Farmers Market Wednesday, August 7th!

Greetings all –

This week we will have lots of amazing produce and products at the market!

A couple fun recognition moments for the market this past week:

  1. Our very own spokes model for Hankra Jewel, Miss Stacy Murray, won BEST JAZZ VOCALIST at the Detroit Jazz Festival last week! Be sure to come out and congratulate her on such an award.
  2. The Lucy Ann Lance Show graciously hosted me for a little plug for the market – the sound byte is here. I missed giving a BIG shout out to the 5HF for providing a grant to the market every year – they help do so much for our market and for that I am extra grateful!

This coming Saturday there will be Yoga on the Lawn from 7-8am. Don’t miss a gentle practice for all ages with miss Sue. 

And let me know if you are interested in purchasing tickets for our 5 Healthy Towns Fabulous Feast on September 22! It is a delicious fundraiser to drum up dollars for all the 5 Healthy Towns farmers markets! Tickets can also be purchased via eventbrite.

Market details this week are as follows:

When: every Wednesday from 1-5pm through the end of October (we then move indoor to the Washington St. Education Center for November and December!)

Where: Corner of M52 and Old US 12. There is plenty of parking near the businesses on the south side. Please keep the north spaces and those closest to the bank open for bank patrons.

Who: Lovely humans working to steward healthy community!

**GOOD TIMES KETTLE CORN: Kettle corn in three different sizes! Delicious.

BILL WEBER: gorgeous wood worked goods. Don’t miss this man’s craftsmanship!

LAVENDER AND HONEY: For REAL this time (I thought she was coming last week) amazing body care products made with local and organic ingredients. Lip balms, deodorants, salve, bug spray and more!

KAPNICK ORCHARD: BERRIES!, first of the apples, nut butters, sweet breads, treats and more.

GOLDEN FLEECE FARM: sustainably pasture raised beef, chicken eggs and honey!

PREGITZER FARM: Back for the season, Wade will have gads of sweet corn for sale this week. Don’t miss him.

NEEDLELANE FARMS: local seasonal and sustainably raised veggies; spinach, lettuce, kale, chard, salad mix, beets, fennel, kohlrabi, cabbage, arugula, herbs, green onions and leeks! Eggs and honey to boot.

JAM MAN: with great sadness we will lose Brian until September. His garden calls and the demand of two markets is too much. Look for him at the Coldwater Farmers Market.

HANKRA JEWEL: gorgeous hand made silver and copper wearable and wall art! 

STONEHEARTH BAKERY:
breads and cookies all made from scratch and without preservatives. Pepperoni rolls, cinnamon rolls, cheese breads, cookies and more.

LA BAGUETTE: a small bakery specializing in French baked goods, Lisa and Suzanne invite you to come and sample their products! They will have baguettes, rye-sesame boules, madeleines, sablés, honey roasted peanut cookies, gâteau breton, sorta di ricotta e ciocolate, gâteau aux fruits, brioche, and savory tarts
 
MARKS FARM: One of our veteran venders! Deb brings a host of lovely seasonal vegetables.

JACOB’S FRESH FARM: Local, seasonal veggies, eggs, and honey.

SWEET AND SALTY COOKIE COMPANY: Jeff and Jocelyn bring delicious homemade cookies: chocolate chip, M&M, double dip chocolate chip, store’s, dark chocolate pecan, maple oatmeal raisin, peanut butter and snickerdoodle! YUM.

BRIELAND-SHOULTZ FARM:  Greg and Joan offer free-range eggs, pasture raised poultry, and grass fed beef at both Saturday and Wednesday markets! They also raise chemical free, seasonal veggies and CSA. Goats milk soap and jam with the occasional sourdough pepper their table throughout the season.

BORDINE FARMS: (maybe) Dahlia bouquets!

AWAKENED PROVISIONS: Kelsey will have her granola, dried tea, gluten free baked goods (that are ridiculously tasty) and sparkling vinegar tonics. 
 
PARA PARA CREAMERY: Po will be offering his magic through cheddar, young gouda, feta, garlic feta spread and chipotle feta spread (yes, this is a thing and it is SO good)

K’S ACRE’S: seasonal veggies, fruit, cinnamon and traditional maple syrup and more.

AFFEATHERMATIONS (weather permitting): Joan brings her smile and style to her beautiful nature inspired art pieces – that are just as functional as they are easy to look at. 

SMELLZ SO GOOD:  Kimberly and Carlton are bringing slow burning soy wax candles and wax melts to both the Saturday and Wednesday Markets! Ask for a smell of all their flavors – they are amazing.

DEXTER FOLSOM: hand crafted blue bird boxes and bird feeders. 

PAPER BEAD ELEGANCE: lovely hand crafted paper beaded earrings! 

As always, we are ever so grateful for the City of Chelsea for their support and the Chelsea State Bank for their outstanding open arms. This Wednesday market sure is special. See you there!
