Good Morning Mammalians,
The Market closes tomorrow morning at 7:30am. Better order now. You may still be sleeping at 7:30am tomorrow morning. What a sweet luxury.
Our Growers’ Giveback Potluck is shaping up nicely. Plenty of RSVP’s and delicious sounding food, plus the chance to enjoy the company of…
- Jerry Markham of Bluebird Hill Berry Farm
- Kent Walker of Kent Walker’s Artisan Cheese
- Jonathan Buford of Andeyo Farm
- Jay and Deanna Fulbright of Arkansas Natural Produce
- Kelly Carney of North Pulaski Farm
- Liz and Ryan of Bussey-Scott Urban Farm
And Yes, folks, there will be a red carpet with photographers, plus speculation on who is wearing what.

Republican Valley Produce:  Postponing this week's orders

Hi, there. This is Linda, Jay’s wife, writing today. It looks like the influenza has hit our household, including Jay. We don’t want to share these germs with you all. For that reason, we are postponing this week’s market delivery. We will send out a message when he’s up and about again to reschedule the deliveries.

I’m sorry for any inconvenience. Hopefully, your households are healthy and stay that way.

ALFN Local Food Club:  Locally Crafted Tea's

Good Morning,
Hope you’re not frozen to death. If you are, we have some locally crafted loose leaf tea’s from Maison Terre now available. They’ll warm you up just fine. I can personally attest to the quality of these tea’s. Just got done drinking a mug of her wonderful Yerba Mate. Plus, Sarah Brown of Maison Terre does own her own tea room, so tea is kind of her thing. Try one this week!

Cedar Grove Farm:  CSA Availability for January 17

Hey Folks!
We’re a smidgen behind on the market opening this week — my apologies. Farmer Sara’s been out in the woods all weekend. Wow, what weather we’re having! Partly cloudy and 60’s and 70’s — so excellent for being outdoors. Anyway. We’ve got plenty of tasty treats for you this week. Red butterhead lettuces, carrots, chard, kale, and more!

The market is open! Hope you find something you like!

Gwinnett Locally Grown:  Raw Milk Availability

Hello Everyone,

I am back, after a nice long break.

Please have Maryanne in your prayers as she has been battling with pneumonia for a long while now, and went to the hospital yesterday.

RAW MILK IS AVAILABLE NOW! I also wanted to let you know that I have partnered with Johnston Family Farm to supply Raw Milk and expand supply, and can have it for you as soon as tomorrow. I have quickly uploaded all of their offerings. On top of raw milk, they also offer buttermilk, cream, chocolate milk and cheese. Some quick details on their products. Their buttermilk and chocolate milk is done in batches of 40 gallons, so they will process once they reach that request. The cream is frozen. Their cheese are pasteurized but made fresh. Since he didn’t give me weights, I hope to update that as soon as possible. Remember, all milk is raw and labeled for Pet Consumption except for the cheese.

I will also be handling all the group orders, and submitting Mother Earth Meats today. Please take note that they have said there are no exceptions this time for late orders.

I will leave market open until noon today so that you can get your orders in.

We have planned some wonderful things for 2013. We will host another WAPF conference in March, details to follow. We are also making changes to both sites (Farm & GLG), to streamline and make ordering easier. So be on the look out for all those updates coming soon.

Fresh wishes,

Message from Market Manager

If you are interested in bulk purchases at reduced prices, click on our new category ECONOMY SIZE to go directly to a list of available bulk items. When local urban farms are brimming with kale, collards, you-name-it, you will likely find bulk quantities of them in a new category we’ve set up. Category “ECONOMY SIZE” is now listed on the left side of the Market webpage. Need a walk through? Just call Tina at 727-515-9469.

If you don’t want to place your entire order right away, you can always come back and place a separate order from other Growers before Wednesday noon when the Market closes. We are required to place our order with GCF early Wednesday morning and it will help us NOT to over-order. THANK YOU for working with us on this.

WELCOME TO OUR NEWEST CUSTOMERS! Once you have submitted your order, if in doubt about what you owe, you can always confirm what you have been charged for by checking your account history and viewing your most current invoice. Instructions on how to do that are on our Q&A page under the question entitled Since you don’t provide an invoice with delivery, how do I know what I owe? . Also, since your vegetables are picked fresh within 24 hours of delivery, they should be lasting for WEEKS in your refrigerator. When you accept delivery, please take a few minutes to inspect your order to protect your vegetables from unnecessary spoilage. Lastly, it is imperative that you understand our policy on Unclaimed Orders found on our Q&A page. When you make a purchase you are agreeing to abide by this policy.
