Green Fork Farmers Market:  Weekly Product List

Dear Green Fork Farmers Market Customers,

We are very happy to continue bringing you high quality, local, naturally grown and handmade products throughout the winter. This week we have greens, turnips, eggs, honey, bath and beauty products, olives, chicken, beef, pork, and microgreens. Blue Pony Bakery is offering 2 new scrumptious snack bars—Fruit and Nut Granola Bars and Pecan Pie Bliss Bars, both made with delicious, nutritious, organic ingredients.

Greens and eggs have slowed down a little in the low light of winter. Best to preorder and reserve what you want so you know it will be waiting for you when you arrive at the market. We also have some items available for sale on our tables at the market, so if you don’t have a chance to place an order, come on by and shop.

We’ll be at the market on Wednesday from 4-7 pm in the Breezeway at Nightbird Books on Dickson Street. See you there!

Stone County, AR:  Stone County Locally Grown Online News

Happy New Year, Everyone!

First, we’re writing to thank you for your support during our first months of operation In 2012. You hung in there with us as we all learned how to sell and shop online for local produce and other offerings from local vendors.

We look forward to kicking this season off with plants for your Spring plantings and more produce and offerings that will follow soon thereafter. We’re proud that you’ve joined us in supporting our local growers and our own health and well-being. We’ve taken important first steps in making Stone County a more sustainable community.

The next reason we’re writing is to say we’re going to extend our “break” and keep the Market closed until Sunday, February 10th. This will give us time to close our 2012 season and prepare for 2013.

We look forward to serving you!

The Birdhouse finally has again farm fresh eggs available (for pet consumption only of course), of which are coming from Ocoee FL – Lake Meadow Naturals Farm. Check them out by clicking here

The boxes are changing slightly, instead of coming pre packaged, the customer/member will get to hand select the produce they want in their box.

So that means we still only have a select amount of boxes available – so be sure to buy yours asap!

So come early if you want to buy local, fresh and mostly organic produce.

Any extra produce that does not sell in the course of a week, there has been discussions about donating excess food to a local food programs that the Tampa Underground organizes – the good samaritan, the Hub & home church feedings.

If you would like to be there to help drop off for those folks, please let me know.

Here’s whats been going on at the Co-op.

Over the past few months a ‘steering committee’ has been meeting every month & working to establish bylaws that are in accordance with our values and principles.

We are almost at the point where we can file for Cooperative status with the state of Florida statute 619. Hopefully, within the month that will be a reality.

The problem is our location has to change at the end of February.

We need a permanent spot that we can call home for the state and county to recognize, as our agreement for the Ella’s location was only for 6 months.

The steering committee has begun looking, but currently, the co-op needs to raise funds in order to afford a space. The co-op is current paying for itself but not much more.

More updates to come soon!

Coming Events

Birdhouse is looking for a new home.

if you got any leads, please email us at or Steering Committee Chair Johs –

Thank you for supporting our efforts to bring you the healthiest, freshest, and most delicious locally-produced foods possible.
