Champaign, OH:  Colors Of The Holiday!

Sorry for the second post, but while I was placing my market order, I put in my order for Champaign Berry blackberries, and noticed that Red Raspberries are also listed!! The red and the blue (sort of) in the red, white, and blue (real dark blue)

Anyway, all this to say that berry season will be fading, so why not stock up?

Now, go, enjoy, I will stop pestering you…

Champaign, OH:  Happy Holiday Weekend!

Just checking in, making sure all of you are enjoying the extended weekend, and hoping that you don’t forget that the market is here, open, and ready to take those orders because I know, like always, it gets a bit lost in the shuffle, when there is a Monday holiday!

I just don’t want you to be sad, that you missed out on all of the late season goodness!

Stock up, now!!! You can freeze so much of the seasonal produce, and sweet corn, so you can still have that summer feeling, all winter long…

I’m just sitting here, with coffee, making my own market orders….what about you?

Although strawberry season is long gone, we can still enjoy a little spoonful of strawberry flavor!
