Yep, 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:
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.
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.
Think about scheduling a chunk of time out of your busy life, come on down to the market and relax a spell. It’s Friday, take a break, SPRING’S HERE!
Hope to see you at the MGM located INSIDE THE PARISH HALL at the Saint James Episcopal Church located in Mansfield, Pa. on Wellsboro Street, one block east of the downtown light. Look for our signs.
