These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things (Part I)

Cue Julie Andrews...here are a few of my favorite (organizing) things.

What are your favorite things that help to simplify and organize your life?

Mag Tard is Mulberry Street Market's Newest Produce

The Mulberry Street Market is proud to present the band Mag Tard this Wednesday for an acoustic set. 

The band is well known around Macon, and will be the first full band to play the market. The event is the market's first ever fifth Wednesday music extravaganza. 

All of the band members are well known to the market and participate in one of the vendor's Community Supported Agriculture fund. They encourage everyone to shop, buy and eat local and are proud to participate in the market's efforts to get Maconite's eating healthful foods. 

The music will start at 6 p.m. and will wrap up with the market at 7. 

Of course, great music is not the only thing in the menu this week. The market's standard fare of fresh produce, baked goods, meats, jams, jellies, and potted plants will be available as well.

Holistic Healthfulness at the Mulberry Street Market

This week at the Mulberry Street Market, patrons will be able to get free blood pressure screenings and tips on healthy living from Mid GA Ambulance. 

Staff and the ambulance will be on site to provide the screenings and perhaps entertain the kids as well. 

With screenings and local fruits and vegetables, the Mulberry Street Market is definitely the healthiest place to be on Wednesday afternoon. 

The vendors this week will be providing tomatoes, greens, melons, flowers, jams, jellies, baked goods, and grassfed meats. 

The Mulberry Street Market takes place Wednesday from 4-7 p.m. in Downtown Macon in front of the Grand Opera House. It is co-sponsored by the City of Macon, Macon Roots, and Community Health Works.

Even as crops change, all things fresh are at the Mulberry Street Market

Crops, by their very nature, vary as the weeks go by. You will never see all of the same greens, fruits, and veggies at the market each week.

But you will always find something fresh. 

The market is the proud home of many different baked goods that are fresh, delicious, and have very few ingredients. For instance, bread found at the market will never include a list a preservatives and artificial taste and color enhancers. 

Also, where else can you find the inventiveness of the "everything cookie" or a delicious peach coffee cake or an invigorating espresso brownie all homemade and sold to you by the hands who made them. 

Meat makes a statement at Mulberry Street Market

While the hallmark of the farmers' market may always be the tomato, the Mulberry Street Market is proud of its other signature items as well. 

Since the first week of the Mulberry Street Market, Maconites have had the experience of purchasing local, hormone free, grass fed beef and pork. While market-goers were skeptical at first, the familiar sight of Hunter Cattle Co and Evergreen East Farm (specializing in pork) have become signatures of the success of the market. 

Market organizers like to joke that the market is truly full service, as it is only place in town you can get a fresh, all local BLT (that is, if you don't take mayonnaise). 

Both vendors have had luck in providing meat to local restaurants, most notably the Rookery, who has started "Locavore Thursdays" offering specials using products bought at the Market the day before. 

Last week the market welcomed two new meat vendors.
