Week 7 looks like it's going to be a hot one! 

There have been a lot of long, sunny days lately in NE Ohio, and we're really excited for the forecast of some rain tomorrow and Thursday. Just a reminder, we will still be at the stops if it's raining, and we will send you any status updates via email and social media if needed. Bring an umbrella and place a special order for extras!

What's in the bag: green cabbage, ground beef, carrots, onions, cherries, blueberries and for the large subscribers, the first sweet corn of the season! Time to make some cabbage rolls or maybe a big slaw salad for a cookout to beat the heat. Our Vegan and Vegetarian subscribers will have some pinto beans and red potatoes (bean salad? Cold potato salad?) along with all their fruits and veggies. 

Thanks to everyone who came out to say hi and eat some corn at the Taste of Tremont this past weekend-- perfect weather and a busy, fun day. Don't forget about this upcoming weekend's events-- The Family Farm Field Day in Wilmot, on Wholesome Valley Farm. It's an all-day festival on Saturday, celebrating all-things homesteading. There will be lots of demonstrations, vendors, talks (with Keynote Speaker Joel Salatin) and an la carte lunch. There will also be a 'family-station' set up in the barn with air-conditioning and space for changing tables and nursing if you want to bring the little ones. Also, it's free!

The Family Farm Field Day event is this Saturday! Amish & English families and farmers getting together to share tips, stories and food in a celebration of homesteading and small-scale sustainable farming.
Reminders
We are canceling the downtown stops due to the RNC this week and next. 

We will not be running the 5th Street Arcades or the Playhouse Square Stops this week and next--Thursday the 14th or Thursday the 21st of July--due to the RNC.

The next closest stop is in Tremont, which is on Saturdays from 10:00am-2:00pm, but you're welcome to come pick up your share at any other location and you don't need to let us know beforehand.

If you would like to place a Special Order during those weeks, please go ahead and place it and then write to us (info@freshforkmarket.com) to let us know where you'll be picking up so we can make sure it's sorted for the correct route.


We will take back glass jars & Whole Valley Brand egg cartons! 

We will take back any Wholesome Valley Egg Cartons as well as clean mason jars, so if you think of it bring them with you to your stop! 

However, you can just reuse, recycle or toss the blue quart containers (that your berries and eventually tomatoes come in), as well as any paper or plastic bags. Thanks, Green Forkers.

Featured Product
Velvet View Yogurt

Velvet-View Farmstead Dairy is a family owned and operated Dairy in Holmes County, Ohio. The Schlauch family has managed the farm for more than 60 years, and the superb quality and "farm goodness" of their yogurt is evident from the first taste- all with no additives or preservatives.  Their Holsteins are milked 3 times a day, and the milk goes directly from the cows to "the yogurt room," only 17 feet away, so it never leaves the barn for processing.

We have two varieties for sale-- their plain yogurt ($5/quart), which is thin and pourable, tangy and delicious and then a rich and creamy Greek style ($7/quart.) Pick up some today to make 1 minute berry frozen yogurt, or for smoothies with all these fruits and greens in your bags! Or try one of our favorite summer recipes, a French yogurt cake (with fresh fruit, of course.)
