Market News

Hello!

We know this time of year schedules are changing – school is starting, vacations are ending… Thanks so much for including us in your already busy day! We appreciate the effort you put into buying local and supporting us!

There is a lot of great summer produce this week! There is a special on the ‘Juliet’ paste tomatoes if you want to do any preserving for winter. Also red peppers are in! These beauties are so versatile, and good for you! They carry a lot of vitamin C, and kids love them sliced up raw.

The Bloomy Rind is back with us this week with another amazing selection. They are gearing up for The Southern Artisan Cheese Festival. This year it is Saturday, September 12th from 3 – 6 pm at RocketTown in downtown Nashville. Mark your calendars!

Also, the Peach Truck is no longer, but Dozen Bakery has amazing Peach Galettes available! The fruit of the moment is watermelon! Don’t let summer slip by without indulging in this treat! There is nothing like it. We have them on the Market under “Fruits”, and they come in all sizes!

We certainly appreciate your support. We know you have many options for buying local produce these days, and are thankful to you for ordering your good veggies, fruits, meats and eggs through Fresh Harvest!

Thanks so much – and we’ll see you on Wednesday!

John and Tallahassee

Northeast GA Locally Grown:  Weblog Entry


Wait… Justin isn’t going to write Sunday blogs anymore!? Looks like someone will have to develop a new skill. Free-writing I think it’s called. No promises. Having the opportunity to lead a nutrition meeting this last Tuesday, I suppose we can start there. In preparing for the topic at hand, I realized my priorities around nutrition have changed in the last year or so. My amazing mom has been a registered nurse for most of her life has always wanted to combine what we eat with our long term health. So she got a nutrition certification, started monthly nutrition meetings at her home, and asked me to share at this month’s gathering. Or was it just an excuse to share food with good people? The fruit not falling far from the tree, I also have an interest in nutrition… But my past concentration on nutrient density, bioavailability, blah blah blah has slowly changed with my education, involvement with this market, and getting to know more farmers. I pick my weekly food items based on diversity, peak harvest season, color, taste, methods used to grow, and I might even be a little biased towards my favorite people growing it. My diet is more and more centered around what’s fresh and available, and what’s fresh and available is new almost every week of the year. It’s also interesting to think about our relationship with our growers in turn affecting our meals. If enough people express interest in a certain variety of produce that grows well here, we might see it being grown the next year! That is the beauty in small diverse farms, they typically throw in an experimental crop from year to year.

Anyway, the topic I chose for the nutrition gathering was “Stress and Food.” I went through the mechanics of short term stressors and long term stressors, how your body produces some powerful drugs/hormones, and how those hormones like cortisol can affect how your body assimilates food. I learned some interesting things while researching, but the in-short, the message was to come to the plate relaxed and with a clear head. When you do this, your body is able to more efficiently transport, store, and build more efficiently. A whole other topic is being aware of stressors (like driving in Atlanta, resenting your boss, or a sleepless night) and how you can create ways to dissipate the cortisol from your system.

That being said, I leave you with: Don’t be an Orthorexic. Because stressing out about eating healthy would be irony at it’s finest.

My current kitchen experiments: cold brewed chamomile tea (unsweet or honey sweetened), chilled chanterelle and watercress salad, lemongrass and nutmeg infused pickles

Oh! And if you are interested in growing food, there is a workshop for small and beginning farmers Tuesday August 18th 5pm in Clayton (Register by this Friday) See Flyer: https://goo.gl/BdGMdd

Dawson Local Harvest:  You'll be Glad You Were Born, when you eat this Okra and Corn!


DAWSON LOCAL HARVEST for August 14th

You’ll be Glad You Were Born when you eat this Okra and Corn!

HI EVERYONE!

Okay, so I’ll admit I will never be a poet, but you gotta love that line! Yes, LEILANI’S finally has Organic Okra and Organic White Sweet Corn! And once you taste it I think you’ll agree it was worth the wait. First off, the Corn is simply the best I’ve ever had. It is organic, which could mean corn worms, but it’s great, and it’ll only be around 2 – 3 weeks, SO ORDER NOW!!

The Okra is right behind the corn in taste, and is a nice medium size and excellent texture. We should have this a while longer, but I wouldn’t wait too long on this either.

In other news, BRAMBERI FARMS still is able to harvest fresh Red Raspberries long after most other pickers have quit. And MY DAILY BREAD continues to have a full menu of delicious Breads, Dips, Jellies and more. Finally, the Harvest has a new supply of Georgia White Sheimp from TOM’S, plus free-range PORK, CHICKEN, and EGGS.

THE MARKET IS NOW OPEN!

REMEMBER! You can order until Tuesday night at 8pm. Pick up your order at Leilani’s Gardens Friday afternoons from 4 to 7pm.

You’ll find the DAWSON LOCAL HARVEST at http://dawsonville.locallygrown.net

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! We guarantee your satisfaction with all products in the DAWSON LOCAL HARVEST.

Have a happy and healthy week!

Salmon Update!




The Salmon is Available for Ordering!

Hello, Everyone! There’s still some salmon left.
I’m being told that there may be a chance for a second catch to be added but not guaranteed yet. So if you are wanting salmon, I recommend purchasing while you have the chance.
This deliciously fresh salmon is carefully selected directly from the fishermen’s nets from the cold Alaskan waters before it ever enters the ship’s hold. Only the best is chosen to become part of " Running Wild Alaskan Seafood’s" premium offerings. The fish is immediately bled and iced down before making the short boat ride to the processor located in Homer, Alaska. Here it is quickly processed and flash frozen (to ensure freshness) then packed into coolers for the overnight trip to Georgia. This is the freshest salmon available without going to Alaska to catch it yourself. Red Sockeye salmon is packed with flavor and nutrition.
The packages will be in a couple different ounce packages and range in prices based on $19.00 a pound.

See you Tuesday!

Market Manager
