Vendors attending Saturday October 30th :

Blackbird Farm of Coopersville
This week at market, we are offering again our pre-selected, pre-packed bags of fresh vegetables. These bags are something akin to our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) shares. We assemble bags of our highest quality veggies based on whatever is fresh and in season for that week. In the bag, we aim to have some combination and quantity of at least six different vegetables with a combined value around $20. We also include a brief note from Farmer Greg and a farm-tested recipe. Each bag costs $15.

This week’s bag will likely contain some combination of the following: kale, cabbage, beets, carrots, potatoes, leeks, and garlic. Again, each bag will cost $15.
To order your Blackbird Farms Veggie Bag, please email us at hello.blackbirdfarms@gmail.com by noon on Thursday. We will then send you an invoice via Square. Payment can also be made via cash or check (payable to Blackbird Farms).
We will also be offering our family heirloom garlic for pre-ordered bulk sales at $12 a pound (three-pound minimum order).
In addition, we have grade-A seed garlic available for pre-order at $15 a pound.
We also plan to have many other items for walk-up sales—watch for more information in Friday’s newsletter.
Thanks so much! We’re looking forward to seeing friends old and new this Saturday!

10:00am to 11:00am
Mercy Health Lakes Village
6401 Harvey St. at US31/Pontaluna Rd.

For those new to Sweetwater, this newsletter is a list of all vendors who will be attending the market on this date. Their products & prices and contact info are listed so that you can place a preorder with them. It also gives you a chance to start making your shopping list early in the week. On Friday we put out an updated version with items added to the list that will be available for walk up purchasing.

To remind everyone about what is unique about Sweetwater, here is a link to the Sweetwater Pledge to Our Customers. This Pledge is signed by all vendors, and we stand behind it. http://www.sweetwaterlocalfoodsmarket.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/2015-final-sweetwater-pledge-to-customers-update.pdf

As always, if your time on Saturday is precious we won’t waste any of it! Shopping for the best in fresh, local & organic foods for your family is as easy as contacting the vendors with your pre-orders and stopping by the market on Saturday from 10am to 11am to pick it up! Of course, if you like to linger we’ll have plenty of things to buy without a preorder, so come on by!
Vendors attending Saturday October 23rd :

Blackbird Farm of Coopersville
This week at market, we are offering again our pre-selected, pre-packed bags of fresh vegetables. These bags are something akin to our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) shares. We assemble bags of our highest quality veggies based on whatever is fresh and in season for that week. In the bag, we aim to have some combination and quantity of at least six different vegetables with a combined value around $20. We also include a brief note from Farmer Greg and a farm-tested recipe. Each bag costs $15.
This week’s bag will likely contain some combination of the following: kale, cabbage, beets, carrots, potatoes, leeks, and garlic. Again, each bag will cost $15.
To order your Blackbird Farms Veggie Bag, please email us at hello.blackbirdfarms@gmail.com by noon on Thursday. We will then send you an invoice via Square. Payment can also be made via cash or check (payable to Blackbird Farms).
We will also be offering our family heirloom garlic for pre-ordered bulk sales at $12 a pound (three-pound minimum order).
We also plan to have many other items for walk-up sales—watch for more information in Friday’s newsletter.
Thanks so much! We’re looking forward to seeing friends old and new this Saturday!

Happy Columbus Day!
We are currently taking pre-orders for rabbit.  I have a limited number available and I will be slaughtering this coming Thursday. If you’d like one fresh, shoot me an email to reserve one.  They can be picked up on Sat. Oct. 16 at Muskegon Farmers Market, Sweetwater Local Foods Market, or by arrangement.  They dress out about 3 lbs and are $9 per lb.  They are whole carcass with heart, liver and kidneys.  If you don’t want the organs, please let me know (they are the best part and I hate to see them wasted- as in, please don’t feed them to your cat- eat them yourself!)  Each rabbit comes with a sheet directing you to how to cut it up (if you wish), cook it, and cook the organs.  Hint: don’t stew it.  I know every website everywhere suggests braising it in some sort of very flavorful and delicious liquid but… don’t.  Just don’t do it.  Grill it.  It’ll blow your mind.  Check out how they are raised here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oz8o2uh9Lkw (That video was made when I lived in Wisconsin but I still do the same thing now, but with fewer rabbits.  I downsized when I moved and started my own farm. Go figure!)

Vendors attending Saturday October 16th :

Blackbird Farm of Coopersville
This week at market, we are offering again our pre-selected, pre-packed bags of fresh vegetables. These bags are something akin to our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) shares. We assemble bags of our highest quality veggies based on whatever is fresh and in season for that week. In the bag, we aim to have some combination and quantity of at least six different vegetables with a combined value around $20. We also include a brief note from Farmer Greg and a farm-tested recipe. Each bag costs $15.
This week’s bag will likely contain some combination of the following: kale, kohlrabi, salad turnips, beets, carrots, potatoes, and garlic. Again, each bag will cost $15.
To order your Blackbird Farms Veggie Bag, please email us at hello.blackbirdfarms@gmail.com by noon on Thursday. We will then send you an invoice via Square. Payment can also be made via cash or check (payable to Blackbird Farms).
We will also be offering our family heirloom garlic for pre-ordered bulk sales at $12 a pound (three-pound minimum order).

In the bag, we aim to have some combination and quantity of at least six different vegetables with a combined value around $20. We also include a brief note from Farmer Greg and a farm-tested recipe. Each bag costs $15.
This week’s bag will likely contain some combination of the following: lettuce, kale, kohlrabi, salad turnips, carrots, potatoes, leeks, and garlic. Again, each bag will cost $15.
To order your Blackbird Farms Veggie Bag, please email us at hello.blackbirdfarms@gmail.com by noon on Thursday. We will then send you an invoice via Square. Payment can also be made via cash or check (payable to Blackbird Farms).

Sweetwater Local Foods Market

Saturday, October 2nd, 2021
10:00am to 11:00am
Mercy Health Lakes Village
6401 Harvey St. at US31/Pontaluna Rd.
October! Seeing the first maples turning color! Fall means bottling up some of the summer goodness, whether you can, dry, or freeze – and we’ll have plenty of produce for you this Saturday!

For those new to Sweetwater, this newsletter is a list of all vendors who will be attending the market on this date. Their products & prices and contact info are listed so that you can place a preorder with them. It also gives you a chance to start making your shopping list early in the week. On Friday we put out an updated version with items added to the list that will be available for walk up purchasing.

To remind everyone about what is unique about Sweetwater, here is a link to the Sweetwater Pledge to Our Customers. This Pledge is signed by all vendors, and we stand behind it. http://www.sweetwaterlocalfoodsmarket.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/2015-final-sweetwater-pledge-to-customers-update.pdf

As always, if your time on Saturday is precious we won’t waste any of it! Shopping for the best in fresh, local & organic foods for your family is as easy as contacting the vendors with your pre-orders and stopping by the market on Saturday from 10am to 11am to pick it up! Of course, if you like to linger we’ll have plenty of things to buy without a preorder, so come on by!
Vendors attending Saturday October 2nd :

Blackbird Farm of Coopersville
This week at market, we are offering again our pre-selected, pre-packed bags of fresh vegetables. These bags are something akin to our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) shares. We assemble bags of our highest quality veggies based on whatever is fresh and in season for that week. In the bag, we aim to have some combination and quantity of at least six different vegetables with a combined value around $20. We also include a brief note from Farmer Greg and a farm-tested recipe. Each bag costs $15. This week’s bag will likely contain some combination of the following: lettuce, mini-cabbages, kohlrabi, radishes, carrots, potatoes, shallots, and garlic. Again, each bag will cost $15.
To order your Blackbird Farms Veggie Bag, please email us at hello.blackbirdfarms@gmail.com by noon on Thursday. We will then send you an invoice via Square. Payment can also be made via cash or check (payable to Blackbird Farms).
We also plan to have many other items for walk-up sales—watch for more information in Friday’s newsletter.

Sweetwater Friday Update for Saturday September 25th Farmers Market


Sweetwater Local Foods Market

Saturday, September 25th, 2021
10:00am to 11:00am
Mercy Health Lakes Village
6401 Harvey St. at US31/Pontaluna Rd.
Here is your Friday Update! Blackbird Farm had a change of plans and will be at market with lots of garlic and new fall grown arugula along with their long list of garden goods. If making kimchi is in your roundhouse, Mannor Farm has the perfect Napa cabbage, in two colors! And it will be nice to welcome back Barb from the Funny Farm!

As for the weather: “The temperature went from 90 to 55 like it saw a state trooper.” Plan accordingly, and lets start stocking up for the coming cold months, no matter what today’s weather brings!

As always, if your time on Saturday is precious we won’t waste any of it! Shopping for the best in fresh, local & organic foods for your family is as easy as contacting the vendors with your pre-orders and stopping by the market on Saturday from 10am to 11am to pick it up! Of course, if you like to linger we’ll have plenty of things to buy without a preorder, so come on by!

If you’re new to the market, please see instructions at the bottom of this newsletter for more info on How to Place a Pre-Order & Pick Up at Market. We send out this Friday update email as a reminder and to list any new products.

Vendors attending Saturday September 25th :

Change of plans!
Blackbird Farms of Coopersville
It turns out that Forrest, our indispensable crew member, will be able to make it to market this Saturday after all! We should have all manner of early-fall deliciousness, including:
GARLIC: We will have lots of Farmer Greg’s family heirloom garlic, available only here at Blackbird Farms. Great flavor, long-lasting, easy-peeling, and good for anything garlic is good for.
ARUGULA: Fall-grown arugula is the best tasting arugula, in my humble opinion. Come get it while you can
MICROGREENS: We have a couple different varieties of these, but perhaps not for much longer this season.
the very last of this season’s San Marzano paste tomatoes
beets
lettuce, red and green looseleaf and green butterhead
minicabbages, green, red, and conehead
large conehead cabbages, ideal for kraut
large savoyed cabbages
Napa cabbages
broccoli
carrots
scallions
collard greens
parsley, flatleaf and curly
celery
baby leeks
radishes
sweet peppers
hot peppers
Be sure to ask Forrest about his hot sauce and vinegar of the week!
Looking forward to seeing friends old and new this Saturday!
