Market for July 17th

Sometimes we wonder what our Rosie would think about her girls running a farm, a restaurant, and a farmers market all while composing a weekly newsletter for 1,500 readers, working a full-time job and raising about a dozen of her great-grandchildren.

She'd shake her head and laugh...and then she'd ask us to squeeze in her grocery list and a trip to town to get her hair cut.

She was proud of us when we worked hard...but she always thought we could probably work a little harder. She told us stories our whole lives about picking cotton and pulling her babies, who couldn't walk yet, down the rows on tow sacks. Now, that was hard work.

Today there's a two-year-old who runs down those same rows screaming because he hates the squishiness of mud. There are a lot more of us, so our hours at the farm are not as long as those Rosie spent toiling there. What we wouldn't give to pick those vegetables and take some of them straight into the house and to her table. She'd take some credit--what with HER land producing such fine eating and all. We miss her.

Anyway, here's this week's newsletter.

Come see us this Saturday, July 17th at THE Downtown Market!

Market hours are 7-11 a.m. under the big top tent at 101 E 10th Street in Anniston, across from the front doors of the public library.

Ireland Farms is an intensive market farm located in Alpine, Alabama growing a wide array of fruits and vegetables, and are most noted not only for their efforts at sustainable growing practices but also for the fun they have pulling growing things from the ground.

Anniston Downtown Farmer's Market is Back

One thing's for sure--Rosie's girls will flatout swoop in and try to take over some stuff. Stacey has been president of THE Downtown Market's steering committee going on two years, and now Michelle is serving as the market's manager. They do like to be Boss Queens...just like their Mamaw.

Here's Michelle...in all her squinty-eyed glory. Must have left her sunglassses in the fields.
