Greetings! Although it seems like time to hunker down for the winter, it is also time to rejoice. In the three years that I have been working with TFM, we have expanded amazingly quickly, and we have much to celebrate. Please join us this Tuesday as we set up indoors. Creating and supporting a year round market is an important step toward a healthy food economy. Thank you for continuing to eat fresh, local foods!
Indoor location: Pilgrim UCC, 2592 W. 14 St, Cleveland, OH 44113
Same good time: Tuesday, 4-7PM, once a month
In addition to an amazing selection of produce (see below in vendor highlights), we will have grass-fed, organic cheeses, grass-fed organic meats, goat cheeses, free-range eggs, pierogies, pizza sauces, Italian breads, hot sauces, salsas, apples, pies, whole grain breads, an awesome array of baked goods, vegan snackies, granolas, waffles, spices, teas, coffees, vegan chocolates, jellies, a wide selection of spices, and a small selection of crafts, Don’t forget your knives! Kevin Noon is a fine knife sharpener; he can make your Thanksgiving Day a great deal more pleasant.
Pilgrim Church, here we come! The Fellowship room has a great atmosphere for our market; nice & cozy & warm. We greatly appreciate them opening their doors to us once again this year. We would also like you to know that Pilgrim has a food pantry, which distributes non-perishable food items two times a week. Please donate if you can. http://www.pilgrimalive.org/index/food-pantry. Fresh produce donations will continue to be taken to St. Augustine’s, who support us during our months outdoors.
Some other great news: We can continue the EBT Incentive Program. Our Ohio Direction Card customers who use at least $5 receive an extra $5, compliments of a generous donation from the George Gund Foundation. More info: http://employment.cuyahogacounty.us/

‘”Very autumnal,” I hear people saying with a little shudder as they scurry past looking pinched, as though they’d received a touch from the first frosts before there’d been time to lay in a store of nuts. One thing certain, about autumn, is that it will be autumnal. Hurrah for autumnal autumn, I say, but this is all a matter of temperament and does not even depend on whether you’re a gardener or not’

Peace & warmth,
