Naples,FL:  Market will close tonight


Please take a moment to get your orders in by deadline.
We are selling out of milk daily so if orders aren’t in by Sat I cannot be sure you will get your milk

Sunday and Monday are days for retailers
and farm customers to place orders and pick up milk.
By following the schedule it assures everyone of the freshest possible milk.
Thanks in advance for your help.
We also need to address no shows for milk pick up.
When Dana delivers she has to leave by 10:00. She stops her work schedule to backtrack from south Naples and deliver your milk and then go back to South Naples and Marco to finish her stores on time to be at a timed drop in Ft. Myers before coming home.
Mike and Dana start their day at 3:00 Am
so it is a long day for them and if they get behind they will encounter afternoon traffic which can add an hour since we live so far away.
If there is a problem with pick up please contact them. We know things come up and are unavoidable but with communication we may be able to find a solution.
Dana’s cell is 863- She delivers the 1st and 3rd week
Mike’s cell is 941-809-2658 (he doesn’t text)he delivers 2nd and 4th week
Farm is 863-491-5724 (no text)
These numbers are also on website.
Thank you for helping with this too.

Carolina Foothills, SC:  The Market


http://carolinafoothills.locallygrown.net/market

Hello Good People,
Im back from visiting family out west. Local Organic is not only common but actually expected by the locals there . Really awesome !

So I’ve made a decision to move back to be with my family.

I am looking for another market manager who is passionate about getting local organic food to our community. In the meantime , I will keep our market turned OFF until I find that person.

Keep your products listed because it’s so easy to ‘turn on’ this market People can still view products and become a member.

Thanks to you ALL for growing and producing the absolute best food for our communities. I will keep you posted!

Much Love ,
Marantha
