Friday Update Newsletter

Beautiful fall weekend predicted, great time to scoop up all the fall fruits, veggies, meats and baked goods from the only FRESH LOCAL ORGANIC farmers market in West Michigan! There’s still time to get a preorder in on some items (apples!) but there will also be plenty for walk up sales.
Thanks again, and see you at the Market!

Vendors Attending Saturday October 1st:

The Pasturage of Montague
Are you enjoying those apples?!  Aren’t they good?!  Neither the Jensen’s nor I have cold storage, so if you want them throughout the fall, I highly recommend buying in bulk now and figuring out a place to store them.  We will have them at Sweetwater on 10/1 and 10/15.  We will NOT be at Sweetwater on 10/8 or 10/22.  I do not know if the apples will keep until 10/29, but if they do, I’ll plan to bring them then.  Feel free to pre-order; walk-ups welcome. Bring your own containers, please.
Prices are as follows:
Under 24# is $3.25/#
Over 24# is $3.00/#
Keep in mind 24# is about a half bushel, which nearly fills a paper grocery bag. I thank you for your patience as I fumble and figure this out!
Don’t forget to pre-order your pork and lamb as well Get the whole list here:
The Pasturage LLC of Montague UPDATE 6 17 22

Friday Update Newsletter
Julie Engel of the Pasturage is asking for preorders for the Honeycrisp Apples. Given that the weather reports are calling for rain Saturday she would like to get a head start on filling orders. No worries if you don’t preorder, she will have plenty of apples, but do remember to bring your own containers.

Also Earthkeeper Farm is returning with a new offering: frozen elderberries!

Blackbird Farm, Earthscape Farm, Liberty Farm & The Woven Farm have a nice variety of fall veggies, baked goods & meats available for both preorder and walk up sales!

Thanks again, and see you at the Market!

Vendors Attending Saturday September 24th:

The Pasturage of Montague
Update on purchasing Certified Organic Honeycrisp Apples Saturday: In light of the rain predicted for Saturday, I think I’d better get a jump on people’s orders. That way, people don’t have to stand in the rain while I weigh apples.  To place a preorder: Text or call 231 288 6112. Email thepasturage@gmail.com 
To pay: Cash or check (made out to The Pasturage, LLC) at pick up is preferred. And don’t forget to check out our meat pricelist and pre-order your meat as well!
Apple details:
Bring your own container.  Note that 48# is roughly a bushel. Prices are as follows:
-For 48# and above, this weekend only, Sweetwater Special, it will be $2.80/#.
-Between 24-48#, it’ll be $3/#.
-Anything under 24# is $3.25/#.
Order as many as you want!  Brave the weather!  These beauts are worth it!!
More info on apples: These apples are via my neighbors the Jensen Family, at First Fruits Farm in New Era. They have harvested their first ever Certified Organic Honeycrisp crop. They’re delicious, I mean, blow your mind. They are a beautiful red strained variety; really something to be proud of. Note that 48# is roughly a bushel.
After this weekend, we will likely still have the apples for sale, but I’m not sure. I know we will not be at Sweetwater on 10/8 or 10/29.
Come out in droves for this fall favorite!
As always, we will have pork and lamb for sale as well!

Earthkeeper Farm of Kent City
Deadline 8pm Friday.

Frozen, off-the-stem 5lb box is $48 (we do not have 1lb units at this time)
Elderberries are a nutritional powerhouse, known for their immune boosting compounds and health benefits. They are most often made into elderberry syrup, which can be taken to help prevent colds or lessen their severity. They can also be made into jellies, baked goods, and wine or fermented drinks.
Garlic
German Extra Hardy, $14/lb. There are about 12 heads in a pound. Minimum order of 1lb.
Please email Rachelle@earthkeeperfarm.com or call/text 616-403-0526 to place order. Payment can be made at market pick up with a check, cash, or credit card. Or we can email you an invoice for online payment. Order deadline is 8pm the Friday before market. More farm info at www.earthkeeperfarm.com

Earthscape Farm of Hesperia
Hello, Sweetwater friends!  We will be there on Saturday, September 24th!  
I HAVE SO MANY PEPPERS!  RED, ORANGE, LAVENDAR, PURPLE, GREEN, AND POBLANO! Peppers freeze well!  Seed and chop them.  Spread them 1 layer deep on cookie sheets and freeze till hard.  Put them in any kind of container.  They will last a year in the freezer, and can be used in any cooked dish – eggs, chili, casseroles, etc.  I like to freeze red peppers to add pizzazz to any dish.  Sweet Red Peppers always make me remember Amy Oak.  They were her favorite.   Plus we will bring any other extra vegetables with us – eggplant, onions, Savoy, red and green cabbage, and maybe more.   Need tomatoes? Please let us know if you want to pay at pick up (cash or checks made out to Earthscape Farm), or on line with a Square invoice.  We can most likely fill orders up until 8am Saturday morning!

Vendors Attending Saturday September 24th:

The Pasturage of Montague
Guess what!?!? We will have Local Certified Organic Honeycrisp Apples for sale! My neighbors, The Jensen Family, at First Fruits Farm in New Era have harvested their first ever Certified Organic Honeycrisp crop. They’re delicious, I mean, blow your mind. They are a beautiful red strained variety; really something to be proud of. Here’s the deal: bring your own container, walk-up only, no pre-orders please. Note that 48# is roughly a bushel. Prices are as follows:
-For 48# and above, this weekend only, Sweetwater Special, it will be $2.80/#.
-Between 24-48#, it’ll be $3/#.
-Anything under 24# is $3.25/#.
After this weekend, we will likely still have the apples for sale, but I’m not sure. I know we will not be at Sweetwater on 10/8 or 10/29.
Come out in droves for this fall favorite!
As always, we will have pork and lamb for sale as well!

Sweetwater Friday Update News for Saturday August 27th Farmers Market


Sweetwater Local Foods Market

Friday Update Newsletter
All I can say about this Saturday is that if you care about organic in any way shape or form you won’t miss this market! Just in terms of the precious organic fruit we’ve all been missing, we’ll have peaches, apples and watermelons available (and raspberries & elderberries if you get to market early)!

If you went on the Organic Bus Tour back some years ago you will remember touring Crow Feather Farm. They are now Crow’s Nest Ltd & Carolyn is back Saturday with some beautiful garlic for sale!

Liberty Farm made a late decision to return Saturday, so please take a look at their list and put in a preorder by Friday evening. They will have items for walk ups but best choice is a preorder.

As for the peaches, Sam reports she will also have a limited amount of half bushels for $50 and will also have peaches for walk up sales Saturday! See her listing if you want to reserve some. These are from Greg Mund’s farm, were certified organic and he took great pride in them.

Again, please consider preordering meats from the four farms with frozen meats this week: Pine Row Farm, The Pasturage, Scholl Farm & Liberty Farm. They only have so much space for freezers, coolers, etc and can’t bring everything…so order up, please!?

Thanks again, and hope to see you all at the Market!

Vendors Attending Saturday August 27th:

Wowieeeeee, peaches are the popular item this week!! I picked Thursday evening, and they are abundant as ever and sweet as can be! I have all current orders fulfilled (I haven’t gotten confirmation emails sent out yet, so no worries if you’ve placed an order and have not received a response!) I will have peaches available for walk up in both quarts ($6/quart) and half bushels ($50/half bushel.) – for folks who are interested in adding quantities to their current order, please send me an email to update your order!
NOTE: For the Half Bushel orders you will need to bring your own containers – mine are borrowed and need to return to owner!
As a reminder, these peaches are from Greg Mund’s farm, and all profits will be donated to WMEAC in his honor. They are organic, chemical free peaches. They are looking spectacular, but do have some marks/insect damage here and there due to their organic nature!

INSTRUCTIONS FOR How to Pre-Order
1. Look over the list. Each vendor has a unique deadline for when they need to receive your pre-order depending on their product. Send your pre-order by email 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.

STAY IN TOUCH!
If you have not already done so you may want to sign up for the newsletter
to be informed of the pre-order schedule for the next market.
