Manchester Locally Grown:  Don't Forget to Place Your Order!

Manchester Locally Grown market

We always have a few new farmers, waiting their turn to join our market and offer their wonderful products to all our customers. In order to add more farmers, we feel it would be best to grow our customer base a bit. We want to be able to offer you and your friends some new local farm products.

The farmers and market managers would really appreciate your efforts to help spread the word about our fantastic market. What a great local resource for fresh, local farm products. Please pick up a few business cards to hand out to your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Advertising is very expensive, and we want to use our slim market funds in a responsible manner.

Our pickup location is across the street from the Manchester City Schools administration building:

Good morning!

This is just a friendly reminder to place your order online by 10 pm this evening. It seems as though every week, someone says, “I meant to order last week, but forgot till about 9:45.”

Well, that’s fine, for two reasons:
1. Every single order placed before I close the market will be filled, unless the farmers run out of some items; and

2. I never close the market at 10:00 sharp. It just doesn’t happen (and to those who know me, that comes as no surprise.) It may be closer to midnight before it gets turned off. However, it’s better not to put off ordering, because some items may be sold out.

Lastly, remember to hit that last “submit” button. I really dislike it when someone gets to market, only to find no order in their name because they didn’t hit the last button. When your order is placed, you will receive an email confirmation. If for any reason you fail to receive it, please contact Linda as soon as you realize it’s missing.

Also please go to our Facebook page & like, comment, and share this week’s post. Facebook isn’t allowing me to post on multiple sites, or post multiple photos. So please help us spread the word.

See you on Thursday!

Fresh Harvest, LLC:  Fresh Harvest for May 20th - Strawberries!

Market News


It is full steam ahead on produce this week! Those strawberries are finally coming in as well! There is such a great selection of vegetables this week it is a feast for the senses.

John’s strawberries have been a little late in getting here, but are big, sweet and delicious. Last week we pieced together berries from 3 different farms, but this week these beautiful berries are all organically grown at John’s farm.

Just in time – Dozen Bakery has listed their scrumptious Brown Sugar Shortcakes – perfect for strawberry shortcake and lots of other things as well!

It is always hard to guess quantity on items like berries – we usually don’t know for sure until we pick them! If they are sold out and you would like to order some, please leave us a note in the comments section of your order and we will try to get you some!

There are a few varieties of herb plants left for your garden, as well as the seasons first cut flower bunches!

Thanks for your support, and we will see you on Wednesday!
