Hello Market Folks!
Its been exciting getting ready for this season. Bringing back favorites from last year, like Mama Dee's Italian Ice. We've been talking with community members about performing at the Market and also hosting story time with the kids on Saturdays. Good things are happening here and we are excited you are a part of supporting us in that.
So things to look for this weekend: Shelby Farms Beets, Italian Ice, lots of plants, compost, and we will be selling potatoes ready to plant for $0.25 a lb.
Hello Market Folks!
Well another week has gone by and the Urban Farms team has been going nonstop. Ben is trying to stay 5 steps in front of the weather and Catherine is contacting all our summer suppliers (making sure you don't have to go a moment longer without Mama Dee's Italian Ice!). Feel free to let Catherine know your favorite flavor :)
In case you were wondering, now is the time to plant. And you are in luck, because we just got a huge delivery of vegetable, herb, and flower plants. So this Saturday come by and get all of your gardening needs here. Our plants are heirloom, no chemicals were used, and are priced right. The Urban Farms Garden Center is in full bloom!
Have you seen our pictures on Facebook? Our "hoop houses" at the farm are going up and this is awesome because it means we will get to extend our growing seasons! This week we have been so blessed and encouraged by the volunteers that have come in to help us get ready for the busy season that's just about upon us. Please don't be fooled, it's not Spring yet, but we are going to be ready when it is.
On that note, we are trying to clean up the Market, so if you are looking for any scrap wood or fence, please come by and load up. See Catherine and she will point out what's for grabs.
Well the big news this weeks is why we love Facebook. That may come as a shock (it was to us), but we found that it is super useful in providing ways to help you save. On our Facebook page there is an option for you to "check in" when you come to the Market. We have set it up so you'll receive a coupon you can present on your phone or print out to bring in to the Market. We will be changing the deal periodically, so continue to "check in" and save!
