Champaign, OH:  Welcome To The Market!


We have a new egg vendor with us!! We can never have too many eggs, and we are a market with a heavy customer base of egg lovers!!

This summer, many of our egg vendors have been faced with a shortage in their egg supply…so, in order to make sure that our customers continue to get their eggs, we welcome…Rocky Ridge Homestead!

Rocky Ridge Homestead is a small, family operated, urban farm. We are currently offering non-certified organically produced eggs. We have a wide variety of happy free range chickens that produce nutrient dense, flavorful eggs. Our hens eat only certified organic feed to supplement their natural foraging. Our goal is to help provide a local source for nutritious, organically and sustainably produced food.

So, eggs, seasonal, about to end, produce, and all of the other amazing local products offered on this market!

Use this weekend to think about what you may need for the week, think about how easy it is to place a market order, and think about how good you will feel by keeping it all local!

Peace, Love, Good Vibes…

Joyful Noise Acres Farm:  JNA on-line market is open for ordering.


LOVIN’ the weather! It is just perfect for firing up the grill. Tonight we are grilling spare ribs and okra with sweet potatoes on the side. YUM.

We are blessed to have Georgia Farm to Table on our market. Glenn and Christy were thrown into the clean food delivery business rather unexpectantly but the concept and commitment has paid off. Their goal is to purchase local food from local farmers. They look for Certified Naturally Grown farms and also farms that do not use harsh sprays and chemicals. Each box features fruits and vegetables. Their boxes do keep with the seasonal aspect of growing and eating. Between groing seasons, choices can be limited so they will add produce from South Georgia or Florida to keep the boxes full. It is a good value and also a way to try something you might not otherwise purchase. Also, Christy is wonderful about making substitutions if there is something in the box you just don’t want.

Thank you for supporting your local growers.
Blessings,
Mary Beth

Champaign, OH:  Beautiful Day


It was a beautiful day…
Don’t let it get away…
Beautiful day…
(Beautiful Day-U2)

Today was one of those days that you just wanted to reach out, and embrace! Perfect sunshine, perfect temperatures, perfect soft breeze. The kind of day in very late August when you begin to see subtle changes. Changes in how the leaves look, changes in the hue of colors that begin to paint the natural landscape, changes in afternoon shadows, and changes in the evening fade…

It’s the time of season when everything looks like it is washed in golden tones. When we begin to think ahead to the shift of seasonal items, when we prepare to make this market, the only market in the winter months, when we embrace all of the remaining summer produce, almost at it’s peak, and taking advantage of it while we still have it!

I urge you go get to know this market, again. Or, continue to order just as you have been doing. If you have never placed an order, let this week be a week of trying something from our market. It’s fast, it’s easy, it’s affordable, the market is friendly, and best of all…it’s local!!

I open the market, tonight, after the most amazing day of golden sunshine. We are here for all of your needs, and we love our customers, so much!

Think about how you can make your life simple, and make each day a beautiful day. Order with us…

Peace, Love, Good Vibes…
