Independence,VA:  Market is OPEN for Nov. 25th pickup!

Good evening!

This will be a shortened Market week! In an effort to provide you with the freshest products for your Thanksgiving table, our Online Market pickup will be on WEDNESDAY, November 25th this upcoming week. Be sure to place your order by 8 pm on MONDAY night!

If you have pre-ordered a tree or wreath, please plan to pick it up on either Wednesday, November 25th or Friday, December 4th during regular Market hours (3-6 pm). Rick Cavey will be in Town Park (where we normally hold our outdoor Markets, beside the Grayson County Library) to help load trees and wreaths. If you haven’t already, please use the Calendly link below to schedule your pickup time.

The drawing for a fabulous basket of IFM products will be held Friday December 18. This will be the biggest box of goodies yet and tickets are still just $5! We have been unable to do most of our fundraisers this year so we are counting on your support. Thanks in advance and good luck! Tickets can be purchased on the Online Market under “Support the Market”.

Thanks again and happy shopping!

Champaign, OH:  Old Friends

Old friends, they shine like diamonds
Old friends, you can always call
Old friends, Lord, you can’t buy ‘em
You know it’s old friends, after all…
(Chris Stapleton)

Today’s song implant comes to us from market customer, William OHair. William always pulls up, has great music playing, throws music implants to me, burns cds for me, and always has his hippie vibe going on with his peace sign face masks.

Last night, he told me how amazing the new Chris Stapleton cd was, so I came home, and played it via Alexa. So good! This song stood out to me, and made me think of all of you, after last night’s market pick up. You all are like old friends, as you pull up, have a chat, share snippets of your lives, and we wave goodbye.

Also, friends…remember that the market is closed for ordering until I reopen on Thanksgiving night. I hope that you have a lovely week, and holiday.

I know that many of us have elected to really pare down the holiday festivity, this year, with me being one of them, but I hope that you will still feel the love and gratitude that the Thanksgiving holiday brings.

I am most thankful for all of you, each and every week, and I will touch base with you, next Thursday! Yes, you get a week away from your market manager’s ramblings!

Until next week, friends…

Miami County Locally Grown:  Fridge Update, Rosy Toes gone til 2021!

Here’s where we stand on replacing our refrigerator – Good, amazing, incredible news? We’ve raised over $1,500!

The sad news? We were waiting on hearing back from Hobart after Ed Bucher, with FUMC and the Food Pantry, had purchased new units for the Pantry and contacted them in our behalf to see if they’d be willing to also give us a deal! By the time the decision came back from Corporate, it did not go in our favor :-(

So we definitely are still gratefully, humbly accepting donations to raise the money to purchase at least a used commercial unit – we’re looking at $2,450 for a unit the size of our old one, and we’ll get there!

We’ll remain unable to offer you any eggs or refrigerated baked goods such as Carmen’s famous cream pies and pumpkin rolls, and we’ll have to limit our meat offerings as well – at the suggestion of Miami County Public Health, we were using the bottom of our fridge to store the cases and larger orders of meat from vendor drop-off to customer pickup!

This is the last week Rosy Toes Designs will be on the Market this year! Take a look at her Dryer Balls, whether whimsically adorable or practical, for gifts or a treat for yourself!

The Market will not reopen for orders this Tuesday Nov 24 after pickup – we’re closed for our scheduled one week break – so no Market pickup Tuesday Dec 1st!!

Thank you all for your continued kindness and support!
