Sad news.
We’ve lost a good friend this week. If you knew Amy Oak you knew she was a huge supporter of our market, its values and most of all, the farmers. She was at our very first market in July of 2005 and almost every Saturday after that. She will be missed, deeply.  Her obit is here: https://pages.giveforward.com/medical/page-ltq8b64/
Services are Sunday at the Muskegon ISD, 630 Harvey St. 2-5pm with fellowship after.

am a Certified Nutritionist, Holistic Health Practitioner and Herbalist. I am available

my juices. ( I also teach juicing classes!)

NEW THIS WEEK! DRIED HERBS all season long we dry herbs at the peak of freshness and store them to be processed.  The gardens have slowed enough that we have begun to cut and sift all these delicious herbs.  When buying directly from the grower, you know your are getting the herb it is labeled as, and best of all, you are getting the freshest, highest quality dried herb.  Most herbs sold commercially are years old.

Please join us is acknowledging Maple Moon’s October Customer of the Month, Sarah Aebig.  It is such an honor when another farmer get their food from us.  Sarah gets vegetables from us regularly, often choosing to get whatever is left at the end of market.  We are so grateful for her support, and we love that our exchanges are simply trading products from our farms.  These are the relationships that build healthy communities.  Thank you, Sarah and family!
This week we are bringing:
BABY GINGER
BABY TURMERIC
Ginger and turmeric are tropical plants and it is a real treat to have them locally grown.  Unlike commercially grown ginger, this is the tender and delicate first year growth. No need for peeling, and no stringy flesh.  Most ginger sold in the US is imported from China and Peru (leaving a huge carbon footprint), and conventionally grown, often with questionable growing practices.  Like a lot of produce, ginger and turmeric are irradiated and fumigated before entering the US.  We are excited to offer locally grown, certified organic ginger and turmeric.
