Your VI Locally Grown Growers
ALFN Local Food Club: The Market Is Open
I hope everyone survived the first week back into the school rhythm. Fresh starts and fresh foods, every Sunday marks a new week with new produce. The market is open!
There is a nice piece in “Farm & Food” highlighting the work of Grass Roots Farmer’s Cooperative. The article interviews Mitchell Latture one of the founding members of Grass Roots and owner of Freckle Face Farm. It is a great promotion of Grass Roots and the work they are doing. Many of you have tasted the fruits of their labor whether it is their drumsticks, sausages or bacons. ALFN greatly benefits from having Grass Roots on our market website. Check out the article and share it with a friend.
We are in the middle of apple and peach season for certain varieties that many of our growers produce. I ran across a recipe for peach gazpacho that sounds fun. Consider trying a cold peach soup to help finish off the end of summer! Speaking of recipes, I would love for anyone to share lunch box ideas using market ingredients. Send ’em my way, and I will share them in our mid-week reminder.
Make sure you get a volunteer spot for a Saturday market. You can sign up for dates here.
Program & Market Manager
Conway, AR: Opening Bell: Coffee, Mushrooms, Apples, Squash, Okra!
NEW PROGRAM! Keep the eggshells coming! You dropped off over 3 dozen EGGSHELLS on Friday! Those have been dried in the sun, crushed, and given back to the hens so they can make more eggs with strong shells. Please continue to save the shells and drop them in the bucket on Friday. Keeping them in a Ziploc bag or tupperware container in the fridge works just fine. It is greatly appreciated!
BIG NEWS! We anticipate having those wonderful Shiitake Mushrooms from Sweden Creek Farms on the Extras table this Friday. Come early to be sure to get some!
COFFEE! Stock up on your favorite fresh-roasted coffee from RoZark Hills Coffee Roasterie.
Lots of delicious APPLES and PEACHES are listed, in small and bulk quantities. Great for school lunches!
Check out the new pork items from Bar C Family Farm. We love the Pork Cutlets. They come 2 in a pack and are great for grilling or schnitzel. We also brown off the ground pork, then add fresh basil, onions and garlic for a pizza topping. Wonderful!
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!

Siloam Springs, AR: Online Market is Open!
Pre-order your favorite items and pick them up Saturday morning, at the outdoor market between 9 a.m. and noon. Eggs are one item that sells out quickly – by pre-ordering you can reserve your eggs and pick them up before the market is over.
Hoping this week is as beautiful as the week we just completed.

Manchester Locally Grown: Time to Order Local Farm Products!
Dodgeville, WI: Market Week Aug 23
The rain this past week provided much needed moisture. However, I think it may have been too late for some of the vine crops like cucumbers. We hope that the plants come back and set more blossoms and fruit in the next couple of weeks. Raspberries will be the special treat of this fall and are starting to turn red.
