Lots Going on This month!


Good morning friends, and Happy Sunday to you!

Although we are already a week into the month of April there are still lots of things going on in the area. So many that I can’t possibly list them all here.

The Spring Expo, Taste of Ocala, and Twilight Jazz events are all being held Saturday and Sunday the 13th and 14th in the Indian Cultural Center in Ocala. April 19th Snow’s Market is having a craft fair and show. The Citrus County Families group on Facebook has their weekly nature walks every Thursday, changing which parks they visit week by week. Penn Station on W Pennsylvania Ave in Dunnellon is having a live musical event soon, check with restaurant for details. And so much more!

In preparation for the Spring Expo this weekend, Shoebox Herb Gardens has taken most of their products off the market temporarily but don’t worry, they’ll be back soon! Register Cracker Farm’s chickens have suddenly started laying a ton of brown eggs while Fox Hollow Farm’s chickens are laying those beautiful green and brown eggs. LOTS of veggies on the market again this week from 3 Rock Farm and Register Cracker Farm. Delicious homemade jams, jellies, and bakery items are available from SaraFay Farm, 3 Rock Farm, and Shoebox Herb Gardens. Soap Nuts has your wonderful healthful natural soaps and laundry aids. And as always Simply Seafood and Florida Fresh Meat Company have all your organic and grass fed meat and fish!

Just After Easter


Hi,
As many of your know our Market Manager Michael, was born in the UK. He shared that Good Friday is the traditional day to plant potatoes. Well this past Good Friday the ground was frozen with a hard frost overnight and snow flurries at his brothers house in Lincolnshire. So you can see it is not just us having unseasonably cold weather.
This weather is causing a lot of produce from our local growers to be delayed.

As I write this it is a bright sunny and warm spring day, full of promise for the produce to come.

Just a reminder that your market is open until late this evening.

As always we appreciate you supporting your On-Line Farmers Market.

Happy Easter!


Happy Easter dear friends! This week is your last week before Easter is here to get your naturally grown meats and produce for the family gathering!

Don’t feel like cleaning up the mess of food dyes from coloring Easter Eggs? Fox Hollow Farm has naturally colored eggs! Hard boil them and give the kids some crayons! Fun and no messy clean up! One idea my Mother always loves to do for Easter is to hard boil the eggs, peal them and THEN color them to make Deviled Eggs! They are fun for the eye and delicious for the tummy no matter what your age!

Gaia’s Creamery and Florida Fresh Meat Company have your grass fed meats while Simply Seafood has all the best local from the sea! Who’s thinking LOBSTER TAILS for Easter Dinner? YUM!

More and more veggies are coming on the Market from Register Cracker Farm, 3 Rock Farm, and Shoebox Herb Gardens. Meanwhile SaraFay Farm, 3 Rock Farm, and Shoebox Herb Gardens have your jellies, jams, and preserves covered be it for breakfast or culinary purposes!

Rise and Shine Bread has all the best Gluten Free breads you could want, not to mention DELICIOUS energy bars, cookies, and muffins!!!

Don’t forget the milk and cheese! Coffey Break Farm has goat milk and several flavored Chevre’s available this week after last week’s tasting. I personally LOVED the Cranberry Pecan and Chocolate Cherry. Surprise the family with a wonderful flavored goat cheese log this Easter! Gaia’s Creamery also has goat milk and grass fed cows milk, homemade butter, and YOGURT!

With such a delicious lineup how could you possibly go wrong?! Ordering is open from Sunday morning to Tuesday night. Quantities are sometimes limited so don’t delay www.citruscounty.locallygrown.net/.

Blessings, Healthy Eating, and Happy Gardening!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!


Hello, Hello, Hello and Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you! Yes, it’s St. Patrick’s Day which means it’s time to plant your garden beans!

Speaking of planting, Saturday’s 6th Annual Green Thumb Plant Show & Sale was smaller than last year but was still a success for some of your local growers! Shoebox Herb Gardens still has a few vegetable and herb plants available. You’ll want to check the Live Plants tab throughout the week as they are able to take stock of what they have left and what has matured while they were busy preparing for Saturday’s show.

Here’s something to wet your appetite for week, Coffey Break Farm is planning to send some sample cups of a few different flavors of their lovely flavored Chevre in to the Market this week for everyone to try! How great is that?! YUM! I can hardly wait!

Now don’t forget, Easter is coming fast and I’m sure many of you have big plans with the family for a feast and possibly some Easter Egg hunting with the kids and grandkids. Fox Hollow Farm’s got you covered if your family is like ours and LOVES their Deviled Eggs after the hunt is done!

Florida Fresh Meat Co. and Gaia’s Creamery have your grass fed organic meats. Coffey Break and Gaia’s Creamery have fantastic milk and dairy products. While Register Cracker Farm has lots and lots of vegetables this week to choose from!

With so many items to choose from it’s hard to pick a favorite from Rise and Shine Bread, SaraFay Farm, and 3 Rock Farm! Baked goods, jams & jellies, vegetables… it’s all SO GOOD!

What a mess cooking a feast can be, dishes, laundry, hand washing; Soap Nuts has several products that help you get clean naturally!

For new customers, WELCOME to the CCLG Market! Ordering ends overnight Tuesday to Wednesday. So make sure you get your orders in soon!
