Sweetwater Local Foods Market
Saturday, July 30th , 2022
10:00am to 11:00am
Mercy Health Lakes Village
-Blackbird Farms is also asking for preorders for their pre-packed $15 bags of fresh farm veggies…and the good stuff is starting to roll in on their farm as well! Not that it’s not all good stuff, but when the cukes, squash, garlic & peppers start coming – yay!
-Please be sure to get your bread orders in to Laughing Tree by 6pm Tuesday! They always have a good selection of extra breads & pastries for non-preorders but if you take a look at their list of things available for preorder you will find a lot more!
-Chicken, Beef, Pork & Lamb: Scholl Farm, Pine Row Farm & The Pasturage would all encourage you to preorder for the best selections!
-Dark Water Coffee needs preorders by Wednesday for roasting preference. They had cups of their newest grind CRUZ last Saturday and it was delicious!
Today’s Soapbox Special: Glyphosate (aka Roundup) is banned in 32 countries, but not here. You won’t find it in the products raised by our farmers. Here’s why: Sweetwater Pledge to Customers
See you Saturday at the Market!
Vendors Attending Saturday July 30th:
Blackbird Farm of Coopersville
This week at market, we are again offering our pre-selected, pre-packed bags of fresh vegetables. These bags are something akin to 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. We also include a brief note from Farmer Greg and a farm-tested recipe. Each bag costs $15.
This week’s bag will likely contain a combination of some of the following: kale, head lettuce, green beans, cucumbers, summer squash, zucchini, scallions, parsley, basil, and fresh garlic. Again, each bag will cost $15.
To order your Blackbird Farms Veggie Bag, please email us at email@example.com
We also plan to have many items for walk-up sales—watch for more information in Friday’s newsletter.
Thanks so much! We’re looking forward to seeing friends old and new this Saturday!
