Market News

WELCOME TO USLG CUSTOMERS

THE MARKET IS OPEN FOR ORDERING!
FOR uslg Greenville ORDERS: PICK-UP IS TUESDAY 4-6 PM AT SWAMP RABBIT CAFE AND GROCERY OR ON WEDNESDAY 8-8 AT WHOLE FOODS MARKET.
FOR CLEMSON ORDERS: NEW ClEMSON PICKUP DATE, TIME, AND LOCATION FOR THE MONTH OF APRIL! JOIN US AT THE CLEMSON FARM FRESH MARKET

Order today for pickup between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 10, 2013 at the Clemson University Farm Fresh Market, located in front of the Student Union in Cox Plaza.

We are participating in Clemson’s Agricultural Services Farm Fresh Market, which takes place Wednesday afternoons through the month of April. We hope you will enjoy picking up your Clemson Locally Grown orders from the market this month, and maybe you’ll meet a few new growers at the same time!

As always, we at Upstate Locally Grown are pleased to offer you plenty of fresh, local proteins and produce, as well as eggs from Putney Farm, Happy Cow milk products, Swamp Rabbit baked goods, and much, much more.

Have your ordered greens from Spurgeon Farms lately? Not only are these fresh collards and kale tender and delicious, they are chopped and packaged in a gallon bag. That means all you have to do is rinse and cook. Better than the grocery store on every level! Be sure to click on the vegetables category and the greens category. Remember, that if you are looking for a specific item, you can type in part of the name and our software will bring up all products with the letters you type. Look on the Market page, about 1/8 the way down, center. Try it, it is fun!

Please encourage your friends, family, and co-workers to join you. It is always more fun to share the experience of fresh, sustainable local foods with like-minded friends!

OUR CAUSES:
Upstate Locally Grown Market *Donates a percentage of our income to the Broken Wing Farm 501-3C project. Bill welch (Welch and Son Farm) and volunteers are training young men who are autistic to plant and grow food the organic way! This is a wonderful outlet for these young men in a low-stimulus environment out in the fresh air and sunshine! I can’t think of a better way to provide a healthy environment and a sense of accomplishment for these young men!
*Clemson Locally Grown
donates 3 percent of our orders off the top to Clemson Montessori School, in return for use of their school parking lot as a drop-off location. We also appreciate the helpful hands of CMS market volunteers. Feel free to lend your hands, if you have a moment to do so. Clemson Montessori School is cultivating our future artists, leaders, and innovators in a system which encourages young minds to think for themselves in a creative atmosphere.

Donna’s Corner

Friend and local food lover Jess O’Neal Bayne made me aware of this upcoming event, and I wanted to share it with you. There is an event happening May 25 in Greenville and many other places all around the world actually. It is called March on Monsanto. This is a march and rally in response to the “Monsanto Protection Act,” recently signed by President Obama as a part of HR 933.

If you value the quality of your food and reject genetically engineered crops, I encourage you to lend your support to this event.
