Market is Open - CHECK OUT Dandelion Farm


Hi All:

The January Market is now open and we have an exciting new addition. Dandelion Farm (see description below) is doing a trial run this month and if it works out, we’ll be offering their lettuces every month. There are two choices available:
1) Bag of Dandelion Farm Lettuce Mix – A colorful and mild tasting lettuce mix consisting of red and green leaf lettuces and romaine.
2) Bag of Ovation Greens mix – A spicy and nutty lettuce mix consisting of kale, tatsoi, mizuna, arugula, and mustard.

Each bag is 1/2 pound. The price per bag is $7.

If you’d like to order any of the lettuces, please make a note on your order or email me directly.

Harmony Hills is still on hiatus this month but will be back in February.

The Market will close Monday night as usual but please remember that pick-up will be next Friday, the 17th from 4:30 to 6:30 at my house.

Thanks so much.

*About Dandelion Farm*
At Dandelion Farms we utilize a vertical hydroponic growing system. This growing system is built inside a repurposed 40-foot shipping container. Growing in a closed environment allows us to grow lettuces and hearty greens year-round with weekly harvests. The container’s closed environment keeps unwanted organisms out, greatly reducing the need to use any harmful herbicides or pesticides. The use of hydroponics allows the farm to use 90% less water than traditional farming methods. We use approximately 1 gallon a day. All packaging supplies are reusable or compostable. Our desire is to grow as efficiently as we can with little impact on the environment.

Correction - January FFFN Dates


Hi Again:

The January Market will open on Friday, January 10th (not the 11th) and pick up will be on Friday, January 17th.

Sorry about that.

Happy Sunday.

2020 Dates & New Pick-Up Day


Hi All:

Happy New Year!!!!

In order to accommodate the needs of our wonderful producers, I’m making a change in the FFFN schedule this Spring. If it works out, I’ll be doing the same thing in the Fall.

The orders will still open on a Friday, with the first one coming up on Friday, January 11th. The orders will close, as usual, on the following Monday night but the pick up day will be the Friday after that from 4:30 to 6:30 – NOT WEDNESDAY.

I hope this won’t cause any great disruption in your lives. I will continue to be as flexible as needed.

Here’s a link to the page with the other dates: https://mccollomsmarketsl.locallygrown.net/.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks a million.
