Grumpy Goat:  Weblog Entry


Hey everyone! We have a busy next couple of weeks to let you know about. First off, this coming weekend we will be set up at Handmade Harvest in Minster. Come see us Friday afternoon or Saturday morning in the Hausfeld Motors parking lot. We will have our bread available Friday afternoon so stop on down. There will be lots of other great venders too. That being said, if you want bread please order for Friday or Tuesday pick up. There won’t be bread at the Sidney Farmers market, though Matt will be set up with veggies- sorry for the inconvenience.

The following weekend is The Wool Gathering in Yellow Springs (Sat 10-6, Sun10-5) We will have a booth filled with our homegrown yarn and fiber so come visit! There will be animals to see, ice cream to eat, and more yarn than you know what to do with. Bread will only be available for Tuesday pick up that week and Matt will still be set up at the Sidney Farmers Market with veggies!

And mark your calendars for the weekend after that – New Bremen Pumpkinfest! We will be set up in the Artisan Showcase tent on Saturday. Bread will be available at the Sidney Farmers Market that day as well!

I’m tired just thinking about this month! Hope we see you out there!

We hope you all are having a great Labor Day! Need to replenish your pantry after the celebrations? Check out all our farmers/artisans have to offer—meats, fresh produce, baked goods, crafted items, and more!

This Saturday is Kids Day! The Market is open 8am-12pm, with Kids Day from 9am-12pm.

Be sure to “RSVP” those kiddos for the 2022 POP Club!

What does Kids Day look like this year?

1. We brought back the 2 Bite Club! We will be preparing 2 Bite Club samples for each kiddo to taste a different fruit, veggie, or recipe each month, purchased straight from our SSFM Farmers.
2. Each month your kiddos will receive POP tokens to spend with our farmers on veggies and fruits!
3. We will have local non-profits set up with additional activities, just for kids.
4. This will continue to be a FREE and fun event brought to you by Simmons Foods and Arvest Bank!
To participate in this year’s POP Club all you need to do is login to your Locally Grown account (https://siloamsprings.locallygrown.net), click on the Kids Day tab, and add a “Kids Day RSVP” for each participating child to your cart, and check out! This will help us know how many kiddos plan to stop by during Kids Day (please remember that the program is set up for ages 3-12). Don’t forget, you’ll have to “RSVP” each month.

When you arrive at the market on Kids Day, head straight to the Outdoor Farmers Market Hub located in the Memorial Park concession stand from 9am-12pm to participate in POP Club activities. 2 Bite Club, POP tokens pick up, and all other information will be located at the concession stand.Your kiddos will earn their $2 tokens each Kids Day, then be able to shop the Outdoor Market, using their money to purchase fruits, vegetables, or a plant that produces fruit or vegetables. When you pick up your kits, be sure to peruse the market and check out the young entrepreneur Kids Day booths as well!

Champaign, OH:  Rainy Days and Mondays


…always get me down…
(The Carpenters)

So, on this rainy holiday weekend, although it put a damper on my usual backyard Labor Day weekend campout, it’s let me catch up on some much needed rest, reading, taking a break from social media, chatting with friends, and generally just being lazy.

But, here we are on this Monday, and I wanted to remind you that the market closes, tomorrow, at 8am…

AND…we welcome back Sarah Doty of S&S Naturals, after her very busy season away from the market!! She has restocked all of her Elderberry products, and all of her other loveliness!!

Also…JC Growers has added their dried tomato powder back to the market in their spice line!!

We’ve got it all, and love bringing it to you, each and every week!!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam
