The Launch of Our FoodStampsX2 Campaign (with a great video to boot)!

Posted 9/2/2013 7:05pm by Tuesday Market.

Hey Market Friends --

Today we launched our online Indiegogo fundraising campaign for FoodStampsX2!

As Tuesday Market friend and Jackson St. School teacher Mary Cowhey says, “If you believe in the importance of eating fresh, local food -- not just for you but for all your neighbors in the community -- this is a way you can make that happen." Watch the great video below to get a more in-depth sense of the program and why we're asking for your support.

For the next month, please contribute and spread the word. Thanks to the awesome Stephen Richardson from Landry Communications for helping us tell the story of FoodStampsX2 in video form. Let us know what you think of it -- what questions you still have -- why you think this program is great. And help us keep running the program through 2014 by donating to our campaign and/or by passing the word on to other people.

Pie Update!

If you're a pie maker, stock up on your pie ingredients this week to make your best pie for the pie contest next Tuesday, September 10th. If you're a pie eater, buy your ticket this week or clear your schedule for next week.

If a kid friend of yours wants to enter and, like our boy, is stuck on winning, let them know that every kid under 13 that enters a pie will get a honey stick from Red Barn Honey just for entering. The winner will get a jar of honey of their own plus husk cherries and lunchbox peppers from Old Friends Farm and Deanna Cook's multicultural kids cookbook.

If your gluten-free friends are saying, I don't eat pie. Tell them that there will be gluten-free entries at the bake sale as well. Best gluten-free pie will receive a package of gluten free pancake mix and a pint of maple syrup from Justamere Tree Farm. 

Most beautiful pie will get a special bouquet made just for you from Old Friends Farm.

And the best overall pie will get a bag of market goodies from multiple vendors.

All runners up get bags of apples from Apex Orchards and all 3rd places get a special goat cheese truffle from Sangha Farm. Yum.

Apex will have loads of peaches this week to help you in your pie making capacity -- utility ones for canning or pie making -- in addition to picture perfect ones.

Finally, we are super lucky to have the acoustic duo Sweet Wednesday at market this week. They're from the Boston area but tour extensively and found us somehow.

Here are some great photos from last week.
