ALFN Local Food Club:  It's Finally Official-


Summer Has Arrived!

The first of many warm weather celebrations, July 4th, is just around the corner. What better way to celebrate our nation’s independence than by indulging in some lovely local fare? Nothing could be more appropriate than steaks and burgers on the grill, or ribs and brisket in the smoker. Although, a generous serving of potato salad and slaw certainly wouldn’t hurt. Don’t overlook the satisfying flavor of a simple sliced tomato on the side, now that they’re finally beginning to trickle in. You could even enjoy a bowl of fresh blueberries and blackberries while watching the fireworks. No whipped cream needed for these ripe, peak-season delights! Everything you need for a phenomenal 4th feast is just waiting for you at The Market.

Manchester Locally Grown:  Welcome to MLG!


Welcome to our new customers and welcome back to our returning ones. The market is open for ordering now. Please take a few minutes to make your selection from among the many local products available. We have several new perennial plants, herb plants, and hanging baskets from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse this week. It is not too late to plant these large, healthy, container-grown plants into your garden. There are lots of baked goods on MLG, including gluten-free, corn-free, and organic. The eggs from free-range chickens and ducks are so yummy and healthy! Several new vegetables are a welcome addition to the market. Don’t forget the great selection of bath & beauty products (including insect repellant) by two of our farmers.

Please invite your friends to become customers of the market. Some of our farmers come from a distance to bring their fresh products to your table. Let’s encourage them to continue in their efforts to supply middle Tennesseans with the freshest and best of home-grown products!

Green Fork Farmers Market:  Weekly Product List


Dear Green Fork Farmers Market Customers,

NEW! This week—Figgieville has gorgeous heads of romaine lettuce, and Beyond Organics has scrumptious bulbs of fresh garlic. Beyond Organics also has 4 potato varieties in a rainbow of colors—red, white, purple, and yellow! These are so beautiful and so tasty, you need some of each! Green Fork Farm also has fresh basil and fennel to add to the sage and mint in their current herb offerings. Fresh herbs make everything delicious.

Also, VERY EXCITING NEWS—we are welcoming a new vendor this week selling LOCAL CHEESE! White River Creamery manages their herd of Nigerian Dwarf goats organically and milks them to make cheese at their inspected creamery in Elkins. This week they will have a table at the market so you can meet them and sample some of their delectable creations! They will also have a selection of cheeses available for sale at the market this week, and next week they will be available for preorder.

This week we also have green onions, eggs, honey, lamb, beef, pork, chicken, many varieties of olives and olive oil straight from the grower in California, locally roasted coffee, herbal soap, body oil, deodorant, facial elixir, lip balm, and sugar scrub, fig trees, vegetable seeds, and dog bones.

Go ahead and place your order from now until Monday at midnight for pickup on Wednesday from 4-7 pm in the Breezeway at Nightbird Books, 205 W. Dickson St. in Fayetteville. We will also have extra items available for sale from the table on Wednesday.

Thanks so much, and we look forward to seeing you.

South Cumberland Farmer's Market:  Time to order local food!


I’m standing in the middle of a corn field, corn hip high, hoe in hand. So, since I have limited signal at the moment, you all will need to browse items available yourselves. (Sorry!)

The first official day of summer has come and gone… My garden neighbor’s corn is taller than I am, so I suppose that’ll be rolling on to the market soon, signalling what I call the ‘real’ beginning of summer.

Enjoy shopping. Be well.

Spa City Local Farm Market Co-op:  No ANP products this week


Please do not order products from ANP this market,as they are out of town, and will not be able to deliver. Anything you order from them will have to be removed from your order.

On a brighter note, Meatworks has the return of lamb this market, so those of you who love lamb will have something to celebrate.

Many Thanks,
Karen

StPete.LocallyGrown.Net:  Summer Schedule Announced for our Market


SPLG Market goes on Summer Schedule

Valued Customers:
We are grateful for your ongoing support of our Market and trust that an upcoming change in our online Market schedule will not keep you from patronizing our Market all summer long. If you have been with us for awhile, then you know that this summer’s produce and product list is double what it was last summer. Yet, with recent considerable increase in demand (Amen!), we continue to strive for enough produce during hot summer months. But we still need—and greatly appreciate—your year-round support to keep us operational.

With all this said, St. Pete Locally Grown is rescheduling our online Market to open every other week effective this Monday, June 24th through the end of August. This means that the Market will open this coming Monday, June 24th, with orders delivered on Friday as usual. The Market will then close the week of July 1st and reopen on July 8th and so on, until September.

Many customers are already ordering every other week. Given that the majority of our greens last for 2 to 3 weeks when properly stored, it follows that you too can plan your orders for two weeks instead of one. Here are helpful hints to keep your greens as fresh as possible! We will still offer fruit which will likely need to be consumed the week it gets delivered. Of course, frozen foods won’t be an issue. Regarding dairy, here are guidelines for keeping yours fresh up to two weeks. I know these work because my goat kefir lasts up to two weeks.

We appreciate your understanding of this summer schedule and would like to hear from you about any concerns you have that will keep you from ordering every other week. We want to address each concern so that we may mutually support one another.

Best,
Tina & Nathan

PS. Nothing else will change on our Market’s scheduled activities. Our volunteer opportunities on Tuesdays and Saturdays remain the same. Our potluck socials will continue on the 4th Saturday of each month. Nathan’s urban farming class will continue the 2nd Saturday of each month.
