Limited One Hour 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 One Hour Pre-Order Drive Up Market work!
We were amazed at the turnout for the last market, and are working on making the traffic flow as smoothly as possible, all while adhering to social distance mandates. Thanks to everyone who stopped out and stayed patient. For this Saturday we will widen the space of the market and have two lanes for all vendors.Here are the steps to take to secure your place in line this coming Saturday, April 18th:

1. Look over the list below. Each vendor has a unique deadline for when they need to receive your pre-order depending on their product. Send your pre-order to each vendor you want to order from, within their required deadlines.
2. Vendors will respond back by no later than Friday April 10th with an order confirmation and an invoice that in most cases will allow you to pre-pay for your order. If a vendor is not set up to take payment online they will accept checks (preferred) or cash in a sealed envelope on market day pickup.
3. Market Day. Important! Please see the attached map with arrows indicating which way you should plan to approach the market.
Please plan to line up and stay in your vehicleWe will also have signs to help point you in the right direction.
4. 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.
5. Have your trunk, or designated area of your car ready to receive your goods.
6. 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.

What is vermicompost?
Wormies is a local Worm Farm producing the liveliest, freshest vermicompost for your soil. Vermicompost (worm manure) are used as a powerful soil amendment and an all-natural fertilizer, containing rich microbiological colonies that help fight soil-borne plant diseases and repel insects.
Worm castings are water-soluble, allowing plants to quickly and easily absorb essential nutrients and trace minerals. When the waste nutrients pass through the worm’s digestive tract, it forms a coating around it which allows for the nutrients to “time release” into the soil. Nutrients are readily available to plant material over a greater length of time and will not burn even the most delicate plants. A small amount of goes a long way!
Price & Size Info:
– 3.5 gal, $25
– 1/2 gal, $10
Recommended application,
– For existing gardens and potted plants 1/4 to 1/2 cup per square foot.
– For new garden beds or pots, 10-20% of vermicompost into your soil mix.
Vermicompost Tea for plants:
– 32 oz, $8
– 1/2 gal, $12
Essential Garden & Potting Soil Mix, $20/cft
Supercharged Living Soil Mix, $40/cft
Contains an extra addition of beneficial organisms, minerals, trace elements, amino-acid based pellets, Biochar, rice hulls and pumice.
Composting worms, $15/ half lb
