Dear Conway Locally Grown Community,

I don’t know what to make of this weather (11 rainy days in a row to kick off August, followed by chilly mornings in the low 50’s !!), but I like it. I’m sure our farmers are relieved for the change after last year’s drought. Take advantage of the pleasant evenings – cook outside with friends and family. There’s nothing more relaxing to me than being in good company, standing next to a sizzling grill, cold one in hand, watching the sun set, some mellow tunes playing – you get the idea. Good weather, good people, good food, real simple.

The market is now open for ordering. Please make sure to hit the checkout button. You will receive a confirmation email once you place your order.

Have a wonderful week,
Gabe Levin

Dear Conway Locally Grown Community,

The subject of meat in the context of health and sustainability is consistently a hotbed of debate. I stumbled across this article, “Make Peace With Meat,” that I think offers a sensible approach to eating meat in a way that is healthy for consumers and the environment. The article promotes what is called a “flexitarian” diet – mostly vegetarian but sometimes including small portions of meat. Click the link and give it a quick skim. If you’re a habitual carnivore, perhaps it will help you reconsider the amount of meat you eat, and if you’re a vegetarian, perhaps it will help you justify enjoying some quality meat now and then.

Dear Conway Locally Grown Community,

Please see Patricia Hutchins’ important message below regarding gluten and Shamrock and Thistle’s baked goods.

“I wanted to clear up any confusion over Shamrock and Thistle’s baked goods as to what is gluten free and what is not. We sell three types of products:

1. Gluten Free. These have GF in the title and they are made with 100% gluten free ingredients. I make my own baking mix. All gluten free products are baked and bagged seperately from those containing gluten.

2. Spelt. Spelt is a an older variety of wheat that has a much lower gluten content than modern wheat. Some people with gluten intolerance can eat spelt. It is not recommended for those with celiac or serious wheat allergies.

3. Other baked goods like our bread. This is made with normal unbleached wheat flour and spelt and sometimes other grains like oats. This has the most gluten in it and is only for people with no wheat issues."
