Green Fork Farmers Market:  Green Fork Farmers' Market--Weekly Notification

*Dear Green Fork Farmers Market Customers:
August 8th Update

Stephen V., your interim Market Manager here.
We had a very productive meeting yesterday about the future of the market. We being Jane Maginot (Beyond Organics), Larry Galligan (Riverside Specialty Farm) and yours truly (Figgieville). We were also fortunate to have Ann Wells (Ozark Pastured Beef) join us. More about Ann in a moment.
It became clear in our meeting that a mid-week Online Market is needed in Fayetteville and that we are committing ourselves to keeping this picture alive. The goal is to return to a more diverse market with more growers of quality food and the ability to have products for sale “on the table” at least part of the year.
Most growers have a lull in production this time of year with the transition to fall crops. So we decided to take a break until October.
However, Ann Wells would be happy to meet you in the Southwest quadrant of the Evelyn Hills parking lot on either this Saturday a.m. or next Wednesday afternoon!
If you need (Pastured) BEEF, LAMB, CHICKEN, TOMATOES, AND WATERMELONS! Olives, Oil and HONEY are in good supply. EGGS: the chickens are coming our of molting so your patience is needed on those.
To receive her current Newsletter / complete Product List PLEASE SEND AN E-MAIL TO OR BETTER YET TEXT ANN @
You are sure to see some familiar faces @ Evelyn Hills.
We appreciate your patronage and will be in touch with further developments.

Sincerely Yours,
Stephen Vallus

Miami County Locally Grown:  The Buehler's are going on Vacation - do you need eggs and pork?!

Check out our Facebook page to see Phil Buehler’s adorable new granddaughter – if he has to leave us, I guess flying out to Arizona to meet the new addition is a good reason ;-)

He’ll be back the following week, but if you’re looking for Phil and Matt’s awesome pork or J & S Buehler (including son Landon’s eggs!) get your order in by 8pm Sunday!!

And Congrats to Landon, who did so well at his first trip to the Shelby Co Fair, taking First Place in one class and Third Place in two others with his broiler chickens! Great Job, Landon!

The Cumming Harvest:  This week on The Cumming Harvest

This Week

Market opens at 10AM


There are over 400 items for sale on the market this week!

In the MEATS department, you will find:
Carrell Farms’ lamb, alpaca and water buffalo
Back in Time Farm’s pastured chicken products (listing on Wednesday only)
Southern Grass Meat and Indian Creek Angus grass-fed beef
White Oak Pastures pork sausages

Other items this week:

Ancient Awakenings kombucha, kefir and cultured vegetables

Eggs from pastured hens

Cultured Traditions’ Jun and cultured veggies

5 Lights Farm Honey

My Daily Bread jams and bakery items

Royal Rose Bakery quiches and pot pies

Southern Essentials essential oils and bath products

Buffalo Gal Grassfed Beauty products

The August WHITE OAK PASTURES order is due on August 13. White Oak Pastures raises pastured chicken, duck, pork, goat and more. For pricing or to place an order, come by the market or email Jennifer at

The Cumming Harvest is entirely a volunteer operation— we would not exist without the people you see each Saturday who help the farmers unload their goods and help you check out. If you love shopping at the market and have a few Saturday mornings a year to spare, please give me a shout! -Jennifer
