Hi All:

Just a reminder for those who placed an order this month that the pick up is tonight at my house – 118 Shepard Ave – starting at 4:30.

It’s likely I’ll need to step out at 5 for a bit due to an unexpected meeting. If so, I will have your order bagged and waiting for you inside my outer front door and marked with your name and the amount of the order so you can pick it up at your leisure.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks a million.

Champaign, OH:  A Day In The Life

Woke up, fell out of bed
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up I noticed I was late…
(A Day In The Life-The Beatles)

This lyric is pretty much summing up my day. From dusk to dawn, I felt like I was trying to keep tempo, keep my time, but with turn, I ran into a friend, or I took a phone call, or I got caught up in one thing or another, all the while baking for the market, planning for the market, and suddenly, after an amazing market, here I am, fresh off of a phone call with a dear, dear friend, more off duty market work, and here we are…I looked up, and noticed I was late to open…

So, my lovely customers, I bring you the market to start your week…I look forward to seeing your orders, and bringing you the love, once again…

A day in the life…

Champaign, OH:  Thank You!

Good Morning, little local market of love customers!

Just a quick shout out to our most important part of this market…you, the customer!!

We have only been back, live, in this brand new year, but you have been showing us SO much love, and we wanted to just give a quick, Thank You!!

Over the weeks, we will be adding a few more vendors. I just need to carve out the time to give them the exact ways of the market, so that they can get their products listed.

We are so fortunate to have our year round lettuce, with Old Souls Farm, so make sure to take advantage of this…your salads will never be the same.

Also…all of us who begin their growing, now, inside greenhouses, barns, high tunnels, are getting ready to plant the seeds that we continue to save, season to season! I LOVE when all of the produce vendors start showing up, on this market, with the spring and summer offerings!

Our soap and oil girl, Laura, at ELM Tree Essentials is off, for now, on a little maternity break. They are awaiting the arrival of a new babe, but she will be back, soon! Congrats to the Miller family!!

The rest of us, are here, weekly, with the year round offerings, making us so unique to the seasonal, outdoor markets. We love to see you, each and every week, and we strive to bring you the best of the best!

Also, coming…the Farmer part of the Hippie and the Farmer will be adding his super amazing Greek yogurt, made with the milk from our friends, and market vendors, of Indian Creek Distillery! And, Mark makes the yogurt using the A2 milk!! Making it easier to digest…and, even this Hippie who stays away from most dairy, can eat this yogurt with no side splitting pains!!

So, basically…thank you for loving all of us, and if you feel so inclined, turn the lovelight on to your friends, your neighbors, your family members…bring everyone to the weekly party!
