Statesboro Market2Go:  Market2Go Pickup!


Market2Go pickup in Statesboro is now at the Statesboro Convention and Visitors Bureau (SCVB) at 222 South Main Street. All pickups are on Thursday. Pickup times have recently changed for Statesboro and Sylvania, so please read carefully.

STATESBOROTHURSDAY Drive Through at SCVB starts at 3:30.

  • Last names A – F 3:30 pm — 4:30 pm
  • Last names G – N 4:30 pm — 5:30 pm
  • Last names O – Z 5:30 pm — 6:30 pm

SYLVANIATHURSDAY Pickup at Victory Gardens General Store
All Sylvania customers 4:00 pm — 5:00 pm

Want to change your pickup time? The purpose of the time slots is to try to achieve an even flow so nobody has to wait too long. But we want this to be convenient for you: if you need to change your time slot or location, please text 912.481.2263, tell us the ORDER NAME and the TIME you would like to pick up. We will even assign you some “bonus time” if you need to come after 6:30. Just let us know so we can make sure your order is in the right place at the right time. Please do NOT come before 3:30 as this creates a traffic backup.

Remember! When you head out to your pickup location, be sure to take a mask, a placard with your order name(s), and appropriate containers for your food.

THE DRIVE-THROUGH PROCEDURE in Statesboro.

  • Drive to the right (counter clockwise) all the way around the SCVB, keeping to the outer perimeter and maintaining a tight queue. A volunteer will check you in as you come around the far side of the building..
  • Please display the name(s) for your order(s) on a windshield placard to assist in quick and safe check-in.
  • Please wear a mask while communicating with market staff.
  • Provide access to your vehicle and to the containers you want loaded (bags, boxes, bins or coolers); unlock the back door or the trunk, with containers inside.
  • We recommend that you bring a cooler for transporting meat, dairy and perishable items. Ice cream melts, even in a short car trip, and our fresh non-homogenized milk is temperature sensitive.
  • Wait in your car for the runner to come out with your order and load into your containers. Make sure your name placard is visible.
  • If you did not prepay on line with a debit or credit card, please make a check for exact amount when your order is delivered. (You may pay cash in exact amount, but any “change” from cash received will be credited to your account. Use an envelope to label the cash payment with your order name.)

PICKUP for SYLVANIA CUSTOMERS.
Pickup is across the street from the Victory Gardens General Store. Please remain in your car until volunteers bring your order, and wear a mask when interacting with volunteers. We recommend that you bring a cooler for transporting meat, dairy and perishable items.

HOME DELIVERY CUSTOMERS.
Orders will be delivered between 2:30 and 5:00 by Boro Takeout. You will receive a notice when your driver is on the way. We recommend you leave a cooler at the front door (or your designated delivery location) to facilitate no-contact delivery and to keep perishable food safe.

EBT CUSTOMERS.
Right now we can scan EBT/SNAP cards only at the Statesboro pickup location. So, if you have ordered online with the intent to pay with your EBT card, you’ll need to come to the Statesboro Drive Through at the Convention and Visitors Bureau between 3:30 and 6:30. Email or text us in advance so we can calculate your bonus dollars and the amount to be charged to your card.

Martin's Farmstand:  Beautiful lettuce in midsummer


What a relief to have rain finally. May June and July were very very dry. In spite of that (and because of Gods sunshine and farmers that were diligently irrigating) the stand is packed full of lots of good food. A few highlights are lots of really nice romaine, leafy lettuce, spinach and cilantro. The garlic bulbs are harvested and the sweet and red onions are big enough that we are pulling them as needed. We have limited amounts of beans now but it looks like the next planting is set to give hundreds of lbs starting in about a week. The carrots are also big enough that we have started pulling them. It is peak season for blueberries and cucumbers.
On the Locally grown website (martinsfarmstand.locallygrown.net) you will see some items with zero as available number. This normally means the item is in season with an active flow coming through the stand but the supply at the stand is intermittent for some reason. Daniel

Duluth Cottage Kitchen:  week 32/2020


shoot, time moves so fast

these are NOT tomatoes, they are Feher peppers, small, sweet and very thick fleshed,
my mama’s favourite


IMG-3753


tomatoes are still producing like crazy, especially the yellow roma and the red cocktail

how about my bright red + shiny shishito peppers?
oh, I already asked that last week?
well then, my solution to my overproduction is simple, dehydrate,
reconstitute in winter stews or grind into a spicy but not hot paprika-style powder

IMG-3759-LI

this year for summer greens I grow lambsquarters, New Zealand spinach, malabar spinach and red and green gongura

IMG-3744




for the moment my garden is still ‘stuck’ in summer mode,
enjoy fresh tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, okra, figs, blueberries
while you can

as always: please do not forget my
jams, jellies, spices, dehydrated herbs and veggies in the market

 
have a wonderful week and see you soon,
your humble gardener

The Cumming Harvest:  August is here


Good morning everyone, Welcome to August! Now is the perfect time to stock up on all veggies and produce. It’s hot outside and so the veggies are growing. Now it’s also a great time to tell your family and friends about the Cumming Harvest and spread the news. Just a few announcements this week. We have noticed an influx of clients leaving their produce at the market at the end of the week. Because we are in the heart of veggie season, we do not have room to hold products over to the following week. If you are unable to pick up your items on Saturday, you need to reach out to the market manager. We will be charging a five dollar holding fee for every week that your items are not picked up. Please keep in mind because all of our products are fresh and locally grown, after the first week, we cannot guarantee quality of the product. Any products that are held longer than a week, will be donated the following week. If you have any questions regarding this please feel free to reach out to the market manager.

As always, please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Champaign, OH:  Heart Of Gold


I want to live
I want to give
I’ve been a miner for a heart of gold
It’s these expressions
I never give
That keep me searching for a heart of gold…
(Neil Young-Song Implant-Customer Dena)

And, well, this market and the customers, along with the vendors, are so much the hearts of gold.

Thank you, once again, for a fantastic week of orders!! You love us, and we love you!

Tomorrow, my father is back in the house to help your other market manager, Mark, in the greenhouse, so that means, lets get crazy, and have no time slots!

From 4pm-6pm…come show me some love…and music…and, your heart of gold…

XOXO,

Market News

Welcome to August! As the summer continues, the market is full of tomatoes, herbs, okra, winter squash, peppers, and more. We’re so excited to be able to share the bounty of North Georgia’s most delicious produce with you.
Please remember as you order that per the POA’s instructions, we cannot leave your food unattended. If you need us to deliver to your neighbor or slip your order inside your house, please be sure to tell us in the comments so we can make sure your order gets to you safely!
If you have other suggestion about how we can continue to make deliveries without being able to leave products unattended, we’d love to hear them. We’re still developing the best ways to get your orders to you, and we welcome any of your ideas.
As always, if you enjoy being a member of Big Canoe Harvest, tell your friends! The more the market grows, the more additional vendors and products we’ll be able to include. As always, your feedback help shapes the market. Let us know what you think about the Big Canoe Harvest products.
Have a wonderful week, and we’ll see you Saturday!
