Joyful Noise Acres Farm:  The market is closing tonight at 8:00.


Please remember to get your orders in before 8:00 tonight.
Farm Fresh Foods has added a load of products this week to help with your holiday needs. She has everything from appetizers to desserts. Two Daughters Bakery has also made a wonderful variety of her cakes, cookies and cupcakes available.
The cows are still needing to be milked so please get your milk orders in.
We altered the market hours this week only so pick up is 10-2.
Please remember Glenn Turner and his family in your prayers. He and his wife Christie, own Georgia Farm to Table. His father died rather unexpectedly and the funeral will be Wednesday.

We, the collective of farmers, want to wish each of you a heartfelt thank you and Happy Thanksgiving. We appreciate the way you encourage us, purchase our products, and stand beside us. Abundant blessings to each and everyone of you and yours.

Athens Locally Grown:  ALG Reminder: We are closed this week!


Hi there! This is just a reminder that Athens Locally Grown will be closed this week to allow us all to celebrate Thanksgiving. If you need a last minute item from our local farmers, Heirloom Cafe on Chase Street will be hosting a mini version of the Athens Farmers Market from 11-2 on Wednesday.

I am very thankful for all the food options available to us provided by members of our community who care about the health of both the people eating the food they provide and the land from which it came from. And I find it very fitting that I get to express these thanks via a meal made from that very same food.

Thanks also to you, and happy Thanksgiving! We’ll see you in two weeks.

Recipes

Radicchio Salad with Romaine Lettuce and Cranberry Orange Dressing

A very cool Thanksgiving salad – easy to make with an interesting sweet and sour flavor. You can add some cooked grains to make it a heartier side dish.

Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 250°F. Roast the walnuts on a baking sheet for 15 to 20 minutes, until they turn lightly brown. Remove and break into small bits.

2. To make the dressing, combine the orange juice, cranberries, and dates in a blender, and blend until smooth.

3. Pour the dressing into a shallow pan and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, until the liquid thickens a bit and reduces by about a third. Add the cayenne, and season with salt to taste. Set aside to cool.

4. In a large bowl, combine the romaine, radicchio, pomegranate seeds, and parsley. Toss with some of the dressing (taste first; you may not want to use all of it).

5. Sprinkle with walnuts right before serving.

Market News

Hello!

THIS WEEK we will be delivering on TUESDAY NOVEMBER 25th, same time (4 – 6pm), same place (Trinity Church).

Have a local Thanksgiving! We’ve got everything you’ll need!

We have a wonderful selection of fresh veggies this week. Lots of salad options, from fresh, light lettuces to hearty chicories that enjoy some heavier dressings and can be made up ahead of time. Also, a nice selection of winter squashes, sweet potatoes of course, and beets and carrots that go well with everything! And don’t forget those greens for the day after.

There are lots of meat options up for when you are tired of turkey. If you still want a small bit of turkey but not a whole bird, Wedge Oak had some half-turkeys still available. Bear Creek has a large selection of pork products up.

You still have time to order Dozen Bakery’s Thanksgiving pies or a cheese plate from The Bloomy Rind. Both will be delivered on Tuesday November 25th.

The Bloomy Rind also has other cheese, jams, and caramel sauce listed, which make great hostess gifts!

Twin Forks Farm bread is off this week, but will return next week.

This is a time of reflection upon the bounty this beautiful Earth bestows upon us, and we are so thankful for all the good food and people growing good food that this land offers us. We are also thankful for you all, our generous community of customers. We really appreciate your commitment to and enthusiasm for local food and the local farmers who do the work. It is truly a cooperative effort, as we couldn’t make it happen without your support.

May you have a wonderful week, surrounded by friends and family, with much laughter, joy, and relaxation!

Thanks so much for your support, and we look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!

John and Tallahassee

Heirloom Living Market Hamilton Mill:  Minimum not met .. ordering hours extended


Market ordering hours extended until Monday morning 9:00am…

Although I realize that some folks will be out of town for Thanksgiving, at the present time the total for the Market Sales is less than 50% of the minimum of needed.


In an effort to reach our goal that makes it viable to hold Market, I am leaving the Market open until 9:00am tomorrow morning. If at that time, minimum has not been reached, pickup will be moved to the Crossfit location.


At the close of Market, Monday morning at 9:00am, you will receive an email letting you know the status and the location of pickup for this week.


Please be assured that we are doing everything we can to provide you with what you want from the local Farmers/Growers and Producers; but, please understand that Buying Local means supporting those who are committed to providing ‘Local’!

Hop on over to the Market and place your order…


Thank you for your support!

Hope to see you at Market on Tuesday!

Plattsburgh's Winter Farmers Market:  Online ordering - for the aftermath


Great market yesterday so I know most folks are well stocked. Today you have to think beyond Thursday and leftovers to what you will be wanting/needing not this week, but next week. Open for orders until 9 pm Tuesday.

Asgaard is taking a holiday this week so no products available from them. They will be back for next week. (Hmmmm, maybe not online until Monday though.)

Have a great and thankful Thanksgiving.
