Tuesday Reminder - CLG Market


Dear Conway Locally Grown Community,

This is a reminder that the market closes tonight at 10pm. There’s still time to place orders and if you forgot something Sunday or Monday, just place another order.

Also, please take just a moment to add a 2nd phone number to your account in case we need to call you. Email me if you need help doing that. Thanks to those who have already emailed me.

Have a great week & see you Friday!

If you have a question about the market, please email me at kirp1968@sbcglobal.net or call/text 501-339-1039.

Opening Bell: Let's try this again!


Wow, what a crippling winter storm! Over 2/3 of the state received significant ice, sleet, or snow…enough to cancel colleges, state offices, concerts, and sporting events from Little Rock to Missouri. We are confident that the decision to cancel Friday’s market was the responsible thing to do.

Many folks were able to stay home and relax, but weather like this puts extra work on our growers. For an example, just take a look at Falling Sky Farm’s facebook posts from 4-5 December.

If you haven’t already done so, please take a minute to add a 2nd phone number to your account.

We will *NOT *be offering the alternate Monday pickup temporarily. If you will NOT be in town on Friday at 4pm, you can still order. We just ask that you make arrangements to have someone pick up your order for you: friend, family member, neighbor, etc.

Also, occasionally someone will forget to pick up their order and we are unable to reach them when we call the number on their account at 5:30pm. Please go to the YOUR ACCOUNT tab and add a second phone number to increase our chances of contacting you as a reminder. If you would like help doing this, please email me: kirp1968@sbcglobal.net. There will also be a $10 MISSED PICK UP fee added to your account if you forget to pick up Friday from 4-6pm. We will make every effort to contact you, so please help us by adding a second phone number.

Thanks for taking the time to read this update. Over 600 products available this week! The market is open for ordering!

Thank you,
Steve

MARKET CANCELED DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER


Even though it’s 72 degrees as I write this, we have decided to cancel the market for this Friday. All weather reports indicate that keeping the market open would have 65 customers and 15 growers driving in potentially very hazardous conditions. All orders will be canceled and customer accounts will not be charged.

The market will re-open on Sunday night. Thank you for your understanding. Please be safe during this winter storm.

Thank you.
Steve

Opening Bell:


Good afternoon everyone!
One big holiday meal out of the way, and another one coming in 3 weeks. Our growers are continuing to produce some amazingly delicious and nutritious food, right here in Central Arkansas. After protecting their crops during the recent cold spell, it looks like this week they can breathe a little easier with much warmer temps in the area, until Friday anyway.

If you haven’t already done so, please take a minute to add a 2nd phone number to your account. Here’s the info again that I sent out on Friday…

We will NOT be offering the alternate Monday pickup temporarily. If you will NOT be in town on Friday at 4pm, you can still order. We just ask that you make arrangements to have someone pick up your order for you: friend, family member, neighbor, etc.

Also, occasionally someone will forget to pick up their order and we are unable to reach them when we call the number on their account at 5:30pm.

There will also be a $10 MISSED PICK UP fee added to your account if you forget to pick up Friday from 4-6pm. We will make every effort to contact you, so please help us by adding a second phone number.

Thanks for taking the time to read this update. Around 700 products available this week! The market is open for ordering!

Thank you,
Steve
