LOCAL RASPBERRIES!

July 23rd, 2014

raspberries-s

We have fresh, sweet, ecologically grown raspberries from Fern Ridge Farm in Chelsea. Fresh-picked on Tuesday morning and packed by the pint. Raspberries are so easy to use. They make a delicious dessert or snack: plain, with vanilla yogurt, or with cream and sugar. Such a summer treat!

MAD is JULY 18

July 14th, 2014

We’re looking forward to Member Appreciation Day — MAD — this Friday, July 18. Members get a discount on all of their purchases that day and we put out tasty little samples for all customers to enjoy.

We’ll see you then!

GOT EXTRA GARDEN PRODUCE?

July 8th, 2014

Got_Extra_Veg_ColorWith the warm weather, gardens are starting to really grow. If you find that you have more fresh vegetables than you can use, please keep the Market’s Got Extra? program in mind. Got Extra? is a win–win situation: farmers and gardeners bring their excess vegetables to the Market, which we sort and distribute to local food pantries. Good food finds a good home and together we increase access to nutritious locally grown food. In July and August, Got Extra operates on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month:

  • July 14 and 28
  • August 11 and 25.

Please bring your donations to the Market’s back porch between 7:30 a.m. and noon. A lot or little, it’s all good! Thanks in advance!

THANK YOU for YOUR COMMUNITY GIVING

June 25th, 2014

From time to time, we put a jar on the front register counter for a local cause. Customers are welcome to participate or not.

We’ve recently heard back how much the recipients appreciate your generosity. Royalton Radio has received about $250 from Market customers, for example.

We wanted to pass the thanks on to you.

THANKS for PAYING with CASH and CHECKS

June 11th, 2014

Last year, we brought it to customers’ attention that the Market was spending about $27,000 annually on credit and debit card processing fees. We put out the word that you could help us improve the Market’s financial picture by paying with cash and checks when you can.

We’re seeing results! Our credit card costs are running about 20 percent lower than a year ago. Thank you for your help to

  • increase co-op’s numbers overall and
  • keep more money circulating locally.

And know that we appreciate your business, however you pay. Thank you!
