Augusta Locally Grown:  The Online Market is Open at Augusta Locally Grown


What a beautiful day!

The market is open and pickup will be Tuesday.
AJCC Pickup is 4-6pm
Buona Cafe Roastery Pickup is 5-7pm

Please do not arrive early for pickup. Our staff needs as much time as possible to process your order and ensure safety protocols are in being upheld.

Also, ALG has waved the membership fee for using the online market. We have instead added a surcharge fee to help with the running of the market. We found that the membership fee was a barrier for some and I goal is to make locally-sourced sustainable food accessible for all.

Thank you for supporting ALG,

Rebecca van Loenen

Champaign, OH:  Hey, Now!!


Tonight is a short and sweet weblog because your market manager is a tired Hippie girl…

But, you totally made this market an explosion of orders and love, this evening!! You touched my soul with all of the kind words, and you made me smile, and I not only felt the warmth of the sunshine, but also the warmth of what is now becoming a driveway party as we take all of your orders, to each of your cars, and have a safe distanced chat with each of you.

You have taken the market to new levels, and I love to the moon and back for that.

I will update more, tomorrow, but tonight I wanted to let you know that we are adding another new vendor back to our fold…Blue Jacket Dairy is back with their amazing cheeses!!!

We look forward to their products!!

Now, go, have sweet dreams, and get ready to order, again, as I open up the market…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Siloam Springs, AR:  Egg Inventory is Updated!


Egg inventory has been updated. There are 6 dozen eggs available, limit 2 dozen per family please.

Ground beef is also available with more selections coming soon.

Raised Rite Poultry had several 4-5 lb bags of chicken frames left and they are listed now for $6/bag. Makes great bone broth.

Vandevoir Farms will have updated chicken selections available online next week. This weeks went pretty quickly.

Remember you can purchase gift cards to our downtown merchants and support them during these difficult times. The cards can be used now or later. You could purchase them as gifts or for someone you know who is serving on the front lines right now. Many of our local restaurants are delivering locally and payment with a gift card makes it easy for all!

Thank you for supporting our local farmers, vendors, and businesses. See you Saturday!

Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 farm, Week of Apr 1 2020


Even a month ago I would not have anticipated the current conditions here in Canada and worldwide. Check my facebook page for what I select as high relevance news articles and science.

Old 99 is growing food. We have recently added two beeves in the freezers, stewing hens this week.
A new flock of 100 layers is settling in, already increasing our daily egg production. This time I bought white and brown layers, so your dozens will have a mix of both colours. Tell me if you can taste a difference! Dozens will be mixed size and weight, but averaging medium, large, extra large. Regular prices.

Nick LaMarsh is growing greenhouse and outdoor crops, he’s the market gardener for Old 99. He has onions, leeks, lettuces, claytonia, asian greens and much more in the ground. We all will be doing some growing, especially for the fall harvest and storage crops. Stay tuned for ways you might like to participate in that.

See the list at Locallygrown for what is available. Staples are kale, chard and collards among the greens. We are almost out of carrots, onions, potatoes and beets.

For your own gardens and flower beds I have mature composted ammended with rock flour (basalt), gypsum and volcanophos. The active microbial populations will boost the fertility of your gardens and increase the nutrient content of your produce. Available by the bag or bulk, delivery possible.

Remember: social distancing is going to make a big difference even when it looks like it isn’t, because the case load increases before it goes down. Many months ahead before we feel safe again. Wear your face masks, even homemade ones.
Here’s a quote from a Yale epidemiologist,
“In contrast to hand-washing and other personal measures, social distancing measures are not about individuals, they are about societies working in unison. These measures also take a long time to see the results. It is hard (even for me) to conceptualize how ‘one quick little get together’ can undermine the entire framework of a public health intervention, but it does. I promise you it does. I promise. I promise. I promise. You can’t cheat it. People are already itching to cheat on the social distancing precautions just a “little”- a playdate, a haircut, or picking up a needless item at the store, etc.”

Healthy eating,
Ian and Cami
