Champaign, OH:  A Heartfelt Thank You!!

Good evening…and, also, a dose of love to all customers for being so patient with market pick up, this evening, and for understanding the weather dilemma, and some of the products being delivered/not delivered, due to the messiness of the day!!

And, thank you to all vendors who either were able to make it all happen, or who were honest about how tricky the weather was making their journey!!


Old Souls Farm: the driver made it, and we were so glad!! He told us about his delivery day to Columbus and Marysville…of the road conditions, the downed power lines on the roads, and his thankfulness to be done for the day!! We totally understood!! And, FYI…your lettuces are in the fridge, and we marked each customers names on them!! Grab them, at any time!!

Kennedy Farms…very iced in, out in the country!! They will be making their delivery at or before noon, tomorrow!! A huge thank you to them, and if they were part of your order, you can grab it at the YMCA, tomorrow!! Look for your name on their products!!

Madison Ling…she will have her cookie dough balls in the fridge!! They were able to get to the Y at 8pm, this evening!!

Once again…thank you for showing so much understanding, tonight. It’s not easy being the manager, and trying to navigate the logistics on a weather day.

And…we will be closed until we reopen, on Thanksgiving night!! And, a reminder…we know that some of you want to grab your orders earlier than the 4:30 start time. While it’s generally ok, somedays may not work because the vendors have until 4:15 to get their things to us. If all products are there, it’s totally cool when you are there at 4pm. But, when we still have vendors coming in, at their appointed time, all products may not yet be there, and that can create frustration on the customer end. We want everyone to be happy!!

Finally…I would like to wish you all a very lovely Thanksgiving holiday. I have much to be thankful for, and I have many thoughts of love going out to everyone. I am getting ready to contribute to a big catering effort, being shipped out to a group of Paradise, CA residents, who have lost everything. I wish I was catering in food, but will be donating money to see that the catering efforts have a bit of my heart in them. Hoping that everyone involved are able to give these displaced residents, a tiny bit of love as they try to make sense of what their next steps are.

In this upcoming season, maybe we could all share a bit of love, wherever we go…

Champaign, OH:  Kennedy Farms Announcement

So, I hope you will not get irritated with the emails, today, but this is the best way to get news to the masses…

I just got a text from Kennedy Farms, and they are out in the country, totally iced in. They will not be making their market delivery until tomorrow!!

I want customers who have their items purchased to be aware, in case you want to adjust your pick up day!!

Champaign, OH:  Today's Market

Customers and vendors!!

Such an icy wake up call, this morning!!

I wrestled, all morning, with the market pick up, for this evening, and just got off the phone with Paul, at the Y.

The market will remain, on schedule, this evening. If, as a customer, you feel that the conditions are not what you want to be out in, this evening, that is totally fine! If we do not see you by 6pm, your orders will be grouped together, and you can pick them up tomorrow, or Saturday.

I don’t want anyone at risk, but decided to try to keep the pick up as normal as possible.

Vendors…if you are having issues with getting product to the market…please call or text me!! I will evaluate what is missing, and I will work with the customer, for a tomorrow pick up time, if needed!!

So sorry…but I want things normal, safe, and flexible, if need be!!
