Republican Valley Produce: RVP Update, Last delivery in November
I hope everyone has had a fantastic Thanksgiving. It was very nice to be able to spend it with our families. If you aren’t too stuffed and you still want to think about food, the market will be open until Sunday at 5 pm.
I posted a recipe, Hearty Butternut Soup. It was a spin off of one of our favorite potato soup recipes. It was mighty tasty!
Last thing, the Manhattan Farmers Market is having a Winter Market on December 3rd from 8-11 at Pottorf Hall. I am planning on bringing quite a bit of produce to this market. I just wanted everyone to know that it won’t affect the availability of produce on RVP. We have plenty planted and growing.

Gwinnett Locally Grown: Gwinett.LocallyGrown.net is Open for Orders
Hoping everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
In the next few weeks we are going to be going through a few transitions. The first one will be milk supplier. Currently we have been dependent on a third party to deliver Johnston’s milk, and although we are very thankful, it has caused some inconsistencies. I have been in talks with Mountain Fresh Creamery in Clermont to see if they can deliver directly to us, since Johnston is not able to, and we are hoping they will have enough orders on a weekly basis to keep us on their route. I have spoken with Russell Johnston of this situation and he too feels this is best. It was hard to make this switch, since I know how hard dairy is, and appreciate what Johnston has to offer. If you have any questions about Mountain Fresh here is their website information: http://mountainfreshcreamery.com. They offer several dairy items including ice cream and ground beef. Remember this is an online farmers market, and we want to support our farmers the best way we can. Feel free to contact them directly, ask them any questions, and if you want all of the different products they offer, be sure to let them know.
The trim work in the country store is now finished and the shelving are currently being worked on. I’ve reached out to the Gwinnett Bee Keeper Club to provide more honey supplies. There are a few other vendors I’m speaking with to stock their items. If you have something you would like to see on a consistent basis, please be sure to let me know. I’m currently working w/ some of the perishable items on the market like veggies and bread to see how we can expand the market times and work with extended store hours.
One small note, it’s basketball season for my two boys, and we don’t get schedules until last minute. If I have to run off, Sandra will be here in my place.
