The Spa City Co-op market is now open for ordering at spacity.locallygrown.net.

Please place your orders before Tuesday at 9 pm, and plan to pick up your orders at Emergent Arts on Friday from 3PM to 4:30PM. If you’re unable to pick up your order at this time please make arrangements to have your order picked up for you.
Remember to scroll all the way down and click place this order.

Don’t forget – this market has no paid positions, so we NEED VOLUNTEERS to run every market. It’s fun, you get a $5 gift card as well as extend your membership by 2 months, and you learn so much about local foods in Arkansas.
Have a great week and see you on Friday

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!

Manchester Locally Grown:  Time to Order Fresh Local Farm Products!


*




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.

From Andra Martens:

This week, Sow’s Ear Piggery pork products return to the market after a couple weeks in vacation mode. Pork chops, ground pork, stew meat, cutlets, and several other cuts are available. As always, our pork is Non-GMO, non-medicated, and free-ranged.

From Linda Reed at Dogwood Valley Greenhouse:

Yes it’s really spring. I didn’t think I’d ever be able to say that, this year! This week, many of our perennial plants are continuing to bloom from previous weeks. We welcome a few new blooms, including some of the dwarf carnations, foam flower, coral bells, pincushion flower, spiderwort, salvia, and more colors of azaleas. The ferns, especially the low Japanese Painted and the taller Ostrich, would look really great in your woodland garden.

The mints and oreganos are doing very well, and finally the thyme is filling out. Salad burnet is still thick and full, waiting to be a part of your next salad. We have a few Rosemary and Lavender plants as well, and a limited number of Stevia. Valerian, a very useful herb, can also add a tall white accent to your perennial border.

And a nice surprise: the pink Christmas cacti are back in bloom! They actually haven’t been resting for long, and I’ve been watering them right along. They’ll make great Mother’s Day gifts. (I will wrap for you.)

Don’t forget: it’s not reliably warm enough for tomato and pepper plants yet, in spite of what some of the big box stores try to tell you. In fact, I saw several dead ones in my local shop a couple days ago, and there will be more after this coming Monday’s cold night. And I’m going to throw out a forecast that we will get one more frost, right after the next round of vegetable plantings. My suggestion: wait till at least May 1, when the soil is nice and warm, allowing for good strong root growth, which is essential for healthy plants. Then get your tomato and pepper plants from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse. I will have several varieties of tomatoes and some California Wonder green bell peppers, available in about two to three weeks.

Important Ordering and Pickup Information

Ordering will be open until TUESDAY at 10 p.m., and your order will be available for pickup on THURSDAY between 4:00 and 5:30 at the pavilion across from Manchester City Schools administration building, 215 East Fort Street, Manchester.

We can also deliver your order to your home (or other location) on Friday afternoons, for a small fee, if it’s more convenient for you. If you prefer to utilize this service, please place an order for it, same as other products, selecting your delivery area. Don’t forget to give us your location address in the comments section of the order. Also please text Linda at (931) 273-9708 for specific arrangements.

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. Please encourage our local farmers by helping to spread the word about our wonderful market to everyone you know. We offer a great variety of local farm products, and our items will be in your hands in time to plan for the weekend. Wonderful local products are available for ordering from the comfort of your own computer.

More new farmers are considering joining our market, if they can expect enough sales to help pay their transportation costs. Please help us grow the market by sharing this e-mail with your friends and inviting them to give us a try. And if you haven’t ordered from Manchester Locally Grown for a while, please check out our wide variety of offerings this week. Also please let us know if we can improve our selection or scheduling in any way to better suit your needs.

Blessings,
Linda & Michael
