Dear Green Fork Farmers Market Customers,

Congratulations to Tammy Graham, who won the drawing for our market bag of goodies at the Dig In! Food and Farming Festival. Thanks to everyone who entered the drawing, and welcome to our market! We also want to thank all of you who attended the festival and helped to make it such a success.

NEW this week—Black Sheep Ranch joins us with lamb, naturally grown and grass fed. No antibiotics, hormones, or preservatives. Several cuts are available this week, with more coming next week. You will love all they have to offer in delicious, healthy, pasture raised lamb.

It’s time to start planting the spring garden! This week Green Fork Farm offers for the first time a collection of popular garden seeds from Clear Creek Seeds in Tahlequah. These seeds are open pollinated, non-GMO, untreated, and grown without chemical fertilizers or pesticides. If you aren’t sure what to plant when, the Garden Planner Planting Guide will help you plan the whole season with planting and harvesting dates. Get started now!

This week we also have greens, honey, bath and body care products, baked goods, olives, olive oil, eggs, chicken, pork, and microgreens available for preorder. Place your order by clicking on the market link below. Click on the shopping cart next to each item you wish to order and fill up your basket. Submit your order by Monday at midnight, then pick up and pay on Wednesday from 4-7 pm in the Breezeway at Nightbird Books, 205 W. Dickson St. in Fayetteville. If you aren’t able to place an order, you can stop by the market on Wednesday to see what our farmers have available for sale from their tables.

We look forward to seeing you then!

Dear Green Fork Farmers Market Customers,

NEW—Check out Dandelion Peace Flower’s mint soap, herbal deodorant, and body oils. You will love these wonderful additions to their locally crafted, natural bath and body care products. Don’t miss Blue Pony Bakery’s cowgirl cookies and olive oil rosemary bread and all their other delicious goodies. Some are gluten-free, everything is made fresh to order, and it’s all delicious!

If you haven’t yet, you also need to try Figgieville’s amazing olives and olive oil. These are so fresh, you won’t believe the taste. Figgieville gets them directly from their partner farm in California where the olives are grown organically. The olives are brined rather than cured with lye, and the olive oil is cold-pressed and VERY fresh. This is top-notch stuff. Figgieville also makes a gluten-free almond torte that we thought could not be improved, but after tasting their pecan torte, it’s a struggle to choose a favorite!

Beyond Organics still has winter greens this week. Also available for preorder—honey, eggs, microgreens, chicken and pork. We hope to have spring greens coming on soon, and next week Black Sheep Ranch will join our market with lamb. Green Fork Farm will also offer beef.

Go ahead and place your order between now and Monday at midnight, then you can pick up and pay for your order on Wednesday from 4-7 pm in the Breezeway at Nightbird Books, 205 W. Dickson St. Remember the best selection is available if you preorder, but you can also buy from the farmers’ tables at the market, indoors out of the wind and cold.

Thanks to all of you who visited us at the Dig In! Food and Farming Festival this weekend and helped make it such a big success. We were excited to see you there and really appreciate your support of the market and of the festival!

See you on Wednesday.
