Martin's Farmstand:  Veggies for Thanksgiving and storage

The stand is still full of lots of good veggies for your Thanksgiving meal. Look at the list. We have several bins of winter squash that have marked or scuffed skins (that will not be put into long term storage) for sale at bargain prices. ( $.25/ lb any quantity).

From now till the day before Thanksgiving we will be open with the summer schedule 6 days a week.
In the month of December we will be open on Thursday, Friday and Saturdays from 12:30 pm till 5 pm. We will be completely closed from Christmas till New year. After the new year till spring the plan is to be open every Friday (12:30pm – 5pm) weather permitting. (If the weather is very stormy or cold call ahead before coming during those midwinter days).
In early May when the asparagus comes up summer hours will resume ( Mon-Sat 10 am -6 pm.
We normally sell the majority of our winter storage crops wholesale to the restaurant, food service, and colleges. This year there is very little potential to sell to them. This creates the opportunity for us to have the stand open through the winter. We will have the various storage crops as supplies last. We also plan to keep the bulk food room stocked. Daniel

Locally Grown STT:  Weblog Entry

It’s the week of Thanksgiving! Try your hand this week at some local recipes, local ingredients, local gifts, and more! Island Thanksgivings are a really treat!

Welcome to the market: Virgin Islands Creations, carrying locally made soaps with ingredients they grow! I’ve tried them and they are very moisturizing yet cleansing for the skin! A nice break from harsh detergents used in commercial soaps. Especially after all this hand sanitizer we’ve all been using.

New one the market: locally crafted Beeswax Wrap clothes, an eco-friendly substitute for foil paper and seran wrap over your holiday dishes on the kitchen counter. This is really cool that a local beekeeper is making their own beeswax cloth wraps available to the VI community!

SORREL!!! This is your chance to bring a sorrel drink or dish to Thanksgiving as a true island touch! If you haven’t used it before, you can treat it like cranberry. Very tart and sour raw, but amazing when cooked in sugar. Try make a sorrel sauce fo the Turkey this year! And the color!!! Oh my. Here’s some sorrel recipes to try.

Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!

PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30 p.m.

If you do not get an email ORDER CONFIRMATION right after you order then your order is NOT complete. Log back in and your order might still be there waiting for you to check out! If you have any trouble or questions at all, we are here to help; simply reply to this email.

COVID19: Northeast Georgia Locally Grown will continue to help bring the best selection of local and chemical-free foods to you and your family as long as our volunteers feel comfortable and safe. Thanks for recognizing we can all do our part in operating in the safest way possible for upcoming markets. We are and will continue to operate under CDC and local guidelines to the best of our ability and knowledge. Be on the lookout for the order reminder email with any changes to pickup or ways you can help minimize risk for our volunteers and each other. Thanks for your support!
