PICTURE PERFECT market day COMIN' UP!
Saturday, sunny cool morning in the 60's with an afternoon high of 85 degrees - mix that with an abundance of edible riches plus music by The Ones Improper to shop by or enjoy the morning sip and snack...market magic!
With National Farmers Market Week coming up soon ( August 4-10), we are planning to showcase only OUR producers and share with you all a tractor load of farmers market intel from our friends at the Farmers Market Coalition. All in all, shopping with local, sustainable producers is simply a continuous celebration of the best things in life - good folks, good food and good opportunity for all!
“Farmers markets are the ultimate green sector of the economy. They are stand-out successes in and spurring sustainable economic development.” Bernadine Prince, Co-Director, FRESHFARM Markets, Washington, DC
In a 2015 survey of farmers selling at farmers markets:
One in four farmers selling at farmers markets cultivate land that is protected from commercial development.
Three out of every four say they use practices consistent with organic standards.
48% use integrated pest management, information on the life cycle of pests and their interaction with the environment to manage and prevent crop damage.
81% incorporate cover crops, reduced tillage, on-site composting, and other soil health practices into their operations.
Four out of five discuss farming practices with their customers, educating them about farming and its interactions with the natural environment.
69% sell vegetables, 53% livestock, poultry or eggs, 47% fruits and tree nuts, and 31% value-added products. There is tremendous diversity in the foods and farm products being sold at farmers markets.
We can't wait to see what the 2020 survey says! Let's keep those percentages growing!
POTATOES & GARLIC
Roast em, Mash em, Hash em
The potato and garlic goodness is bountiful this time of year so come on out and grab your taters for your hot or cold side dishes for a fabulous summer meal.
NOW OR LATER?
Taking in the bounty and wanting to bring even more home with you each week? Get the family, the kiddos, or friends together and have meal prep day so that you are able to savor the season ALL year round. Not much of a canner? Here are a few simple ways to store yummies for later.
Always forgetting a last minute gift or wanting to drop a neighbor something special, but just don't have time to bake them up something yummy? We always love to load up on bouquets for our homes, but we also love to have one extra to pass on to someone special or someone who just may need some extra sunshine. Farm fresh flowers are the BEST.
REUSE RECYCLE & COMPOST/BIODEGRADE
We are adding compost bins every week! Let's keep making good stuff out of good food stuff! Bring your compost items to the market and pop them in the Gallins Family Farm bins. Check in with your vendors so that you know what 'compostable plastic looking items' they are using for packaging that may go right in the bin with your other food scraps! More info is available on our website and please do stop by the info booth with any questions or tips to share!
