The Market ‘Hub’ / Lawrenceville Market Needs a New Home


I will be sending an email out this evening about this issue. I apologize for not getting it out over the weekend; however, not only did I get called in to work but also worked overtime and just didn’t get it written. Working ‘normal hours’ today and will finish this evening! Hint!!! There is good news and Market will continue!



PLEASE Note

I cannot stress enough the need for us to meet minimum ordering amounts for delivery to be feasible for our Farmers as well as to keep the Market open! At the present time, we are a little over 1/3 of the way to minimum! If you haven’t ordered, please click the link below and place your order now!


We appreciate your support of our LOCAL Farmers and of the Market! Please SHARE the Market with friends, family, neighbors and co-workers!

Cedar Seeder Wellness Farm to the Rescue!


Last year George Jones of Cedar Seeder Wellness Farm and I spoke about adding his Farm as a Market location. Due to various projects that needed completion, the decision to add the Farm to Heirloom Living Market locations was put on hold. Knowing our re-location quandary, George has offered to allow us to set up shop at the Farm. He has made some changes to one of his outbuildings and I will be going over there on Wednesday to meet with him and hopefully finalize plans to move Market this Saturday.


That is the good news! It is a solution that will solve our “Market Hub” issues; however, it will be a bit far for Crossfit Ozone (Lawrenceville Market Members)!


Please know that I appreciate the support that the faithful Members of this Market have given over the last 3 years. The friendships that have been formed are treasured and I pray will continue! Right now, there is no other solution. I will keep looking for a place in Lawrenceville and re-open a pickup location when (and if) I can find an appropriate place. Since it will only necessitate 4 hours a week and no storage for a fridge and freezer, it may be that it will be easier to find a place in Lawrenceville. In the meantime, I ask for your patience and invite you to come to pickup at Cedar Seeder Wellness Farm starting next week.


The information for the new location is:

Cedar Seeder Wellness Farm
4108 Anderson Livsey Lane
Snellville, GA 30039

The other option that I can offer you is ordering from either of Nora Lea’s Markets, Buford Locally Grown or Suwanee Locally Grown Market. Obviously, the names of the Markets indicate their locations! Pickup is on Tuesday at Buford and Thursday at Suwanee and Nora has some of the same Farmers, Vendors and Artisans that we have on our Market: Cedar Rock Dairy (Raw Cow Milk and Eggs), Little Tots Estate (Raw Goat Milk and Eggs), My Daily Bread (Organic Bakery items), Fry Farm (Veggies) You can find a link to Nora’s Markets by clicking either of the links below:


Take me to Buford Locally Grown Market.



Take me to Suwanee Locally Grown Market.

This week’s Market orders a pitifully small and we are not even 1/3 of the way to meeting minimum as I write this. The last few weeks have been slow also and I do not know if it is because of the coming changes, people being on vacation or general disinterest in continuing. Our Farmers must have a minimum amount of orders for it to be worth stopping activities at their Farms to package, sort, deliver goods to the Market. Truthfully, we have been pushing the envelope on this for a while and I applaud the Farmers for their passion and dedication and continuation of deliveries!

If you have not ordered, please get your order in by 8:00pm this evening! Remember Milk Orders must be in by 2:00pm! I hope to see you this week at Market pickup It will be our final week at our present location.


HELP!


Again, I am asking for Volunteers for helping pack up and load the Market this Saturday. We will meet at 1:15 at the Market and it should take no more than a couple/three hours to get it all done. George of Cedar Seeder Wellness Farm has generously volunteered his truck and trailer! We do need another truck to transport the 6 tables to Sarah’s home which is about 8 minutes east on 316! Please contact me by phone at 404-432-4337. We CANNOT do this by ourselves!


We appreciate your support of our LOCAL Farmers and of the Market! Please SHARE the Market with friends, family, neighbors and co-workers!




Take me to the Crossfit Market.


Market Opens for Ordering: Friday at 9:00am
Market Closes: Monday at 8:00pm
Market Pickup: Thursday
2:30pm – 5:30pm
Pickup Location: 1385 Winder Highway

BUY LOCAL ~ Know your Farmer!

Champaign, OH:  Suddenly, It's Monday


Your market manager is making her way back to realty!

I am so sorry that the market opened, late, this weekend! I was secluded in a lovely lake house in North Carolina, with the most epic of high school reunions!

I had zero internet service, and while at first, I freaked out, but then I gave in, and lived and laughed and loved my favorite people who were the first loves of my life!!

It has been so long since I have let myself go be free, away, on vacation!

So, while I hope you all understand, this volunteer market manager had the time of her life!

Go, order, the seasonal items are rockin!

XOXO

Market News

This week marks the equinox and the first official day of Summer. Looks like it’ll be a beautiful start to it too, weather-wise. The days won’t get too hot, and we’ll be getting plenty of rain. The summer veggies love this weather (I finally got my own tomato plants caged up today, and they’re seeming pretty happy) and even the leafy greens are able to keep on producing. I know it’ll never happen, but I wouldn’t mind if the rest of the summer stayed just like this.

Thank you so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes Athens such a great area in which to live. We’ll see you on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!

Dawson Local Harvest:  Get Your Juicer Ready! Big Carrot Sale!


Dawson Harvest for June 23es

Get Your Juicer Ready! Big Carrot Sale!

HI EVERYBODY!

We’re at that point approaching Summer where it gets too hot for cool-weather Vegetables. The Good News for You is we had to pick all of those veggies, including Carrots! LEILANI’S has put all the Carrots ON SALE for just $2.50 a pound. Here’s your opportunity to stock up and make lots of delicious and nutritious Carrot Juice.

Have you had a chance to try some of the great new products from CULTURAL TRADITIONS? I tried their Carrot-Ginger Jun and it is excellent. Jun is a type of komboucha, but Tanya makes hers with fermented green-tea and honey instead of black-tea and sugar. It’s very hard to describe, but quite interesting and refreshing, and it’s very good for you as well. Give it a try; it’s in the Fermented/Probiotic Products section.

Last week I mentioned SHADY ACRES FARM as a new vendor to The Market. They give us an additional resource for free-range chemical-free non-GMO Eggs. They’ll also contribute more and different varieties of all-natural Fruit and Vegetables to The Market as we get into July. Welcome, SHADY ACRES.

Don’t forget FIVE HENS FARMS has once again added Bone-in Pork Chops to their listings in Meats.

THE MARKET IS NOW OPEN!

REMEMBER! You can now order until Tuesday night at 9 pm. Pick up your order at Leilani’s Gardens Friday afternoons from 4 to 6 pm.

You’ll find the DAWSON LOCAL HARVEST at http://dawsonville.locallygrown.net

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible! We guarantee your satisfaction with all products in the DAWSON LOCAL HARVEST.

Have a happy and healthy week!
