Patchwork Online Market:  Market is now open for ordering 24/7!


To all of you who filled out our feedback survey, thank you! We are hearing that one of the main reasons for not shopping in the market is becuase of the short window for ordering. So we are now keeping the market open for ordering 24/7! We did get other feedback which we’ll be addressing soon.

If you did fill out the survey before Thursday, we’ll be adding credit to your account in appreciation as promised. Your credits will appear in your account by Sunday night, but you can go ahead and order anytime, and the credits will apply to your order when they are in. (we have one survey entry that doesn’t have a name, so please let us know if you didn’t put your name in)

*Please note that orders placed by Monday at 7am will be filled the following Wednesday. Orders placed after Monday at 7am will be filled Wednesday of the following week.

It was infectious to bop around to, and it’s how this market makes me feel…just always a big Happy dance!

Let’s all get happy, together, and groove our orders in!!!

Let’s do this…let’s all get…Happy!

The Cumming Harvest:  Weblog Entry

Good morning,

We apologize in the delay for opening the market. The main server had an Internet connection issue. And the website was down. We believe now the error has been fixed, and we shouldn’t have any issues moving forward with orders.

It’s summertime, and it’s hot. But that means we have lots of great vegetables to choose from.
