GFM :  While Mother Nature Seems Confused, Our Vendors Are Ready!


As we begin our new week and prepare to open the online market, we have some thoughts to share with you all. This wild Spring weather will challenge us, but we will push onward. Our GFM online and physical market customers want fresh produce and locally-produced crafts. Our participating growers and crafters are dedicated to delivering on your expectations!

More Wacky Weather From Mother Nature

Flashback about one month ago and we posted a blog on this very site talking about Mother Nature’s wild tricks. Spring one day, Winter the next, Spring again, ooops— here’s Winter. Well sadly my friends, we’ve been duped again. Just about an hour prior to my writing this update, I let the dog out only to get pelted by sleet and freezing rain.

Alas, despite the whims of Mother Nature, our potatoes, luffas, garlic, swiss chard and more are already in the ground. So, we’re hoping and praying we get back to warm weather and stay with it until market opening day on May 12th.

*is the wild weather affecting your Spring garden plans? Feel free to share your story with us. Email: greenevillefarmersmarket@gmail.com and, with your permission, we’ll share your story with our customers in the weeks to come.

Our market customers are awaiting your talent, craft, or produce!

We touched on this last week, but it is still on our hearts. When you see the joy of a farmer’s market customer coming up to your table and smiling as they exchange their hard-earned money for the produce you’ve sweated and toiled to produce on your land, it’s a glorious feeling. Farmer’s markets create win-win situations.

Our question for you is this: What good, skill, or service are you holding back from the Greenville community? We’re actively seeking new vendors, crafters, and teachers who can provide workshops at our market this year. Please, reach out to Judy Shelton @ 552-3023 if you have any questions about becoming a vendor, or about providing a workshop this season.

Is your small garden producing an excess of some crop every season? Are you spending a lot of time canning, preserving and drying your excess? Well, our market customers might be eagerly searching for that crop you produce. If you don’t step up and become a vendor, they may never get what they’re after. Help us bring an abundance and a variety to our wonderful Greeneville fresh produce buyers this season.

Become a vendor on our online market today as well!


We wish you all the best this week and Spring gets back on her feet and tries to stand tall against the last blows of Winter. Are your crops in the ground? Are you taking all the steps required to ensure a plentiful and abundant harvest this year? Get out there sow, so that you may reap in season!

Recipes

Black Bean Soup

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons chili powder

1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 pinch black pepper
4 cups vegetable broth
4 (15 ounce) cans black beans
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn
1 (14.5 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1 reel Heritage Farm Kielbasa browned

DIRECTIONS

Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Saute onion, celery, carrots and garlic for 5 minutes. Season with chili powder, cumin, and black pepper; cook for 1 minute. Stir in vegetable broth, 2 cans of beans, and corn. Bring to a boil.
Meanwhile, in a food processor or blender, process remaining 2 cans beans and tomatoes until smooth. Stir into boiling soup mixture, reduce heat to medium, and simmer for 15 minutes.
Chop and add cooked kielbasa as desired.

Beet Soup

“Beet greens and spring veggies make a hearty soup in this traditional Polish recipe.”
Ingredients
1 1/4 pounds beets with greens attached
6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 leeks, white and light green parts only, chopped and washed
1/2 pound celery root, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 cup 1/2-inch cubed carrots
1/4 pound parsnips, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
3 cups 1/2-inch cubed boiling potatoes

1 tablespoon white sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/3 cup sour cream
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, or to taste
6 hard-boiled eggs, quartered lengthwise

PREPARATION
Trim greens and stems from beets. Thoroughly wash and chop greens and stems. Peel and cut beets into 1/2-inch cubes.
Bring beets, chicken broth, leeks, celery root, carrots, and parsnips to a boil in a large pot. Add potatoes, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until vegetables are tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir beet greens and stems into soup and simmer until greens and stems are tender, about 5 minutes. Mix sugar, lemon juice, and salt into soup.
Stir sour cream and flour together in a bowl until smooth and thickened. Whisk 1 cup soup into sour cream mixture until smooth; pour sour cream mixture into soup and stir. Simmer soup until thickened slightly, about 1 minute. Add dill and remove pot from heat. Ladle soup into serving bowls and arrange 4 egg quarters in each bowl.

We preach all the time about size matters and the following article gives you yet another GREAT example of why to choose small and local….200,000,000 eggs under one roof sold under countless fake farms!!!! Check it out here Salmonella Outbreak

SIZE MATTERS!!!

Please support your local, small scale, non-soy/non-gmo, pasture raised, beyond organic and customer driven family farmers!! Every day the struggle to survive as a small independent family farm gets harder and harder for less and less return. Amazon, Whole Foods, WalMart, Trader Joe’s, Publix, Kroger, Fresh Market and on and on pull out all the stops (and most of the truth) to continue to pull market share away from small family farmers!! There marketing budgets are HUGE and they are relentless!! Most of the time they make you feel like you’re supporting farms like us but it JUST AIN’T SO!!!! More often than not it is a made up farm and story just to market you a product that has no real “farm” behind it.It’s the same old factory farmed food with a different picture and/or story to make you feel good. We need you now more than ever.
BUY LOCAL. BUY FROM SMALL FARMS. LIVE LARGE!

The Wednesday Market:  Don't Miss Your Chance to Order!


Good morning.

We don’t want you to miss your chance to order! And not many of you have placed orders yet. Maybe because this week is spring break for some of us and people are out of town? Or, maybe it’s because it is COLD this morning, and we just aren’t wake yet? Anyway, this is a short reminder that The Wednesday Market is open until 10 p.m. this evening. Check the website for this week’s product offerings. Here is the link:
https://wednesdaymarket.locallygrown.net/market

Have a great Monday everyone. And if you go out today, take a jacket – you’ll need one.

See you at the Market.
