Champaign, OH:  Do You Believe In Magic?

And it’s magic, if the music is groovy…
(Lovin’ Spoonful)

What better song to kick off a magical, sunshine day? To kick off a Sunday of ordering from our magically, lovely, little market of love?

You are all making this week’s ordering so groovy, so far! You bring the magic to this market, each and every week!!

Make sure to check out all of the new offerings from Hickory Acres, CrisMis Farms, and the girls at Flourish are working on a second size of bouquet, along with fun details, each week, about their planned theme for their beautiful bouquets, that I will post in a weblog!

Kim from Kim’s Homestead told me that her flowers are growing for her hand held bouquets, and will be adding those to the market in the next few weeks!

We hope to see beef returning, soon, from our meat producers!

Each week, there are more and more items from our lovely vendors…the other magic in this market!

I am adding a new Cosmic product…a small coffee cake, called…Breakfast With The Hippie Coffee Cake!

Ok…go put your own magic into this amazing day!!

News from Our Growers:

RnR Farm: We are back on the market and have a ton of lettuce available this week! All of our cut, washed, and bagged varieties and for the first time lettuce by the head.

Lettuce by the bag for this week = Lettuce Blend, Romaine Trio, red leaf mix, and butterhead hearts.

Lettuce by the head = green leaf and red leaf.

All naturally grown using beyond organic methods.

And we also have a baby leaf kale mix.

Rainbow Hill Farm: Great to be back and start our season with ‘Live Plants’ for your home garden. Ranging from Tomato, Sweet and Hot Peppers, Cucumber, Eggplant, Melon Okra all delivered in biodegradable pots

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farm): We have fresh greens, herbal honey, and two flavors of hummus.

We have a few more heads of delicious red lettuce, some tatsoi (taste and consistency is somewhere between spinach and chard) and mustard greens. They aren’t ready yet, but we are also working on some micro greens.

We also have more of our tasty gourmet Apicius and Hot Thyme Red Wine Mustards. They give both meat and vegetables a light amount of heat backed by a delicious whole mouth taste.

Try our new toasted pine nut hummus or roasted red pepper hummus. They are delicious on breads, crackers, salads, or even soups (hummus is a great meat/protein alternative).

We also have herbal honey, tonics/shrubs, herbal teas, and traditional teas to brighten your day!

Flying S Farms: Unfortunately we will not have Artisan Breads available this week, ‘not enough hours in a day’ phrase fits us to a ‘T’…they will be back available soon. The Garlic Scapes are beginning to develop, considered a delicacy by chefs, they are milder than garlic bulbs. They can be cut or chopped and used in many dishes, great with stir-fry, sauteed or add into a most dishes that use garlic. Recipe for Garlic Scape Pesto 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese 3 Tbsp. fresh lime or lemon juice 1/4 lb. scapes 1/2 cup olive oil Salt to taste Puree scapes and olive oil in a food processor until smooth.
