Superior Seasons:  Top Chefs


Good Day

Reminder! Ordering is still open, CLICK HERE, until Monday at 5pm for Wednesday options. We don’t have a Wednesday pickup option for the winter season, so form a buying group and we’ll deliver to your office! Visit the Q and A section for any questions – but basically as long as the order is $25, delivery is free.

Top Chefs
Some of the top chefs in Thunder Bay are using this website! Congratulations to The Sovereign Room for winning the recent competition and to Northern Unique (also a vendor on the site!) for their showing. I know these guys both use a lot of local ingredients. We’d also be remiss if we didn’t mention Caribou Restaurant as they’re by far and away the best customer on the site. We also get frequent orders from both Hilldale Gardens Retirement homes, Rural Routes Children Centre and Sweet Pea’s Restaurant and Catering. A Fine Fit Catering and Bistro One are also using the website to get some local ingredients regularly. We appreciate everyone’s support, but could use more! Let us know what you need to make this site easier to use. And don’t forget to ask what’s local when you’re out and about to encourage more local ingredients whenever possible. This is true even of for our market vendors – let them know you’re willing to pay a tiny bit more if their locally made products are also made with local ingredients!

Good Growing

Scallion/Green Onion from Oviedo, Fl

In the onion department, Sundew Gardens produces Green Bunching Onions, better known as scallions. Our scallions are grown in wide growing beds of our local sandy soil, mulched with forest leaves, and fertilized with rock dust minerals, seaweed, fish emulsion, and compost. Scallions are one crop where freshness is fundamental to a quality crop. And we pick them mere minutes before delivery.

Sweet Potato

Zucchini Squash from Sarasota, Fl

Zucchini, Cucurbita pepo, is a member of the cucumber and melon family. Inhabitants of Central and South America have been eating zucchini for several thousand years, but the zucchini we know today is a variety of summer squash developed in Italy. Its popularity is due to in large part to its versatility as a cooked vegetable as well as a base for breads and desserts.

Market News


Hello!

Happy Thanksgiving Week! We hope this finds you preparing for a lovely week ahead of good food and loving family and friends.

There is a quick ordering window this week. The Market will close on Monday evening, November 19th for Tuesday, November 20th delivery. Delivery will be up under the porch at Trinity Church from 4 – 6 p.m.

John is on a much deserved vacation with his family this week. Twin Forks Farm bread is also taking the week off. So, there will be no potatoes, bread or granola this week.

However, we’ve got lots of other great stuff for the season – winter squashes, sweet potatoes, pumkins for homemade pumpkin pie, great lettuces and greens for cooking, as well as herbs for your stuffing.

If you ordered a pumpkin pie from Dozen Bakery, a turkey from Wedge Oak Farm, or a cheese tray from Bloomy Rind, those will be ready for you on Tuesday!

We appreciate your support, and are thankful to be able to share this harvest with you

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday!
John and Tallahassee

Green Fork Farmers Market:  Weekly Product List


Dear Green Fork Farmers Market customers,

We will have a market this Wednesday before Thanksgiving so you can get your naturally grown holiday meal ingredients fresh from your local farmers! We have so many great items to make your meals special. Surprise everyone with a large chicken instead of a turkey, and a green salad with fresh tomatoes and cucumbers (grown in hoop houses locally!), microgreens, red onions, and gourmet olives atop lettuce, mesclun mix, spinach, or arugula. For other lovely side dishes, consider brussels sprouts, turnips, mustard greens, collards, baby bok choi, kale, turnip greens, swiss chard, and savory hot pepper scones. We have fresh sage to flavor your chicken, turkey, dressing, and many other dishes. We know you will need chicken or duck eggs for baking, sausage to go in your dressing, and pork neckbones, fatback, or bacon to cook with your greens. For dessert, you must try our new sweet squash tartes and hazelnut macaroons, or our coconut almond torte or fruit popsicles. Honey makes a wonderful gift for your dinner hosts, friends, and family, and we have it in all shapes and sizes—samplers, honey bears, half pints, pints, quarts and half gallons. We also have handmade soap, sugar scrub, lip balm, skin toner, and for sale at the market only—greeting cards, notepads, gift card holders, gift tags, and holiday planners.

You can preorder as usual until Monday at midnight and pick up in the Breezeway at Nightbird Books on Wednesday from 4-7 pm. A few of our farmers will also be at the market and have things available for sale from the table:

Green Fork Farm: Chicken, beef, pork, eggs, fresh sage, microgreens, and handmade greeting cards and gifts.

NWA Natural Produce: Tomatoes, green tomatoes, cucumbers, brussels sprouts, mustard greens, collards, red bunching onions, and cilantro.

Crosses Creek Farm: Honey, honey with comb, and beeswax.

Figgieville: Gourmet olives and—New items!— hazelnut macaroons and sweet squash tartes.

We look forward to providing you with the best local, naturally grown and handmade products available. We’ll see you on Wednesday!
