Welcome to another Market week!

Thanks to Grumpy Goat Experiment for the great display and snacks we enjoyed last night at pickup!!

So fun to see their many yarn textures and colors in person!! The thin crispy crackers are addicting (can’t wait til those get on the Market!!), and it was so hard to choose a soap to try when they all smell just incredible!

We’re thrilled what a good run it’s been with the Maple Syrup this winter!!

There’s a new smaller size of Maple Syrup bottled in glass this week, whether you prefer glass or need a lovely local gift!!

And 6635 StudeBaker is teaming up with McGuffey Herb and Spice Co. to offer a new class in StudeBaker’s finished summer kitchen (complete with bake oven and teaching space!) – and watch for additional baking classes being offered this Spring!!

Congratulations to our Winners!

The Winners of our Valentine’s Bouquets are

Sandy Brogden


Sue Garretson!!

Congratulations, Ladies! I’ll have your beautiful flowers for you during pickup Tuesday, 5-7pm :-)

Thank You to everyone who entered the Drawing!! Stay turned for our next Giveaway!!

Forecast is clear for Tuesday!!

Less than two hours to get those last minute orders in!!

I’ll announce the Winners of the Valentine Flowers tonight at 8pm when Market closes (YES I meant more than one Winner!! There was so much interest in them, we’re going to give away TWO of those lovely wooden flower bouquets – TWO winners will be drawn from anyone who has entered our drawing, either on the previous 3 Tuesdays at pick-up or on our website with their order!!)

Feel free to continue to enter (look under the MCLG category on The Market) until we close at 8pm… Good Luck!!

And hopefully I can have faith that the current forecast for Tuesday will come true… possible sunshine and no precipitation?! Sounds awesome right about now ;-)

And the Winner is...

The first winner in 2020 of a $10 Virtual Market gift certificate from our Refer-A-Friend program is…

Andy and Erin Luring!! Thanks for helping to spread the word about our local market!!

Remember to drop the name of the person who told you about the Virtual Market when you pick up your order, and their name will be entered in our monthly drawing for a $10 Market gift certificate!! Easy as that!!

And this Sunday is the last chance to enter the drawing for our Valentine’s Bouquet giveaway! I’ll announce the winner Sunday night so they’ll know to pick up their gorgeous wooden flowers at customer pick-up next Tuesday!! :-)

Good luck, safe travels in this lovely weather, and thank you for your continued support!!

Two Favorite Vendors are BACK!!

We are happy to have local favorite Tin Roof Mobile Food back with their Charlois beef on the Market this week!!

Be sure to check out their beloved Stew Cubes and Ribeye Steaks! Plus 4lb Soup Bones?! Who doesn’t need to make some healthful Bone Broth this time of year?!

And we’re so glad to also Welcome back Katie Bensman to our Market family!! Many of you loved her Mother Suds Soap Company products, and until she again makes her indispensable salves, she’ll be offering a variety of Produce from her beautiful homestead, Dutch Roost Farm!

For starters, check out her Grandma Bensman’s Pie Pumpkins! They’re delicious, they cook up like a dream, and of course are organically grown – be sure to save the seeds for planting!!

It’s wonderful to have you both back!! :-)

Our first Giveaway of 2020!!

Just in time for Valentine’s Day!!

Place an order with us before February 9th, then sign up on our website under the MCLG category and enter to win a lovely bouquet of wooden, handpainted roses! A gorgeous arrangement that will never wilt – perfect!!

The winner will be drawn Sunday evening February 9th, and announced here via Weblog and on our Facebook page, so you can pick up your bouquet during regular customer pick-up on Tuesday February 11th!!

The ideal gift, surprise, or treat for yourself :-)

Have a happy end to January (wow!!), and a lovely week regardless of the weather!! Just tell yourself when the wind and temps are wicked that your favorite farmers need that “good” weather to spread manure ;-)

New Produce, Pork, Plants, Cookies, and MORE!

Glad to have so many new things on the Market this week!

Tempting Blueberry Thumbprint Cookies from Honey Creek Farm! Plus she has beautiful African Violets to offer! Wow!

More Meat offerings from Phil and Matt Buehler, including Smoked Pork Chops and Beef Heart and Tongue!

New Produce offerings!!! Romaine Lettuce, Celery, Arugula, and Parsley from Green Fins, and Broccoli Microgreens from Rosy Toes!

Sadly, this is the last week for Simple Living Farm’s famous carrots :-(. Mike has them all out of the ground!!

Returning this week… Pumpkin Patch with their luscious local Honey and versatile, beautiful Beeswax!

And 6635 StudeBaker with her hearty Friendship Bread, only for a limited time!

Gotta love new items!

What’s not to love about fresh local produce and eggs IN THE WINTER?! Yep, we’re lucky :-)

Microgreen mixes from Rosy Toes Designs and Simple Living Farm, plus Goat’s Milk Soaps and Lip Balms from Grumpy Goat Experiment!!

Also added… more of those farm fresh eggs from J & S Buehler, Bair Trax’s beef from their Organic dairy cows, and Green Fins’ aquaponic lettuces!!

And we're Back!! :-)

We had such a marvelous time while we were on break, I was admittedly reluctant to get back into the swing of things tonight, until the vendors and customers began to arrive!

I missed you all :-)

Thanks for a great start to the New Year!

And just so you know, Green Fins won’t be posting any of their greens until tomorrow morning, so don’t think they’re sold out already if you get on tonight!

Be safe, stay warm when winter returns, and have a lovely week!

Hello to a New Market Year!!

Welcome to another exciting year with our local Virtual Market!

We hope everyone had a delicious and safe holiday season, and that you’re off to a contented, restful beginning to 2020!

It’s exciting to be back, especially with all our favorite products plus some great specials, including indispensable Chicken Broth 20% off!

We look forward to sharing our harvests and specialties with you, and hope to see you at pick-up soon :-)

Happy New Year!!
