Manchester Locally Grown:  Reminder: Ordering Closes at 10 pm



Manchester Locally Grown market





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

216 East Fort Street, Manchester, TN

If you don’t see a map, click on the address link.




Good morning!




This is just a friendly reminder to place your order online for this week. Market ordering will close tonight at 10 pm. Please don’t forget to place your order soon! But if you do forget to order, give me (Linda) a call Wednesday morning. I will most likely be able to get hold of the farmers and place a late order for you.

Remember to hit that last “submit” button. I really dislike disappointing a customer who comes 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 this confirmation, please contact Linda as soon as you realize it’s missing.

Also please go to our Facebook page and like, comment, and share this week’s post. Facebook isn’t allowing me to post on multiple sites, or sometimes post multiple photos. So please help us spread the word. Surveys indicate that word of mouth is the most effective form of advertisement. Please help us advertise our fantastic growing market!

See you on Thursday!


Blessings,
Michael & Linda

Bump

Order now through 5 pm Thursday February 7th for Saturday February 9th Pickup, (or contact me if you want a different day, we do have some flexibility.)

Remember to tell me when you want to pick up!

Hi All, Just want to share that I have been getting back into fermenting again. Let me know if you are interested in getting fresh cultures for Kombucha, Milk Kefir, or Water Kefir. My Kefir grains especially have been growing fast. The Kombucha scoby is a little slower about it.

Please let me know what micro greens or shoots you are interested in and I can start growing enough to make them available (most take less than 2 weeks.)
Also, if you want me to list super foods like Purslane, let me know, I have it volunteering wild here and I will likely also have nettles come winter/spring season.

Send me a message if you are interested in Getting Channel Catfish.

If you have any particular requests, let me know I’m happy to grow to order.

Sign in to order. https://yalaha.locallygrown.net/market

You have to sign in to see the add to cart button. Then set the number and click the add to cart button on the items you want to buy (it is the little picture right next to the quantity box.) Remember you need to check out before your order will be placed.
Remember to let me know when you want to pick up on Sat or maybe even Friday late afternoon or on Sunday. (If I don’t send you an e-mail confirmation of your order and pick up time, please make sure you checked out and completed your order.)

Fresh Harvest, LLC:  Fresh Harvest - Last Call




Market News

Hello!
There are lots of great veggies left including spinach, lettuce, beets, carrots, radishes and Asian greens. Are mushrooms a veggie? We have plenty. I’m kind of intrigued by the Cultured Butter in the Cheese Category. There are always extra items available to purchase at pickup including bread, baguettes and cookies from Dozen Bakery. You’ll notice that I don’t do a hard sell on the bakery items since the unsold items come home with me! The Butcher’s Cut Special from Bear Creek Farms is still available, as well a wide variety of duck products from Wedge Oak Farms.

The Market will remain open until Tuesday evening for you to place an order for this week. Next delivery day will be February 20th.

Here is some information on how Fresh Harvest works.
*If you see an item as Sold Out, write in the Comment section at check out that you would like that item if more becomes available. We’ll try our best to add it to your order.
• If you recruit a new customer to Fresh Harvest and they open an account with a $50 deposit, we will credit your account $10 for each new customer who signs up. They will need to tell me your name, so that I can credit your account. Word of mouth has been our best advertising. Any help that you can provide is greatly appreciated.
• Every week, we leave orders at the church for customers who cannot arrive at Trinity before 6pm. This has worked well for those who have difficulty with the 4-6pm window. Please let me know if you need me to leave your order at the church.
• The bag that you receive each week is to be brought back with your next order. We have been negligent in telling new customers how this works. Don’t feel bad if you return multiple bags, it happens all the time.
• We’re into reusing and recycling. Our clean egg cartons, honey jars, paper and plastic bags, berry containers are some of the items that we can reuse. If we can’t reuse the returned items, we’ll recycle them.
• We do guarantee everything that we sell. If you ever have a problem, please let us know and we will credit your account.
• If there are other products or growers that you think should be a part of Fresh Harvest, please let me know.

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

If you need to text me, my number is 615-838-0428.

Recipes


Roasted Beet and Carrot Salad with Watercress
1 pound beets, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch thick wedges
1 pound carrots, peeled and cut on bias in 1/4-inch-thick slices
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt and ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon TruBee honey
1 medium shallot, minced (about 3 tablespoons)
6 ounces watercress about 4 cups (or substitute if unavailable)
1. Adjust oven rack to lowest position, place large rimmed baking sheet on rack, and heat oven to 500 degrees. Toss beets and carrots with 2 tablespoons oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and sugar in large bowl. Remove baking sheet from oven and, working quickly, carefully transfer beets and carrots to sheet and spread in even layer. (Do not wash bowl.) Roast until vegetables are tender and well-browned on one side, 20 to 25 minutes (do not stir during roasting).
2. Meanwhile, whisk remaining tablespoon oil, vinegar, honey, shallots, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in now-empty bowl.
3. Toss hot vegetables with vinaigrette and cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Stir in watercress, transfer to serving platter, and serve.
