Yalaha, FL:  Now Taking Cards


Market is open.
In light of the new social distancing, some one asking if I could take credit cards, and people interested in delivery;
I have now set up the Market to use Stripe as a payment gateway for online payments. It is now possible for you to pay with a card on your account (we are not storing credit card info, that is all handled on by stripe.)
You will now have the option to enter your card to pay at the time of pickup (that way if I can’t fill the whole order, you will only get charged for what you actually get) or you can prepay a balance in your account to use to buy produce into the future. Either way, your choice and you will be able to change cards on the account whenever you need to.

This has just been set up so if you have any issues, let me know. Hopefully it will work flawlessly from the beginning but I know that in real life there are sometimes glitches to work out.

Thanks,

Siloam Springs, AR:  Ground Beef Available


Opossum Hollow has added some ground beef to our online inventory. More beef inventory to be added next week! ????

Stones River Market:  Market is OPEN -- See you Wednesdayon the "CURB"


Welcome to this weeks Stones River Locally Grown Online Farmers Market. Reminder…Market is open until 10pm tonight.

Sending out another Weblog as a reminder for tonight but also a couple of our Growers wanted to send you a message.

Farrar Farm LLC.: Unfortunately is out of stock of 1 pound ground beef but has a good assortment of roasts and a few steaks.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: Brighten up your day with some our perennials. All the very early spring perennials are still available, and in addition a bunch of new ones have joined them recently. Unfortunately I cannot make them all featured, which is why I list them here. The very early azaleas are blooming, including my personal favorite, the white streaked with a little pink, and my other personal favorite, the pink with throat markings, both fall rebloomers. Another shrub in bloom right now is flowering almond, which really deserves a spot in your garden. The dwarf coreopsis is just beginning its long bloom cycle, and several mints are growing well. Three woodland phlox are blooming, including both purple and pink stolonifera as well as blue divaricata. These three will really light up your spring shady areas……Very new to the market this week, and very special, are the “Stacked Planters”. I have put some together with hardy herbs and some with hardy succulents, and am impatiently waiting till warmer weather to plant some with tender succulents. These planters have three layers which can be disassembled and rearranged as much as you like. I will be glad to bring one in to place on the market table for you to see if you’d like. Just drop me an email and let me know.Brighten up you day..week..and months ahead with perennials and few annuals.

Here is Sundays Weblog in case you’ve missed it.

Siloam Springs, AR:  PLEASE READ - Online Market is Open Updates


Good morning everyone!

Vandevoir Farms has restocked chicken to include wings, drumsticks, thighs, breasts, and tenders. Opossum Hollow will be restocking pork and adding beef soon and their fresh greens, radishes, turnips, and herbs are available.

The Bread Basket, Babette’s Bakery, Mary Alifaire, Leah Lou’s Cookies, and Susi’s Kitchen offer a great selection of baked goods and artisan breads. We have honey and gourmet mustards as well.

Payne Family Farm is working to increase their flock. They have updated inventory and ask that you limit purchases to 2 dozen eggs per family. If you are shopping and eggs are sold out please check back on Thursday to see if they were able to add additional inventory.

Our goal is to continue to provide our community access to fresh, locally grown and made products. Our farmers and vendors are working hard to keep their products stocked and may need to limit quantities in an effort to serve our entire community well. Thank you for understanding and thank you for being such faithful supporters.

Our curbside pick up has been so easy and I appreciate everyone for working with me through these changes. We have an amazing community!

Have a beautiful week and see you Saturday!

Winnsboro, TX:  Weblog Entry


Good morning,

The online market is open. Our Saturday markets will begin again this weekend, 8-noon. We generally close the online sales at that time, but in these circumstances we understand that not everyone may feel comfortable with shopping on Market Street. So, we will continue to operate the online shop until we don’t see it as a need.

Have a peaceful week, my friends.

Champaign, OH:  Monday, Monday


Monday, Monday, so good to me
Monday mornin’, it was all I hoped it would be…
(Monday, Monday-The Mamas & The Papas)

Good morning on this windy Monday morning!

Another week, another market, and another record crashed with such amazing sales entering into an early Monday with still two days of ordering left!

We just wanted to take the time to thank you, tell you that we think you are amazing, and personally, all of your emails of love, thank you statements, and your excitement over this little local market of love, means the world!

Go, ahead…take your day of social distancing, and settle in with our market, peruse what we have to offer, and throw us your orders! We are excited to see you, Thursday evening, at the farm!

Also…I went ahead and changed all location information on the market site to avoid confusion as to where we are located!

I’ll check in, later…

Cosmic Pam

Market News

Hi there! We’re taking things week by week, day by day, but right now it looks like we can try this another week. Getting farm fresh food in your hands is more important than ever and we’ll be doing everything we can to safely get it to you.

Last week we pretty much were at capacity, though. Y’all are ordering far more than usual from the farmers (that’s a good thing!) but we really had no more room back there where we were organizing. I know there are even more of you this week, though, so we’re going to keep trying to wring every bit of efficiency we can out of time and space. o this end, I’ve made one very big change to how you order this week:

I’d like you to commit to an hour block you’ll be arriving on Thursday. When you go to place your order, on the last screen, there’s a new drop-down labelled “Pickup Location”. he only thing different between the options are the times: 5-6pm, 6-7pm, and 7-8pm. If you don’t choose one, your order will not go through (it’ll tell you why and how to fix it). If you place multiple orders, please choose the same time block for each. You can click on “Change Your Account Information” on the Your Account page to set a default for your account so you don’ have to choose a time slot each time.

Knowing roughly when you arrive will help us prepare things moor efficiently. I’m hoping you naturally spread yourselves out some and don’t all choose the 5pm slot. When you arrive has no bearing on what you receive, so there’s no reason to try to get there first.

Live plans will continue to be self-service, and will likely be even less organized than last week. Organizing the food will be our first priority, and if we have hands after that to organize the plants by customer, we will. All the pots are labelled, just like your food items, bu it’ll be up to you to get the right ones. We can tell you, but last week some of you ordered 20 plants and didn’t remember what you ordered, and that was pretty hard for everyone. Bringing a list or your order confirmation email will help out a lot there.

We’re still not accepting in-person payments unless absolutely necessary. We’ll have a drop box for checks or labelled envelopes of cash, but we greatly prefer Venmo payments to @athenslocallygrown or online payments through a card tied to your account. That last option has a 3% fee, and Venmo is free.

We do have a lot of options on the able right now, including moving to another pickup location altogether that can better handle the traffic. If that happens, I’ll send out another email to everyone.

Finally, keep in mind that while the parking lot there is decently sized, it’s still no shopping center and there are a lot of you coming and going. Take it slow, give yourselves lots of room to get around, and be patient with everyone. This is new territory for all of us, and we’re having to adjust on the fly. Last week saw several times the usual amount of sales for our growers, which would be logistically challenging for us in normal circumstances. Please be patient with us on Thursday if things don’t go the most smoothly, and if you see something we could be doing better, please tell us. We don’t know how long we’ll be able to do this, but we’ll keep it going as long as we possibly, and safely, can.

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible!
