News from the SVGM

 

Hi everybody~

It is still early Spring: the trees are barely budded and the grass is only beginning to rise, but the eery screams of a red fox in its field a few nights ago reminded me that Nature’s cycle is well under way.  Soon the leafed out trees will muffle the distant chatter of guinea hens and cattle, and provide protected shelter for nests and a glorious canopy for our pleasure. Step outside a minute each day and look around you, listen, watch your dog's nose rise high in the breeze~ this landscape is full of life!

The SVGM outdoor market is only four weeks away~ we will officially move outside to our location along Reitz Blvd. on Friday, May 6, unless Mother Nature throws us a major curveball.

We are looking forward to the 2022 market season and are excited to welcome these new vendors this May: Gnosis Coffee Roasters and Greenwood Valley Wagyu. Be sure to check out their Facebook pages: both are wonderfully unique area producers! 
Gnosis Coffeehttps://www.facebook.com/gnosiscoffeeroasters
Greenwood Valleyhttps://www.facebook.com/greenwoodvalleywagyu

We continue to accept inquiries for new vendors who grow, raise, and/or produce their local products. If you know of farmers or producers who may be interested, please forward our emails or information to them. We appreciate your help in spreading the word!

This week, we expect Tarsa Family Farm, Punako Lane Artisan Hearth and Cow-a-Hen Farm to be at market. Meesh Tarsa will have eggs, beef, and potatoes and dried garlic products. John Punako will have assorted breads, biscotti, granola, brown eggs, and frozen quarts of haluski. 

Bill Callahan will have freshly dressed chickens, freshly smoked ham, and the usual pork products.Feel free to text Bill to preorder: (570) 490-9992.

Hi everybody~

This last week of March has certainly stayed true to the month’s capricious nature! And as opposed to March’s proverbial outgoing lamb, it looks as though April will dawn on the heels of roaring thunderstorms~~~  But the blossoming growth of Spring continues to gain momentum, and soon its exuberant energy will utterly infuse our own spirits, so welcome after the dark cold of Winter!

We are looking forward to theSVGM's outdoor season, and in our effort to grow this little gem of a market, we are welcoming inquiries for new vendors who grow, raise, and/or produce their local products. If you know of farmers or producers who may be interested, please help us and forward our emails or information to them. We appreciate your help in spreading the word!

This week, Tarsa Family Farm, Punako Lane Artisan Hearth and Cow-a-Hen Farm will be at market. Meesh Tarsa will have eggs, beef, and potatoes, and will be taking orders for lamb. John Punako will have assorted breads, his awesome biscotti, granola, and raisin filled cookies; and brown eggs and frozen quarts of haluski.

Bill Callahan will have fresh chicken halves weighing 2.5 - 3.5 pounds each. He will also have bacon, pork sausage, and other pork products. Feel free to text Bill to preorder: (570) 490-9992.

News from the SVGM

 

Hi everybody~

Happy happy Spring to you all! It's a gray day outside but the signs of Spring are all around us: the greening is perceptible, the maple buds are swelling; birds are singing and swooping, and shoots of flowers to come remind us that brilliant color and growth is on the way. 

As I wrote last week, this will be the 18th season for the SVGM, and I’d like to re-post part of that email again~

We are proud to have maintained the high quality and conscientiousness among our vendors that has always set us apart. It truly has been and remains, in the words of a customer, a gem of a market, and we have stayed strong at our core with loyal vendors who appreciate the loyalty of our customer base. 

With a renewed determination, we want to rebuild the Growers Market, and would like your help if you are so inclined! We are welcoming inquiries from vendors who grow, raise, and/or produce their local products. If you know of farmers or producers who may be interested, please forward our emails or information.

 We take great pride in the respectful and friendly relationships our vendors always seem to cultivate between one another~ without each other, there could not be a Growers Market. Please help us put the word out there~ and thank you, always and so very sincerely, for your ongoing support of the SVGM!

This week, Tarsa Family Farm, Punako Lane Artisan Hearth and Cow-a-Hen Farm will be at market. Meesh Tarsa will have eggs, beef, and potatoes, and will be taking orders for lamb.

Hi everybody~

It certainly feels as though Spring has arrived a week early, and how wonderful it feels!  It will officially dawn upon us this Sunday (I believe I jumped the gun in last week's email!), and we eagerly look forward to another outdoor season which begins this May. And here we ask you for your help~~~

The Susquehanna Valley Growers Market is about to enter its 18th year, and we are proud to have maintained the high quality and conscientiousness among our vendors that has always set us apart. It truly has been, and remains, in the words of a customer, a gem of a market. The years have brought retirements and geographical moves of vendors, along with movement into other local markets, but we have stayed strong at our core with loyal vendors who appreciate the loyalty of our customer base. 

With a renewed determination, we want to rebuild the Growers Market, and would like your help if you are so inclined! We are welcoming inquiries from vendors who grow, raise, and/or produce their local products. If you know of farmers or producers who may be interested, please forward our emails or information.

Our current location is one of the best:  we offer close and ample parking, loads of open breathing and walking space, and a peaceful market experience away from traffic noise.  Our vendors set up on a grassy strip with room for their vehicles behind their areas. It is easy and convenient access for both vendor and customer alike. And we take great pride in the respectful and friendly relationships our vendors always seem to cultivate between one another~ without each other, there could not be a Growers Market. Please help us put the word out there~ and thank you, always and so very sincerely, for your ongoing support of the SVGM!

John Punako will have assorted breads, his awesome biscotti, granola, and raisin filled cookies; and brown eggs and frozen quarts of haluski.

Bill Callahan will have freshly cut pork and freshly made Hot Italian sausage this week. He will also have freshly dressed whole chickens, approximately 3 pounds each. Feel free to text Bill to preorder: (570) 490-9992.

Hi everybody~

Rain, wind, snow, sleet~ March has thrown it all at us this week! As we anxiously await this Sunday’s Spring Equinox we must again patiently sit through another Winter storm on our way to welcoming Spring. And yet~~~ this morning’s fog and glaze of frost softened the lightly snow-covered landscape, imbuing that sense of magic that Winter’s beauty can hold: the seasons continue to reaffirm the miracle of life as only Nature can. Enjoy a walk in tomorrow’s snow; it may be this Winter’s last, and next week is looking awfully Spring-like!

Tarsa Family Farm and Punako Lane Artisan Hearth will join Cow-a-Hen Farm at market tomorrow. Meesh Tarsa will have eggs, beef, and potatoes, and will be taking orders for lamb. John Punako will have sourdough bread, cinnamon raisin, soft italian, muesli, and rye; also biscotti, granola, and raisin filled cookies; and brown eggs and frozen quarts of haluski.

Bill Callahan will have freshly dressed chickens plus his usual array of pork products. Feel free to text Bill to preorder: (570) 490-9992.

Ahhhhh! It's finally March ~ Spring is rapidly approaching, and we will gratefully welcome it again this year!

News from the SVGM


Hi everybody~

Bill Callahan continues to man the SVGM's indoor quarters; as the weeks go by and we creep and edge toward Spring, surprise appearances from other farmers and growers often occur. Be sure in any case to stop in to see Bill for his top notch meats and poultry products, and~ always! ~ interesting conversation! 

He will have Smoked Sausage, fresh pork cuts, and fresh roasting chickens tomorrow~ Remember, Bill's conscientiously raised, small-farm meat and poultry is fresh and full of quality nutrition, so important in this day and age and wintry season of colds, flu and Covid.
