The Funny Farm of Grant
Hello, everyone. I’ll have the following for Saturday:
Cucumbers, zucchinis, yellow squash, basil, Nicola potatoes, scallions,
jellies, mushroom and kale powder, and anything else I can find that is
ready. If you’d like to reserve something, please text me at 734 945
0720 by 5pm Friday and I’ll respond with updates if needed. There’s some good stuff coming up later in the season. We have some fruits that we haven’t had available before in this quantity. We’ll have to see how they grow! Thanks for your support.

The Pasturage LLC of Montague
It’s tomato season! And we have plenty of bacon. You know what that means!! BLT’s! We only bring a couple of pounds of bacon, so the best way to ensure good summer eating is to pre-order. Also, we are sold out of nitrate-free ham slices. We still have plenty of regular ham slices for cold ham-barley-basil salad. It’s delicious on those summer evenings.
New! A reminder to all that I am now able to swipe your EBT card! We are only allowed have one reader per subscription, so if you know in advance that you would like to use your card, let me know so I can bring the device with me from the other market. If not, we’ll figure something out. Tell your friends! And a quick shout out to Joan: I have your lamb hearts for you!
Isn’t summer eating splendid?!

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.
