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.
