Miami County Locally Grown:  Welcome our Newest Vendor!!

Bad Seed Mustard Company has joined the market with their three deli-style mustards!!

From the Perfect Burn of their Sweet Habanero mustard to the No Heat Zone of their Sweet Deli recipe, they’ve got something for every palate!

Whether you make some killer deviled eggs, a classic sandwich, or pair it with the perfect pretzel, possibilities are endless!

Bad Seed Mustard Company started out like any other condiment business; in the kitchen! Sam’s Grandfather Richard Powell came across a recipe for an Old Fashioned Sweet and Hot Mustard back in 1981 while traveling the state of Ohio as an Insurance Adjuster. He brought the recipe home to Springfield Ohio, and Grandmother Phyllis would spend the next 5 years fine-tuning and correcting the recipe so that is was just right.

For years the mustard was renowned inside the Powell Family household; finding its home on everything from Turkey Sandwiches to Hamburgers and Hotdogs. In 2012 Sam asked his Grandmother if she would share her secret recipe so that he could start a small project, selling the mustard locally to family and friends.

“The project has quickly grown into a small business, one I know my Grandmother would be proud of. Her culinary passion extended beyond the food she plated, it encompassed even the condiments that complemented her dishes. Bad Seed Mustard Company continues this passion, providing the World’s Most Versatile Mustards!”!

Champaign, OH:  Positively 4th Street

I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment I could be you
Yes, I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes…
(Positively 4th Street-Bob Dylan)

For no other reason, today, except that I think these lyrics are beautiful, and I am in a Dylan kind of way, this morning…

Go ahead…spin some Dylan, and thank me, always for setting the tone of your day.

It’s Tuesday, it’s sunny, and it’s going to be a warm 52 degrees!! Perfectly inspiring for ordering from this perfectly inspired little local market of love!!

Oh, and you know…it’s climbing to be quite a market, this week! You don’t want to miss out on all of this positive vibing local goodness…we are open until tomorrow at 8am. Don’t linger, and don’t forget…

Another fun tidbit about the song that I chose for you, today? It’s the song that I put on replay, endless amounts of play, when I am on the cusp of making business decisions. And, the Jerry Garcia version is the one that I listened to, constantly, on the night that I put Cosmic Charlie into action, 9 seasons ago. What’s the song that sends you into action? We all have a song…

Okay! Groove it out…get your orders ready!

And…on a follow up to the chipmunk adventure of yesterday. The little intruder had trapped himself into my powder room trash can, must of scared himself into a sad farewell, and was then disposed of in the fields…so long…

Now…let’s get this Tuesday underway…

Spa City Local Farm Market Co-op:  Reminder

Don’t forget to place your co-op order before tomorrow, Tuesday at 9pm. Also, any orders for ANP vegetables need to be placed before 9pm this evening.
There’s lots of great foods from local farmers waiting for you.

Siloam Springs, AR:  Produce is back! Check Out the Online Market

This week we have cabbage, 2 types of lettuce, and 2 types of kale, along with sorrel (in the herb category), and microgreens.

We begin farm visits this week and couldn’t be more excited to get out and visit all of our farmers and potential new farmers. Before you know it, April 14th will be here and the outdoor market will return. We will be set up in the same location this year in City Park. The only exception will be Dogwood Festival weekend and we will set up in the Arvest Bank parking lot downtown.

Just a reminder that we now accept credit/debit cards as payment online when you place your order. The payments however will not process until after your order is picked up just in case part of your order is not delivered or you need to make a change. We hope that will ensure that you are only being charged for what you actually pick up. It’s a rare occasion that a farmer can’t deliver and is usually weather related when that happens.

Thank you for buying local!

See you Saturday!

Champaign, OH:  Monday Drag

That’s it…the feeling you get as you begin to wake up, and remember that you are not slowly waking up on a lazy Sunday. You are crash waking, right into a full blown Monday.

Make the transition a bit easier by vowing to take a few minutes to place an order with us! All of your local goods, in one place, with simple clicks of the keys!

I’m sitting here, coffee in one hand, my hair a mess, a million things on my Monday list of musts, and a chipmunk trapped in my lovely little powder room.

But, what am I going to do? Order. I know my week, at a glance, and once again, it’s a bit crazy. To make it less crazy, I need to simplify by getting some food ordered!!

Follow my lead…and please, throw me some tips on getting the chipmunk out of my life, and powder room…

Market News

Isn’t this weather wonderful? I spent some quality time out in the garden today, and was happy to see so many flowers in the strawberry patch. If mine are blooming, that means our growers ought to be harvesting theirs any time now. And that means the asparagus ought to be starting to come up about now, too!

I don’t have any news to share this week, so I’ll let you get right to ordering. 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!

Other Area Farmers Markets

Most other area markets are closed down for the season or have moved to winter hours. The Athens Farmers Market has closed for the season. They’ll return in April, and you can catch the news on their website. The West Broad Farmers Market is closed for the season, and you can watch for their return on their website here: The Comer Farmers’ Market is open on Saturday mornings from 9am to noon. Check for more information. Washington, GA also has a lovely little Saturday market, running on winter hours now on Saturdays from 1-4pm. Folks to the east can check out the Hartwell Farmers Market, which starts bright and early on Saturday morning from 7am to noon, and Tuesday afternoons from noon to 4pm. You can learn all about them here: If you know of any other area markets operating, please let me know.

All of these other markets are separate from ALG (including the Athens Farmers Market) but many growers sell at multiple markets. Please support your local farmers and food producers, where ever you’re able to do so!

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible!
