Champaign, OH:  The Only Market You Will Ever Need!

The market is now open for the week!!

Thank you for always being such dedicated little local market of love customers!!

A huge thanks to Charlene for running the market, alone, tonight, so that Mark and I could work the Empty Bowls event!!

I was honored to be the bread donator for this event, and the love for my products were amazing!! I was honored to be asked to work with this amazing cause! Together, Mark and I took our new business expansion, Hippie and the Farmer, to the event as one of the evening’s soup sponsors!!

Thanks, so much, to all of you who came out, tonight!! It was crazy busy, and as many of you saw, at the last part of the evening, the breads were down to crumbs, and the many gallons of our soup was down to just a bit in the last container.

Your love and dedication to local is why we do what we do…all for you, all for this market, all for keeping the local vibe strong!

Go, order, be happy…
Peace, Love, Good Vibes…

Market News

New Items:
Essential Oil – Orange (Sweet) Organic 1 oz. – Warm, fresh citrus scent, radiant, fruity and tangy. This oil smells just like fresh orange peel, but has a much stronger aroma in this form. Provides fresh energy, clearing and inspiring the mind. As with other citrus essential oils just a few drops in water when washing dishes or cleaning will brighten up your work. Blends well with many different oils such as lavender, Neroli, Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood, Frankincense, or Tea Tree.

Soap – Peppermint with Activated Charcoal (Large 5 oz. Bar) A great uplifting soap to get your day started! This soap will wake you up! Wonderful cool feeling with the addition of ground Activated charcoal, which has great exfoliating properties and used to absorb impurities and toxic substances.

Back In Time Farm is sold out of whole chickens but will have some back on the market in April.

Cheese Group Buy If you were not able to pick up your cheese order last Tuesday it is in Frige #3

Fry Farm Update- (Repeat) Fry Farm had to put all their produce listings on hold due to freeze damage. I’ll let you all know when they are back on the market.

Salmon, Water Buffalo and Pastured Meats fully stocked!


It’s been a busy week for our farmers and fisherman!

Doug has Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon & Halibut back online! We are fully stocked with Halibut steaks, Salmon Filets, portions, burger, and smoked salmon!

Carrell Farms has ground water buffalo and sausages back on the market!

B&G has grass fed beef, pastured pork and chicken all stocked up too! Please note that the LABEL on B&G’s meat will have the processor label on it instead of the farm’s. Lynda finally has her new label and will be on the next batch of meat. Some of her meat listed this week will have the packer label on her product. This is completely legal since they package the meats for her. She wants to make sure you all know that it is HER meat though not the packing company.

Volunteers Needed

WE NEED 1 Volunteer for the 2pm shift this upcoming Tuesday!!

Please consider volunteering during market pick up. I can’t run the co-op without your help!

No packing is involved just need someone to be there to assist other members. You are welcome to bring your kids as long as they are supervised.

Many of you have told me that you can’t volunteer due to your work/family schedule and I completely understand. You’ve also asked what else can I do help out the co-op? Here’s one way that will really help us out – if you are on Facebook or other social media please consider posting a pic of your co-op goodies! I have a very limited marketing budget and really depend on word of mouth advertising. Please feel free to spread the word about our wonderful market!

Thank you in advance for your support!

The Cumming Harvest:  This Week at The Cumming Harvest

Market News

The Cumming Harvest is open for orders!

Ancient Awakenings is selling this week.

Still no word on when the move may take place but we’ll be ready and let you know too!

CANE CREEK FARM’s ORGANIC GROWING COURSES are starting this weekend.

Organic Growing Courses
The three organic growing courses offered by Cane Creek Farm build on each other and serve to discover and deepen an understanding of using sustainable, chemical-free growing practices. Students include those wanting to begin a garden at home or enhance their current garden and the aspiring or experienced farmer wanting to learn more about organic growing practices. Although these courses are now in their 10th year, this is the first year the classroom component is offered online with an optional on-farm field experience. Lynn Pugh teaches the courses from the Georgia Organic’s organic curriculum, which she helped to develop. Classes are limited to 25 participants, and advance registration is required at

“We want to reach those who may not live nearby by offering much of the course content online, and those who are able will find the field experience to be fun hands-on learning and a good way to connect with classmates,” says Pugh. “About a third of our past participants now own and operate their own farms, and almost all students are successful backyard gardeners.”
