Champaign, OH:  Give local...


As we head into the last few hours of the market this week I wanted to offer up a reminder to consider our wonderful vendors when selecting gifts for your loved ones for the holidays. From local maple syrup, honey or garlic, to baked goods like homemade noodles, spices, herbs, and breads, we have many items that family or friends would be happy to receive. Many items are shelf-stable and could be wrapped and placed under the tree or in a stocking too. While we can’t possibly name them all, please remember that local dollars spent on local items stays mostly local! And if it cannot be placed under the tree, start a new tradition of gifting it into their refridgerater or freezer! Blame it on the elves and deposit that roast or sausage right into their freezer! What a surprise it would be! Taking a road trip? Order extra cookies or a loaf of Cosmic bread for the ride! The options are endless!

Let’s work hard to make your cyber Monday really virtual Tuesday and support your local food providers!

Spa City Local Farm Market Co-op:  One more market before Christmas!


Just a reminder that the Co-op market will close tomorrow night, and that there is only one more market before Christmas. Our vendors offer lots of goodies that would make great gifts and stocking stuffers, and buying from them keeps your holiday dollars local.

On another note, be sure that if you need to contact someone regarding volunteering, that should go to our awesome volunteer coordinator Karen Harbut, not Karen Holcomb. Karen Harbut’s email is kgharbut@aol.com.

Enjoy the holiday season, and thanks for your support of Spa City Co-op.

ALFN Local Food Club:  Market Closes Tomorrow!


The market closes tomorrow! Get your order in! There’s a fable about the boy who forgot to order before the market closed, but I can’t remember it. Just let it be known, he met a grim fate!
Sincerely,
Sam Hedges
