Mid-Georgia: Heron Bay Farmers' Market
We are suspending the Heron Bay Farmers’ Market until sometime in January when we should be up and running with a new format as follows:
The market will be quite different from our usual. All orders MUST be made through our websitewww.midgeorgia.locallygrown.net
and MUST be completed by Thur 10 p.m.
We will deliver your order to Cannongate Parking lot each Saturday at 4 p.m. starting in January (actual date to be determined).
The delivery time will be limited to only 45 minutes, so please be prompt. We will not set up tents but most vendors will have some extras.
It is important to order through the website since this gives us time to put together your order and to make delivery efficient. All products that will be available for delivery will be updated and listed by Mon 10 p.m. when ordering can begin for the following Sat. delivery.
In order to place an order, you MUST open an account within the website. Once you have an account you will get a weekly update by email on what’s available and any modifications of location or times that might be needed. Please encourage your neighbors to sign up. We DO NOT sell, share of give out your personal information. The only one who knows or has access to “your” information is me (Bill), no other vendors.
Thanks for your patronage this past year, we look forward to the new format and more moisture which will help us grow more crops and be more consistent than we were able to be this past year.
We are grateful to Cannongate, Heron Bay, and Mikala Carver and her team at the Lodge for making this market available to you.
Have very Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas and Healthy New Year!

We got to try frying the Brussel Sprout tops this week. They are AWESOME!! (The sprouts themselves aren’t ready yet.) See the recipe below
Fried Brussels Sprout Tops Recipe
1 bag Brussels Sprouts Tops
4 -6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 -4 garlic cloves, minced
lemon juice, my addition, for garnish (optional)
salt, to taste
white pepper, to taste
Separate the Brussel Sprout Tops leaves from the growing tip. Chop the leaves to a size you are comfortable with, but not too small.
In sauce pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the brussel sprouts and fry, stirring occasionally, until very dark brown, almost charred, but NOT burnt.
The last minute of cooking, add the garlic and stir in to combine. Be careful not to burn the garlic!
Season to taste with salt, white pepper and lemon juice if using. Serve warm.
CAFE: Happy You're-Welcomes-Giving Day
Monday Update 11/26/12
HAPPY YOU’RE-WELCOMES-GIVING DAY!!
May the Monday following Thanksgiving Day be called You’re-Welcomes-Giving Day and be a day to acknowledge all the thanks we have received for everything we have done over the past year. Sound conceited? Not at all. It is just as reciprocal as the other day. We ask you as well to acknowledge all the thanks we have given you.
The thanks we gave last Thursday and celebrated by feasting, continues to still welcome us with left-overs in the refrigerator today.
Before your welcoming left-overs become “da nada” (nothing – all eaten), the reply to “Gracias” in Spanish, remember to begin stocking up for the next round of holiday celebrations. The CAFÉ Market is open until noon.
Eat well to stay well! Lance
We Are One Farmers Market: Pre-Order Open

Republican Valley Produce: RVP- December Winter Farmers Market in Manhattan
I just wanted to remind everyone that the Winter Farmers Market will be this Saturday, December 1st from 8 til 12, in Manhattan. It is at Pottorf Hall at CICO park. If you could share this information with co-workers, church groups, Facebook Friends, Twitter followers, extended family, neighbors, complete strangers, bulletin boards fliers, etc, etc, etc, you get the point. We had lots of produce available, but the customer numbers were down compared to last year. I am just wanting to let as many people know about it as possible. If you know of any way to let others know about the market, please either let me know or feel free to let them know!
Thanks and hope to see you Saturday!

Athens Locally Grown: Availability for November 29
So, how was your Thanksgiving? Are you planning on bringing leftovers to lunch at work every day this week, like me? There are so many things to like about this time of year, but for me one of my favorites is I get more chances than ever to cook for friends and family. There are so many festive dinners, pot lucks, and other social gatherings, and we have so many great ingredients in season right now it’s hard to decide which ones to show off in each dish.
There are also four more weeks of the Saturday Athens Farmers Market at Bishop park (now opening at 9am), but don’t worry… we’re not going anywhere. We plan on being open every week through the winter, including the week of Christmas. There are nearly 1050 items available this week, and the diverse nature of our growers and their growing practices mean we should continue to have a wide range of products available all winter long. I can’t promise you the tomatoes will continue right through February, but they’re all doing a heck of a job getting them to us this late in the season! And the chef salads you can make with what’s available right now are out of this world. Mine are, anyway. For some reason I don’t eat much salad in the summer, but the greens available right now just can’t be missed.
I’ll go ahead and cut my letter short right here so you can get right to ordering. Thanks so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes Athens such a great area in which to live. We’ll see you on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!
