The store is open Tuesday - Friday this week for normal hours (12-6). CSA deliveries will be at the usual times this week but no CSA next week (December 29 & 30). We are taking the week off between Christmas and the New Year to spend time with our families, but return to normal operations Tuesday, January 3.
Greetings! We apologize for skipping our newsletter last week, but as you know the holiday season keeps everyone quite busy! We are incredibly grateful for the much-needed rain we’ve received over the last 2 weeks and none of our farmers have reported any serious damage from the storms a couple weeks ago or last week’s frost. While much of the country is taking a break from growing this time of year, we are blessed to live in a region with mild enough weather to make winter a great growing season! Citrus, greens, and squashes are doing well in Florida. Artzi Farms/Pita Queen, LLC are harvesting organic mustards and keeping busy growing organic garlic, onions, and carrots. We can’t wait until those are ready for your CSA boxes!
This week in your box you’ll find Artzi's mustards, zucchini, yellow squash, acorn squash, citrus, onion, and a variety of fresh greens from McClellan Farms, including cabbage, kale, collards, and lacinto.
We’d also like to remind you that we carry a nice variety of local gifts, canned, and specialty food items in our store. CSA members always get 5% off their in-store purchases (just mention you are a CSA member at the register). Now until December 23 we’re taking 15% off existing and build-your-own gift baskets. We also have gift certificates and gift CSA subscriptions available for purchase.
There will be CSA deliveries next week, but we will be taking a week off between Christmas and New Years, so please plan accordingly – NO CSA FOR THE WEEK OF DECEMBER 29.
Christmas is approaching quickly, and in case you haven't been in the store lately, we thought we should share some of our featured new products with you.
We have a variety of specialty food products from our region, including local artisan oils, hot sauces, honeys, dried shiitake mushrooms, locally roasted coffee, jams, syrups, jellies, and more.
We don't just carry food! Check out our selection of Georgia cookbooks and gifts. From Firestarter Farms we have Piggy's Goat's Milk soap and lotions in a variety of scents, made in Donalsonville, GA. We carry handmade soy candles from the Refinery in Bainbridge and from our Cairo beekeepers at Rush Honey Farm we have beautiful little hand-poured beeswax candles. For the pups in your life we have local homemade dog treats from Dudley's Doggie Delights.
Coast & Cotton's kitchen towels are some of our favorite new items in store. Harvest Moon Market is proud to be Coast & Cotton's local retailer for functional and fashionable cotton towels. These heavyweight 100% cotton flour sack towels are processed, designed, and printed right here in the U.S.A. Eco-friendly, water based dyes are used to print each custom, hand drawn design before individually heat curing to ensure colorfastness. They look great but also hold up well to real-life use in the kitchen. We have many more designs to choose from available in our market.
We also build gift baskets and provide free delivery within Bainbridge city limits. Come into the store or give us a call and we'll build you a beautiful gift basket full to the brim with local treats.
Not sure what to get the health-nut in your life? We've made that easier too! We now offer Harvest Moon Market gift certificates that are good towards purchase of any items in the store, including all of our groceries and gifts. You can also give the gift of good health by buying a friend or family member a gift CSA subscription. Give them a week or give them a month - each week they'll be able to pick up a whole box of fresh, organic goodness at a convenient location.
