Winds of Change

This summer seems to be deviating a lot from the norm, what with pleasantly warm days interspersed with dreadfully high humidity, followed by torrential downpours, and back again.  Sometimes it's enough to make your head spin, especially when your Farmers Market has to cancel due to dangerous weather.  As always, Winter Goddess Foods rolls with the punches and continues onward delivering our tasty products wherever we go.

A number of changes have happened this year with most of them being for the good.  Unfortunately due to the physicality involved in outdoor venues, and with Terry and I getting older now, we have resigned ourselves to only doing two Farmers Markets this year rather than three or more.  Rest assured, Winter Goddess Foods isn't going anywhere anytime soon.  We just need to structure our time and work a little differently.  Don't worry though.  You'll still see our smiling faces and welcoming hearts at both the Midtown and Linden Hills Farmers Markets for the foreseeable future!

We are very excited to announce that our company has partnered up with MN Brands for Good, a wonderful entity that provides fundraising opportunities for schools and organizations using socially conscious local companies to supply uniquely Minnesota made products as their offerings. This is a far cry from the same old tired, stale candy, boring wrapping paper or dated magazine subscriptions.  Organizations can now make money while supporting local sustainable companies in the process.  It is truly a WIN-WIN for everyone! If your Minnesota school or organization needs to fundraise and wants to break away from the "same old, same old," you can find their link HERE.

We have also signed on to a number of sales events for the latter part
of the year including the Minnesota Arboretum's Art in the Garden in August, and the Arboretum's 2-day Holiday Show in December.  Please be sure to check the left panel of our page for the updates to our Show and Market schedule so you don't miss out on your favorite Winter Goddess products for gift giving and for your own personal pleasure. (Remember, Toffee, Truffle and Turtle season begins anew starting in October!)

That's all for now.  Please live in LOVE and be kind to each other, especially during the "Dog Days of Summer."
