Independence,VA: Weblog Entry
What a beautiful Sunday! With all of the fun things to do outside, don’t forget to place your order on the Market by tomorrow night at 8 pm!
To Shop: Independence Farmers Market.
Thank you for supporting the Independence Farmers Market!
The Wednesday Market: We're Open!
The Wednesday Market is open for orders. Please place your order by 10 p.m. Monday. Orders are ready for pick up between 3 and 6 p.m. Wednesday. See the website for this week’s product offerings. Here is the link: https://wednesdaymarket.locallygrown.net/market
As you know, the Market was cancelled this past Wednesday due to the ice and snow. Any orders that were placed last week were DELETED from the system. Please place your order for products that you want for this week. In other words, this is a normal ordering cycle (as long as the weather cooperates and no other disaster presents itself!).
Safety is a priority for the managers of The Wednesday Market. If you have been a longtime customer, you may recall a Wednesday afternoon a year or so ago upon which there were tornado warnings throughout our area just as pick up time was about to start. We delayed the Market pick up for a day. Doing so inconvenienced a customer or two, but we felt holding the Market in a tornado was just too risky.
We encourage our Wednesday Market community to pay special attention to the weather when bad conditions are forecast. We will do our best to make the right decision as to whether to go ahead with our regular schedule or postpone or cancel the Market, and send out an email blast to notify everyone.
We are hopeful that Old Man Winter is going to ease up on us soon, and that we will have a warm and happy Spring. Until then, thank you for your support of locally grown agriculture and for buying locally.

Duette, FL: We are Ready for Spring!
We have survived the freeze with just a little damage thanks to frost cloth on tomatoes and strawberries. We will be replanting green beans and squash this week.
Please have a look at what we have and place your orders.

Manchester Locally Grown: Time to Order Fresh Local Farm Products - For Real!
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.
Once again we will “restart” this market for the new year. After another week of terrible cold weather, we’re now ready for spring! And we’re ready to have a fantastic market day! We want you to be able to find the “cream of the crop” from local farmers, the best products picked and made with pride especially for YOU! Thank you for supporting your local farmers and small businessmen and women.
Remember: The order you originally placed for LAST week’s delivery will be waiting for you THIS week on January 25. You do NOT have to reorder those items. Feel free to order additional items, and the software will total both orders together at checkout. If you need to remove an item from last week’s order, please text Linda at (931) 273-9708.
The market will remain open for your orders till Tuesday at 10 pm.
Please be sure to read the section of the page entitled “Important Ordering and Pickup Information.”

Spa City Local Farm Market Co-op: IT’S TIME TO STEP UP
Spa City Market is a COOPERATIVELY run buyers’ club. There are no paid positions. As such, we need market VOLUNTEERS and two more MARKET MANAGERS.
CURRENTLY THERE ARE NO VOLUNTEERS FOR FUTURE MARKETS.
WITHOUT VOLUNTEERS, WE CANNOT CONTINUE TO RUN THE MARKET.
You can sign up to VOLUNTEER by clicking on the Volunteer Spot link at the top of our website.
Volunteers help set up the pickup area, distribute food to baskets, assist customers, and take down the pickup area.
Full market volunteers receive a $5 gift card and membership is extended by two months.
We need two more MARKET MANAGERS who will serve approximately once each month.
Market Manager for each market opens the market online, and closes it on Tuesday when it’s done, prints out the packing documents, and supervises their volunteers for that market. Managers rotate the responsibility for a market, so that they only supervise once a month.
If you love the fresh veggies, egg, meats, and other wonderful products offered by YOUR Spa City Co Op, please volunteer in order to keep our market open.
Contact Karen Holcomb, 501-760-3131, firstname.lastname@example.org or Nan Cameron, 501-881-4880, email@example.com.
