Here are some quick ideas… Stir fry…or *grated on our salad greens *salad dressing *candied *pickled *grated with grated carrots *home-brewed ginger ale *ginger glaze for meat *home-brewed ginger champagne *morning breakfast drink *tea *in baked goods like gingerbread.

Here are some of the specials this week…
My Daily Bread has fresh milled Red Wheat on Sale this week $2.00 off!

St. Simons Island Shrimp Specialists-PICK UP THIS WEEK Our first delivery date is scheduled for October 8th. www.ShellCreekSeafood.co
They will be selling HACCP Certified Wild Caught Georgia sweet white shrimp, delivering once a month. You will be able to place orders throughout the month but pick up will usually be the first Saturday of the month. These pre-orders have to be paid ahead, if you only order shrimp please pay online. If you order other items and will be picking up this Saturday the shrimp will be added to your total.

Doug’s Alaska Salmon the fresh catch is scheduled to be delivered this Friday, you may preorder online starting today.

Here’s something I haven’t talked about in a while… despite all of our best efforts, sometimes the things you order don’t make it into your baskets on Saturday. The growers try their best, but sometimes they aren’t able to fill orders for a variety of reasons. They almost always go into the system and remove the items they can’t fill by 10am on Saturday, so by then you should be able to look at your order on the website and get a reasonable expectation of what we’ll have ready for you when you arrive. Even then, though, things can go wrong. A grower can leave a box at home, sitting on their kitchen counter, and when we go to fill your order, an item might be missing. We mark those items off on the spot, using our little hand-held devices, and try to tell you when we hand you your items. And sometimes, we mess up ourselves filling your orders and think we put everything in your box only to find a bag with your name on it at the end of the night. In that case, we take it off your order and automatically issue a refund to your account if you paid in person when you picked things up.

Many of you are pre-paying these days, using cards online. That’s great for everyone, as it really streamlines the process. It’s a bit of a misnomer, though, because even though you placed your order on Wednesday or Thursday, I don’t actually run the cards until Saturday afternoon or Sunday, after all the orders have been finalized. That way, you’re never charged for items the growers took off, or didn’t bring, or that we left out of your box. You can see exactly what you were charged for, and what the status was for every item on your order, by looking at your order history on the Your Account page. There, you can see a PDF invoice for every order you have ever placed at TCH, a line-by-line accounting for every item, and the total you were charged (or paid in person).

And if you ever have any question, please don’t hesitate to ask. Just reply to any email the system sends you, and it’ll come right to me.

Indian Creek Angus We are so very saddened by the passing of Josh Barron on September 10th. Josh was the young man that delivered to us every Saturday and may have met some of you out by his truck. We’ve known the Barron family for 6 years and grown to love and respect them for their love of their animals, family farm and the closeness they have. Josh had just started working on the farm after graduating from UGA, which is when he started delivering to us. We’ll miss him and his friendly smile. Please keep the Barron family in your thoughts and prayers. Understandably, they’ll be taking a break from the market until further notice.

Growers are finishing up harvesting summer crops and about to if they haven’t already, planted their fall crops. Look for beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, collards, lettuce, kale, mustard, radishes, spinach and turnips coming soon.

The Market is Moving
For 5 years we have been able to operate out of locations given to us by a very generous couple (also customers) of the market, Stan and Carla Rutledge. We moved into our current location with hopes of staying for a while but unfortunately the space is needed for another use. Stan and Carla were willing to find another spot for us (like I said they are so over-the-top generous and kind) but we decided they had given so much for so long, it was best if we found another location that could possibly grow into more of a community benefit. I’ve always hoped this market would evolve into a community ministry where everyone felt comfortable and able to purchase from our growers, learn to grow their own food, learn how to prepare locally grown meals and a market that was well known as a place for convenient access to our local farmers. I think we found a location that just might make this happen.

We’re happy to announce that we’ve been invited to use a building at the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit is a sister church of St. Philips Cathedral who hosts the Peachtree Road Farmers Market a producer only market of only organically growing farmers, very much like us.

Holy Spirit currently has a nonfood pantry that operates once a month, plans to build an organically grown garden that will supply food to the pantry and best of all…it’s convenient to 400, has lots of parking and is perfect for an outdoor farmers market event.

In the mean time, we’ll be operating out of our current location at Enterprise Drive until mid-October, the tentative move date is Oct 22nd, but I’ll have more details to come later.
