Conway, AR:  Vote With Your Fork


Greetings Conway Locally Grown Community!
It’s election day, and as members of a democratic society we have the privilege of voting for our leaders, but filling out a ballot is not the only way we vote. We vote every day with the decisions we make on how to spend our time, energy, and money. I would like to remind everyone today that local food is nonpartisan. Fresh, natural, and wholesome food does not lean to the left, right, or any other direction, but it does support our right to good health, our right to a clean environment, and our right to make a living for ourselves producing honest, sustainable food. Remember that when you support Conway Locally Grown, you are voting for an alternative food system that increases the quality of life in central Arkansas. If I don’t inspire you, here’s an old article by Michael Pollan on “Voting With Your Fork”
The market closes tonight at 10pm. Go to conway.locallygrown.net/market to place your VOTE. Remember to hit the checkout button when you are done, and you will receive a confirmation email when your order is placed.
Have a great day!
-Gabe Levin

Tullahoma Locally Grown:  Time to order Local Food!


Hello Everyone,
I hope you’re all having a great fall so far. I hope winter stays back as long as possible. I just don’t like the cold weather!

We have a new grower on the market- Grundy Greens Farm- they are based out of Tracy City and grow hydroponic lettuce and mixed greens. The thing I love about hydroponics is that it produces such a clean and beautiful product. Not only that, but it’s tasty as well! Give their products a try- you won’t be disappointed.

We still have honey, baked goods, meat, plants, and lots of other goodies.

Healthy Harvest Breads has added back their Pumpkin Bread for the holidays. This is very moist and absolutely delicious. One of my favorite recipes. It makes a wonderful breakfast served warm with butter and a great gift for someone you know.

Here’s a note from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse:

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse is running two specials this week.
1) 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.).
2) Also, purple Wandering Jew hanging baskets are HALF-PRICE while supplies last.

Thank you!

Blessings,
Linda

Have a great week and I’ll seeya Thursday!

Thank you for supporting your local farmers and artisans!

McColloms Market:  Update on FFFN Veggies from Sunwarm


This just in from Ellen Beberman:

Dear members,
I am sorry, but I will not be able to deliver the veggies that you ordered this month. The hard frost last night damaged the greens and herbs, and my carrot supply was (unbeknownst to me) greatly diminished by the appetites of my spouse and his coworkers. I apologize. I am hoping to increase my production of greens and veggies for next spring.
Happy winter!
Ellen

Plattsburgh Online Ordering:  Opening for fall 2012


Welcome back! We started the indoor farmers market three weeks ago, and with the longer evenings, are getting the online aspect of the market organized. For this first week, only Rehoboth Homestead products are listed. We were not excluding others, but all the vendors are really busy and I’m the only one who likes to spend time at the computer doing things like this.

We will be opening the online market for orders on Monday nights. We will close orders at 6 p.m. on Thursday so the baker can bake, I can harvest and pack, and others can pack your orders. You can pick up your order at the market on Saturday, or pick up at either Rehoboth Homestead or at Asgaard Farm after 5 on Saturday or at a time you arrange with them. Please choose your default location in your account information. There is also a place to choose the location in your cart, but that needs to be done each time.

Rehoboth Homestead had salsas, jams, vinaigrette, and pickles made with their produce. Please keep them in mind as you look for gifts this fall.

Rural Resources :  Pop, pop, popcorn!!


We have delicious fresh and locally grown popcorn this week!! Just stick it in the microwave and watch it pop. Both children and adults love this kind of popcorn. It also makes great gifts for teachers and co-workers. Order fast as the supply is limited!!
