Suwanee Whole Life Co-op:  Starting 1/17/18 - Changes to co-op PICK UP DAY/Extended hours! (PLEASE READ)


Hi everyone,
Hope you all are warm and enjoying the snow! All I can hear outside right now are sounds of childhood joy!!

Just wanted to take a moment to share with you some upcoming changes. Starting January 17th, pick up will be on Wednesdays instead of Tuesdays, and pick up hours will be extended to 6:30 pm! Pick up will be from 1 pm to 6:30 pm! Until then, pick up will continue on Thursdays and end at 3 pm.

I will be merging the Buford co-op with SWLC. I think this is positive for both co-ops and I’m very excited to offer extended pick up hours in the new year!

REMINDER – We will not have pick up 12/28 or 1/4

Have a wonderful weekend,
Nora

Lake Placid Online Farmer's Market:  December Market Open!


Hi All,

Happy Holidays! I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. It’s easy to give thanks when we are so obviously blessed with the bounty around us.

We’re happy to welcome Asgaard back to the market; they have added lots of beef, pork, and cheese to the shop.

Rehoboth has also added a variety of veggies, chicken, duck, and eggs.

If you’re still looking for a Holiday gift, why not some of Eckert Tree Farm’s maple syrup? They come in a variety of sizes, and is probably the purest maple syrup available due to their various quality-ensuring procedures; I can honestly say it’s the best maple syrup I’ve ever had.

Part of the Holiday season is giving, and we’re hoping you will share this email and this market with friends who might be interested.

By growing this local market, you are helping local farmers and producers, as well as increasing the demand for healthy LOCAL food, thereby making a small but powerful contribution to change. We’re so grateful for your patronage.

As always, please send an email with any questions.

Thank you!

ALFN Local Food Club:  Market Is Open!


Good morning local food shoppers!

The online Market is open and ready for your orders! Check out our newest grower, Rosehill Homestead, who sells pastured beef and chicken. Yum!

If you have not had a chance to read our end of the year report from Board Chair Tifany Hamlin, please take a moment to look it over here. Our market has been in existence for a decade now, and part of our struggle to gain and retain customers over the past few years has been our outdated website, which has also been in existence for a decade! We understand the importance of offering our customers a user-friendly experience, and we are actively working towards updating our online shopping platform.

This is where we need your help! We have launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for the cost of implementing the new software for our online market. Please share the campaign with your friends, on your social media networks, and make a donation! This market has an incredible group of supporters, and in order to keep offering our services we will need each and everyone of you to spread the word and make a contribution. We also have some great gifts for donation levels of $75, $125, and $150! You can find the link to our campaign and those gifts here on our Facebook page and on our blog.

Follow us on Facebook for more offers and events, or visit our website to learn more about our organization.

Congratulations to Arkansabi Farms on becoming Certified Naturally Grown! What does it mean to be Certified Naturally Grown? It means there is no use of GMO’s, no use of synthetic chemicals, and that your food is from a local farmer! Learn more about this certification here: http://www.cngfarming.org/

Here is an idea for a great appetizer tray using sausages from the market. R Family Farm has German Sausage, Beef and Pork Bratwurst, Jalapeno Cheddar Brats, and Andouille Sausage. Prepare your favorites, slice them and arrange on a wood board or platter along with mustard dipping sauce, your favorite sauerkraut, and maybe some cheeses, a baguette, or fresh baked pretzels.

Mustard recipes:

Horseradish mustard:
1/3 cup Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons grated horseradish in vinegar

Apricot chili mustard:
1/4 cup apricot preserves
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon hot chili flakes

Wasabi-whole grain mustard:
1/3 cup whole grain mustard
1/2 teaspoon wasabi paste

We are entering the season where the weather may begin affecting produce. As of Friday, everything was still doing well even after a mornings of below freezing temps. We are very thankful for all the hard work our farmers put into extended season growing. It’s a gamble for them that produces a longer season of fresh, locally grown produce for us.

If you are still looking for gifts for colleagues, hostesses, or stocking stuffers consider some lip balms, all natural hand sanitizer and other products, crocheted/knitted items for the kitchen, locally roasted coffee, or a jar of honey. We also have farmers market gift certificates available.

Have a great week and see you Saturday!

New Holiday Item from Clover Creek Cheese Cellar

Clover Creek Cheese Cellar has made a new cheese for the Christmas holiday. Available for a limited time only, Cranberry Christmas. “We mixed dried cranberries and orange juice together to get the right amount of cheery sweetness. A few sprinkles of cardamom and cloves spice the flavor to make it merry and bright. The salty creaminess of our mild asiago is a peaceful mellow background just like a cozy fireplace or a fresh layer of snow. Slice up a wedge for your holiday gatherings or enjoying it all yourself!”

New Vendor

We would like to welcome our newest vendor, Memaw’s Sweets and Treats. Formerly known as Roudabush’s Bakery in Claysburg, PA, Memaw’s Sweets and Treats is now owned and operated by Christina Claar, the granddaughter of the original bakery’s owner . Items loved for decades by our local citizens are now again available.

We are offering a few of their many items (apple dumplings, chocolate chip cookies, gobs, pumpkin pie and pecan pie) for you to fall in love with. Just like grandma used to make.

Memaw’s items will only be available for this coming week’s orders, as they will be overwhelmed with Christmas orders the week before Christmas. (These items do freeze well) They will then be returning with us at the beginning of the new year.

ONLY TWO WEEKS REMAINING!!

We only have two weeks remaining for orders in the 2017 season. We will be delivering the weeks ending December 15 & 22 ONLY. We will be closing the market from December 23, 2017 through January 6, 2018 for the holidays. We will re-open the market for ordering beginning January 7th, with the first delivery of 2018 on January 12th.

We will be making some pricing changes at the beginning of the new year and will provide you with more details on that in the coming weeks.
