DRIVE-THROUGH Pre-Order Market
Saturday, July 11th, 2020
Limited One Hour Market: 10:00am to 11:00am
Mercy Health Lakes Village
6401 Harvey St. at US31/Pontaluna Rd.
To our Sweetwater Community:
As of July 5th MDHHS reports a total of 2517 positive cases of Covid19 and 108 deaths for our 4 county area of Muskegon, Oceana, Ottawa & Allegan. Our thoughts are with those who have lost loved ones to this virus, and with those who struggle to come back from it. And a huge THANK YOU to everyone, vendors & customers alike, for continuing to do your part to stay safe & help Michigan crush the curve!

Sweetwater will be open this Saturday for our One Hour Pre-Order Drive Through Market from 10am – 11am!
Here are the steps to take to secure your place in line this coming Saturday, July 11th:

1. Look over the list below. Each vendor has a unique deadline for when they need to receive your pre-order depending on their product. Send your pre-order to each vendor you want to order from, within their required deadlines.
2. Vendors will respond back by no later than Friday before market day with an order confirmation and an invoice that in most cases will allow you to pre-pay for your order. If a vendor is not set up to take payment online they will accept checks (preferred) or cash in a sealed envelope on market day pickup.
3. Market Day. Important! Please see the attached map with arrows indicating which way you should plan to approach the market. We have 3 sections opened now and are refining the traffic pattern plan every week!
Please plan to line up and stay in your vehicleWe will also have signs to help point you in the right direction.
4. Please note! Using a sheet of paper at least 8.5 x 11, please list all of the vendors you have orders with in black marker (or something as visible), large enough for vendors to see it clearly.  Please put your first & last name at the top of the list. Tape or hold up the list to the side window or front windshield where it will be most visible. It’s very helpful if you make two signs, one for each side, so that way vendors don’t have to cross back and forth in front of your vehicle to see your list.
5. Have your trunk, or designated area of your car ready to receive your goods. As weather warms think about bringing a cooler for frozen, refrigerated items.
6. As you drive through, each vendor will bring your order to your vehicle and place it in the trunk or other designated space, and collect payment if you have not paid in advance. Again, please have checks (preferred) or cash in a sealed envelope with your name and the name of the vendor on the outside of it.

Vendors attending Saturday July 11th

Summer Blend Gardens of Coopersville
Deadline 8pm Thursday.
This is one of our favorite weeks in the gardens because the peas are hanging on, and the green beans are coming on. Other new items: Kohlrabi, Scallions, and Dill. In the world of kale, the new kid on the block is Thousandhead Kale which is a flat leaf variety. Of course it
is not as sweet as spinach, but it is much less bitter than other kale varieties during these hot days. The heat has made things tricky and for some of the items listed below we are only projecting availability based on a strong growing week. First come, first serve . . .
Marty will respond back on all orders daily, but will give the final confirmation and pricing on Thursday night to all. Thanks a bunch!
We can accept orders by 8:00 pm on Thursday. Our email address is now sbgsweetwater@gmail.com . You will receive a confirmation email with total amount due in a timely manner. We accept credit card, cash (in a sealed envelope – your name on it, please), or check (made out to Martin Alexander).

$3 a bundle Scallions (small, but tender and sweet: 4 – 5 in a bundle)
$2 each Lettuce Heads: These will be smaller than previous weeks, but we want to get them on your table before they bolt up and lose their flavor: Red Romaine, Green Romaine, Freckles, Buttercrunch, & Bibb

Sweetwater Saturday June 27th One Hour Pre-Order Drive Through Farmers Market


Sweetwater Local Foods Market

DRIVE-THROUGH Pre-Order Market
Saturday, June 27th, 2020
Limited One Hour Market: 10:00am to 11:00am
Mercy Health Lakes Village
6401 Harvey St. at US31/Pontaluna Rd.
To our Sweetwater Community:

We continue to be grateful for your cooperation in helping make this One Hour Pre-Order Drive Up Market work! Please know that we are having many discussions amongst ourselves about how we can bring a more traditional Farmers Market vibe back while keeping everyone as safe as possible. We urge you all to practice safe social distancing and wear masks. For current data on numbers of Corona virus cases in Muskegon: https://www.co.muskegon.mi.us/1611/Coronavirus
Our current Covid19 policy is in line with other area farmers markets, and our vendors will be wearing face masks as they bring your products to your vehicles. Please note: While we do not ask you to wear a mask, there are vulnerable customers and vendors who need to remind everyone that staying in your car is helping to keep all of us safe!

Here are the steps to take to secure your place in line this coming Saturday, June 27th:

1. Look over the list below. Each vendor has a unique deadline for when they need to receive your pre-order depending on their product. Send your pre-order to each vendor you want to order from, within their required deadlines.
2. Vendors will respond back by no later than Friday before market day with an order confirmation and an invoice that in most cases will allow you to pre-pay for your order. If a vendor is not set up to take payment online they will accept checks (preferred) or cash in a sealed envelope on market day pickup.
3. Market Day. Important! Please see the attached map with arrows indicating which way you should plan to approach the market. We have 3 sections opened now and are refining the traffic pattern plan every week!
Please plan to line up and stay in your vehicleWe will also have signs to help point you in the right direction.
4. Please note! Using a sheet of paper at least 8.5 x 11, please list all of the vendors you have orders with in black marker (or something as visible), large enough for vendors to see it clearly.  Please put your first & last name at the top of the list. Tape or hold up the list to the side window or front windshield where it will be most visible. It’s very helpful if you make two signs, one for each side, so that way vendors don’t have to cross back and forth in front of your vehicle to see your list.
5. Have your trunk, or designated area of your car ready to receive your goods. As weather warms think about bringing a cooler for frozen, refrigerated items.
6. As you drive through, each vendor will bring your order to your vehicle and place it in the trunk or other designated space, and collect payment if you have not paid in advance. Again, please have checks (preferred) or cash in a sealed envelope with your name and the name of the vendor on the outside of it.

Sweetwater Saturday June 20 One Hour Pre-Order Drive Through Farmers Market


Sweetwater Local Foods Market

DRIVE-THROUGH Pre-Order Market
Saturday, June 20th, 2020
Limited One Hour Market: 10:00am to 11:00am
Mercy Health Lakes Village
6401 Harvey St. at US31/Pontaluna Rd.
To our Sweetwater Community:
We continue to be grateful for your cooperation in helping make this One Hour Pre-Order Drive Up Market work! We urge you all to practice safe social distancing and wear masks. For current data on numbers of Corona virus cases in Muskegon: https://www.co.muskegon.mi.us/1611/Coronavirus
Our current Covid19 policy is in line with other area farmers markets, and our vendors will be wearing face masks as they bring your products to your vehicles. Please note: While we do not ask you to wear a mask, there are vulnerable customers and vendors who need to remind everyone that staying in your car is helping to keep all of us safe!

Here are the steps to take to secure your place in line this coming Saturday, June 20th:

1. Look over the list below. Each vendor has a unique deadline for when they need to receive your pre-order depending on their product. Send your pre-order to each vendor you want to order from, within their required deadlines.
2. Vendors will respond back by no later than Friday before market day with an order confirmation and an invoice that in most cases will allow you to pre-pay for your order. If a vendor is not set up to take payment online they will accept checks (preferred) or cash in a sealed envelope on market day pickup.
3. Market Day. Important! Please see the attached map with arrows indicating which way you should plan to approach the market. We have 3 sections opened now and are refining the traffic pattern plan every week!
Please plan to line up and stay in your vehicleWe will also have signs to help point you in the right direction.
4. Please note! Using a sheet of paper at least 8.5 x 11, please list all of the vendors you have orders with in black marker (or something as visible), large enough for vendors to see it clearly.  Please put your first & last name at the top of the list. Tape or hold up the list to the side window or front windshield where it will be most visible. It’s very helpful if you make two signs, one for each side, so that way vendors don’t have to cross back and forth in front of your vehicle to see your list.
5. Have your trunk, or designated area of your car ready to receive your goods. As weather warms think about bringing a cooler for frozen, refrigerated items.
6. As you drive through, each vendor will bring your order to your vehicle and place it in the trunk or other designated space, and collect payment if you have not paid in advance. Again, please have checks (preferred) or cash in a sealed envelope with your name and the name of the vendor on the outside of it.

Limited One Hour Market: 10:00am to 11:00am
Mercy Health Lakes Village
6401 Harvey St. at US31/Pontaluna Rd.
To our Sweetwater Community:
It seems like all of our efforts to crush the curve may be working here in Muskegon! As a reminder that the virus is still with us, the MCHD reports 696 positive cases & 39 deaths.We continue to be grateful for your cooperation in helping make this One Hour Pre-Order Drive Up Market work! Like all area farmers markets we are requiring all vendors to wear masks and practice social distancing.

If you have missed pre-order deadlines or forgot to order an item,  beginning this Friday we will send an additional Market Update newsletter with products that are still available for sale &  at Saturday’s market. This will help farmers who have extra veggies they didn’t have at Monday’s newsletter deadline and also vendors who have limited amounts of a few items. Watch for it this Friday!

Thanks to all who answered the survey! It would seem the majority of you want to continue with the convenience and safety of the drive through market. As the summer progresses we can always add more time, but for now we will keep the operation going as a one hour pre-order market.

Please note: There are vulnerable customers and vendors who need to remind everyone that staying in your car is helping to keep all of us safe!


Here are the steps to take to secure your place in line this coming Saturday, June 13th:

1. Look over the list below. Each vendor has a unique deadline for when they need to receive your pre-order depending on their product. Send your pre-order to each vendor you want to order from, within their required deadlines.

If a vendor is not set up to take payment online they will accept checks (preferred) or cash in a sealed envelope on market day pickup.
3. Market Day. Important! Please see the attached map with arrows indicating which way you should plan to approach the market. We have 3 sections opened now and are refining the traffic pattern plan every week!
Please plan to line up and stay in your vehicleWe will also have signs to help point you in the right direction.
4. Please note! Using a sheet of paper at least 8.5 x 11, please list all of the vendors you have orders with in black marker (or something as visible), large enough for vendors to see it clearly.  Please put your first & last name at the top of the list. Tape or hold up the list to the side window or front windshield where it will be most visible. It’s very helpful if you make two signs, one for each side, so that way vendors don’t have to cross back and forth in front of your vehicle to see your list.

Sweetwater Saturday June 6th One Hour 10 – 11 Drive Through Pre-Order Farmers Market

Sweetwater Local Foods Market
DRIVE-THROUGH Pre-Order Market
Saturday, June 6th, 2020
Limited One Hour Market: 10:00am to 11:00am
Mercy Health Lakes Village
6401 Harvey St. at US31/Pontaluna Rd.
To our Sweetwater Community:
It’s hard to believe it’s been 12 weeks now since the virus came to town and changed all of our lives. Thank you all for your cooperation in helping make this One Hour Pre-Order Drive Up Market work! Like all area farmers markets we are now requiring all vendors to wear masks and practice social distancing.

We would like to know how you feel the market is going! What can we do to improve your market experience? Please take a second and give us your feedback here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GYTBBNL

If you are new to the market please read the directions below and see the map.

Here are the steps to take to secure your place in line this coming Saturday, June 6th:

1. Look over the list below. Each vendor has a unique deadline for when they need to receive your pre-order depending on their product. Send your pre-order to each vendor you want to order from, within their required deadlines.
2. Vendors will respond back by no later than Friday before market day with an order confirmation and an invoice that in most cases will allow you to pre-pay for your order. If a vendor is not set up to take payment online they will accept checks (preferred) or cash in a sealed envelope on market day pickup.
3. Market Day. Important! Please see the attached map with arrows indicating which way you should plan to approach the market. We have 3 sections opened now and are refining the traffic pattern plan every week!
Please plan to line up and stay in your vehicleWe will also have signs to help point you in the right direction.
4. Please note! Using a sheet of paper at least 8.5 x 11, please list all of the vendors you have orders with in black marker (or something as visible), large enough for vendors to see it clearly.  Please put your first & last name at the top of the list. Tape or hold up the list to the side window or front windshield where it will be most visible. It’s very helpful if you make two signs, one for each side, so that way vendors don’t have to cross back and forth in front of your vehicle to see your list.
5. Have your trunk, or designated area of your car ready to receive your goods. As weather warms (if it ever does) think about bringing a cooler for frozen, refrigerated items.
6. As you drive through, each vendor will bring your order to your vehicle and place it in the trunk or other designated space, and collect payment if you have not paid in advance. Again, please have checks (preferred) or cash in a sealed envelope with your name and the name of the vendor on the outside of it.

We will accept orders until noon on Friday. Friday afternoon we will get everyone their total. If you don’t hear from me by 5pm, please contact me. We accept cash or check payable to Pine Row Farm.
Please note a variety of updates and new items that follow.
100% grass fed beef:

Suet $1/#
Tongue $5.50/#
Soup bones $2/#
Roasts $6.50/#
Ground beef: The processor has mixed our round and sirloin into this batch unfortunately. We are advertising it at $7.50/# to not lose as much money off their error.
Pasture has finally taken off after the repeated hard freezes of early May. We have been busy moving the three different groups through the summer lots. The calves this year are doing a great job of learning to “take the gate”. It makes the process so much easier for everyone involved!
Eggs! 
We have  duck and goose eggs for sale. Our poultry is free range and has certified organic feed available from neighboring Heritage Organics. Duck eggs are $8/ dozen, and goose eggs are $2 each, 2 for $3, or $18 per dozen.

We are pleased to announce that we hived 9 additional bee colonies Saturday evening. All of our hives are working hard in spite of the windy conditions.
Fall Whole Broiler Chicken 
We haven’t done these for sale since the first year we started selling at Sweetwater. We were concerned about getting chicks, but 2 weeks ago our order of 70 came through, making us feel confident it’s realistic. These will be whole, bagged, young chickens raised on certified organic feed from Heritage Organics. We will take orders, then once chicks arrive, deposits are due, with the balance due at delivery. Please include your phone number with orders. We will assess demand and decide if we move forward with these.
Fall Pork
We haven’t raised pork for sale since 2010. We have located feeders for late June. They will be raised on certified organic feed from Heritage Organics, and sold only by halves. Please include your phone number with orders.
We hope you and your families are all doing well, and remain grateful for your commitment to supporting local, small farms,

Sweetwater Saturday May 30th One Hour Drive Through Pre-Order Farmers Market

Sweetwater Local Foods Market
DRIVE-THROUGH Pre-Order Market
Saturday, May 30th, 2020
Limited One Hour Market: 10:00am to 11:00am
Mercy Health Lakes Village
6401 Harvey St. at US31/Pontaluna Rd.
To our Sweetwater Community:
Thank you all for your cooperation in helping make this One Hour Pre-Order Drive Up Market work! With over 590 positive cases of Covid19 and 30 deaths in our community it is a sobering reminder that we must continue to do everything we can to keep all of us safe and still enjoy fresh local foods. Like all area farmers markets we are now requiring all vendors to wear masks.If you are new to the market please read the directions below and see the map.

Here are the steps to take to secure your place in line this coming Saturday, May 30th:

1. Look over the list below. Each vendor has a unique deadline for when they need to receive your pre-order depending on their product. Send your pre-order to each vendor you want to order from, within their required deadlines.
2. Vendors will respond back by no later than Friday before market day with an order confirmation and an invoice that in most cases will allow you to pre-pay for your order. If a vendor is not set up to take payment online they will accept checks (preferred) or cash in a sealed envelope on market day pickup.
3. Market Day. Important! Please see the attached map with arrows indicating which way you should plan to approach the market. We have 3 sections opened now and are refining the traffic pattern plan every week!
Please plan to line up and stay in your vehicleWe will also have signs to help point you in the right direction.
4. Please note! Using a sheet of paper at least 8.5 x 11, please list all of the vendors you have orders with in black marker (or something as visible), large enough for vendors to see it clearly.  Please put your first & last name at the top of the list. Tape or hold up the list to the side window or front windshield where it will be most visible. It’s very helpful if you make two signs, one for each side, so that way vendors don’t have to cross back and forth in front of your vehicle to see your list.
5. Have your trunk, or designated area of your car ready to receive your goods. As weather warms (if it ever does) think about bringing a cooler for frozen, refrigerated items.
6. As you drive through, each vendor will bring your order to your vehicle and place it in the trunk or other designated space, and collect payment if you have not paid in advance. Again, please have checks (preferred) or cash in a sealed envelope with your name and the name of the vendor on the outside of it.

Pine Row Farm of Rothbury
Hello,
We will accept orders until noon on Friday. Friday afternoon we will get everyone their total. If you don’t hear from me by 5pm, please contact me. We accept cash or check payable to Pine Row Farm.
Please note a variety of new items that follow.
100% grass fed beef:
Shank $5/#
Heart $4/#
Suet $1/#
Tongue $5.50/#
NY strip $13.50/#
Roasts $6.50/#
Ground beef: The processor has mixed our round and sirloin into this batch unfortunately. We are advertising it at $7.50/# to not loose as much money off their error.
Eggs! 
We have  duck and goose eggs for sale. Our poultry is free range and has certified organic feed available from neighboring Heritage Organics. Duck eggs are $8/ dozen, and goose eggs are $2 each, 2 for $3, or $18 per dozen.
Honey 
We have the following honey, in plastic squeeze bottles:
12 oz bear $6
1# raw $8
2# $12
We are pleased to announce that we have purchased 8 additional hives, scheduled to arrive this week, that will hopefully increase our supply of honey this fall.
Fall Whole Broiler Chicken 
We haven’t done these for sale since the first year we started selling at Sweetwater. We were concerned about getting chicks, but 2 weeks ago our order of 70 came through, making us feel confident it’s realistic. These will be whole, bagged, young chickens raised on certified organic feed from Heritage Organics. We will take orders, then once chicks arrive, deposits are due, with the balance due at delivery. Please include your phone number with orders. We will assess demand and decide if we move forward with these.
Fall Pork
We haven’t raised pork for sale since 2010. We have located feeders for late June. They will be raised on certified organic feed from Heritage Organics, and sold only by halves. Please include your phone number with orders.
We are excited to announce that we have also paid the deposit for our Idaho Pasture Pig breeding stock that we’re on a waiting list for. We are tentatively scheduled to pick them up in October. We are excited to offer them, born and raised on the farm, by halves only, sometime in 2021.
We hope you and your families are all doing well, and remain grateful for your commitment to supporting local, small farms,

To our Sweetwater Community:
Thank you all for your cooperation in helping make this One Hour Pre-Order Drive Up Market work! With over 486 positive cases of Covid19 and 23 deaths in our community we are trying to do everything we can to keep all of us safe and still enjoy fresh local foods. Like all area farmers markets we are now requiring all vendors to wear masks. If you are new to the market please read the directions below and see the map.Here are the steps to take to secure your place in line this coming Saturday, May 23rd:

1. Look over the list below. Each vendor has a unique deadline for when they need to receive your pre-order depending on their product. Send your pre-order to each vendor you want to order from, within their required deadlines.
2. Vendors will respond back by no later than Friday before market day with an order confirmation and an invoice that in most cases will allow you to pre-pay for your order. If a vendor is not set up to take payment online they will accept checks (preferred) or cash in a sealed envelope on market day pickup.
3. Market Day. Important! Please see the attached map with arrows indicating which way you should plan to approach the market.
Please plan to line up and stay in your vehicleWe will also have signs to help point you in the right direction.
4. Please note! Using a sheet of paper at least 8.5 x 11, please list all of the vendors you have orders with in black marker (or something as visible), large enough for vendors to see it clearly.  Please put your first & last name at the top of the list. Tape or hold up the list to the side window or front windshield where it will be most visible. It’s very helpful if you make two signs, one for each side, so that way vendors don’t have to cross back and forth in front of your vehicle to see your list.
5. Have your trunk, or designated area of your car ready to receive your goods. As weather warms (if it ever does) think about bringing a cooler for frozen, refrigerated items.
6. As you drive through, each vendor will bring your order to your vehicle and place it in the trunk or other designated space, and collect payment if you have not paid in advance. Again, please have checks (preferred) or cash in a sealed envelope with your name and the name of the vendor on the outside of it.

Sweetwater Saturday May 9th One Hour Drive Through Pre-Order Farmers Market

Sweetwater Local Foods Market
DRIVE-THROUGH Pre-Order Market
Saturday, May 9th, 2020
Limited One Hour Market: 10:00am to 11:00am
Mercy Health Lakes Village
6401 Harvey St. at US31/Pontaluna Rd.
To our Sweetwater Community:
Thank you all for your cooperation in helping make this One Hour Pre-Order Drive Up Market work! With over 300 positive cases of Covid19 in our community we are trying to do everything we can to keep all of us safe and still enjoy fresh local foods. If you are new to the market please read the directions below and see the map.

Here are the steps to take to secure your place in line this coming Saturday, May 9th:

1. Look over the list below. Each vendor has a unique deadline for when they need to receive your pre-order depending on their product. Send your pre-order to each vendor you want to order from, within their required deadlines.
2. Vendors will respond back by no later than Friday before market day with an order confirmation and an invoice that in most cases will allow you to pre-pay for your order. If a vendor is not set up to take payment online they will accept checks (preferred) or cash in a sealed envelope on market day pickup.
3. Market Day. Important! Please see the attached map with arrows indicating which way you should plan to approach the market.
Please plan to line up and stay in your vehicleWe will also have signs to help point you in the right direction.
4. Please note! Using a sheet of paper at least 8.5 x 11, please list all of the vendors you have orders with in black marker (or something as visible), large enough for vendors to see it clearly.  Please put your first & last name at the top of the list. Tape or hold up the list to the side window or front windshield where it will be most visible. It’s very helpful if you make two signs, one for each side, so that way vendors don’t have to cross back and forth in front of your vehicle to see your list.
5. Have your trunk, or designated area of your car ready to receive your goods. As weather warms (if it ever does) think about bringing a cooler for frozen, refrigerated items.
6. As you drive through, each vendor will bring your order to your vehicle and place it in the trunk or other designated space, and collect payment if you have not paid in advance. Again, please have checks (preferred) or cash in a sealed envelope with your name and the name of the vendor on the outside of it.
