Independence,VA:  Market is OPEN for August 3


Hello all!

The Online Market is OPEN for pickup Wednesday, August 3rd at the Grayson Landcare/IFM Office (104 Courthouse st.) between 4-6 pm.

I also wanted to take a minute to introduce myself as your new Online Market Manager! My name is Christian Cooke and I am so excited to get to know everyone in our fantastic Market community here in Grayson County. A little about myself and then I’ll let you shop—I am a recent transplant to the area from Pennsylvania and a first generation homesteader with my husband and son at our tiny second year farm in Whitetop. We fell in love with the rugged beauty of the area and ended up following our dream to leave the city and pursue a more self-sufficient lifestyle. We are loving every second of it and hope to get more involved in the Farmer’s Market as growers.

Please feel free to reach out to me with your online market questions. Text or call me at 828-244-9918 or email me at ifmmarketplace@gmail.com.

It is officially Tomato season! Don’t forget the Tomato Festival is Friday, August 5th. We’ll have a tomato tasting and the People’s choice salsa contest returns after a 2 year break. Bring a quart of salsa to the Market by 9:30. You can also enter the Monster tomato contest. It doesn’t have to be pretty or ripe, just big. Bring it to the Market by 11. Weigh-in at noon.

If you’d like to schedule a curbside pickup to conveniently have your box awaiting upon your arrival, please feel free to schedule a time using the Calendly link below. Otherwise, You can drop by and pick up your order inside the office any time on Wednesdays between 4-6 pm.

I look forward to meeting you all as we round out the summer season.

Thank you, happy shopping!

Miami County Locally Grown:  The Market is open!


Shop here

Hi everyone,

So this is the last week we’ll be using this sales platform/ordering site.

Next Tuesday, August 2nd, when I open the market at 9pm, it’ll be on the new sales platform. There will be a message here telling you where to go.

Jennifer did a phenomenal job setting this all up on locallygrown.net, and this platform served MCLG very well for quite a long time. We’ve just found that there are some limitations that prohibit us from growing the market in the direction we’d like. So we’ve found a new platform, Open Food Network, that has some capabilities that we didn’t have before.

You’ve all been so supportive and helpful to me as I’ve tried to follow in Jennifer’s footsteps. Now I’m asking you to keep supporting MCLG as we make this transition.

If anyone needs help with ordering on the new site, our email and phone number will remain the same. Please reach out anytime!

Erin
