Sweetwater What’s New at the Market Saturday November 16th

Please note: The market is CLOSED the Saturday following Thanksgiving, November 30th. For those Christmas shopping, please favor your small & local businesses this year! 

Attending this week’s market: 

Shady Side Farm of Holland
*We accept debit/credit cards!
Please note: This will be our last visit to Sweetwater until after the Christmas Kerstmarkt in Holland which runs from Nov 23 to Dec 14th!
I will have dryer balls and an assortment of mittens and hats.
We will have along a small assortment of heirloom, certified organic beans. Due to spring and fall weather conditions beyond our control, our bean harvest was very poor this year. We will not be selling any heirlooms in bulk quantities and the price is a little higher than normal. We still have a good amount of Black Turtle beans from last year’s harvest, and those are available in bulk amounts at a discount. Please email to preorder bulk. Thanks for understanding.
We will also have corn meal and grits/polenta along to market.
And we will be bringing our grass-fed lamb bratwurst. We also have a few brat/summer sausage 1/4-lamb bundles that we will bring along if you’d like to buy in bulk.

Blackbird Farm of Coopersville
This early cold snap has caught us a little off guard, I have to say. While we have completed all our “mission critical” fall tasks, many jobs still lie under the snow, as yet undone. And this weather places a bunch of question marks in Friday’s harvest docket as well. I am reasonably confident that our cold-hardy field crops have come through the arctic freeze okay, but I won’t know for sure until things thaw out. So consider this week’s market list an exercise in hopeful thinking!
This week at market we will likely be bringing:
Toscano kale
head lettuce, red and green, butterhead and looseleaf
microgreens (potentially)
cabbages, full size and mini
broccoli
Brussels sprouts
potatoes, several varieties
horseradish (possibly)
leeks
onions
shallots
garlic, two varieties
We will also have the last of this season’s ginger and turmeric harvest.
Looking forward to seeing friends old and new this weekend!

Blackbird Farm of Coopersville
Last Saturday provided us with enough of a break in the weather for us to plant our garlic crop for next season–the final mission-critical task of the year. And just in time, too, given the turn the weather has taken this week. Soon the focus of the farm turns inward, though for now there is still plenty of food in the fields, root cellar, and hoophouse for us to enjoy.
This week we will likely be bringing:
head lettuce
microgreens
kale, full size and baby
cabbages, full size and mini
cauliflower
broccoli
kohlrabi
turnips
carrots
potatoes, four varieties
sunchokes
horseradish
scallions
leeks
onions, red and yellow
shallots
garlic, two varieties
We will also have premium seed garlic available–it’s not too late for you to plant your own crop!
Additionally, we will have very limited quantities of fresh, farm-grown ginger and turmeric.
Looking forward to seeing friends new and old on Saturday!

This week I’ll bring Aloe Vera plants for $3.00 each. Did you know NASA studied the aloe vera and discovered it is one of the most useful indoor plants we have because it helps to remove harmful pollutants known as VOCs from the air, takes up carbon dioxide, and provides abundant oxygen back into the air around it. It’s a succulent, so it’s easy to maintain and doesn’t require much water at all.
I’ll also have seasonal goodies as well as the usual favorites like teas, vinegars, honeys, herbal extracts and completely toxin free body care products.
Using local ingredients wildcrafted with care or organically grown.
