Weekly Market Notes for April 18, 2013

Hello Market Friends:

We are absolutely delighted to announce the arrival of another Market Baby! Blythe Weber of Growing Spaces gave birth to a beautiful little boy, Sebastian Gordon Smith, on April the 9th.

Blythe writes: "Its a good thing we are farmers, because this boy is going to eat us out of house and home! He's already up to 8lbs 12oz from 7lbs 13oz at birth (almost a pound in the first week!). Looking forward to introducing him to all of our market friends! Hoping to be back at the market first or second week of May."

Congratulations Blythe and Adam!

Here's what's coming in:

"Urban Harvest will be at market with seeds and soil amendments and a few bags of potting soil too. Let us know if you need any seed starting trays. As weather is warming up, come and get some seed potatoes too before we sell out." Colette and Suzanne

From the Akiwenzies: “We will be down with smoked for sure, and either fresh or frozen fish as well, depending what the week brings.”

Ann Van der Heyden called to tell us that she will be bringing us wonderful April salad greens from their greenhouse at Woolerdale Organic Farm!

From Country Meadows: “In addition to our pork (sausages, chops & hams) we'll have bacon as well this week, also some cold tolerant herbs and plants for anyone who wants to get an early start on gardening, especially container gardening. Our greenhouses are "busting at the seams". The weather might be frightful, but inside the greenhouses things are absolutely delightful.” Linda and Angelos

We have a good supply of reusable produce bags to put your loose veggies and fruit into. $1 apiece, a pack of 3 for $2 or—the bargain!--two packs for $5. Available at Ted Thorpe's table or from me (Anne).

Andrew Cash and Jonah Schein will be visiting, to chat about what they're working on and hear from you.

See you at the market!

Anne Freeman

P.S. A couple of notices about 'goings-on' in the coming week:

What to know about GMO

Understanding our food system and the foods we eat.

April 22nd, Sorauren Park Field House, 7:30 pm following the market

“This is the second night of our Market Talks series. We all have heard discussions about GMOs but how much do we know and understand?

Join us in the field house following the Sorauren Farmers' Market for this free information session.

We bring together experienced guests along with our market vendors to give you the opportunity to better understand your food.

Q&A will follow the talk.”
