Wren's Wednesday Market opens soon

We are back! Better later than never I guess! Did not intend for our break to last this long, but we will have our market on Wednesdays for the month of November. The Winter Market will start in December on Saturdays.
We will try our best to provide our cherished customers with a good variety of high quality locally grown, raised and made vegetables, fruit, flowers, meats, eggs, canned goods and breads!
We have a great group of partner farms that rotate this market as they have product available. As you may know many of our partner farms are also members of the Fayetteville Farmers’ Market and other local markets. We are a separate market and so as not to conflict we shift this market to Wednesday evening.
We are a little different than a traditional farmers
market in that you may pre-order, then pick -up your order. The benefit is that your produce will be there waiting for you, and parking is convenient ! However we do sell some extra produce off the tables, first come...
Our pick-up day will be
Wednesday 3:30 to 7pm. Same location- the Fayetteville Firefighters' Association building (A.K.A. the old Greyhound bus depot) at 1041 South School Street in Fayetteville.
Look for our portable sign out front.
---------------------------------------------------TO ORDER---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Its easy! Please send a reply email to us with a list of each product you would like separated by farm. This will help me in collecting the orders for each farm. Farm initials will be fine(or copy and paste).I will always reply back when I receive your order, if you have not gotten a reply within a day please send it again. PLEASE HAVE YOUR ORDER TO ME BY MIDNIGHT SUNDAY, again this will greatly help me in assembling the orders, which go out to each farm Monday morning. When you come on Wednesday go to each farms table to purchase your order.
2 qt tomatoes
1 grape jelly
1 qt honey
2 whole chickens
2 doz chicken eggs
1 wtg mix
1 lettuce only mix
Please keep in mind some items may be in limited supply- orders are filled in the order they are received!
***Please !!!***
, we ask that you do not place an order if you are not sure that you will be able to pick it up! Please understand we, as vendors take great pride in what we do and strive to bring you the best product possible. For some, our product is perishable and at times products are in limited supply. When these orders do not get picked up, another customer might have missed an item they wanted and the farmer may have missed that sale. Since our market is just once a week , fresh produce is then wasted. Other vendors with higher cost items may only have a few orders, and a missed sale makes a difference. There are time and fuel expenses incurred by all. WE DO UNDERSTAND THINGS HAPPEN! If something comes up unexpectedly, we certainly understand. But please be mindful of this for us! I will have a master list if you forget what you ordered. An unclaimed order could be set on the table for sale after 6pm unless we hear different from you. We will gladly hold it if you know ahead that you will be late.
If you do not receive an order letter by Friday evening each week, please let me know! If you did not get the order letter please check first and make sure the emails did not get kicked into your SPAM, you may need to flag it as a safe sender.
I will always reply back when you order, if you don’t get a reply within a day please send it again!
------------------------------------------------NEW NEWS !!!--------------------------------------------------

Welcome to the new people on our customer email list! We are glad to have you and look forward to meeting each of you!
You may have noticed a new email address for this order letter, I have changed a few things- if there is anyone that received this order letter and DOES NOT want to be on the list or has an email change please let me know. It will go out in one large group mailing now - please spread the word incase some do not see this because it went into their spam- (remember I am a farmer not a techie!-Deb)
- This spring and summer turned out to be rough one for all of us! From early flooding to hail to drought and heat! But that’s farmin’ for ya! Our melon crops were a total loss this year due to crows, drought and heat. Just as well though I suppose, about the time we suspended our last Wednesday Market my Mother’s health started a rapid decline. My time was consumed with Mom and Dad this summer. Mom passed away on September 7. I am very grateful that I was able to do it , however I think the Wednesday Market suffered and I apologize for that. Now we are ready to get back to it!We are considering offering MUSHROOMS at the Winter Market this year! Let me know if this is something you would be interested in. (See below)
- We have plenty of fresh CHICKEN and will offer TURKEYS this year too! If you want a turkey for Thanksgiving we need your order by NOVEMBER 16.
We will also sell
FIREWOOD again this year. (See below)
- We will offer CHRISTMAS WREATHS again this year. We will start bringing them in December for the first Winter Market. If you would like a wreath(s) earlier please let me know. We will not be taking bread orders for a few weeks (Beverly will have surgery this week, please keep her in your prayers-Deb) but our Angus beef will be available.(See below)
