Attending this week’s market:

New Vendor!
Michigan’s Finest Mushrooms of Ferrysburg
Husband and wife team George & Rosanne Simikowski  recently moved to Ferrysburg from Chicago.
From George: “We grew tired of the stress of big city living. It’s always been my dream to start a mushroom farm.
When most people think of mushrooms they think of basic whites and portobello. I want to change that mindset, and introduce them to a more medicinal and culinary way to approach a new food source.
My goal is to master growing different strains and coordinating yields for a variety of tasty offerings each week. I want to grow for people who love their kitchens and want to try new products with a high priority of quality local food.
Some of the health benefits of my mushrooms are:
Shitake – vitamin B, fight cancer cells, cardiovascular disease, control blood sugar levels, reduce inflammation, boost immune system, fight obesity, boost energy levels, reduce risk of arthritis.
Oyster – naturally reduce joint pain, heart healthy – lowers risk of strokes, high in iron – prevent anemia, increased energy levels. High in protein, fibre, iron, zinc, potassium, calcium.
Not only are mushrooms good for you but they are versatile as well in stews, stir fries, baked, broiled and grilled.
They look pretty cool too!”
This week we will have:
Oyster mushrooms (fresh)
Shitake (fresh / dried)
Maitake – “hen of the woods” (dried)
I may have Almond Portobello and Winecaps if the weather cooperates.

Cultured Love of Grand Rapids
We’ll have our 5 kraut flavors for sale and sampling: All-organic ingredients, naturally fermented, and probiotic. Never cooked, raw and vegan, with no vinegar or starter culture, our Kraut is good on its own, or added to many other dishes, providing great flavor and nutrients.
· Carry Me Away – Traditional caraway kraut, as you find on a Reuben sandwich. This kraut is closest to what many grandmothers made in large crocks in their basement.
· Dillyicious – Our best-seller. Tastes like a pickle. Onion, garlic, dill, and turmeric. Our “gateway kraut” for those who say “I don’t like sauerkraut”.
· Purple Hot & Spicy – Onion, garlic and Cayenne. Hot for some, not so hot for others.
· Curryosity – We love India and Indian food. This kraut is a highly versatile addition to many dishes, or by itself.
· Root for Ginger – Our nod to Kim-chee, with similar ingredients — Carrot, radish, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Just a little heat.

Bloom Ferments of Grand Rapids
I will be at the market with bottles of ginger and growlers of lavender hibiscus kombucha. I will also be bringing product from Cultured Love.
Cultured Love of Grand Rapids
We’ll have our 5 kraut flavors for sale and sampling: All-organic ingredients, naturally fermented, and probiotic. Never cooked, raw and vegan, with no vinegar or starter culture, our Kraut is good on its own, or added to many other dishes, providing great flavor and nutrients.
· Carry Me Away – Traditional caraway kraut, as you find on a Reuben sandwich. This kraut is closest to what many grandmothers made in large crocks in their basement.
· Dillyicious – Our best-seller. Tastes like a pickle. Onion, garlic, dill, and turmeric. Our “gateway kraut” for those who say “I don’t like sauerkraut”.
· Purple Hot & Spicy – Onion, garlic and Cayenne. Hot for some, not so hot for others.
· Curryosity – We love India and Indian food. This kraut is a highly versatile addition to many dishes, or by itself.
· Root for Ginger – Our nod to Kim-chee, with similar ingredients — Carrot, radish, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Just a little heat.
We’ll also have “Good Food Good Mood” t-shirts and totes.

Never Better Naturals of Spring Lake
Your skin is like a sponge and readily soaks up most things that you place on it. Why not protect yourself externally while also protecting yourself internally?
I started making these products as a safe alternative to not-so-safe commercial products because I couldn’t find much that was high quality and chemical free at a price I could afford for my family.  Now, this quality and price (after a lot of trial and error) are available to you and your family.  We use contents that are grown and processed using earth sustainable practices, that are all chemical free, and are mostly certified Organic.  We place them in carefully selected packaging which is safe for you and can be re-used, re-cycled, or re-filled easily, instead of thrown away.  I hope that you will stop and see me this Saturday and try some of our samples of skin care, sun and bug protection, baby and pregnancy care, and herbal remedies (for pain, itch, age, germs, and many other afflictions). Refills on Bug Be Gone, Turn Back Time, and Natural Sanitizer are available at market with original packaging .
Thank you so very much,
Rachel
