To our Sweetwater Community: Even Corona can’t stop the good stuff we’ve got growing!
New this week: Organically grown SWEET CORN! Scholl Farm has Bodacious and Summer Blend has Golden Bantam or Xtra Tender Bi-Color. Organic Elderberries from Earthkeeper! Organic Watermelon from Second Spring! Organic Peaches from Mund Farm! Last week for Organic Blueberries! All in all, it’s a great market this Saturday, and we hope to see you!
Sweetwater will be open this Saturday for our One Hour Pre-Order Drive Through Market from 10am – 11am!
Here are the steps to take to secure your place in line this coming Saturday, August 15th:
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 before market day 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. We have 3 sections opened now and are refining the traffic pattern plan every week!
Please plan to line up and stay in your vehicle. We will also have signs to help point you in the right direction.
4. Please note! 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.
5. Have your trunk, or designated area of your car ready to receive your goods. As weather warms think about bringing a cooler for frozen, refrigerated items.
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.

Blackbird Farms of Coopersville
Last Saturday it seemed that our new system of preselected, prepacked bags of vegetables worked well, so we are offering them again this week. These bags are something very much like our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) shares. We assemble bags of our highest quality veggies based on whatever is fresh and in-season for that week. In the bag, we aim to have some combination and quantity of at least six different vegetables with a combined value around $20. Each bag will cost $15. There are a limited number of bags each week.
This week’s bag will contain some combination of the following: scallions, mini-cabbage, green beans, a variety of tomatoes, summer squash, zucchini, slicing cucumbers, kale, basil, and green bell peppers. Again, each bag will cost $15.
To order your Blackbird Farms Veggie Bag, please email us at email@example.com by noon on Friday. We will then send you an invoice via Square. Payment can also be made via cash or check (payable to Blackbird Farms).
Thanks so much! We are looking forward to seeing friends old and new this Saturday!
