Champaign, OH:  Sweet Tuesday Morning


Sweet Tuesday morning
You came and you smiled…
Badfinger-Sweet Tuesday Morning

So, here we are, on a bright and shiny Tuesday morning. Sweet Tuesday morning…for some reason, it’s the nicest morning, for me. It’s not Monday, screaming at you. It’s not Wednesday, where everyone is ready to jump into the latter part of the week. It’s not Thursday where you are counting the minutes until Friday. It’s not Friday where the excitement is high for the weekend. And, it’s not Sunday, when you begin wishing you could rewind to Friday.

It’s Tuesday…and, it’s groovy…and it’s peaceful, all on it’s own. Just like this market…peaceful, easy to use, and bright and shiny, all on it’s own.

Also, Tuesday is the last full day to get your orders in before it closes, tomorrow, at 6am.

This week you will see a lot of vendors in vacation mode. We have vacationing vendors, and we have vendors, like myself/Hippie and the Farmer/Oakview Farm Meats…who are catering a wedding, on Thursday afternoon, and cannot be at the market.

Never fear…everyone will be back, next week! Except your market manager, who will be on one more week of vacation, because I am fleeing to the beach, to hang out with my parents for a few days.

Also…at this time, we are also changing our dairy supplier. Dugan Road is no longer with us, so we will be supplying your milk needs with Indian Creek Creamery.

We also welcome Truck Patch Naturals, coming in a few months, with all of their microgreens!!!

And, we have added Hemp body products! And, let me tell you…after looking at the sweet face of the vendor, and her sister, their skin glows…and, it’s all because of these lotions and creams…

As always…I love you all…and, I will see you, soon!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Fresh Harvest, LLC:  Hakurei, Microgreens & Broccoli




Market News

Hello!
There were some late additions to the Market including Hakurei turnips, microgreens, pea or sunflower shoots and there is still plenty of broccoli.

The Market will remain open until Tuesday evening for you to place an order for this week.

Here is some information on how Fresh Harvest works.
*Orders can be placed without receiving the Sunday email. I try to open the Market between 7 and 8pm on Sunday. Sometimes I run a little late. Just go to the website: http://freshharvest.locallygrown.net/welcome to see if the Market is open.
*If you see an item as Sold Out, write in the Comment section at check out that you would like that item if more becomes available. We’ll try our best to add it to your order.
*PayPal payments have to be manually added to your account. There will be a delay to crediting your account due to me needing to take time to do the bookkeeping. I also have to go to each account with cash or check payments. These are sometimes delayed by procrastination or being busy. You can still place an order even though it may cause your account to be “overdrawn”. There is no penalty for going into the minus column. Sometimes I’m a little slow in getting to the bank to make deposits, but it eventually happens.
• If you recruit a new customer to Fresh Harvest and they open an account with a $50 deposit, we will credit your account $10 for each new customer who signs up. They will need to tell me your name, so that I can credit your account. Word of mouth has been our best advertising. Any help that you can provide is greatly appreciated.
• Every week, we leave orders at the church for customers who cannot arrive at Trinity before 6pm. This has worked well for those who have difficulty with the 4-6pm window. Please let me know if you need me to leave your order at the church.
• The bag that you receive each week is to be brought back with your next order. We have been negligent in telling new customers how this works. Don’t feel bad if you return multiple bags, it happens all the time.
• We’re into reusing and recycling. Our clean egg cartons, honey jars, paper and plastic bags, berry containers are some of the items that we can reuse. If we can’t reuse the returned items, we’ll recycle them.
• We do guarantee everything that we sell. If you ever have a problem, please let us know and we will credit your account.
• If there are other products or growers that you think should be a part of Fresh Harvest, please let me know.

Thanks for your support, and I will see you on Wednesday!

Market News

The rains this weekend sure felt nice, even though I was out camping in it. The ground was rather parched, after the ridiculously long string of days in the 90s we had, and all the plants really needed it. I thought maybe we’d get a break from the heat, but seems there’s a couple more days in the 90s ahead of us. Looking at the end of the week, though, I see nights in the 50s in our future! That is great news for all the leafy greens and other fall crops that have been struggling in the heat, but it also will really slow down the summer crops that have been hanging on. Many of our growers extend their seasons with hoop houses and other protections from the cold, but if you’re a stickler for tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers grown out in the direct sun, you’ve only got a month or so left of those.

Thank you so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes Athens such a great area in which to live. We’ll see you on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!

Other Area Farmers Markets

The Athens Farmers Market is open on Saturdays at Bishop Park, and Wednesday evenings downtown at Creature Comforts. You can catch the news on their website. The West Broad Farmers Market is back as well, Saturdays from 9 to 1, and you can watch for weekly news here: http://www.athenslandtrust.org/west-broad-farmers-market/. The Comer Farmers’ Market is open on Saturday mornings from 9am to noon. Check www.facebook.com/comerfm for more information. The Oconee County farmers market is held every Saturday 8 to noon in downtown Watkinsville. Washington, GA also has a lovely little Saturday market, running on Saturdays from 9 to 2pm. You can learn all about them here: www.washingtonfarmersmkt.com Folks to the east can check out the Hartwell Farmers Market, which starts bright and early on Saturday morning from 7am to noon, and Tuesday afternoons from 11 to 3pm. If you know of any other area markets operating, please let me know.

All of these other markets are separate from ALG (including the Athens Farmers Market) but many growers sell at multiple markets. Please support your local farmers and food producers, where ever you’re able to do so!

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest, and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible!

Fresh Harvest, LLC:  Fresh Harvest for September 15th




Market News

Hello!
The average first frost date for our area is one month from today. I’m looking forward to that light dusting and cool temps on the 15th of October, mark your calendars. For some reason, I keep thinking that our offerings will be diminishing at this time of the year. But not at all, we have quite a large and varied list this week. This same errant thinking caused me to believe that Anson and I could pack the orders last week in our usual 2 hour span. It was a little hectic, but we got it done although Anson finished around 5:30. I didn’t even get to show off Abe’s 30 lb. melon that I bought. You too could have one this week. Arugula and green beans are back on the Market as well as Rocky Glade Farm’s broccoli.

I am setting up in a different location at Trinity. There’s a big tree diagonally across from where I’ve been setting up, near Sharondale. It’s flat and has more shade.

Lots of fine items from Wedge Oak and Bear Creek Farms.

Dozen Bakery cookies and breads, eggs, granola, honey, and coffee are all in abundance.

You have until Tuesday night to place your order.
Thanks for your support, and I will see you on Wednesday!
