaca wool items, soaps, lotions, skincare products, and beautiful art.
Visit with old friends, bring some new ones, have some food and check out our vendors for that last minute shopping that we all do! Shop Local…Support Small Businesses

Fresh and Local CSA Market:  We will deliver this Saturday to Tenley and Carderock - ONLY!

Folks -

We are delivering some fresh farm custom meats to CSA members in DC this Saturday morning and thought it would be nice to offer a few vegetables and quality meats by-the-cut to you. (Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to offer a full selection of produce this week, nor are we able to deliver to all sites.)

We will be delivering to the Tenley site (Alton Place) around 10am and the Carderock Site around 11am. We will not be delivering to any other sites.

All items are in limited quantities, so order as soon as possible in order to avoid disappointment.

We need your orders no later than noon tomorrow (Friday, December 21)


-Farmer Allan

PS Have an wonderful holiday season!

PPS We are still taking orders for grass finished beef deliveries circa Feb 1, 2013.

Suwanee Whole Life Co-op:  Weblog Entry

Hi Everyone and Welcome New Members,

The market is open!
Bulk Coffee Order this weekend
This weekend we will have our monthly bulk order with Carrboro Coffee Company (CCC). CCC provides the co-op with freshly roasted coffees. The artisan roasters at CCC know their coffee growers personally. These are fantastic, small lot coffees and the beans are bought directly from their farmers at a fair price. Because these are small lots, it is very comparable to our family farms here, and most of these farmers cannot afford the organic certification even though they use organic methods. We will be taking pre-orders on the website for the coffee this weekend and place our order next week after Christmas. I hope to have the coffee by the Jan 2nd pick up.

Merry Christmas & Thank you for your support!
