Gwinnett Locally Grown:  Sunday Market Reminder! Running Wild Alaskan Seafood, LLC Salmon Update!


The Market is open Thursday at 9 – Monday at noon After that, ordering is disabled until Thursday morning. Pick up your order Tuesday from 4:00-7:00 p.m. only at Rancho Alegre Farm at 2225 Givens Road, Dacula, GA 30019. New to The Market? Learn about how it works here.

Salmon Update!




What’s up with the Salmon?
The salmon are running and Bill from Back in Time Farm will be supplying Alaskan Wild Caught salmon through his son, Running Wild Alaskan Seafood, LLC. He is going to Homer, Alaska and will be back with salmon and have it posted for the Market opening on Thursday, August 6th. It will be open to order then but we will be notifying and watching for those who were on the list to make sure their orders are handled first. You may continue to order after the first week until the supply runs out. I’m being told that there may be a chance for a second catch to be added but not guaranteed yet. So if you are wanting salmon, I recommend purchasing while you have the chance.
This deliciously fresh salmon is carefully selected directly from the fishermen’s nets from the cold Alaskan waters before it ever enters the ship’s hold. Only the best is chosen to become part of " Running Wild Alaskan Seafood’s" premium offerings. The fish is immediately bled and iced down before making the short boat ride to the processor located in Homer, Alaska. Here it is quickly processed and flash frozen (to ensure freshness) then packed into coolers for the overnight trip to Georgia. This is the freshest salmon available without going to Alaska to catch it yourself. Red Sockeye salmon is packed with flavor and nutrition.
We are within a week or so of having this salmon at our very own market! The packages will be in a couple different ounce packages and range in prices based on $19.00 a pound.


We are placing an order for Green Pastures Fermented Cod Liver Oil if anyone is interested in ordering! Please email me at grow@ranchoalegrefarm.com with your contact info and what you want to order. Thanks!

As Always….

Please share with friends and family about us so that we can give more people the opportunity to buy and eat healthy! Local farmers need our support to keep providing us with all the fresh foods! If we don’t give them enough business, it’s hard for them to continue to deliver to us. Please let’s not let that happen! Tell your friends about us so we can keep the Growers supported as this is how they make their living.

Thank you to all of you who support Gwinnett Locally Grown!

If there is something you’d like to see in the Market, please let me know! I would love your input!

Remember…
The Market is extending their hours! The Market will now be open from 4:00 to 7:00pm!
Having said that, if you place an order with us, PLEASE remember to pick it up on Tuesday. As I am so grateful for your orders, I also have a family at home waiting on me too! We cannot hold orders, especially cold items due to limited refrigeration space, so please be courteous and come for your order.

Conway, AR:  Opening Bell: Last week for CORN!!!


Good afternoon,

Drink water! The heat is here for a while, and the goodies keep coming. Green Acres Atkins has cantaloupes, melons, and cured organic garlic. Barnhill Orchards still has zucchini! :-) And also tomatoes, okra, and onions! Check out all the local food being grown for you. It’s packed with flavor and nutrients for better health.

Note from Hardin Farms: This will probably be the last week for corn, cantaloupes and melons, so get them while you can. Corn and cantaloupe freeze very easily. We appreciate all the folks at Conway Locally Grown!

Come early on Friday for the best selection from the EXTRAS table.

The market is now *OPEN *for orders. Please check your email about 5 minutes after you place your order to make sure you get an order confirmation. Thank you for being a valuable part of CLG!

Have a great week!
Steve
