Opening Bell - Last Market Before Thanksgiving!


Dear Conway Locally Grown Family,

Just last Tuesday we had one of the earliest hard freezes in recent memory, and today we could hit a record high of 81 degrees set in 1921. Despite these crazy temperature swings, or growers continue to do the work of supplying first-class food to our dinner plates. As you plan for your Thanksgiving meal, don’t forget to order some local produce for your guests to take home with them. Maybe a butternut squash, or a pint of BBQ sauce or salsa, or even a pound of ground beef. They’ll thank you for it. And please share our contact info below with any friends who might like to enjoy locally grown food. Have a great week! Steve

Housekeeping note: If you order the fantastic Harvest Special box from Barnhill Orchards, please bring back the box when empty so it can be re-used. Thanks!

Opening Bell: Hard Freeze this Week!

The forecast is calling for some serious winter cold in the middle of the week, but that doesn’t mean that the produce you order now won’t be delivered on Friday. Many of our hard-working growers have either greenhouses or the ability to cover their cold-sensitive crops when freezing temps are predicted. Go ahead and order what you want, and I’m sure they’ll make every effort to deliver the goods!

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.

Please share the contact info above with all your friends and let them know that we are the only market that stays open year-round in Faulkner County. Many thanks to Caleb for volunteering to help keep the Facebook page updated.

Many of you have, no doubt, made some amazing meals with the items you order from CLG. If you would like to share a recipe or two, I will be glad to post them on the site for others to enjoy. Please email me your recipes and I’ll work on getting them uploaded.

It’s about time to get your Thanksgiving meal planned and ordered. Items like sweet potatoes and winter squash will keep for many weeks, so go ahead and order them now, ahead of the rush. And I’m needing indoor homes for about a dozen lemongrass plants. Reduced to only $2.25. Great for tea!

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.
