The Wednesday Market: More Winter?
Did you know that yesterday was Groundhog Day?
According to legend, if a groundhog sees his shadow on February 2nd, there will be six more weeks of winter weather. If he does not see his shadow, there will be an early spring.
According to Punxsutawney Phil of Gobbler’s Knob, Pennsylvania, spring will arrive early this year. Not so, says Georgia’s own Gen. Beauregard Lee. According to the AJC, “On the coldest morning so far this season, Georgia’s resident weather-prognosticating groundhog, Gen. Beauregard Lee, emerged from his Gwinnett County lair only to be chased back inside by his shadow, declaring that we can expect another six weeks of winter.”
Whether spring is just around the corner, or another six weeks away, cold mornings like yesterday deserve a hot, hearty breakfast. With that idea in mind, consider all of the items that The Wednesday Market has to inspire you to prepare a hot breakfast:
Bacon; hot, medium, or mild pork sausage; eggs; honey (to put in your hot tea!); breads, biscuits, and muffins, heated up or toasted; fresh, whole milk (to pour over a bowl of steaming oatmeal); and beautiful preserves, jellies, and jams to top your favorite toast.
The Wednesday Market is open. Log on to www.wednesdaymarket.locallygrown.net and place your orders before 10 p.m. on Monday for pick-up between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The Market Managers
ALFN Local Food Club: Just Pretend It's Outside (Open!)
The Market is open. Time for some menu building: veggies, fruit, bread, meats.
PLUS, a lot of seedlings and plants, courtesy of ABC Nature Greenhouse and Herb Farm. Plenty of house plants, heirloom vegetables, and herbs. Based on the weather outside, I’d say you could do some good growing right now. Speaking of which, why can’t this computer be outside, along with our online market? It is beautiful out there. I know it’s hard to stay indoors and place your order. Maybe you can take your i-Phone outside and order in the sunshine?
