Friday Market NewsletterAbout this Friday newsletter. Monday’s email will give you the list of products from vendors that can be (in some cases, need to be) preordered. It gives you the list of vendors, their products and how to contact to place an order.
The Friday email is more like our traditional “What’s New” at the market and will list who is coming and what they are bringing for walk in sales.
Hope that helps explain things.
Have a happy, healthy & safe 4th of July weekend, and hope to see you at the market!

-Friday is the last day to preorder those tasty tortillas from J&J Tortilla for the July 9th Market! See list at end.
-Forest Finds has a new Summer Product Pricelist available! Check out the essential summer skin care products! They will take preorders as well as walk up sales on Saturday.
-See Sarah’s farm musings at Pine Row Farm, it will put a smile on your face!
-Two tips for easy market navigating: bring cash when possible (keeps all the $$ in the right pockets!) and bring a cooler!

Pine Row Farm of Rothbury
Hello :-),
In the farm news. The mulberries are ripe, milkweed is blooming, and the fireflies are plentiful. The whippoorwill song in the late evening and happy chatter of the barn swallows by day provide encouragement as we do chores. The cow calf group has crossed the road again to graze the south side of the farm. The turkeys are old enough to be free range and are learning to go into the poultry coop at night. We are in week two of training up a new livestock guardian pup. She is 3 months old. The kids have named her Artemis. I call her Art.
We will accept orders until 5pm on Friday. I will plan to get totals emailed out by 9:00pm.  If you don’t get a response from me, please contact me. We accept cash or check payable to Pine Row Farm.
