Conway, AR:  News and Tuesday Reminder


Dear Conway Locally Grown Community,

This is a reminder that the market closes tonight at 10pm, so get your orders in! If you forgot something Sunday or Monday, just place another order today! If you like lamb, check out Falling Sky Farm’s new selection of lamb cuts – this is delicious pasture-raised lamb and it won’t last long folks.

Barnhill Orchards will be hosting a field day/high tunnel dedication on the afternoon of April 21st. There’s going to be a fish fry ya’ll – sounds like it’s going to be a great time. Here’s the signup link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050B4DABAF22A31-customer

Conway Locally Grown will be leading a tour of Ratchford, Falling Sky, and Armstead Mountain Farms on May 11. Look for tickets on the market page next week. Bring a friend who’s not already a member of CLG, and we’ll give you two tickets for the price of one!

Fisher's Produce Tulsa:  First CSA delivery tomorrow


Hello Friends,

April is finally here! and I am getting ready to head out into the rain to harvest the first batch of lettuce, spinach, and other vegetables for our first CSA delivery. It is a bit cold out, but I can’t complain about the rain. We need all that we can get!

This week’s CSA shares will likely include: asparagus, spring salad mix, kale or bok choi, radishes and salad turnips, and maybe a few green onions.

Since things are cold and slow, we are not posting any extra vegetables for sale on the online this week. Hopefully we will have more by next week.

Delivery Schedule:

Since Brookside Market is not open this month, we will be delivering to the Spirit Tower parking between 18th and Boston and Baltimore avenues. We will be on the South end of the parking lot near to the Baltimore side.

18th and Baltimore: 12:00-1:00pm (come by 12:30, if you can)

320 S. Boston office delivery: 1:15 pm

Spirit Event Center: 2:00 pm

Okmulgee (with my grandmother, LaDell Fisher): 2:30 pm

See you all soon!

CO-OP NEWS



I was so wrapped up in the big meat delivery this weekend I forgot to send out the weekly email. Sorry! There is not much new to share this week so I will keep it short.

A new grower/producer has joined the co-op. Good Shepherd Herbals provides herbal teas, salves, and syrups that strenghthen and heal the body. You can find out more at www.GoodShepherdHerbals.com and look for their items in The Market in the coming weeks.

Our workshop on Fermented Vegetables is this Thursday and it seems to be very popular. It’s going to be a packed house! If you are planning on coming please RSVP as soon as possible so I can make sure to get enough supplies for everyone. Also, I have added two more workshop/demonstrations to the schedule, however they are not up on the Facebook page yet. The topics are sourdough breads and canning foods. They will both be held at my house, as usual, but will be taught by other members of the co-op. If you have a topic to share that you think may benefit others, please let me know and I will be happy to host it in my kitchen.

Have a great week!
Sandra

The Wednesday Market:  Don't Forget to Place Your Order!


We hope that everyone had a great Easter weekend. Welcome to a new week – one that finally feels like Spring!

If you have not yet placed your order for The Wednesday Market, this is a reminder that you still have time to do so. Log on to http://wednesdaymarket.locallygrown.net/market. The system will accept orders until 10 tonight.

Please remember to pick up your orders between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday. If you are having an emergency, please let us know. We understand that sometimes emergencies arise that no one has control over, and for those situations, we extend our peace and grace.

We appreciate the busy lifestyles of our customers, and we know that sometimes, remembering to pick up your order may slip your minds. On such occasions, the market managers will call you with a friendly reminder that your order needs to be picked up. We just don’t want the beautiful, fresh, healthy products you ordered languishing at the market! Please help us keep our market working efficiently!

Thank you for supporting local agriculture.
