Opening Day!

open for bus.1Yep, it’s finally here. Come join us for MGM’s start of the 2015 season, our seventh one! Thanks to all of you for your support and participation in making this something that we as a community can be proud of. This is what can happen when a collective group of consumers, vendors, and market volunteers all decide to pay it forward, to do something that matters, not just in our lives, but to others that we may never know. This is a community at work, well done!

We will be inside at the St. James Parish Hall this Friday and each other Friday in April, 3-6 P.M.  On May 1, 2015, we will make the big move to the great outdoors for the summer season.

If you have ever wanted to participate as a vendor or volunteer and wondered what it might entail, check out the info from the drop down menu above. If you have questions please contact us by leaving a comment or call 570-605-0005 and we’ll try to answer them for you.

Vendors of the week:

Running Bear:

Cliff and Margarita be back with frozen smoked turkey, regular turkey, and chicken parts. They will also have an assortment of dried herbs, frozen sauces, pesto, and cooking stocks. Saving the best for last, they will have FRESH CUT SPINACH, Kale, and Chard from their high tunnel which they have over wintered! Some of these greens will be in limited supply so I suggest getting there early!

Herb Corner/Yorkshire Meadows:

That’s right folks, for the next month Diane and Phil from Herbs will be helping out Liz from Yorkshire by marketing her jams, curds, and shortbread cookies at their table.This is lambing season so Liz is quite busy helping those ewes do their work.

lemon & lime curd

Diane and Phil will have a limited amount of fresh micro greens, basil, and thyme this week. They, like the rest of us gardeners are at the mercy of the weather, which hasn’t been very cooperative so far. But, they also have a great high tunnel and just need a week of good weather to start harvesting a great assortment of spring greens. Meanwhile, stop at their table, grab some of Liz’s great products and speak to Diane about your plans and dreams for your own garden. She will be administering free gardening advice, and performing free soils testing.This would be the time to order some of her great starter plants. Looking at the long-range forecast, it looks like some of us might be able to grub up a spring garden patch in a few weeks. Yum, fresh greens! Get a jump start by putting some of Diane’s starter plants in the ground or in large flower pots. You’ll be happy that you did.

Always Somethin’ Farm:

Chris will be on hand with her great goat milk products, soaps, creams, and lotion bars.  They make wonderful gifts, or perhaps you’d like something for yourself.  Stop and say hello, and consider a purchase.

Spring Has Sprung!!! 3/24/2015

Went for a walk with my honey Claire and our dog Maggie this afternoon, lots of signs that spring is actually here. Redwings, robins, boat tailed grackles, and many other birds creating a noise riot of wonderful sounds. Sun and blue sky, a wee bit of a nip still in the air  but you can’t hold back spring, it’s here, it may be finicky for a while so be patient and stay hopefully, we made it thru!

Finally,

Hello, Goodbye! 11/21/2014

cropped-cornmgm_edited-1.jpg

It’s been a long season, starting in early April and now we have only two MGM events left for the year. For this Friday and the next Tuesday Special Market you’ll find us warm, dry, and cozy, INDOORS; at the Parish Hall, located at the rear of the church green. We still have a great selection of meats, baked goods, eggs, and fall produce such as, potatoes, kale, chard, and more. We’re hoping you will come see us, shop for the holidays ahead, say the last of your hellos, and your goodbyes.

We also hope that you’ve had a great time coming to market this season, finding great food and making friends while enjoying the music and sunshine. It seems to have gone by all too quickly. Speaking for all of the vendors, volunteers, and myself; thank you for coming and for keeping it alive. This is what an ongoing community supported project looks like. It makes me proud to be a part of it. We all wish you a great winter; hunker down, stay warm and enjoy all that comes with the seasons. Looking forward to seeing you next spring at the MGM.

Ghost Busting!!! At the MGM 10/31/2014

halloween2

Just in case you missed it, 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 meats, baked goods, eggs, maple products, and fall produce like winter squash, pumpkins, potatoes, and more. Come on down for a frightening good time!
