ALFN Local Food Club: Markey Updates
A Happy Week’s Start ter ya’ll!
First and foremost, I wish you a merry Cornbread Festival. That’s right, it’s this Saturday. Speaking of which, the Festival is in need of more amateur cornbread competitors! If you are, or know someone who is, a mean cornbreader, consider signing up! Details below…
The market has got great stuff. Radishes galore. Check out this guide on Martha Stuart’s site for great radish recipes! We’ve also got turnips and some cool recipes for them, including Turnip Fries as well as Turnip and Sweet Potato Gratin. Delicious!
For fear of tooting my own horn, I must tell you that the Real Food in Little Rock blog posted a contribution by yours truly (that’s me) concerning our Network! Follow this link down the rabbit hole. Please read and share with folks who don’t know about us! Feel free to send along compliments and constructive criticism.
OK, last but not least, notes for amateur cornbread warfare: contact Liz Sanders at 501-617-2511. It’s $25 to enter, and you can win big prizes! Find the form here. Please consider entering; they are hungry for more amateur competitors!
CAFE: Tailgate Prize Awarded!!
Monday Update 10/29/12
TAILGATE PRIZE AWARDED!!
As promised, the Best Loka-color Tailgate plate was awarded at the City of Clemson Farmers Market last Friday. The prize went to Connor Lemacher who constructed the spelling of C-L-E-M-S-O-N (see photo on Facebook page) with vegetables grown at the Student Organic Farm. For his creative efforts we are offering young Connor either10 stuffed bags of fresh, local spinach; or a Sylvan Falls Mill chocolate cake.
Remember that as outdoor farmers markets are closing for the year CAFÉ remains open year round and even as the temps will be dropping this week, our Fall crops are only beginning to arrive, and we anticipate another long extended season of Fall greens as more and more of our Growers incorporate season-extending practices and technologies.
Continue shopping until noon today. You may even still purchase miniature pumpkins from Parisi Farms.
Eat (and carve) well to stay well! Lance
South Cumberland Food Hub: Time to order Local Food!
Good Morning everyone!
It’s time to order your local food from the South Cumberland Food Hub.
This week we want to welcome a new grower- The Dutchmaid Bakery. They are located in Tracy City and if any of you have ever eaten there, you know how yummy the baked goods are! They have breads available, in 2 sizes, and some cinnamon rolls. So check it out.
Due to the farmers having limited time to harvest with our ordering system, I would like everyone to do their best to order by noon on Mondays. If you have problems getting your order in on time, just let me know and we’ll see what we can work out.
Thank you and have a great week!
Upstate Locally Grown Market: Market Reminder
Your market is open for ordering until noon today and drop-off will be Tuesday at Swamp
Rabbit Cafe, or Wed at Whole Foods info desk.
Thanks for your support!
Clemson SC: Clemson orders Due in this Morning
Hello Clemson Friends!
These past three weeks have been quite rough for Donna, having had gall stones blocking the bile duct,causing great havoc in my body and environment. I have been in for testing, and though these stones successfully passed, more are waiting to announce their presence in a not so nice way. So, maybe surgery is called for. I see the surgeon soon.
In the mean time, our market manager, Heidi has carried on and covered in places, as well as Anna from Greenville USLG, who has packed all our orders and made sure everything was there for me.
I am so grateful for these wonderful friends who jump in there and do what is needed.
If you wish to order this week, please get your orders in soon. We will be closing ordering the market soon this morning, and we do need a few more orders to make the trip expenses. So, I hope that you needed this reminder, and will log on and order your supply of beef, chicken, eggs, dairy, and veggies.
Thanks for sticking with us through thick and thin.
Love to all

Tullahoma Locally Grown: Local Food!
We’ve had such a beautiful fall so far this year. The mild weather has been good for our farmers. We have alot of great items on the market this week. Here’s a note from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse:
Dogwood Valley Greenhouse is running two specials this week. Buy 2, Get 1 free on all trade gallon pots of Perennials, Ferns, & Herb Plants from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse. Most are out of bloom now, but are strong, healthy plants, which will develop good root systems before cold weather. They are eager to burst into bloom in your garden next spring. Order your 2 plants as usual on the market, and in the comments section indicate your first & second choices of an additional free plant. Please be specific if there are 2 or more varieties listed (astilbe, carnation, etc.). Also, purple Wandering Jew hanging baskets are HALF-PRICE while supplies last.
