At the Market on Saturday!
Please find our farmers in their same location until November 10. After that, you'll find them on Saturday closer to the store. Wednesdays we'll continue to provide the market year round inside The Party Source. (more below)
Local Food is food produced within the "local foodshed' in the Central Ohio River Valley Watershed within 100 miles of Cincinnati.
Making a 10% shift in buying or producing local food does not mean all of your food has to be local. It just means shifting what you currently eat to include 10% more locally grown and/or produced food.
If 10% of the regional population takes the pledge it will result in over $49,000,000 infused into the local economy and 544 local jobs! Plus, it's better for the environment and a healthier option.

Great Opportunity to Try Kentucky-made Cheese
The season is winding down, but Greensleeves will be at the Saturday market with ginger, garlic, lettuce, and greens. Stock up on Sunflower Sundries for holiday gifts, and take advantage of the sale on Kenny's Farmhouse Cheeses!
Shady Grove Farm
Beef and Wreaths
Just like Nancy's - you, too, can make this scrumptious meal!
This Saturday will be Shady Grove Farm's last at regular Market. The garden has been amazing thru September & October, but even amazing lives come to an end. This week there will be radishes, greens, endives, rapini, a few late chiles (Anaheim, Cayenne & Poblano) and the last of September's local, pasture-raised beef. That includes ground chuck, T-bones (you can make several meals out of one. Ask Nancy how), sirloin strip, brisket, liver, short ribs, cube steaks & rib steaks.
Goat meat from Summer is sold out, but there may be some available in December. Email Nancy if interested.
Looking ahead to the Holidays: order a door-size* wreath of all-natural greenery, $35, for pickup at The Party Source the Saturday after Thanksgiving (that would be the 24th). I'll send a reminder. Wreaths are made of white pine, blue spruce, blue berry juniper ("Cedar"), magnolia & boxwood. Also greenery by the stem, $10 for a bucket of mixed varieties, 20 stems minimum. *Other size wreaths by request.
Please note materials are limited to what Nature provided this year despite drought, heat, windstorm etc. from this farm and immediate neighbors. For specific varieties, reserve early.
Nancy's blog provides you with insight into life on the farm, recipes, and much more!
Veggies, Greens, Potatoes and Dried & Fresh Flowers!
Tomatoes (red and green), an abundance of fall/winter squash and pumpkins for pies, fresh green onions, large cabbage heads, kale, mustard, peppers (sweet and hot), china rose radishes and other mixed radishes, turnips (large and small) with tops for fresh greens, green beans, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and whatever other surprises they find.
We will have a few fresh cut florist mums if they open up in time for Saturday's market, and natural dried flowers for Thanksgiving decorations. We have a barn full of colorful dried flowers that can also be purchased any time after market closes. To make arrangements to buy dried flowers, contact us at 859-586-7204, or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
Check Out Ann's Green Tip of the Week!
This week Ann will have new gift baskets of all-natural soy tarts scented for the holidays, Holiday Wreath & Flowers, Buttery Pumpkin Spice, Gingerbread, Cinnamon and Spice, Eggnog, and Santa's Sugar Cookies. Also available: All-Purpose cleaner, Disinfectant cleaner, Glass cleaner, Sink and Tile cleaner, Soft Scrub, Disinfectant wipes, Dishwashing disks, Soy candles and tarts, tart warmers, and Organic Dog treats.
GREEN TIP OF THE WEEK: Stock up on fresh veggies!
It takes 3 billion kWh of energy per year to produce canned vegetables. Instead of frozen or canned vegetables, serve fresh potatoes and yams for Thanksgiving dinner!
In order to protect inventory, Ann will not be at the market during inclement weather.
Generation Hill Winery
Take a Taste / Buy a Bottle
The last couple of weekends have been pretty disappointing weather wise. The rough weather has kept a lot of our patrons at home. This weekend, however, is predicted to have some great weather. So come on out Saturday and join Generation Hill for the last day this year for the Bellevue Farmers market in the Party Source parking lot.
Our Mother's Garden
Start your Christmas shopping early!
With Christmas just a few months away, it's the perfect time to get your luxurious handcrafted soaps at the special price of $5 per bar. This includes the current inventory of soap for sale at the Market. There are a limited number of each batch. How about Lemon Silk, Fuzzy Navel, Rosemary or Fresh Fruit Salsa? And, there are many more to choose from. Everyone likes receiving a bar of handcrafted soap as a gift.
Winter/Holiday soaps will be available later in November! Three Kings, Vanilla Hazelnut, Christmas Memories, Oak Leaves and Acorns and Berries and Twigs are just a few. Hope to see you at the Market!
There's nothing like picking in the cold wind and rain caused by Hurrican Sandy! They're looking forward to the warmer, sunnier days predicted for the weekend. They still have lots of squash, peppers, beans, eggplant, tomatoes and watermelon!
