Come on In!!! 10/10/2014

cropped-cornmgm_edited-1.jpg

Just in case you missed it last week, we’ve moved INDOORS  to the Parish Hall, located at the rear of the church green. Although it’s been a wonderful summer for the MGM, filled with great weather and an abundance of produce and all of the other products that you have come to expect from our crew of dedicated vendors, we are excited about this move. It can be a bit grueling when it’s cold and damp outside and you need to basically stand in one place for three hours. We’re hoping that you will  continue to come see us, shop, hang out, and have a great time at the market this and all of the remaining weeks to come. We’ll be inside until mid November with a great selection of remaining summer produce, meats, baked goods, eggs, maple products, and fall produce like winter squash, pumpkins, apples, potatoes, and more.

Here’s a list of scheduled vendors and their products for the week:

Udder Merry Mac will have great lettuces, herbs, raspberries, and other goodies.

Hydroponic lettuce from Utter Merry Mac Farm

Always Somethin’ Farm will be bringing their regular goat milk soap and cream products,  prize winning garlic, and garlic braids. Chris and Mike tell me that they may have RASPBERRIES again this week. They’ve had them the past few weeks, and they’ve sold out quickly so, if you want them, get there pronto.

Hillstone will be back this week with their quality beef, other meats, and great hot-dogs; you won’t find this type of dog or anything like them in any store.

Herb Corner will be bringing beautiful fall flower arrangements this week. They partner with Keeney Farm for their pumpkins, and the flowers come from their own cutting gardens. They should also have Swiss Chard, fresh cut herbs, tomatoes (red and green), and butternut squash. They will also, for the next two weeks, be selling Liz’s great jams and jellies from Yorkshire Meadows.

Shannon and Erin will be at the Glenfiddich booth with lots of baked goods—breads, cookies, biscotti, etc. They may also have fresh salsa (red and green). If you like a good cup cake or cinnamon bun, stop by their booth, say hello and purchase yourself a wonderful treat.IMG_0225

Basically Bagels will also be here this week with great bagels and more, including bags of bagel chips and great BIG chocolate chip cookies.

Keeney Farm will have our usual fall flair of pumpkins, gourds, winter squash, and ornamental corn. They’ll also have potatoes, peppers, egg plant, onions, cabbage, and a few summer squash. Ask Cheryl about blue, pink, and white pumpkins. 

kenney

Between Two Rivers will be bringing great maple syrup, maple cream, and other maple treats.

Yorkshire Meadows will not be there the first two weeks of indoor market BUT you’ll be able to pick up Liz’s fine jams and jellies available at THE HERB CORNER  table.

Running bear will be back this week with a large assortment of summer and fall  produce, lamb, rabbit, sausage, and chicken cuts. They’ll also have concord grape concentrated syrup in pint containers. Stop at their table and see what other surprises they might have this week. If you wish to have a great bird on the table for Thanksgiving stop and speak to these folks. They can supply you with a whole or even part of a bird, if you get on their list.cliff

The folks from Bohlayers Orchards will be returning the week with more great apples and pears. While you’re there you might want to ask them about their operation and their natural growing methods.pears

Hope to see you at the MGM located at the Saint James Episcopal Church Parish Hall located in Mansfield, Pa. on Wellsboro Street, one block east of the downtown light. Look for our signs.

Good Weather Karma!!! 9/26/2014

Sadly, this will be the last scheduled OUTDOOR MARKET of the season before we head inside to the PARISH HALL next week for the INDOOR MARKET, and it looks to be another great sunny day. The Good Weather Karma continues. While it might not have been the warmest or even the sunniest summer on record, we have had mostly great weather for the outdoor MGM this season. There was that one day however, early in the season, when we had to bail a bit early when things, including a tent, started blowing across the green.  But hey, we all survived to tell the tale, and thanks to you and the great weather, we’ve enjoyed a wonderful outdoor season at the market. logo-sunshine

If the great weather isn’t enough to entice you to market this week, we’re hoping all of the great entertainment, door prizes, produce, meats, and baked goods will be. There will be a colorful abundance of summer and fall fruit, produce, and more, all available under bright blue skies. We hope that you’ll come on down and bask in the glow with us one last time before we head INDOORS on October 3rd.  We can only tempt our Good Weather Karma for so long. Not to panic, you’ll still be able to find most of the same vendors that you’ve been visiting and getting to know all season long.

Did I mention door prizes? We are going to give away a couple of MGM Tees and a couple of MGM aprons as door prizes this Friday. You can pick up a raffle ticket at the market booth, one per person please, anytime before 5:15 p.m. We’ll draw names from the hat at 5:30 p.m. and award the prizes to the lucky winners. All winners must be present at the time of the drawing.This is one way of saying thank you for your ongoing support of the MGM.1.bmp

We will be featuring Folk Spirit as our last musical guest of the season this week at the music tent. Bill, John, and Ross have been rock steady in all of their appearances at the MGM this season, and I expect this week to be as great as the rest. Music starts at 4:30 and goes till 6:00. Come down and let these guys know how much you’ve appreciated their music and dedication to the MGM as they close out the 2014 outdoors season. Oh, almost forgot, if they ask for request, which they will, ask them to play “ I Dream of Columbus” by Mary Black; it’s one of their favorites.

The Market Cafe and the Hot Cart will both be absent this week. Plan accordingly.

If you haven’t done so please consider following the link below to fill out a survey that has been prepared by New View Farm, a local grower with an interest in coming to market next season. This will be the last week that the survey will be available, and it must be completed by October 1, 2014. We’re hoping that all of you will participate in the survey since all of the collected data will be shared with MGM and will be helpful in helping us help you in our future planning. Be assured that any info that you share will remain confidential; you will become just another statistic. Ha! Just what you wanted, right?

If you’re in the area, stop at the MGM booth, say hello, PICK UP YOUR TICKET FOR THE DOOR PRIZES, and check out our stash of goodies.  We’ll be hawking the new 2014 t-shirts in different colors and styles. We’ll also have older MGM T-shirts, aprons, and MGM $5.00 GIFT CERTIFICATES that can be used at any vendor booth (great gift idea). All proceeds from sales and donations go to making the MGM work. You’ll also be able to enjoy great freshly brewed cup of coffee, on the house, courtesy of our friends at the Night and Day Coffee Shop, just up the street. They keep the wheels rolling for some of us folks at the MGM.  Thanks!

So,Whatta Ya Think? 9/19/2014

It’s a question that many of us frequently get asked, and, unfortunately, it’s quite often asked in a rhetorical manner. It can be frustrating, to say the least. Well, this time it’s different. We’re asking that same question here, but we really do want to know what you think—really, we do! Please consider following the link below to fill out the survey that has been prepared by New View Farm, a local grower with an interest in coming to market next season. At MGM we’ve been brainstorming with all the vendors recently and thinking about what we need to do to stay in tune with you, the consumer and supporter of the MGM, for the future. We’re hoping that most of you will participate in the survey since all of the collected data will be shared with MGM and will be helpful in helping us help you. Be assured that any info that you share will remain confidential; you will become just another statistic. Ha! Just what you wanted, right?

We will be featuring Ellis Callahan as our musical guest this week at the music tent. Ellis is a gifted and very talented performer with a number of recordings to his credit. He has appeared in the past as an advocate for HAVEN (Helping Abuse and Violence End Now), Tioga County’s only domestic and sexual violence center.  He was scheduled to do the same this year, but, unfortunately, Haven had to cancel; fortunately, Ellis will be with us. Do yourself a BIG favor, check out his website, listen to his music and get your butt to MGM this Friday to see this man in person.

Oh My Fur and Whiskers, I’m Late, I’m late, I’m Late!!! 9/12/2014

Yep, just like the White Rabbit, I’m late. So much to do and so little time, I’m sure that many of you can relate. Given the fact that Alice in Wonderland was written so many years ago and the “I’m Late” stuff was already in place suggests to me that it’s not exactly a modern day distress. But hey, then again, it’s better late than never, so the saying goes.

                                         http://youtu.be/ZOLpCWlsCjw

Here’s a list of scheduled vendors and their products for the week:

First, we’d like to give a big welcome aboard to Heather and Dave, the folks from Bohlayers Orchards, making their first appearance at the MGM this week.You can stop at their booth, pick up pears, see what else might be available and welcome them to market. While you’re there ask them about their operation and their natural growing methods.

Here’s a bit of info suppled by Heather. “Do you enjoy canned pears? Do you loathe peeling all of those pears? Then we have great news for you! Pears may be canned WITH the peel on!!! Wash them well, cut them using an apple corer/slicer, then can as usual. This keeps the nutrition of the peel with the fruit. And we do not use harsh chemicals. This is a win, win, win situation!!! Stop in soon for Bartlett pears while supplies last!” pears
