United States Virgin Islands:  Your Locally Grown Market Week of 1-19-14


Good morning!

Your market this week if full of wonderful produce, baked goods, and crafts. Take home organically grown celery from RAS Sonrise Daughter Stand Farm – a bargain for your health when you consider that conventional celery is one of the top three most pesticide-laden crops, up there with peaches and strawberries.
Bijou Farm is back this week, with beautiful kale, fresh herbs, and cut flowers!
If you have yet to sample TLC’s lovely artisanal breads, snatch one up this week. They are baked fresh the day of market, and often arrive still warm from the oven!
Mount Victory Camp’s Malay apples are just beginning to come in! Try this delicious tropical fruit as is, or if you’re feeling industrious, make apple sauce.

We’ll see you Wednesday!
Emma Haynes & Your Locally Grown Producers

P.S. There are but a handful of memberships left for Ridge to Reef’s Winter CSA that kicks off this week! If you’d like a ‘share’ of fresh, organic local produce every Saturday without having to order it online every week, sign up at http://ridgetoreef.csasignup.com/members

Siloam Springs, AR:  Sunshine and Fresh Air!


Farmers Market of Siloam Springs

Market is open for business again! Orders will be accepted through Wednesday at 5 p.m. www.siloamsprings.locallygrown.net


My family and I have been enjoying the sunshine and even opened a few windows at the house today. It was so nice to have a fresh breeze in the house. Seems like we are having just the right weather inspire our farmers as they are planning their planting season.

Market management is already hard at work planning the spring through fall season. We’ve had some inquiries from new farmers too! I have great expectations for this years market. We have some of the best vendors in Northwest Arkansas. I’ll continue to post updates as we work through the planning stages.

Have a great week!

Bits and Bites

For Chrome users or plain text users,
you will find this easier to read if you go to the Market and choose Weblog …it’s easier on the eyes!

Greetings to Lilburn, Crossfit and Hamilton Mill Market Folks:

Mary is doing well in her recovery! She thanks everyone for the prayers, well-wishes and offers of meals! If you are interested in helping out, please contact Leah at 404-245-2236.

Marie Wheeler offered both Gluten Free Cornbread and her wonderfully yummy Gluten Free Banana Bread at the Markets this past week! Both were a great success! Although they are not yet listed on the Market, both products will be available at all Market pickups! If you would like to pre-order, please add it in the comment section when completing your order for Market. I have it on very good authority that she is working on making some other Gluten Free goodies, so be sure and check out her offerings on the Farmer Sales Table!

New Artisan

Welcome to Paul Foster of Burr Stone Milling Company. Paul is also the supplier of the honey available at Market pickup which many have dubbed “Swamp Honey” as the hives are located in the swamps. With all of the information that is coming to light about GMO’s, pesticides and herbicides and how they are affecting our Bee population, Paul’s decision for the location of his hives ensure the Bees’ safety and sustainability!

Paul’s interest in Grist Mills prompted him to restore 2 antique mills and after some research for good Organic, GMO free corn is now grinding Corn Meal, Corn Flour and Grits and is making them available on Heirloom Living Markets! Both Yellow and White Corn products are available. Like so many items these day, it has been difficult or impossible to find GMO free Corn in Georgia. (You may remember last summer, we had no corn listed on the Market!) The Corn that Paul is using comes from an Organic Farm in Illinois! Please check out these new offerings which will be listed later today! Welcome aboard, Paul!

Farmer/Artisan Updates

My Daily Bread


Dabrielle and Bruce are back! Although, they both enjoyed the time away and relaxation, Dabrielle is glad to be back in the Bakery making us delicious, fresh Yeast Breads, Cookies, Brownies, Tortillas and Sweet Breads! Welcome back!


Mill Creek Spice Company

Greg Wood of Mill Creek Spice Company is back with all of his aromatic spices and teas! Be sure and check out his offerings today!
True Vine Gluten Free


Please keep Lisa of True Vine Gluten Free in your prayers as she continues to recover from a back injury!

Produce Farmers


The recent cold and then the tremendous amount of rain that fell has definitely had an impact on our Farmers and their crops. Please keep Ricky of Back River Farm, Doug of Doug’s Garden, Vicky and Steve of Fry Farm and Cass of Finch Creek Farm in your prayers. They all experienced losses but true to their dedication have replanted and will let us know when they again have products to offer. Burnell Farms, The Veggie Patch and Finch Creek Farms were better able to escape devastation and are busy keep our Members supplied with veggies! Check out their offerings today!

Milk Customers Repost


There seems to be a little confusion about the number of containers needed if you are ordering your milk in Glass Jars. Due to the ‘rotation’ of the jars, you need 3 sets. Let’s look at an example. I get one gallon of milk each week which means I need 2 jars each week. I need to have 6 jars (3 sets) to keep the rotation going. There will always be one set of jars at the Farm to be filled, one set of jars at home with milk in them and one set at the Crossfit Market awaiting pickup by Benny, (The Helper) to Sam (The Farmer). By the time you come to Market to pick up your items, Benny has already dropped off your milk, so the jars that you return on Market Day do not go back to the Farm until the following week on Tuesday. When the Milk orders were smaller, we were able to transport the jars from Crossfit and Hamilton Mill to the Lilburn Market and at that point, jars were transported to the Farm TWICE a week. The Milk orders grew and the Mazda 626 didn’t!

Sam’s schedule last week did not allow time for a jar inventory; however, it is his plan to get that accomplished this weekend. Please check with Marie or me at Market for updates.

Spa City Local Farm Market Co-op:  Wolfe's Pecans are back


Wolfe’s Pecans are Back!

These wonderfully fresh shelled pecans are a delight. Bill says the pecan harvest was unusually late this year, with nuts in their orchard falling in November. You will definitely be pleased if you try them.
