Manchester Locally Grown:  Reminder: Ordering Closes at 10 pm




Manchester Locally Grown market





We always have a few new farmers, waiting their turn to join our market and offer their wonderful products to all our customers. In order to add more farmers, we feel it would be best to grow our customer base a bit. We want to be able to offer you and your friends some new local farm products.

The farmers and market managers would really appreciate your efforts to help spread the word about our fantastic market. What a great local resource for fresh, local farm products. Please pick up a few business cards to hand out to your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Advertising is very expensive, and we want to use our slim market funds in a responsible manner.

Good morning!




This is just a friendly reminder to place your order online by 10 pm this evening.

It seems as though every week, someone says, “I meant to order last week, but forgot till about 9:45.” Well, that’s fine, for two reasons:

1. Every single order placed before I close the market will be filled, unless the farmers run out of some items; and

2. I never close the market at 10:00 sharp. It just doesn’t happen (and to those who know me, that comes as no surprise.) It may be closer to midnight before it gets turned off. However, it’s better not to put off ordering, because some items may be sold out.

Lastly, remember to hit that last “submit” button. I really dislike disappointing a customer who comes to market, only to find no order in their name because they didn’t hit the last button. When your order is placed, you will receive an email confirmation. If for any reason you fail to receive this confirmation, please contact Linda as soon as you realize it’s missing.

Also please go to our Facebook page & like, comment, and share this week’s post. Facebook isn’t allowing me to post on multiple sites, or post multiple photos. So please help us spread the word. Surveys indicate that word of mouth is the most effective form of advertisement. Please help us advertise our fantastic growing market!

See you on Thursday!


Blessings,
Michael & Linda

Greener Acres Farm:  NEW Product -- Peppermint Hydrosol


All NEW from Green"er" Acres Farm… We are now distilling our own essential oils from herbs grown on the farm. All herbs are herbicide and pesticide free. We use a steam distillation process to extract the oils from our plants. The by product of the distillation process provides us with what are known as hydrosols. It is the steam that is extracted with some of the properties of the plant material, meaning a less potent smell and flavor making it a safe alternative to essential oils. Can be used a fragrance or additive to natural, homemade home cleaning products or beauty products.

We will be posting a video of the distilling process with next week’s weblog.

Try yours today.

Market News

This week marks the equinox and the first official day of Summer. And right on cue, we’ve got a week full of sunny skies with temps up in the 90s. Should be a wonderful weekend for AthFest, even if it’s so, so hot. I got my first quart of blueberries this week, and promptly turned them into a pie, mixed with some ALG rhubarb I still had in my fridge from a few weeks ago. Turned out tasty enough that I just had pie for dinner last night. I just might finish it off before bed.

Thank you so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes Athens such a great area in which to live. We’ll see you on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!
