Market Time! --New Promotion for June! Please Read!!


Hello RCM Community! We’ve reached another market day!

A big thank you to Holland Family Honey Farm for coming out last Thursday to the market day and setting up their awesome bee display. Also, a big thanks to all of you who were able to come by and meet the Hollands!

We’ve wrapped up our first promotional period, and we have a winner! May’s winner for the RCM Referral Promotion Program was Carey Bosold. She has won a $25 credit to her RCM account good for anything on the market!

Our NEW promotional program starts this week. Here’s what you need to know:

Brand new customers who place an order in the month of June will automatically be entered for a chance to win another $25 RCM account credit. Cool huh? We want to encourage all of you who may have signed up with the market, but haven’t quite gotten around to placing an order yet to do so! It could win you a $25 RCM account credit!

Thanks to everyone for you continued support for RCM and what we stand for here in the Russellville community!

Featured Farmer Correction


Hello RCM’ers!

Just a quick clarification on our Featured Farmer. Dates were mixed up, and Holland Family Honey Farm will be visiting our market pick-up day NEXT week on June 6th, and not this week, as originally posted.

We’re sorry for the mix-up!

Hope to see you all at the market day this Thursday!

Thanks!

Market Reminder


Only a few more hours of ordering time for the market! Be sure to get your orders in by 10:00 p.m. tonight!

Don’t forget we have new pick up times available from 4:00pm to 6:30pm.

We look forward to seeing you at the Market on Thursday at All Saints Episcopal Church!

RCM is Open!


Welcome to market day, our favorite day of the week!

Don’t forget, this is our last week for the RCM Referral Program’s first drawing! Be sure to give those RCM business cards (including your name on the back) to as many people as you can so that they can turn them in when they order, and give you a chance to win a $25 credit to your RCM account!

Be on the lookout for our Featured Farmer this Thursday: Holland Family Honey Farm. They will be showcasing their honey products, including their awesome honey scrubs! Their products can also be found right here on our market!

Last week’s market was home to our newest farmer, Mike Nelson of Honest to Goodness Homemade. He graciously let us sample his delicious cookies, and everyone who tried them agreed: They’re delicious! His products are now on the market, and include the Uncommon Chocolate Chip, the Special Sour Cream, and the Look of Surprise Oatmeal, among many others! Be sure to find your way to some of his delicious cookies this week!

In the recent world of Food News… Yesterday marked the passing of the March Against Monsanto in 52 countries and 436 cities across the world. The Senate is still strongly opposed to a GMO labeling measure in the United States, while countries like Germany and France have altogether banned GMO products. What do you think about it? We’d love to hear your opinions on our Facebook Page, or in person on a market day. Community discussions about these topics get people listening!

I think we have shifted toward Spring (finally). This means more fresh produce coming your way very soon!

The Market is Open!


Hello RCM Community! Welcome to another market week!

First thing’s first!… Our RCM referral program will soon be drawing its first winner on May 30th. That means there are only two weeks left for you to get your name in the drawing for the $25 credit to your RCM account! How does it work? Just get some RCM business cards from us (or use ones you already have), write your name on them, and give them to a friend before he or she makes an order on the market. Once they place their order, they drop off the card with your name on it to us when they pick up their first order! That’s it! You’re entered!

If you missed out on it last week, RCM now has ground goat and goat chops for sale! Don’t miss out on this delicious treat.

RCM Opening Bell


Welcome to another market week, and to healthy, delicious, locally grown food!

We have Drewry Farms back on the market this week, with new offerings including green tomato bread, rum balls, iced cookies, and Mother’s Day gift baskets.

That’s right! This coming weekend marks the celebration of all the mothers out there on Mother’s Day. How better to show mom you appreciate her than with the gift of local food. Don’t forget RCM has gift cards in any amount you want to give! They are the first items on the market page!

Here’s something that has been on my radar lately, and should be on everyone’s: The USDA and EPA recently released a report on the honeybee disappearances in the United States. Here’s the news story: Colony Collapse Disorder Report. You can also find the entire USDA report at the bottom of the news story.
