Market is OPEN for March 13th pickup!


*

Good evening,

The Market is open and ready for your orders. I’m excited to tell you all that we now have composting worms and worm composter bins available to purchase on the Online Market from Our Farms! How cool is that? Seeing as today is the first day of the Worm moon cycle, I think I must have worms on my mind.

We still have a wide variety of organic seeds from Southern Seed Exchange available on the Online Market!

We also have a variety of live strawberry and blueberry plants from the 4-H program here in Grayson County that you can now pre-order. Pre-orders must be placed by March 20th and payment is due upon ordering.

Good evening,

We have exciting new products on the Market this week! We now have seeds available for purchase from Southern Seed Exchange! Each packet of organic seeds is $2.50 and proceeds go to benefit the Independence Farmers Market! If you’re confused about some of the wording under the descriptions of the seeds, head over to Southern Seed Exchange to learn more!

In addition to seeds, we also have a variety of live strawberry and blueberry plants from the 4-H program here in Grayson County that you can now pre-order (plants will be ready for pick-up in the next month or so, we’ll be sure to let you know!). This is a really great way to support kids and agriculture right here in our community!

This will be the last week to order bread from Martin’s Organics. We sure will miss Sylvia’s delicious loaves of sourdough goodness! We’d like to wish Sylvia the best of luck! Although Syliva won’t be regularly baking for us anymore, she might just get the urge to bake and list her products every once in a while!

Good evening,

Time to place your order! When ordering this week, keep in mind Valentine’s Day! We have a great variety of sweet treats, but if your love doesn’t have a sweet tooth, there’s nothing like saying “I love you” with a locally grown and produced steak.

Speaking of steak, keep in mind that most of the meat listed on the Market is sold by the pound. We do it this way because meat cuts can be radically different in size. If you’d like a price on the meat you’re ordering, please feel free to contact the vendor directly for the total.

Join us for the 2nd workshop of the season February 23 from 9 am to noon at the GLC/IFM office on 108 Courthouse Street. Cost is $10 and includes light refreshments. Learn to use the handy fertilizer calculator, how to set up a worm bin for making your own compost, and planning for likely diseases and pests so you can catch things early when they are easier to control. We’ll bring our favorite tools and control measures. Space is limited so be sure to let Michelle know if you plan to attend (independencefarmersmarket@gmail.com).
