Hi there! 

This is an off-week for the Winter Share (no pick ups this week!), but we wanted to let you guys know about some of our special Holiday offerings

We have put together some of our favorite local products in a few gift baskets: if you want to gift local, Fresh Fork Market has everything you need for all your food gifting needs!

FYI-- we are not offering hams this year, but we have plenty of other fantastic meats to order online (listed under the category "Meats".) All of our other Holiday Offerings are listed under the category "Seasonal Offerings" in our online shop

Please order by next Tuesday, December 15th, and your gifts will be delivered during Week 5 of the Winter Share (December 16th-19th) which is the last delivery before Christmas. The supply is limited for each gift item, so please order early. You can place two special orders, too-- one now for gifts and one next Tuesday when you hear what's in the bag for Winter Week 5. 

Just as a reminder, there are no deliveries this week or the week of December 23rd-26th, but we will have deliveries the week of New Year's.

Pasture Raised Turkeys 
- $65

These were the stars of the Thanksgiving feast this year, and we still have some that weren't quite big enough for harvest a few weeks ago. 

All of our turkeys are pasture-raised, and their diet is supplemented with non-GMO small grains and have never been treated with hormones or antibiotics. They average around 20 lbs and are $65 each. 

The turkeys available for Holiday Ordering are frozen because the delivery is a week in advance of Christmas. Allow your turkey 4-5 days to thaw in the fridge before roasting (and it can stay in your fridge, once thawed, for up to 7 days.)  

Ohio Apple Sampler Crate - $25

Beautiful, wooden apple crates hand-packed with straw and a variety of six different types of some of the most delicious apples Ohio can grow, all from Eshleman Fruit Farm in Clyde, OH. Each box measures 15" x 12" x 7" and is full of about 24 apples (depending on size.) 

These would make a great gift for teachers, a healthier office holiday treat, or as a host or hostess gift. Pair it with this beautiful book-- Apples of Uncommon Character: a long photo and poem dedication to the heirloom apple. 

$25 and supplies limited to only 50 gift boxes.

Pope's Kitchen Hot Sauce Trio - $15

Clark and his staff were busy all Fall cutting and putting up hot peppers to make delicious sauces. All of the sauces were produced with locally grown hot peppers, and in this 3-pack  (5 oz bottles) we are offering three of his most popular flavors: 

Burning River (medium)- this well-balanced hot sauce combines the body and sweet characteristics of vine-ripened Ohio tomatoes that have been cooked into a paste and blended with a medium-hot/hot sauce of a blend of local peppers.

Smoking River (hotter)- jalape�o peppers are smoked over hickory wood chips before being cooked down into a smokey hot sauce with attitude. 
Whiskey River (medium-hot)- this sauce was aged in a bourbon barrel and cooked down with American bourbon.

All three bottles are presented in a gift box that can be gifted as-is or is ready to wrap. Just $15 per set.
Local Cheeses Collection - $30

We have a collection of five locally produced cheeses to sample on a disposable tray: Charloe (ripe and semi-soft cheese, perfect for the true cheese lover), Lake Erie Creamery's delightful Lemon Ch�vre, Ohio's best Blue Cheese from Yellow House Creamery, crowd-favorite Sharp Cheddar from Middlefield Creamery, and Smoked Gouda from Mayfield Creamery. 

Wooden Cheese Board 
- $30

Our cheese board is a custom-made wooden cutting board fashioned from reclaimed wood by a local artist. 

Bundled together with a large piece of Bloomfield Brie (camembert) from Mayfield Road Creamery and a bottle of Pope's Strawberry Balsamic Sauce. Try baking the brie with the sauce on top- a delicious and instant Happy Hour appetizer.
