Manchester Locally Grown:  The Link to Order


Sorry, I missed the link. Here is the link to the market page.

Manchester Locally Grown:  Manchester Locally Grown is open!


Wow! Happy summer! Have you noticed how our weather can swing from winter to summer in the space of a few days? (sometimes a few hours) I worked outside today in a sleeveless top, for the first time this season. For those who know me, I was not even wearing a jacket!

We are still in “winter mode” with lots of dried herbs & spices, and bath & beauty products; as well as baked goods & honey. Grundy Greens’ spring greens & Frontier Family Farm’s spinach are available in quantity. Don’t forget Wayne Diller’s popcorn for a healthy & delicious dessert. The daffodils are done at Dogwood Valley, but there are some new hanging baskets & houseplants, as well as a new perennial or two, on the market this week.

Check out our market offerings this week here: http://manchester.locallygrown.net/market/index .

Market News


I just want to say thank you to all of you for helping to support your local food system by ordering food from your local farmers thru the South Cumberland Food Hub. Every purchase you make strengthens the infrastructure needed to sustain a local food system in our area. There has never been a more important time to ensure that we have access to good, real food that is superior in nutrition and taste. The more we purchase from the small farmers, the more we can stabilize our supply of good food.

Genetically modified food is on the increase and one way to avoid it is to purchase from the farmers you know. The use of genetically modified foods is quite alarming in several ways. It is detrimental to our environment, to the independence of the small farmers, and damaging to our health. GMO’s are in our soybeans, soy oil, corn, potatoes, squash, canola oil, cottonseed oil, papaya, tomatoes and dairy products. And how many products contain by-products of corn and soy? All of these go unlabeled. And there are more coming that we will know nothing about because labeling laws are not required. There is no way to know how the spliced genes in plants will recombine with the next generations. This is especially scary when you realize that the biotech corporations use antibiotic-resistant genes, bacteria and viruses as the gene “markers” for the intended genes they splice. How many people will develop allergies to these foreign proteins introduced to our food thru gene splicing? Allergies manifest as inflammation, and not just runny/stuffy noses, inflammation happens in the arteries and that’s what causes clogging. Inflammation can happen anywhere in the body and cause untold health problems. There is no way to know just how these unnatural genes affect our bodies once ingested, but it is easy to see that we have a serious obesity and disease problem in America. Never before has there been so much cancer, thyroid trouble, yeast overgrowth, etc.

Buying local food from the small and mid-sized farmer is your way of saying “no” to GMO’S and “yes” to your health and the health of your customers.

Thank you for supporting your local farmers!

Risa
