ALFN Local Food Club: Seed Swap Thirteen!
Good Morning Hopeful Swappers,
We’re hosting CAAH’s annual Seed Swap this Saturday during Food Club (10-1). CAAH? Conserving Arkansas’ Agricultural Heritage. A fantastic organization that works to save heirloom Arkansas seeds and continue the process of seed saving and breeding better crop varieties for our climate. RSVP on Facebook! It is a potluck, so please bring a little something something for our swappers.
You do not have to have seeds to participate. Seeds will be for sale, and CAAH always requests that you save your seeds to bring back and swap next year.
And, on the simplest level, it’s fun to come, have a few conversations, see what cool varieties of seeds are available, and learn about CAAH.
ALFN Local Food Club: Market Closes Tomorrow!
By “you”, I mean the Food Club member who hasn’t ordered for the week yet…
The Market closes tomorrow morning. Better get your order in. Don’t you just know how you’re going to kick yourself come this Saturday, if you forget?

Old99Farm Market: Old 99 Farm, Week of Feb 10th 2013
Order at www.old99farm.locallygrown.net
Fewer vegetables each week, but we have started planting the spring crops. The ‘Persephone’ months (less than 10 hrs daylight) are behind us, so plants will start their growth spurt in the greenhouse. Offering carrots, lettuce, chard, mizuna, mizuna, mizuna, and (oh, typo, the ‘m’ key got stuck), and mixed greens. Some kale might be regrowing next week.
I have added advance ordering for chicken and lamb as these are finite quantities and it gives you the option of planning ahead.
Thanks for the egg cartons, still need lots. Ask your neighbours!

Homegrown Co-op: New Producer! Market OPEN for Saturday!
Cedar Grove Farm: I meant Feb. 14, not Feb. 13
The CSA pickup is still on Thursdays at Lindsey’s Culinary Market. The correct date for availability is Feb. 14.
We will move back to Wednesdays to coincide with Opening Day for the Downtown Athens Farmers Market, on April 10.
Sorry for my confusion.
Champaign, OH: Good day shoppers!
Good afternoon everyone! Hoping you and your Toto are safe! Just a reminder that the market is available for orders until tomorrow night at 8 PM. We hope you will support your favorite vendors and try a new one each week if you are able. Again, if there is something you would like to see added to the market, give us a shout! You can also email your vendor of choice directly and request something. While there are no guarantees, I doesn’t hurt to ask, right?
Also we were curious on something…do you like the additional days we have added to shop or are two days enough? We are tracking the sales and some of you seem to wait til the last minute anyway so extra days don’t seem to matter. Let us know what works best for you as we aim to please! We want to make this as easy as possible for you to shop locally!
Have a great day and show us some love if you can!

Mid-Georgia: Heron Bay Farmers' Market
We had a good start to the market on Sat.
The James’ Farm will have some fresh vegetables: kale, lettuce and rosemary.
They will be listed in the site later this morning. They also carry the usual preserves, jellies and jams, Wally Bees’ local honey, pies, cakes, cookies, etc.
The Sell Farm beef is rapidly being depleted, so check out what is left and place your orders soon before it is gone— I’m not sure if, or when, I will have more.
Fox Hollow Farm is offering new items this year — several new and wonderful sounding breads and raspberry almond bars for starters, also they have fresh eggs, scrubs, fresh and dried herbs, etc.
*Ordering will close Thur. at 10 pm and delivery will be at Heron Bay’s Cannongate Parking log Sat 4-5 pm.
Come early so we don’t have to sit around waiting. We’re thinking of shortening this to 4-4:30, but not this coming week*
