Market News

THE MARKET IS OPEN FOR ORDERING! You may place orders today until Thursday at 8pm.

Please remember orders of milk, corn meal/flour/grits and Buttercups whipped butter will be delivered on Tuesday. You may pick these items up on Tuesday or we can hold for you till following Saturday.

WELCOME TO THE MARKET
Burr Stone Mill is a new vendor who sells flour, meal and grits ground from yellow and white organic corn. Paul Foster has always been interested in grist mills. “I stumbled onto two vertical grist mills and decided to restore them both. One is a 16” Williams mill made in 1915 and the other is a 20" Meadows made in 1935. I restored them both. A lot of people were interested in buying fresh stone ground grits and meal, so I decided to start the business. This is my first year in grinding all organic products hoping to provide the freshest and all natural products I can."

Buttercups is also new to the market selling a healthy whipped butter blend made from rBST free European style butter and added Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Avocado Oil and Sunflower Lecithin (the fruit oils and lecithin are non GMO), then plain kefir and sea salt. She has 5 flavors with more to come.

Banner Butter is now listing on the market. Banner Butter currently sources butter from Southern Swiss Dairy, a local hormone free and grass fed farm. They have plans this year to start churning their own butter from Southern Swiss Dairy cream. The butter will be in the European-style; in other words, it will be cultured which will make them the only cultured butter maker in the Southeast.

CHANGE IN MILK PRICES
We are so fortunate to have the excellent milk from Cedar Rock Dairy and Sam has done his best to serve our needs. Just like everything else, feed prices continue to increase and Sam has experienced 2 increases since he started with the Market. This last one was significant enough that he has no choice but to increase the price of milk. Effective immediately, milk will increase $0.50 per container.

GREEN PASTURE I’m extending the deadline for ordering Green Pasture products. They are currently offering all group orders 30% off so it’s a great time to stock up! Get your orders in to me before Friday.

Thank you so much for your support and I look forward to seeing you soon.

LOCATION
Building 106, Colony Park Dr. in the Basement of Suite 100, Cumming, GA 30040. Pick up every Saturday between 10-12pm.

Milk orders and RECAP changes


The market is open again in a semi abnormal state. We’ve had to make adjustments to the schedule to accommodate possible construction interruption.

We will temporarily discontinue the Wednesday market until construction is complete (probably Spring). We’re open today and tomorrow for ordering online and you will be able to pick up your order on Saturday between 10-12pm as it’s been and will be.

Exception:
If you place an order for Raw Milk, Buttercups butter or the new vendor selling Organic corn meal, flour and grits (he should be listing later today). Cedar Rock Dairy delivers his milk and their products on Tuesday’s. Pick up for these items will be at the market on Tuesday between 2-2:30pm. If you can’t make this time, we can hold the items for you until the regularly scheduled Saturday market. Please pre-pay for these items online.

If you order milk in glass jars, I’m placing a bulk order of these reCaps easy pour lids. Let me know if you are interested in buying some so I know how many to order. They will be $5 each.

Market News

THE MARKET IS OPEN FOR ORDERING! We’ve decided to open the market for pick up on Saturday. You may place orders today until Thursday at 8pm.

Exciting weather we’re having, don’t you think? The farmers work hard to keep things growing all through the winter, but it’s really hard to predict what effect the cold will have on things, especially the delicate leafy greens. There are nearly 400 items listed this week, and the growers are hoping they can get through this cold. Still, please don’t be too hard on them if they have to cancel some sales due to frozen plants.

With the combination of water damage construction (they’re saying 6-8 weeks) and because it’s a slow time of year, I’ve decided to temporarily cancel the Wednesday market until Spring. We’ll continue offering Cedar Rock’s Raw Milk that you’ll be able to pick up on Tuesday’s or we’ll hold for you until Saturday pick up. Since Sam delivers on Tuesday, and the market is closed for ordering prior to that, you’ll need to a week ahead. (Example: place a milk order Wednesday and/or Thursday for pick up the following Tuesday or Saturday) Please email me if you have questions.

If you ordered Cod Liver Oil or Coconut oil, it’s waiting for you at the market and you may pick it up on Saturday.

If you are a paid member of The Cumming Harvest, I will begin adding 2 weeks to your membership to compensate for the lost time from the water leak.

Thank you so much for your patience and I look forward to seeing you soon.

We're still closed for construction


Good Evening.

The crews are replacing sheet-rock and carpet in our area this coming week. :( So we still closed at this time and will NOT open for Wednesday ordering tomorrow as originally planned. I am checking the market progress every day and will update you regularly.

With the pending weather this week I guess this couldn’t have happened at a better time. Farmers will surely be taking a break from harvesting and spend time protecting their plants and farm animals.

I’m sorry for this inconvenience, there usually isn’t a break in our schedule except for a holiday or dangerous weather.

Thank you so much for your patience!

Suzanne

The Market is CLOSED this week.


Good Afternoon!

Unfortunately we’re going to have to cancel this Saturday’s market. When I stopped by the market today both units were roped off with caution tape and an emergency restoration company was inside cleaning damage. You can imagine my concern as I walked down the stairs. Apparently, suite 200 (to the right of us) had a toilet overflow and water filled the floor/ceiling, walls and carpet for 2 days straight. They have removed all the sheet-rock, insulation and carpet/pad from suite 200.

The market has damage to the walls, ceiling and carpet but not enough to remove it. They have several fans and dehumidifiers in every room of the market drying everything. They plan to replace the padding, lower 2’ of drywall and baseboards this week and couldn’t tell me exactly when they would be finished but that it would be done this week.

I’m sorry for this inconvenience but I hope you all have a great New Year!

The market will reopen for ordering on Sunday at 10am and stay open till Monday at 8pm. Pick up will be Wednesday from 12-1pm. At this time we’ll be back to our regular schedule.

Thank you for all your support in 2013!
