Additional vendors attending January 27th & change to winter schedule.

I apologize in advance for the changing schedule for this winter. It’s partly the weather but also that we are trying to figure out what works for both the farmers and for you all.
Liberty Family Farm, Earthscape Farm have decided to come this week in addition to Pine Row Farm. Also Dirty Roots Healing. And The Pasturage.
We are going to dispense with the every two week schedule. The farmers will let me know Sunday night if they are going to attend the next Saturday and then you will get the Monday preorder list as usual.
If something changes and they can’t make it they will let me know Thursday night for the Friday Update newsletter.
So, to recap: Back to an every week market. The difference will be that this will be a PREORDER ONLY market. Even then, if any particular vendor has something extra to bring for walk up sales they will list that as well.
Thanks for your patience as we try to work this out. Please email with any questions to sweetwaterlocalfoods@gmail.com

The Pasturage of Montague
One week of winter (ok, 10 days) and we’re headed back to mud. I’m sad about that. So are the sheep. They hate the mud; they never leave the barn. In very cold weather, they sit out in the yard, chew their cud and let the snow pile on their back.  By the time the next market comes around, who knows? It may be winter again. You can order anytime online via www.thepasturage.com/order for pick up at the farm, the Muskegon market or Sweetwater market.

Also: Reminder that Laughing Tree Bakery will be at the Muskegon Farmers Market every Saturday through the winter!
