2024 FAYETTEVILLE DELIVERY SERVICE

In the past, our nonprofit partner Seeds that Feed graciously delivered online market orders to Fayetteville addresses. However, their funds for this service have run out. Therefore we added delivery service as an item, to help their volunteers cover the expenses of delivery to Fayetteville addresses.

Delivery will still be FREE for the following Fayetteville customers:
-SNAP customers
-customers 70 or older
-customers who are not able to drive to pickup location on Thursday
—customers who already donate each time they receive a delivery

If you are a customer in any of the above categories, please put “Free Delivery” in the comments as you finish ordering.

NOTE: DELIVERY ORDERS (PAID AND FREE) MUST FORWARD THE ORDER EMAIL TO delivery@seedsfeed.org AFTER YOUR ORDER IS COMPLETE. That insures that you are on the delivery list. Thank you.

If you request delivery and you are not in the above categories, please choose delivery service as one of your items when you order. You can find this item under Delivery and the cost will be no more than $7 for each delivery date. This service will be charged to your order. We make sure that Seeds that Feed receives all of those fees.

INFO YOU ALREADY KNOW IF YOU HAVE ORDERED BEFORE:

DRIVEBY PICKUP TIME AT THE LIBRARY OUTDOOR PARKING LOT is THURSDAY afternoon from 4:30-5:30. Note: if you already know that you cannot make it by 5:30 pm Thursday and you want to order this week, just reply to this email or text 479-935-5111 and we will work with you on a plan.

SEARCHING TIP: On large categories such as baked goods or meats click on the category to get a drop down of specific items in that category.

HOW TO CHECK ITEMS FROM A PARTICULAR SELLER: Scroll down on left side until you see “show specific growers”. If all the boxes are checked, you can click on “reverse all” then click the boxes on or off of those sellers you want to see. Then click “show specific growers” again.

BUYING TIP: If you see items that you want but not much available, order and pay and then log back in and continue shopping. Your orders will be combined and you will only be charged once.

SNAP CUSTOMERS ONLY: you may choose pay at pickup and bring your EBT card on Thursday. We will swipe your card and match up to $100 of your order. NOTE: please do not bring tokens or match cards to pickup at the online market.

NOTE: New customers and new orders always welcome—no minimum order required, no weekly order required.

TIPS:

1) Sellers sometimes add more products later in the ordering period, so be sure to check back. The product list changes each week, even from the same seller, so it’s worth exploring the categories you are interested in.

2) Multiple orders from you at different times will be automatically combined into one order before pickup and you will only be charged once.

PICKUP LOCATION:
The OUTDOOR parking area at the south end of the new part of the Fayetteville Public Library. Follow the line of cars towards the building and stay in your car in line while we get your order.

Thank you for your continued support of the online market.

Foothills Market:  The Market is Open!


At Foothills Market, we are seasonally-based. This means products are available on the market when they are in season, but once the season for a certain product is past, that product will disappear from the market. For example, the hot weather is hard on garden peas, and they will soon be out of season and off the market. However, the joy of seasonal produce means there will be something to replace them – we have new potatoes and onions this week!

Shop the market between now and 5:00 p.m. Wednesday to get your fresh, in-season vegetables, as well as beef, jams, or baked goodies. We’ll have your order ready for pickup on Thursday afternoon.

Eat something fresh this week – while it’s in season!

We hope it’s the best of both worlds. Come by on Tuesday and bring some friends! We would love to help you create a new customer account or talk about our participation in the SNAP and Double up Food Bucks programs!

Safe and Sound Soap Co.: Summer is coming up, so be sure to check out my Car Air Fresheners for those hot summer days. You should also consider stocking up on my Laundry Soap, so you can keep your clothes smelling fresh and clean this season. I have Lemon Eucalyptus, Orange Bergamot, Lavender, and Lemon Lavender Mint. Looking for a gift that anyone can use? Add one of my Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer Sprays to your cart! It is made with 70% alcohol, filtered water, and my special blend of Argon oil and Jojoba oil, which are excellent for your skin and help keep a healthy moisture barrier on your skin. Just a few sprays, and it kills 99.99% of germs without causing your skin to dry and crack. I also have plenty of my Small Batch Citrus Bar soaps in stock as well as my Room Freshener Sprays that come in Orange Bergamot and my Laundry day scent. They are perfect to leave in your guest room or bathroom, or to give as a gift!

Calico Farms: Gluten-free fans, I’ve got you again this week with our chocolate crinkle cookies. They’re organic & dairy-free, as always, and loaded with antioxidant rich raw cacao powder & heart-healthy coconut oil. Pick up a 6-pack today & satisfy that chocolate craving guilt-free!

Heading out of town for Memorial Day weekend? Grab a bag (or 2!) of our delicious nuts for convenient snacking on the road or at home. We have cinnamon sugared pecans, sweet & spicy pecans & our peanut-free herbed spicy mixed nuts – a perfect blend of cooling rosemary, tarragon, dark brown sugar with a hint of cayenne & delicious grass-fed butter. Truly one-of-a-kind flavors that you can’t find elsewhere!

Special News from CS3 Farms: Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farms): It is with greatful heart that we are leaving the market feeling blessed with all the relationships we have made through the years. Through prayer and much consideration we have decided this is the time to step back while we pursue new avenues that God has opened up for us. Our last week will be the 22nd. Thank you for the many years of suport. We will be availabe for any needs if you just reach out to us directly through our FB page at CS3 Farms or email at herbs@cs3farms.com. Special listing, we will have bambo sticks available before we leave.

WELCOME Foster Bakery: New to our Market, highly recommended by NashPhilly.

Do you like bread? Enjoy this staple guilt-free by buying a whole wheat loaf from me. Unlike many commercial bakeries that use bromated/carcinogenic ingredients, I use simple and minimally processed ingredients to make a delicious and filling bread. Bread made from whole wheat flour contains greater amounts of protein, fiber, and vitamins. 2-3 slices meets 15% of your daily iron needs and over a quarter of the recommended fiber intake. Whole wheat bread is also a great food to aid weight loss (ask me: I lost 20 pounds after I started making this bread)! This loaf makes approximately 10-12 slices + 2 endpieces. Slice as you go for best quality (unless if you plan to freeze it). Since my bread doesn’t contain any preservatives, it’s best to consume or freeze within 3-4 days of picking up. The bags are freezer friendly.

Emerald Acres: Delicious Lettuce Mix and Sugar Snap Peas, Spring Mix Flowers and Strawberries.

Tailwynds Farm: We have some new cuts of beef available. We have a Picanha Roast Cut. This cut can be grilled to perfection, has wonderful flavor and a similar texture to a sirloin steak and to top it off try a homemade fresh strawberry pie for dessert. If you have not tried a Tomahawk steak we still have some available. We have had amazing reviews on these cuts with customers saying it was the best and most tender steak they have ever eaten. Fire up those grills and give one a try. We have many crops already growing and plan to have all the farm fresh vegetables available as soon as they start coming in.

Peyton’s Plants: Several varieties of Tomato Plants available, all grown using Organic Methods.

NashPhilly: Several prepared items in the Soup, Seasonal Side Dishes and Noodles, Pasta, Italian Sauses Category. Perfect for your upcoming Mother’s Day meal or this weeks meals.

Pinky’s Micro’s:
New Spring blend of power packed microgreens…Romaine, Golden Leeks, Lemon Basil and Red Panda Sorrell.
Also check out our other Micro’s – Basic Salad Mix, Broccoli, Cilantro, Pea, Radish, Red Amaranth, Sunflower and Wheat Grass Shots.

Oakview Farm:
We will have some of its customer favorites this week: Scandanavian Buttermilk Sourdough Bread, Artisan Sourdough bread, Roasted Strawberry Jam, and Homemade Peppermint Patties! Our hens have been laying like crazy, so we have fresh eggs, too.
From our garden, we have our Salad Greens Mix, Cabbage, Rainbow Swiss Chard, and Spinach. We don’t use any chemical fertilizers or pesticides on our produce, so you know it’s good for you and the environment.

Quarter Spring Farm: has all the affordable luxury that you need this spring. From our moisturizing soaps to our delicious meats and eggs, we have all the goodies to pamper you. You work hard, so treat yourself to an incredible dining experience with our lamb or chicken. It’s healthier and tastier than conventionally grown meats, and better for the planet, too. Our amazing goat milk soaps and lotions will leave your skin feeling like you just dropped 2 grand at a high end spa. You deserve nice things, so let us provide them to you.

Kumaika Coffee:
If you have not started your morning with our Coffee, you are missing out! We have Dark, Medium and Light Roasted Beans. We are a Certified USDA Organic Product provider. We have a small coffee roaster business. We specialize in roasting and crafting small batches of organic, high altitude single origin and fair trade coffee beans. We bring the coffee beans directly from Nicaragua and roast small batches in our home located in Lascassas TN. We have Beans and/or Ground Coffee available or can’t decide order our Sampler of all 3.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: Several items ready to plant in cooler weather. Herbs, Ferns, Hosta and Shrubs.

Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!

Head back to the market page, and your order might still be there waiting for you to check out! If you have any trouble or questions at all, we are here to help; simply reply to this email.

Once you place an order, be on the lookout for the order reminder email on Wednesday with further pickup and payment notes. Thanks for your support!
