Vol. 9 Issue 23

Another rainy Saturday?  Crazy.  But we’ll be at the farmers market ready with some great fruits, veg, meats and much more!

A note from Waltz Family Farm:
I finally have Thanksgiving Turkey info and pricing!  We all know how costs have gone up & turkey feed has as well.  Whispering Breeze Farm is offering Turkeys to us at a very good price.  These turkeys will be fresh and ready for pick-up at the Hollywood Farmers Market in College Park on November 18th   from 9am-1pm.  Keep them in the coldest part of your fridge or on ice and they’ll be great till  Thanksgiving or the Friday/Saturday after.  If having a Thanksgiving meal later, then I’d freeze them.

Fresh Whole Turkeys – $6.40lb *$20 deposit (non-refundable) is required.  Come to the market to order and give deposit.
Sizes are  SMALL TURKEYS 13-16 lb  serves 4-6 people,  MEDIUM TURKEYS 17-20 lb serves 7-10,
LARGE TURKEYS 21-24lb serves 12-16 people   X-LARGE TURKEYS 25lbs+ serves 17-22
If you are having another meat then the turkey would serve more

Turkey  Breasts boneless, average weight 4-5lbs for $11.50 lb

Turkey Legs $7.50 lb
Turkey Thighs $12.50 lb
*no wings this year
I’d like orders by Saturday Oct. 28th.   There’s a good chance Waltz Family Farm will not be at the Hollywood Farmers Market on November 4th – we will be at Cheverly Community Market & another event near our farm.  If you are not ordering a whole bird you can email me your Turkey Order – tell me how many of what item and leave your phone #.  I will respond once I write your order down. You will get a reminder email  for pickup.

Did you know we accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits so customers can purchase fresh produce and locally made products at our market? To use SNAP benefits, customers can swipe their EBT cards at our Maryland Market Money table. We will charge the card for any amount requested in exchange for tokens that can be spent with eligible vendors.  Through the Maryland Market Money program, the market will also match up to $30 in SNAP benefits spent at the market – so a $10 charge on a customer’s EBT card will give them $20 to spend!  Many of our vendors also accept Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) checks. Checks can be used to buy fresh fruits, vegetables, cut herbs, and honey. These checks are spent directly with vendors who are registered to accept the checks as payment, and then those vendors will write the customer a receipt. If the customer brings the receipt to the market table, we will match up to $10 in FMNP spending with additional Maryland Market Money tokens. Bringing a $10 FMNP check to the market can allow a customer to spend $20!

The College Park Community Food Bank and Hollywood farmers market are partnering on a canned food drive. Bring your unexpired canned goods to the market and leave them at the market management tent. Look for the tall white bag with the College Park Community Food Bank logo on it.
