The Wednesday Market:  Order Today and Tomorrow; News about Our New Location


Good afternoon.

The Wednesday Market is open. Please place your orders by 10 p.m. Monday. Orders are ready for pick up between 3 and 6 p.m. Tuesday. Be sure to check the website for all of this week’s product offerings. Here is the link: http://wednesdaymarket.locallygrown.net/market

Many of you have asked when The Market is moving. We now know and are happy to announce that we plan to be in our new location in April. We are moving into the little house just past the Pike County school system’s bus garage on Adams Street, not far from our current location. In fact, if you are used to turning down the side street and parking in back of the Board of Education office, you have already found Adams Street! The new location is farther down the street, past the old Zebulon elementary school and The Chandler Building. Look for a little yellow bungalow on the left. If you get to Eastview Cemetery, you have gone too far.

We are using the month of March to spruce up the new location and volunteers are welcome to help us! If you are interested, please contact Anna Evans. In the meantime, you can still find us at the little red brick building at the corner of Concord Street and Adams Street.

See you on Wednesday!

This was the beauty I beheld Thursday morning! Up in the North Georgia Mountains, some snow still remains even after the warmer temperatures and rain of the last few days! Although Wednesday night’s 6 inches of snow brought back fond memories of my childhood in Ohio and the Black Lab found it to his liking, it meant that travel down to Lawrenceville, Lilburn and Buford was not an option!


I am deeply grateful to Marie Wheeler who coordinated the Crossfit/Lawrenceville Market. Marie unselfishly volunteered to take my place when it appeared the weather would preclude me being at Market. Sarah Rockey and Marie Wheeler braved the cold temperatures to allow Market pickup to happen for both Crossfit and Hamilton Mill Members. Our Lilburn Market Coordinator, Kathy Barnes made the trek to the Crossfit/Lawrenceville, also braving the cold temps inside the Market space to accept and check in the Market orders load the items you ordered, drove to Lilburn, unloaded, set-up and ran the Lilburn Market. You all have my un-ending gratitude for your passion and dedication to our Market.


We are a community of people who believe in procuring the best food for ourselves and our families that is fresh, clean, nutrient dense and grown/produced locally. It is not uncommon on Market Day, hearing Members share recipes, discuss products or the latest ‘food news’. The Coordinators, Volunteers and I so enjoy seeing you all and being a part of connecting you with the ‘best of the best’ local Farmers/Producers and Artisans. Please consider joining us as a Volunteer. Is a few hours once a week, biweekly, one a month to much to ask to help your Community? Please contact Maryanne at 404-432-4337 and I will put you in contact with our Volunteer Coordinator, Susan Coker. We need your help – your time!


With the cold weather and the 2 snow events last week, I was busy in the kitchen. I cooked the Chuck Roast I had ordered from Heritage Farm in the Crock Pot with the little Cream Potatoes and Carrots from Burnell Farms an Organic Onion, spices and WOW ~ it was fabulous! Flavorful and great texture! This is a perfect slow cook meal!


Not too long ago, I was discussing Bone Broth with Pat Gibbon a Member of the Crossfit/Lawrenceville Market. I lamented that it seems I am constantly making Bone Broth because I consume it daily but also want enough to use in soups or use in other recipes. Being a fellow Bone Broth Warrior, Pat explained that she uses her large electric roaster to make her broth. Hmmmm, I have one of those that sits on the shelf, only pulled out once or twice a year to roast the holiday Turkey! Now, instead of ending up with a quart or two of Bone Broth, I am rewarded with a couple of gallons! What a great idea you shared Miss Pat and I certainly am enjoying the fruits of your wisdom! Thank you!


This past week, I tried a new combination consisting of Alpaca Bones, a few Water Buffalo Bones, Lamb Necks Bones and Beef Soup Bones and the result was a wonderful, rich and complex Bone Broth! The meat was picked from the Bones and the remainder of the Chuck Roast added with Carrots, Potatoes, Onions, Brussell Sprouts, Cabbage, Peas, Tomatoes, Green Beans and a little Kale plus some spices and I created a hearty Veggie Soup! Every item in the soup were items purchased through the Market. Some were fresh and some were from the freezer, put up from last year’s Harvest! What is your latest creation?


Specials, New Items, Updates


Although Lamb was a staple of my family’s diet, it was tradition in our home to have a roasted Leg of Lamb on Easter. Greg of Heritage Farm has Leg of Lamb on special this week and I want to take advantage of this sale since Easter is April 5th! He also had the Rib Steak and Minced (Ground) Lamb offered on sale this week!


Greg has also added a Bulk Pack – Organ Feet and Bones consisting of Soup Bones, Pig Feet, Lamb Bones, Fat Back, Chicken Necks and Backs, Turkey Necks, Ham Hocks, Organ Meat. This is 20#‘s of various items for $30.00!! This is a phenomenal deal and if you make your own Pet Food, it is a fabulous find. Needless to say, I got one Bulk Pack for the Black Lab! The offering is limited in number and in frequency of availability! So, grab it now if you want it! You will not be disappointed!


The freezer at Crossfit/Lawrenceville Market still has several packages of frozen Yellow Squash, which Farmer Ricky Brown of Back River Farm put up after the harvest this summer. Perfect to add to soups or casseroles. Please email me if you would like a package to be included with your order this week. Email order for Yellow Squash


Burnell Farms is going strong bringing us some great winter veggies! Broccoli, Brussell Sprouts, Huge heads of Savoy Cabbage, Carrots, yummy Cauliflower, Kale and Romaine Lettuce are all listed in their offerings this week. Tammy just added Young Spinach. I’m in…


I spoke with Doug Ruling of Doug’s Garden yesterday and although he lost his Winter Crops this year, his seedlings for late Winter, Spring and early Summer Crops are growing profusely in his green house. His offerings will be back with us before you know it! Doug is creating some surprises in his offerings for early Spring – look for hints in the next couple of weeks! I think you will be pleasantly surprised!


The Veggie Patch lost power in their green houses in the first snow/ice event a couple of weeks ago. Some items made it through and are listed in their offerings. Andrew and crew are working hard, harvesting and planting! Did you know The Veggie Patch also has other offerings? Check our their Herbs (medicinal and culinary), Pickles, Sauces and Juices and Bloody Mary Mix!


Carrell Farms has delicious Water Buffalo and they have recently added Alpaca to their offerings. This week at all Markets, there will be samples of Alpaca Sausages! Cranberry-Sage and Basil-Sun Dried Tomato sound like intriguing combinations and something that must be tried!


Between Marie of Bakery on Brooks, our Gluten Free Master Baker and Dabrielle of My Daily Bread, our Whole Grains Master Baker, we can all enjoy fresh, organic, local Baked Goods. From Breads to Paleo Treats, Cookies to Cornbread these creative and talented ladies can supply us with nutritious products for our families.

Markets close at 8:00pm Monday. Please remember that minimums must be met for each Market to ensure delivery by our Farmers! Be sure and get your order in and thank you for supporting our LOCAL Farmers!

United States Virgin Islands:  This Week in VI Locally Grown!


Hello VI Locally Grown members,

The heart of the growing season is upon us, and we are glad to be brining a wider selection each week to the market. This week, we will bring our delicious certified organic heirloom tomatoes, and cherry tomatoes. We aren’t sure how many we will have, so we are not listing them here in the market, they will be first-come-first-serve!

Also note the introduction of the moringa powder and capsules from Moringa Lion/ Ridge to Reef Farm, some of the only certified organic moringa available on the market today. Discover the miracle bundle of benefits from this amazing superfood grown right here in the rainforest.

Also, don’t forget about your own healing -you can get massage, pilates, or yoga sessions at your own pace through Blessings of Life Farm and their expert instruction. You deserve it!

We look forward to seeing you again this Wednesday at the market.

Blessings,

Ridge to Reef Farm

Champaign, OH:  The Lion Sleeps Tonight


In the jungle, the mighty jungle…
The lion sleeps tonight…
In the jungle, the quiet jungle…
The lion sleeps tonight…
(Token – The Lion Sleeps Tonight)

Well, look at today…March 1, pouring down snow, and living up to the saying…In like a lion…

Let’s just hope that the same saying…Out like a lamb…is also going to happen. Personally, I am done with the winter. I am usually done with winter the day after Christmas. I am ready for sun, warm days, green, growth, and all that my favorite months bring.

But, it’s not all bad on today, March 1…because on this first day of March, we see my favorite month of the year. Yes, once again, we usher in March Madness!! Even sweeter? My team…the Kentucky Wildcats remain undefeated!! We are looking good…very good…to enter this month!!

So, let’s forget the weather, let the lion do it’s thing. Let’s look forward to a college basketball fan’s month that rivals Christmas, and then let’s hope that the lamb is not too far off…

Think about your week, your needs, your orders. The good news is that we will see warmer temperatures as the week progresses. Plan to order, plan to venture out, plan to come see your favorite little local market of love, filled with your favorite local vendors, and where you get to chat with your favorite market volunteers!

Peace and Love,
Cosmic Pam

Stones River Market:  The Market is Back Open - March Schedule Update


Stones River Market

How to contact us:
Our Website: stonesriver.locallygrown.net
On Facebook: www.facebook.com/StonesRiverMarket
On Wednesdays: Here’s a map.

Market News

We dodged a bullet this past week. We did receive the snow that was predicted but fortunately it arrived after everyone had picked up their orders. Temperatures are warming some this week so maybe Spring is not too far away.

Many of you know that I like to keep the Market open all year round. This month I am having to change that. Due to some logistics issues later this month, we will be closed the week of March 15th. Begin planning for that one week closure and stock up on needed items. I will send a reminder notice next week as well.

Other news from the Market:

Frontier Family Farm has added a couple new lettuces. We have really enjoyed having his greens all winter long.

Double Star Bar Farms is adding French Baguettes to his listings of atisinal breads.

Nuance Coffee & Tea has added several new coffees to their offerings this week. They Include: Zambia, Colombian Peaberry, Burundi, and Guatemala. The popular Malawi Mzuzu Peaberry is back in stock too.

There are plenty of other products available this week. Browse the categories to see what your will find.

Thanks so much for your support of Stones River Market, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. We’ll see you on Wednesday at Southern Stained Glass at 310 West Main Street from 5:00 to 6: 30 pm!

Recipes

Please, share your recipes with us on the Recipes tab. We’d all love to know how you use your Stones River Market products, so we can try it too!

I am taking a break from recipes. Look for them to return soon.

I 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!

John
