Whew, what a night! Thanks to all the customers and vendors who came out and made our Fall Farmer’s Market such a successful, fun time! I love seeing everyone set up, and meeting all the new faces :-).

The Virtual Market is open for orders until 8pm Sunday!

And we’ll again be set up on December 10th for the Holiday Farmer’s Market!!

Just a heads up… We will NOT be closed this year for Thanksgiving week! We’ll stay open from now until our last Market pickup of the year on December 17th!! And we’ll be Closed for THREE weeks over the holiday season, reopening January 7th in the new year!! Can’t believe it’s time to talk about this :-)

Thank you for supporting our local Market!!!

Anyone need half a turkey?!


Had an interesting inquiry this morning – is there anyone else in the Market community interested in splitting the cost of a Thanksgiving Turkey from King’s?

We have a customer with a very small family, thus a need for only a small amount of turkey – and they thought perhaps someone else on the Market would be interested in splitting the cost of a non-GMO, local turkey with them, and having King’s split the turkey so each customer would get half?

If anyone would be interested, please let me know by emailing miamicountylocallygrown@gmail.com!

Remember you’d be picking up the FRESH turkey on Tuesday November 26th at virtual market pickup, 5-7pm!

And yes, I’ll send out a reminder for everyone who has purchased a Thanksgiving Turkey so everyone remembers to pick their’s up! That’s a tall order when many of you placed your order weeks ago!! :-)

Thanks, stay warm, and hope to see you TONIGHT at the Fall Farmer’s Market!!

Meet all your favorite vendors, 4pm to 7pm, at First Place!! 16 W. Franklin Street in Troy!!
