https://fayettevillearkansas.locallygrown.net/market.

IMPORTANT NEWS AND NOTES:

WINTER WEATHER IMPACT ON PRODUCE: As you might expect based on snow and ice in January, we don’t have much fresh produce available this week. This will change soon, so don’t give up on us.

NOT ONLINE THIS WEEK: Several of our folks (Dripping Springs, A&A Orchard, and White River Creamery) are out of town or not able to sell online this week. This is temporary.

EGGS: Limited supply. If you see some available, don’t wait to order.

OTHER GOOD THINGS AVAILABLE: Mushrooms, meats, baked goods, honey, tamales, processed products, craft items, locally roasted coffee beans and other goodies ARE available. Hatch Farm is back online this week with fruit jams and more.

PICKUP TIME THURSDAY Feb 9 is 4:30-5:30. Note: if you know that you cannot make it by 5:30 pm, but you want to order this week, just reply to this email or text 479-935-5111 and we will work with you on a plan.

IT’S LESS THAN 10 DAYS UNTIL VALENTINE’S DAY! Remember our art and craft makers if you are thinking about a special someone. Our online market offers some great ideas for gift giving: handmade cards, handcrafted leather goods, locally sewn fabric items, wooden crafts, art prints and more!

All of our bakers have GREAT variety right now—including sweet treats, cookies, pastries, breads, granola and other goodies.

Fresh tamales (meat and vegie) are delivered hot and fresh on Thursday just before pickup. If you don’t feel like cooking on Thursday this is a great option. They can be eaten after pickup or will also keep fine in your frig until you are ready for them.

Special dietary needs? Check out vegan and gluten free baked goods and locally made seitan items. We speak from personal experience that all of these items are delicious and would please anyone no matter what their dietary needs are.

A UNIQUE GIFT: how about a certificate for local knife sharpening services? Can be redeemed at a local drop off location.

SEARCHING TIP: On large categories such as baked goods or meats click on the category to get a drop down of specific items in that category.

HOW TO CHECK ITEMS FROM A PARTICULAR SELLER? Scroll down on left side until you see “show specific growers”. If all the boxes are checked, you can click on “reverse all” then click the boxes on or off of those sellers you want to see. Then click “show specific growers” again.

BUYING TIP: If you see items that you want but not much available, order and pay and then log back in and continue shopping. Your orders will be combined and you will only be charged once.

DELIVERY OPTION IS AVAILABLE FOR FAYETTEVILLE ZIP CODES BUT MUST BE REQUESTED WHEN YOU ORDER OR NO LATER THAN THURS 9 AM.

SNAP CUSTOMERS ONLY: you may choose pay at pickup and bring your EBT card on Thursday. We will swipe your card and match up to $100 of your order. NOTE: please do not bring tokens or match cards to pickup at the online market.

NOTE: New customers and orders always welcome—no minimum order required, no weekly order required.

TIPS:

1) Sellers sometimes add more products later in the ordering period, so be sure to check back. The product list changes each week, even from the same seller, so it’s worth exploring the categories you are interested in.

2) Multiple orders from you at different times will be automatically combined into one order before pickup and you will only be charged once.

PICKUP LOCATION:
The OUTDOOR parking area at the south end of the new part of the Fayetteville Public Library. Follow the line of cars towards the building and stay in your car in line while we get your order.

Thank you for your continued support of the online market.

Foothills Market:  The Market is Open!


The sun is shining today in Foothills Market country, and it’s a little easier to believe spring is on its way!

Last week’s message talked about some of our offerings in sweet spreads, and we’re going to continue that thought this week. We have a new product on the market – Kumquat Marmalade. According to the Ball Blue Book, marmalade is “a soft fruit jelly with small pieces of fruit or peel suspended in the transparent jelly.” Marmalade is often made with citrus, like the version we have on the market this week.

Put together your order between now and Wednesday at 5:00 p.m., and we’ll have it ready for you on Thursday afternoon for pickup.

Eat something fresh this week!

The Wednesday Market:  We're Open! Is Spring on the Way???


Good afternoon.

The Wednesday Market is open for orders. Please place your order by 10 p.m. Monday. Orders are ready for pick up between 2 and 4 p.m. Wednesday. See the website for this week’s product offerings. Here is the link: https://wednesdaymarket.locallygrown.net/market

Will we have an early spring? Earlier this week, the groundhogs made their annual appearances and predictions, and they are not in agreement. The most famous one, Punxsutawney Phil of Pennsylvania, predicts six more weeks of winter. General Beauregard Lee of Dauset Trails in Jackson, Georgia, predicts that we will have an early spring. The official start to spring is March 20, but who knows what the weather will be like on that day? I am thankful to see the sun shining today after the gloomy, misty, and cold week we just came through. By Wednesday and Thursday of this week, weather forecasters say that the highs will be close to 70 degrees. Don’t get too excited, though, as the lows for next weekend will be in the 30s again. For those of us who are chomping at the bits to start planting our gardens, it is still too early! We’ll just have to be content watching the narcissus and daffodils bloom.

Thank you for supporting Georgia Grown. We’ll see you at the Market.

Thanks,

Beverly Walter

GROWER & MARKET NOTES

HAPPY CHOCOLATE DAY!


Ahhhhhhh . . . love is in the air! Valentine’s season is upon us and expressions of affection are encouraged in all ages from kindergarten to seniors in all it’s resplendent expressions. One of the favorite ways to express affection is with chocolates. Some of us are still carrying around results of overdoing the chocolate in days gone by!

Regardless Chocolate is not something to be feared or avoided as the right chocolate in the right amount is actually quite good for you.

Here are 7 health benefits of chocolate from BULLETPROOF
1. Chocolate for a better mood. It can improve your mood, especially in high-pressure or stressful situations.
2. Chocolate makes you eat less …
3. Chocolate for a healthy heart …
4. Chocolate for glowing skin and sun protection …
5. Chocolate may lower inflammation …
6. Chocolate is a prebiotic …
7. Chocolate for anti-aging

Sunrise Acres chocolate treats available on the Market Page

If chocolate is not your thing there are still great healthy ways to celebrate. Following are some blast from the past reasonably healthy ideas:

This is a delicious alternative to red roses for Valentine’s Day. This one gift works best served up on a platter. The chives stand in as flower stems. To make the tulips, slice into plum tomatoes 3/4 of the way and stuff with probiotic-rich labneh, cream cheese or Greek yogurt.


Who says you have to have sweets or pink or chocolate? Cookie cutters can make any ordinary food fit the occasion.


Decorative items can dress up healthy treats like this yogurt parfait.


Cupid Arrow Skewers are a great way to get kids involved in healty holiday habits

D’S JELLIES: D’s Jellies & D’s Farmhouse Kitchen Recipes – We have added 16 Apache BlackBerry plants to our fruit orchard. Fresh blackberries are sold in late May and early June. I don’t have any Jellies listed right now because I am sold out! It will be late July before I will have D’s Hot Pepper Jelly. I should have Mayhaw & BlackBerry Jelly in May. My Cookbook has been a successful venture for me! There are 180 Recipes for delicious main dishes, desserts, breads, salads, and soups. Have you got your copy yet? Dianne Herring

AVALON FARMS: Hello from a bright brisk sunny farm day. Been out doing odds and ends, but mostly waiting for the soil to dry out so I can plant Snap Peas.


As you can see (above), some things are actually growing out in the field. From left to right, we have Leeks, 2 rows of Kinston Sweet Onions, and then 2 rows of Elephant Garlic. These take a long time to grow so they get mulched with peanut shells. Helps to reduce weeds and retain moisture. I run string on electric fence posts to mark the bed sides and leave them till the plants size up.

Finally all the planning, counting and scribbling has started to turn into seeds in dirt. These will be on the heat mat till they sprout and then will move off till another cold snap.

HORTON’S FARM: What is sweeter than chocolate? HONEY! And we’ve packaged our Classic and Cinnamon Creamed Honey for your sweetest gifts this Valentine’s Day.


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!
