Salt Fork Farms Winter Market (plus Milo’s Halloween Costume)

The Iowa City Farmers’ Market has come to an end. Moving forward Salt Fork Farms will be having a Winter Market at Deluxe Bakery in Iowa City.  If you are on our email list, great! If you want to be on our email list, please send us a note and we will add you! Details as why you will need to be on the list are below.

As far as our products go, hopefully we can provide you with some relief to the challenge of food choices that come with the Iowa winter.  Here is a brief summary of how things are going to go (subject to change):

Where:          Our winter market will take place at Deluxe Bakery.  Out of consideration for the regular business of the bakery, please park on either Summit St. or Sheridan St.
When:           We will hold this market from 9-12 on Saturdays, unless otherwise notified.
How:            We will send out an email notification of what products are available each Monday.  We will take orders after the notice goes out until Friday at noon.
What:           Items available for pre-ordering include broiler chickens, stew hens, chicken feet, and eggs (as available).  Orders will be honored in the order I receive them through email.
What not:       We will not take pre-orders for produce (which we may have until winter really sets in).  You will be notified of what we have each week, but it is too complicated to track produce orders at this time.  Produce will be offered on a first come, first serve basis during market hours.
Other:          This is the first time we will be holding this market at Deluxe.  We are really excited to partner with the bakery, and we want all Salt Fork customers to recognize, celebrate and respect the normal functioning of the bakery as we infiltrate their space.

With that, we will have the following come this saturday:
Broiler chickens
chicken feet
Eggs– large, medium, extra large, small
radishes
celery
beets
carrots
onions
garlic
arugula
mustard greens
chard
kale
chiles
leeks

Thanks and we hope this will be a great new experiment for everyone!
