McColloms Market:  Heads Up that the FFFN Market Will Reopen this Week


Hi All:

Hope you’ve had a good summer.

Just wanted to let you know that I’ll be opening up the Market on Friday am for a pick up next Wednesday, Oct 18th at my house.

Thanks a million.

Melinda

Champaign, OH:  Weblog Entry


Amour!!!! That’s all we can say to our followers, our fans, our customers, the ones who have supported us, even when they thought that we were crazy with our visions!!
Yesterday’s State of the Plate Local Foods Dinner, was once again both an honor, and an incredible time to reconnect with our roots, building even more growth.
State Of The Plate has become a tradition in our county. I love that I was able to be on the ground floor of it, years ago, and to have watched it evolve over time. It is a day of beautiful countryside, beautiful barns, this year, a huge thank you to Pretty Prairie Farm, for once again, hosting our event!! Last year, we were honored to have been hosted by the beautiful, Wren Farm!!
The day is a coming together of fellowship in local, an appreciation for our growers and producers, and a way to get the word out about the, well, State Of All Our Plates…
We always come away with renewed energy, renewed love for what we do, renewed respect for those in the community who allow us to do what we do, an overwhelming love for those who buy from us, love us, and a renewed determination to take things to the next level!!

It’s an amazing feeling, and an amazing time to be a mover and shaker in this local scene…

Thank you, to all of you who buy from us, support this little local market of love, and who continued to spread the word!!

This market is a year round market, full of goods, and passion, and everything local!! As we soon bid goodbye to the seasonal physical markets, we can all rest easy, that we remain your local supplier, in the winter months!!

And, to quote a song lyric…You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Market News

Only a couple notes this week and you can get right to ordering. Kathy at Beehaven would like you to know that she’s been a busy little, well, bee making a ton of beeswax candles for you for Halloween and for gifts for the holidays. She’s sold out of her popular designs quickly in years past, and so this year she’s added some new designs and hopes to have even more ready for you. There are quite a few listed on the website already, and she’ll be adding more in the coming weeks. She’ll also be at our “Meet The Grower” table during our pickup this week, so you can meet her and see her many candles in person.

Some of you have already taken advantage of the many seedlings available for your fall gardens. I always say the fall is my favorite time to garden in Athens, even though many people shut their gardens down as the first frost approaches. I’ve spent some quality time in mine this weekend, planting collards, two types of cabbage, kohlrabi, kale, Brussels sprouts, and more. There are over three dozen varieties of veggie and herb seedlings listed this week and I expect more to arrive in the coming weeks. Usually we’ve got a better selection than you can find at most garden centers this time of year.

Finally, tomorrow’s holiday always sparks discussions of indigenous peoples and colonization. I’d like to plant an idea with you: think about all of the wonderful indigenous foods of North America, many of which have fallen into obscurity. See if you can find some to add to your diet this fall, even if it’s just to try something new for one single meal. Native plants are almost always a better choice to grow than species and varieties not adapted to our environment, but growers won’t plant them if there’s not a demand. Here’s one interesting list to get you started, and you’ll recognize some of them from the ALG listings throughout the year: 20 Native North American Foods with Stories to Tell.

Thank you so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes Athens such a great area in which to live. We’ll see you on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!
