Manchester Locally Grown market

216 East Fort Street, Manchester, TN

Good morning!



Welcome to this week’s offerings from your online farmers’ market. Everything you see on our website is the “cream of the crop” from local farmers, the best products picked and made with pride especially for YOU! When you place an order with our farms, you know you are supporting your friends and neighbors, most located within 30 miles of Manchester, Tennessee.

The market will remain open for your orders till Tuesday at 10 pm. Please look around at various categories, since I don’t always notice all the new items to include in the newsletter.

Please be sure to read the section of the page entitled “Important Ordering and Pickup Information.”


Farm News of the Week

Molly Cornelison of Kountry Vittles Baked Goods writes:
Fall weather has peeked its head, so now it’s time to introduce a new item. This is my Flavorful Herb Bread. This yeast bread also contains onions, parsley and oregano. It goes great with any pasta dish, soup or stew. Give it a try this week!



Andra Martens of Sow’s Ear Piggery sends this note:
Deer hunters! Do you need pork fat for making your venison sausage? Sow’s Ear Piggery has 4-6-pound packages of pork back fat available. Our heritage breed pigs receive no antibiotics, hormones, or animal by-products. We use this fat for our household cooking oil, which renders almost pure white. USDA inspected. Comes frozen.

Also for sale, we have bratwurst sausages, which are perfect on a cool fall night. Or maybe a pot of chili using ground pork! Have breakfast for dinner with a package of pork breakfast sausage. We also have beautiful belly sides, in two sizes. Check out these and other cuts in the Market pages.

(L to R) top:
Back fat, Bratwurst sausage.
middle:
Whole side (belly), medium breakfast sausage.
bottom:
Ground pork, tenderized pork cutlet.


From Dogwood Valley Greenhouse:
Pre-ordering is now open for our beautiful Christmas wreaths and kissing balls. We will be able to make only a limited number of each (good help is hard to find!), and when they’re gone, they’re gone. Pre-order price will be in effect till Nov 15, so reserve yours now. We will fill orders as received, beginning about Dec 1. We will also have pink Christmas cacti and several colors of African violets in bloom for Christmas, and you may also reserve those now if you prefer. Just drop me an email to let me know if you want one or more of the potted plants, because they’re not currently available on the market.

Name That “Bug”

We’re a bit disappointed that no one seems to know the answer to this riddle. Come on, give it a try. You may know more about insects than you think!

Riddle: What will this caterpillar grow into?
Bonus: What kind of plant is it on?

All correct answers will be acknowledged in the next edition of the newsletter.

Important Ordering and Pickup Information

PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30pm!

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!
