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!
Whitney and Eddy

Locally Grown Market CCF:  Figs are ripening and fall class starting


*The loaded fig trees are beginning to ripen their luscious, juicy fruit and we have some this week. My mother’s favorite is fig preserves with lemon, so that will be simmering on the stove as the volume of fruit increases.

It is the peak of tomato season and the large, smooth, red fruit we have to offer this week will look great on a tomato and Swiss cheese sandwich, lightly toasted, another favorite.

I will be offering an organic growing class starting this month on putting in a fall garden. This hands on class will be from 9-12, every other Saturday for 3 sessions. The first class is August 15 and the cost is 150 dollars. Contact Lynn to register.

Hope to see you picking up veggies Friday,
Lynn

Champaign, OH:  You've Got A Friend


Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you’ve got to do is call
And I’ll be there…
(James Taylor)

Song Implant from customer: Susan Schuster

Last week, at market pick up, Susan pulled up, as usual, smiling, as always, but admitting to having a bit of a time, on her drive into the market. She told me that this song came to mind, because of how she had been feeling on the drive.

And, what better song to fall back on when we all have those little melt downs, those cloudy days, those sad tears that sometimes need to fall?

James Taylor is one of my favorites, and I’ve been humming this song, ever since Susan’s market pick up.

I hope that this market is that friend, to you, for whatever you need, whenever you need it. I hope that we have helped to ease things for all of you, ever since March.

I feel like each week, we all, collectively, as a little united market front, are able to absorb and pass through yet another week of information overload, fear, unrest, and need for comfort.

Today is Tuesday, market customers, and we close for the week, this evening, at 8pm.

Let us be the friend, who gets you through another week…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Caldwell County Farmers Market:  Week #14 CCFM Online Orders


GOOD MORNING, MARKET CUSTOMERS!

If you are a returning customer, thank you for your continued support of the market. We appreciate our support each week!

If you are new to the online market, WELCOME! We are happy to have you and look forward to doing business with you.

A FEW REMINDERS
ORDERING:
Each Tuesday morning, members will receive an email letting them know market is open. 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:
Think of it as something like 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.

ONSITE MARKET IS NOW OPEN!
Regular onsite market days are Thursdays from 4-6 and Saturdays from 8-12.

Whether you place an online order or stop by to see what is available at the market, we appreciate your continued support! Thank you for being a valued customer!

Grumpy Goat:  Edamame, Green Beans, and Cabbage


The garden has been keeping us busy this week as the edamame and green beans are ready for harvest! We should have a lot of both for a while…so think about preserving some for winter! You have options for your green beans of either those from our Zorro (black beans) or a purple/green mix (of the Royal Burgandy and Provider varieties).

We will also be harvesting our green cabbages this week. There aren’t a lot of them so I would suggest pre-ordering if you would like one.

And the tomatoes, peppers, okra, eggplant, keep increasing their production!

We are going to be giving our greens a break this week. There is the possibility we will be able to cut a few on Friday so you might find some in the store or at the market Saturday but I don’t think we will be cutting much. They have been a bit slow to recover this week.
