SPECIAL MARKET EDITION

Haiti Relief Issue

The Wiregrass was thankfully spared the devastation that Hurricane Matthew brought to our country, but our neighbors in the Caribbean were not so fortunate. Haiti in particular was hit hard barely 2 years ago by an earthquake, and now with Matthew having leveled much of the country the needs are astronomical.

Market customer, Chris Lamere, is spearheading an effort to help rural farmers in Haiti and this week the Market is matching all donations made this week to help the farmers of Petit Trou de Nippes rebuild both local infrastructure and their farms. This means that if you donate $10, the farmers will receive $20. We hope you’ll read Chris’s letter and check out the young couple who have adopted these farmers and are going back in a few days.

We have made it easy for you to donate. There are several new Market “items” of donations in several amounts to choose from. Whatever you donate will added to your invoice total and matched by the Market.

There are other things we as a market community can do as well. The people of Petit Trou will be needing both tree and vegetable seeds going forward as they rebuild. Please start NOW saving topical tree seeds, especially mango and avocado seeds if possible. If anyone has any 2016 seed they don’t anticipate using in the near future it could help save lives and help rebuild the lives and economy of this village. Chris is a regular at the Market and has volunteered to mail all seeds we collect.


CBC News “There’s Nothing Left”

“Thank you for allowing me to present this idea to you.  After Hurricane Matthew hit Haiti so hard, I was looking for a way to help that would be localized and targeted to the specific needs of the Haitians.  I came across a couple with an amazing story that actually started with the devastating earthquake in 2010.  Since then, they have created and nurtured a project which has brought together around 30 small farmers in the village of Petit Trou de Nippes.  These are not farmers that use heavy machinery to help them work, either.  They dig roots up by hand, build retention ponds by hand and water with water pails when the small generator quits on them.  The efforts were successful in helping those farmers in the village come together and work to improve their lands, their lives and the small economy around them.  In fact, those efforts were so successful that prominent Haitian politicians had reached out to find ways to duplicate those methods around the country.  Hurricane Matthew has destroyed about 80% of the village and eradicated most of the agricultural accomplishments they had been able to make.  Mackenzy and Kirsty are returning to Haiti in less than two weeks to start the arduous task of rebuilding.
I hope you will read their blog to fully understand what they have done and what they have ahead of them now.  https://haitiansforchange.wordpress.com  
I thought that the participants in our Market might think the same way that I do: that it is the perfect match for us to support Mackenzy’s Vision.  A local sustainable market reaching out to another in need.  In the immediate future, they are in need of funds to secure basic necessities, food and shelter.  They will also need certain help to re-establish the farming community itself, such as rebuilding a seed supply.  The Haitians are a resilient people and particularly the people of Petit Trou.  If anyone is interested in donating organic or heirloom seeds, they can contact me and I will cover the cost of shipping to Haiti. 

For donations of funds, people can visit the blog site listed above or  https://freefunder.com/campaign/Haiti-Hurricane-Relief

Thank you,
Chris Lamere"

RICHTER FARMS Zimmermans said this about Red Wattle pork chops: “The flavor is rich, herbaceous, even a little sweet. It packs more flavor than I’ve ever had in a pork chop. The crowning glory of Red Wattle pork, however, is its fat. It marbles the meat and wraps the chop in a soft, opaque band. When cooked it melts within the meat and softens its edge to a luscious, lip-smacking bite. This is melt-in-your mouth fat, the kind of succulent experience you expect in great steaks and some cured meats.  It’s never a sensation I’d experienced in a pork chop until I met this one. The pork comes from hogs that are raised impeccably. The pigs are not confined, have access to the outdoors, and never receive antibiotics or hormones. This lifestyle is good for the pigs, but it doesn’t make for uniform pork—the chops may vary a bit from piece to piece, rather than being identical.”

SANDSPUR FARMS “I hope everyone enjoyed the samples of our “pig-pickin’ cake.” We do have it available for sale as well.“

This and That from Ros

What a glorious day to be at the Market! I arrived at Dothan Nurseries early yesterday to find our tent surrounded by HUNDREDS (well maybe not but a LOT for sure!) of potted mums! It was such a lovely sight that the routine tasks involving bags, coolers and checking off invoices begged to wait. Add the hint of crisp in the air, sweet breezes and good company as people came and went and it was probably the most perfect place in the city.

Let me encourage you to enjoy the outdoors a little this month at the Nursery. It truly is one of the loveliest places in Dothan with no end of indoor and outdoor inspiration. Even if you don’t have a green thumb and kill plants by looking at them there are still many things to get your creative juices going. Be sure to thank JD and the staff for their vision and support of Dothan’s ONLY Sustainable Farmer’s Market.


Announcements


This Friday, November 14, is NATIONAL DESSERT DAY. We will be celebrating at the market with DESSERTS! Our vendors will be bringing sweets for you to sample. We hope you’ll join us in serious celebration of this fun national holiday! “This is a day to indulge in that wonderful, sweet ending to a meal. Desserts can be from a list including many things including cakes, cookies, jello, pastries, ice cream, pies, pudding, candy and fruit.”

We are back to a WEEKLY schedule till mid November. If you have not checked it yet, our homepage now lists the Market Schedule.

Please mark Thursday, December 1 on your calendar. That is the day for Christmas Open House and our Market vendors will be here in person with fresh seasonal produce, samples of products and a wonderful assortment of local, handmade food and gift items to get your Christmas season off to a good start.

Be sure to read our Vendor notes (below all the pies and cakes!) as some of them have special notes and new products.

Last but not least, WELCOME GINTHER FARMS! After last week’s article about how chicken molts affect egg production (explaining why several of us can’t offer many eggs!) it seemed God saw our need as the Ginther’s young chickens are blessing them, and now us prolifically! We hope you’ll enjoy getting to know this lovely family as much as we enjoy knowing them.

MARY’S PEEPS I wanted to take time and thank everyone who orders my products, and I appreciate so much returning and recycling containers and cold sacks so I can better pack your products. I wanted to let those who haven’t tried my cakes, or muffins, please do, and remember I do make other products in jars, like a variety of pepper jellies, Fresh wildflower honey, and jams and jellies, and my free range eggs. Thank you so much for your business, it is much appreciated. Please comment and let me know how I am doing. Mary Peeps and Marys Bees, Mary Dale Peeples, feel free to email me anytime.

RICHTER FARMS “Red Wattles are an old breed of pig that was raised for flavor, not fashion. A century or two ago you’d have found Red Wattle pork on tables in New Orleans where they were a popular pig, sporting meat that could pair well with the region’s full-flavored cooking. Today you might find Red Wattle in a few restaurants in New York and a couple other lucky cities. There has been almost no supply for home cooks.” Zingermans

SANDSPUR FARMS “We hope that when you taste our pork that you can taste the difference that humanely raised pork makes in the meat. We enjoy pork tasting like pork used to taste. And hope you do too. Since Friday is National Dessert Day, and being hog farmers, we will have samples of our “Pig Pickin’ Cake.” Orders of $25 or more gets you a special dessert bag! You don’t want to miss this! Also, be sure and look at our dinner & breakfast meat bags.”

Market at Dothan is OPEN

This Week:

Just when we thought we couldn’t bear the heat anymore we woke up to a cool, pleasant morning this week and the whole region let out a long collective sigh . . . fall has finally come to the Wiregrass!

And with it the Market is resuming weekly sales. We hope you are as excited as we are. One of the things we have done in hopes of helping everyone stay on top of the market schedule is to post it on our homepage. So anytime you are unsure when you can or can’t order, it’s there for you.

Viki Richter has provided us a GREAT article about egg production this week and several vendors have stuff going on. We hope you’ll enjoy their efforts.


Feathers & Eggs

Seems everyone loves fresh farm eggs, they are tasty, prettier than plain old store bought white eggs and fresher too! While you can buy eggs all year at the grocery stores that is not easily the case for farm fresh eggs. Chickens like mammals shed seasonally but for chickens they shed their feathers in what is called molting. During the early fall chickens start their molts getting ready for the cold winter with a fresh set of feathers. (Our place looks like a massive pillow fight took place!!!) Because of the molting the energy needed to put on new feathers takes away from the egg production which is greatly decreased or stops altogether leading to a shortage of eggs. Laying resumes anywhere from a month to three months after they have new feathers. The grocery store eggs are available all year long because chickens lay and molt according to how much daylight- longer days more eggs! So factory farms leave the lights on 24/7 fooling the chickens which shortens their lives, they need to have down time just like we do!

Cool temperatures invite us to enjoy the season by dining outdoors like they do in Norway during their short summers. Rustic décor such as this can be easily transitioned to Christmas by replacing pumpkins and berries with poinsettias and greenery.

RICHTER FARMS Pastured Red Wattle Pork. Red Wattle is an old heritage breed that does not do well in today’s mega-farm agricultural environment, but thrives in pastures living in a family farm environment. …”red wattles produce what is possibly the best tasting pork in the world. In blind taste tests, they have bested many other breeds of pig. Their meat is deep red and interlaced with rich veins of fat. When cooked the fat liquefies, imbuing the meat with moisture and a complex broth that seems perfectly balanced to appeal to every carnivorous neuron that still pulses in our primitive brain centers. To eat properly roasted red wattle pork unadorned by spices and condiments is to partake of one of the greatest and purest culinary delights” Greenfire Farms

SANDSPUR FARMS We have added more meat bundles! If you’re wanting to split a half with a friend or family member, we will be more than glad to divide it evenly between the two. Even if we need to throw in an extra pack of sausage or bacon. Don’t hesitate to email or call me if you have any other questions. As for the winter veggies, they are looking good.  We missed the hail storm that Marianna received last weekend so we’re blessed on that. We are looking forward to the collards, mustard and turnip greens. Not to mention the sweet carrots and other veggies. We will also be planting some spinach just as soon as it cools off a little bit more. Thank you again for ordering from our family farm. Be sure and like our Facebook page for exciting updates.

Late Breaking Market Special


Talk about a DEAL!

This just came in from Sandspur Farms.

“I have two half hogs available this Friday. They will come vacuum packed. All of the popular cuts like smoked link sausage, smoked bacon, chops, ribs, cubed pork and smoked hams for the upcoming holiday season; let’s not forget about the bones to flavor upcoming winter greens. Special price for this week only $3 per pound on hanging weight of 127.50 pounds. Total for one half is $382.50. Roughly 100 lbs of meat! If you averaged individual price of $7/lb that would cost $700, you’re saving over $300!!”

Get Your Game On!

Alabama weekends are made for football! With high school games on Friday evenings, college and pro games on weekends and those memorable trips for Troy, Alabama or Auburn games there’s no shortage of good clean sports entertainment in the fall.

The problem with “game days” is the temptation to indluge in typical game day bad eating habits. We don’t want that. We want to have our fun and treat ourselves right in the process.

To that end this Market newsletter is dedicated to healthy football party and tailgate food. We hope you’ll find something you can take the ball and run with.

Be sure to check out our vendor notes this week. There are new products and fall tweaks on existing products, Most is very good . . . but we are sadly saying goodbye to friends.

Goodbye August . . .

Vendor Spotlight

Within the context of the Market, its easy to think of our Vendors in terms of the products they provide. For example, I say “Angie”, you think “Pasta”. I say “Casablanca”, you think “Beef”. I can just about guarantee that when I say “Aughtmon” you won’t think “Kittens”! But kittens it is and Lee has something special going on this week. I hope you’ll support him in this charity drive and stock up on some super good stocking stuffers, and maybe even spoil yourself some in the process!

photo courtesy of cat101.org about preparing homemade cat food

“From time to time I like to raise money or collect donations for a good cause. I have recently started supporting a local organization called ‘Kitty Kottage’. They are a local shelter for housing kittens until they find their forever homes. They depend greatly on donations from the public in order to buy food and pay all veterinary bills associated with keeping them healthy and getting them spayed and neutered. They are one of few, possibly the only one locally that will take in kittens. They are the nicest and cleanest shelter I have seen. They are on facebook if you wanna see what they are all about, Kitty kottage Dothan. This week I will donate $2 from every bar of soap that I sell to Kitty kottage. Help me raise at least $100 to show our support and how much we care about God’s animals. Thank you for your support and God bless you! “

And Late Breaking News from Sandspur . . .”We will join forces with Aughtmon 1918 in his support of Kitty Kottage. We will also donate a portion of our sales. Just as long as it doesn’t get back to my dog Luke that despises cats. :)”

Free Popsicles with Market Order this Week*

Come on Down!

A couple of years ago I happened upon an adorable ice cream bicycle with an equally adorable guy in vintage type garb selling popsicles at my credit union on a hot day. Thus began an ongoing friendship with Brett Smith who is a true food artisan. So when the Market stumbled on the fact that one of our pickup days is a national POPSICLE day . . . . how could you pass up an opportunity like that?



This Friday Brett will be at Dothan Nurseries from 10am to 11:30 am with Cherry Popsicles and some of his other wonderful flavors. And the treat’s on us. If you place an order with the Market this week your cherry popsicle is free provided you can pick your order up before he has to leave.*

It’s silly. We know. But hey, it’s August in Alabama and who says we can’t have fun? So bring the kiddos or the parents or the spouse or the friend. Enjoy the beauty of the nursery. Stop by and see us at the Market tent, then meet Brett and discover why Dothan Ice Cream Company is one of Dothan’s best up and coming businesses. If you want to learn more check out dothanicecream.com.

*Orders must be picked up no later than 11:30 to get free popsicle. Limited to one popsicle per customer.
