Siloam Springs, AR:  Market Re-opens Today!


Farmers Market of Siloam Springs

Market is open for business again! Orders will be accepted through Wednesday at 5 p.m. www.siloamsprings.locallygrown.net


Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weather! I bet the farmers are enjoying the opportunity to get outside and do some work and planning in their fields.

I’m getting anxious for the open air market to return. We had our first meeting with the farmers/vendors and it was fun to be with everyone again. I work with a wonderful group of like minded people.

I have permission to put the spinach and garlic back on the market this week. Tang is very hopeful with the beautiful sunshine and warmer temps that she’ll have some to deliver.

Seems like every time I open the market back up there are great new items available. I hope you are all enjoying the variety of products available.

Enjoy your week and if you’re out and about next Saturday, stop by the market and say hello even if you don’t have an order.

The Wednesday Market:  Place Your Orders


Good evening to everyone in The Wednesday Market community.

We trust that everyone survived the wicked winter weather of this past week. We thank our customers and producers for their flexibility in moving the market delivery to Friday. Sometimes we are all victims of circumstances beyond our control. And did you feel the earthquake last night? We did in Zebulon. What else does Mother Nature have in store? Spring cannot come soon enough!

The Market is open for orders. Please be sure to check the website for this week’s offerings. Remember to place your order by 10 p.m. Monday night. Orders are ready for pick up on Wednesday between 3:30 and 6 p.m. Here is the link: http://wednesdaymarket.locallygrown.net/market

Concord Street Sweets is taking the week off from orders. Don’t worry, they will be back soon!

As always, thank you so much for supporting your local farmers and producers and the effort to buy locally. We have the BEST customers! Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and we’ll see you at the Market.

Thanks,

Beverly

SLOW COOKER CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS
Makes 8 servings
Recipe by Janiece Mason
“This is an easy slow cooker recipe that cooks while you are at work! It is wonderful on a cold, snowy day. I have four children who are picky eaters, and they LOVE this! Enjoy!”

INGREDIENTS:
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons butter
2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
1 onion, finely diced
1 (10 ounce) package refrigerated biscuit dough, torn into pieces

DIRECTIONS:
Place the chicken, butter, soup, and onion in a slow cooker, and fill with enough water to cover.
Cover, and cook for 5 to 6 hours on High. About 30 minutes before serving, place the torn biscuit dough in the slow cooker. Cook until the dough is no longer raw in the center.

Market News

There is a rumor going around that spring is on its way, although we’ll believe it when we see it!

Beginning within the next week or two, look for a box for the Animal Alliance when you come to the market. You are invited to put your used inkjet or laser cartridges in it to help in their efforts to recycle and raise money for the pet spay/neuter program. You may drop off at any time, as the box will be on a shelf in the hallway on the left, just past the restroom door in the Community Center. (Door code 3939.) Thanks for helping!

And if you have some time this evening, try to drop by the Spanish House between 8:00 and 10:00 to support our own Charlotte Henderson and the Haiti Project.

If you have any questions, please call (931.592.3399, no voice mail) or e-mail (cumberlandfm@gmail.com) us.

Farm to Table Recipes

Whole Roasted Lemon-Herb Chicken on a Bed of Vegetables
From EatingWell: March/April 2010

When you season roast chicken under the skin, as in this recipe, the meat itself gets flavored and the skin becomes nicely browned and crisp. Here, the chicken is roasted on a bed of carrots, turnips and celeriac—but any mixture of root vegetables will work. You’ll need about 8 cups of chopped or cubed vegetables.

READER’S COMMENT:
“this is by far one of the best dishes I’ve cooked in a while I made it for sunday dinner and my husband agreed as well, I used carrots and potatoes, they came out so crispy and delish.”

Recipe
Makes: 6 servings, 3-4 ounces chicken & 2/3 cup vegetables each
Active Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 2 1/4 hours
NUTRITION PROFILE
Diabetes appropriate | Low calorie | Low saturated fat | Healthy weight | Heart healthy | High fiber | High potassium | Gluten free |

INGREDIENTS
1/4 cup fresh sage leaves, divided
1/4 cup fresh thyme sprigs, divided
2 lemons, divided
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon salt, divided
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
1 small onion, quartered
1 4- to 4 1/2-pound chicken
4 large carrots, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
3 medium turnips, peeled (see Tip) and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 celeriac roots (1 1/2-2 pounds total), peeled (see Tip) and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 400ºF.
Chop 8 sage leaves and place in a bowl with 2 teaspoons thyme leaves. Squeeze the juice from 1 lemon into the bowl. Add garlic, 1 tablespoon oil, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; mix well. Set aside.
Pierce the remaining lemon all over with a sharp fork. Cram the lemon, onion and the remaining sage and thyme into the chicken cavity.
Place the chicken breast-side up on a cutting board. Use your hands to gently loosen the skin covering the breast, thighs and the top end of the drumsticks. Smear the lemon-herb mixture under the skin, covering as much of the meat as possible.
Toss carrots, turnips and celeriac in a large bowl with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper until well coated.
Place the chicken breast-side up in a large roasting pan (but not on a rack). Scatter the vegetables around the chicken. Bake, stirring the vegetables occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a thigh without touching bone registers 165°F, 1 to 1 1/4 hours.
Transfer the chicken to a clean cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes before carving. Transfer the vegetables from the roasting pan to a serving dish with a slotted spoon, leaving behind as much of the fat as possible. Serve the chicken with the vegetables.
TIPS & NOTES
Tip: To peel turnips and celeriac (also called celery root), cut off one end of the root to create a flat surface so you can keep it steady on the cutting board. Follow the contour of the vegetable with your knife to remove the skin. Or, if you use a vegetable peeler, be sure to peel around the root at least three times to ensure that all the fibrous skin is removed.

Sam Jones, our hard working, dedicated Raw Dairy Farmer, of Cedar Rock Dairy went above and beyond ‘the call of duty’ this past week and delivered milk for Crossfit and Hamilton Mill folks on Monday before the storm. Sam also made a special trip on Friday to replenish the milk supply for the Lilburn Folks! Thank you Sam and Benny and thanks to all of the milk customers who adjusted to the changes.

I saw Mary for a few minutes yesterday when I dropped off her milk! She was exercising her right hand and the toes on her left foot. (Read: she is working very hard to heal!) Due to the weather this past week, her Orthopedist appointment was moved to Monday! She has been working very hard in Physical Therapy and at home and is hoping for a great report from the doctor! Please keep her in your prayers! Please drop her a note to say hello. email Mary! Leah is diligently caring for her Mom, the house and whatever else needs doing! If you are interested in helping out the family with a meal, please contact Leah at 404-245-2236. Thank you to those who have been helping with this important task!

Gluten Free Products
Bakery on Brooks


One good thing about the recent storm and being home-bound is it gave Marie time to ‘experiment’ in the kitchen! She is working on perfecting several new Gluten Free recipes! Be sure and see what goodies she has for tasting at the Markets this week!

As Marie perfects each recipe and her faithful testers (that would be her husband, Chuck, yours truly and Sarah Rockey from the Crossfit Market) give them final approval, you will have access to her fabulous offerings on the Market!

Marie has added Oatmeal Raisin Cookies this week to her offerings. Personally, I have never been an Oatmeal-Raisin-Cookie-Fan; however, her rendition has me totally won over! Not too sweet, chewy and delicious! The Chocolate Chip Cookies Sarah and I have patiently (ok, not-so-patiently) been anticipating are also available for ordering this week! Yep – they are definitely a winner! If Marie’s time permits, we will also have the opportunity to try some Cheese Rolls that are above and beyond wonderful! You have to taste these – my Mom used to make them and they are the best! (and of course Gluten Free!) Marie’s items will be listed on the Markets next week; but, for now – email your orders using the link below!

Farmer Updates

My Daily Bread has All jams and jellies on sale this week! My favorite is the Blackberry, but Dabrielle makes a variety, so check out her offerings and choose your favorites! Discounts will be applied at Market pickup! ($5.00/jar)

Wow! I cannot image being a Farmer – during a ‘good season’, much less the last year that we have had weather-wise! My gratitude and prayers are for all of our great folks who have dedicated themselves to providing us with fresh, local produce! Right now Burnell Farms, and The Veggie Patch are providing a good selection of wonderful fresh Winter veggie offerings. I was in contact with Vicky of Fry Farm, Ricky of Back River Farm and Doug of Doug’s Garden this past week and they are working hard growing and nurturing their plants. We look forward to welcoming them back as soon as they have items to bring to Market!

Just as the Produce Farmers are affected by the weather, the great folks who raise animals for our grass-fed meat products and fresh eggs and milk have also been challenged! The excessive rain this past summer and fall raised hay and chicken feed prices and have made quality hay tough to find! Be sure and check out the wonderful meat selections available from B&G Farms, Joyful Noise Acres Farm and Carrell Farms for delicious offerings of grass-fed, pastured Beef, Chicken and Pork. Both Golden Farms and Rocky Acres offer fresh eggs from pastured chickens fed organic, soy and GMO free feed. If you are interested in Lamb, please contact us. White Gates Farm near Butler, Georgia has Lamb offerings. Please contact Maryanne if you are interested. (404-432-4337)

…gratitude and this and that…

The weather has created challenges for all of us this past month and I am grateful for everyone’s patience, support and cooperation. We do our best to make the Market a viable resource to purchase your nutrient-dense, fresh, local food products.

Several Farmers have recently left the Market due to a decrease in the number of orders. Please share the Market with family and friends! If there is something that you think we can do to improve the Market, please contact us!

The Black Lab update for this week? Other than acting strange last night prior to the Earthquake, he enjoyed the snow while it lasted and found the mud after it melted much to his liking! (I didn’t like that part!)

It is time to say – thank you for taking the time to read this missive and…
