New Growers!

Hello and Happy Holidays to everyone!

CCLG is proud to announce 3 new growers have joined our ranks! Welcome aboard SaraFay Farm, Rise and Shine Bread, and Soap Nuts. Some wonderful new products up on the market this week with these new growers as well as from our older member growers. Also in today’s news, 3 Rock Farm has returned with new listings as well!

It’s been a busy week around here with new growers, new products, adding new categories for you to choose from and a bit of reorganizing. But it’s all worth it to continue offering you the best in local and chemical free products that we can!

With the holidays coming fast this is the perfect time to peruse the new product listings and maybe pick up something new and different (not to mention healthy, wholesome, and handmade) for those special people in your life!

Have a fantastic week and we look forward to seeing you all on Thursday for pickup!

Time to start thinking about your Thanksgiving menu

Happy November ya’ll! All the little Trick or Treaters out last week for Halloween were a wonderfully cute and interesting site. We saw it all from a family all dress as Alice in Wonderland characters to Captain Jack Sparrow to Mummies to Skeletons to Werewolves! What a fantastic time of year to let your creepy imaginations run wild with lawn decor too! We hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween.

Now it’s November and time to be thinking about that Thanksgiving Day feast menu. Whether you plan on making traditional fare or serving up non-traditional cuisine for something different, chemical free is, as always, the best way to go for great taste and better health.

Check out what’s available this week on the market. As always, locally grown and chemical/hormone free!

Blessings, Healthy Eating and Happy Gardening to you all!

Lettuce Prices Fall

Hello Everyone,
With these cooler days and nights one supplier has a bumper crop of Lettuce at this time. This week Lettuce is priced at $1.25 a head. Some extra salad on the table this week? Pair this Lettuce with some of the Tomatoes and Cucumbers for an evening appetizer or snack.

Follow a salad with some Free range Chicken that is Pasture raised, Chemical, Hormone and Antibiotic free. Roast, Grilled or slow cooked in the crock pot, always full of flavor and healthy too.

Fall is time to do some canning, 25 lb boxes of Tomatoes for just $32, this will make several quarts of Tomato sauce. Or perhaps pickle some Cucumbers. If you have any questions about canning, a great way to save and preserve food without any pesticides hormones or Antibiotics, visit the canning information link at the bottom of the page.

Thanksgiving is not far away. I will state the obvious, there will NOT be a market on Thanksgiving Day. We will bring the market forward to Tuesday Thanksgiving Week. Market will open the Friday morning before Thanksgiving, and close 9:00 a.m. Monday. Please order as early as possible to assist our growers. Special Orders for Meat and Fish can be called in the week before I am trying to arrange an open phone line for Sunday p.m.

Time Change
Next weekend it is time to change the clocks, so put them back one hour before you go to bed on Saturday night, and enjoy the extra hours sleep.

Here are the links

Have a great week eating Pesticide and Chemical free.
