We use the word “Sustainable” over “Organic” because you can grow organic without being sustainable, but you cannot be sustainable without utilizing organic practices.

This Week’s Newsletter:
A Look Back at a Great Day
End of Year Schedule


Coming home from a Saturday Farmer’s Market is always a goofy mix of exhilaration, fatigue, contemplation and (for me) digging in to get the newsletter done. Today has been no different! I thought I’d share a bit of the day with you.

7:30 am Leave home for Dothan Nurseries, coffee and cold pizza in hand for breakfast on the way.

8:00 am Arrive at Nursery. The gate is still locked. A couple of other vendors park beside and behind me to await the arrival of someone with keys.

8:05 am A sweet lady arrived and unlocked the gate. We wait for her to disable the alarm system so the police don’t come running as we enter.

8:07 am Three of us are parked and starting to unload. It’s COLD outside.

8:15 am More vendors arrive. Everybody is helping each other park, put up tents, etc. The spirit of cooperation is a thing of beauty.

8:30 am EVERYBODY has arrived. The parking lot is a mess with people unloading, setting up and moving vehicles.

9:15 am ALL DONE! Vendor vehicles are replaced with customer vehicles in the parking lot. Folks start visiting booths. Old friends visit, new friends chat, Ms. Laura shares baked goods with the vendors and everyone has a good time selling and sharing.

12:30 pm. Foot traffic has slowed down, it’s time to start packing up. The process that happened earlier reverses itself as tents and tables disappear almost as fast as they earlier appeared.

1:00 pm You can’t tell we were ever there!

1:05 pm Stop at Piggly Wiggly for Chicken Feed

1:25 pm Go through McDonalds drive through for $1 coffee because I need the caffine for the drive home.


1: 55 pm Had to stop and tell this guy to get out of the road. He thought I wanted to chat and grunted at me a while before going up his driveway. It didn’t look like anyone was home so I’m hopeful he stayed put till his human arrived.

We hope you enjoyed this peek into one of our crazy fun Market Days and will plan to join us on the next one Dec. 5!
