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

Manchester Locally Grown market

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!

Did you know that by ordering on the locallygrown market, you are virtually assured of receiving the “cream of the crop” from each farmer? You will receive the best products picked and made with pride especially for YOU! You can’t get any fresher and higher quality than that! Thank you for supporting your local farmers and small businessmen and women.

The market is open as usual, and 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.”

Farm News of the Week

Full Circle Candles has joined our market. Debbie Blinder writes:

I loved burning candles in the home but realized the candles I bought had bad elements that effected my family’s health, such as cheap fragrances, color dyes, and lead wicks. I experimented and created a healthier candle for my home.

All of Full Circle Candles are made with much detail and positive energy. I love to give a special name to each candle and add a special, positive and fun charm for the icing on the cake. All the candles are made with soy wax (and we do have beeswax candles too!) All fragrances used are GMO, Dye, Phthalate and Animal Cruelty Free. Many fragrances are also infused with essential oils. They will burn even and smell amazing for your home. Like aromatherapy!

Debbie has added a good selection of her products to the market:

(Top L to R): Banana Bread, English Garden, Leather, Orange Chili Pepper.
(Bottom L to R): Peppermint Eucalyptus, Pipe Smoke, Red Currant, Bamboo.

Casey Family Farm is on vacation mode this week, but will see us again next week.

Flying S Farms has added several seasonal flavors of Friendship Bread:

(Clockwise from upper left): Lemon Poppyseed, Banana Pecan, Apple Spice, Lemon Blueberry.

We are glad to have Erdmann Farm vegetables back this week. John writes:
I am back for the next two weeks. I should have listed tomatoes, peppers, pumpkins and radishes.

(Clockwise from upper left): Tomato “Better Bush”, Pepper “Islander”, Radishes “Champion”, Long Island Cheese Pumpkin.

Elaine from Weaver Farms will be at market on Thursday with a display of pumpkins, as well as some of her delicious sausage and ground beef. Come visit with one of our farmers and take home some goodies! All Weaver products are available for order as well.

Assorted pumpkins (prices on the market list), Sausage, Ground Beef.

News from Solace Farm:
We have added 2 new versions of a new grassfed tallow body balm and salve, one that is half tallow, and one that is 90% tallow. We’ve been using tallow as a moisturizer for about a year now, and we really love it! The half-tallow balm is almost identical to our classic body balm that I’ve been making for years now, with shea and cocoa butters as well as oils and always-local beeswax, and the tallow salve is a little creamier, with just enough liquid shea oil to make it scoopable. We like this one the best, it is amazingly non-greasy/oily, and soaks right in, moisturizing for hours! We’ve also updated the existing solid lotion/body balm selection, discounting a few fragrances to make room for the new tallow balms as well as some new scents coming soon.

Clockwise from upper left: Grassfed Tallow Salve; Grassfed Tallow Balm; Sunflower Body Balm Closeout; Orange, Basil, & Ginger Body Balm CLoseout.

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!

Take me to Heirloom Living Market.

All Cow Milk and Egg Orders from Cedar Rock MUST be in by 8:00pm SUNDAY!!

If you miss this deadline, you miss your milk next week. It is way to cumbersome to keep track of late orders and neither Sam or I have the time to do it. In the past, I had once said it was alright to text Sam, but that created an ‘administrative nightmare’ for me! I work a full time job in addition to the Market. Please get your orders in on time! Thank you for your cooperation!

Take me to Heirloom Living Market.
