Champaign, OH:  A Brief Pause...


Hello, and happy Thursday to you all!!

Just a heads up that we will be taking a break, this coming week, with the market!

I will be on vacation, leaving the morning of next Thursday! Your assistant manager, Mark, will be taking over sole catering duties for our Hippie and the Farmer, for an event, all on his own, right during market time, next Thursday! And…Paul, our YMCA hero, is going to be gone, next week, putting us into a vendor check signing dilemma!

So, to make it an easy call, we will be closed for orders, until I reopen the market, next Thursday, July 19!!

Enjoy your week, and we will see you soon!!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

For climate science education I really recommend a prof in California, background in astronomy, who has put all his lecture notes up on the web. Dr Richard Nolthenius has taught at Cabrillo College (17,000 students) for over 30 years. Here is the link. He emphasizes sorting out the truth on the weight of the evidence.

The fourth session of Permaculture and Climate Change, offered by Adrian Hodgson and myself is happening at Westdale public library, July 19, 6 to 8pm. Come out to learn how to adapt a permaculture design to your lifestyle, live the good life in spite of climate disruption.

Independence,VA:  Market is OPEN for July 18th pickup!


Good evening!

In an effort to increase shoppers on the Online Market, we’re running a new promotion, and we need your help! It’s super easy. You find new customers to shop on the Market, and when they place their first order, you get a free market bag! Just be sure they put your name in the “Comments” section at the bottom of their first order. Let’s see who can get the most new customers to place their first orders! With the abundance of products currently on the Market, now is the perfect time to introduce new customers to all that we have to offer!

Also, if you are in need of anything from 7 Springs Farm, you are in luck! Rick Cavey will be going up to Check, VA to pick up some products next week and he has extra room in his truck! Please e-mail ricknjencavey@gmail.com for more information.

Thank you for all of your generous donations to the Market. To date, we have raised $845.00! We’ll continue to run our GoFundMe campaign from now until Farmer’s Market week happening August 5-11. We’ll be actively promoting this campaign once again on social media, so feel free to share posts when you see them! (We really appreciate all of your help! We did not receive major grant funding this year and there’s no way we could run such an awesome market without your help and support!).

To Donate: IFM Go Fund ME!.

To Shop: Independence Farmers Market.

Upcoming Events:

Wellness Day is happening this Friday at the Market. Join area health professionals for free screenings!
