Conway, AR:  Market Reminder

Greetings Conway Locally Grown Community,

This is a reminder that the market closes tonight at 10pm. Have a great day.

Melody Lane Co-op:  February 18, 2013 - Kombucha Workshop this week

Visit The Market any time between now and 7:00pm Tuesday to place your order.

Pick up is every Thursday, 3:00pm – 7:00pm, at Sandra’s home in Roswell.


Do you like kombucha? “What is kombucha,” you ask? You may know it as GT’s or Synergy brand beverages, available in the refrigerated section at most health food stores. Kombucha is a fizzy probiotic tea. Not only does it taste great, it also has many reported health benefits. But did you know you can make it at home in your own kitchen at a fraction the cost of store-bought? I can show you how. There are still a few spots left for the Kombucha workshop at my house this Thursday. Reserve your spot by going to The Market and finding the Kombucha workshop under the category WPRKSHOPS & EVENTS. If you can’t make it this Thursday, I will have kombucha starter kits with detailed instructions available soon.

I am also looking forward to the co-op meeting coming up on Thursday, February 28, 2013. We will meet at my house at 6:00pm to discuss ideas for the future of the co-op and volunteer opportunities.

Suwanee Whole Life Co-op:  Seafood Minimums not met- Still time to order

Hello Members,

There are a few seafood items that the minimum for bulk pricing was not met. I’m going to extend the deadline to order until 5pm TODAY for seafood only. If you would like any of the seafood items please email me at

At the end of the day, if we still haven’t met the minimums, I will contact those members that have already ordered to give the option of non-discounted pricing. I will place our order tomorrow (Tuesday) and pick up will be the following Tuesday on 2/26.

Below are the seafood items that we still need orders to meet the minimum:

Salmon Boneless Skinless Portions – 6 oz (7 orders needed) $8.50 each

Wild Pacific Calamari 1 lb (3 orders needed) $6.25 each

If you have any questions please let me know.

Thank you,

Champaign, OH:  This just in!

Wow! Do I have some scoop for you! For a limited time only, X-Cel Feeds has just reduced their price on all Organic Feeds $2 each! What a great way to treat your animals to an organic option! The discount is already updated in their pricing so shop on! So cool! I know your chickens would be clucking at the news! (If you don’t have any, I’ll record mine and share;)). Thanks X-Cel!

Mid-Georgia:  Heron Bay Farmers' Market


Ordering for Heron Bay’s Farmers’ Market begins at 8 am today and continues until Thur at 10 pm. Delivery is Saturday between 4 and 4:30. We’ve shortened the drop off time.

Take a look at what will be available this week. I know the Sell Farm is running out of beef and down to a few pounds of ground beef, a couple stews and cubed steak. They still do have a number of steaks, but not many. Not sure when or if they will have more this year?

Thanks for your patronage.


Cedar Grove Farm:  Cedar Grove Farm CSA Availability for February 21

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I’ll keep it short tonight as we are running late. Things are plugging along slowly. The cold is keeping things down a bit but the winter favorites are still coming. Signs of spring are all around, too. Dylan turned the first beds for spring planting and we brought in a load of worm castings down from Jack’s Baits in Pickens, SC. And, all the rain bodes for a good spring season.

The Market is open. Hope you can find something you like.

Regards, Farmer Jay

Atlanta Locally Grown:  Available for Saturday February 23

We have quite a few goodies for you this week. The mushrooms are looking nice this week along with a list of veggies that is 49 items long. I am sure you can find some wonderful fair for this weeks meals.

Welcome Atlanta Bake Shop to the market. For starters they have a wonderful Piedmont Park Cupcake in a Jar.

We have a few more heritage hog reservations.

Remember you have at least 21 meals to plan for this week, 28+ if you include your snacks. We hope some of your selections come from our efforts. We enjoy being your farmers.

Thank you for all your support. Please remember to have your orders placed by 8PM on Wednesday. Pick ups are on Saturday from 9 to 9:45 at the Piedmont Green Market (Double B Farm booth), Sandy Springs Green Market (Taylorganic booth)(We will be here from 10:15-11 for pick ups only).
