Dothan, Alabama:  April 20, 2019 M@D Abbreviated Newsletter



A FEW QUICK NOTES

Thank you for your patience and understanding that Market At Dothan did not send out a “proper” newsletter earlier today. Sometimes life just takes over and such was the case. Nothing went exactly as planned or expected, yet when it counted we were exactly when and where we needed to be. No doubt if you’ve lived long enough you’ve experienced something similar!

We don’t want to take a lot of your time so this week’s M@D notes will be brief:

1. Avalon Farms will continue to list products on the Market website the next couple of weeks but Wendy will not be making deliveries to Daleville or Enterprise. If you live in one of those areas do not fear! We are making arrangements to cover that and will notify you who to look for and if there are any adjustments in the schedule.

2. Welcome back Sweet Acre Farm!. Our new customers may not be familiar with these great folks but they are sweet Market friends of many years and we’re excited to have them listing again. This week they have Little Gem Romaine Lettuce, Thyme, Spearmint, Peppermint, Oregano, Endive and Ready-to-use Powdered Turmeric!

3. We missed updating Danny’s Greens before 5 pm so if you can’t live without his lettuce it has been relisted along with more green onions and CARROTS.

So that’s it! Have a blessed Easter and we look forward to seeing you next week!

Northeast GA Locally Grown:  Market is open for orders!


Good Evening Locavores, Northeast Georgia Locally Grown is open for orders!
Go to the market >>
Fresh Vegetables
Clean Meats
Baked Goods with Organic ingredients
Pastured Eggs
See all products

Market stays open from Fridays 9 p.m. until at least 9 p.m. Mondays!

Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!

PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30 p.m.

If you do not get an email ORDER CONFIRMATION right after you order then your order is NOT complete. Log back in and your order might still be there waiting for you to check out! If you have any trouble or questions at all, we are here to help; simply reply to this email or call Andrew at 770.530.3287

Statesboro Market2Go:  The Market is Open!


Thanks for shopping with us! Find lots of fresh, delicious, local produce, fresh herbs, milk, goat cheese, seafood, shrimp, and meats. We also have items that are already prepared and ready to eat, made from local ingredients.

Strawberries, Asparagus, and Green Onions are coming in now – look for them from Jacobs Produce.

We are pleased to welcome Bootleg Farm to Market2Go! You may have seen them in years past at the Saturday market with their delicious goat cheeses. They now have their chèvre, mozzarella, and feta cheeses online and will be adding more varieties!

Remember we have changed locations for our Statesboro pickup to the Statesboro Convention & Visitors Bureau at 222 S. Main St. Hours will remain the same, and our Sylvania pickup will remain the same at Victory Garden General Store.

Click to read about our exciting changes. We are eliminating the annual membership fee and in its place — because we have to maintain support for the market — we’re instituting a surcharge of 7% on each order, beginning on March 1st.

The Statesboro Main Street Farmers Market is celebrating Easter and Earth Day this Saturday, April 20th with Easter egg dyeing for the kids! Sarah Ross, of Social Roots will be there, giving away packets of heirloom seeds!

Our featured vendor this week is 4 & 20 Bakers. a veteran-owned bakery offering Wicked good food! featuring Southern Italian, wood fired pizza, designer cupcakes, vegan, gluten-free food and desserts, beer, wine, mead and more. Their brick-and-mortar Sixpence Kitchen is located at 115 Ennis St. in Sylvania, Georgia.

Our featured sponsor this week is AgSouth, a loan agency offering farm, land, and home financing, located at 40 South Main St. in Statesboro.

Berea Gardens:  Season Opens!


It has been a nice Spring for getting things started in our high tunnels, and we are ready to start taking orders for Wednesday, April 24 pick-ups. In the list of what is available I have included the things we have planted, but don’t necessarily have ready yet so you have an idea of what is coming soon. Please pay attention to the quantities available and only order those items that indicate quantities above zero.

The Calhoun County Farmer’s Market will be opening on May 1 from 9 to 1, and our pick-up rimes will continue to be on Wednesdays from 4 to 7 PM. Please read our Q’s and A’s page again to re familiarize yourselves to our process.

Thank you all, and hope to see you soon!

Blessings,
Bob Gregory
