Champaign, OH:  Long Monday

Gonna be a long Monday
Sittin’ all alone on a mountain
By a river that has no end
Gonna be a long Monday
Stuck like the tick of a clock
That’s come unwound, again

Well, here are, racing into another Monday, and I’ve got John Prine as my backdrop music.

The market is open, and ready for your orders, and while you are singing to your own long Monday, make the week easier, brighter, and healthier by shopping all the loveliness of that this locally grown market has to offer!

Perfect for Easter, our sprinkle sugar cookies are dye-free & delicious. They have all the fun, Spring pastel colors without the icky, artificial food coloring. Treat yourself to a 6-pack (or two!) today. They are super soft, organic & dairy-free too!

Attention gluten-free fans!!! New this week, try our chocolate crinkle cookies. They check all the healthy boxes – gluten free, dairy free, & organic – and you’ll miss absolutely none of it because these cookies are incredibly rich in chocolatey flavor thanks to lots of raw cacao powder and are made with unrefined coconut oil for a heart-healthy, moist cookie that everyone loves – yes, even the non-gluten-free people! Add a 6-pack to your cart – you won’t be sorry.

Allergy season already starting to get to you? Pick up a 2-pack of our sinus steamers to add to your shower & enjoy the decongestion you need, naturally, thanks to peppermint, eucalyptus oils & menthol crystals. These are a customer favorite for good reasons!

Safe and Sound Soap Co.:
This week I am featuring my small batch bar soap. It’s all natural made with nurturing ingredients for your skin, like olive oil and coconut oil, sweet almond oil, oats, and honey from my family’s bee farm. You will LOVE our Honey and Oat soap. It will soften up your skin after one use! Also if you haven’t tried our laundry soap yet, you need to grab some this week. It comes in a 64 oz container that washes 32 loads, as well as a 128 oz container that will wash 64 loads. Both sizes have a handle on the container for easy pouring. My laundry soap comes in Lemon Eucalyptus, Lavender, Orange Bergamot, Citrus, and Lemon Lavender Mint. Each of these are scented with a special blend of high quality essential oils that will not only freshen your clothing with a light scent, but also has cleaning properties to help disinfect your clothing! Don’t forget I also sell my own bottled hand sanitizer spray and non-toxic car air fresheners. These items make excellent gifts for Easter baskets, Mother’s Day, or Birthdays!

Few new items this week.- Chicken, prosciutto pesto lasagnas for spring. We are taking the journey of exploring different and special lasagnas this spring and summer season. Delicious pesto sauce with spinach, sun dried tomatoes and of course lots of Italian herbs and cheeses.

Bruschetta. It’s tomato time and we have been wanting to do this for a while now. Tomatoes marinated in extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh basil and of course raw garlic. A great snack with some crackers, toast points, or you can even put it in a bed of salad greens.

Roasted Garlic and cauliflower soup. We roast the cauliflower with garlic, shallots, and thyme in the oven for one hour before blending it with vegetable stock. And finish it with truffle oil and fresh squeezed lemon juice. It’s a gluten free, dairy free, and vegetarian. And it’s a home run of a soup.
