Dothan, Alabama:  Welcome November!


Avalon Farms is Back!

This and That

Have you been outside today? Drought aside, the weather is MARVELOUS! We’ve had a busy day. A nice family from Marianna brought their son up to meet our dogs this morning. There’s a lady training four legged critters under the big pecan tree by the barn. So far the Mr. and I have got about 1000 of 3000 strawberry plugs in the ground. It’s a good day to be a farmer!


ANNOUNCEMENTS

Our Market vendors and I are having fun planning and plotting our Christmas Open House this year. It will be Thursday, December 1, 3pm to 7pm in sync with Dothan Nursery’s annual Christmas Open House. This is always a fun and festive event. The Nursery provides refreshments and our farmers will have grills going with samples of all sorts of wonderful foods. This year we are inviting a few outside vendors whose food related products are guaranteed to make Open House THE place for wholesome sustainable foods and gifts.

I am beyond excited to announce AVALON FARMS IS BACK!!!!!! Those of you who have been with the Market a long time will remember Wendy and her delicious vegetables. Be sure to read her blurb in the Vendor section.

Thank you to everyone who continues to give to the Haiti Relief Fund. Kirsty and Mackenzie, the couple spearheading the assistance to the farmers co-op in Petit Trou, are still in Haiti. Electronic communication is still out of the question from there but we hope to get a report after they return next week.

SANDSPUR FARMS “Along with all of our pork cuts (inventory updated) we’ve listed our holiday hams too.

Duette, FL:  Featured This Week


Dear Friends,
This week our special vegetable is Kohlrabi. It looks a little odd but it is delicious
As soon as you bring your kohlrabi home, separate the leaves from the bulbs. Keep both the leaves and the bulbs in the fridge; the leaves go in a sealed zip-top plastic bag, the bulbs are stored loose. Use the leaves within a few days, but the unpeeled bulbs will last for weeks.

Eat It All

Although the bulb of the plant is the most frequently prepared and eaten portion, the leaves are also entirely edible. Chiffonade them finely and toss them in a vinaigrette, or give them a rough chop and either steam or sauté them, as you would collard greens or kale.

Also, this week we have some green tomatoes, red cherry tomatoes and small yellow pear tomatoes. Please place your orders.

Thank you,
David and Betty

Lake Placid Online Farmer's Market:  Vote for Good Food--November Market Open!


It’s only a few days until the Presidential Election, but you have a chance to vote early—with your dollar, for good food!

You’ve no doubt heard the idea, “vote with your dollar” for local and/or organic food, and it’s absolutely true. Your support of farmer’s markest like this one helps markets grow and, helps farmers grow more to provide for their customers. Even using this market to supplement existing CSA arrangements or other food purchases helps the farmers continue to provide excellent products. Please feel free to share this market with friends. :)

That being said, we have some exciting updates.

?First, Asgaard Farm is back! They have added some exciting items like beef burger patties, beef bratwurst, goat milk caramels, pork products, and several varieties of cheese. Welcome back Asgaard!

Second, in case you missed it, we welcomed a new grower to the market: Eckert Tree Farm, selling maple syrup and several varieties of shelving made at the Farm. You can read more about their admirable maple syrup practices at their website https://www.madebytheadirondacks.com/ and try some maple syrup this month if so inclined!

Third, there are fine offerings from Beth at Rehoboth Homestead, including beets, chicken, fresh duckling, eggs, potatoes and more. I’m particularly excited about sweet potatoes, which are always a staple but especially in the winter months coming up.

Check out the offerings below and feel free to email with any questions!

??Best,? Christie

PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30pm!
Holiday Notes: YES, we will be open the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Market will be closed for the Wednesday AFTER Christmas: Dec 28th only.

Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!

Miami County Locally Grown:  Making a bountiful harvest last!


Think how good fresh peppers and tomatoes would taste in February!

No need for hothouse tomatoes picked unripe and shipped a thousand miles… chop and store fresh produce in your freezer NOW while this warm weather allows a long harvest?

Peppers, tomatoes, carrots, onions, squash and pumpkin puree, chard stalks in place of celery… simply chop or puree and store to have ready-made additions for so many meals!

Even freeze fresh herbs or carrot tops in ice cube trays, to be plopped into stews, soups, stir-fry and countless other options! If you’re into canning and dehydrating, great! If not, freezing our summer and fall bounty is a convenient alternative.

My only caution – be sure to label EVERYTHING, or else your helpful husband may mistake that chopped rhubarb for chopped green bell peppers beginning to redden, and toss copious handfuls into what should have been delicious spaghetti! I learned my lesson, and wish you luck :-)
