Southern Fork Farm Weights and Prices

Good morning,

Quick update for all of you Southern Fork Farm customers this week. The prices are listed by the pound and an estimated weight. Sean won’t have exact prices until he gets them back from his processor on Wednesday. You will receive an e-mail from Southern Fork later this week with your actual prices and I will adjust them on your orders. Please let me know if you have any questions. You may also contact Sean at Southern Fork Farm directly by e-mail at southernforkfarm@gmail.com.

On a different note, thank you all so much for supporting the Market! It’s really great to be a part of a community that supports its friends and neighbors. Together we are doing great things!

Good morning,

Be sure to place your Online Market order by 8 pm TONIGHT! There is still a lot of produce available, help your self and the farmers by ordering fresh, healthy vegetables this week!

Be sure to check out the “Virtual Fiber Day” while you’re at it. This Friday would have been our first Market in Town Park, help support our vendors if you can and remember Mother’s Day is on Sunday!

One more thing, we’ve also updated our seeds and we have a lot of live plants available if you are in the mood to start that garden we’ve all been thinking about.

Good evening,

We had another great Market tonight, thank you to everyone who participated!

Barbara Moncrief has sewn some beautiful masks and donated them to the Farmers Market! Thank you Barbara! If you are in need of a mask, let us know on Friday when you pick up your order.

We have some new vendors with products available this week, welcome Simple Creek Farm, The Cowgirl Way and Pendle Alpacas!

To those that are new to the Market, you can always place more than one order. Sometimes our vendors do not list their products when the Market opens on Friday night. It’s totally fine to check back throughout the week and place multiple orders. Everything will be ready for your scheduled pickup time on Friday.

Good evening,

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Market today! We were pleased with how smoothly our new setup ran, and we hope you were too!

Please remember to schedule an appointment time to pick up your order using this link Calendy.

Honestly, I was amazed at how punctual all of you were, thank you! I will input your pickup times as they go through to make sure your orders are being processed this week. I apologize to the few who’s orders did not process. This is a learning curve for all of us and we really appreciate the continued support.

Remember, our goal is to keep us all safe and healthy. Please let us know immediately if you need to cancel your order due to illness.

We’re here to help if you have any questions. If you haven’t taken part in our new system, please read below.

Here is how the Market Works:

The Online Market picked up is now on Friday from 2-6pm. By appointment. The Market will open for orders Friday at 8pm and close Wednesday at 8pm.

You will order as usual, but now you will PAY On-line. You may want to strengthen your account password, although the ordering process will take you to a secure server. You may pay by credit card or you can estimate your monthly shopping and send a check payable to the Independence Farmers Market that will be deposited in your account and your credit will be reduced as you shop. A similar system will be set up for SNAP and senior coupon users, please contact Michelle for assistance. 276-655-4045 or 276-768-0597. New customers are welcome.

All orders must be placed using the On-line Market. If you have difficulty creating an account or have limited internet or computer skills, please call Michelle at 276-655-4045 or 276-768-0597 to place orders for you during the regular ordering period.

Please schedule a pick up time. We are scheduling 3 customers every 15 minutes. Please pick an alternate time if your first choice is already full. Your bin will be ready on a table at curbside. Please let staff move away from the table BEFORE you exit your car. Please remove your products and leave the box. Be sure to bring a cooler for perishable items and a bag if you need it for the rest of your order.

Thank you for supporting the Independence Farmers Market!
