But, guess what where we went today and guess what Michael did?
I thought I'd try to clear up what's happening here at The Simple Farm.
WE'RE CLOSED: For the month of August (and maybe a little into September) we closed the regular Thursday morning market - it's just too hot, we need to plan and plant for the Fall season and it's a good time to do that now.
WE'RE OPEN: What we are doing is an Honor System Market - 7am - 7pm, 7 days a week. Read here how it works. Not only do we have our regular goat cheese, goat milk and gelato from Crow's Dairy, but we have caramel, eggs, honey, jams, sometimes apples and the past two days we had okra, eggplant, bunching onions, fresh snipped herbs (basil, thyme, rosemary), squash (golden acorn, butternut, spaghetti), melons, and a few extra loaves of bread. If you want to special order bread - here's how you do it. Otherwise there will be a limited selection of Grano de Vida breads.
When you use this Honor System Market - simply weigh your own produce if it needs weighed. There is a hanging scale under the market patio. Write down what you are buying and how much everything costs. Put your name on the paper - then put paper and either cash or check (sorry there is no change available) into that Drop Box in the big black armoire. It's simple and not only do we love the system but it seems like a lot of you do too.
We're generally around doing something on the farm, so if you have a question, don't hesitate to give me a jingle (480-206-7821). We're glad to help out.
Thanks again for supporting your local farmers. We appreciate you!
