News from the SVGM


Indoor market hours 2pm-5pm

  Our outdoor market season begins
    next Friday, May 3!

                             
Hi everyone~

Yesterday morning while working outside, I was filled with the realization of the beauty of the glorious Spring we're having. It has been one of the loveliest I can remember in recent years, with comfortable temperatures and rainfall, and a gradual greening that has seemed to last for weeks. The shadows of the trees are filling in as the leaves unfurl, the birdsong is a symphony, the smells of freshly dug earth and freshly mowed grass, the softness of the warmer air ~~~ all bring a visceral quality to the season that touches all the senses and urges us to go outdoors.  I've not been too lulled, however, into thinking the cold is totally over: indeed, this weekend may hold some frosty overnight temperatures. That last frost still holds sway~~~

Tomorrow is the last indoor market of this spring: next Friday, the SVGM moves outside for its May-October market season.  The market will move outside into the parking area adjacent to Brook Park Pet Supply, and will resume its normal hours of 2-6pm. Many many thanks again to Sharon, owner of Brook Park Pet Supply, for so generously partnering with us to make this indoor market possible, and in such a great location. We appreciate her support so very much; if you ever shop at her store for your pet supplies, be sure to thank her, too. And please do shop there~~ it's a wonderful resource for all things pets: foods, treats, training aids, training classes, and grooming. Sharon's store has been an integral part of the surrounding pet owners' community for a long
time!

Here again is a preview of the vendors for the 2019 SVGM market season:
Cow-a-Hen Farm
Beaver Run Farm
Garden Secrets (last Friday of month)
Stone Meadow Farm
Wild for Salmon (first Friday of each month)
Punako Artisan Hearth
Broadway Acres Farm
Tarsa Family Farm (last half of season)
Weavers Hydroponics
Hidden Branch Farm
Mt NitaNee Kombucha
Orchard Breeze Farm
Clara’s Meadow Flowers and Herbs
Hannah Bahr Farm
Next week's email will include the vendor's products in it; there may be a bit of fluidity (as often happens) as the first month of market progresses. And we're happy to say that Woody Wolfe of Heart to Hand will once again be playing throughout the season. Woody has the ultimate playlist of tunes that bring a great background sound to the activity of the market whenever he plays. We'll let you know via this email of the dates he'll be appearing.

Also, we will return to our business hours of 2-6pm for the outdoor market season, so you'll have an extra hour to get there after work! Mark your calendars to be sure you stop by and celebrate our opening day with us~~~

Always, always, thank you, so very much for all of your continuing support, and for making this indoor market season another successful one. We hope to see you tomorrow~~

Blessings for a bright and lovely Spring!

News from the SVGM



                  Indoor market hours 2pm-5pm                              

Hello everyone~

Tomorrow's full moon accompanies this Spring's holiday weekend of the celebrations of both Passover and Easter. Indeed, in so many ways, Spring brings us a sense of the sacred in its miracle of new beginnings and growth and unfurling from the dormancy of winter.  This has been a rather warm April, and it's doing its job to awaken the plants and warm the ground from which they emerge. This may even be the weekend of the first mowing of lawns ~~~ enjoy that smell of freshly-cut grass! And get out there and dig and plant; there's nothing quite like playing in the dirt~~~

And all of us here at the Susquehanna Valley Growers Market  anxiously await the outdoor market season. The SVGM moves outdoors two weeks from tomorrow on Friday, May 3. Here is a preview of our 2019 vendor lineup:

Cow-a-Hen Farm
Beaver Run Farm
Garden Secrets (last Friday of month)
Stone Meadow Farm
Wild for Salmon (first Friday of each month)
Punako Artisan Hearth
Broadway Acres Farm
Tarsa Family Farm (last half of season)
Weavers Hydroponics
Hidden Branch Farm
Mt NitaNee Kombucha
Orchard Breeze Farm
Clara’s Meadow Flowers and Herbs
Hannah Bahr Farm


Most of our vendors are returning from last year, but we're also welcoming two new ones this season: Clara's Meadow Flowers and Herbs, and Hannah Bahr Family Farm. Clara's Meadow was one of the SVGM's original vendors, and is returning this season with fresh cut flowers and bouquets. Hannah Bahr Farm is a family farm joining us with seasonal produce and other products, all grown and produced on their local farm.
.
These next two Fridays are the last for this winter's indoor market, and you never know what early season produce may appear these days! Visit us these next two Fridays from 2pm to 5pm inside Brook Park Pet Supply. We'll hold you over until the May 3 opening of our outdoor market season!
   
Blessings for a bright and lovely Spring!

A happy Early Spring Thursday to you all~~~ enjoy the peeks of sunshine before tomorrow's Spring rain~~~

And Beaver Run has their outstanding pork, always delicious.

So stop by the indoor market for the best local foods available until the growing and the greening is in full swing; you never know what early season produce may appear these days! Visit us Fridays from 2pm to 5pm through the end of April, in our friendly, sheltered, indoor space inside Brook Park Pet Supply. We're but three weeks away from the May 3 opening of our outdoor market season~~~

News from the SVGM

 Indoor market hours 2-5pm

Hello everyone~

I still forget how excruciating the April wait is, and have to remind myself daily that the frenzied (beautiful) burst of Spring activity will come on strong once it does begin: underneath the landscape in its late-stage dormancy, things are about to wake up. 

Whatever they raise, our farmers are watching things wake up on their farms, too ~~~  soil is being enriched in anticipation of the  seeding of crops, grasses are greening and insects are emerging for their pastured animals and chickens. Despite the fields' sleepy appearance, it's a busy time in the agricultural world.

Be sure to stop by the indoor market for the best local foods available until the growing and the greening is in full swing; you never know what early spring vegetables may appear these days! Visit us Fridays from 2pm to 5pm through the end of April, in our friendly, sheltered, indoor space. We're but four weeks away from the May 3 opening of our outdoor market season~~~
   
Blessings for a bright and lovely Spring!
