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!

News

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.

Sincerely,

Kyle Holton
Program & Market Manager

Conway, AR:  Opening Bell: Coffee, Mushrooms, Apples, Squash, Okra!


Good afternoon,

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!
Steve

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.

NEWS AND NOTES

From Dogwood Valley Greenhouse:


With somewhat lower temperatures and lots of rain, now is a great time to get a jump on your spring gardening with perennial and herb plants and ferns. Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has a great Fall Special for you. Buy 3 perennial or herb plants or ferns (mix-and-match), and get one of equal or lesser value at no charge. The free plant is your own choice from my market list, subject to available stock. Sorry, lavender and rosemary plants are not included in this offer. Most of the perennials are out of bloom, but fall planting will give them a chance to develop good strong root systems to allow for great spring bloom. Please add a message on your order including your first, second, and third choices for a free plant. We also have a few gorgeous large hanging baskets which, although not included in the special offer, will really add color to your porch or patio.



We still have lots and lots of summer vegetables on the market. This week we have zucchini, tomatoes, summer squash, red potatoes, peppers, onions, okra, lettuce, cabbage, and cucumbers. Local milk and eggs; pork and chicken cuts; and more are available here! Three types of dried herbs and eight of fresh are also available to flavor those dishes! We have lots of homemade herbal products too.








(L to R) Just a sampling of the perennial, fern, and herb plants included in the Fall Special from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: Lambs’ Ears, Dwarf Coreopsis, Autumn Fern, Lemon Balm, and Silver-Edged Thyme.

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.
