    There are many fountains of knowledge to draw from within St. Petersburg. Some of the events below are open to the public but lectures are reserved exclusively for active Market customers attending monthly potluck socials. Become an active customer and enjoy all the perks of our Market Community!

    THESE WORKSHOPS ARE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. One of our missions is to teach everyone to grow their own food. Remember that if you grow your own food, you won’t need to buy it from us! There is NO obligation to sell your produce through our Market to qualify for these classes. Join Nathan Levy of Nathan’s Natural Veggies in his St. Petersburg demonstration garden for two incredible workshops—“Successful Urban Farming in St. Petersburg” and REAL DIRT: Make Your Own”—that will help both garden veterans and beginners make it all work. Learn to create a fertile growing medium in which to grow your own food and enjoy the high quality, fresh-picked produce that you have been craving YEAR-ROUND. Sign up and get discounts for attending both workshops or for bringing a friend with you. COST per workshop: $35 per person, $50 per couple/friends. Individuals can prepay BOTH workshops for $60. MAIL CHECKS, payable to “Nathan Levy” to 5305 20th St. N., St. Petersburg, FL 33714 or pay for both at first class. Email questions to nathan47@tampabay.rr.com or call 727-403-1655. RSVPs are requested. View & print WORKSHOP FLYER

    Visit our Lecture Series slide show and you will see what education & community building look like: Commonality, Motivation, Fellowship, and Knowledge.

    LAST CHANCE TO ORDER HOLIDAY GIFTS
    Here are local holiday gift ideas from the growers who sell through our Market!

    FRUIT THIS WEEK
    Strawberries from Plant City’s Strawberry Passion Farms in addition to braeburn & fuji apples, sour oranges, red d’anjou pears, starfruit, Medjool dates, ripe papayas, and sugar cane. Make your own gift basket from our Market’s fresh fruit, much of it local!

    WELCOME TO OUR NEWEST CUSTOMERS
    Once you have submitted your order, if in doubt about what you owe, you can always confirm what you have been charged for by checking your account history and viewing your most current invoice. Instructions on how to do that are on our Q&A page under the question entitled Since you don’t provide an invoice with delivery, how do I know what I owe? Also, since your vegetables are picked fresh within 24 hours of delivery, they should be lasting for WEEKS in your refrigerator. When you accept delivery, please take a few minutes to inspect your order to protect your vegetables from unnecessary spoilage. Lastly, it is imperative that you understand our policy on Unclaimed Orders found on our Q&A page. When you make a purchase you are agreeing to abide by this policy.

    SATISFACTION GUARANTEED
    Our Market has high standards for what it sells. Despite that—as seasons transition—the challenges of evolving weather and pesky insects can take its toll on the crops. Market Growers are being very selective about what they are willing to present to you. No, it won’t always be picture perfect (which is part of its charm) and sometimes an insect is going to evade capture! But we won’t send you anything that we wouldn’t eat ourselves. If for any reason we have goofed and you are dissatisfied, please report it to me right away so we can rectify the situation. That’s how we get better and we all benefit from that. Your satisfaction is key to our success as a resource for St. Petersburgs’ lovers of chemical-free, organically & locally grown vegetables.

    SPLG Hyeroglyphics

    Ever notice the hyeroglyphics written on the front of some of our product descriptions? like “CT3.19@RO&2.99@EO/Mex”? That means “compare our price to local competitors (RO & EO) and their current pricing and also noting if their’s is sourced internationally.” New one for you: “saEO” means “same as (a competitor)”… Don’t forget that regardless of pricing, when you compare our prices to those of local retailers, our locally grown, chemical-free vegetables are harvested to order for delivery to YOU!

    OUR MARKET SCHEDULE UNTIL END OF YEAR
    If you cannot view this link at the SPLG Market Calendar 2014 then here is the scoop! Please make note of it… Closed week of 11/24 for thanksgiving, re-open weeks of 12/1 and 12/15 then closed for TWO weeks including week of Christmas and New Years.

    TRADITIONALTHANKSGIVING FARE
    We invested in minimal amounts of cauliflower, russets, reds, and sweet potatoes this week. Also acquired beautiful cranberries from Oregon and the Covington yams are from NC. While doing research on yams vs. sweet potatoes, I happened on info that the Covington Yams from NC are used to produce Covington Gourmet Vodka for sale in NC liquor stores. Their marketing byline? “Ending America’s dependence on foreign vodka”. Differences between sweet potatoes and yams? EXCERPT: “A true yam is… generally imported to America from the Caribbean. It is rough and scaly and very low in beta carotene.” Also BEAUTIFUL Seminole Pumpkins available in good variety of sizes! Shop early as all these items will go fast.

    GREAT SQUASH SIDE DISH
    This one never fails to please my guests and doesn’t have to be a side dish… Roasted Butternut Squash, Rosemary, and Garlic Lasagne. If you want a version to print from Cook’s Illustrated that has a photo, then here is my copy.

    FRUIT THIS WEEK
    We hope that we are satisfying your needs for fruit lately. We are loving the convenience and variety available for our customers! This week: pineapples, grapefruit, apples, pears, etc.

    DEADLINE ON ORDERING NON GMO RAW COW MILK
    Pam has posted the deadline as Tuesday 3PM due to the logistics of getting this fine product from her supplier for all things raw-cow. Look for it under the "M"s listed as “Milk – JTB Jersey Farms Raw Cow Milk TOTALLY NON GMO”.

    NEW CUSTOMERS ARE ASKING ABOUT RAW DAIRY AND EGG PRODUCTS LABELEDFOR PET CONSUMPTION ONLY
    Pam Lunn of The Dancing Goat has graciously provided this explanation: “While we drink and eat all our products in our household, and have for the past 14 years, our licensing from the State of Florida (FDACS #1280 Dancing Goat) requires that we sell for the intent of pet consumption only. Any attempt to engage in conversations regarding the consumption by humans could jeopardize our licensing. Per Florida Law, it is illegal to sell raw milk/products for the intent of human consumption. Our milk products / cheeses are all raw and our free range eggs are not graded or washed in a chemical solution. We provide you with products produced by our stock the way Mother Nature delivered them.” NOTE FROM MKT MGR: ALL of our egg providers are required to provide this labelling.

    FLORIDA FRUIT? …WE’VE GOT THAT!
    From Florida: star fruit (carambola) from St. Petersburg, tangerines & golden pineapples from south FL, cucumbers from north FL (and they look so much better than last Market). From US West Coast: Fuji apples, Concorde pears, and red seedless grapes. PLEASE HELP US sell out on fruit this week as we are closed next week.

    WHAT’S NEW?"
    Red potatoes from Wisconsin and celery from California. We would love to find local growers with these items! Please point them in our direction? We provide these non-local items for the convenience of our customers as they have been requested.

    VOLUNTEERS NEEDED THIS WEEK
    Please call Market Manager 727-515-9469 for the details on these local opps:
    Thursday morning: Want FREE star fruit? We need a few volunteers for about 90 minutes to go harvest star fruit from an urban contributor in St. Petersburg. You get to pick all you want for yourself as well! They have a ladder and a picking tool available.
    Thursday afternoon: If you love goats and would like to visit with them every other week, then this opportunity may suit you. We need someone to go pick up the raw dairy products from The Dancing Goat in Oldsmar on Thursday of each Market week. We are willing to reimburse for mileage or roundtrip fuel, whichever works best for you. There is no obligation to do it every time. We would greatly appreciate an occasional week here or there.

    NEW VIDEO FROM JEFF YENTZER
    A beautiful recipe from Volunteer Videographer Jeff Yentzer of AlkalineHealth.net with a lovely end result to behold: a Paleo meal garnished with starfruit. Almost too gorgeous to eat. Thank you, Jeff!

Lastly, it is imperative that you understand our policy on Unclaimed Orders found on our Q&A page. When you make a purchase you are agreeing to abide by this policy.

    SATISFACTION GUARANTEED
    Our Market has high standards for what it sells. Despite that—as seasons transition—the challenges of evolving weather and pesky insects can take its toll on the crops. Market Growers are being very selective about what they are willing to present to you. No, it won’t always be picture perfect (which is part of its charm) and sometimes an insect is going to evade capture! But we won’t send you anything that we wouldn’t eat ourselves. If for any reason we have goofed and you are dissatisfied, please report it to me right away so we can rectify the situation. That’s how we get better and we all benefit from that. Your satisfaction is key to our success as a resource for St. Petersburgs’ lovers of chemical-free, organically & locally grown vegetables.

    Market Schedule until End of Year 2014

    DO check the SPLG Market Calendar 2014 that is always posted so you can plan your shopping excursions on our online chemical-free veggie Market. As you know, we recently moved our Market hours to a biweekly (every other week) schedule. Here are the only exceptions to our plan through the end of this year. We won’t be open the week of Thanksgiving but WILL BE OPEN two consecutive weeks prior to Thanksgiving week so that you can be well stocked for the day of gratitude & fine dining with your families. In addition, we will be closed two weeks in a row—the weeks of Christmas and New Year’s. And finally, have you marked your calendars for our December 6th Holiday Party? It’s guaranteed to be an evening of enchantment! Tina, YOUR Market Manager

    FRUIT? …WE’VE GOT THAT!
    We’ve got it going this week and will have it every time the Market is open as long as it is selling well. Please stock up on your fruit with us every other week. Thanks to all those who have let me know what they would like us to supply. When I get enough people interested in some of the more unique items then I will order them. One thing to note: Berries do not keep well so those will be difficult to provide. They have to be consumed within a day or two of delivery (to us) and our timeframe to get them to you is too long for them to hold up well. Regrets that we have yet to figure out how to make that work (but we are always thinking…)

    REPEAT OF Market Schedule Announcement REPEAT

    After much consideration I have decided to make SPLG’s biweekly Market schedule a permanent change for several reasons. At sixty, I need a bit more time to relax, as much as I love this Market work so dearly! Secondly, we’ve proven this summer that our biweekly efforts produce almost as much income as two successive weekly Markets. This change will mean less wear and tear on all our resources, including our dedicated volunteers who commit their free time to year-round service of our Market customers and without whom our business cannot exist. Most of all, our biweekly summer schedule has given me such a feeling of well being!

    How will this change impact our valued customers? Not at all. You will continue to enjoy great locally grown, freshly harvested produce delivered with gentle hands from kind, volunteering spirits, and wonderful monthly potluck socials that bring us all together to celebrate the diversity of our local food movement and the wonderful commonalities of our members. I appreciate all of your ongoing support for St. Pete Locally Grown. I step into the future with delight! Tina, YOUR Market Manager

    NO FRUIT THIS WEEK
    Due to severe flooding and standing water on our supplier’s property, our order had to be cancelled because they could not accept delivery. You cannot be more disappointed than I am. However, I am looking into opening an account for SPLG IF we can meet the minimum order requirements. We have been selling out of fruit each Market week because I’ve been cautious in not over-supplying our Market. Since demand appears to be steadying and our customer base is expanding, it may be time to try it out. The BIG advantage to you as charter customers is that our pricing will be low to make sure it sells out. Once we can depend on consistency of demand, then I will have to ask for more return on our investment. Can you all live with that arrangement? Would love to hear from you.

    PRAY FOR SUNSHINE
    Too much rain isn’t good for the crops and the wonderful folks who tend to them.

    MESSAGE FROM GROWERS
    - Pam Lunn of The Dancing Goat reports: “We should be back in the cow extras i.e. butter, cream, cottage cheese in mid/late October. One just calved on Saturday and three more are walking the perimeter at the mall – just kidding but their udders are filling which indicates calving is coming shortly!”
    - Joe Ramon of JR’s Greens noticed that I mis-reported his name when I introduced him last Market. His last name is NOT ‘Ramos’; it is Ramon. Sincere apologies to Joe. WELCOME to his wonderful yellow squash on our Market this week! Nathan and I have enjoyed its ‘golden’ flavor!
    - Steve & Tara Kipp of Faithful Farms come through for us again this week despite heavy rain damage. Their delicate lettuce, though covered, was ripped apart by heavy winds and rain. They need our support this week for sure!
    - Nathan of Nathan’s Natural Veggies would love to get some feedback on the Juicing Bundle: Power Booster you may have purchased recently! Please email your comments directly to Nathan. Do remember that Nathan’s salad mixes are a substantial alternative to standard lettuces that we are awaiting.

    MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR DEC. 6TH SPLG EVENTS CALENDAR
    - We will combine potluck socials for November and December into one event we call our Annual Holiday Party—on December 6th. DO mark your calendars now. Active customers, volunteers, and growers will receive their invitations in early November.
    - In November we will be open two weeks in a row just before Thanksgiving so we can close for the week of Thanksgiving. You will have plenty of time to be prepared for this important day of sharing food and being grateful. All weeks of Market schedule are posted on our event calendar and reflect the permanent bi-weekly schedule.

    Sorry, no COW raw dairy this week except for cow yogurt. “Grower” is waiting for heifers to have their calves! GOAT raw dairy is available as usual.

    NATHAN’S WORKSHOPS
    This coming Saturday’s workshop on Sept. 20th will start at 8am sharp for anyone learning how to make their own dirt, what Nathan calls “REAL DIRT”. This particular workshop is held every month year-round on the third Saturday of the month. If you miss this one, there is always next month. What’s important about this one is the timing. Tis the season to be planting and the condition of your soil is going to impact the yield of your precious garden and the time you have invested. Hope to see you! Get all the details on both the September & October workshops, plus a preview of Nathan’s garden at this link. You can Rsvp BELOW under the “Workshops & Events” AND get a peek at Nathan’s dirt. He’s really got it down…

    FEATURED FRESH FRUIT THIS WEEK ==>Fuji apples, green seedless grapes (large and sweet!), Red Sensation pears, and Green Goose pluots. We don’t want any leftovers so please buy fruit this week!

    WELCOME NEW GROWER THIS WEEK!
    JR’s Greens has posted some gourmet cowpeas that originated from Cuba. They are intentionally harvested small to be consumed whole either raw or sauteed. Joe Ramon, upcoming urban farmer, will have lots more interesting produce in the weeks ahead. We are thrilled to have another backyard grower in our repertoire! YOU can do it too. We’ll teach you how.

    LOCAL SUMMER FARMERS
    We are grateful to ALL who contribute goods to our online Market year round. We love the local raw dairy, eggs, honey, and all the household & garden products, coffees, herbal remedies, dried goods, fruit, and natural skin care products that we have come to rely on. The summer is especially challenging for our Growers who farm in the heat. Special thanks to those who have been responsible for almost all the greens and veggies purchased through our Market this summer. Without these dedicated folks, our Market could not have stayed open this summer. Thanks to all!
    Brenon’s Homegrown continues to nurture specialized greens & herbs that are tough to find locally.
    Faithful Farms is bursting at the seams with freshly harvested-to-order produce like lettuces, kales, turnips, spinach, and a beautiful variety of herbs. As hydroponic producers, they are ahead of the curve with fall produce and we have it on our Market now. Yay! They are allocating more volume to us this week so let’s show them our support.
    Glory Road Gardens delivers only the highest quality microgreens and we’re so glad they have returned to our Market. They were missed!
    Nathan’s Natural Veggies is our summer provider of lettuce mixes with substantial textures and tastes. He has become our summer salad specialist.

    COMING TO MARKET THIS FALL
    Doug Wild Alaska Salmon returns to Florida in November so our Market will have salmon to sell right after Thanksgiving.
    Geraldson Community Farm will be back with 100% Certified Organic produce. Availability and variety this year is supposed to improve over last year. We were satisfied last season… but bring it on!
    Pioneer Settlement Garden intends to provide our Market with produce again this fall. We are thrilled!

    MORE VOLUNTEERS NEEDEDNOW EVERY OTHER WEEK
    - We especially need customer oriented folks to join our Friday delivery teams which head out around 11am. We provide all the training & coaching you might need, a comfortable air-conditioned cargo van in which to ride with a skilled partner who will help you be successful AND have a good time doing it. The commitment for this is about 3 hours every other week.
    - We also need more folks on Thursdays to package vegetables for Friday delivery.
    - On Friday morning we are currently seeking folks who like working with a team to load customer coolers and help to get the van ready for deliveries.
    - We will train and we promise you will have fun! Please call or email me if you want to meet some fabulous, like-minded people!
