Yalaha, FL:  Who Wants more Payment Options?


Please let me know if anyone would like me to add online payment options to the online market? There will be a small convenience fee for online payment but it would allow for prepaying orders and allow for ding dong drop deliveries.
The additional fee would be just 3% of the order. We will still be able to do the cash or checks the way we always have for in person pick ups so if you like the way it is now, don’t worry, that won’t change.

Please let me know.
Market is OPEN and we are working on expanding availability to more people.
Thanks,
Aleece

New Grower! Take a look at the exciting mushrooms offered by Wye Mountain Mushroom Farm. Jess Wilkins has been growing up to 8 varieties of mushrooms for the last few years. He’s been featured in local magazines and stays busy supplying local restaurants. Take a look at the mushrooms he has available this week and do some research online on how to prepare them for the best uses. Very impressive. Welcome to CLG, Jess!

White River Creamery has listed more delicious cheeses.

On the extra table this Friday we will have about 50 plants that were started from seed by some local grade school students. We will have basil, tomatoes, peppers, and others for only one dollar each. Proceeds go to the school’s gardening program. #Tomorrow’sFarmers!

Many restaurants and businesses are closed, but still operating the drive thru. Take a look at the great items being baked fresh for you at Julie’s Sweet Shoppe. Let’s support our hometown bakery during this crisis. #GlazedDonuts!

Mark your calendar: the 3rd annual plant sale at Bell Urban Farm on Tyler street. It will be held on Saturday, April 18, from 9 AM until 3 PM. Hundreds of varieties of flowers, herbs, and vegetable plants will be available. Kim has decided to have the plant sale online to prevent large crowds. Stay tuned for details.

We are normally ready for customers to start arriving around 3 PM if you happen to be out and in the area. Just text me to see if we’re ready.

Be sure to SEARCH for your favorite items using the search field. Four instance, type in the word “sale” and see what pops up. We have almost 500 items available now!

Most items are listed by 6pm Sunday, but check back again before the market closes Tuesday night to see if any other items are ready to be harvested for you! Eat fresh! Eat local! Eat for better health!

And save your eggshells throughout the week for the laying hens! :-)

In accordance with the current guidelines, we will not have more than 10 people in the lobby at any time. We have four volunteers who can bring your order to your car if you prefer. Just call or text when you are parked and your order will be brought to you.

Come early on Friday for the best selection from the Extras table. See you Friday!

We have spent years perfecting our recipes and continue to do so. We love what we do, and we enjoy making food that tastes good and is good for you.

Top a sunny side up turkey egg with our wonderful spring microgreens mix (mustard, broccoli, kale, kohlrabi and beets). We also have multicolored chicken and duck eggs, dried rosemary and fresh kale available.

Quarter Spring Farm: wants to say thank you to all of our customers for their support. We have sold out of chicken cuts for the time being, but we still have delicious whole birds available.

Dothan, Alabama:  MArch 28, 2020 M@D Newsletter

Only one photo today. Little did we know when we gave this cup to Wendy . . . hope it makes you smile too.


Unprecedented Times

“The Governors coming on in 15 minutes!”

That was the word we got from JD during Market Pickup yesterday. After Gov. Ivey’s last appearance announcing the shut down of schools for the remainder of the year we had a bit of anticipation about what to expect.

As we all know now her announcement put a lot more people out of work. That hurts. And at the same time we can’t forget it’s the cost of saving this very precious thing we call life. We can come back from economic disaster but there’s no coming back from death.

It made me think of another group of people, another time in another place who had their lives turned upside down overnight.

It was a group of school children who were told to pack their things and leave together. They were separated from the home and friends they knew and marched for miles to a place where they had to sleep on the floor with very little food. After a time there they were forced to march many more miles to a fortress of sorts where they were kept at gunpoint for several years.

Many of you are familiar with this story. It is the experience of my sweet mother in law who grew into a lovely young woman after WWII was over, married, raised a beautiful family and has spent her entire life serving others. What she lived through was traumatic and hard, but her final attitude toward it helped shape her into someone who has given back to humanity after experiencing some of humanity’s worst. Mom Horton lived through extraordinary times that went down in history just as the event we’re experiencing will go down in history.

A wise woman once told me, “You only have today.”

She was right. TODAY we each have a choice. We can choose love. We can choose faith. We can choose to do the right thing. And we can choose to make the most of this precious thing we still enjoy called LIFE.

MARKET CHITCHAT

SUCCESS!!!


I have to hand it to our customers – GENIUS! Yesterday several of you had your ziploc payment baggies in the truck so there was no need to approach the driver at curbside pickup. Just goes to show there’s always room for improvement and you guys knew just what to do!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I may get in trouble for this, but one person who needs to be recognized is our customer Stephanie Dellafiora. Early on she stepped up to keep all of us SAFE by donating a respectable amount of Melaluca disinfectants, hand sanitizer, etc. Our new early Friday protocol starts with spraying everything in the Market Shed down. Stephanie is a Melaluca consultant and if anyone would like to know more about these great GREEN products we’ll be glad to put you in contact with her. For what it’s worth these are the products your Market Manager uses at home.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We get to tweak pickup protocols every week as we learn what works in our current situation.

1. Order Payment:
a. Voluntarily prepay by 6 pm Thursday if possible. This eliminates passing paper currency back and forth or handling of debit/credit cards on site. paypal.me/MarketAtDothan. Your invoice will be marked PAID and pickup is fast and easy.
b. paypal.me/MarketAtDothan curbside. Not quite as efficient as we have to verify receipt but it does work.
c. Debit/Credit – yes, we still take cards. We just have to get within 6 feet for you to put your card in the chip reader.
d. Cash and Checks – please put them in a plastic baggie or bank bag. If you want to put them in your trunk/tailgate that would eliminate the need to come near the drivers window.

2. Curb Service. It’s OK to pull up next to the building. In fact we recommend it as tractor trailers sometimes need to share that space. Have your trunk/ hatchback open and we’ll load you up!

GROWER NOTES

We have the best Growers in the Wiregrass! Please learn more about them on our Grower Page.


MAYIM FARM: Just a quick note…we have increased our seedling/transplants and are continuing to plant these in the ground daily.
Hopefully we will have some of your old favorites available again and new products ready for market in a couple weeks.
We are also planting more of our medicinal type plants, focusing on those that might be helpful in these times.
One of our core values for Carole and I is…plants over pills. This also includes our food as medicine.
We are striving to make these personal choice options to all…
Stay healthy…Greg and Carole

DANNY’S GREENS: Our green onions are just now getting big enough to pick so they are listed along with the salad greens and a bit of kale and collards.

HORTONS FARM: Spring has Sprung and with it all the less pleasant aspects that go along with it in the deep south. We have a few products that should help if any of these ail you:
Fire Ants – there are multiple home remedies that will relieve the pain, but Fire Ant First Aid is still the only product out there that can prevent pustules when used right away. It’s especially effective on children’s tender skin.
Plantain antiseptic salve. Keep this in your glovebox or purse. It will cover, protect, soothe and kill germs till you can get that injury looked at.
Allergies – Stinging nettle provides time proven respiratory support. We offer both tinctures and capsules. Makes a great vitamin supplement even if you don’t have allergies.
Cuts, Scrapes, Burns. Local Honey may be sticky but it’s a proven to kill germs, create its own natural hydrogen peroxide and promote faster healing through enzyme activity.

AVALON FARM:

IMG-20200328-122529

Oh, kale no, the veggies aren’t ready yet. ; )  

Sorry to disappoint. Things are growing but it will be a while yet. I did see the first couple asparagus stalks. So that’s exciting. Should be able to list those in a couple weeks.

Stocking up on chicken feed, especially for the meat birds. If things go sideways I want to have enough feed on hand to grow these 50 out to eating size.
