Remember to place your Market2Go order for this week before midnight tonight!
Miami County Locally Grown: We have HONEY!!
Doc Allen of Pumpkin Patch has extracted the first honey of the season!
We’ve waited long enough! The raw Early Honey is so delicate in flavor and very light colored – from Acacia or Locust tree nectar. Always unfiltered, unheated, and packaged in glass jars – right here in Troy!
And be sure to check out some of the products on the Market made with Pumpkin Patch honey… Lemon Honey Buttons, Einkorn and Honey Loaf, Gluten-Free Sandwich Bread, and Fruit Bars! Collaboration is what we love (to eat!) :-)
Manchester Locally Grown: Reminder: Ordering Closes at 10 pm
Manchester Locally Grown market
We always have a few new farmers, waiting their turn to join our market and offer their wonderful products to all our customers. In order to add more farmers, we feel it would be best to grow our customer base a bit. We want to be able to offer you and your friends some new local farm products.
The farmers and market managers would really appreciate your efforts to help spread the word about our fantastic market. What a great local resource for fresh, local farm products. Please pick up a few business cards to hand out to your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Advertising is very expensive, and we want to use our slim market funds in a responsible manner.
This is just a friendly reminder to place your order online by 10 pm this evening.
It seems as though every week, someone says, “I meant to order last week, but forgot till about 9:45.” Well, that’s fine, for two reasons:
1. Every single order placed before I close the market will be filled, unless the farmers run out of some items; and
2. I never close the market at 10:00 sharp. It just doesn’t happen (and to those who know me, that comes as no surprise.) It may be closer to midnight before it gets turned off. However, it’s better not to put off ordering, because some items may be sold out.
Lastly, remember to hit that last “submit” button. I really dislike disappointing a customer who comes to market, only to find no order in their name because they didn’t hit the last button. When your order is placed, you will receive an email confirmation. If for any reason you fail to receive this confirmation, please contact Linda as soon as you realize it’s missing.
Also please go to our Facebook page & like, comment, and share this week’s post. Facebook isn’t allowing me to post on multiple sites, or post multiple photos. So please help us spread the word. Surveys indicate that word of mouth is the most effective form of advertisement. Please help us advertise our fantastic growing market!
See you on Thursday!

New Field Farm's Online Market: LETTUCE BEGIN!
We have a few items to offer now to begin the season and get the first taste of fresh greens.
There’s basil, arugula, lettuces, salad mix, swiss chard, and two kinds of parsley.
For those items I can’t actually count (which is most of the crops) I have to estimate how much is available. I try to underestimate to be safe so if something is sold out you can ask for it in the comment section and we might be able to provide.
Orders can be placed after you receive this weekly email on Tuesdays. Orders are due by 8 AM Thursday morning, after which time you’ll be unable to order for that week.
PICK-UP is Fridays from 4:30 to 7:30 at the farm and 5 to 8 at Union Mill.
We encourage those picking up at the farm to begin using their own cloth bags/boxes/crates/laundry baskets or such to cut down on plastic bags. This means dropping off two (2) bags or whatnot, with your name written on them some Friday. We’ll use one to fill your next order and then you bring back the empty the following week and pick up your new order in the second bag. And so on through the season. If your order won’t all fit in your bag we’ll use our regular plastic ones as well.
This won’t work at Union Mill because I don’t want to clutter up their lobby with our stuff during the week. They’ve been very accommodating about using their space for pick up for over 10 years.
It’s been a lovely June, though very dry, so we’re irrigating a lot right now, as well as planting and hoeing and doing all the other many tasks needed to get the season up and going.
Thank you for your support and we’ll hope for a good season.
Champaign, OH: Tuesday Mania!
Your market managers have been crazy busy, this past weekend, with all things Hippie and the Farmer, getting ready to open for the season, busy with the strawberry UPick, busy with our individual businesses, and busy getting the gardens, greenhouse, and construction all accomplished, for our opening day, June 23, the first Saturday On The Farm, of the season!!
Soooo…here it is, Tuesday, and this is my reminder that the market will close, for the week, tomorrow morning…get your orders in!
Yes…we know that there is no lettuce…but our lettuce is coming on, strong, and will be added to the market, in the coming weeks! Along with our organic spinach, and chard!!
Yes…the asparagus is gone…Beth’s season has ended…
Yes…if you want strawberries, don’t wait…the season is short, but sweet!
Yes…not a lot of produce, yet…but, since we run the market, locally, according to the seasons, you get the best, of what comes into play, with each growth season. And now we are in the upswing of the growing season, and our producers will be adding produce, as it comes on…
Thank you for being amazing market customers!!
Statesboro Market2Go: Blackberries!
Blackberries – just added by Jacobs Produce!
