Local eggs available. Good selection of meats (including lamb, beefalo, pork and chicken). Honey and local salsas, too. And don’t forget locally roasted coffee and local kombucha as well as mushrooms and mushroom products.

All of our bakers have GREAT variety right now—including sweet treats, cookies, pastries, breads and other goodies. Handmade caramel apples are back too.

New customers and orders always welcome—no minimum order required, no weekly order required.

TIPS:

1) Sellers sometimes add more products later in the ordering period, so be sure to check back. The product list changes each week, even from the same seller, so it’s worth exploring the categories you are interested in.

2) Multiple orders from you at different times will be combined into one order before pickup and you will only be charged once.

PICKUP LOCATION:
The OUTDOOR parking area at the south end of the new part of the Fayetteville Public Library.

Thank you for your continued support of the online market.

Conway, AR:  OPENING BELL: blueberries, beets, milk!


I hope you had a great weekend.

We are still looking for a couple volunteers to add to our list. Volunteers get $20 market credit PLUS first dibs on the extras table! You tell us which Fridays you are available, and we add you to our schedule.

When you check out, please consider adding your credit card to your account so charges can be made automatically after you pick up on Friday (adjustments are made for any extras or shorts). This makes for a speedy check out process, and our life much easier too!

We will still be accepting cash, checks, and cards at the markets. Card transactions at the market will now be charged a 3% convenience charge (same as online) to cover the transaction costs.

Thank you so much for understanding and for your continued support of local growers! Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Just a few reminders:
-email conwaylocallygrown@gmail.com if you are interested in volunteering at CLG!
-if you order milk, select W/EXCHANGE if you are bringing a bottle back. Otherwise, select W/DEPOSIT
-tell your friends about CLG!

The market is now OPEN for orders. Click here to start shopping: *https://conway.locallygrown.net/market

Most items are listed by 6 pm Sunday, but check back again before the market closes Tuesday night to see if any other items are ready to be harvested for you! Eat fresh! Eat local! Eat for better health!

There have been many local Farmer’s Markets that have opened, beat the heat and crowds and the challenge of parking and support the Growers on Stones River Market. Grower’s on our Market are local, within a 35 mile radius and a few of our Growers only sell through our Stones River Locally Market, thank you for supporting our local Grower’s.

Please share our market web address with your health-conscious friends, via text, email, or social media (and/or forward this message). https://stonesriver.locallygrown.net The more healthy members we have, the more variety of produce and product we can provide!

We look forward seeing you on the Porch this Wednesday, June 15th from 5-6:15 pm, with deliveries following. Know that our growers have the hour prior to get their products organized so things might be a bit hectic (and crowded) if
you come early.

If we are NOT notified, your order will be donated and you will be invoiced for the amount of your order. We still need to pay our Growers for their products.

New’s from a few of our Grower’s:

RC Farms: Along with a great assortment of produce and BEEF we now have some popular fruit available and more to come. Find Cantaloupes, Peaches & Cream Corn and Peaches this week. We’ve restocked our Beef selections.

Quarter Spring Farm: we have a plethora of plump chickens for your culinary escapades. We just finished processing our first batch of the year, so these are some fine fresh fowl. We also have our usual assortment of skin softening soaps and lotions. And we just introduced a brand new scent of lotion: coconut lime. Now you can smell like the beach, even if you’re actually stuck inland with the rest of us.

Sow’s Ear Piggery: we are back on the market this week with ‘NEW’ Non-GMO pork products, including pork tenderloin, cutlets, and chops, as well as roasts, ground pork, and mild pork sausage (no MSG).
You will notice some packaging changes with the ground products, as our butcher was unable to source the typically tube-like sleeves we are accustomed to getting. Also, this order was from a pig with a higher fat percentage due to its heritage breeding. In the past, if you have needed to add a little oil to fry our sausage or ground pork, this will not be necessary. In fact, you will be able to drain a couple of tablespoons of oil from your skillet. This rendered lard is excellent for sauteing garlic, onions, mushrooms, or cooking eggs. Studies have shown that outdoor, pasture-raised pigs have higher omega 3 and lower saturated fat than commercial pork raised in warehouses on concrete with no access to foraging. As always, Sow’s Ear Piggery pork is non-GMO fed and USDA inspected.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farm): We’ve got onions, radicchio, and giant red mustard! Also check out our pestos, gourmet mustards, and our beautiful wildflower arrangements.

Bean Man: It’s baking time again for the market! We will have our Gluten Free Cassava and Coconut Shortbreads this week and we will also offer a taller loaf for each one. Each is listed under Gluten Free in the Baked Products section of the Market as either a Short Bread (approximately 4.5 wide x 8.5 long x 2.5 high at the crest) version or Standard Version (approximately 3.5 wide x 8 long x 3.5 high at the crest) with each giving you 10-16 slices depending on your preference. BTW, the Coconut Bread is considered low carb (2.4 g net carbs at 10 slices per loaf).

Of course we have our full selection of Fresh Dry Beans and Mixes available along with our Scottish Oatmeals, Gluten Free Flours and Ready to Mix products covering a broad range of healthy dietary needs that you can truly enjoy. If you follow us on social media, we have been planting our next crop of beans and our last plant of oats is working its way to harvest. Remember, we are a Gluten Free farm and we grow or make all of our products that you see offered so everything is fresh, without chemicals and only offered in the same season of harvest.

Spring Meadow Farm: this week Bacon Cheese Quiche, Brussell Sprout Leaves, Cauliflower Leaves, Garlic Bulbs, Shallots, Yellow Onions.

Flying S Farms: This week we have our Fresh Farm Chicken and EGG BUNDLES-3 dozen, great savings! Green Garlic Bulbs and Garlic Scapes still available, Curly leaf lettuce, Several different varieties of Kale, Kohlrabi. Yellow Straight neck Squash, Cucumbers, Onions and Potatoes, Sour Dough Breads, Plain and the our Wheat Bread is Back. Few popular Jams are back with more to come this week – Just Strawberry, Seriously HOT Strawberry, Habanero Peach, Muscadine Grape Jelly and more!

Thank you and have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

Middle Tennessee Locally Grown:  Welcome Back; New Items


Middle Tennessee Locally Grown market

will be open for your orders till Tuesday evening at 10 pm.



Well, not exactly “new.” More like “returning,” but I don’t have a banner for that (yet.) Triple B Farm, welcome back. Natasha writes:

Triple B/Pickleweeds is back up on the market. We have raw goats’ milk to offer right now while the milk is flowing so plentiful! Along with the milk we also have raw goat cheese available. Our goats are fed non-GMO feed with no corn or soy. They also get alfalfa and hay! They browse on 3 acres of land and are on field rotation to help with parasites. We try and use natural methods to keep them parasite free but in the instance we have to resort to chemicals, the milk will be taken off till the appropriate withdrawal time has been observed. Give it a try!

On another note, sorry we don’t have our yummy non-GMO eggs at this time. We had a predator issue that impacted our egg production. We have since taken care of that! As soon as we have eggs again, they will be back on the market! Thank you for your continued support!

(Top, L to R) Non-GMO Raw Goats’ Milk, Raw Goats’ Milk Cheese, Crusader Coffee.
(Row 2, L to R) Teas, several Dried Herbs and several Fresh Herbs.


From CS3 Farms:
We’ve got onions, radicchio, and giant red mustard! Also check out our pestos, gourmet mustards, and our beautiful wildflower arrangements.

GROWER & MARKET NOTES

We may be a few days shy of Summer Solstice yet but our temperatures sure don’t know that! It’s a reminder of how blessed our Market is to have a great place for order delivery and pickup every Friday morning! We are always indebted to JD Boone and Dothan Nurseries for hosting Market at Dothan. Between the curtains and the fan and opening the refrigerator and freezer all along it’s reasonably comfortable in the Market Shed. And we greatly enjoy serving our growers and customers with the best local food to be found in the area!

We still have lots of healthy goodies for you to order and pick up on Tuesday – ordering closes tonight at 9.

Today was the first day of the Cherry St. Farmers Market in downtown Troy. I hope a lot of you were able to come out and enjoy the beautiful day and support our local farmers.

What’s nice about our Virtual Market is that farmers only need to harvest what they’ve already sold, and they don’t need to take a large hunk of time away from their farming work to man their table at a traditional farmers market.

So…let’s support both! If farmers are set up at a market, come buy your food from them, and also order your food ahead of time by shopping Miami County Locally Grown – it’s the best of both worlds!
