Green Fork Farmers Market:  Weekly Product List


Dear Green Fork Farmers Market customers,

Exciting news! We are happy to announce a new vendor joining us this week—NWA Natural Produce. Vicky and Paul grow vegetables in Lincoln year-round outdoors and in hoop houses. You won’t believe what they have in store for us this week: tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, brussels sprouts, green tomatoes, mustard greens, collards, and possibly green beans. These items won’t be available for preorder this week, but they will have them on their table, so please stop by and take a look on Wednesday from 4-7 pm in the Breezeway at Nightbird Books.

You will also find a terrific selection of other Green Fork Farmers Market products this week for preorder and for sale off the table at the market—vegetables, herbs, eggs, beef, pork, chicken, honey, baked goods, olives, plants, and herbal bath and beauty products.

Order now, and we’ll see you on Wedesday!

Upstate Locally Grown Greenville:  Local Turkey from Welch and Son


Hi, all. Just wanted to let everyone know that Welch and Son (Bill Welch brings you all that delicious pasture-raised chicken available on the market) has 4 pasture-raised Bourbon turkies available on the market. It is selling for 6.50/pound. I can tell you from experience that the Bourbon Red heritage breed of turkey is superior in flavor! It is nothing like the bland white turkey you are probably used to. This will be a treat for all in attendance at your Thanksgiving feast. You can pick up at the farm after the 13th or arrange for delivery to WF or Swamp Rabbit through myself.

The market will be open until Monday at 10am. Thanks for your continued support!

Suwanee Whole Life Co-op:  The Market will be CLOSED next weekend


Hi Everyone,

My husband’s uncle is very ill and is not expected to make it. We’ve decided to just assume that we will be making a trip to Virginia late next week. In light of this, the market will closed next weekend (11/16-11/18).

I wanted to give you all the opportunity to plan ahead and order additional meats, milk, eggs, etc. this weekend for the following week. You may place an additional order and the system will automatically add up your entire order total. The market will close at 5pm on Sunday.

We will still have Nature’s Garden Delivery produce boxes delivered to my house on Tuesday, Nov. 20th. If you are planning to be out of town please remember to put your box on vacation hold or call NGD to let them know.

I will still have pick up this Tuesday (Nov 13th) so there are NO changes this week.

In addition, a few of you have asked me when to expect the Wilderness Family Natural order to be available for pick up. Due to the size of our WFN order I’m expecting it to be in for the 11/27 pickup. I’ll know more after I place our group order this Monday. This is a pre-order and payment is expected at pick up this Tuesday.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,
Nora

Columbina, the newest addition at Rancho Alegre Farm is thriving! Look for her when you come to the Farm! She is a “cutie” and has already had a misadventure! She managed to sneak out of the property and spent one night “on the lam”! But not to worry, she was found very early the next morning, a little weary, but none the worse for wear! She now sticks pretty close to Momma and the other Ladies!

Thank you all for your support!
Joyful thoughts,

Recipes

Happy Lamb Ribs

This recipe comes from Elizabeth Motlow of Lost Cove Farm. They are called “Happy” because most people like them, there are no measurements, and you can’t make a mistake.

Lamb Ribs (slab)
Olive Oil
Soy Sauce
Ginger (fresh)
Garlic (organic if possible, available from CFM) Rosemary, fresh or dried, from CFM Fennel Seeds from CFM Cumin Seeds, lightly chopped Chili Powder from New Mexico, or The Pig

Whisk together olive oil and soy sauce until thick like a salad dressing. Make enough to coat your ribs, but excess liquid is unnecessary.If using organic garlic, do not bother to peel,smash with a hammer and add all to your olive oil & soy sauce. If you are not sure where your garlic came from, peel it. Roughly chop or grate ginger and add to the mix. Add rosemary. I like robust flavors so I use at least half of a whole head of garlic, an equal amount of ginger , and a half tablespoon Rosemary per slab. The recipe also works very well using more modest amounts.
Slather mixture over both sides of ribs and stack if making more than one slab. Cover tightly with plastic and refrigerate over night.

Bring Ribs to room temperature. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Wipe marinade off the ribs using your hand. Put one half to one inch of water in bottom of roasting pan. Rollup or tuck under the ribs any lean boneless pieces, and place curved side down on a rack in the pan. Cover tightly with foil. Place in oven and immediately reduce heat to 250 degrees F. Roast one hour, turn ribs over, roast another hour. They will shrink and become very tender, possibly after two hours, but roast a little longer if necessary.

Remove from oven and while still warm sprinkle both sides with fennel, cumin, chili powder, perhaps more Rosemary, or any other herb you like. At this point you can either grill them for about ten minutes and enjoy,or let cool, cover with foil, refrigerate, and they will be even better the next day. Remove from fridge, let come to room temp, grill or broil for ten minutes, and serve while warm.

Market News



The frost is getting thicker but the fall crops are still going strong – enjoy them while they last. I’m enjoying the shorter days and the ability to slow down and take on winter projects. I hope that you are all enjoying the change in seasons and this more contemplative time of year.

In case you missed it last week, we welcome Chickweed to the market. Chickweed is run by Elizabeth Koella and she has amazing baked goods and vegetables for sale. I highly recommend the pain au chocolate!

Speaking of winter products, the longer nights allows for more handicrafts including spinning and knitting. Hidden Gem has a wide range of beautiful and soft alpaca yarns and roving.

Sequatchie Cove Creamery is back this week with cheese!

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has additional specials this week:
