Champaign, OH:  Dedicated To The One I Love


And tell all the stars above
This is dedicated to the one I love…
(So many groups have covered this song, my favorite being the Mamas and the Papas, but tonight, I am playing the soundtrack from, Echo In The Canyon, which features Jacob Dylan, and friends, singing in the documentary…)

And, this is my love song, to you, this evening. From the customers, to the vendors…you have no idea how much love I have for all of you.

Each week, the sisterhood/brotherhood of this market, and the meshing of spirits and souls and market revelry warms my heart.

My gosh…the kindness, love, compassion, excitement…you all bring it, every week. For some reason, this week just really hit home. I hope that after your cars are loaded, and we’ve talked, laughed, exchanged more than just orders, that you also take the love vibes with you, on your journeys.

I open the market, tonight, for another week of ordering fun. We also welcome and new and awesome vendor, this week!! She will send me a write up, all about her, her products, and what she does, but she brings us her body scrubs, and I am so excited!

Tonight, this weblog is dedicated to ones I love…all of you…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Statesboro Market2Go:  Market2Go Pickup!


Market2Go pickup in Statesboro is now at the Statesboro Convention and Visitors Bureau (SCVB) at 222 South Main Street. All pickups are on Thursday. Pickup times have recently changed for Statesboro and Sylvania, so please read carefully.

STATESBOROTHURSDAY Drive Through at SCVB starts at 3:30.

  • Last names A – F 3:30 pm — 4:30 pm
  • Last names G – N 4:30 pm — 5:30 pm
  • Last names O – Z 5:30 pm — 6:30 pm

SYLVANIATHURSDAY Pickup at Victory Gardens General Store
All Sylvania customers 4:00 pm — 5:00 pm

Want to change your pickup time? The purpose of the time slots is to try to achieve an even flow so nobody has to wait too long. But we want this to be convenient for you: if you need to change your time slot or location, please text 912.481.2263, tell us the ORDER NAME and the TIME you would like to pick up. We will even assign you some “bonus time” if you need to come after 6:30. Just let us know so we can make sure your order is in the right place at the right time. Please do NOT come before 3:30 as this creates a traffic backup.

Remember! When you head out to your pickup location, be sure to take a mask, a placard with your order name(s), and appropriate containers for your food.

THE DRIVE-THROUGH PROCEDURE in Statesboro.

  • Drive to the right (counter clockwise) all the way around the SCVB, keeping to the outer perimeter and maintaining a tight queue. A volunteer will check you in as you come around the far side of the building..
  • Please display the name(s) for your order(s) on a windshield placard to assist in quick and safe check-in.
  • Please wear a mask while communicating with market staff.
  • Provide access to your vehicle and to the containers you want loaded (bags, boxes, bins or coolers); unlock the back door or the trunk, with containers inside.
  • We recommend that you bring a cooler for transporting meat, dairy and perishable items. Ice cream melts, even in a short car trip, and our fresh non-homogenized milk is temperature sensitive.
  • Wait in your car for the runner to come out with your order and load into your containers. Make sure your name placard is visible.
  • If you did not prepay on line with a debit or credit card, please make a check for exact amount when your order is delivered. (You may pay cash in exact amount, but any “change” from cash received will be credited to your account. Use an envelope to label the cash payment with your order name.)

PICKUP for SYLVANIA CUSTOMERS.
Pickup is across the street from the Victory Gardens General Store. Please remain in your car until volunteers bring your order, and wear a mask when interacting with volunteers. We recommend that you bring a cooler for transporting meat, dairy and perishable items.

HOME DELIVERY CUSTOMERS.
Orders will be delivered between 2:30 and 5:00 by Boro Takeout. You will receive a notice when your driver is on the way. We recommend you leave a cooler at the front door (or your designated delivery location) to facilitate no-contact delivery and to keep perishable food safe.

EBT CUSTOMERS.
Right now we can scan EBT/SNAP cards only at the Statesboro pickup location. So, if you have ordered online with the intent to pay with your EBT card, you’ll need to come to the Statesboro Drive Through at the Convention and Visitors Bureau between 3:30 and 6:30. Email or text us in advance so we can calculate your bonus dollars and the amount to be charged to your card.

Champaign, OH:  Feelin' Groovy


Slow down, you move too fast
You got to make the morning last
Just kicking down the cobblestones
Looking for fun and feeling groovy
Ba da-da da-da da-da, feeling groovy

Hello lamppost, what’cha knowing
I’ve come to watch your flowers growin’
Ain’t you got no rhymes for me?
Doo-ait-n-doo-doo, feeling groovy
Ba da-da da-da da-da, feeling groovy

I got no deeds to do, no promises to keep
I’m dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me
Life, I love you, all is groovy…
(59th Street Bridge Song-Simon and Garfunkel)
Song implant: Weekly customer Kathleen

I’ve used this song, before, many times, and when Kathleen gave me her song choice, I just smiled…

I feel like no other song makes me happy, trippy, or skippy, as this song.

And, this is how I feel about this week’s market! Another great market, a whole lot of customers, more new customers, and returning customers from over the years.

Tomorrow, pick up is between 4pm-6pm, with no time slots assigned!

If you are a new customer, you may call me, today, with card payment information, if you would like to be paid ahead, and then we can load you up, as you come through the car line!

OR…you can have a check made out to Oakview Farm Meats, or exact change, in a ziplock bag, with your name on the bag!

I do have to insert a note of seriousness…if you ordered, you are responsible for pick up that order. When the market closes, reports are done, checks are written to vendors, and we expect the money to be coming in with order pick up. If you don’t pick up, and ignore your payment responsibility, it costs the market money because we cannot recoup the loss that has been incurred. Last week was another incident of this. I am always about the peace and love, man, but I am also a hard nosed business gal, and need to put a stop to this nonsense.

So…consider this my very heartfelt love note. It doesn’t happen, often, but it has been happening, too much, for me to still be smiling about it.

Now…let’s see your smiling faces, and hear your song selections, and load you up with all of your amazing local products!

Life, I love you…all is groovy…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam
