The Weblog

We send out cool articles and farmer highlights using a different email program. You can see the archives of those emails here and through our facebook page! We use this “weblog” every Friday evening to let you know the market page is accepting orders (look for the little add to cart buttons next to products). Northeast Georgia Locally Grown was officially OPENED on Monday, April 26th, 2010 and we are so thankful that you are helping support fresh local foods each week.

Locally Grown - Availability for Novemer 7th, 2012

Hey Local Food Lovers,

I’ll keep it real short tonight. We’ve been enjoying the tastes of the season lately, especially lots of cilantro which does great this time of year as long as the frost doesn’t get it. Cilantro is one of my favorite herbs and there’s really no shortage of foods that it makes delicious. Fresh herbs always kick ordinary meatballs into overdrive and I discovered earlier this year that if you’re a cilantro fan, you’ll love it that way. We have three growers featuring it this week so spread the joy.

I also really encourage folks to share their productive feedback with growers. We just recently added the e-mails of every grower to their grower descriptions. Since it’s rare that growers and customers get to see each other at this market, if you ever have something that you particularly enjoy, or that you have a simple suggestion for improving, don’t be shy. We (us market managers that is) enjoy sharing and exchanging information but sometimes direct communication can convey so much more than we can. Growers would love to hear from you. They are constantly asking us for feedback and we try and pass along as much as we can.

Just a reminder that the market will definitely be shortening it’s pickup time to 6:30pm for the remainder of the winter. As you probably noticed today, the time change definitely took our extra daylight so this will help us stay out of the cold and dark a bit. Thanks for understanding.

There’s more winter greens this week with collards, kale and turnip greens prolific. I know lots of you love your winter greens. And if you haven’t fallen in love, here’s a fun tip. Try Turnip Green Pesto. Make it just like basil pesto but blanche the turnip greens before throwing them in the mixer. We fell in love with these last year, and what better way to eat your greens.
