Nov. 16 M@D Newsletter - LAST order cycle before Thanksgiving!

Market at Dothan is open to accept orders.
Orders close Tuesday at 5pm
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:
Market Chitchat
Blast From The Past
Grower Notes


I trust each of you are rejoicing in this glorious day after the dreary weather we’ve experienced this week. And I hope and pray each of you are counting your blessings as we are deep into the Thanksgiving Season this year. This past week I found myself thankful for Elderberry Syrup and Chickweed Tea. Diligent use of Market natural remedies kept your newsletter editor from having to see a physician!

So this is our LAST order cycle before Thanksgiving. We here at the Market are thankful there are plenty of good healthy greens and root vegetables available. And if you’re ok with traditional sweets this is the last week Mrs. Laura’s pre-ordered pies can be ordered. If you’ve missed it she will deliver fresh pies to the Nursery for pickup the day before Thanksgiving.

We have the best Growers in the Wiregrass! Please learn more about them on our Grower Page.

AVALON FARMS: The Kinston Sweet Onions have reached their season end and are starting to sprout. The Creole Reds are still available. Pungent onions, like the Creoles, store better.

Turnips and watermelon radishes are relisted.


Newly listed are Winter Squash.  Georgia Candy Roasters (top). 3 kinds of kabocha squash, Sunshine (mid left),  Black Forest (mid right) and Shokochi Green (lower 2) and a small spaghetti squash, Angel Hair (not pictured). I had planned to bring the winter squash to the farmer’s market last Saturday,  but family issues took me out of town. But here they are finally! 

LAURA’S CONFECTIONS: With only 12 days left we’re getting down to the Thanksgiving wire and I would gently remind everyone that this is the final ordering cycle for holiday pies.  Preorder pies will be delivered to Dothan Nurseries at 3pm the day before Thanksgiving.

Christmas will be upon us in 6 1/2 weeks. Each year I make, what others have described as melt-in-your-mouth peanut brittle and am always on the lookout for tins. If you have any that are essentially collecting dust I’d be interested in purchasing them. They must be rust-free and I pay $.25 per tin. Generally speaking, they must hold a pound of brittle or measure approximately 7? × 2 1/2". Thank you for your wonderful patronage and trust you place in me to provide you with the highest quality, delectable desserts to which I could ever aspire.


DANNY’S GREENS: Danny is taking a couple of weeks for his new planting to mature. His products will be available again Nov. 30 and he’s hopeful his carrots and onions will be ready to list too!
