Foothills Market:  Almost Closing Time

The Foothills Market will be closing at noon today. Remember the market won’t be open next week, so don’t miss your chance to pick up something fresh and local for Thanksgiving dinner!

Independence,VA:  Thanksgiving is almost upon us!

Good evening!

Be sure to save some money and pre-order your pesticide-free Christmas trees and wreaths on the Online Market (click the “Hoilday Decorations” tab on the left side of the market screen)! *Trees and wreaths not pre-ordered will be 20% more expensive on the day of our Holiday Markets. * This means, you should place your order by Monday night at 8 pm if you plan to pick up a tree at our Nov. 24th Holiday Market and don’t want to pay the higher costs. However you plan to do it, the proceeds go to funding the Independence Farmers Market and we sure do appreciate your support!

You guys, we have some great vendors! It’s NOVEMBER and there is still a variety of produce available to order! Be sure to thank your farmers the next time you see them! Also, check out the “Baked Goods” section and cut down on time by letting our awesome vendors cook for you this year!

To Shop: Independence Farmers Market.

Upcoming Events:

November 24th is our first Holiday Market! Bring all of your friends and family out to Town Park from 11 am – 3 pm to enjoy a fun day of shopping locally. The Kid’s Corner will be open with free activities for the little ones (and the young at heart). Don’t worry about getting too cold, coffee and cider will be available for a donation!

December 2nd will be our second and final Holiday Market of the season. Again, gather up everyone you know and bring them out to Town Park for another fun day of shopping! Parade and Christmas tree lighting to follow!

Champaign, OH:  Hey, Hey, Hey!

Ok…your market manager has decided to keep the market open ONE EXTRA HOUR!!

The market will close at 9am, this morning!! It is our last market before Thanksgiving, so give that some thought when placing your orders!!

I am keeping it open, one more hour, due to the fact that we will be closed, next week, AND, some of our customers are returning from being gone, and all accounts needed to be reactivated…

I just want everyone to have time to get their orders in!!

See you at 9am…

Heritage Farm :  Turkey Update.......Please Read!!!!!

Turkeys Deliver 11/18 (Sat orders) and 11/21 (Wednesday orders and on farm)

We will deliver Turkeys on Saturday 11/18 for Saturday customers and Tuesday 11/21 for Wednesday customers. We will be delivering the same routes as normal. We will also have an on farm pick up option for Tuesday 11/21. Addresses and approximate times are listed Here

Turkeys will be delivered fresh to whatever location you selected when you ordered or to whatever market that you purchased the bird from.

We recommend you either freeze your bird until ready to cook on Thanksgiving or, if you want to keep fresh, keep it unopened on ice until Thanksgiving.

We can NOT guarantee you any particular size bird. We will do our best to accommodate your particular requests at delivery but we do not have any way to guarantee a specific weight. Birds are pasture raised and organically fed and we do not have the ability to control how big or small they are. Pickups are first come first served from available inventory so if you have something specific in mind come early. All we can guarantee is they will be GOOD TO EAT AND HEALTHY for you, your family and guests!!

ALL deposits are non-refundable unless and until we have an available buyer for your bird.
