We’re grateful for the tremendous response of the Market2Go customers over these long months of the pandemic. January order levels have fallen below break-even for our operation, so we need to know what our community needs from the market and what you can support.

If you want to help keep the market going, here’s what you can do.

  1. Order regularly from the market, so we can return to “break-even” levels of sales.
  2. Encourage your friends and family to place orders.
  3. As often as possible, while you’re on the market site, go to the “Market Contributions” category and donate what you can to help sustain the market.
  4. Share any ideas you have about how we can improve our outreach to customers.

Many of you are helping already. Our heartfelt thanks to all our loyal customers for your orders and your generous contributions.

This week at Market2Go we’re appreciating some of the many uses of sweet potatoes, a nutritional All-Star – one of the best vegetables you can eat. They’re loaded with carotenoids, and are a decent source of vitamin C, potassium, and fiber. Cook and then mash in one or more of your favorite spices – sweet (cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice) or savory (cumin, coriander, paprika, chili). Some of our suggestions include:

  • Sweet Potato Pancakes are the perfect cozy breakfasts to warm you up on a chilly morning. Be sure to get some pecans for a crunchy topping!
  • Whether your burgers be beef, turkey, or veggie, Curried Sweet Potato Wedges make a quick and tasty side dish.
  • Sweet Potato Hot Cocoa is easy to prepare, and its toppings can be customized to your heart’s content!
  • This Sweet Potato Hash with Ground Turkey is equally healthy and delicious as breakfast or as dinner.

SPECIAL THIS WEEK!

4 & 20 Bakers food truck will be back on site this week, featuring WHOLE pizzas as well as their popular popup combos. Order online and select your choice: Cheese, Pepperoni, Dixie Pig or Garden Party (vegan).

It’s going to be awfully chilly this week, so we recommend that you keep warm with some soups and stews from Market2Go’s ever expanding recipe section:

If you’re in need of some ready-made soup then be sure to check out the great options that are available from Ma’s Country Pantry and Kim’s Cheese Straws in the prepared food section. Whatever you may choose, remember to get yourself some fresh baked bread or rolls from Sugar Magnolia, or make your own from Freeman’s Mill Stone ground flour and cornmeal to serve alongside it!
