Vol. 6 Issue 5

We have had four weeks of the drive thru and we think we have the hang of it.  Thank you to all the volunteers!  We really appreciate all your help!
Please make sure you read through this email.Calvert Farm will be off this week. A message from Waltz Family Farm:
“We are currently experiencing a low supply of meat, but not for long.  So….we will not open the online store this week since we are not sure of what will be available this Saturday at market.  We will know Thursday morning and I will send an email then.
For now,  Thank you for helping us keep on farming the right way !  It takes a little time to catch up.  For example,  We recently took 2 steers and 4 hogs to the butcher.  From Pasture to freezer it’ll be about 4 weeks, maybe 5 since the butchers are as busy as we are.  Once we get through this lean time we should have a steady supply.  We ramped up our butchering schedule a few months ago.”

Calvert Farm will be off this week.

We are still in need of volunteers (18 and older) to help direct traffic and to check customers in for the market each weekend. The shifts will be on Saturday from 8:45am to 12:15pm.  Please click HERE to sign up for a shift. If you have any questions please let Scarlet know.

So, we have a few requests:  
1. That you, our customers, are patient and caring.  This is all new to us and our vendors.
2.  That you pre-order all of your products from the individual vendors.  Many of our vendors will close their preorders by 10pm on Wednesday.
4.   We’ll have volunteers directing traffic. Cars will follow a single file line, starting with the Market Table to get any information.  Customers will stay in their cars, keeping 6′ distance as much as possible.
5.  Open your trunk or back doors so vendors can place items directly inside.
6.  Exit by the charging station and enjoy the rest of your day.  🙂

Just some thoughts: 
-Have your name (that you put on the Sign-Up) on a piece of paper and on the dashboard.  That way the vendors can see the names.
-Please prepay as much as possible to save time.
– Please keep interactions brief in order to keep the line moving.
-Vendors can not use your reusable bags and our farmers can not use your collection of egg cartons at this time.
-Please leave your pets at home.  We miss them but hope to see them soon too!
– Email if you have any questions.  Thank you again for your patience!  🙂
