DRIVE-THROUGH Pre-Order 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 Pre-Order Drive Up Market work! Important: We’re learning that if we are asking customers to line up and wait in line, the only way this works is to be PRE-ORDER ONLY. If you have not placed a pre-order by the required deadlines of each vendor, please go ahead and place your order and you will be placed on the list for the next week’s market.

Important! Please see the attached map with arrows indicating which way you should plan to approach the market.

We are asking all customers to please stay in your vehicles and get in line as indicated on the map. Note: rain is once again in the forecast so we will be moving as fast as we can to get your order!

For Saturday:
1.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. Note: Feel free to make two signs, one for each side, that way vendors don’t have to cross back and forth.
2.Have your trunk, or designated area of your car ready to receive your goods.
3.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 everyone,
Please place your orders by Thursday. We will do our best to accommodate last minute orders through Friday by 9pm
We are investigating a payment in advance method. Otherwise we accept cash or check in envelopes at the market.
100% grass fed beef:
Ground sirloin
Burger patties
Short ribs
I’m listing what we’ll have if we are unable to get beef back from the processor before Friday. Anyone who’s interested in stocking up on steaks, roasts, shank, or burger patties can contact us for the price of 25# or more of a single item. We’ll do a bulk order discount on those as our sale this week.
We’re still running our hanging weight special in spite of the current chaos. Save 25 cents a pound off regular price. Processing fees are additional. Contact us for details.
Quart raw:$16
Pint raw:$10
1# raw: $8
12 oz “bear”:$6
Maple syrup, old fashioned boiled not reverse osmosis:
We will have a few dozen chicken eggs. We have duck eggs and geese have begun laying. Our poultry is free range and has certified organic feed available. Duck eggs boil exactly like a chicken egg and make baked goods rise better. They have a higher protein content. They curdle if you scramble them with milk. Please let us know if you have other questions about using duck and goose eggs. Spring is peak egg season!
We wish everyone a calm and healthy week,
Bill and Sarah
