Market News


So far, so good on this August weather! The crops and the farmers are liking it a lot! We know August is a time of transition – returning from vacations, getting back to a school schedule, maybe returning to a normal routine after a hectic summer! We look forward to having you back with us again! We’ve always got lots of great veggies and other food items to share with you!

This week we have tons of beautiful peppers of all colors and shapes. The first greens of the late summer season. Still some melons available as well – watermelon and cantaloupe!
If you are missing the blueberries, try some blueberry syrup made by our organic blueberry farmer, Blue Honey Farm!

Please remember we rely on word of mouth to get new customers. Please tell your friends , coworkers, and neighbors about us! Maybe you’ll be able to share pick up responsibilities! If your recommended new customer places an order, make sure they mention your name! We’ll give you $10.00 credit in your account!

You have until Tuesday night to place your order.
Thanks for your support.
See you Wednesday!
John and Tallahassee

Miami County Locally Grown:  Enjoy the Fair!

What a beautiful day to enjoy the Miami County Fair!

Be sure to stop by Tin Roof Mobile Food and Adams Greenhouse at the Fair – they’ll soon be back with us on the Virtual Market!

So glad to have Mother Suds Soap Co. back this week, especially with that ultimate summer essential, Baby’s Bottom Salve – in a travel tin!

Hope to see you at pick-up Tuesday, when Amber Lange, Rosebud’s Ranch and Garden, will be my volunteer at pickup – she’ll have a variety of delicious products for you to sample and enjoy!

The market closes TONIGHT at 8pm!!

The Wednesday Market:  Place Your Orders Today

Good afternoon.

The Wednesday Market is open for orders. Please place your order by 10 p.m. Monday. Orders are ready for pick up between 3 and 6 p.m. Wednesday. See the website for this week’s product offerings. Here is the link:

Today is a special day in our family, as my parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this summer, and my siblings and I are sending them on a trip to see the Grand Canyon. Mom and Dad flew out this morning. We are praying for safe travels, blue skies, and happy adventures for them.

Concord Street Sweets is off the Market this week. In Mom’s absence, I will be making the milk run on Wednesday. Right now my plan is to list next week, and hopefully, list some NEW products. Stay tuned for more details.

And, finally, this Tuesday marks the end of the summer for my children, who start back to school on Wednesday. Stephen is entering 9th grade, and Charlie is going into 3rd grade. I don’t anticipate that anyone in the household will get much sleep on Tuesday due to the anxiety of Wednesday morning. Change is good, but the fear of the unknown is nerve-wracking! We will be learning a new traffic pattern, new school start times, new teachers, altogether new routines.

Stephen is taking Agriculture this year as part of the STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) curriculum. He will be a member of the FFA. I look forward to his projects, and we may share them with The Wednesday Market community.

In the meantime, we hope that everyone has a peaceful Sunday, and we’ll see you at the Market.
