I can't believe this is the end of the winter season. This week, on the bright side, looks like we should have almost summer temperatures!
Because this is the end of the Winter Season, please remember a few things:
- all special orders for extras at http://csalogin.freshforkmarket.com must be in by Tuesday at midnight. We can't ship next cycle as there isn't one.
- please bring your checkbook to pay any open balance and/or pay for extra items purchased at the back of the truck
- if you forget to pickup this week, we can't offer any special accommodations or make up bags. Remember, you are welcome to pickup at any of our other locations if you miss your primary location, or you may send a friend to pickup on your behalf.
This week is the end of our winter season and although we aren't seeing the spring growth we expected yet, we do still have some tasty items we put away in the fall, including a roasted heirloom tomato sauce that will pair nicely with this week's special ramp linguine, made using whole wheat flour, fresh cracked pasture raised eggs, and fresh ramps that are being dug today.
Below are a few other announcements and community happenings:
Cleveland Flea - this weekend, Saturday May 10 from 9 AM to 4 PM
If you haven't yet been to the Flea, you need to go. It is the coolest thing in Cleveland with thousands of folks milling around small, artisan food vendors, crafters, upcyclers, and vintage/antique dealers. The mix of edibles, house-goods, decor, clothes and fashions ensures that you'll surely find something for everyone.
We will be there selling smoothies and signing folks up for the Summer Season.
The event is free to the public. It is this Saturday, 9 AM to 4 PM in the parking lot next to Sterle's Slovenian House on East 55th and St Clair. Full details and more: http://theclevelandflea.com/ and https://www.facebook.com/TheClevelandFlea
Urban Community School 5K Run
UCS, located on Lorain Ave at West 49th, is a jewel to the near west side. They provide exceptional education to local youngsters, most who attend on scholarship or assistance. I've had the privilege of presenting to these students year after year and the quality of the education, instructors, and facility are second to none. This is only possible through the support of their donor network.
If you are a runner, or want to give it a try, please consider participating in their 5K Run. The monies raised will go to good use, and the run is accompanied by a health fair.
The Run is on Saturday, May 10th at 10 AM. Full details and registration found here.
Summer Season Registration Open
Registration is now open to everyone and for returning customers with no balance, all you need to do is reserve your spot. No further payment is due until May. Please do this ASAP.
