Champaign, OH:  Shaking Things Up


I was going to wait until next week to make a slight change to the market, but then thought, why not spring it on, this week?

We are now going to close the market at 8pm on Tuesdays, vs the 10pm closing! I have been gauging the ordering habits, and only one to two customers order up to that 10pm cut off! This will allow me to close it at 8pm, begin getting the orders processed, sales notifications to vendors, and check writing paperwork out of the way, so I am not up until midnight taking care of the behind the scenes!

So, beginning, tonight, we are shaking it up, and closing at 8pm!

If you have not ordered, get groovy!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Champaign, OH:  Tuesday Notes


Good morning, lovelies…

Just a few notes on this rain soaked morning…

First, in case you missed it, Beth added more asparagus onto the market!

Second, the girls of Flourish have sent their week’s theme for the market bouquets….Sipping On Sunshine will consist of bright yellows, purples, and greens. A true spring bouquet with a mix of roses, snapdragons, allium, anemones, and foliage!

Third, if you are new to the market, you may pay ahead by phoning me, at 937-926-4833.

Fourth, I am urging all customers to either pay ahead, have a check made out to Oakview Farm Meats, or exact change in a ziplock bag, WITH YOUR NAME. If it is raining, please place your checks into a ziplock bag, as well. The lines move so very quickly, and it really jams things up when I need to make change, or write down a credit card number, to run, after the market!

Fifth, if you want to be a Friday pick up, please let me know! 10am-12pm, this week, as I am leaving town for the afternoon, and will not be around, after 12pm!

As always, I will be breaking the time slots down, for Thursday, tomorrow, once we close the market, tonight!

Thank you, so very, very much for being part of this lovely market family!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Caldwell County Farmers Market:  Week #3 Caldwell County ONLINE Farmers Market


HAPPY TUESDAY MORNING, MARKET CUSTOMERS!

Thank you for becoming online market customers! Our numbers continue to grow, and it humbles our growers to see the love you have for the farmers market and for their products!

Here are some reminders for our veteran members as well as the new online members who have recently joined.

Market members will receive an email each Tuesday morning letting them know when market opens. Market will close Thursday evening. Customers have between Tuesday and Thursday to shop the items that our growers have made available for order.

If anyone has questions about a product, they can email the grower or email the market.

Pick-up for the online market will work similar to a drive thru. On Saturday mornings from 9-11am, customers will pick up their online orders at the market location at Planter’s Park at City Hall. There will be a table set up, so all you need to do is pull up and someone will hand your order through your car window. It’s as simple as that!

PLEASE PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THESE PICK-UP DIRECTIONS.
You will ENTER on E Main Street between Newsom’s and City Hall and EXIT on E Market Street in front of Franklin Street Apartments.

We appreciate your patience as we work to make the traffic flow smooth and easy.

SATURDAY, MAY 23rd—OPENING DAY OF THE FARMERS MARKET

Are you ready?! It’s this weekend! We’ll have our first onsite market this Saturday from 8-12 at Planter’s Park at City Hall.

We ask that you please follow these farmers market safety guidelines.

1. We strongly recommend patrons wear a mask while in the market area.
2. Stay 6 ft apart from other patrons.
3. Please limit interactions with other customers and vendors.
4. Please use the hand washing and sanitizer station at the market.
5. You touch it, you buy it. Please let the vendors handle items for purchase.

These guidelines have been set in accordance with the KY Department of Agriculture. We appreciate you following our safety guidelines, so that we may stay open during these times.

Whether you place an online order or stop by to see what is available at the market, we’ll see you this Saturday! Thank you for being a valued customer!

Growing Together :  Offerings for May 23rd Pickup


Hi friends,

We’ve got an even wider selection of offerings this week for you all. Check out the several varieties of lettuce, as well as the classics like bok choy and mustards. More radishes are coming in including the beloved watermelon radish – light pink on the outside and bright pink/red on the inside! Gorgeous thinly sliced on top of salads or perfect pickled! Don’t let their pickled smell fool you, the taste is delicious on just about anything!

If you haven’t tried the hakurei turnips yet, make sure to check those out. Mild, sweet, and crunchy, they can be eaten raw or cooked, and they will convert any turnip-hater :)

As a reminder, the market closes on Wednesday night at 6pm. Pick up your order at The Nashville Food Project headquarters (5904 California Ave) on Saturday from 9-11am.

Payment – You can choose to pay with your credit card at the time of purchase or with a personal check at the time of pickup. Due to COVID-19, we are shifting towards a cash-free ordering and pickup system to minimize contact with shared surfaces for our customers, staff, and farmers.

As always, please reach out with any questions or feedback. We’d love to hear from you!

GFM :  Double Up SNAP


“We are excited to announce the kickoff of the Double Up Food Bucks SNAP benefit matching program at Greeneville Farmers’ Market and Depot Street Farmers’ Market in partnership with Nourish Knoxville and the Tennessee Department of Health.  

How DOUBLE UP Works: Customers who participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) can swipe their EBT card at the market to match up to $20 per day in Double Up tokens to be spent on fresh fruits and vegetables. For instance, a family that spends $10 in their SNAP benefits receives an additional $10 in Double Up tokens to spend at the market for free fresh produce. Double Up is a triple win: low-income families eat more healthy food, area farmers gain new customers and increase revenue, and more food dollars stay in the local economy. 

“With Double Up Food Bucks, federal nutrition dollars work harder—simultaneously reducing hunger and supporting healthier diets for SNAP households, while also supposing farmers,” says Charlotte Tolley, Nourish Knoxville Executive Director. 

Greeneville Farmers Market is located on the property of The Doak House Museum, part of Tusculum University.  They are open ONLY (no vendors at this time) for online purchases made from http://gfm.locallygrown.net 

The online market is open from Monday 3 pm to Thursday 3 pm with pick up on Saturday Mornings between 10 am to 11 am. Online market is open year round, with the Doak House location open May to October.

Only prepaid, purchases will be available during this crisis.   


For a complete list of markets and farm stores that participate in Double Up in East Tennessee, visit nourishknoxville.org/programs/snap/

 

This project is funded under a grant contract with the State of Tennessee.

Locally Grown STT:  May Market Days of 2020!


Hello all! Que Sera Farms, host farm of the St Thomas Locally Grown Online Farmers Market, here to check in with you.

Welcome to all the new members trying out the market for the first time this week!!

Thank you all for trying the market and shopping from the local farms that are joining. We have new growers every week and some of their feedback is great. They are really enjoying being able to use this platform to bring their produce to a wider St Thomas audience. They appreciated the earlier drop off time last so we’ll be keeping these hours as our summer hours.

A few of the farms participated in farmers markets over the weekend so they were able to just update their inventory for this Wednesday. Please do check the market site again and see if there is any new items that you would like.

For our pick up location, we are going to set up closer to the beach this week. We are still moving around a little to find the right shade spot for the market coordinators so be on the look out for a market tent this time on the beach to the right.
